I was watching the a live stream of someone playing DayZ while he was going back to his tent and it showed a bunch of forbidden item such as the M24 Desert and AS50 TWS.

I could not see the server or his nick name since he hid it on the stream. However, I do know the location of his stash:

  • 103 117 and the time was 7/17/12 15:00±5hours.

(The tent area was in the water located at Topolka Dam)

There were also some phenomena nearby that I saw in the video

  • In the north side of Elecktro, there was a forest fire which set up 60~120m height of black smoke.

Is this sufficient information to report or locate the cheater?

Your information is not sufficient to report the player because you don't know the server name or address. The guidelines for reporting cheaters are posted in a sticky on the DayZ forums. If you can gather the minimum required info, you can report the cheater in the Cheat Reporting section of those forums.

Required Information:

  • Server where cheating occurred.
  • Time that it happened including your timezone.
  • What happened during the incident.


  • Video proof
  • Pictures

You can report cheaters by using the official community forums: Cheat Reporting - Day Z Forums

EDIT: Sorry, I didn't see the end of the question, I do not know if this is sufficient evidence to report the cheater, just post a thread and see what they say. I personally do not play this mod, so I wouldn't know myself. All I know is that this game suffers greatly from cheaters.
