Regular screwdriver. Can be gently inserted into a screw, or into somebody's jugular. — In-game description

Screwdriver is a tool that can also be used as a bladed weapon in DayZ Standalone. A rather poor weapon, the Screwdriver lacks both damage and range to make it a suitable choice for a primary melee weapon. Also lacking in functionality, only able to cut some restraints and open canned food, the Screwdriver is really only useful to freshly spawned players.
