DayZ 1.7.3 Community Update

Posted 03 Nov 2012 in Community News, DayZ News, News

DayZ creator Dean “Rocket” Hall announced the first patch for DayZ that the general public helped create.

The DayZ patch notes show the update is mostly bug fixes but dogs have been added. Well, sort of. They’re not usable yet, they’re just kind of there, chilling. Below are the patch notes as shown on the official DayZ blog.

How to install


Use SixUpdater or DayZCommander to install the update.


Server hosters can get the new Hive files from (link was wrong version… will post shortly!). Only install this if you run a server! You also need the other 1.7.3 files (dayz_code.pbo and dayz.pbo).
