    Arrow Raiding The Island

    They attacked me on my own.

    3 helicopters against a lone survivor. Not honorable in the slightest.

    As soon as I could, I headed back to base camp. Grabbing the essentials I get a friend online to regroup at our chopper.

    The damn thing wouldn't fly, we had intentionally sabotaged it to make sure that no one would make off with it in the night. We just forgot that without the correct parts, we were also grounded.

    We spent the next hour or so scrimping around for some scrap metal and a spare rotary assembly. It didn't take us long to find the scrap metal we needed but those specialist parts took a keen eye, a steady hand and bucket loads of patience.

    Finally!

    We had the pieces we needed but we still had to make it back to the chopper.

    We had set up camp in the middle of nowhere so re-spawning was just not an option.

    Sticking to the road least traveled, the trees were our best cover. Only one other survivor spotted but it was of no consequence to us, ghosts in the forest, we wanted no attention.

    We had landed the chopper just off the side of a road cutting through a dense part of woodland, in a small clearing. Even the most experienced pilot would have normally avoided this landing spot but needs must.

    The rotor was badly damaged, even before we sabotaged it the chopper grazed a tree. Upon repairing the rotor (and pulling a few rogue branches from the air intake vents) and instruments the chopper was in a condition where it should get off the ground and as long as those instruments were okay we shouldn't have any close encounters with the trees again.

    Success... take off!

    Time to get revenge on those that would attack me!



    Part II

    Hi Shakis,just watched part 1,so far so good.I found the 1st segment interesting as i noticed you using stanag SD rounds.You commented you thought you hit the tavi guard in the tower.Now i might be preaching to the iniated but you have a 200m range with SD,but 300m range with normal stanag rounds.It may be a tip if you did not know or at least for any new players to the game.Did i detect a scottish dialect,LOL,and are you from these same fair isles.

    Look forward to part 2 mate.

    neil.

    haha, I wasn't aware that there was a difference in range between SD and regular... I will be looking out for this in future.. makes sense since SD rounds are generally low velocity (thank you hitman).

    Aye, we all (my team mates and I) hail from bonnie Scotland! Glasgow to be precise lol. I just found out tonight, but there were a whole load of people from in and around Glasgow on the server I recorded this on lmao... small world.

    Part 2 is encoding just now, I hope to have it up by morning... I decided to have a little fun with the video too... trying out my mad skillz lol.

    Hello Shakis,alright mate,just watched part 2,aaah the old distraction trick,works like a charm,been caught out like it myself,focus on stalking the prey not realising you are being stalked yourself. LOL.

    I am glad the stanag round ranges was of some use and i will put this link in which may help with some of the weapons/ammo/gear in Origins. http:www.dayz.gamepedia.com/loot#loot_sheet
    Hope this helps and look forward to future uploads.From sunny Suffolk,peace.

    neil.

    p.s note,this link was originally put up regarding the original DayZ mod so not all aspects/elements are contained in Origins.
