DayZ, the survival game by Bohemia Interactive, received a small patch yesterday. The patch made an important change to M79 Launcher, which was added a few weeks ago. It also brought changes to the server and fixed more than a dozen bugs.

The patch increased the resistance of base-building wooden walls against explosive damage. From now on, the M79 Launcher won’t jam anymore. A server crash related to vehicles is addressed, and The Derringer will now display explosive shells.

  • The M79 Launcher can no longer jam
  • Slightly increased resistance of the base building wooden walls against explosive damage (tied to plastic explosive fix)
  • It was not possible to access certain clothing containers in the vicinity
  • A non-functional "combine" option was displayed for plastic explosives with the remote detonator
  • Fixed a server crash related to vehicles
  • The Derringer was missing a reload sound after only one bullet was shot
  • The Derringer did not display ejected shells
  • The character got stuck in walking speed after dying while in inventory
  • It was possible to arm an empty improvised explosive using an alarm clock or kitchen timer
  • Consuming an item assigned to a quick slot could result in the slot becoming unresponsive
  • Raising hands with an opened map in hands could result in desynchronization (
  • Widgets were still displayed after disabling the HUD via keybinding
  • Plastic explosives were dealing inconsistent damage (this also includes additional damage rebalance to reflect this fix)
  • An improvised explosive with one plastic explosive was doing more damage than one with two explosives attached
  • Disarmed plastic explosives and improvised explosives could not be picked up
  • Timers from the improvised explosive could not be disarmed
  • Ruined landmines and bear traps were still triggered on contact
  • Cargo of vehicles and barrels was not displayed properly (

The patch notes can also be read via the official DayZ forum.
