- — In-game description
Maps are items used to navigate between the different locations across Chernarus. There are a number of different maps, including quarter maps and half maps, and a complete map. Map pieces (quarters and halves) can be combined together to form a complete map.
These are commonly found in gas stations and in parked/destroyed cars. They can be accessed through the inventory or by setting a hotkey. Each map item use up one Inventory slot. Maps can be used to place custom map markers, which are shared between all other survivors in the channel.
- Quarter Maps
They are the most common loot spawn map item found in-game. Though small, these maps have a much higher maximum zoom than the map of all Chernarus.
- Half Maps
Can be found in game, or can crafted by combining two adjacent quarter maps e.g. North with South, East with West, but not West and North.
- Whole Map
A map of the entirety of Chernarus can be created by combining two opposite half maps (ie. North and South or East and West).
