DayZ Now Has Tactical Bacon

DayZ Now Has Tactical Bacon

A rather hefty update made its way to the DayZ stable servers this morning. With it, DayZ has gained a lot of depth, including new animations,  new villages, new foodstuffs, and new clothing. A good number of fixes were also implemented, including the sad fact that you can no longer wear masks and hard helmets (no more awesome Motorcycle Helmets and Gas Masks…). Also, you shouldn’t overlook the fact that Tactical Bacon has finally made its way to Chenarus…
