I saw someone completely unarmed and decided not to shoot them, but somehow she sprinted right through me which left me unconscious and bleeding. I logged so I wouldn't lose much blood while my buddy came to revive me and I logged in unconscious for 5 minutes. Bleed out and died on one of my absolute best spawns. Alice pack, Lee Enfield with 6 mags, M1911 w/ 6 mags, GPS, compass, and a map, everything I could ever need to survive for quite a while. Gone to a silly little bug.


You need at least hatchet, canteen, matches, and hunting knife to survive.

Hunt animals with hatchet. Gut animals with hunting knife. Gather wood with hatchet. Make fire place with matches to cook the raw meat. Will feed you and put 1k blood back. (no more risking it for blood packs) Canteen you can refill infinitely at any source of water or well in some towns.

Try getting a map or compass or better yet GPS asap. Navigation can be a major pain without one especially at night without landmarks.


Want weapons?


Check dear stands and helicopter crash sites.

Want ammo and other goodies?

You can kill zombies with axe at night when its dark by slow crouch walking up behind them.

Yeah, that way you can just endlessly rely on the environment to stay alive. I was mostly worried about getting lost when not having a compass tongue.gif

I got sniped a few days ago after being alive for 2 weeks. I'm now taking a different angle at the game and playing in a completely different style. I'm just having some fun with the axe at the moment, I got 2 murders yesterday. All I carry now is an axe, a few bandages, 1 water and 1 food, I don't even use a backpack tongue.gif

Here's my first kill with the axe, it's not tidy but these are brutal times biggrin.gif I did get a second kill later but it didn't record properly.

kinda pissed, want to beat myself for helping someone.
I went to Stary and to get some more ammo for my m4a1 cco and someone was needing a blood transfusion and i decided ok i will be the good Samaritan, and helped. no sooner as i got done giving the transfusion, the jack shot me and killed me. I think this may be the last time i help another guy out.

I also learned it the hard way.

Next time, make it as if you were going to help the person, as soon as you see him, shoot. biggrin.gif

I don't trust anyone except for my clan mates and other steam friends who I really know for long.

I really am beginning to think that I will never get a weapon. I ran in the woods for about 30 minutes and found absolutely nothing. I managed to go in a warehouse and found 8 magazines, a larger backpack, tons of food, and scrap metal (I actually managed to fill my inventory)...but no weapon. A few minutes later I had two zombies behind me. I ran around the building a few times and proned to evade them and was immediately shot in the back....***

I have played nearly 8 hours now and still have not picked up a single weapon. ERG

really, where are you spawning, i can usually find a weapon in the first 10-15 minutes of playing I first head to the church or fire station, i can usually find a weapon there 99% of the time.

Had an eventful weekend w/ DayZ:

1 - Left off last week w/ 2 characters near Grishino w/ full gear (food, water, med supplies, assault rifles, etc.) and getting read to take off to NE Airfield to stock up on some rarer items. This was my first attempt, but we both spawned in Wilderness. Went to join another server (tried 5 different locations) and every time it wanted me to make a new Male/Female character...

2 - Started over, spawned near Elektro (my fav place to loot when spawned). Got some amazing gear, almost up to par w/ previous characters. My buddy stole a truck at Balota, was driving around the coast, running over zeds, blasting music having a great time. Then he crashes into something (while I was outside of the vehicle) and it immediately explodes and kills him directly in front of me. I wish I would have been recording lol. His screams were priceless. While I waited for him to get back to my location I ended up helping 2 players ( they were getting chased by zombies w/ no weapons and weren't bleeding so I had sympathy). They explained they started playing 2 days ago, so I was helping them w/ the basics. I ended up losing them after getting them geared up and attempted to find them again, when I get shot by a sniper outside of Elektro.

3 - Took advantage of a zed glitch where they just got stuck in place and couldn't chase me and looted the hell out of Cherno, got some great gear! Started heading up north again, set up some tents and looted some more rare spots.

I'm excited to see where this week takes me.
