A day of survival in a virtual world

some of you may want to know what i have been up well short answer is playing a whole lot of DayZ. what is DayZ? glad you asked!

A 225 km2 open world post-soviet state and one of the areas hit by a new and presently unknown infection which has wiped out most of the world’s population. You are one of the few who have survived and now you must search this new wasteland in order to fight for your life against what is left of the indigenous population, now infected with the disease.

Go Solo, team up with friends or take on the world as you choose your path in this brutal and chilling landscape using whatever means you stumble upon to survive.

THIS IS DAYZ! This is my story.

I had started off on the southern cost near the Balota Airfield. this area is a prime location for some medium yield loot spawns including military gear. It is also a very dangerous spot to be with no weapons or comrades. bandits like to camp for newly spawned survivors. However I have one advantage it is night time and having been playing this game for some time now I have found that the darkness is your best friend. i make my way slowly to the airfield. Avoiding zombies like a boss. i get to the air tower and low and behold a ghillie suit! no weapons though. ok now to the hangers. as i was going through the hangers i was not finding anything of use. in the last hanger i find a coyote pack (24 slots) score! still no weapons though. i saunter out across the airfield towards the medical tents and military outpost. here i find some morphine and blood bags. last deer stand i find a weapon a m14 with a red dot and a few magazines .

i get word that a comrade is in Cherno, one of the large coastal cites, not an ideal place to be but close to where I am at. dawn is fast approaching and i ask my comrade to throw a flare so i can get a general location. he is hesitant but decides to throw it and then run in the opposite direction as i approach Cherno i see his flare.

Flare spotted

I move in but not towards the flare but towards the fire-station. I meet up with my comrade and we begin our looting adventure first up the markets we need food and drink after that its off to find a vehicle and get away from the coast we need to head north. Daybreak, we find a vehicle but need to find parts and fuel we begin to scout and search the areas for industrial loot spawns.


Found a possible high yield spot.

we were able to find some parts but not all the parts needed. we move on. still unable to repair our vehicle fully we decide to meet up with our other comrades and see if they had any better luck. as we are traveling i spot smoke! know there is smoke grenades in game i was caught off guard, i thought maybe other players were around. i go prone to hide myself and whip out the binoculars i spot a helo crash.

Crash Site

knowing that rare item spawn near these we needed to raid it and reap our rewards. we walked away with a new gun and ammo and some medical supplies. we continued to meet up with our other comrades. After finally meeting up with everyone we decided to stake out some areas for a campsite and a place to hide our vehicles. that is where we left off.
