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. A rather bad weapon, the Screwdriver lacks both damage and range which makes it a poor 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.
