If you have long wanted the opportunity in the battles of the successful zombie shooter DayZ, try new strategies to be able to, then you can do that with the update 1.12 now.
New combat tactics in DayZ
The extensive update brings some Changes to weapons, ammunition and protective equipment with himself. In addition, other weapons are being added. In addition, the zombies act differently, which affects the close combat. They are harder to kill and more dangerous. Instead, they now react a little slower to noises, which makes it easier for you to avoid fights.
This allows you new strategies: if you see some of the infected, for example, then you can consider whether you would rather sneak past them. This makes stealth much more important. Additionally, with the new update, it makes more sense to run away from the zombies. Because at some point they lose interest and turn back. In addition, they no longer attack unconscious players.
So it is possible in version 1.12 of DayZ that you Lures away zombies, for example to disperse groups and then attack the enemies one at a time. This makes sense, especially in a team. One player lures away some of the infected while the others take out the rest. So you no longer have to fight the whole group at once.

Other new features of the update
In terms of weapons, the balancing has been adjusted so that similar weapons now differed more clearly from one another, as well as advantages and disadvantages. Smaller weapons, for example, do less damage, but can now hardly be heard from a distance.
In addition, the protective equipment helps to cheat death. Because the chance of being thrown to the ground by a direct hit and not dying right away is significantly higher since update 1.12.
Other new features of the update include:
- Land mines no longer instantly kill players with full health
- You can now grow your own food in a greenhouse
That’s what players say about the new update
SundayNightSushi on Reddit noticed the higher level of difficulty right away:
“I played a bit of official hardcore today. I died four times in 30 minutes. It’s no longer a joke. Better fasten your seat belts because this game just got 100 times harder.”
sketch2347 on Reddit has another special request:
“These are really interesting changes. I just wish that shoe collecting would be toned down if you wanted to cover long distances.”
Zoot Zephyr on Reddit is surprised by the changes:
“You actually have to use stealth to take out zombies with one hit, and you have to fight them more skillfully than just pressing the attack button.”
