DayZ Rifle Category

Halfway to a Sniper Rifle, but better than a melee weapon. Rifles are a good mid-game firearm that you replace quickly when you get military tier loot. While Rifles in DayZ do appear to perform like Sniper Rifles in some areas, they lack the damage, range and zeroing of long range guns. The line between what is a Rifle and what is a Sniper Rifle is very thin in DayZ and may change over time due to the addition of Weapon Attachments.


About DayZ Weapons

Weapons in DayZ can be split into serveral weapon categories that are as follows: Assault Rifles, Sniper Rifles, Sub Machine Guns, Rifles, Shotguns, Pistols and Projectile Firearms.

DayZ weapons have a lot of stats that impact how a weapon will react to different situations. These stats can be changed slightly or drastically by attaching attachments to your weapons in DayZ.

With most weapons allowing attachments in DayZ, you can customise how your weapon performs in-game. However, most weapon attachments don't do much to improve your weapon.
