Not to be confused with Black Mountain.
The Black Mountains are a fictional range of mountains clustered above Chernarus on the shared northern border with the Russian Federation. They're seen in-game via the 3d skybox, and is used as a navigational marker to guide lost players.

General[]

The Black Mountains were originally seen in Arma 2 as a background skybox texture, but were removed in DayZ Standalone at an unspecified date prior to its early access release in late 2013. On August 1st, the first content patch for version 0.63.147957 was released[1], and the long removed skybox texture was brought back by senior level designer Adam Franců. The exact texture seen in Arma 2 was reused in the current version of DayZ, and will help players with navigation. The Black Mountains can be seen from any point on the map, and is easily visible when spawning next to the Green Sea. The silhouetted Black Mountains are located in the North-West direction, as it corresponds with the geographical location as seen on the factbook map of Chernarus.
