DayZ Zombie Mod

Credits go to dayzmod.com forum user vforcengel

What is DayZ? DayZ is a zombie apocalypse mod for Bohemia Interactive Studio's ArmA II game, where the player will step foot on a fictional region of land called "Chernarus", which is plagued with the undead and sparse survivors. The region is open world, consisting of 225 km^2 (squared) of land to adventure in!

Features in this mod include the zombies that spawn, as well as new weapons and vehicles that join the ranks of the many other weaponry/transportation that are available for use. Weapons range from military weapons to personal pistols/rifles, and non conventional weapons such as crossbows. Vehicles that are available for use can be repaired and can even be scavenged for parts! Although, many of the vehicles will be missing parts, so your scavenging skills will be put to use.

Here is a fan made trailer for DayZ, credits go to user 00998tim:

The default ArmA II medical system is revamped for DayZ, as getting shot will cause bleeding and loss of blood until the wound gets bandaged. If the loss of blood becomes too great, the player will fall unconscious, fun huh? Getting shot in the leg won't help with your surviving skills, as you won't be able to walk after getting hit down there, unless you inject yourself with morphine and straggle away. To make injuries more realistic, pain is also a factor in this mod, as pain will cause the screen to shake until you take painkillers.

New objects have been added to the default game, and a lot of them were added, from small details to large details. Water canteens will be very useful as they were added with tons of other objects such as , food, junk, car parts, and many other objects.

Afraid that you'll lose data when a server crashes? Don't worry, as all statistics are saved on an external database, and will load once you log back in.

As you spawn by the shore of Chernarus, your best bet is to scavenge for supplies as soon as possible, and as once you have supplies, you're ready to survive as long as possible.  A vital part in DayZ is eating and drinking,  as wild animals can be killed and eaten, which will let you live longer and regain blood.

The requirements for DayZ is having ArmA II: Combined Operations, the DayZ files which can be downloaded from the link at the bottom of the post, and the balls to play! Here are the current statistics for the mod below:

Stats on 6/12/12

The average life expectancy for all players of the mod is only 31 minutes, up from around 27 minutes a couple of weeks ago when I checked.

Here is an infographic that you should read before getting the game, only outdated by a tad, but has a lot of information inside!

    stole my iPad and tested to see if it can survive a 30 foot
    drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken
