Break out the biohazard gear, because DayZ has been contaminated. The latest update for the zombie survival game has added new contaminated areas, as well as a new assault rifle for handling the meat-based threats you’ll encounter inside them.
The contaminated areas are covered in a sickly green gas, for which you’ll need to wear protective NBC gear. Bohemia Interactive says it’s given special attention to the new contaminated zones to make sure they’re creepy and immersive, adding new visual and sound effects to enhance the feeling of being in a lethal environment. The zones come in two varieties: there are static areas, where you’ll find high-tier loot hidden away among the clouds of gas and hordes of undead; and dynamic areas, which move around the map.
Update 1.14 also adds a new assault rifle, the bullpup pattern LE-MAS. It’s a 5.56x45mm that accepts a new 25-round magazine, and it can be fired in single, burst, and fully automatic modes. To go with the new rifle, DayZ also has a new set of animations for bullpup style firearms.
