The latest update for DayZ introduces two variants of the iconic AUR assault rifle. The first is the A1 variant, which has a fixed scope, a 30-round magazine, and limited customizability. This is perfect for those who want a reliable gun right from the get-go.

However, if you have a knack for customization, the AX variant will satisfy your needs. When using this, you can equip a variety of scopes, suppressors, and it is compatible with standardized magazines as well.

To up the variety, the developers also introduced a brand new female survivor, which you can choose in the character selection screen.

Another significant addition is the hunter vest. This equipment has a good storage capacity so that you can carry everything that you need. This can be found around the hunting areas.
