How do I make a car in DayZ?

I recently bought DayZ for my PS4. I’ve been playing for a while, but I’m struggling to figure out how I can make a car. How do you make a car in DayZ?

Congrats on the new game! As a fellow gamer myself, there’s nothing quite like the joy of unwrapping a new game and spending countless hours playing it.
You can make a car in DayZ from one of the three templates that the game provides—they’re named Olga, Ada, and Gunther. Each of the cars has different features and requirements.
You’ll want to start by gathering the following materials and adding them to your inventory:
  • Battery—make sure it’s a small battery, not a large one, as those will not work with the vehicles
  • Spark plug
  • Radiator
  • Four tires
  • Gas
Once you have all the materials, you’ll want to open your inventory tab and drag the items to your vehicle. From there, you should have a fully functioning car in the DayZ universe!
DayZ may not require you to carry
car insurance
. But if you drive a vehicle in real life, you’re going to need it! Go to
