Chernogorsk (pronunciation), or "Cherno" for short, is a large industrialized city located on the southern coast of Chernarus, between Balota and Elektrozavodsk. Chernogorsk was a regional administrative center that provided infrastructure and services to many of the surrounding communities.

History[edit | edit source]

Originally a small fisherman's village of Chyornaya Bay, the city became heavily industrialized by the investments of the Chernarussian Republic, which began in the 50's of the previous century.[1] The heavy industrialization is reflected in the fast-engineered infrastructure and generic apartment block style housing developments, which expanded beyond Chernogorsk proper into several adjoining suburb areas (Chapaevsk, Dubky, and Novoselky).

Chernogorsk has always been a harbor town. Once connected to northern trade routes by means of coastal railroad, it became a reliable transport hub for raw materials flow to Elektrozavodsk and other industrial centers that country's infrastructure previously couldn't support.[2]

The city has a giant factory complex adjoining the city center, a remarkable City Hall constructed 1955, and a relic of a famous hotel built on victory square.[3] It has two Hospitals, a Police Station and Fire Station, and several places of worship in its vicinity.

Buildings of Interest[edit | edit source]

After the Outbreak[edit | edit source]

Since the outbreak, the city populace has succumbed to the virus and its apartment buildings and abandoned factories are now infested with Zombies. The city's large size and abundance of loot make it a target for scavengers. It is one of the most populated places on the map and, as such, is a risky place for newly spawned players. Snipers will often hide on rooftops or on the hills north of the city and attack unwitting players due to the high traffic through the area.

Bandits[edit | edit source]

Bandits have always been in high numbers in Chernogorsk due to its close proximity to the Balota Airstrip, but with most of that particular airfield becoming de-militarized as of 0.49, it has lost some of its appeal. Chernogorsk has developed a reputation and as such people avoid it.

This city has seen most of its conflict migrate east to the nearby city of Elektrozavodsk. This is mostly due to Chernogorsk having fewer loot spawns to warrant the risk as well as Elektrozavodsk having far fewer high sniping points. Sniping is what made Chernogorsk notorious, and it has four major sniping points. One from the construction site, one from the fire station, and another from the tall silo building in north most section of the city with blue silos on the top.

The most dangerous places are:

  • Police Station
  • Supermarkets
  • Water Fountains
  • Fire Stations
  • Snipers on the tower silos
  • Open areas

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The name "Chernogorsk" derives from "Black Hill" in Russian. In real life there is a town with same name in the Republic of Khakassia, Russia. Population: 72,117.
  • Chernogorsk used to be the largest city in Chernarus in the Mod, however, in Dayz SA that title now belongs to Novodmitrovsk.
  • ^ The history section in part is based on the fictional history of Chernarus, that has been the setting for both ArmA II and DayZ Mod. Based on the assumption that DayZ takes place in a branching timeline after the Events of Arma2.
