DayZ Update 1.06 available for download, adds fishing, bears and 4 new weapons, full patch notes

Bohemia has released a brand new update for the standalone version of DayZ. According to the release notes, update 1.06 adds bears and four new weapons. In addition, this patch adds fishing as a new activity, via which players can catch junk, and occasionally some fish.

Moreover, this patch adds the ability to harvest sticks from bushes with bare hands, and the ability to break long-sticks into small sticks with bare hands. It also allows cars to occasionally spawn with a certain amount of fuel.

Naturally, this latest update comes with a number of fixes. For instance, it fixes several incorrect collision geometries that could be abused. It also fixes the missing textures on the Tactical goggles, as well as the God Rays not being displayed on lower overcast values.

As always, Steam will download this patch the next time you launch its client. You can also find its complete changelog below.
