Day Z: An ARMA II mod that coud be the Zombie game we've always wanted.










FAQ



What is DayZ?

Day Z is a mod for ArmA II that puts you on a 225 square kilometer map infested with zombies and forces you to loot for supplies and weapons in order too survive. Since it's a multiplayer game, not only will you have to fend off ravenous zombies but you will interact with other players. There are no rules in Chernarus so whether you choose safety in numbers and team up with other survivors or eliminate them and keep the spoils for yourself is up to you.


What do I need to play?

You need a copy of ArmA II with the Operation Arrowhead expansion installed, the Day Z mod files and a PC that can run it.


Where can I get it?

The official DayZ site is located here. There is also a fan-made Day Z installer that can be found here.

For install instructions go here


Why is it so buggy/laggy?

Day Z is currently in Alpha, so it is in a constant state of testing and change. Coding a game isn't easy and a patch that was made to fix a previous bug could inadvertently cause bugs to crop up elsewhere. Just realize this is a work in progress and will get better with time.


I just spawned and have no idea where I am.

In game maps and navigation equipment (compass, gps, etc) must be looted. When you first log in you can check the bottom right corner as soon as you get in game to see what general area you are in. There are also online maps that show where you can find loot, the best of which can be found here, and here.

*Those are just a few of the frequently asked questions I could think of. If you have other questions or info you think I should add to this list, let me know.

I've only found a Bike in it's spawn point.

I've stolen:
Tractor
Dirt Bike
Bus
ATV

I was with a group of people that found a car at Stary.

and I met a different group of dudes in Kamarovo that had a Bus, got to drive that around until I got sniped by some ****** camping the Northern Cherno Hospital.

Finally died last night. So sad

The whole situation was hilarious though. Was inside a military tent with a buddy over in Berezino when some random dude just popped in and was aiming straight at my buddy. I was looting things at the time when he says "uhh... someone else is in here." I look around to see him and ask what we should do before I say "**** it, lets kill him" and we both open fire on him.

Recovered a ghille suit and some other nice equipment, but we stayed in that tent for far too long. I hear bullets whizzing by and my buddy dies. I drop to the ground and try looking outside the entrance of the tent before more bullets whiz by and my screen goes black. Damn it.

Learned a couple of valuable lessons though.
