Bohemia Interactive is happy to announce that Game Update 1.09 has arrived on all platforms (08/09/2020). It brings a lot of bug-fixes and also interesting new stuff. The long-awaited Revolver is making its return! This very cool looking gun is chambered with six rounds of the strong .357 ammo within an internal rotating cylinder. In addition to this, we’re also adding one more brand new gun to DayZ - the Deagle. This beast of a pistol is available in silver and rare gold variants, features a nine .357 round magazine and fits the re-introduced pistol scope, to engage targets over longer distances.
Developers have also been working on some balancing of the durability of individual firearms, mainly aimed at lowering the durability gap between chambered and magazine based weapons. With this, we’ve also increased the durability of suppressors and removed the ability to repair weapons with duct tape along with their attachments. Keep an eye out and hold on to those weapon repair kits!
A new structure for base builders has been added - the flagpole. It aims to make base management easier by continuously refreshing the lifetime values of items and structures around. Meaning that you will no longer need to run fence by fence to keep them alive once you build and activate a flagpole in your base. Just keep an eye on how low the flag is, because its position defines how many refresh cycles remain. There are 27 flag variants; we hope you find your personal favorite.
