So in this video i go over some of the basics to survive chernarus.

  • you can inspect a compass instead of equipping it to see the directions
  • using steam’s web browser instead of alt-tabbing to see the dayz map
  • when alt tabbing make sure your gun isn’t ready to fire and you are not pointing at friendlies, sometimes it happens that the weapon(mostly m4) starts emptying its mag,e.g you are stuck shooting untill the mag is empty
  • aim for the head of the zombies when wielding melee weapons, 1 hit kill/ use the white dot in the middle of your screen to aid you
  • the white dot in the middle of your screen has the same accuracy as your iron sight/attachment sight
  • binoculars have the same zoom as the mosin LRS
  • always take med kits, they require 4 slots, but can carry 6 items (same for protector cases)
  • always carry at least 2 morphine injectors, or splints
  • pristine clothing absorbs more damage than ruined
  • best foor is dried milk, because it takes up 1 slot and can be used 10 times, then comes rice
  • rice will get you dehydrated fast
  • when drinking water from a water pump you can carry on drinking even after stuffed 5-10 times, don’t let it “stuffed” get dark though
  • badly damaged drinks (pipsi, nota cola, kvass) have unlimited uses (not confirmed by me, a friend told me, have yet to test it)
  • on some weird occasions clothes/items get better quality when going on a different server ( I had a badly damaged press vest and 3-4 servers after it was pristine)
  • rarest item in the game is the tactical vest
  • you can empty 60 rounds coupled mags and put them in your ammo box, this way you will have 600 rounds instead of 300 (I don’t think this causes desync any more)
  • best melee weapon is the firefighter axe>splitting axe>farming hoe/pitchfork>pickaxe>rest
  • if you find ammo make sure you press “empty” on it to be able to use it (given it’s still packaged, mosin silver-metal flat box and m4 dark orange/brown paper flat box etc)
  • ruined ammo can be split and it’s prestine again (you lose some rounds in the process)keep splitting until 5-7 or less rounds are ruined only
  • weapon cleaning kits are useless, 97% or maybe more of the weapons spawn pristine, I have never had a damaged weapon, except after firefights some weapons in your clothes maybe get damaged
  • ruined compasses still show the correct directions
  • ruined long range scopes are still pristine when you look through them
  • if you need attachments go to the tents at north west air field or balota
  • you can close the front doors of the ATC when you are at the 2nd half-floor just below control room and look at the wall
  • if you are new to the game use the dayzdb map to navigate (very useful!)
  • if you handcuff an unconscious player they will be stuck with handcuffs even if you use keys (don’t be an asshole to your friends)
  • don’t spam the A D keys to break from handcuffs, you will find yourself doing it constantly without stopping (character is stuck doing the hand move to break from the handcuffs)
  • you can find action on full servers at Berezino or NEAF
  • use rags over bandages, because they stack up to 6 times and a bandage is usable only 4 times
  • helmets protect the player from getting knocked out easily from punches and bullets
  • you can carry 2 backpacks if you have one on your shoulder and put an EMPTY one inside the other one and then put items inside the backpack thats inside your shoulder’s backpack
  • vests require 2×3 space in your backpack, pants take up 2×2 slots as well as shirts and a t-shirt takes up 2 slots, cowboy hat takes 2×2 and most of the other hats take 1 slot
  • you can put a pair of pants in your pants, but it has to be EMPTY first (see backpack-ception)
  • 1911 and FNX takes .45 ACP rounds, CR75 takes 9mm
  • currently the 1911 clip is flipped to its side and is white/also weapon repairing kits and sewing kits are flipped to their sides
  • if a clip doesn’t fit in your weapon make sure it’s not chambered first
  • canned tuna and sardines are currently invisible, but if you open them they become visible
  • if you are on a night-time server turn up your brightness and gamma
  • gas lamps are hard to pick up from the ground, but be persistent and spam “F”, they require a gas container(the blue ones) and are also the best source of light currently
  • I like to wear bright colors in-game, which doesn’t make you easily spottable if you are in the distance/ I recommend going for green camo clothing, but try to find what best fits you
  • don’t put items in your pants, because if you break a leg or two you ruin them and the items inside as well, what you can keep inside is food, but mine are always empty
  • m68 optics and RDS are kind of f***ed up at the moment, because they don’t really zoom; I suggest going for the ACOG, which can easily be found in tents
  • if you are a new spawn always tear your shirt in rage in case of emergency
  • as a fresh spawn you can make it from berezino to NWAF without food
  • be careful after leaving a roof and sprinting away, you might rubber-band and run off the roof and die
  • if you have 2 different types of mags (40 round and 60 round) and try to open a door, you will reload instead of opening, keep that in mind when pressing “F”
  • police cars often spawn 1911 on their roofs, also you will find food/maps/shoes in their trunk and inside they spawn anti stab vests
  • hiding in grass isn’t useful, because grass is not loaded for the people in the distance/ hide in pine trees instead
  • don’t go in rocks/stones, you will get stuck and/or catapulted away = death
  • books can be read when you put them in your hotbar and then pressing the number of the slot they are in
  • eating rotten stuff makes you sick, eat charcoal tabs after that or make sure you are energized and hydrated, you will start losing blood, but eventually you will get healthy again
  • if your character has broken legs and you used morphine, but it’s still moaning then eat painkillers
  • best attachments for the m4 are the magpull parts (MP)/ m4 without a handguard is extremely inaccurate
  • silencers don’t work yet
