An Empty Soda Can found in DayZ
- "A aluminium can that once contained a tasty carbonated beverage, and now contains nothings."
- — In-game description
The Empty Soda Can is a trash item in DayZ that can be used as a projectile.
An Empty Soda Can is a throwable item found in almost all lootable locations. Selecting the can (or any throwable item) and "firing" it will throw it just as a grenade would be thrown. The distance is determined by the angle of throw and how long the fire key is held down.
The sound of a can hitting the ground or an object can attract the attention of near by zombies, who will investigate the noise. Cans could be used to draw zombies over to another player, or away from the player.
Throwing Tin Cans onto players or Zombies does very little amounts of damage. It is feasible to kill Zombies with several cans to the head for example inside a factory hall where the Zombies provide a slow moving target.
