Extendable fence. One of the key elements of enclosing an area. — In-game description
The Fence is a player-built fortification in DayZ Standalone.
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
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:
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 or Pickaxe equipped, the option to construct the Fence Base will become available.
Upper & Lower Frames
Upper & Lower Panels
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.
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.
