Novy Sobor Spawn
New, WishlistPublic


After respawning, I spawned in Novy Sobor. Keep in mind this is a bug, not a real spawn point. This spawn also gives an incredible and unfair advantage to anyone who happens to spawn in Novy. Even though some of you would rather this be left untouched, it should be fixed.


Legacy ID
Steps To Reproduce

Respawn and you may get sent to Novy.

Agreed I've seen this a couple of times and heard it from others on my teamspeak a lot too.

The Novy spawn was always a bug in DayZ Mod, the point it spawned you at was the very centre of the map (inside a house). In DayZSA it seems this point has moved slightly but its always the same spot when you get it.

In DayZ mod Novy spawns were always related to server performance I assume something similar is occuring in the Standalone currently.

Happened to me aswell. I didn't notice something special and couldn't find how to reproduce it.

Never happened to me but happened to pretty much all my friends so far, upvoted.

I know some people would rather this be left alone, but it is a bug and it needs to be fixed.

Yeah people are downvoting because they either like it or they think its intended.

It's still a bug and it needs to be fixed, if you want spawns further north thats a feature request. The bug tracker is not a reddit post, this is a legitimate bug.

Happened to me today, got killed the moment i spawned, no bullets, no indication of attack, respawned in Novy.

spawned there 2 times today

I wouldn't say that this is a HUGE advantage, since the mmilitary base was removed from Sobor
but still it should be fixed

@shimmler, True, but then you don't have to deal with players as much (if at all) as you would having spawned on the coast. And, the journey to the north west airfield is more than cut in half for you.

I have been able to replicate this bug very easily.

When your player is dead, hit the respawn button. When the game displays please wait, click respawn again. Then exit the server before you respawn and join back in and you will respawn at novy.

I haven't had this happen yet, but if others are saying its happening, then it needs to be fixed. Upvoted.

Novy and Starry are useless, the good gear lies to the west. Balota, Airfield, cherno, military base.


Agree, besides there's even a safer military spawn area much safer than airport justa bout 1.5 kilometers from Stary. A military base with 2 barracks and one 2-story military building.

Yep have had it happen twice

You should spawn randomly all over the map. Why make life easy for spawn campers?

Finding a rifle earlier than somebody does NOT make you safe on DayZ. So yes, it might be a "bug" and I agree it should be fixed, but it's not that big of a deal tho.

We need more spawnpoints around the map like at Novy Sobor, would help to get Balota Airfield a little bit cleaner :D

Downvoted, it is intended confirmed by Hicks.

Was also in the Mod already. Should be there

Was a bug in the mod and its a bug in the standalone hicks said its rare, he didnt say its not a bug

In my experience, this spawn is incredibly rare and is probably not so bad when the coast is crawling with bandits. I doubt that this is a bug to be honest

This spawn location was also in the original Mod as a rare spawn point. so....yeah I believe it's intended.

pretty sure novy spawn is intended
