AI and Bipods

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Just curious really - I may have missed the relevant thread (I did have a good look, promise!) - but does anyone know if AI can deploy the lovely new bipods? Couldn't find any documentation for bipods in the scripting section either - I'm guessing it hasn't been published yet, perhaps? Be interesting to know if we could set up static units, with bipods deployed; could be handy for AI snipers etc. :D

That's a clear no, see: http://feedback.arma3.com/view.php?id=23842.

...at least with respect to AI deploying their stuff automatically.

Manual/forced deployment per script could still be a possibility though.

But then again, that's probably not a high priority.

Been asking this myself. At least scripting commands to force a deployment would be nice. But the question remains if there is any use for the AI to deploy or rest or if they don't suffer the same recoil / sway penalties players do.

Even if this wouldn't affect SP/MP performance at all, it's still a bother to integrate and make.

Ok chaps! Thanks for the feedback! :D Just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing out on any cool stuff! Not that AI bipods would bring much new to SP / MP dynamics! Thanks again!

Well, it would certainly add some value, even if only for the visuals/cosmetics (and maybe a less exposed AI-body to shoot at). A good illusion can still do wonders, especially in games. I mean... in the end, the game itself is nothing but one hell of an illusion. :803:

But I guess we can all agree that the current player-only implementation is absolutely fine for the time being, and that there are way more important things to improve upon first.

@Ruebe - well said, mate! Spot on - player-only implementation is more than enough for now! :D

Accuracy? Maybe, maybe not so much, can't tell.

But what they certainly affect is the distance they're comfortable to attack targets (see config, min-, mid-, max-Range for single_close_optics1, single_medium_optics1 and single_far_optics2). Also the fire rate seems to be affected (slower with larger distance/better scopes).

Here have an example:
