Day Z 1.7.2 patch may cause equipment loss

The Day Z 1.7.2 patch has been released, packing in a host of new features and the risk of losing some equipment.


After a short delay, the Day Z 1.7.2 patch for ArmA 2 has launched. That delay didn't quite stamp out all of the bugs, though, because the mod developers say that this update might make you lose some equipment. It also packs in a host of fixes and new features, as usual.

A tweet from the development team said it could cause "equipment loss and loading problems," but on the bright side it improves server performance and lag. Other fixes include noise reduction through objects and a spawn fix. A few new features include smoother visibility based on the weather, bear traps that break players' and infected legs, sound reduction in rain and fog, and a replacement of the player syncing system.

The team says that over 420,000 people are playing it now, with 22,000 concurrent at peak and 10,000 off-peak. The team originally planned to have two servers, but the game now sports more than a thousand.

        I don't think anyone of us lost anything last night so hopefully you'll be fine.

        L85s were removed from tents and personal inventories. They still exist and you can find them, but they are void slots and will be removed again the next time you relog.

        Some empty Jerry Cans on cars didn't survive, etc.

        According to Rocket, the L85 removal was an accident, not a gameplay tweak.

        You haven't updated or are trying to connect to old / new servers.
