Beowulf Strategic Operations (Tactical Realism Community)

Recommended Posts


We are NOT the same BSO ran by the youtuber/streamer, Luetin09. They only recruit selectively, and you will have no success trying to get in touch through here.










Beowulf Strategic Operations is an established gaming community, focused mainly on the ArmA III platform. Formed in the way, way back of twenty-twelve, Beowulf has been through a string of ups and downs before finally rising from it's ashes once more in late 2015. Under the watchful eye of our Admin team, Beowulf strives to provide tactical, realistic fun in a way that is both enjoyable and engaging for everybody involved. We don't have any of that boring 'rank system' or 'chain-of-command' hierarchies in effect (Outside of an established host team); we don't expect you to call people 'Sir' or 'Sergeant', but we do expect a certain degree of Tactical Realism from our members.



Tactical Realism is a concept coined from Beowulf's inception; at it's essence, we believe that a realistic core to a mission shouldn't be stymied by all of the baggage and drama that comes with a MilSim community. Ranks are all well and good, but it's not the attitude we're aiming for in our sessions, and it's certainly not the type of organisation we want to spend 6+ hours a week playing with. At the end of the day, we strive to make sure that every player (whether they are someone just dropping by once, or a regular player) has an enjoyable time with us.




Our current repo runs to just over 20GB, and consists of the following addons;


- Advanced Combat Environment (ACE) 3

- ALiVE for ArmA III

- Advanced Combat Radio Environment (ACRE) 2

- RHS: United States Armed Forces 

- RHS: Armed Forces of the Russian Fed.

- CUP Terrains

- An array of other maps including; Podagorsk, Aliabad, Lingor, Duala, Panthera, Cinder City

- HLC Weapon Packs

- Theseus PMC

- RobertHammer Weapons

- 3CB British Pack

- A collection of in-house configs and scripts

After a Christmas break the new year brought a MASSIVE rework of our repo and  mission framework to go along with a burst of new players which allows me to say that Beowulf is back and bigger then ever! 

With a regular stream of brand new and exciting missions from our members, we continue to play diverse and challenging scenarios making for some truly memorable moments that will be passed down in the hall of fame for years to come. 


While continuing this high standard for our sessions, we now aim to focus on getting the Beowulf name out there. Bringing in new players to join in our community sessions both on the battlefield in ArmA and in the other games our members come together to enjoy.



Now with added UNITS page!

 WOW a fantastic couple of weeks for Beowulf!


 With a record number of applicants we have been slowly growing our player base and it is quickly making for some fantastic sessions! Our wider player base has opened up our mission makers ability to make some great missions utilising new and exciting assets such as light armour and fast air. Creating some intense scenarios with heart pumping fire fights and cinematic moments Michael Bay would be proud of!


 This week we launched some updates to our mod preset fixing a few bugs and bringing us in line with the release versions of big mods such as ACE and ALiVE. It was also a heavy focus for some new custom factions to be delivered to allow our mission makers to get to work continuing to deliver new exciting missions for every single session.


 Looking forward, we are now having to look at increasing our amount of weekly sessions to keep up with the demand for more ArmA!?! To try and stop our mission makers from having a heart attack from this increased demand, we are looking at delivering a top secret ALiVE project to allow for one night a week to be dedicated to a persistent story driven campaign... more details on that in the coming weeks!


If you hadn't spotted it on Reddit, our resident propaganda expert Sambrak launched a new video from one of our recent missions on Lingor titled OP Urban Devil where we were organised into an SF task force to find and rescue a hostage being held by local rebels.


 To get involved with missions like Urban Devil and many more visit Beowulfso.com and put your application in!


Walker, OUT

Another great couple of weeks for Beowulf, to the point where I forgot to post here?!

We have just pushed another update to bring us in line with our bigger mods such as ACE and ALiVE as well as a couple other bits.
The great news is we managed this update with 90% of our members using our in-house application "BSU"
We also have some great new vids from one of our latest members BennySouthSt. Check out one of his recordings of a mission below.





If you think you're up to it, fill out an application at beowulfso.com and come get stick in!

Benny has made us this great little vid as just a snapshot of what we do at Beowulf (The captures were taken from a single week of missions!)



Just to give a run down on some of the missions featured in his video (in no particular order)


 COOP: Grad-tastic - ChDKZ insurgents fight their way to a CDF artillery base where they turn the weapons on their former owners.


 COOP: OP: Silver Xeon - British SF move  in to capture an insurgent HVT.


 COOP: OP: Kamchatka - A Russian armoured push across Takistan clearing out insurgent strongholds. 


 TvT: Shadow of Podagorsk - An OpFor sniper team setup to intercept and eliminate a HVT while BluFor must deliver him to each zone keeping him alive.


 TvT: Storage Wars: EXTREME - Two teams fight over an Altis container yard.


 We are very proud of our ability to continue to make intense, fun and very different missions which we constantly are able to delivery on a per session basis. We are yet to have a session at Beowulf since Jan'16 where we have not had a brand new mission (usually more then one) on the agenda. You'll also notice we like to mix it up with Co-op and Team Vs Team missions. 



Below is another taste of a Firefight to take a town in "OP: Pan Sear" where special forces are inserted into rebel held territory to find and destroy several weapon caches.

We've been very busy at Beowulf pushing some updates to our preset, making some changes to our website... o and starting our first ALiVE campaign!


Operation: Blue Jackal is Beowulf's first full persistent campaign through the ALiVE framework. In Blue Jackal we will be taking on a full FIA insurgency spanning most of Altis. To aid in the flow and coordination we have created our own story, objectives and briefing that have been issued to our selected command team who will lead the community through the campaign.

 On the ground we will be playing the role of "Beowulf Security Operations" a PMC take on our own Beowulf name. We will be conducting regular COINOPS across the AO, as well as regularly organised operations to complete objectives set by command elements.

 For a taste of whats to come check out our full in-house generated briefing pack here.

 Along with ALiVE we have continued the rapid creation of our missions from various community members. A taste of some recent missions include;


COOP: OP Moskava - Russian MSV move in to crush a separatist movement in a neighbouring state, making use of Ground and air assets. 


COOP: OP Drug Duster - AAF Rangers deploy via airborne assault to the northern mountains targeting FIA drug operations in the area. As part of their mission they must find intel locating an FIA HVT in charge of these operations and capture him for interrogation.


COOP: Eviction Notice - Lingorian communists push back government forces after resisting an attack on El Villion. The communists will have to push through the jungle bringing huge amounts of firepower to bare against the retreating government troops trying to use air assets to escape the area.


TvT: Khe Sanh Panthera South - The RACS motorised troops push through layers of the SLA paratroopers held up in hastily erected defensive positions in the south.


COOP: Sandblast - Soviet mechanised troops move in to Aliabad province in an attempt to remove the Mujahideen from the Zarbed Valley. 




JSM has continued with his BSU mod syncing client with some great results. We have now officially dropped support for Swifty, and only support our own tool due to all of our existing and newcomer members finding it a lot easier and quicker to use then the community tools out there.
