Item Asylum is one of the most chaotic experiences on Roblox by being an item and location randomizer. Its game modes typically function similarly to a shooter’s, with the added caveat of your items being randomized based on your chosen class.

With hundreds of items to choose from, this game will often catch you off-guard as you play through the matches. Arm yourself with the most comical-looking weapons and take on other players in this reference-filled Roblox experience.

Newcomers who may be a little lost on the premise of the game can use this guide as their starting point. Read through this article to understand the basics of Item Asylum and find ways to try to work around item randomization.

An introduction to Item Asylum

At its core, Item Asylum is a shooter experience peppered with memes and referential humor.

In this game, being defeated by an opponent is a certainty due to the nature of the item randomization. So, you will frequently find various items in your inventory that may either be the most powerful thing in the game or completely useless.

In a match, players will be given the choice to pick a starting class before spawning in. Use the abilities or weapons you have at your disposal to take out the opponents as many times as you can before the timer runs out. The team that completes the objective or gets the most kills wins.

This experience features ten game modes, which are randomly picked by the game at the start of each match. The following list details what each of these is about:

  • Free For All (FFA): Each player must fend for themselves and get the most kills possible.
  • Team Deathmatch: Multiple teams of players must secure as many kills of the opposing factions as possible.
  • BOSS: A cooperative mode where all players must defeat a boss.
  • Gun Game (GG): Each player receives the same set of items, which are then randomized based on the number of kills.
  • Zombie Survival (ZS): Team vs team mode where players assume the roles of zombies and survivors. Zombies must infect all survivors, while survivors must remain uninfected and alive until the timer runs out.
  • Murder (MU): Players are sorted into three teams: Sheriff, Innocent, and Murderer. Innocents are tasked with survival, the Sheriff with killing the Murderer, and the Murderer with killing the Innocents.
  • Juggernaut (JGN): One player assumes the role of a raid boss-like Juggernaut, receiving powerful weapons and an inflated HP pool. Other players must defeat them before the timer runs out.
  • Tower Control: Attack a control point as a part of the Attacker team or fend them off as a Defender to protect the tower.
  • KIT: Players choose their own item sets, which can be reselected upon dying and respawning.
  • Elimination (ELIM): All players must kill each other to determine the winner. Every player has three lives and gains extra HP with every kill. The player with the most lives wins.
