Inspired by the real life story of Captain Phillips, Sniper At Sea is a mission about pirates that take the crew of a trawler hostage. You are a CTRG member tasked with para dropping into the AO, linking up with the USS Liberty to provide sniper support in the operation to recover the hostages. The pirates are refusing to release the trawler's captain, the situation is tense, you will be on standby if the situation deteriorates. Can you save the hostage before the pirates kill him?

  2. [MP] MIL_SniperHuntDM

    Download: MIL_SniperHuntDM - Dropbox/Steam Workshop/Armaholic Description: MIL_SniperHuntDM is a 2-4 player, sniper versus sniper deathmatch, playable on a number of different maps. Play for the long game and try to hunt down your enemies while keeping them guessing, or set up a short match through customisable lobby settings. This is built for a dedicated server with custom difficulty settings (listed below) in order to achieve the difficulty I was going for. It will work fairly well on a hosted server, but there was only so much I could do to force difficulty settings that I recommend to be used on a dedi. MIL_SniperHuntDM is intended to be difficult, and while taking your shot is still a critical part of the mission it is only a small part. I've tried to build this mission to require the player/s to put a lot more effort into some of the other aspects of "sniping" (navigation, judging distance, cam & concealment) while at the same time requiring them to out-think and out-hunt their enemies. MIL_SniperHuntDM has been ported across 18 maps (listed below). If there are any map requests let me know, as I made it fairly simple to set up on other maps. *** One MAJOR point to note - I wanted this to be all about the hunt. So, depending on the customisable settings used at the start of the mission this could just descend into a boring camp-fest (I've created adjustable player markers to alleviate this). The mates I tested this with didn't camp (most of the time). We "hunted" each other down, and it was fun with plenty of tension. Features: - Dedi/Hosted server support. - Player markers, adjustable through lobby params, to indicate enemy positions that: - Can have an inaccuracy applied to them. - Can increase in accuracy over time. - Optional weather settings, including snow in place of rain on arctic maps. - Credits to "IndeedPete & KokaKolaA3" for snow scripts. - Randomly assigned gear (equipment/weapons). - Arctic, desert or woodland. - Limited ammunition (2 x mags per weapon). - Randomly spawned quad bikes (small chance for Hummingbirds). - Custom kill/death & disconnect messages. - No rangefinding. - Spectator slot. - Easily adaptable to other maps. - Supports vanilla, RHS, CUP & Massi NATO SF and Russian Weapons. - Added ability for users without mod to still play by giving them vanilla weapons. - However, mod weapons won't be visible to non-mod players. - Support for a headless client. - Offload handling of vehicle spawns (handled by host on a hosted server). - More of a learning point for myself. Supported Terrains: //Small - Bukovina (CUP) - Nordkvingo, Norway - Proving Grounds (CUP) - Shapur (CUP) - Utes (CUP) - Winter Town //Medium - Bystrica (CUP) - Chernobyl Zone - Chernobyl Zone (Winter) - Gorgona - Kolgujev (CUP) - Santa Catalina Island - Southern Sahrani (CUP) - Stratis - Takistan Mountains (CUP) //Large - Esseker - G.O.S. Koplic //Extra Large - Bornholm, Denmark Dependencies: - Terrains for the non-vanilla maps. - For mod weapons, either: - RHS USAF - CUP Weapons - Massi US SF & Russian Weapons Install: Add all the SniperHunt_DM mission .pbo files to your MPMissions directory. Dedicated Server Difficulty Settings: - https://community.bistudio.com/wiki/server.armaprofile - Add/amend the custom difficulty class of your server profile. - https://community.bistudio.com/wiki/server.cfg - Add/amend the following line in your server config file. Media: As these we're WIP videos, there's a bunch of bugs. So, never mind the confusing markers....... First playable tests, 4 different sessions (9:47s): Second playable tests, 2 missions, 1 as spectator and 1 drawn out mission (10:53s): Third/final test, 1 mission with a different and fairly vocal group. Also the first time I get killed playing this (8:47s): Known Bugs: - Players used to sometimes spawn in rocks, and markers sometimes didn't function correctly, and vehicles sometimes exploded on spawn. I applied changes to fix all these issues and haven't seen any repeats of them since but if they do still occur, please let me know. If anyone finds any problems please let me know. Thank you.
