This page contains information about the mod version of DayZ. Standalone information is available here.


The UAZ in DayZ is a Russian made UAZ-469, a military AWD jeep used by Soviet and other Warsaw Pact military forces during the cold war. There are two variants of the UAZ in the game, one is a military variant in green, and the other is a civilian version in red. It is also one of the most versatile vehicles in DayZ since it can keep decent speeds both on and off road while transporting a good sized team of players and their gear.

When it comes to being undetected it is relatively loud and it´s probably one of the easiest cars to hide due to it´s relatively small size and green paint job (unless you have the red one). The UAZ handles quite well and is easy to drive due to it being AWD and compact in size. Be aware that these qualities makes the UAZ a very desirable vehicle among players and that many will try to shoot you or steal it to get it.

Usage tips

  • Suitable as a mission vehichle for a team of up to 7 players.
  • Consider leaving one player guarding the car when leaving it near known hot spots due to its desirability.
  • Be wary of trash piles in the road at speed, the UAZ is easily flipped if one runs over small objects at speed.
  • The UAZ is also a great raiding vehicle due to its speed, seating, and how commonly found it is.


To fully repair a UAZ, the following parts are required:

There appear to be 2 different UAZs. A green one and a red one. The red one looks like a normal car, while the green UAZ looks like a military jeep. I would upload a screenshot of the red one I found, however it was stolen while I was offline.

Edit: I found another red one! Going to take some pictures once it's daytime.

To anyone who found a a car labelled UAZ (red), it is NOT a UAZ it is actually a Lada.

There are 2 different UAZ's there is UAZ(Red) and the UAZ which is a military type. red has a top speed of above 100 Kph and is really slow offroad, while the military has a top speed of 86 and is quite fast offroad, my clan currently owns both of them and other vehicles and will be adding the missing information on here.

I actually have one of these on a Private Hive's pretty badass but the gear slots are a bit small to me...

Does only one type of UAZ spawn per server? Because so far, the only type of UAZ I have been able to find is the Red UAZ.

The UAZ is also found in Lingor, only there it is white with the word "UN" on the hood...

The UAZ is probably the best all round land vehicle in DayZ. It does well at all areas but really not the best at anything except that it'´s probably the easiest car to hide due to it'´s relatively small size and green paint job (unless you have the red one). It has decent on and off road speed, it'´s not that noisy, has decent gear space and have enough seats for a good sized team.

Has anyone actually found the mythical UAZ sunken in Black Lake north of Berezino? I've hit a couple of servers and every time nothing. I even found a flipped ATV once, but not a sign of the UAZ.

Has more than 4 seats, believe it to be 7, but I've only had 5 people in my UAZ at a time.
