Latest SCUM Update Includes Anti-Cheat, Performance Fixes And More

A new SCUM update is now available to download on Steam, adding a few awaited features to the newly released survival title. If you were worried about cheaters and the possibility of them ruining your experience, fear not as the developers have added anti-cheat and server admin controls to SCUM in order to avoid unwanted company.

Additionally, the new SCUM update disables chat and microphone icons in the single-player portion of the game. Of course, there’s a fair share of fixes coming to SCUM through the new patch, ranging from ammo exploits to memory leak fixes.

Here are the full SCUM Patch Release Notes:
