The Gunter 2, known in-game as the Civilian Hatchback, is a vehicle in DayZ.

General[ | ]

The Gunter 2 is based on the VolksWagen Golf MKII. It has 4 doors, and comes in 3 colors: Blue, Red, and Black. It can be found anywhere on any map. Currently the fastest vehicle in the game, and has 5 gears, whereas most cars have 4. This is one of the most common cars along with the Sarka 120.

Performance[ | ]

The Gunter 2 is currently the fastest vehicle in Dayz Standalone as of Patch 1.16. It has 5 gears with very long gears getting it up to about 55km/h in 2nd gear.

However, it struggles with high road grades, as without any inertia the vehicle can fail to climb roads in certain areas and/or terrains.

The Gunter 2 is generally an enjoyable car to drive however it can be a little slippy around corners so slow down before turning.

Triphazard1 CAUTION: Vehicles are known to be buggy and 'fly off' on high-population servers.
