Why Rotate Your Items in DayZ
As mentioned earlier in the guide managing your inventory is key in DayZ. From holding important items for healing, weapons for defence or materials for crafting. A part of your inventory is using the different containers available to you as well.
Containers are different places to store your items and materials. These include your bag, shirt, hoodie, jeans, etc. Each will have a different amount of space available so try them.
