DayZ is one of the most harrowing zombie titles in gaming today, but things are about to get even worse (or awesome, depending on how you look at it!) - cannibalism is hitting the game soon! You'll be able to eat other fallen humans in-game, and that sounds, well, extremely disturbing. Prima Games has the scoop! And if you need any additional tips for surviving in the game as it is, check out their tips for doing just that!
How to Skin, Quarter and Eat Humans in DayZ
Note: Cannibalism is a part of 0.51 Experimental as of November 14, 2014. It is not in the stable version just yet.
Just like you would hunt any other animals in DayZ, you will need to find and kill a human before you can cook and eat him. The most logical places to find people might (currently) be in Elektro or Cherno, but those are also death traps where you are just as likely to end up being the meal, rather than the chef. Try setting up an ambush along some of the main roads that lead to these cities, then wait for and kill your meal when the opportunity presents itself.
Now that you've killed someone, the next step is to skin and quarter them, and for that you are going to need a Knife or possibly a Machete. Put the bladed object in your hand, then crouch and look at the potential dead person in front of you. If you don't see the option to skin and quarter the body, use your mouse scroll wheel to try and find it. Keep in mind that the condition your blade is in will impact how much meat you get per steak.
