Survivalists are Sivian locals living out in the wilderness. They might be roaming through, squatting illegally, or poaching or stealing from the Sif Anomalous Region. You may also join as an alt-title of Survivalist, Crash Survivor, in which case you will spawn inside a crashed survival pod with some minor injuries.

This role is essentially a low-stakes survival experience with no real responsibilities or duties other than keeping yourself alive. It can be extremely difficult, or very easy, depending on your goals and the random element of the wilderness points of interest that spawn each round.

Required knowledge: How to harvest plants, how to farm, and how to not be killed by giant spiders.
Round-start to-do list: Establish a food supply. Hoard medical equipment. Not get killed by giant spiders.
Main tasks: Survive. Don't get killed by giant spiders.
Main problems: Hunger, injuries, and getting killed by giant spiders.
Bare minimum requirements: Don't get killed by giant spiders.
