  • 75. Eating the fat from a human body will not give you Kuru (a brain disease)

DayZ Tips (Expert Tips: 76-100)

Finally, our expert DayZ tips and tricks are for the fully adept players who want to significantly expand their existing range of skills

  • 76. Tying yourself up with duct tape and breaking free will give you a full roll of duct tape
  • 77. Spamming the crouch button whilst reloading a magazine is quicker
  • 78. Taking your barrel attachment off while aiming through a window/wall will stop your gun from pointing upwards
  • 79. Falling against a wall allows you to see through it
  • 80. Radios that are on the ground can still be spoken through
  • 81. Testing your blood with a blood test kit displays your blood type above your HUD (see the chart above for blood type info)
  • 82. You can saw the barrel off a Mosin or BK rifle to reduce its size. However, this significantly increases recoil and wear rate
  • 83. Cut open the body of a dead player inside a car in order to get the loot

  • 89. Raising your hands just as you pick up a heavy item will put you in a glitched state which is quicker than walking
  • 90. Cut down a tree, bury a container full of items in the tree’s location and after the server resets your items will be well hidden
  • 91. Bury a stash in a graveyard, train track or under a radio tower, as there will be no pile showing where the stash is
  • 92. The tank in Chernarus allows you to clip inside it, making you invisible
  • 93. Use a long stick as storage for vegetables, fruits and meats
  • 94. It’s possible to load both slugs and buckshot rounds into the same shotgun
  • 95. Similarly, you can load both tracer and non-tracer rounds into the same gun
  • 96. Gunshots can be heard from up to 3.5km away
  • 97. Put a battery of a headtorch into your Hotbar, spam it to make the headtorch flicker
  • 98. Most surfaces in DayZ are penetrable with bullets

Since the latest updates, it is difficult to find an Ashwood Stick by looting. But, it can be created by chopping down an Ashwood Tree. In order to complete this task, you must first have a Fireman's or Splitting Axe. They can often be found inside industrial buildings, barns, garages, Firehouses, storage units, and other shed like structures.

Ashwood Tree

The Ashwood Tree is a small or medium size tree with bushy leaves. It has a short grey trunk, that has a greenish tint that is noticeable when looking at it up close. Many long branches expand from the truck at a low level, causing the leaves of the tree to create a canape that covers most of the branches and trunk.

It can be found inside several towns, and is common in the areas between towns and heavily wooded areas. It has been easier for me to find this tree on the central west cost, between several small towns. I have also found these on the east cost, between the beach and the heavily wooded area to the west.

Rope is a type of tool used for crafting in DayZ. Rope can be used, along with other materials, to create an improvised courier bag or an improvised backpack.

If you recently started playing Mini DayZ, you may be wondering how to craft items. Much like its PC-based big brother, Mini DayZ features a handy crafting system which allows you to combine specific items in order to create new items that can aid you in your survival efforts.

In this guide, we’ll show you how to craft items in Mini DayZ and also list some of the various crafting recipes that players have already discovered.

Mini DayZ - Drag and Drop Crafting Items

Crafting items in Mini DayZ functions in virtually the same way as it does in DayZ proper. Once you have all the items you need, simply drag and drop each item on top of the other to initiate the crafting process.

Of course, knowing which specific items to drop on each other does require a little trial and error as the actual item combinations aren’t listed anywhere. To help get you started, we’ve listed all of the currently known crafting recipes in Mini DayZ below.

Mini DayZ - Crafting Recipes

If you’d rather not take the time to figure out Mini DayZ’s crafting recipes on your own, we’ve gathered all of the recipes that players have already discovered below. Again, once you have the requisite crafting materials, all you need to do to craft the item in question is to drag and drop the materials onto each other in your inventory.

  • Bow: Ashwood Stick, Piece of Rope.
  • Arrows: Wooden Sticks, Knife.
  • Improvised Storage Bag: Burlap Sack, Piece of Rope.
  • Improvised Backpack: Improvised Storage Bag, Wooden Sticks (x3).
  • Fireplace: Wood Pile, Rags (Wooden Sticks or Paper can be used in place of Rags as well).

Along with the above crafting recipes, Duct Tape can be used with most items to repair their durability by 15 percent. A Sewing Kit can be used to repair most gear pieces by 50 percent, and a Cleaning Kit can repair any firearm by 25 percent.

There you have it, the basics to crafting items in Mini DayZ. Have you discovered any interesting crafting recipes? Let us know in the comments below!

By reading through this guide, you should now know how to craft items in Mini DayZ.

Certainly happened to you, that you could not find any gun after a long searching. You found it maybe, but you hadn’t any ammo for it. Or you’re just a fan of stealth moving or tradicional guns. In that case, the bow is exactly what you need. It’s quiet, it can kill by just one shot and make it isn’t hard.

BOW | List of important things
  • Axe
  • Ashwood Stick
  • Rope / Pile of Guts

We need an ashwood stick, which you can get by chop down the Ashwood tree. These trees are specific. They can be small and ramifying a bit above the ground or they are big with a long bald stem and bushy treetop. Combine the stick with rope or with pile of guts and make the bow (“Improvised Ashwood Short Bow”). All we need now is some munition – arrows.

ARROWS | List of important things
  • Axe
  • Wooden Stick
  • Knife
  • Chicken feather
STEP 1 | Getting sticks

At first, you will need some wooden stick. You take some axe, machete or another sharp weapon and chop down some bush or split some log (Firewood). Also you can find some stick on the ground in forrest (look on the ground and there will be choice “search for kindling”).

STEP 2 | Treatment and completion

Modify stick to “sharpened stick” by knife. Then just combine Sharpened Stick with Chicken Leather. You can find them in henhouse or from hens, which you have to kill first.

BONE ARROW | List of important things
STEP 1 | Crafting

Now you can upgrade your arrows. You need to kill some animal and take its bones. Then you just combine it with your arrow. You get Bone Arrow. You need only one bone for one arrow.

Rope is a type of equipment in DayZ Standalone. It can be used to craft Backpacks, an Improvised Fishing Rod, or an Improvised Ashwood Short Bow.

In addition to its use in crafting, rope can also be used to restrict an individual's ability to resist or use objects (by restraining their wrists like Handcuffs). The rope can be cut by a knife to free the person who is restrained.

Rope itself can be crafted (referred to as Improvised Rope in these cases) by combining two stacks of six Rags each (see below).
