DZ01 is the southern most area of the Dark Zone. The enemies encountered here are the weakest, starting at level 13. Mostly Rioters and Cleaners are encountered here, but they are mostly armored (purple veterans, or yellow Elites). Once a player reaches level 30, the enemies will also become level 30. The NPCs levels scale with the World Bracket of the player.
- Blockade - (Named enemies: Buckshot, Dropkick and Scrapper. Faction: Rioters) (Note this landmark cuts slightly into DZ02) This landmark has a Dark Zone Key chest.
- Abandoned Gas Station - (Does not have a named boss, but a few yellow Elites instead. Faction: Rioters)
- Two extraction zones
The subway system of DZ01 and DZ02 include a few patrols of cleaners, with a named boss (either an Incinerator or a Engineer) and other Elite enemies backing them up. It also includes two Dark zone key chests and various other smaller chests and medkits hidden in the tunnels. Only Cleaners spawn there, but Rioters and Rikers will chase you in from above.
Subway Bosses Edit
- Incinerator: A named incinerator enemy (O'Rouke or Maddock) will spawn in the deepest DZ01 subway station with the cars. The boss usually has 1 Engineer, 1 or 2 Shielders, and sometimes a few Sweepers for backup.
- Engineer: An Engineer (Claxton) spawns in the same exact location as the Incinerator. He is backed up by 1 Shielders, 2 Elite Snipers, and 1 or 2 Sweepers.
