Summary of DayZ Frostline
News: Summary of DayZ Frostline
1 month ago

Here is a summary of the DayZ Frostline expansion DLC:

1. Map: Frostline is primarily a new map called Sakhal, an untouched archipelago with diverse environments inspired by the Kumchetka Peninsula of far east Russia.
2. Survival Mechanics: Introduces new survival mechanics including items, diseases, new wildlife, unique structures, and snowfall.
3. Climate: Late winter setting with temperatures dropping as low as -30 degrees Celsius (-22 degrees Fahrenheit), offering a brutal survival experience if temperatures are the same as Kumchetka Peninsula.
4. Terrain: Varied terrain from lush forests, rolling grasslands, rugged coastlines, to bleak tundras, vast mountain ranges, and volcanic activity(or hazards related to volcanic activity).
5. Size: Sakhal is approximately 83km², larger than Namalsk's landmass(not including ice sheets), with similarities in survival mechanics.
6. Points of Interest: Littered with frozen lakes, a giant (inactive?)volcano, villages, and diverse landmarks, offering exploration opportunities. It is modelled from Tanoa and molded into an icey landscape.
7. Lore: Sakhal was rumored to be a safe haven but turned out to be as dangerous as other locations(Chernarus and Livonia), with harsh cold as an additional challenge.
8. Release Details: Scheduled for release with update 1.26 in the last three months of 2024, available on all platforms for around $30 as an expansion DLC.
9. Availability: Not available for preorder but can be wishlisted on Steam: https://bit.ly/3Qzz0Ye
10. Compatibility: Requires the base game, included in future DayZ bundles, with Chernarus and Livonia remaining pretty much unchanged.
11. Exploration: Promises for players to "explore innovative structures and landmarks teeming with secrets", enhancing the gameplay experience.
12. Teasers: Revealed teaser images and video slices hinting at new features including wildlife (wolves, deer, possibly bears and Siberian tigers(speculation)), enhanced fishing mechanics(ice fishing?), new gear (ice axe, winter hat, goggles, gloves, wolf hat), and maybe improved skybox technology(could be a different skybox).
Additional details can be found in my video where I show all the text files, images and mp4: https://youtu.be/YCf-juu_w-k

DayZ Frostline Q and A:

1. When will Frostline be released?
The release of Frostline is set for Q4 2024, paired with our game update 1.26.

2. Will it be on consoles?
Yes, it will be available on all platforms: PC, Xbox and PlayStation.

3. What is the price of the new DayZ DLC?
There is no definitive for this currently, but it should be less than $30

4. DayZ 2 When?
As of now, we have no plans for a DayZ sequel. Our team is dedicated to refining, evolving, and adding depth to the current DayZ experience.

5. Pre orders or early access?
There are currently no plans for pre-orders or early access.

6. Will there be a special bundle offer for purchasing the new DLC alongside the base game?

7. Where is the Frostline DLC set in?
It is set in a rugged and forgotten volcanic archipelago in the far east, named Sakhal.

8. How large is Sakhal, and how does it compare to the original map?
Encompassing 83 km² of land, excluding the water surrounding the island, this is the most compact map our team has developed. Nonetheless, it aims to offer increased level of interaction, intriguing point of interests, and gameplay mechanics that necessitate a more cautious pace of movement to contend with the challenging climate.

9. Is Sakhal ported from Arma 3 Tanoa? Why?
Yes. Developing a brand-new landscape is a time-intensive process. By having the general landscape features— such as islands and hills—already defined, we were able to allocate our attention to refining other environmental ental elements within the given timeline. This approach ensured that the end product would be a unique map, with no compromise on detail or quality.

10. How is this DLC deviate from the base game?
The gameplay is designed to be a more severe and critical iteration of DayZ, featuring complex mechanics that not only present substantial challenges but also offer a fresh experience to keep even veteran players engaged.

11. Is Sakhal based on a real life location, much like all other official maps in DayZ?
Unlike previous official maps, Sakhal isn't based on a single real-life location; however, it is heavily inspired by the Kamchatka Peninsula in the easternmost part of Russia.

12. How does the DLC integrate with the existing DayZ world? Is it a seamless transition? How does the Frostline enhance the storytelling or lore of the DayZ universe?
As opposed to its mainland counterparts, Chernarus and Livonia, Sakhal was rumored to be a safe haven, thanks to its isolation in the Far East and disconnection from the wider world. Enticed by its status as a refuge, survivors who arrived on the island were tragically uninformed about the true nature of Sakhal, a forgotten archipelago with ice in its vein and fire in its heart. Far from being a sanctuary, the island presented a perilous journey that was more dangerous than any they had endured before.

13. Will the DLC include new assets, items?
Players can look forward to an array of winter cosmetics designed to combat the cold, as well as diverse wilderness environments peppered with a variety of wildlife. The map will also enrich the DayZ experience with new buildings, distinct areas, and intriguing points of interest that are in harmony with the overall theme.

