March 27, 2019 at 1:38pm

The DayZ Xbox One Patch Notes for March 27th, 2019 have been revealed with a number of fixes and tweaks to the experience. This is of course the console version of the massive open world zombie survival game. Players battle against each other and zombies in a large persistent world. The patch notes can be found below, note that things tend to change over time. Restarting the game/console may be necessary and an update will need to be applied.

The DayZ Xbox One Patch Notes:
This is the 1.0 launch update.

New Firearms
-SK 59/66
A ten-shot semi-automatic rifle fed from an internal magazine. It is an older model, but still reliable, using 7.62x39mm rounds. Can be equipped with a PU scope and an improvised suppressor.

CR-527 A bolt-action hunting rifle, fed from a detachable magazine. It's light-weight and accurate when used at intermediate ranges. Uses 7.62x39mm rounds. Can be equipped with a Hunting Scope and an improvised suppressor.

Persistence Fixes
-Undesirable persistence wipes were definitely among the most annoying issues reported in the previous patch. With 1.01, they've introduced a system of Persistence Backups that aims meant to prevent problems with saving of the persistence data on the servers.

Performance
-Generally should remove flying cars and when sixty players are active it'll run smoother with a better FPS.

Status Indicators
-icon status indicators that better communicate bleeding damage and the effect of medication (for example, the vitamins will now boost your immune system).
-bleeding damage penalty when walking barefoot. Furthermore, we removed the chance variable for bleeding damage dealt by bullets. Now, every bullet scratch causes bleeding 100 percent of the time.

Controls
-press RB/LB when you are in a raised stance with a firearm, to lean around corners
-if you are in a raised stance with fists (or melee), press RB and LB to execute a dodge move
-hold Left Stick when in iron sight to hold your breath and aim more precisely
