The Fence is a player-built fortification in DayZ.

Structure[ | ]

Fences are modular player-built walls used in constructing or fortifying a base. Consisting of one or two base frames made of wood and one to two panel sections made from either wood or sheet metal. Fences can also be covered in a Camo Net for more concealment and can also have Barbed Wire mounted to one or both of the panel sections using Pliers.

Players can also construct platforms and stairs behind the fence wall, allowing sight over the wall without needing to leave the structure. Additionally, Fences can be modified with Metal Wire and Pliers to construct a Gate for entry and exit into a survivor's base. The Gate can also have a Combination Lock attached to stop wandering survivors and bandits from walking in.

Required Tools & Materials[ | ]

Below is the list of Equipment and Resources required to build a basic Fence with no optional attachments and sections.

Kit[ | ]

Tools[ | ]

Note: You will need one or the other of the Shovel and Pickaxe. The handsaw and hacksaw can be used to saw or make planks.

Resources & Materials[ | ]

At a minimum a Fence requires the following number of resources:

Construction[ | ]

Base[ | ]

Requires:

Once a location has been selected for the Fence and the Fence Kit has been deployed, attach the two wooden logs to the deployed Fence Kit. With a Shovel, Farming Hoe or Pickaxe equipped, the option to construct the Fence Base will become available.

Upper & Lower Frames[ | ]

Requires:

With the Fence Base constructed, attach the required amount of Planks and Nails to the fence, equip either a Hammer or Hatchet and the option to construct the frames will become available.

Upper & Lower Panels[ | ]

After the upper and/or lower frames have been built, the panels can be attached, completing the Fence. Each panel section can be constructed from either wood or metal but not both. However, both panel sections need not be constructed with the same material, allowing Survivors to mix and match the paneling to their liking.

Wood Paneling[ | ]

Requires:

To complete the Fence, attach the appropriate amount of Nails and Planks to the fence and begin construction with the Hammer or Hatchet in hand.

Metal Paneling[ | ]

Requires:

To complete the Fence, attach the appropriate amount of Nails and Sheet Metal to the fence and begin construction with the Hammer or Hatchet in hand.

Optional Sections[ | ]

Platform[ | ]

Requires:

To add an elevated platform to a Fence simply attach the required Planks and Nails to the fence, equip the Hammer or Hatchet and the option will become available. The platform only requires the fence base to be built in order to be constructed.

Note: Fences with a Platform cannot be made into Gates, and vice-versa.

Stairs[ | ]

Requires:

With a platform built, stairs can be built on the left and/or right sides to allow access to the platform. Attach the required Planks and Nails to the fence, equip the Hammer or Hatchet and the option to construct the stairs will become available.

Modifications[ | ]

Gate[ | ]

To upgrade the Fence to be an openable Gate, it requires a Metal Wire and Pliers.

The gate can be locked using a Combination Lock.

Attachments[ | ]

Camo Net[ | ]

A Camo Net can be placed on the Fence to add camouflage.

Barbed Wire[ | ]

Up to two Barbed Wire reels can be placed on the Fence and constructed by looking at the barbed wire reels with Pliers equipped. These will damage and cut any Survivors attempting to get close.

Destruction[ | ]

The following tools can be used to dismantle the Fence and its components from the inside.

Explosives, weapons and tools can be used to damage the Fence and its parts. This is one of the primary methods for base raiding.

Trivia[ | ]

  • Early concept art of survivor bases depicting fences showed Xmas Lights being able to be attached. This was also functional in early working versions, however at some point this was removed before final release.
