NV Goggles

Night Vision Goggles are extremely rare tools that are used to see more effectively in the dark. They take up their own slot and can be used by pressing 'N'. Weapons that use iron sights or otherwise lack scopes are fully compatible, but the only scoped weapons they can be used with are the DMR and the M16A4 ACOG.

Because Night Vision Goggles work by amplifying ambient starlight, sudden bursts of light (such as flares or chemlights) can render their users temporarily blind. It is possible to use them in low-to-mid light conditions (such as near sunrise or by flares), but their users must wait for their eyes to adjust upon both donning and removing the goggles.

Night Vision Goggles can be found at either the barracks at the northwest airfield, or randomly in a Helicopter Crash. The pilot zombies that are unique to helicopter crashes have a very small chance of carrying them as well.

Makes raiding stuff at night easy. Recommend using these with a DMR for scope compatibility.

I found 3 in a helicopter crash Both the pilots carry them and the drop on the ground. Great for raiding the airfield you can see the unfriendly's before they see you.

Fact : When you get these , go onto night server only , you'll meet little resistance , and chances are , the loot will be touched

As far as scoped and magnified weapons go, the NVG's only seem to work with the DMR. Other optics are fine ie on the M4 CCO etc.

It is very tricky using the map on this website most of the spawns leave out some small items that make a difference to looters such as the NV goggles i found one in a hangar the other day (doubt someone was dumb enough to drop it) but it is still pretty reliable and the NV goggles were a godsend considering my trippy brightness on the monitor (I may have just gotten lucky)

Hello, thank you for the information but what is your source please ?

Where did you found this information ?

Sorry for my english :)

These are no longer found in the barracks. They can only be found in helicopter crashes. Not sure about the pilots.

I'm lucky and somewhere in the world someone is raging. I was leaving the northeast airfield and finished looting the market in Krasnostav nearby. I went south into the woods and came on someones tent. Considering it was near a road and easily visible i figured it'd be empty or just have a couple things in it. Had two assault rifles, several DMR mags, mags for helicopter weapons, car parts, and a pair of NVG's! Whoever they belonged to probably took them off and left them in the tent so as not to risk dying with them on (or they were a spare pair). Either way, they're mine now, and now night servers are easy! :)

My day started off bad when I found this... I got killed with some good stuff but I decided to play on, so I spawned walked down the street and saw 5 repaired vehicles on the street... I first thought it was a trap but when a drove away with the atv nothing happened. Later on I drove along the shore (I know not very smart) and found a box with an m24 and 10 units of ammo for it. I decided to go to Cherno and snipe people, so I went up that big industrial building and saw 5-6 dead players on one spot again I first thought it was a trap but nothing happened. So I looted them and got a coyote backpack nv googles a gps and other awesome stuff. If your one of the first one reading this go there, still nv and snipers there... Server: De371. Let's see if you make it before server restart! It's worth it...
