The Military Barracks are buildings that were used pre-outbreak to accommodate military and paramilitary units of Chernarus. Namely, the Chernarussian Defence Forces. Their presence in DayZ Standalone is mostly within the bounds of Military Bases and other facilities.
These areas are notorious for bandit activity due to its high loot spawn rates. Unarmed survivors can quickly gear up in these areas; however, it must be noted that the high amounts of loot in this area make them a target for snipers and bandits.
