Elektrozavodsk (pronunciation), or "Elektro" for short, is a large city located on the southern coast of Chernarus, east of Chernogorsk. Many building types are located here, and it is a source of high activity due to both its size and its importance as a spawn location.
The name derives from "Electric/Industrial Factory" in Russian.
Elektrozavodsk is frequently the site of firefights in DayZ. Its variety of loot spawns, and its proximity to other spawn points such as Kamyshovo and Solnichniy have made it a priority target for new spawns to reach in an attempt to get gear. As a result, this has seen a large population of bandits inhabit the area. There are select areas within the city that are more dangerous than others. This is due to the layout of the city itself, where a majority of the priority loot spawns are clustered together. The Police Station, Hospital and School are all on the same block. There are also two Fire Stations in Elektrozavodsk and both are dangerous places. These locations are where most of the firefights break out. The other major threat is on 'Sniper Hill'. It is located directly east of the school, and provides sniping onto the Police Station, School, Hospital, Market and North-most Fire Station. This is however the only true sniping point outside of the city.
People should be cautious of two other locations. The hills north of Elektrozavodsk are a popular thoroughfare for people avoiding conflict. The Power Plant located just outside of the city on the east-bound highway is a popular staging point for larger groups of bandits.
The most dangerous places are:
- The Police Station
- Super Markets
- Drinking Fountains
- Fire Stations
- Hospital and School
- Hillsides on the north and east of the city
- Power Plant just outside Elektrozavodsk on the east-bound highway.
As of patch 0.47.124641 multiple zombie types have been introduced. They are all as dangerous as each other. However Zombie threat levels are determined by the environment, how many non-aggro spawns the zombies start with and how easy it is to lose a pursuing zombie. Being a major city, Elektrozavodsk spawns a lot of standing zombies. This in turn makes approaching it, even on an empty server problematic. There is a lot of cover for crawler zombies to sneak up on the player, as well as lots of cover for sound generated spawns to spawn behind. Like most cities in the current version of DayZ, it is possible to get swarmed with more then five or six zombies at a time. Elektrozavodsk puts you at less risk of being flushed out of cover by zombies, and more at risk of the zombies themselves, there is a lot of clutter in Elektrozavodsk making it far easier for zombies to get the jump on players and get a hit or two in before any action can be taken. In these regards it is far more dangerous to new (unarmed) players.
Buildings of Interest
- Fire Station (x2)
- Office Building
- Power Plant
- Dock (large size)
- Police Station
The city has an Office Building, a Hospital, a church, and two Fire Stations all within a short distance of the northeast part of the city. Since all of these major loot spots are located close together, players are much more concentrated in one area than in other cities such as Chernogorsk.
The large hill to the east of the city is a prime spot for Bandits. It is best to stay out of sight of this hill when near the major loot buildings to avoid being sniped. On the other hand, it is an excellent place to find military-grade loot, as the bandits there will often be heavily armed if you choose to engage them.
The Fire Station will spawn excellent loot which will give you a good chance of getting strong equipment early into the game. Don't loiter around after looting the city because it is a very high traffic area and your chance of dying is relatively high if you're not careful.
Directly north of the city is a Power Plant that has its own good loot as well.
- Elektrozavodsk has been modeled after the real world town of Povrly, Czech Republic.
