“An agricultural tool with a long handle and long, thick, widely separated pointed tines (also called prongs) used to lift and pitch (throw) loose material, such as hay, straw or leaves. Also capable of stabbing through soft enough objects. — In-game description
The Pitchfork is a type of melee weapon in DayZ Standalone.
This weapon seems to have a unique melee attack where it does a two-part animation. First a swipe down, followed by a spearing motion. It takes two hits to the body or one headshot to kill a zombie.
