The 20th DayzUnderground Territory and POI Map – October 2020
New groups emerge to fill the gaps while some get swallowed whole…
Some of our varied factions and groups that met the faction requirements to be recognized as official DUG factions, claim territories and have built points of interests for other survivors. Every two months, members can claim their territory or POI through the private DUG forum and share it with others if it’s substantiated. Here is the current map that will guide you across the server. You can also find it in the in-game tourist maps and stands.
Compared to the last map, there are changes in territory and again we have new groups appearing on the map. Thank you all for your unique additions to the DUG community!
Featured Groups and Factions
Please keep in mind that all of these territories and groups represent real people, there are no NPCs. You will probably not always find everyone just as you pass by or find that a POI was torn down. These territories often just show you where these groups are based out of or have ties with through their stories and lore. Do not expect to find everyone loitering and waiting for you just as you might happen to pass by.
Many more groups and official factions currently don’t claim territory and while active in-game, are not featured on the map.
Black Sheep – An official faction that helps passerby’s in Guglovo and defends their town against aggressors.
Chernarus National Front – A group made up of former civilians and soldiers of Chernarus, their goal is to cleanse the remnants of the country of both the infection, and those that have taken advantage of the chaos which the apocalypse brought.
Dark As Midnight – An official faction focused on keeping what’s left of the world in anarchy and doing whatever necessary to protect their haven of Gorka and the surrounding area.
The 506th – An official faction that has created the Western Free State and punishes those who would bring evil to their home.
The Black Cross – Through its strong network of volunteers, donors and partners, the Black Cross official faction aspire to turn compassion into action and provide care shelter and hope to everyone affected by disaster.
The Dugout – A neutral official faction that maintains a hub near Severograd where survivors can trade and interact with others.
Enclave – Once a small group now growing in size works to protect Novodmitrovsk and make it a safe haven for its new community. Coming to this town with a gun out might not be the brightest of ideas if they see you.
Islanders – Individuals first and foremost. They value their liberty or have it taken from you. They avoid the authority of others, resent restrictions, and challenge the status quo.
Northgard – A group consisting of civilians who roam the lands of Chernarus, gathering information on those who have done them wrong in the past. However, don’t take them as evil-hearted people. They continue to help those in need, without revealing their true identity.
Olixtown – A collective of people who maintain a free city with lockable apartments in southern Chernogorsk with no leaders, laws or judgement. Give respect to get respect.
Pavlovo Trade Union – They spend their days chatting with the passerby’s, trading goods both big and small, and can be found in Pavlovo or the surrounding areas helping and bridging relations with other survivors.
The Fireflies – The world at current is a mess with factions and groups warring constantly with disputes turning violent resulting in more and more deaths of the innocent. They strive to end this, by doing what they must to stop those who are aggressive without good reason, those who fight for revenge, and those who kill for fun.
The Rangers – Keen to use force to attain their overall goals, they achieve materialistic gain by stacking the deck to their advantage. There are no laws, no government and no rules left to tell anyone what to do; due to this apocalyptic setting Rangers take what they want and do not ask twice.
The Staroye Overlook – They seek to help survivors get off the coast with all their basics needs fulfilled. As such, and regardless of one’s allegiance, they provide one who seeks assistance with food, water and basics so they can be on their way in-land ready, safe and sound.
Torchwood – A group of religious fanatics, hellbent on saving the world and the people in it, ensuring that Chernarus is safe for all. They aggressively spread their religion of The Light, in hopes of converting the blind and saving the world by any means necessary.
Points of Interest
POIs are player-built locations that offer interesting meetings points or areas that are significant in the stories of people. They can be anything from bases that will be defended to open gathering places and trading posts. Some of those are excellent locations if you’re looking for player interactions! Though keep in mind, everyone is responsible for their own security.
Cherno Sauna – A survivor-built sauna made for others to relax and enjoys the sights and sounds of Chernogorsk during the apocalypse.
Graz Ant Farm – A place that aims to provide free farm food for people out of a lovely farm house kitchen.
Gorka – The home of Dark as Midnight. Find any map in game and it will tell you all you need to know – STAY OUT!
Kim’s Crackhouse – The Crackhouse is an unmannerly recreational drug store that is placed on Lacuna Street 696 in Olixtown and offers a big variety of drugs and other items. If you got the itch, they have got the fix.
Olixtown – Survivors have built up the remnants of downtown Chernogorsk into Olixtown, and as they put it, “a dirty old seaside town; a wretched hive of scum and villainy.”
PTU Trading Post – A town home to traders large and small, looking for anything they can get their hands on and sell back to the public at a good price.

Sam & Steve’s Folly Trail – All roads lead to Staroye. Find the trail and it will lead you to the Overlook, a community camp providing food and goods for survivors!
Storohz – This heavily fortified prison is home to the Islanders, but good luck getting there! The currents and tides make any swim a treacherous one, those who brave the swim are judged by the intentions they come with.
The Aid Station – A large fortification built at the school in Severograd made by the Black Cross faction, this point of interest is a place where people can find medical supplies and other forms of aid passing through the north.
The Dugout – Part store, part trading post, the Dugout is a camp north of Severograd where people can drop off items and get items in return.
The Guglovo – A base made by the Black Sheep faction on DUG that acts as a stopping point for people moving across the map looking for food or aid.
The Lollipop Tower – Home of the Carnival and its strange psychotic clowns. They see society, structure, and laws as the downfall of man and try to rewrite the world using fear while having a great time simultaneously. Each clown is their own individual, and all share the appreciation for their personal freedom while having close to no regard for the lives or freedom of others.
The People of Tulga – A group of farmers and herbalists who came together to create a space where people can hang out and get the help they need before continuing their journey.
The map making process and how to be on it
Every two months, community members come together to create a new territory map that shows the home turfs and points of interests of some of our groups and factions.
The process is quite simple, a thread is posted in our private member forum and any groups or collectives can claim territory or share their points of interest. The map team then votes on those claims based on requirements such as the amount of group members, their in-game and forum activity and what they add to the community and experience of other players.
Do you want to see your group or point of interest featured on the map? Show something unique, get involved with other players and join the community if you haven’t yet! Introduce your group through the forum and then later claim your territory in the next iteration.
We want to again thank everyone involved in this community created map, Abbie for designing the visuals, Rufus who helped write group descriptions as well as all players who are represented on it and add more unique aspects to DUG!
