An assortment of torn rags. — In-game description


Rags are a type of equipment in DayZ. They can be used to stop bleeding, used as a gag and are used as a common crafting material.

General[ | ]

To tear clothing into rags: put an item of clothing in your hands, then drag a knife or other suitable tool over top of the clothing item and select the "Craft Rags" option. Tearing a piece of clothing into rags will destroy it in the process, and creates anywhere from 1 to 6 rags depending upon the item you begin with. Clothing must be unequipped or on the ground and empty in order to tear it into rags.

The tools that can be used to craft rags: knives, machetes, Sickle, saws, axes, Sword, Screwdriver, Pickaxe, bayonets, shovels and Farming Hoe.

Bandaging Bleeding Wounds[ | ]

A player may use rags either on themselves or on another player. To apply rags to yourself take the rag to your hands, and select the "treat my wound" action.

Multiple concurrent wounds can be bandaged by holding down the action key until all wounds are treated or all rags in the stack are used.

Bandaging takes approximately ten seconds, during which the player is vulnerable to attack and cannot move without "breaking" the animation which means having to start all over again.

Note: Make sure the rag is disinfected using Disinfectant Spray, Alcoholic Tincture or Iodine Tincture, otherwise the player has a 15% chance to obtain a Wound Infection.

Bandaging Others[ | ]

To bandage another player, one must be within range for the option "Treat person's wounds" to appear.


Gagging a Player[ | ]

The player can gag themselves if they are holding just one rag in their hands. You can split a stack of objects by right clicking on them. You can also gag other players once they have been subdued or have surrendered.

The effect of gagging a player is that their speech becomes muffled, much like it would with a gas mask or motorcycle helmet.

Note: Gagging yourself will not help to muffle your coughs from influenza or laughing from Brain Prion Disease.
