    1.03 update info - coming soon!

    There is a possibility that these PC features could show progress on them working on fully custom controls [Added: Separated hold breath and walk inputs (both 'CTRL' by default)  Added: Erect, crouch and prone inputs (no binds by default) Added: Separated erect, crouch and prone inputs] I think if they are able to now have no bindings for inputs by default and are able to separate inputs then this means that they have made some clear work forward on letting you decide what input is binded to what key you want - now this is probably much easier for PC/M&K and i’m sure it will be a little more difficult to do this for the Xbox controller inputs, but it looks like it should come in the future, especially since the XB has the feature to remap controller buttons in its native settings already, it’s just a matter of figuring out the whole config of the XB dev system and getting the bindings right in the game code.

    Assault vest buttpack

    in the barracks - as the vest and buttpack are both categorized as “military” loot, you will only find them in the military type buildings - the hunting lodges will only spawn hunting type loot like the hunting backpack, hunter clothes, bear traps, PU/PSO/Hunting Scopes, Compasses/Binoculara, The Great Helm, and various seeds. I would make a 3 point route back and forth from the hunting camp, to Troitskoe mil base, then west to the single barrack at Kamensk factory and then all the way back and forth over and over, giving a little time (say 30 mins to an hour) for loot to respawn at each location - make the trip once, log out, wait, log back in and backtrack all the way to the campgrounds, log out again, wait, and repeat. You could even go back down to the guard shack on the eastern edge of Severograd if you don’t want to log out and it should take enough time for everything to maybe pop back up.

    Stash help

    I’m not 100% sure about barrels - but I’ve buried drybag backpacks in the dirt before, I was collecting car parts to build a nearby ADA and buried them behind a house in the dirt halfway between the car and a garage close by. When I buried the bags it had a small plot of soil that was a different color and broken up similar to a garden plot. It was very easy to come back and find when I knew what to look for, and you would only get the prompt to “dig up drybag” if you had a shovel equipped and looked at it - otherwise it wouldn’t show and unless you knew what to look for you’d probably pass right by it. I’m sure it may be the same for all other buried items.

    Assault vest buttpack

    Found both the vest and buttpack at various tent sites and barracks, including the Troitskoe hunting camp just north of Severograd rock quarry - it’s all up to the RNG gods.

    Leaving Backpacks on ground

    Persistence In DayZ, all items will eventually despawn after a predetermined amount of time. That length of time varies depending upon the type of item but does not apply to anything carried within a player's inventory.

    Remove rounds from a gun

    wierd thing i did the other day by accident - you load a round into the chamber of the bk-18, single shot, no mag, 1+0 right? hit Y again without shooting, you’ll unload the single round, it will go back into your inventory in a new stack, and you’ll load another round in. you can do this to infinity in an endless loop. i knew i already had it loaded and when i hit the button and watched it reload i was like...wtf there’s no way because i hadn’t fired any shots yet at all...and i thought it was some glitch where i was losing my ammo, i knew i had 6 rounds total. and it showed one in the gun, 4 in a stack and a single new round stack at the end of my inventory. wierd but interesting, i think it’s the only gun you can do it with, although there’s no actual way to get the gun empty.

    The easiest/depressing loot route

    yeah, the OPs route was definitely the LONGEST, most dangerous (going all the way down the east coast from Solnichniy factory to Kamy? you’re sure to die. that’s pvp hotzone #1) and most horrible route for loot I can think of. Troitskoe Mil Base, Pass Oreshka, Turovo, the VMC, Green Mountain - all better to get loot and easier to traverse inland to than going all the way around the coast to the literal end of the map. Heading West anywhere inland from the east coast will get you some easy gear and weapons especially hitting up the couple of hunting lodge camps hidden between some cities very fast and very easy.

    The easiest/depressing loot route

    this is literally the worst route ever.

    No one is saying it’s guaranteed and 100% that roosters are a sign that players are nearby, but it is a more often than not high probability that whenever you do hear a rooster, there’s a good chance something is nearby - i’ve either spawned in to servers and been in the same place where there’s nobody and no rooster, and logged out and logged right back in and haven’t moved and immediately heard a rooster, and most of the time a while later you’ll find something in that general direction, either a player or zombie group, which high concentration of zombies are also a good indication of activity. sometimes it’s a player moving around, or a gun shot, or a zombie nearby, that agitates the rooster into crowing - but something has to make the rooster caw, if they aren’t agitated by movement or sound, they stay quiet like chickens. I’ve heard roosters and gone and found just zombies in close proximity shuffling close by, and no players, but it’s usually SOMETHING nearby that makes the rooster act. So we don’t know the what part of it is, but we do know that usually, if you do hear a rooster and go investigate, you’ll have a good chance of finding something nearby. It’s not 100% fact, but for most people, it usually is reliable.

    Car Tire Repair?

    Lmao I actually did try to use it as a last ditch effort thinking the same thing! I was like, well hell it repairs clothes, backpacks, guns, magazines, why the fuck not a tire too?! Sadly it doesn’t work either :c

    Car Tire Repair?

    Just seeing if anyone can confirm or deny - the Tire Repair Kit doesn’t work in the xbox version as of now? I found a car, it’s almost complete, just need a spark plug and two more tires. One of the tires already on it is ‘badly damaged’ and I tried everything to get the TRK to work, but it wouldn’t no matter what I tried. I even went as far as looking at the description of the kit: “A plastic case, containing all the tools needed for fixing a car tire. Tire iron not included.” So I went on a damn hunt for a tire iron, brought it back, thinking maybe I had to combine the tire iron and the kit or something. Nope. Any info?

    Lack of HC players

    i’ve pretty much started trying to play on the US HC servers exclusively. They’re not as full usually as some servers but I like the fact that everyone is put on the same playing field equally with no 3rd person peeking over walls or around corners, and you don’t get the advantage of the full 360° behind camera so it makes playing a bit more dangerous. The few encounters i’ve had on the HC servers I’ve noticed that other players are a bit more cautious and have had ZERO attempts at KOS, people are more willing to talk and be friendly. last night/this morning I had literally spawned in Stary Sobor in a low pop with only about 5 people on the server, walked out of my house and immediately saw another player right down the road. we both had some decent military gear, we waved and he began to backpedal and move back down the road. I got scared for a bit as he kind of obscured behind a bush and tree and wasn’t sure if he was going to line up to shoot, a moment later his buddy comes from around the side of a building. Holy crap my heart was racing, was I about to get gunned down? What were the chances of being in a server of only 5 or 6 and immediately being in the presence of two other players in the whole map!? They ended up approaching, we talked for a while in the street, they were building a base gathering supplies and needing nails and a hammer, I was attempting to rebuild a car and looking for parts. I traded them a M4 with a full mag for a car battery, we exchanged names in case we ended up running across each other again. Everyone lived. Good shit.

    Muzzle flashes staying after shooting.

    ImpulZ 1353 Posted January 24 14/01/2019 Fixed: Possible fix for muzzle flash light sources never disappearing in some cases So it was “fixed” in the latest patch notes but it actually wasn’t fixed. Thanks!
