About DayZ Stats

The weird and wonderful world of DayZ Statistics is a complex one that has taken years of research to understand and apply to the tools on this website. With that said, some stats may not translate exactly from this website to DayZ; take these stats with a grain of salt.

Using the DayZ Stat Info Tool you can gain a good understanding of how stats translate from DayZ to WOBO Tools, giving you the knowledge you may need to make some of the more complex choices in DayZ.

If you believe any of the stats on this tool are incorrect or incomplete, please contact WOBO. Stats can be difficult to understand in a game as deep and detailed as DayZ, and I could use the help!
