Loot refers to items that can be found and used by the player in most enterable buildings in DayZ, buildings such as houses, hospitals and barns. Players can pick up and store loot in their inventory (Default: Tab), backpacks, chest holsters, special containers and in various pouched or pocketed clothing. Loot must be within reach of a player and within first-person view from the head in order to be picked up or interacted with.

Unlike the mod, loot no longer respawns when entering an area; it is now only spawned into the world once upon the start of a server's session and as a result of such there may be variable difficulty in finding items.

[edit] Loot Areas and Categories

Loot is broken up into 5 main categories in DayZ. These categories are explained below and listed from the most common to rarest or most difficult to find of spawn types.

Be aware that because the game is still in Alpha, some of the buildings do not spawn any loot, such as some of the smaller houses, and the small storage garage with boxes. Learn to recognize which ones that do.

[edit] Residential/Civilian

Civilian loot typically spawn in urban or town areas in which regular civilians would live in. It often has a good chance to spawn Food and chance to spawn low tier melee and projectile weapons, basic equipment can be found here (i.e. Basic navigational equipment such as map pieces and the compass).

Enterable civilian buildings are the most common type of buildings present in Chernarus. The following are a few examples:

[edit] Industrial

Industrial areas, buildings are commonly found in outlying areas of major cities, or as small compounds around Chernarus, they are primary locations to look for industrial work-related items such as splitting axes, hammers, and screwdrivers

Industrial loot may also be found in rooms or sections of civilian or residential buildings in which industry-related work is done such as a building's garage or tool shed.

[edit] Farms

Farm areas, like residential areas, can bear food, drink, and wood, but also have a slightly higher chance to have basic weapons and ammunition, these areas may also typically spawn industrial type loot. Examples of farm type buildings are:

[edit] General Military

There are few military locations in Chernarus. Military areas typically contain high-grade military equipment such as High-powered automatic weapons, attachments and ammunition, electronic equipment, as well as camouflaged and protective clothing.

Buildings and other entities which may have military-type items are:

There are several zones that are full of these kind of buildings and loot:

[edit] Medical

Medical buildings and tents are the most common places to find medical supplies. These are the only places which you may find vital life-saving tools and equipment, drugs and other health related items. Buildings of these type are:

NOTE: Small yellow houses often contain some First Aid Kits

Consumables are items in DayZ Standalone which disappear after use. These include food, water, medical supplies and tactical consumables. Many are used simply by entering the gear menu, right-clicking on the desired item, and selecting the 'use' option.

Using inappropriate tools to open certain goods may result in damage or spillage.

[edit] Food

There are various food types available in DayZ. These replenish the hunger meter and sometimes a player's thirst. Food intake is no longer a method of blood replenishment, however it's effects on the player by regenerating water or energy levels will help in regeneration.
