DayZ is ostensibly about surviving a zombie apocalypse — but really, it is all about rotting food, running around in your underpants, and disinfectant spray … at least according to the Steam user reviews.

Developer Bohemia Interactive’s online survival game debuted on Steam’s Early Access program in December, and it has found a ton of success so far. The developer has sold over 900,000 copies of DayZ, according to its official website, and while the unconventional game is only in an early testing state, this isn’t stopping players from spending hours getting up to all sorts of bizarre acts.

Like what? Well, let’s just say that if you come across a man not wearing pants in DayZ, don’t insult the cleanliness of his undergarments.

Perhaps the quickest way to comprehend just how strange players behave in DayZ is to take a look at the numerous user reviews on Steam. Rock91 collected a bunch¬†on Reddit and posted them to the image-sharing site Imgur, and we’ve picked out some of the best. Check it out in our gallery below:
