I am Rick Grimes' missing hand
DayZ -DayZero Log:

Yesterday I started playing DayZero which is basically DayZ but with more guns, more buildings etc… I’m trying to play as a good guy and not kill everyone on site. 

So I’m running out of a firestation with some decent gear and this dude in a bandit skin with 10 zombies chasing him yells “Hey man! Can you heal me? Do you have a blood bag?” 

So Again, I’m trying to be nice. I say “Sure! Meet me in the church” He follows me in. I tell him to not point his shotgun at me while I heal. 

I heal him he says thank you and turns and shoots me in the head…

Ghillie suit, assault rifle (2 clips) with grenade launcher, 1 claymore mine, pistol with 9 clips, hunting knife, hatchet, and a map in DayZ… First thought “I AM THE ONE WHO KNOCKS!”

DayZ Log 2: Into the wild

So last time I was heading north into the woods to get away from the crowded towns and shores of death. Well I can tell you already the forest is your friend!

After passing a few towns and avoiding any fights I find my first ever TREE STAND! They are known to have some pretty valuable drops. Tree Stand #1 had nothing at all… But then I found a second and it had some ammo but not for any guns I was carrying. Still made me feel good to finally find a few after hearing so much about them. 

From the Tree Stand I could see what looked like a large Radio Tower. I made my way slowly towards it looking left and right for any zombies or other players. I’ve seen players use this as a base before. 

Approaching the area I immediately see another player. But she’s facing down to the ground. I aim my rifle for a head shot and fire. Nothing… another shot… nothing. There’s blood but she wont drop. I shoot again at the legs nothing… At this point I assume the character is frozen or something. I walk up and I’m able to take items off the body. 

I manage to get a blood pack, food, drink, map, morphine, and best of all an assault rifle with an ACOG Scope!. I get the hell out of there as fast as I can before her friends show up!

As I head down the woods I see a large pig/boar. I know have everything to cook food. Hatchet for wood, matches to start fire and a hunting knife to gut the animal. I shoot a few pistol rounds to take the beast down and gut the steaks off it. 

One little piggy gives you lots of meat!

I harvest some wood and start up a fire. I make sure I’m far enough away and hidden behind some hills so the smoke doesn’t get anyone’s attention. I make sure to cook the meat quick and then put the fire out. Its pretty easy once you have everything you need. 

Now with food and drink and plenty of ammo I make my way further north. My goal is to reach the farthest point and then head east to shore. Then I’ll be able to pin point my location better. I’ll be able to use my Map after that. Still no compass =(

I see a pretty rainbow along the way. 

As I get closer to the northern most part I see a large yellow truck. I see cars all the time but they’re broken down. This truck appears in GREAT condition. As I slowly get closer I see TWO other trucks AND an ATV. I hop in the large truck and begin ramming it into the two smaller trucks. I’m not planning on using them. They attract too much attention. So I need to use my Scorched Earth policy and leave nothing of use behind. This is definitely someone’s stash. I manage to cripple the two white trucks and the large yellow was pretty banged up and low on fuel. 

I walk over to the ATV and discover that there’s loot in it! I find a ghillie suit, another assault rifle with sniper scope, antibiotics, a tent, more food and drink, another morphine injection. THIS was the mother load. Someone’s not going to be happy when they come home later.  

I use the ATV for a while but it’s too loud for my taste to I bail and leave it hidden.

Most games train you to explore every building. Kill everything you see. DayZ teaches you to avoid everything trust no one. I have to fight my curiosity every time I see a town or building. If I don’t need anything the risk isn’t worth it. I only have one life after all. 

I continue my journey to the coast. Hoping to avoid any contact. At this point I have everything I need live. There’s no reason to go near any towns. people or zombies. I will live off the land as long as I can. 

DayZ Log 11/1/12

DayZ log:

Played a little last night. Logged on to a new game. Right away I could see the town Electro. You can tell by the large cranes. I knew that was a good place for noobs seeing how it has lots of buildings with food, medical supplies, weapons etc…

I start making my way down the beach to Electro and of course a zombie sees me from sooo far away. It was total BS but I still had to evade him. I jump in the water until he swims after me. (Zombies arent great at swimming). Once he’s out in the water I swim around him and get back on the shore and run as fast as I can. 

I ditch him after a bit and make my way into a small house. Luckily I find an empty canteen (Which you can fill) and a CROWBAR!!! That’s the fastest I’ve ever found a weapon ever. However there’s some glitch when I equip it and my guy is hunched over and can’t swing it. Of course at the moment a zombie walks into the house and starts beating the shit out of me. Im bleeding all over the place trying to unequip this crowbar but my guy is still hunched over. I manage to run out of the house and bandage myself. However at this point my health is so low that I pass out. 

I figure this is it. I’m done. But my guy wakes up with super low health. I get up to run and I pass out again. I watch the timer run down assuming that it was a glitch and I must be dead now. But my guys wakes up again. This time, having so little health, I have no fear of death. I sprint straight for the largest building pulling a train of about 5-6 zombies. I see a space under a fence and I dive and crawl under it. I then run to a ladder as fast as I can and climb to the top of the building and lay down. I realize nobody is following me so I must have lost them. 

The crowbar still won’t equip or swing so I log off and then back on. NOW it works! Now Im ready. But Im dangerously low on health. 

Next step is to find the hospital so I can get some blood packs and get a blood transfusion. 

DayZ Log:

Fighting a zombie and it broke my leg. I learned that you can break bones and when that happens you cant walk, only crawl. I managed to crawl all the way to a building and saw some items. Luckily morphine was in the bag and apparently that heals broken bones. 

Joined up with another player who showed be around one of the main cities and I found a ton of guns. However, not really understanding the inventory, I repeatedly tried to place my guns in my bag. When you dont have enough space, rather than tell you, it just makes the guns disappear. So I lost a shotgun, MP5 and a pistol in about 5 min. 

Now all I have is my hatchet but luckily it wont run out of ammo.
