DayZ is a bit marmite – some of us hate it, but more still absolutely love it. If you’re in the latter camp, you’re going to be very interested in the latest explosive update that has hit the game.

Rolling out right about now for DayZ on PC, Xbox, and PlayStation is Update 1.18. This builds out the popular zombie survival game by focusing on explosives, expanding the game’s ever-growing arsenal of weapons. The update also offers a new dynamic event – this time in the form of train wrecks – which can lead to unexpected encounters on railroads located all around the map. And if you still want more, you got it, as the update also includes the compact Derringer, as well as sawed-off variants for the Blaze rifle and community favourite Revolver.

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.

Update 1.18 also pushes DayZ in terms of the map variety by adding dynamic train wrecks. These come in three tiers – ranging from civilian to military trains – and offer some of the best loot available, including the M79. Be careful, however, because former passengers may appear in deadly swarms if you happen to make too much noise.

There’s more though and should you be looking to get ahead in DayZ, then you’ll be able to by surprising your foes with a concealed weapon. The Derringer, for example, is small enough to fit into a teddy bear, though the double-barrel .357 offers enough damage to deal a fatal blow. And if you love combining different load-outs, then you’ll be thrilled to hear that the Blaze and Revolver now offer craftable sawed-off variants. These variants reduce a weapon’s weight and a number of slots needed in the inventory, making them perfect secondary weapons during heated combat when reloading is simply not an option.

And finally, with Update 1.18, server owners are better able to customize their servers now (consoles included) thanks to a bunch of new tools and options.

The update brings:

  • M79 Grenade Launcher
  • 4 x smoke varients
  • 40mm Explosive
  • Contaminant Gas
  • Industrial C4
  • IED Remote explosive
  • Claymore
  • Contaminate Gas Grenades
  • Fireworks Launcher
  • Derringer Pistol
  • Sawed-off variants of Blaze and Revolver
  • Dynamic Train event
  • More Assets for Console community servers

Update 1.18 for DayZ offers more explosive havoc and memorable encounters than ever before. Surely that makes it the perfect time to jump in and join the fiery fun? Let us know in the comments.

If you haven’t yet played DayZ, pick it up from your favoured digital store. The Xbox Store will sort you out on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S. We’d recommend playing it through Game Pass.
