As always guns get some love from developers. In this update the sawed-off Mosin, a smaller version of the popular rifle, make its apparition. The burlap warp is also available and can be crafted from burlap sac with a machete, and grass can be added to (look at the ground to add grass). It currently only fits on Mosin. A new animation was designed for running movements with raised weapon stance.

A great work has been done on the engine: watching through walls is, mostly, fixed now. Crashsites are also back and still spawn at the west side of the map. Devs they have listened to the community, Regular mode has been renamed to “Thrid person” and Hardcore into “First person”, which is a great news!

    Can’t wait! New content is coming out so fast now it’s crazy. BUT is it just me or are the zombies still kinda…broken? They’re much better than before yes, but still not completely fixed. Sadly

      Some time they pass in the wall or the door but is not a lot annoying. They are stronger becouse they change the melee weapons effect. Now there is only a little part of the animation for hit the zombie. First in all the animation you can hit the zombies. Now is more realistic i think 😀
      Sorry bad eglish, i’m italian

        and where? I was reading so many articles about the stable version of 0.48, no where stood that they haven’t fixed persistence and tents!

      • Profile photo of FAQ2chief

        actually it was stated that persistence is in stable, but only dev hosted stable servers, so it was my own fault for not reading everything clearly before i set my tent down, but then again it was kind of a dick move on the devs part to not make this information more clearly present for everyone. its one of the very last things on the list, look carefully or you might miss it

    Is it possible they will add cars in this update I heard that Brian Hicks said cars are ready to be added in a live stream a week ago.

    • noway 1 year ago

      really ?? wow but i think that zombies should be done first or persistent objects and basebuilding

    • whatnow000 1 year ago

      no. your dreaming if u think cars will hit anytime soon, give it at lest two or three months, cars and player building will be the last things added

      • dmilbradt 1 year ago

        Hey that’s just what I heard and Dean Hall posted a tweet a couple weeks ago saying cars are basically finished they just need to be tested then added.

  • Josh 1 year ago

    Since the release of this game there has been so many cool items and updates that has made Dayz even more popular than before, like new weapons, clothing, and other things that make this game more genuine and unique there are still many things that still need to be added. The only thing that needs to be added is a new long range rifle, and make the M4/AK101 rounds more common. Thank you for your efforts and please consider.
