" We don’t have much in the way of military gear in the game yet. It’s coming, but isn’t in there yet. We can’t promise when it will be in there but it is a priority" Thought somebody said there was going to be none?
So, I would rate myself a pretty poor DayZ player. My laptop gives me FPS from 10 to around 25 up and down depending on my location. I have never been a great FPS player and usually panic and fire anywhere in the general direction of the enemy.
This time was a bit different. I had been looting in Vybor, got myself really nicely geared up, I had an AKM with 3 big 75 round drum mags! I was very happy with my score and had decided I would head down to Dolina for tomorrow in case they managed to work on the revert.
Passing through Stary Sobor I had a quick look at the player list which was around 15 players online, had a good scout around the city before taking a drink from the pump type well in the middle of the street. Then.. a HUGE bang and whizz past my head, followed by another 2 bangs. I jumped up and ran down the road zig zagging as I went... no more shots were fired at this time. I hit the field just below the huge barn and ran towards the hedges zig zagging again with bullets whizzing past my head, I turned my head to see 3 guys all geared chasing after me.
A hedge and a dip in the landscape saves my life here, I hit the bottom of the ridge knowing I am out of their line of sight. I can keep on running now in any direction and should get away safely. With my past DayZ experience this is a good idea for me... BUT I dont... I see the piano building and think its time to make a stand and lay a trap.
Once inside I place my medikit bag on the floor just inside the office room on the top floor, I position myself out of view of the stairs but just so I can see when they reach the top. 3 guys might just run on by, but if they come I was ready... suddenly I hear zombies, a few moans and footsteps. Then louder footsteps.. ok by now my heart is pounding in my ears.
I see the first guy run right up to the medikit and look down, the second close behind him, I take my aim and blast out about 30 rounds into these two guys who drop to the floor, I jump up just so I can see the stairs as the last guys head appears between the rungs of the stairs, bullet penetration through the wood, lots of holes and a 3rd dead guy!
This trash talking that followed was not pretty, I was mad and buzzing from adrenaline, but I took the time to hide all their bodies and give them a nice message in direct chat.
So.. on checking my 75 drum mag... I had 15 rounds left... but hey at least I came out of a 3 vs 1 intact! They had 2 mosins and a Pump Shotgun... I had my best ever firefight in Dayz!
