The Glock is a handgun developed by Glock Ges.m.b.H, also known as GLOCK. The full-size 9mm Glock 17 (G17) is featured in DayZ, and is a relatively common military sidearm. This particular model features an olive drab frame and flashlight. By default, the flashlight is activated with 'L' on the keyboard.
Chambered in 9mm, the Glock 17 has very low power. At only ~889 blood per hit, it can take almost an entire magazine to kill a player, depending on their health. It also usually takes 4 or 5 hits to kill a zombie. Thus, the G17 is most effective when used for headshots. Though it has low power, the Glock does have a fairly high magazine capacity.
Ammunition for the G17 is fairly common, and it can accept several varieties of magazines. It is able to use G17 magazines (17), M9 magazines (15), and M9 SD magazines (15). Note that it CANNOT use PDW or MP5 mags.
As a pistol, the Glock 17 is fairly easy to use indoors. Its flashlight also makes it useful for low-light environments, but has the potential to reveal the operator's position to other players. Zombies will not react to the light, however.
Its front sight post is fairly large, making it rather difficult to use at longer ranges. The weapon isn't very good for killing players, but is a good, quiet backup weapon for taking on zombies. With its low recoil, the player can make fast followup shots fairly easily. It is unlikely that zombies will react to the gun being fired, unless they are relatively close. The audible range for players is similar to that of the Makarov PM.
