|~ In-game description|
The NBC Respirator is a type of mask in DayZ Standalone.
It protects against biological contaminants in the air as part of the NBC suit. To actively protect the wearer from Gas Poisoning in Contaminated Zones, it needs a Gas Mask Filter to function properly. Even without, it is still a very good face mask by itself due to low absorbency and high isolation.
It underwent massive changes in v1.14:
- it now narrows your field of vision slightly due to a "mask like" vignette
- wearing a gas mask slows down stamina regeneration (yet to prove if this is only in effect with a gas filter attached)
- a gas mask prevents the wearer from eating, drinking and taking pills
- The NBC Respirator is based on the British Avon S10 and FM12 respirator.
- The mask is referred to as the Airborne Mask in the game files, likely referring to its real world counterpart's usage by special forces.
