DayZ Addon

This addon takes some of the apocalyptic elements in DayZ which is a popular survival game for PC and brings them to Minecraft. Experience Minecraft in a post-apocalyptic styled world with more zombies and modern weapons to fight them. If you enjoy survival mode then take it to the next level with this zombie survival addon!

Creator: Hexdro, Twitter Account
Updated: 11 July, 2017 (read changelog)


Some of the mobs have been changed into zombies and other types of creatures which exist in the DayZ game.

Infected (zombies, zombie pigmen, husks) are hostile zombies which roam the world both day and night. The Infected are both strong and fast and this makes them the most serious threat in the Overworld.

Survivors (villagers) inhabit small settlements (villages) and they are always available for trading. No one is safe anymore. The Survivors are also under constant threat by the Infected.

Bandits (strays, wither skeletons and skeletons) are humans who have gone hostile just to be able to survive. The Bandits are best to be avoided since they are usually equipped with an assault rifle and will shoot players on sight. Some of them have just a melee weapon though.

Stray Dogs (wolves) are lonely dogs who have lost their owners some time during the apocalypse. Their behavior is neutral. You can tame them with Dog Food.

Weapons & Armor

This addon changes a bunch of the vanilla items in Minecraft to make them better suited for an apocalyptic survival world. The items are dropped by the mobs which can be found above on this page.

  • Throwing Knife (Snowball): This one has a good chance for a knockback effect and it also deals some damage.
  • Grenade (Egg): A high powered grenade. Deals a good chunk of damage and causes a great explosion.
  • Makarov Pistol (Ender Pearl): Deals some good damage but it has a short cooldown between each use.
  • AK47 (Fishing Rod): Hard to aim with but deals quite a lot of damage.
  • M4A1 (Bow): Good aim but not as powerful as the AK47. You need M4A1 mags (Arrows) to use it.
  • Homemade Molotov (Bottle o’ Enchanting): Throwable explosive which causes fire.
  • Canned Food (Mushroom Stew): Dropped by certain mobs and villagers trade them
  • Green Camouflage (Iron Armor)
  • Leather Armor (Diamond Armor)
  • Plastic Armor (Golden Armor)



  • Fixed text files for the resource pack so that the names for items are correct. Example: Snowball = Throwing Knife and so on
  • Added Homemade Molotovs (explosive and causes fire)
  • Fixed bugs with the wolf skin
  • Added Dog Food which can be used to tame stray dogs (wolves). Dropped by bandits and the infected
  • Added Canned Food which is dropped and can also be traded. The recipe is the same as for Mushroom Stew
  • Villagers are known as the Survivors. Survivors carry all kinds of different items which they trade. Some trade mags (arrows) and others sell armor and so on

  24. Minecraft lord15 says:

    I have 2 things to tell u:
    1. How do u get that resource and behaviour thing because I only have the global resources and when I’m playing in game and I go to the settings I find that global resources has split into behaviour and resource pack things.
    2. Most (sorry let me rephrase that) ALL!!!! behaviour packs never download it will say importing (for example) racing car behaviour pack, then it will say successfully imported racing car behaviour pack then I go into global resources but it’s not there so I try and redownload it it says failed to import racing car behaviour pack duplicate pack deleted.
    Sorry I wrote so much it’s just these things I need help with.

    • Rustelk2930 says:

      To get the resource and behavior packs, go to the Minecraft website to the addons page,

      To apply the behavior packs, press the pencil icon near the world name to edit the world, then select behavior packs and add them on.

    • Assistant answering says:

      When you successfully imported the pack you press the blue thing GO TO MINECRAFT ok not sure what it was but yeah then you will go to Minecraft and will start importing the files.

  25. Minecraft lord15 says:

    Also can u tell me how to upload maps

  26. Proxyl Gloxander Orejas Fiel says:

    Why bandits will not attack zombies?

  27. Raptorstar_YT says:

    It’s good. It’s just that I don’t like the gun/bow behaviour. Still like a bow. Should go straight forward

  28. Assistant answering says:

    When you successfully imported the pack you press the blue thing GO TO MINECRAFT ok not sure what it was but yeah then you will go to Minecraft and will start importing the files.

  29. DeanAngelo03 says:

  32. Redking12 says:

  33. GameKJacoby says:

  34. Fernandito says:

    Shotgun doesnt work for me. Texture for it loads but it doesn’t do any damage. Glitch on me or an update screwed it up? Please respond I really like this addon.

  35. Dodo bird says:

    Did the textures get updated?

  36. lul says:

    nice addon mate dale!!!!!!

  37. SpidetQuak says:

    I really like this idea maybe spiders can be crawlers? Just a thought, but other than that this is cool.

  38. ariantt says:

    Can you make a costume map for it!?

  39. NotLamentThatMCPEDLDude says:

    I think you really should add zombies also attacking bandits, instead of just survivors and players. It makes it more realistic because it’s like they have some sort of immunity of something that prevents zombies from killing them that isn’t just fair. Please add this, I’m sure it would make it more like Day Z than ever! 😀

  40. JohnnyRock199 says:

    Editor, Is there a map for this add-on?

  41. MafloBLITS says:

  42. Anonmous says:

    Can you make a world for us ;-;

  43. Snake101 YT says:

    Why don’t the survivors have guns? I mean I was able to just make an additional addon so they would shoot Zombies, but some people may not know how to do that, and it would still save some time and storage for the people who can, anyways. GIVE THE SUVIVORS GUNS!

  44. Sage Smith says:

    Can you make the survivors be able to defend themselves? Like give them guns and let them wear different armor?

  45. Abubakr says:

    Help! The resource pack brings me to a fake iPhone 8 competition! I really hoped that I could download it 😢

  54. sashRB256 says:

  55. sashRB256 says:


  56. Slayer says:

  66. RagingArmaggedon says:

  67. Isack Gonzales says:
