— In-game description

The CZ 500 is a bolt-action sniper rifle that takes five 9.3×62mm cartridges in a CZ550 Mag. in DayZ.

The CZ 550 sports a wood grain finish and a high power fixed-zoom scope. The scope has adjustable zeroing from 100 meters to 800 meters, in increments of 100 meters. Zeroing is adjusted by pressing Zeroing Up and Zeroing Down (Default: PgUp and PgDn).

The CZ 550 deal's high blood damage of 8,000, has moderately-high recoil and, when fired, has an audible range to zombies of 180 meters from the shooter's position. The effective range of the rifle is up to 800 meters.[1]

The CZ 550 can kill a player in fewer than two shots to the body, or one shot to the head. The rifle can kill a zombie in one shot - multiple shots may be required to kill a viral zombie.

The CZ 500 is a common as a sniper rifle, but rare as a farm type loot spawn. The spawn chance is 1.41% at farm loot and 4.39% at deer stands.[2] This is equal to 141 out of 10,000 and 439 out of 10,000.

The CZ 550 is an excellent beginner sniper rifle as it is common, its ammo is common and its scope can be zeroed.
