Is Berzerk being transfered to ArmA II

Recommended Posts

Hi all

Does anyone know if Zaphod is transfering Berzerk to ArmA II?

Or will some one be making a similar mission.

Kind Regards walker

Ch_umpc missions look like Berzerk. But there isn't the interface with weapons and deploy map and there are too much vehicules.

Not sure if Zaphod is gonna do any maping for ArmA 2 because last time I talked to him he wasn´t very happy about the comunity... (few months ago maybe he changed his mind...) BUT if anybody does convert berzerk maps PLESASE convert the 1.23 version NOT the 2.0 version :D

Hi ])rStrangelove

Berzerk is the classic Capture and Hold (C&H) of ArmA

It is Player v Player (PvP) or more accurately Team v Team (TvT)

1) At the loby you choose, or the admin assigns you to, one of two sides

2) You start with Base Respawn (your only safe respawn).

3) You have a Dialogue from which to choose your basic player weapon loadout.

4) At the base there are several vehicles say:

a) 3 tanks

b) 3 IFV's

c) 2 Helicopters

e) A couple of Armored cars

f) An AA vehicle

(as the vehicles are destroyed in battle they respawn back at the base after some time)

5) You then make for one of several colour marked neutral geographic capture locations.

a) If your team can hold that location for about 30 seconds it switches to your side and your can use it for advance respawn.

b) The marker covering the area now changes to your teams colour as does a flag at that location, only your side can spawn at it while your side hold the location.

c) Each of these capture locations adds to your teams score, for every minute you are there.

d) Each captured location unlocks and spawns extra addons such as better vehicles, tanks, cannons and even jets which you can then use to capture more capture points.

6) Scattered Arround the mission are are ammo boxes at the capture locations and in other spots. These give you access to part though not all of the spawn weapon choice dialogue.

7) When you get killed:

a) you have the full weapon choice dialogue available to you and

b) There is a respawn punishment wait of about 30 to 60 seconds for getting killed,

c) Then there is a map which allows you click which ever of the capture locations your team has and you wish to respawn at.

d) Advance respawn locations are risky to respawn at. While you do respawn any where in a 150m to 200m area within the location camping snipers, and camping is not considered bad form in ArmA just good tactics, often cover these locations. That said counter sniper teams and cannons or auto grenade lauchers often cover the known camping spots.

e) You can also always choose to respawn safe back at your base, often useful to pick up a tank or some such if all others are in use.

8) If one side is loosing realy badly then that often unlocks special extra weapons for them to even it up

The winning team is the one with most points.

JIP has serious bugs to need to be taken care of first.

Good to hear Zaphod

My favourite C&H

And with the ability to play ArmA I as a MOD mean all the old favourites can transfered too.

Though I am looking forward to Berzerk on Chernarus and Utes maps most.

If you want to suggest own improvements (based on 2.0 beta 12), this might be the right time and place ...

One version with roughly same distance from base to town vs between towns to

have base a fair respawn pos.

Make an option / version to let units start in towns at game start to avoid the start rush.

Ability to deactivate client side the sounds/music (via radio).

Inf (+transport) - tank (+inf) - air (+inf // AA vehicles) only version.

Base zone protection system that deletes projectiles fired from inside or from outside into the zone.
