In the world of DayZ there's nothing worse than getting your guts ripped out by a bunch of flesh-eating zombies, unless you're getting violated by some item-hungry bandits. Well, not everyone stands around and takes their ravaging like a man... some people fight back and they have videos to prove it.
The first video is pretty tame and features an abandoned industrial building occupied by a handful of bandit stragglers, using the decrepit structure to pick off passer-byers and put the hurting on anyone who doesn't lay down and take their post-apocalyptic ravaging with passive candor.
A small group of friends decided to fight back, to track down the ravagers and bring to them the kind of justice you just don't see anymore. Despite having to fend themselves off from the undead and fight against the dwindling condition of their supplies, the bandit hunters pressed on, fighting the good fight. However, things don't quite go as planned, as the assault on the bandits turns into more of a retaliation.
For those of you who would rather read than watch, I can say that things eventually even out for the “good guys” and the fight against the bandits ends with a nice little bang.
It doesn't end there, though.
There's a second video of the exploits of these crafty bandit hunters scavenging throughout Cheranus for the less-savory of mankind. The second video is where things really take off. The name of the video is called “All Roads Lead North” and it's paced and edited superbly, giving viewers a sort of intense ride through the dangerous occupation of hunting down bandits and trying to survive against the zombie hordes. You can check it out in the video below.
Things really pick up at the 5:00 minute mark. Also, in the first video the zombies are made light of; the team doesn't consider them much of a threat. In the second video we get to see just how dangerous the zombies are at night. It's a frightening experience that really hammers home just how important it is to be aware of your surroundings. It also reinforces that bandit hunting isn't easy.
I'm hoping bandit hunting is just as intense when DayZ's standalone launches at some point. The server/client architecture is the only hold up at this point, but I suspect it could be launching soon given how quiet it has been on the DayZ tumblr front.
