Finally got Day Z working. Problem is, the newest update removed the starter pistol. What happens is that now there is no means of defending yourself unless you find a weapon, which isn't easy at all. Weapons are usually in towns, which are filled with zombies, but you can't kill the zombies when you don't have a weapon, etc.
^ Best get good fast at sneakin' around and losin' zambies. That, or learn where you're gonna find good loot ASAP.
