DayZ update 1.11 adds new “badass” rifle, live on all platforms

Accompanying DayZ 1.11, Bohemia Interactive have outlined the changes in a new blog post while reporting that DayZ has broken new player records in 2021. They stress that this new update doesn’t add anything major in terms of new content and is mainly focused on stability, making fixes, and removing exploits.

There is one notable new addition to DayZ, however: a “badass” new rifle, the SVAL.

We decided to name it SVAL, which is the Czech word for muscle. The weapon is derived from the existing VSS rifle, uses 9×39 ammo with an integral suppressor, and has been modified for close-range combat, with the added ability to attach a flashlight and universal sights (western types). We also added a new 20 round magazine for 9×39 ammo, which can be used with both the SVAL and VSS. And we responded to your feedback regarding the signal pistol (introduced in 1.10), so flares should fall much slower now.

Listed below are the console patch notes for DayZ update 1.11. Click here for the PC Experimental 1.11 changelog.
