Constructed using heavy-duty fabrics, this tactical vest can be adjusted at the waist and consists of a number of pouches designed to hold everything a soldier requires.

The Tactical Vest is a vest that used to be in DayZ Standalone. It is best used for close-quarters combat and city exploration, as it provides ample storage space as well as limited protection from melee attacks and small arms fire.

This vest has not been removed from the game, but it has been removed from the Loot tables almost since the Standalone’s release, making it an extremley rare item to obtain, only by those who got hold of the vest before it was removed.

  • This vest appears to have been removed from loot tables after clipping issues with female characters occurred, possibly because the model was ported directly from ArmA III.
  • There is a bug where upon the vest being in a ruined state, melee attacks from a Zombie will revert it to it’s Pristine form. It is unclear as to why this happens.
