Haven't played much since the most recent updates but I can offer some quick advice.
1: You will die. Get over it.
2: Have friends to play with or you will die a lot more.
3: Survival means killing people before they kill you.
4: The only people who play at night are those with NV Gs
and those looking for NV Gs
heaven is having a small grouping of tents, a car and the equipment to fix it and hunt animals in the middle of nowhere.
My two DayZ
buddies have drifted off into other games so I haven't played much recently. I've got a few stories to share that I'll be editing in after I'm done doing this.
I was looting a building looking for supplies when I hear footsteps, I make my way to the stairs when I hear gunshots. As I turn to the small hallway with the stairs a guy is there and pops me once or twice, I go down. He takes point on the second floor while his buddy at the top of the stairway starts taking shots at the zeds pouring into the building.
Now something you need to know is that getting shot isn't instant game over all the time. Sometimes you can go into shock where you've got a certain amount of time down before you can start moving/controlling your character again. These guys are clearly new because they don't check to make sure I'm dead, instead focusing on the zombies. My timer runs out and I regain consciousness. I tag my assailant four/five times with my rifle and crawl over to the stairs and tag his partner once or twice before he shoots me dead. With any luck I wounded him enough that he fell unconscious soon after and was eaten by zombies.
The moral being don't shoot people in towns and attract the zombie horde. Alternatively shoot people dead
then deal with the zombie horde.
