The Latest DayZ Update Brings Explosive Action to Bear

DayZ Update 1.18

Bohemia Interactive has released the latest update to DayZ, this time with explosive action that’s sure to please any fan of big booms. The update is now available for PC, Xbox, and PlayStation. It focuses on explosives and expands the available arsenal of weapons available to players as well as adds the new train wreck dynamic event.

With update 1.18, base raiders can now use the Grenade Launcher M79 to break the spirits and bases of unfriendly survivors. The M79 offers quite the big bang, with 3 types of 40mm ammunition available. Players can search for and find smoke grenades, explosive grenades, and even rare P-OX grenades that contain deadly gas.

If you’re looking for even more bang in your life, then you’re in luck, because you can now set a timer on new plastic explosives and craftable improvised explosives, as well as search for a detonator, to trigger them remotely. There’s also the possibility to cover your flanks in a firefight with the famous Clamore Mine, which offers immense directional damage at close range. And once you’ve run away with all that loot, you can celebrate the occasion with fireworks, which have managed to find their way into this explosive update.
