Extendable watchtower. Can contain multiple floors to provide height advantage. — In-game description

The Watchtower is a type of structure in DayZ Standalone.

Watchtowers can be up to three levels tall, with two modular panel walls on three sides of each level.

Construction[edit | edit source]

To begin constructing a Watchtower, a Watchtower Kit needs to be deployed. Once a Watchtower Kit is deployed, Level 1 Base can be constructed and dismantled using a Shovel. The Watchtower Kit will be dropped once the Base is built.

Bases[edit | edit source]

To build additional levels on the Watchtower, the base and the roof of the previous level must be constructed.

Each level's base (L1 Base, L2 Base, L3 Base) requires 4x Wooden Logs.

Each level's roof (L1 Roof, L2 Roof, L3 Roof) requires 5x Nails and 2x Wooden Planks.

Each level's stairs (L1 Stairs, L2 Stairs, L3 Stairs) require 5x Nails and 2x Wooden Planks.

Walls[edit | edit source]

Each level has three walls. Each wall can build an upper and lower panel, and has an attachment slot for a Camo Net.

Level 1 Walls can also mount 2x Barbed Wire, which have to be constructed using Pliers.

Wall Base[edit | edit source]

A Wall Base must be constructed to add Wood or Metal Plate panelling. Wall Base panels can still be built regardless of whether their level base has been built.

Each Wall Base requires 5x Nails and 2x Wooden Planks.



Wood Panelling[edit | edit source]

A Wooden Plank panel can be added to a Wall Base.

Each Wood panel requires 5x Nails and 2x Wooden Planks.



Metal Panelling[edit | edit source]

A Metal Plate panel can be added to a Wall Base.

Each Wood panel requires 5x Nails and 2x Metal Plates.

Roof[edit | edit source]

In order to finish the Watchtower, you have to build the roof by using 10x Nails and 4x Sheet Metal.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Stairs are not required to construct the next level's base, however it may be inaccessible without them.
  • If Level 1 Base is deconstructed using a Shovel, excluding the 4x Wooden Logs, any resources inside any level will be lost.
  • Resources can only be placed in currently constructed levels, but if a level is deconstructed with resources inside any of its respective slots, they will remain and can still be manipulated.
  • Tools that can perform multiple actions depend on a player's position, meaning some actions may be difficult to locate.
