SCUM Game Guide: How to Pee, Poo, and Vomit

SCUM aims to be a fairly realistic survival game. That means alongside surviving and scavenging for food, you'll also have to urinate and defecate. Here's how to do it.

When it comes to managing resources for your character, SCUM is one of the most intense survival games in the genre. If you've played any of it, you already know that your character's vital signs can be found in an expansive menu that covers everything from protein intake to vitamin C levels and much more. You've also probably noticed you have meters for bodily functions such as peeing, pooing, and vomiting. 

Unlike other survival games such as DayZ, The Forest, and even Ark: Survival Evolved, SCUM has a digestion meter that monitors your bladder and bowel levels. As you eat food and drink water to survive, these meters will increase; eventually, you'll need to relieve yourself by urinating, defecating, or throwing up. If these meters get to high, you won't be able to function at all, making you easy pickings for other survivors and robots. 

Unfortunately, the game is covered in menus and has options it doesn't tell you much about. With everything going on, it's easy to overlook the exact option you need. 

To pee, poo, or vomit, hit "Tab". This brings up a radial menu with several options. On the right-hand side of the radial menu, you'll see a toilet symbol. Click that and three options will appear, letting you pee, poop, or puke. 

Here's a video from Youtuber Vegas og Baba Gaming showing you what the radial menu looks like, as well as which options perform what action.   

SCUM provides an interesting take on the survival experience by forcing players to monitor their bodily fluids and then relieve themselves at strategic times. You can also, you know, use the function in other ways ... 

That's all you need to know about relieving your bladder and bowels in this grossly in-depth survival game. Check out our other SCUM guides here
