DayZ Livonia Water Decontamination
New, NormalPublic


A consistent issue with chlorine tabs not properly decontaminating water sources on all official servers.


Operating System
Windows 10
Steps To Reproduce
  1. Miraculously discover a plastic bottle.
  2. Drink the water in the bottle so your character doesn't die in the first 5 minutes of gameplay.
  3. Miraculously find a water source, such as a river or a stream, and refill the water bottle.
  4. If you miraculously found chlorine tablets to use to decontaminate water sources, use those to make the water in the plastic bottle safe.
  5. Drink the "decontaminated water" so your character doesn't die in the next 5 minutes of gameplay.
  6. Wait a few minutes and observe that your character begins vomiting after developing a stomach virus from the "decontaminated water."
  7. You die.
Additional Information

I understand that this is a newer DLC and there are bound to be issues that need to be corrected, but when someone follows the correct processes to ensure they survive in a game entirely built around the concept of survival you'd at least hope the basics work at all times. Cheers!

@straytrack Hi. After adding the chlorine tablet to the water, pause for 10-15 minutes for the water disinfection reaction. Is there a problem anyway?

Sounds like when you originally got the Plastic bottle there is a high chance freshly spawned ones will be infected I recommend you empty any bottle you found and refill it when you can
