How Do You Make Rope in Dayz

There are two main ways that players can craft rope in DayZ. The first method is using rags to craft the rope which is arguably the simplest and least risky way to get your hands on this useful item.

To get started, you'll need to get your hands on some rags, which can be cut (using a knife) from any fabric you want such as clothing or tablecloths. You should have enough to create two stacks of rags, each containing six rags at minimum. 

Then, in your inventory, place one stack of rags in your hand, drag the other stack into the "combine" box, and combine them, holding down the button until the animation finishes. This will drop the rope, which you can then pick up from the vicinity tab, and start using for ou rope-affiliated needs.

Using Guts to Craft Rope in DayZ

The second method of crafting rope in DayZ employs more, gruesome methods, as this uses guts to craft the rope. Whether you get the guts from an animal, another player, or a zombie wandering around, as long as you have one stack of guts and a knife you can start crafting some rope.

To start, open up your inventory and move the guts into your hands. Then select the knife and drag it over to your "Combine" box, and hit the combine button, holding it down until the improvised rope is made. This rope will look the same as generated rope, and you can take it from the Vicinity tab to use in other crafting recipes.

If the guts are lying on the floor you can also make the rope straight from there. Simply equip your knife in your hands, look at the guts on the ground, and use the "craft rope" command that pops up to create some rope while you're on the fly.

Players should note that there are two kinds of guts in the game, large and small guts. And rope can only be made from large guts from other survivors, large animals, and infected as we mentioned previously. 

Of course, you can always loot areas for rope, such as camping sites, residential areas, and many other places since it's not an uncommon item to find. But for right now, those are the easiest and quickest ways to make rope in DayZ.
