How to Make a Splint in DayZ

Get one of these applied before the undead get you!

Broken limbs in DayZ are no joke! Splints help to reset limbs that have been broken so that you can also avoid passing out and becoming an easy target for enemies. They are not as easy to walk around with when applied, but it sure does beat fainting on the side of the road for you to become even more of a victim to attack!

(Sticks can be obtained from cutting nearby bushes with your knife, axe or machete).

  • Get Two Small Sticks from your inventory and place them into your hands.
  • Choose rags or bandages from inside your bag.
  • Choose the Splint Recipe from the crafting options menu.
  • Press and keep B held to combine the sticks with the bandages.
  • Pull up the item screen and go to the Vicinity Tab, take the splint from it.
  • Put in on the limb that is broken, or place it in your bag for later use.
