Guts is a Resource in DayZ Standalone.

WARNING! Guts are edible but eating them has a chance to make you sick.

They can be obtained by skinning and quartering an animal or other players with a Knife and even found on Infected as loot.

Guts spawn in TWO (2) variations:

  1. Small Guts - usually from smaller animals like Chickens.
  2. Guts - usually gutted from Player corpses and larger animals like Goats, Deer etc or found on Infected as loot.


  • Guts (larger version, not the Small Guts) can be crafted into Rope which is useful for early game crafting of Improvised Fishing Rod alongside the Bones gained from gutting corpses.
  • Guts, despite being edible with the chance of illness cannot be cooked as they will instantly go to Ruined state BUT the heated product can be kept in a player's pockets to provide warmth during rain or snow periods in-game.
