Frequently Asked Questions

Why choose Paranoid

Zergs suck - seriously. Nobody likes going on a server, facing a group of 10+, and getting owned. Our Solo, Duo, and Trio servers have restricted group limits.

Doing this levels the playing field for you and your teammates. No more getting decimated with unfair numbers.

Take, for example, our group limit rule on the Solo/Duo/Trio Servers.

  • 3 Players MAX: in any base, clan, or roaming group.

  • It's not hard regarding group limits. No more than the specific group limit and players must be in a clan to play together.

  • IF a player has stopped playing for the wipe, you MUST kill the sleeper, kick them from your clan, remove their bag, and clear your TC/Turret Auth.

  • Being caught with four or more players, you will be either banned or given a final warning. If you receive a warning, you will receive a longer ban than someone who received the initial rest of the wipe ban.

We encourage community spirit on Paranoid, but, if you are breaking the rules by PVPing or Raiding as more than the intended group limit, you risk being banned.

When is wipe?!

Wipes times are Server Specific!

Click here and find which server your playing to see the wipe time!

If it's the forced/developer wipe this will be at Your Local Time on the first Thursday of the month.


This means if your server normally wipes on a Friday the server you're playing will incur another wipe after forcedwipe.

Utilise this time to get blueprints and prepare for the weekend wipe.

This gives us a 24-hour grace period to fix any issues with the update, plugins, exploits, anything that can and regularly does happen on forcewipe.

  • - Amsterdam (EU)
  • - New York (US)
  • - Chicago (US)
  • - Singapore (SG)

Raiding/Roaming with anyone who is not part of your clan is NOT allowed.


No more than 3 players in any base or raiding/roaming group.


No more than 2 players in any base or raiding/roaming group.


EVERYONE is your enemy. There are no excuses.

Swapping out Players

You can replace players if one of your team members is offline - if a player has stopped playing then you MUST do the following:

  • Kill the sleeper
  • Kick them from your Clan/Team
  • Remove their sleeping bags
  • Clear TC / Turret Auth
  • Change Codes

This also does not mean you can roam with an AFK player in your base (They still count as an online member of your team)

If you are caught with 4 or more players you will be either given a last warning or you will be banned

If you continue to break our rules even after warning kicks from our staff, you will be banned for a longer period than a player who is outright banned for teaming



Base Giveaways

If you wish to give your base away if you are leaving for the wipe, you MUST do the following:

  • Remove all bags
  • Clear Auth on All TC/Turrets
  • Unlock All Doors
  • F1 Kill when you are done

You cannot be in the base at the same time as the user you are giving it to.


Community Events

We encourage community spirit on Paranoid but if you want to host a community event such as a disco or an art gallery you need Admin or above permission to do so.

We do not however allow you to run hotels that exceed the group limit of the server you are on.

Do admins play?

We believe Admin being allowed to play servers they have power on is a conflict of interest.

Our admin cannot unvanish or even interact with anything in the world - they are spectators, here to monitor and nothing else.

By purchasing one of our products, you agree and accept that you have read and understood our terms of service.

2. Kits and Packages

If you have purchased VIP, VIP+, or MVP, you will receive 50% of the total shown on the store in each of your two uses of the /kit command. The command will reset every wipe. Region Rank kits are not server-specific, but other kits are per server. We will move your packages only if requested within the first week of purchase and only once total per 30 days.

3. Subscriptions and Payments

Payments for subscriptions will automatically be taken every 30 days. To cancel a subscription, contact the Support Bot on Discord and request cancellation.

4. Kits Access and Restrictions

We delay access to some kits after a server wipe to maintain server balance and fair gameplay. We block certain kits and items for specific amounts of time to balance the server between paying and non-paying players.

5. Refunds and Replacements

We will not offer refunds after you have claimed your kits. Lost items due to in-game death or raiding will not be replaced.

6. Bans and Rules

We reserve the right to ban you without refund for breaking server rules or for other specified reasons. Bans and rules are subject to the discretion of server admins and can be changed at any time.

10. Agreement

If you do not agree with these terms, please do not use this service.

Why is my kit only giving half?

We understand that losing valuable items during PVP can be quite disheartening for our players. To mitigate the impact of accidental losses, we provide only half of the displayed items on each of the two uses of the command. This approach lessens the blow to the user, as they won't lose the entire kit in a single instance of PVP.

Please note that there is a 900-second timer per use of the command, which means you can only use the command once every 15 minutes.
