Elektrozavodsk [Электрозаводск] (pronunciation), or "Elektro" for short, is a large city located on the southern coast of Chernarus and east of Chernogorsk. Many building types can be found here, and it is a hub of activity due to both its size and its role as a spawn location.
The name derives from "Electric/Industrial Factory" in Russian.
General[edit | edit source]
Well-known as a dangerous and gritty place, the city of Elektrozavodsk can be unforgiving. It is comprised mostly of multi-story buildings and complexes, resulting in short lines of sight and close quarters encounters. As a large city, it also tends to spawn equally large number of zombies. Extreme caution should be exercised at all times here, to say the least.
Everything a new survivor would need can be found here thanks to the wide variety and sheer number of buildings. Nearby is a Power Plant that serves most of Chernarus.
Threat Level[edit | edit source]
Elektrozavodsk is frequently the site of firefights in DayZ. Its variety of loot spawns, and its proximity to other spawn points such as Kamyshovo and Solnichniy have made it a priority target for new spawns to reach in an attempt to get gear. As a result, this has seen a large population of bandits inhabit the area. There are select areas within the city that are more dangerous than others. This is due to the layout of the city itself, where a majority of the priority loot spawns are clustered together. The Police Station, Hospital and School are all on the same block. There are also two Fire Stations in Elektrozavodsk and both are dangerous places. These locations are where most of the firefights break out. The other major threat is on 'Sniper Hill'. It is located directly east of the school, and provides sniping onto the Police Station, School, Hospital, Supermarket and north-most Fire Station.
Visitors should be cautious of two other locations. The hills north of Elektrozavodsk are a popular thoroughfare for people avoiding conflict. The Power Plant located just outside of the city on the east-bound highway is a popular staging point for larger groups of bandits.
The most dangerous places are:
- The Police Station
- Water Fountains
- Fire Stations
- Hospital and School
- Hillsides to the northeast of the city (high probability of snipers)
- Power Plant just outside Elektrozavodsk on the north-bound highway.
