Military Sniper Mildot Holdover Technique in Arma 3 (with ACE3 mod) for Multiple Target Engagement

Recommended Posts

Dear Arma community,
I'd like to share some very useful military sniper technique called "Mildot Holdover Technique" which you can use in Arma 3 (especially with ACE3 mod). This technique has been used by military snipers (especially USMC, Navy Seal, & US Army) to engage multiple targets very fast. What those snipers really do in battlefield when engaging a target is actually use their mildot reticle to compensate for bullet drop & wind drift. They're using the mildot to hold over the target for the bullet drop & wind drift. They rarely dial in on their scope adjutment turret coz it takes too long :( So they always zero their gun at a certain distance (usually the distance where most targets show up) & use the mildot to hold for bullet drop & wind drift at other distances.
For instance, you zero your gun at 400 m. The target is at 800 m. Let's say you still got bullet drop 5 Mils down & your wind drift is 3 Mils to the left. You don't dial your scope adjutment turret again. Instead, you use your mildot reticle to hold 5 Mils above the target and hold 3 Mils to the right of the target.


To demonstrate it, i show you the picture & some of my sniper videos i just made. Those videos ain't about to show off my skill or anything (i'm a noob actually lol). I just wanna show you guys how to do the "Mildot Holdover Technique" in Arma 3 (even with ACE3).I put all the loadout specs & ballistics analysis in the video description.


Sorry for not narrating the videos coz i don't got time :(

that's pretty much all the Mildot Holdover used by military snipers :)



So do you prefer holding with reticle or dialing the scope adjustment?

what's your favorite mildot holdover (& what's your loadout)? :D


Please share it here in this thread ;)

If you got some time, perhaps you can check out my youtube channel --> https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCx6ZpuRmlNlAhAgha9zthbw
it's a non-commercial channel exclusively all about Arma 3 ACE3 Sniper videos.
i always put all the complete weapon specification & ballistics analysis in the video description.
i hope you all can learn long range precision shooting from that channel.


Good shooting!!!

I need holdovers for the vanilla stock weapons from ARMA3 with the vanilla stock scopes. I've been working on the Lynx APDS with LRPS but I'm having  a hard time. Do you know of anything? Thanks a lot!
