View on Berezino from north

Berezino [Березино] (pronunciation) is a city located on the east coast of Chernarus, south of Svetlojarsk.


Due to its sprawled-out layout, Berezino is more time-consuming to loot than Chernogorsk or Elektrozavodsk, and is much less rewarding. There is generally significantly less loot in most buildings than in the other cities, because of the high player count in this area.

Don't forget to check the apartment houses across the road from the northern supermarket as well as the apartments near the very north of town on the west side of the lumber mill.

The first supermarket is directly east, across the street of the apartments. The hospital and the other supermarket are further south and uphill, towards the main part of town.

In the lumber mill, northeast of these other landmarks, you'll also find an office building with lots of residential loot, as well as several more industrial buildings.

There are three Deer Stands near Berezino; all of them are in open fields and not along a treeline, where Deer Stands are commonly found. The first is directly north of the hospital, in the field north of town. The second is directly east of the hospital, in the field between the main part of town and the highway on the coast. The third can be found on the field east of the hospitals, north of the farm Warehouses.

Threat Level[edit]

As of 0.49, with the return of spawn points on the south coast, the level of danger in traveling Berezino has been reduced. It is still at higher levels relative to other coastal locations, but is not the free-for-all it once was for some time. See below for additional tips on the town.


Bandits have always been in high numbers in Berezino due to its relative proximity to the Krasnostav Airstrip (NEAF). Prior to the re-introduction of coastal spawns in the South, and the neutering of military assets at that particular airfield, this was a dangerous combination and made Berezino one of the more volatile locations in Chernarus. Spawns around Berezino are less frequent now as of 0.49, and coupled with the change of the NEAF to a civilian airport, Berezino sees slightly less traffic.

Still, gunfire can often be heard when approaching or spawning into Berezino. With patch 0.47.124641 loot spawns in Berezino have been reduced significantly, this has forced players to look to other means of acquiring gear. This has seen large populations migrating Novodmitrovsk and Elektrozavodsk. Berezino has little in the way of high sniping points, so combat tends to stay street level.

The most dangerous places are:

  • The Police Station
  • Super Markets
  • Drinking Fountains
  • Coastal Roads and Railways
  • Factory District
