I created this after someone posted a low rest image of key bindings for dayz over on Reddit. Someone suggested I post these here for new players.

Let me know if I need to change or update anything :)

Nice work mate !
Maybe add the Chat communication keys aswell and this will answer future questions :)
Also remember that QWERTZ Keyboards open the Chat with "-", while the rest (?) opens it with "/" .
This is a quite impotant point, i have a QWERTZ keyboard, but my Arma controls say that chat can be opened with "/" which does not do anything, not sure whether its only me, but i am almost certain that this is a common issue .

I assigned '1st/3rd Person' to my Mouse Button 4 and 'Freelook' to Mouse Button 5, I thoroughly recommend doing it.

Somebody steals from me, I cut off his hands. He offends me, I cut out his tongue. He rises against me, I cut off his head, stick it on a pike, raise it high up so all on the streets can see. That's what preserves the order of things. Fear.

The spacebar is a nice key to map something to aswell in arma singleplayer you mostly use it for interacting with your AI squad, something you won't be needing to do in DayZ
