Community DayZ Server

We have a 1PP Vanilla DayZ Community server that is now open to all.

The aim of this server is to offer a good mix of interaction, survival, PVP and super smooth server stability with working persistence.

Remember, Military zones and surrounding towns are always dangerous areas to be in so be on your guard and be ready for a fight. Outside of these areas, people without guns in their hands are not necessarily a threat so why not speak to them and see where it takes you.


HappyBombs – 1PP Vanilla | No Mods | Survival | PVP | Persistence


The server will restart every 8 hours to keep things fresh and stable. The restart times are 8am / 4pm / 12am BST (British Summer Time).


We run a 4 hour day and 30-45 minute night cycle.


There is no right or wrong way to play DayZ but with any community server, we ask that you abide by these 3 simple guidelines:

DayZ should be about natural, unscripted exploration. Meeting people, making those decisions whether to interact, attempt to be friendly or to not trust anyone.

Please don’t stream snipe other players. Evidence of this will result in warnings and then bans.

Please don’t use glitches or bugs to gain an advantage in any situation.

Don’t be a dick. Griefing, combat logging, racism, sexism, xenophobia and general dickishness will not be tolerated.

If you have evidence of any of the above being disregarded or ignored, please contact an admin via the HappyBombs Discord channel and we will deal with it.


Do I have to be a HappyBombs subscriber on Twitch to play on this server?

Of course not, the server is open to all members of the HB Community and also open the general DayZ community.

What is the population of the server?

We’ve set it to 60 players at the moment. Its a new server and there is no point having more until there is demand for it. That day we actually have queues, we can look at increasing it.

Do you have a night time phase on your server and how long does it last?

Night time is approximately 30-45 minutes.

Are there any rules on the server?

There are but its mainly about playing fair and not being a dick. Check out the server rules above before you play.

Can I KOS?

Whilst we actively encourage interaction of any kind, KOS is part of DayZ and we don’t want to change that. It creates stories, it creates divides, it creates revenge motives and sometimes you just want to shoot something or someone, right!?

Can I roleplay?

Of course you can! Not everyone is into it but why not give it a try, you might be surprised.

Anyway to team up with other people on the server?

There are a few team-chat voice channels in Discord and also a DayZ specific channel where you can jump in and see if anyone wants to join you.

Can I use Discord, TeamSpeak or any other voice chat app to chat to my friends in-game?

In-game voice chat is always better from a DayZ Experience point of view but yes, you can chat in private if you want.

Can I raid bases I find or attempt a base takeover?

Yes, you can. Its up to base owners to fortify their structures and defend their stashes. We just ask that you do this fairly, don’t use glitches and bugs or be that person that just plays on the server to just raid and annoy people.

Why has the server gone down?

If the server has gone down outside of the normal schedule restart times, its usually because of a Windows Update to the server. Best to check the Discord channel for any announcements.

Is there a Trader on the server?

No, we do not run a Trader mod on this server. Find people and trade with them naturally in-game – you’ll be surprised just how friendly and helpful some people can be.