14. Are there any plans for DLC-exclusive events or community challenges?
No plans for now. But we'd love to collaborate with community for events in the near future on Sakhal.

15. Can we expect any changes or additions to the base game with the DLC?
There will be no changes to the base . Chernarus and Livonia will stay the same aside from somegame minimal changes with 1.26.

WOBO Tools Patch #11 - Weapon Summary Tool
News: WOBO Tools Patch #11 - Weapon Summary Tool
4 months ago

- Added the DayZ Weapon Summary Tool to simplify the stats of all weapons in DayZ. This tool provides bar charts, a radar chart, area chart and an overall summary score based on the 5 main weapon stats(Damage, Range, Fire Rate, Control and Mobility). This tool is great for beginners, or those that don't care too much about complex stats and how they work, giving us a quick and simple look at the strengths and weaknesses of every weapon in the game without the need for prior knowledge.
- Added a radar chart to the Weapon Info Tool to display summary stats for all weapons. Clicking the radar chart sends you to the new Weapon Summary Tool with the weapon you have selected.
- Changed how recoil is recorded and split Recoil Control into two stats: Recoil Kick Control(Y-axis) and Recoil Stability(X-axis).
- Fixed a Firefox anchoring bug that sent you to the wrong location on some pages
- Fixed many item description errors
- Fixed all unclickable links bug on Light Mode

The plan for the website is eventually adding every item in DayZ to it so we can make more tools from the stats collected.
Thank you again for continuing to back this project! <3

WOBO 2.0 Roadmap
News: WOBO 2.0 Roadmap
1 year ago

I'm back from my wedding/honeymoon and everything went great, thanks for all the kind words and support! :)
Now that I'm back, WOBO 2.0 can begin!

WOBO 2.0 includes regular website updates and related videos to back up the additions to the website.
For example, a DayZ Loot Finder Tool will be added to the website soon that will tell you exactly which areas(industrial, military, civilian, etc) specific items spawn in, along with the chance it has to spawn in those locations... The video that backs up this new tool will explain loot tags, loot tiers and other information. Both the tool and video are standalone, but support one another.

Moreover, with the addition of the recent WOBO Tools Patch #9, item databases can be added a lot more easily to the website. This means Clothing, Melee Weapons, Explosives, Armor, Base Building Objects, etc will be added and configured to work with all tools to display stats, loot locations and other information. Separate tools can then connect to these item databases to, for example, display the strength of base walls and armor in DayZ vs melee, explosives and firearms.

With the addition of specific item databases will come guides to explain what the stats mean and which items are best/worst in each database. For example, a DayZ Melee Weapon database will include a Melee Weapon Guide video that explains all categories of melee weapons, and which ones are best in which scenarios. The DayZ Community can then use the website to stay up to date from patch to patch with any changes to melee weapon stats via the Changelog and the tools that are configured to display melee weapon stats/info.

So WOBO 2.0 is the expansion of the website to create an additional online resource for DayZ information and stats. However, DayZ updates(such as 1.19) will always take priority over website updates in order to keep the community up to date with any DayZ changes, and WOBO.Tools is not intended to replace the DayZ Wiki. I have spoken to some contributors of the DayZ Wiki and they are free to use any info from this website as long as a link to the source of the info is provided for reference and crosschecking outdated/incorrect info. DayZ is an incredibly complicated and in-depth game that changes every patch; we need all the resources we can get to understand its mechanics and stay up to date. I strongly believe more resources of info is a great thing for the DayZ community, so I ask any contributors of the DayZ Wiki to continue contributing to the DayZ Wiki and not rely solely on WOBO.Tools. This applies to everyone, don't 100% believe any info on WOBO.Tools... It could be wrong/outdated.

Finally, a big thanks to everyone that has supported me on this long journey of DayZ info mastery so far, your generosity and kindness motivates me more than you are aware. I look forward to your future reactions to the many videos, tips and tools that are on the way :)

-Fixed many bugs. If you get visual bugs still, try clearing your cache or doing a hard refresh(Ctrl+F5).

