Overview:

 

So back in 2009 a similar mod was released for Arma 2 by "Pistolfied" and I really enjoyed it.

AFAIK nobody made a mod like this for Arma 3, so I thought I'd share my own creation.

 
This mod will make all (I hope) rifles, carbines and machineguns fire nothing but tracer rounds.
Note that I have left out vehicle ammo, sniper rifles, and pistols. 
 
These are the magazines that are effected by this mod:
 
5.56mm 30rnd STANAG Mag 
6.5mm 30Rnd STANAG Mag
6.5mm 30Rnd Caseless Mag
6.5mm 100Rnd Belt Case
6.5mm 200Rnd Belt
6.5mm 200Rnd Belt Case
7.62(x51)mm 150Rnd Box
7.62(x54)mm 150Rnd Box
.338 NM 130Rnd Belt
9.3mm 150Rnd Belt
9mm 30Rnd Mag
9mm 16Rnd Mag
.45 ACP 30Rnd Vermin Mag
 
20161201: APEX mags added.
                  Added some mags I missed
 
Might have forgotten some but whatever  :P
 
This may not be realistic but it is a lot of fun!
 
Not tested in MP. Not really tested in SP either, just enjoyed.
The mod is signed though.
 
Changelog:
 
v0.1:
- first release
 
v0.2:
- Added APEX support
- Added some mags I had missed

Mod updated to v0.2 with APEX support, also RHS versions released! See first post :)

 

Many thanks VolvoJocke1337 for this mod! I also used to enjoy Pistolfied's tracers for Arma 2. :)

 

As a suggestion, would it be possible for a version that fires tracers every few rounds rather than every round? From memory this is how Pistolfied's mod worked. I think the last five rounds of a mag were all tracers though so that you knew when you were almost empty.

 

Also, any chance of a compatibility patch for NIArsenal by toadie2k?

Thank you for reporting this. I've updated the Steam Workshop version, so now pistols and SMG:s work again.

Hello, sorry for my ignorance but if I use this in a scenario I'm developing for the workshop will users automatically experience the tracer mod once they have downloaded my scenario or will they need the complete mod themselves? Thanks

Yes it should work, from what I understand you as an author of a scenario in Arma 3 workshop can set my mod as a dependency, which will make the Arma 3 launcher download my mod when people install your mission.
