Deutsch English

DayZ Update 1.16 brings the coolest item ever – patch notes

When will update 1.16 be released? Back on, January 27 at 15:00 CET, DayZ Update 1.16 was released on the Experimental servers for PC and Xbox. Now three weeks later, on 15. February, the update is playable on the live servers for everyone.

New weapon with huge magazine

As you would expect from a good DayZ update, version 1.16 also brings a new weapon. This time you get the Bizon, a Russian submachine gun. On top of that, the developers have added a 64-round magazine. Fitting for a weapon with such a high rate of fire — at least in the real world. Whether the Bizon is as much of a Biezt in DayZ as it is in real life remains to be seen.


Alarm Clock

A seemingly inconspicuous item has also made it into patch 1.16. Now you can use an alarm clock to lure zombies away from you or to steer them in a certain direction.

Just imagine that you spot a player in an unfavorable position for you. If you throw the ringing alarm clock in his direction, you can drive him out: the zombies are sure to have an appetite! Besides, the alarm clock is responsible for another task: It tells the time — Yaha, no joke.
