If you bleed in the current DayZ version, it will heal by itself after 5 minutes. But you shouldn’t wait for that. Joining them with bandages/scraps of fabric or sewing them up with a sewing kit is also not good: You should only use them once you have cleaned them with alcohol or disinfectant.
The hit zones or hitboxes of the player characters have been adjusted. The torso is now larger and arms and legs are correspondingly smaller. This makes body armor more effective on paper, but in return, it no longer protects arms and legs from DayZ 1.13. Hitting the thorax also causes more shock damage than before, but usually ensures the wearer’s survival. Leg hits will no longer cause additional shock should the legs break.
Have you ever thought about how our ancestors got through the harshest elements? We all know how difficult things can be even with today’s modern amenities.

This is a rather unusual but very useful alternative to the typical bug out pack. The shape of the bag will allow you to store an unbelievable large amount of things. Plus, it’s very inconspicuous, especially when a hiker’s or camper’s backpack is often the easiest way to spot a person who isn’t from around the area, which can have its disadvantages. It’s a good way to pack lots of stuff without sticking out in public. We put together a guide for what to include in a bug out bag. Check it out
The Blaze 95 is currently the best weapon when it comes to taking down players safely at long distances. It has the ability to fire both bullets at once. They land in the same place at all distances, just a few millimeters apart. If you hit a player with it, he is very likely gone.
Do you know what to do when SHTF and you don’t have a bugout cabin ready? This is one of the wilderness survival hacks you should have in your sleeve: how to build a survival shelter from the California survival school.
You never know what’s inside a stream or river. It has all sorts of stuff that you probably don’t want in your system. Grab a sock and fill them with charcoal. Follow it up with a layer of sand and then finally a layer of grass. The grass will catch the large particles in the water while the sand will filter out the fine granules. The charcoal will purify the water of any harmful chemicals.
Since DayZ Update 1.13 you can also use zombies as weapons. The trick is very simple: get a lot of zombies to follow you. Then you run in a zigzag pattern, so it is impossible for them to hit you. If you run up to another player now, some of your zombie friends will prefer to chase them and not you. This trick works best with runners, but also with all other zombies – the masses do it.
Hand sanitizers may look like they’re only useful for cleaning your hands, but they’re also good for starting fires. This is because they contain alcohol, which is flammable. Simply use some of the stuff on a char cloth or some leaves or other tinder and they’ll easily catch fire from a spark. So always keep a small bottle in your pocket.
The carbon sheets that you can get from saws have been proven to be able to withstand 22 calibre pistol bullets. With just a bit of duct tape and some proper attachment, you can create armour around your backpack and clothes that will protect you from shrapnel, arrows, and certain types of bullets. They’re bendable, snap proof, and pretty darn useful. There is a caveat though, Carbon steel will rust and is not stainless steel. Always check for the health condition on your tools before use.