WOBO Tools Patch #9
News: WOBO Tools Patch #9

-Added the Weapon Vs Weapon Tool, Attachment Vs Attachment Tool and Ammo Vs Ammo Tool to compare items easier (simplified).
-These 9 tools bring the first working version of a scoring system for items on this website. Other tools have been modified to suit these changes.
-Added a 10th tool this patch called the DayZ Stat Info Tool, which provides additional infomation about how stats are converted from the game to WOBO Tools.
-A new navigation system has been added that allows much faster access to any part of the website, is mobile compatible and includes the color of tools on the menu.
-The new navigation system comes with a new notification system, highlighting content that is new to the website unless you have already seen that content. The new content is also highlighted in all content feeds.
-Added RSS Feeds to all content feeds and content pages to allow all content to be pushed to mobile apps, browser extensions and Discord. Click here to subscribe to all content on WOBO Tools. If you're unsure how to configure RSS Feeds, you can learn how to setup notifications here.
-Added firemodes of weapons to the Weapon Info Tool in the description of the weapon selected.
-Added if a weapon can jam or not to the description of a weapon. Note: durability will be added as a stat at a later date that will describe jam chance better.
-Added adverts to the website for users that are not logged in. This means WOBO Patreons, YouTube Members and Twitch Subscribers won't see these adverts. This is to help maintain a responsive web server and scale the website better.
-Added News, Changelog, Sponsorship and Donator pages to track entries easier.
-Patch notes from the DayZ forums are now configured to work with WOBO Tools and will be posted to the News Feed when DayZ updates occur.
-Added the ability to export item selections made on tools to other tools connected to the same database. Look for the "Export" text on some tools to transfer your selections to another tool.
-Added arrows to Info Tools that allows you to go to the next or previous weapon/ammo/attachment in that category. If the next/previous item is not inside the same category it will go to the next/previous category.
-Added the Projectile category to welcome the addition of the M79 Grenade Launcher, and moved the Flare Gun to this category.
-Added the Derringer Pistol, Sawed Off Magnum and Sawed Off Blaze from DayZ Patch 1.18.
-Twitch Subscribers can now get the access code for WOBO Tools via the WOBO Discord in the channel called wobo-tools-code.
-Added a URL shortener to the website that can be found on all Info and Stat Tools

-Reworked a lot of stats to make them all positive. This means the longer the stat bar is, the better that stat is, allowing us to quickly see which stats are best.
-Stat bars now correctly display the best and worst items with that stat on. For example, a 0% stat bar means it is the worst item with that stat on compared to similar items, preventing skewed stat bars.
-Split all stats into Primary, Secondary and Tertiary Stats based on how relevant they are; Primary = 100%, Secondary = 25% and Tertiary = 5%.
-The Attachment Info Tool will now only compare the stats on items inside their own category. For example, handguards will only be compared to handguards on this tool.
-Limiting the attachment category on the Attachment Stat Tool will now compare the stats on items inside that category only. However, not having the limit on compares all attachments to all other attachments regardless of category.
-Removed the legacy Weapon Stat Comparison Tool due to it being deprecated by the new Weapon Comparison Tool.
-Moved Tracer Elidgibility to the description of the ammo type selected on the Ammo Info Tool.
-The Maximum Ammo Capacity stat has been merged with the Maximum Chamber Capacity stat on DayZ weapons.
-Buckshot Health Damage and Shock Damage are no longer per pellet, but an average of all 8 pellets(4 pellets). Buckshot is unpredictable due to RNG, hence this choice to average the damage to an average of 4 pellets.
-The Changelog now outputs percentage differences to quickly get an idea of how much a stat changed.
-Buffs or nerfs in the Changelog are now indicated by color. Green is a buff, red is a nerf.
-Updated the Rapid Fire sounds on the Weapon Sound Comparison Tool for weapons that had their RPM changed recently.
-Redesigned the Wobology feed and renamed it to the Content feed, and renamed some other pages and categories.
-All tips on the tips page will now automatically unlock 7 days after they are released on this website(members get them immediately).

-Increased the speed of all tools and made most pages use much less bandwidth by consolidating code and databases.
-Fixed the Penetration Rating stat to display the correct value across all tools now.
-Removed the animation for stat bars, including the ability to toggle them on and off in Options due to a recent Windows 10 update stopping the stat bars from loading sometimes.
-Reduced the amount of spam the Changelog outputs on Discord and this website.
-Merged the fixed AUR A1 Optic stats with the AUR A1 weapon description. This means it is no longer on the Attachment Tools as an optic.

Immune System Tool Update + WOBO Health Update
News: Immune System Tool Update + WOBO Health Update
3 years ago

-Updated the Immunity Stat Checker Tool with the changes in DayZ 1.15.

Health update:
I was recently diagnosed with impingement syndrome, which is a condition that causes long-term pain in your shoulder due to bones being too close together.
The only way to separate these bones is surgery or physiotherapy, which I've been doing for the past 2 weeks. However, to give my arm the best chance of recovering, I've decided to do 2 more weeks of physiotherapy. Because of this, I won't be creating content for 2 weeks while I focus solely on my arm.
I hope you all had a great Christmas and happy new year!

3 years ago

There's been a lot of changes in DayZ patch 1.12, but these changes will not be updated on the wobo.tools website until 1.12 goes to stable branch.
As 1.12 goes to stable, this website should be fully up to date again within one week of its release.
Once updated, I will post news on here and Twitter that this website is up to date again.
The experimental values of 1.12 are likely to change before stable, hence this decision. Thanks for understanding.
