Steel handcuffs, useful for handcuffing your friends and foes. As they can be locked easily, having keys to unlock them is recommended. — In-game description

Handcuffs are a type of equipment in DayZ Standalone.

General[edit | edit source]

This item is used to restrict an individual's ability to resist or use objects (by restraining their wrists). A key is required to unlock the handcuffs once they have been placed on someone's wrists.

Once an individual's hands have been restrained, they are able to struggle and to try and get out of them. The more durability the handcuffs have, the longer it will take to struggle out of them. To free yourself, hold z and left mouse button, which will cause the player to wriggle free. This is noticeable and is not advised if the captor is watching. A Hacksaw can also be used to break the handcuffs.

Handcuffed players have the ability to change stance, and move at a decreased speed. Things in the hotbar can be placed into the hands, but the inventory is not available.
