DayZ Standalone Overlay For Steam


DayZ Overlay is a setĀ of DayZ Standalone resources, optimised to work in Steam’s in-game browser. The idea is – you set your Steam web browser homepage to – and then whenever you’re in a sticky situation you can hit shift + tab, clicker ‘web browser’ and you instantly have all the DayZ resources at your fingertips. The overlay is styled specifically to fit in with Steam’s UI and it includes everything you ‘ll ever need:

  • iZurvive’s awesome DayZ Standalone Map
  • The DayZ Reddit Symptom and Treatment thread
  • Complete Blood Chart
  • Notepad for leaving notes
  • The DayZ Intel Weapon Database
  • The official DayZ Forums
  • The official Dayz Wiki
  • DayZ Bug Reports

Setting It Up

Setting up DayZ Overlay is simple – it only takes a couple of minutes. What you need to do is launch DayZ in the normal way. Once you’re in, bring up the Steam overlay with shift + tab and have a look at the bottom of the screen for the two buttons highlighted in blue and red below.



First, click on ‘settings’ and you’ll see a box to enter your ‘web browser homepage’. Type in

Next, click on ‘web browser’. That’s it! You’ll see all the DayZ resources instantly and you can now pull the resources up mid-game, whenever you need them!
