SCUM Update Is Out, Cellphone and New Traps Added

Developer Gamepires has released the newest SCUM update version on PC adding new contents and fixing known bugs and issues in the game.

The main highlight of this update is the addition of new traps in SCUM. There are three new traps in the game and all of them are non-lethal. This includes the Flare alarm trap, Firework alarm trap, and Silent alarm trap.

The Flare and Firework alarm trap works the same. If any players who crossed your property, the alarm trap will shot in the air. Meanwhile, if you don’t want to let your enemy knows that you know their location, you can use the Silent alarm trap. Once triggered, you will receive a notification on your cellphone that someone has entered your property, making it easier for you to attack them by surprise. Speaking of cellphones, this is a new item that you can buy in the game.
