WeaponSights Zoom for IFA3
This is a tiny addon for IFA3, what it does is automatically zoom your iron sights, so instead of you having to press
the button to zoom in so you can line up the sites on an enemy soldier, this will do it automatically.
Why this feature?
Because I always hated having to press an extra button to zoom into my sights, I also dont care for the sights of the guns
to be small as hell, and the problem with that is considering Arma3's sway, it makes it even harder to hit anything
when your trying to line up your sights, and then have to press a button to zoom in on top of it, so this addon
eliminates the need to press the key for zoom, so now you can focus on the target.

This works for all German, Russian, DLC (American) infantry weapons.
The weapons this works for include the following:

  • Rifles
  • Semi-Rifles
  • Sub-machine guns
  • Machine guns
  • Pistols
  • AT launchers - Panzerschreck, Panzerfaust & Bazooka

Download

IF Weapons Zoom for IFA3

This is a small addon for IFA3, what it does is automatically zoom your iron sites, so instead of you having to press

the button to zoom in so you can line up the sites on an enemy soldier, this will do it automatically.

Why this feature?

Because I always hated having to press an extra button to zoom into my sites, I also dont care for the sites of the guns

to be small as hell, and the problem with that is considering Arma3's drunken sway, it makes it even harder to hit anything

when your trying to line up your sites that are small, and then have to press a button to zoom in on top of it, so this addon

eliminates the zoom aspect of it, so now you can focus on the target.

I spent about 3 days, and 6 hours on this testing, researching, comparing configs, and racking my brains trying to get this to work.

This addon effects every infantry weapon for the Germans, Russians, and Americans (DLC), have not tested with the

Polish partisans, but it should work.

Wow this went unappreciated it seems, I always hated having to hold down tab to zoom my sights in whilst right clicking to aim down sights, this seems like it'll take a load off my fingers, and I greatly appreciate this, will be installing shortly. Do you happen to have made this compatible outside of IFA3?
