The third iteration of the patch has hit the experimental branch the august 12th and here is a list of every new things that survivors will come across.
Dayz 0.48: New Weapons & Attachments
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.
Dayz 0.48: New Items
The SMERSH vest has been found. It’s a modular tactical vest that can be attached to an additional SMERSH backpack, for a total of 16 free slots! A new bag can be crafted: the Leather sack, using a deer pelt and a machete. Finally, flashbang has been fixed and spawn in heli crashsites.
Dayz 0.48: New Map Locations
Senchi (Map Designer Lead) was on vacation for the month of July. But the team worked on two new villages at the north west part of the map: Vavilovo & Sinistok. There is also new additions to the map: A WWII memorial at Gvodzno and a V3S Command Vehicle wreck that spawn items. Also, a new deer stand model has been added in-game.
Dayz 0.48: Gameplay Features
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!
Dayz 0.48: Leaked Content (Game Data Files)
As you should know, every new update give the possibility of new game data files leaks. In this update, the scary bear model has made its apparition, there no further info on it currently.
