Day Z photo diary



Hours into the day, we finally encounter our first bandit. And...he's dead? Wait, no. He's just unconscious. "So I'm gonna shoot that guy on the ground, is that cool?" "Do it."

AUDIO: I recorded our Mumble chatter as we were playing. Here's what our comms sounded like when we saw the bandit body . (Beware: plenty of panic-inspired profanity.)
