DayZ needs a killfeed system, I was playing on a server goes by 420 big dick swingers or something along those lines, it is a battle eye protected server and yet my entire squad is killed by silent head shots 1 after another trough trees, buildings and walls, i was able to locate the player and witnessed him stop dead in his tracks turn and fire a 500m+ shot and kill my friend on the opposite side of the stone wall at north west, my other friend was shot through the red brick building by the same player, I have thousands of hours and practice shooting long range and this player shot immediately as he turns around after sprinting, and head shot me 300m away while i was laying down behind a short stone wall.

I get there are hackers and in north west its likely I will find one but the worst part is there is no way to report a hacker at all, with a kill feed system at least you could file a report.

    No it would break my immersion. A server admin can see the kill logs and you can get in contact with them and maybe the hackers will get banned from the server.

    Just so you’re all aware…. some server logs do NOT have kill info. At least, I can never see that data in my server logs. =/

    I agree with the immersion aspect maybe if upon death only the dead player could see the name of their killer?

        In some cases the person murdered sees their killer and in other cases police catch them, battle eye is useless, dayZ needs to be more strict on their hackers, it seems like it’s worse now than it ever was before

        @ N1nj4180. Have you any idea how difficult it is to get in contact with other server admins. I have with luck got contact with a handful of server admins. Not just even server admins, but just other players in general. Their DayZ names in game never f’ing match the steam names (shift-tab/ view players)
        @ SpanishJohn. DayZ is still A GAME and to know who killed you would really not be a bad thing. It could help get rid of those pretty useless players who could do nothing better with their time than ruining legit players love for this game

        In general, What fun does a Hacker get doing this. Bragging rights or good shot kills for a montage video or is it just a salty dickhead who got killed as a bambi and is seeking to get revenge on all who play the pvp part of the game.
        I have once survived a hacker (hope to believe this was the case) All friends who were pvp’ing with high end gear got killed by hacks and I was running around like a pure noob. No weapon other than an axe and noobish gear like lanterns and food and bob the builder helmuts etc etc etc and I was left alone. Well it happened just once and I started thinking it is just some hurtful/ spiteful sad sack trying to get his own way

        Easier way to get good game play is to NOT GO to the usual pvp spots, Elektro, Cherno, Berezino, Kanyshovo, NW, Tisy. Run the map where they tend to not go as it is meaningless for them. Run the quiet spots and hope to run around and make up good stories with other good minded players

    Hm, i’d like that. Not like some kinda cod stuff flashing in the middle of the screen and such. A note down where u are cold sick etc. “Name killed name”

    Make it so we can toggle it and server permission to allow or remove.
