~ In-game description

The Combat Gas Mask is a staple of any police or military force. It was put to great use during the Korean and Vietnam wars, and functions to protect the user from poisonous gas; keep in mind however that this protection is intended to be a short-term solution, allowing the soldier to evacuate to non-toxic areas where he or she can be washed down and cleaned of any toxins. The mask is NOT meant to be a permanent breathing apparatus, and its efficiency drops dramatically after as little as 15 minutes of use.


  • The mask appears to be a Czech M10M Gas Mask.
  • The Gas Mask is currently one of the most resistant masks in DayZ due to its unique 30% resistance to bleeding (also see GP-5 Gas Mask), making it a attractive choice for those who often engage in Combat
  • Due to the Combat Gas Mask not having a Gas Mask Filter attachment slot, the Combat Gas Mask has a limited durability, shown by a white condition bar at the bottom of the item when held in your hands or stored in an inventory slot.
  • When the durability of the Combat Gas Mask's built in filter is almost depleted, your character's breathing will become harsher. If your character starts to take long, struggled breaths, you need to get to a safe spot where you can swap out the mask for a replacement.
  • Once the Combat Gas Mask has completely run out of durability, it will no longer be useful inside of static or dynamic gas zones, and you will quickly succumb to Gas Poisoning if a replacement Gas Mask is not equipped.
