DayZ Update Adds New Location And Weapon, Full Patch Notes Revealed

Developer Bohemia Interactive has released a brand-new update for its survival game DayZ that addresses some bugs, adds a new weapon and ammunition, and more. We’ve compiled the full patch notes below.

The headlining feature of DayZ’s 1.07 update is the inclusion of amusement parks, new locations within the game world replete with shooting ranges for target practice and structures to seek shelter from the zombie horde. If you would rather go on the offensive, though, Bohemia Interactive has added the new Repeater Carbine to help you take the scalps off your enemies. There are also two new ammunition types added in the 1.07 update: the Repeater Carbine’s .357 rounds and 12ga Rubber Slugs that can be used with any shotgun.

DayZ’s newest patch also addresses a number of bugs within the game, such as game and server crashes, problems around item duplication exploits, inaccessible items, unregistered bullet discharge, and more.

You can check out the full patch notes below, along with a teaser trailer for DayZ’s 1.07 update.
