Mars4: Sandstorm PvP Zone

Version: Coriolis (5343)

Release Date: 03.04.2024



New Features


Sandstorm PvP Zone

Away from the watchful eyes of orbital satellites, colonists can now take up arms against their fellow Martian within mighty Martian dust storms. Engage each other in the storm-thrashed mire with craftable weapons and compete to earn resources from the defeated.

Take your dues from the defeated.


The Mars4 team is proud to announce that the initial phase of the community-requested pvp content has been introduced with the arrival of Mars’ harshest inclement weather systems. These dust storms will engulf specified zones enabling PvP.


Currently there are two types of weapons available to craft in the fabricator:

  1. Automatic Rifle: A lower range automatic weapon with a fast fire rate and a 30 round magazine.

  2. DMR: A semi-automatic weapon with a slower fire rate but much greater damage per shot. It features a small 5 round magazine and enjoys extended range over the automatic rifle.


When a weapon is selected, a radial bar around the cursor will show remaining ammo count and the gun’s condition.

Controls: 

  • R - Reload

  • Right Mouse Button - Tighten aim

  • Left Mouse Button - Fire


The team is keen to expand on the available content and will be introducing new weapon types and gear to our colonists over time. As always, we look forward to your feedback regarding this new system.