  3. hello guys...i'm sorry to ask an apparently ridicolous question (because it is), but ARMA3 make every effort to make obvious things...impossible! to cut it short, i just wish to place a sniper and make him able to see and hit targets at ranges up to 1500m (with a 0.50 lynx rifle). it wasn't working, so i documented myself, and finally i made this script to try solve the problem: ...and it actually works....when its 12:00 in a sunny DAY ! at night or in rain it simply dont shoot! i'm getting mad about this thing that should already work in default ARMA3 without scripts! hope you can help me, thanks!
  4. Author: JTS Introduction: Highly scripted sniper mission. Feel like a real sniper Description: A few days ago, the terrorists managed to capture an convoy, which transported chemical weapons. It is necessary to stop them until they leave Tanoa. This morning, our intelligence sent us an information about the location of terrorists who have stolen these weapons. Two Special Forces troops were sent to the enemy territory to destroy these weapons Features: - Hardcore - Cutscene - 2 localizations: English & russian - Realistic color correction - Dead body detection system - Carefully selected beautiful places on Tanoa - Stealth Notes: - It is recommended to enable music in your game settings - Read briefing carefully - NOT COMPATIBLE WITH ACE and other mods, which change the behaviour of AI - No JIP (Join in progress) - Be sure you disable all not needed mods before you start the mission Credits & thanks: Urban (Mission testing) Screenshots: Requirements: - CBA A3 - Arma 3 Apex - Arma 3 Marksmen - Arma 3 Malden Download (Steam workshop) Download (Armaholic) Updated: 02.08.2018 *Fixed bug in Cutscene.sqf Updated: 20.05.2018 *Added difficulty option: Easy, Normal, Original (Affects the number of enemies and the distance of detection)
  5. Ghosts Wanted.Malden Brought to you by HelicopterEnthusiast and zigTtzag(zTt) When ghosts are desired, Savior Ghosts guns are fired! 1.] Hypothesis: Malden is held by CSAT forces. Forces which have drained the islands supplies. Whatever food or water they need for their army they confiscate from the locals. The locals are therefore starving. Starvation has caused them to want to rebel. Why have they not then? General Tahir Al Kazat is the answer. Tahir is stationed in Malden and is tasked to suppress the local population. He does so by torturing and slaughtering entire families! No more than a few days have passed when he even amputated all members of a family. That was a family of four that tried to take back their food that was confiscated So Tahir Al Kazat needs to be eliminated! A spy was recruited but following an act of treason he was captured. Now he is held somewhere around Le Pessagne and Vigny. A place where Tahir is also stationed. A perfect opportunity for Special Forces sniper team Savior Ghosts to act. A few hours ago you have parachuted without being detected near Vigny. You are to save the hostage and also eliminate Tahir Al Kazat. 2.] Important details: a)In MP when 2 players take part in the mission, one of you should be the SURVIVOR and the other should be the LEADER of team GHOSTS WANTED. b)Patrols, units placements along with ammo and weapon placements are all RANDOM. Due to that the mission has high replayability. c)The survivor may start in 3 different locations. To change that location you can teleport using an IV Stand located next to you when the mission starts. d)Each location has a RIDDLE to solve in order to get out. e)A Flanker is a heavily armed unit supporting the Sniper and Spotter. f)You should NOT DISABLE AI units that are in ANY team. Those units should exist for your convenience. g)The sniper team can activate HARDCORE mode where if the survivor dies it will be a mission failed. To activate there is a satellite dish with the appropriate action at the start of the mission. h)Respawn:Instant 3.]Requirements: 3.1]Players' skills: Serious combat and sniper abilities plus basic organizing skills. 3.2]Technical: a)Arma 3 Apex b)Marksmen DLC c)CBA - http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=18767 d)ASR AI3 - http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=24080 4.]Bugs: 4.1]Minor: None 4.2]Serious: None 5.]Installation: Just copy the pbo to your Arma 3 directory.

  7. I've been using .300WM from RHS with Advanced Ballistic for a while with the help of ballistic table and now decide to move on to ballistic computer. Unfortunately, there isn't a right ammo for me to choose with default .300WM setup, so I need to setup all the data by myself from the start. So far I've got the C1 data and other stuff, but I am now stuck on calculating drag and the computer never calculates the right data. Is there any sniper expert that can help me with setting up AtragMX?
