Make sure you don't get down with the sickness.

Day Z, the survival shooter from Bohemia Interactive, has landed on Xbox Game Pass and has reached a whole new audience – with hundreds of thousands of players hopping in for the first time.

As this is a survival game, your character can become ill. This will cause coughing and infection that causes your "Blood" meter to drop. That gives a chance to fall unconscious, so you're much better off keeping yourself fit and healthy.

Here's how to cure an infection.

DayZ: How to Cure an Infection

DayZ's infections require antibiotics to cure, but you can also do things like build a fire to keep your body temperature up.

If you contract sepsis, you'll also need antibiotics but after thirty minutes the infection can be passed on. You'll lose three Blood every second. To prevent bleeding, you'll need Sepsis Bandages, a fairly uncommon item.
