DayZ Gets Patched, New Weapons, Infection Tweaks, and More

Yesterday, the Arma 2 zombie mod, DayZ, was updated with a rather lengthy list of fixes and tweaks.

For starters, Zeds have a couple of new abilities like damaging vehicles and being able to pull you from open vehicles. They also now have a greater sense of awareness (they can hear you cutting down trees and can speak to each other within 80 meters). The infection system has also been tweaked. For example, blood bags can also give infections and you’ll need to be a little more careful with what you eat or how you eat certain items. Lastly, on top of the addition of a few new weapons, it sounds like scavenged weapons will will now come with a “limited amount of ammo.”

Check out the full change log below:

  • lrishjake

    This patch is awesome! God I love playing this game.. basically just built my PC to do that. And it was well worth it. FYI, to anyone who wants the same, I built my PC for around $400 total and can play BF3, DayZ, and other games on Ultra settings at very high frame rates.. you do not need to break the bank to get into PC gaming.

    Thank you to MP1st for writing this article, as I may not have played for a few days as the new DayZ Origins Mod has me hooked. But now with this new patch the original DayZ is playing MUCH BETTER!

    • 400 that sounds about like my price point. Wish I had the know how to do that.

    • yo anyways u can help me with that i need a gaming pc like can u tell us what u have like parts and were u got them thanks man

      • Gareth90

        you should check out jackfrags on youtube he does a pc build for a couple hundred of pound (uk) plays dayz and bf3 very well.