  8. An unidentified sniper from the elite Joint Task Force 2 made the shot from a distance of 3,540 meters using a U.S.-made McMillan Tac-50 rifle and Hornady 750 gr Amax ammo chambered in .50 BMG cartridge! The Canadian Armed Forces confirmed Thursday that a member of Joint Task Force 2 made the record-breaking shot, killing an Islamic State insurgent during an operation in Iraq within the last month. The elite sniper was using a McMillan TAC-50 sniper rifle while firing from a high-rise during an operation that took place within the last month in Iraq. It took under 10 seconds to hit the target. “The shot in question actually disrupted a Daesh [Islamic State] attack on Iraqi security forces,” said a military source. “Instead of dropping a bomb that could potentially kill civilians in the area, it is a very precise application of force and because it was so far way, the bad guys didn’t have a clue what was happening.” The military source said the JTF2 operation fell within the strictures of the government’s advise and assist mission. “As stated multiple times in the past, members of the Canadian Special Operations Task Force do not accompany leading combat elements, but enable the Iraqi security forces who are in a tough combat mission,” the statement said. “This takes the form of advice in planning their operations and assistance to defeat Daesh through the use of coalition resources.” The kill was independently verified by video camera and other data. “Hard data on this. It isn’t an opinion. It isn’t an approximation. There is a second location with eyes on with all the right equipment to capture exactly what the shot was,” another military source said. A military insider told The Globe: “This is an incredible feat. It is a world record that might never be equalled.” The world record was previously held by British sniper Craig Harrison, who shot a Taliban gunner with a 338 Lapua Magnum rifle from 2,475 metres away in 2009. Previously, Canadian Corporal Rob Furlong had set the world record in 2002 at 2,430 metres when he gunned down an Afghan insurgent carrying an RPK machine gun during Operation Anaconda. Weeks before, Canadian Master Cpl. Arron Perry briefly held the world’s best sniper record after he fatally shot an insurgent at 2,310 metres during the same operation. Both soldiers were members of the 3rd Battalion Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry. U.S. Sergeant Bryan Kremer has the longest confirmed sniper kill shot by a U.S. soldier. He killed an Iraqi insurgent with his Barrett M82A1 rifle at 2,300 metres in 2004. JTF2 special forces are primarily tasked with counterterrorism, sniper operations and hostage rescue. Much of the information about this elite organization is classified and not commented on by the government. The unit’s snipers and members of Canadian Special Operations Regiment, who are carrying out the main task of training Kurdish forces, have been operating in tough conditions in Iraq. The Trudeau government pulled CF-18 fighter jets out of Iraq in 2016 but expanded the military mission, which will see the number of Canadian special forces trainers climb to 207 from 69 in an assist, train and advise mission. Canadian commandos are not supposed to be involved in direct combat, but are authorized to go up to the front lines on training missions with Kurdish Peshmerga fighters and to paint targets for coalition air strikes. For operational security reasons, sources would not reveal the names of the elite Canadian sniper and his partner, nor the location where the action took place. A sniper and his observer partner are often sent to remote and dangerous locations to hunt down insurgents while having to carry heavy equipment. Once they have located the target, snipers follow the same methodical approach before each shot. Breathe in, out, in, out, find a natural pause and then squeeze the trigger. Canada has a reputation among Western military forces for the quality of its snipers, despite the small size of the Canadian Armed Forces compared to the United States and Britain. “Canada has a world-class sniper system. It is not just a sniper. They work in pairs. There is an observer,” a military source said. “This is a skill set that only a very few people have.” The skill of the JTF2 sniper in taking down an insurgent at 3,540 metres required math skills, great eyesight, precision of ammunition and firearms, and superb training. “It is at the distance where you have to account not just for the ballistics of the round, which change over time and distance, you have to adjust for wind, and the wind would be swirling,” said a source with expertise in training Canadian special forces. “You have to adjust for him firing from a higher location downward and as the round drops you have to account for that. And from that distance you actually have to account for the curvature of the Earth.” Source: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/morning-mix/wp/2017/06/23/how-canadas-tiny-military-produced-deadly-record-breaking-snipers/?utm_term=.654ffa726d7c https://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/politics/canadian-elite-special-forces-sniper-sets-record-breaking-kill-shot-in-iraq/article35415651/ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Longest_recorded_sniper_kills Their Loadout Specs (Most Likely): https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B-evVfZruOxISVpISjB1Wld0OW8/view https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B-evVfZruOxIUi1UTkppQmF0Y00/view
  9. Hi I'm new to mission editing, but I wish to learn. I want to set a sniper to stay hidden and quiet, until comes in his view the designated VIP to kill together in a group of enemies, *kill him only*, then runs away unharmed. Other enemies must survive. I did try a lot of failed attempts using enable/disableAI, etc. but I have to give up: the sniper always attack other enemies before and after the VIP kill. Thank you.
