Handcuffs are a piece of equipment in DayZ Standalone.

Handcuffs, once used by Chernarus law enforcement before the zombie outbreak, can now be found in abandoned jails and police stations.

They are used to restrict an individuals ability to resist or use objects (by restraining their wrists.) A key is required to unlock the handcuffs once used.

Once an individual's hands have been restrained, he/she can struggle to try and get out of them. The more durability the handcuffs have, the longer it will take to struggle out of them.

[edit] Keys

To unlock a set of handcuffs, you must use a set of Handcuff Keys.

[edit] How to struggle out

Repeatedly pressing A and D will cause the player to struggle. This is noticeable and is not advised if the captor is watching. Time taken to break free is based on Handcuff's condition.

[edit] Are there other ways to get out?

A hacksaw may be used to break free. If a hacksaw is placed on the hotbar, the player may switch to it and use it to break the handcuffs.

[edit] What you can do while cuffed

Handcuffed players have the ability to change stance, and move at a decreased speed. Things in the hotbar can be placed into the hands, but the inventory is not available.

[edit] Can handcuffs be used for good purposes?

Players can use handcuffs to organise other people's inventories in certain circumstances.
