Win & Lose Condition
Knives Out
Surviving is the key to get win in Knives Out. Being a hero is not the best idea but to be last one is what player should do. You want to take thing slow because each game has you up against 99 opponents.
Let's practice with solo first

Knives out have 4 mode for player to choose: Solo (1 player), Duo (2 Players), Squad ( 4 Players) and Fireteam (5 players). So for beginner player you should try to play solo mode first.

Be Careful with Toxic Gas Zone

In Knives out, there are two zones which there are Safe Zone and Toxic Gas Zone (danger zone). Player should not stay in the Toxic Gas Zone and start move to the Safe Zone.

The Toxic Gas Zone will expand with the game process! What you need to do is to leave the Restricted Area and stay in the Safe Zone.

The White Circle is Safe Zone and The Red Cricle is Toxic Gas Zone.

The Red Area that Circle by Blue Color is Bomb Area that can be kill you if you stay in that. If you accidentally stay in Bomb Area please try to find a build or house and stay in there until the bomb area disappear.

How to play when you outside of safe zone?

Most Players in Knives Out always worry about outside of Safe Zone, so they always move faster to the safe zone when time reach.

Once you outside of safe zone is not mean you have to die, but it will do damage to you until you move into safe zone. So you still have a chance to move to safe zone after you finish you loot and get all the items you want.

Once you outside of safe zone you have to get some enegy drink and some HP in other to recovery you HP. So you will not die at the toxic gas zone.

Toxic Gas Restrict in six stage:

Toxic Gas Restricted Time
Stage 1It wil give you 4m30s to looting and move to safe zone until Restricted Area. When time up the area will restrict and if you outside of safe zone, it will do some damage to you but you are not going to die immediately. You still can suvive outside safe zone maybe for 3m.
Stage 2You have 3m to move to safe zone or continue looting if you want, but when time up the toxic gas is do more damage to you than this first stage. You still can survive for maybe 2m.
Stage 3This stage give you only 2m to move to safe zone because the toxic gas is much more stronger that stage 1 and 2, so you can survive for maybe 1m.
Stage 4This stage is same as stage 3, the toxic gas is much stronger, you can only survive for 1m.
Stage 5This one is the stroger one, it give you only 1m30s to move to safe zone, so you have to move quickly because the toxic gas is too stronger, you can survive for only 30s.
Stage 6It similar to stage 5, it give you 1m30s to move and you can survive for only 30s.

For stage 1,2 and 3 you can move to safe zone slowly as you want and you can continue looting for items you want but make sure that you need to have some recovery items like Energy Drink and some HP to use.
