"A cracked empty whiskey bottle that no longer contains anything."
— In-game description

An Empty Whiskey Bottle is trash item in DayZ that can be used as a projectile.

An Empty Whiskey Bottle is a throwable item found in almost all lootable locations. Selecting the bottle (or any throwable item) and "firing" will throw it just as one would throw a grenade, with distance determined by angle of throw and how long the fire key is held down.

The sound of a thrown bottle breaking will attract the attention of nearby zombies, who will investigate the noise. Bottles can thus be used when surrounded by zombies to create an escape route. They can also be used to break hospital windows or distract other Survivors. If thrown at Survivors, bottles may break bones.

Throwing Empty Whiskey Bottles or other similar objects at players or Zombies does very little amounts of damage. It is feasible to kill Zombies with several hits to the head for example inside a factory hall where the Zombies provide a slow moving target.
