Want to kill as many players as possible? You choose your own priorities. Having a co-op mode where you only kill hordes of zombies would be stupid. There are already plenty of games that do that, like Left 4 Dead or Killing Floor. DayZ's open-ended gameplay is what makes it unique. Your interactions with other players and the general sense of paranoia and distrust are essential to the experience and zombie fiction in general.
I understand all of that but I still say that Arma is a piss poor game to be used for PvP, maybe Arma III will be better. Arma is more about PvE, if the missions were setup properly it would be 10x better than left 4 dead, or killing floor.
