PLEASE bring back the pistol in your starting inventory. Far too hard to find a gun with full populated servers and 'intelligent' zombies.

This is a matter of opinion, and as such it should be discussed on the forums and not brought up here on the BugTracker.
I for one happen to disagree with you, as does about 50% of the player population. Posting it here only serves to confuscate the process of finding real bugs.

BugTracker is not really the appropriate place for this, and for what it's worth I think that removing the starter gun was one of the best changes in a while. It makes the early game a lot more challenging, and for me this equals more fun.

Further, it's my opinion that if you can't embrace "hardcore" changes like this, Day Z probably isn't the mod for you.

I can't put it on the Forums, I am not getting my activation e-mail from registering and I have contacted Webmaster and Support on the matter, awaiting for a reply.

p.s. I have labelled this as a feature request, not a bug :)

Updated by pogoman about 5 years ago

Feature request or nay it still does not belong here or anywhere, as even putting it on the forums will just get you flamed. The issue has been brought up thousands of times in numerous threads, and the general consensus is that it is staying. Adapt. Most people do not have problems finding a gun, on my last playthrough i found one in 20mins from a fresh spawn. Just because something doesn't work out for you the first few times, doesn't mean the game is at fault. Try again and you may have better luck, and be more careful around the zeds. Then if the game is still too hard, maybe this isn't the game for you.

This is DEFINATELY the sim for me, Love it, but i'm not the only one that complains about it. Numerous times I have spawned next to towns metres away from Zeds, aggro'd them and found myself running for miles with no way of defending myself. As for finding guns, that's not too bad if you don't die, it's finding the ammo that is harder.
