Each one is important enough to remember.
Whoever has played DayZ knows how hard it is. You have to worry about food, water, other players, and zeds on top of everything else. At first, it can seem like you’ll never be able to get past that tough first obstacle. Unless, of course, you have mods that make the game easier.
Since scavenging is so important to this game, a new player might forget that there are a lot of crafting recipes that can help them become a wasteland warrior faster. If you don’t want to ease into the game with mods, you should learn how to make a few key items that will make a difference in the post-apocalyptic world.
It may seem simple, but just because it’s simple doesn’t mean it’s not important. Rags are one of the most important things in the game, and making them is the only way to stay alive. You only need a knife and an item of clothing you’re not wearing. Drag the knife onto the clothes in your inventory, click “Tear into Rags” when the option appears, and you’re done! You’ve got rags.
Rags can be used like bandages to fix wounds, but they won’t help with broken bones like a splint. Rags can also be used to make torches, ropes, campfires, and so much more. Make rags if you want to stay alive for a long time.
Nailed Baseball Bat
The Nailed Baseball Bat is a great choice if you want a solid weapon and to feel like Neegan from The Walking Dead. To make this great PVP weapon, you’ll need to find about 12 nails and a baseball bat and then put them together.
This is a great weapon because it can make other players bleed. This makes it a good choice for both attacking Zeds and protecting yourself (or hunting other players, if that’s your goal). Since it’s so easy to make, it’s a great weapon to use until you find a stronger bleed weapon.
Plate Carrier Variations
Carrying capacity is one of the things that makes your time in Dayz, or “your Dayz in Dayz,” harder. Everyone has been in a situation where they had to leave valuable items behind while scavenging because they didn’t have enough room. So, wouldn’t it be nice to have more space for storage that also protects you from damage? Well, that’s exactly what you’ll get when you max out a Plate Carrier with a Holster and Pouches.
Even though the risk is pretty high (since some players like to camp out in military zones to rob looters), the benefits can’t be denied. It’s worth it to have 24 more slots, better protection for your guns, and a slot for a holster. It will keep you alive longer for sure.
Ropes are a versatile item that can be used to build things, store things, and make fishing rods. They can also be used to stop players from killing each other instead of killing them. This way, you can save on bullets and still give them everything they’ve got. This is especially helpful since there will always be people in DayZ who want you dead.
Two stacks of six rags can be used to make ropes, which makes them cheap for what they are worth. When used as restraints, they are cheap because they are easy to cut, but you are likely to be long gone by the time your victim is free.
Burlap Courier Bags and Backpacks
If you want a cheap way to store things, burlap bags are the way to go. Even though there are better backpacks, these are good options for starting out or traveling light. They are small, light, and quiet.
With ropes and a burlap sack, you can make a burlap courier bag. With three sticks and a burlap courier bag, you can make a burlap backpack, which has 30 inventory slots. For the price, you have to have this if you want to stay alive.
To stay alive, you need to be able to see and eat. This is why a fireplace is a great thing to have at any level of development. A campfire keeps the night from coming when the sun goes down. When you need fresh food, you can cook meat and other foods over a campfire until they are safe to eat.
There are many ways to make a campfire, but the simplest is to use a piece of cloth and a short stick. In place of the rag, you can also use paper, light bark, oak bark, or bandages. Remember to use a long, sharp stick when cooking in a fireplace that hasn’t been upgraded.
Even though the stone knife is very simple, that doesn’t mean it isn’t useful. It can be used in place of any common knife in crafting recipes and can cut bark and rope when needed. This is the best thing to have in an emergency, since other knives are more useful.
It only takes two small stones to make, which have become easier to find without tools in recent updates. It’s a good recipe to remember in a pinch, and if used right, it could save your life and the lives of your friends.
If you don’t have a ranged weapon, it’s unlikely that you’ll be able to hunt bigger animals. The snare trap is a great way to catch food. If you have some metal wire and a stick, you have a good way to get food (given you have bait to back it up with).
This trap will mostly catch rabbits, so don’t expect to catch any big game any time soon. No matter what, this is a good thing to make if you don’t have enough bullets or are too close to zeds to use a gun.
The hand drill is one of the most important tools in DayZ for keeping fires going. So it is one of the most important things to have. Since you need fires to cook food and make low-level light. The hand drill should be one of the first recipes you learn. It can also be used to light torches, which are helpful for getting around at night.
You only need a stick and a piece of bark to make a hand drill. In Dayz, lighting a fire is more realistic than in Minecraft, where torches and campfires are used. If the hand drill fails to light a fire, it breaks, so be sure to have plenty of resources on hand to make a replacement quickly. After all, who wants a fireplace that isn’t lit?
Simple Fishing Rod
Fishing is one of the cheapest ways to get food, so it’s a great way to stay alive early in Slope Game when you’re tired of scavenging. A simple fishing rod can be made with just a piece of rope and a long piece of wood. It does take up more space, though, so you should get a better fishing rod as soon as you can.
Remember that you need bait, which you can make with earthworms and hooks, in order to catch fish with this tool. Once you find a better rod, you can also use a knife to break this one apart and use the pieces for something else.
