    Currently carrying an L85A2 and AS50, heaps of .50 ammo, two or three STANAG mags, every item of equipment bar the radio, two water bottles and I'm wearing a ghillie suit. Also carrying spare GPS, NV goggles, 2x rangefinders and a tent.

    I'll swap the L85A2 for a machine gun as soon as I find one as I already have four of them.

    1. A single other human player
    2. Any loot at all.

    okay, so hunted around a bit.

    on DE 516 there's a small campsite ~500m south of ours, bottom of the west tree line (down the hill west from the road). It's surrounded by barbed wire and sandbags but there's an obvious gap. It spawns an M14, M107, PDW, stanag ammo, antibiotics and a few odds and ends. I've just looted it and transferred some of the stuff to our camp, i'll check it tomorrow and if it's respawned then it's probably handy to keep a note of. If nothing else it'd be handy to stop at when running back north if we got attacked near our camp again.

    Can I trade you anything for the L85?
    (Ran in to another player last night at the airfield, we killed each other, I had a M4A1 and a AS50 *which I never got to use* so back at Cherno with a few basics heading to Starry)

    Parge you need to find one of the main cities along the coast and trust me you will find loot and players. Players that want to kill you for your single bandage you are carrying probably...or just for fun...

    I hit up cherno last night and stocked my player with food, compass and medical supplies. Very little ammo but im going to hopefully solve that on my way north. With new characters I always hit one of the cities first before I go north.

    I was wandering around Orlovets and a van shows up and 4/5 guys in ghillie suits stop for me, all nice and friendly so I jump in as they head towards Berezino.

    As they're going through Berezino, I decide to jump out.

    Protip, don't eject out of a moving car.



    I wasn't even mad, I just laughed for a while.

    done and done

    some guy just attacked me in lopatino, he had a ghillie and i think had been stalking me in the dark, he fired half a dozen shots and missed, and i ran round a corner and turned, as soon as he came round i opened fire and he logged off before hitting the floor (which is now spurting blood).

    guys, we've been screwed.

    all we've got is the tractor, the sniper rifles and better gear is all gone, along with the other vehicles. A guy on the bike shot fluidic, i logged in to see him heading off N/NE towards the other campsite.

    this is a sad/frustrating/infuriating day.

    That's DayZ for you! Eggs and baskets etc.

    Wonder if that tent I found the other day is still around...

    Are our tents flattened now? Might be that he didn't save (if they're still there) and they'll respawn when server restarts!

    The tents are still there, as is some of the loot, just not most of the good stuff. Hopefully they didn't save them and after a server restart they'll be back :s

    we have multiple bases most likely one of the biggest in day z it would have eventually come to light. i don't see how a gillie l85 in a tree was shot as soon as i logged in 50m from base in the middle of nowhere guy just rode up to me on our motorbike....while i was doing a bank transfer on my other screen -.-

    i roughly know where their base is we will be hunting.

    The main problem now is that our location is known. We'll have to salvage whatever we can and up sticks methinks. Then find some new tents and set them up somewhere else.

    Might be worth setting up one tent at any future sites and making them far enough apart so that you can't see any other tents while at any particular tent?

    If it's any consolation, you've likely finished him. Assuming you managed to put him into shock and bleeding he'll log back in to a three minute or so unconsciousness during which he will likely bleed out unless he has friends standing by on a different server.

    Did they find campsite 2 on the ridge? There is still an AS50 up there.
