Dayz Rules


This is DayZ: you start with little, struggle to get more and in an instant will lose everything.

It is a matter of time before you will die from natural or unnatural causes. Embrace the struggle, deal with what you have and not what you wish you had.

IMPORTANT: You are not entitled to any compensation if you loose your gear due to to a server/game crash/glitch. This also applies to vehicles and any gear inside of them.

The rules below can change anytime: keep up to date.
