Elektrozavodsk, 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.

The name derives from "Electric/Industrial Factory" in Russian.

[edit] DayZ Info

Elektro is a spawn point for many Survivors and thus is a hotspot for PvP activity. But with this risk comes reward.

Elektro has an office building, a hospital, a church, and two fire stations all within a small distance around the northeast part of the city. Since all of these major loot spots are located very close together, players are much more concentrated in one area than in other cities, especially 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 it when near the fire stations/supermarket/hospital 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.

The fire stations will spawn military Loot which will give you a good chance of getting a strong Weapon early into the game.

Don't loiter around after looting the city because it's a very high traffic area and your chance of dying is pretty high if you're not careful.

[edit] Trivia

Elektrozavodsk has been built after the real world town of Povrly, Czech Republic.

[edit] Guns of Choice

Because of how many mountains surround Elektrozavodsk, it is one of the few towns where players can feel safe to chose whichever gun they prefer. Indeed, the mountains and the high buildings offer a perfect camping spot for players equipped with a Mosin 9130 and the small roads and many buldings of Elektrozavodsk make every other gun a viable choice.
