The Desert Map
Instead of a normal island with water surrounding, the map in Scorched Earth is filled with sand, making it more fantastic yet challenging. It’s so rare for the natural water sources to see here. It needs water from various sources, like water well, Jugbugs, Meorellatops or even cactus. If heat exposure is too much, the heat stroke can easily happen, this side effect is very the same as an effect when you get drunk. In addition, with the severe environment, some generators and structures can get demolished.
There are three weather types in Scorched Earth, including Sandstorms, Superheat, and electrical storms. The sandstorms will limit your visibility and deplete your stamina very fast. Your water will be run out at a faster speed than just a common heat by Superheat, also it will cause Heat Stroke really fast. The electrical storms will close down all the electrical devices for the time being, and it stops the firearms from shooting.
You can prevent the Superheat from happening by moving close to the Oasis. You can have a better visibility if you use the Desert Goggles throughout the sandstorms.
