This may have been the most equipped guy in Day Z EVAR I just won Day Z

A few of us are attempting to meet up and proceed inland, we talk on skype and are recording for youtube. Let us know if you want in.







Helpful Tips:

HOW TO SWITCH PACKS
Remove any items from around the pack you want to pick up.
Click your current pack in your inventory.
"Drop" your current pack.
Scroll over the new pack with your mouse wheel, and select, "Take --- Pack" (the new one)
Now, "Open" your old pack lying on the ground, and transfer your gear to your new pack.

Pack Sizes
Czech Vest Pouch (6 slots)
Coyote Patrol Pack (8 slots)
Assault Pack (12 slots)
Czech Backpack (16 slots)
ALICE Pack (20 slots)
Coyote Backpack (24 slots)



Right click is your friend

You DO NOT spawn in together. Your spawn is displayed for a couple seconds in the bottom right hand corner of the screen. It is the SECOND line, the top line is simply the name of the island, Chernarus. Use the map to link up from there.

Once you leave one server, you respawn in the exact spot you were, with all your gear, in the next. If you die, you lose everything and respawn in another random location on the coast. If you meet up, then all disconnect together, you can all connect to a new server and still be together in the map.

The second row of words are in russian and should be ignored.


Running through buildings with two sets of doors will lose the zombies chasing you...if you do it correctly. Bring Zombies into a two story or more building and they walk upon entry, allowing you to melee kill them with hatchets or shoot them.


Dont wait in a building holding loot for your friends to find you. That was my mistake. Cost me very, very dearly, not only my life, but countless rounds of ammunition and a sniper rifle.

You can server hop at a loot point and rack up loot, but if you stay too long, you may find someone else there, and they may beat you to the draw.



Will update as we continue to play.

You forgot to mention it didn't kill me and the guy then drug my body forever. I think he was sodomizing me so I killed myself to save me the anguish.

Send him the link to the seananners video from the other thread, that shite was hilarious


Burge, my internet was slow yesterday, so that could have something to do with it. But check the step by step link in the OP, you can see what all goes into it.

ETA for UT fan, its free, right? Its just ARMA II and Operation whatthefrick thats 29.99, correct?

If that's the one where they shoot the chicken but the guy doesn't have a knife, that was the first one I showed him. We've both been intrigued, but you just sold him.

Do you guys use teamspeak, or is there an in-game chat?

Skype, but there is in game chat. not sure how it works, but when you get close to other survivors, you can hear them talking. We ran a bunch of zombies that were chasing us to some guys with guns, heard them talking about us running at them and zombies chasing us.

Mission was a success, too. Zombies went after them, lol
