The Bus found in DayZ Origins
|On-road Speed:||70 KM/H|
|Off-road Speed:||28 KM/H|
The Bus in DayZ Origins has 24 seats, making it the largest passenger capacity vehicle available. However, it is both slow and has a very large turning radius which makes it hard to maneuver in Taviana's cramped streets where there are lots of obstacles. Additionally, it has a much smaller fuel tank compared to other large capacity vehicles.
Be aware that the glass areas on the Bus are very big and offer no protection for the driver or the passengers which makes it a prime ambush target. It is also the largest land vehicle in the game and it has a bright white and blue paint job which makes it hard to hide anywhere.
The Bus can be found in many locations on the map but it mainly spawns at bus stations.
To enter the gear storage on the bus you must sit in the drivers seat before climbing back (scrolling with your mouse and choose the option "sit in back") and hitting the inventory key (G is default). Another way to view the gear storage when sitting in the back is to go into your Map (you don't actually have to have a map), select units and a gear option will appear near the center of the screen. This can be used without going into the driver's seat first.
Always keep a couple of extra Jerry Cans in the gear storage on the Bus due to the small fuel tank.
Do not drive into known hot spots and ambush locations on the map without sending a scout ahead first.
BEWARE: The Bus only needs 4 out of 6 wheels to be functional.