  10. The road to Lolosalam is heavily mined. In order to restore access for our forces and build rapport with the local populace we have initiated a clearing operation. As an EOD specialist you will be attached to the lead element. Your job is to clear mines when requested to do so in order to facilitate mission fulfillment. Following this mission you will spend the night in the hills surrounding Lolosalam. In the morning you will RTB. Your callsign will be 'Keymaster'. You will be attached to a small fireteam codenamed 'Seeker'. Following you will be two rifle squads codenamed 'Reaper' and 'Slayer' respectively. Headquarters callsign is 'Crossroads'. This is a very basic mission with very little scripting, but it feels really good and almost like you're really on a deployment. You (and up to 3 of your friends) are EOD specialists in the United States Army and are attached to a fireteam which will lead and assist you. You need to move in a convoy of 3 MRAPs to the city of Lolosalam, securing the path along the way for more troops to follow in your wake. You ride in the front MRAP while the two MRAPs following behind you contain regular U.S. Army rifle squads to support the ultimate Lolosalam objective. You start at the base by an arsenal box. Get whatever gear you need out of there and then go to the front of the base and get in the lead MRAP. Don't worry about the fireteam leader bitching at you over the radio, they will never leave without you because they need you. All you have to do is concentrate on your job. The AI will (should) do their job without you having to babysit them. They will order you from time to time to defuse or destroy an IED blocking the path of the vehicles. After you're satisfied that the area is safe get back in the MRAP and the convoy will start moving again. If you ever come under fire or are attacked simply retreat to the MRAP and re-assess the situation. If you have to clear a path of IEDs while under fire it is easiest to simply detonate them with an explosive charge. The front MRAP has a decent supply of these explosive charges for dealing with the IEDs. Be careful because some IEDs are dual-charges and are designed to kill EOD. This usually takes the form of an anti-personnel landmine placed on top of or near the main IED. Use your eyeballs and be cautious. This mission starts out very slow and boring because not much happens at first. There are long periods of driving through the mountains looking at the sights and listening to music, but the Taliban are always watching you. If you look closely in the hills you may see them planning your future demise. As you get closer to Lolosalam, that dreaded city, more and more activity will start popping up. Your troops should deal with the enemy most of the time (as long as they can find/see them) and will even call in air support to help level the playing field. This all plays out over sidechat radio. To actually win the mission and end the game you just have to clear the way and let the two rifle squads do their patrol around Lolosalam. They will inform you of further developments. No Taliban can be in or near Lolosalam. You can make the Taliban retreat without having to hunt down and kill every last one. If they feel like they're getting fucked up they'll run into the hills to regroup, just like real life. This mission can be completed without taking a single U.S. casualty, but one wrong move can also instantly take the lives of about 40 people. Possible glitches/bugs you may encounter: - Vehicles falling off mountains - A-10's crashing during CAS runs - No lag during most of the mission but a lot of lag inside of Lolosalam Top two are caused because of the nature of the map Clafghan and its extremely steep slopes. I did everything I could to kind of code around it though, so it should be okay most of the time. The last one is simply in regards to your CPU and possibly RAM. I've had two people play this same exact mission and one had 120 FPS the whole game, the other had 120 FPS and then about 15 FPS once they entered Lolosalam. A dedicated server and headless clients will mitigate this issue. Let me know if you run into any problems. Note: Default view distance is 4500 for gameplay purposes. This seems to be okay for most people. If you need to turn it down the host or any logged in admin should be able to access the debug menu in-game in multiplayer. Simply type "setviewdistance NUMBER;setobjectviewdistance NUMBER" and hit global exec or something and it should change it for everyone. I'll add in an option later that lets you select the view distance at the beginning of the mission. Download: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1265397099
  11. Rebelism.Kunduz Brought to you by HelicopterEnthusiast and zigTtzag(zTt) A government official is about to ally with a rebel terrorist! Their meeting point? An enemy compound.. 1.] Hypothesis: Afghanistan is a country where foreign aided rebels may have raged war against the legal government but they have managed to occupy none but a few settlements. The problem is that one highly ranked government official, Sabid, has decided to betray his country for cash and ally with rebel leader Talah! If he does so, a lot of highly classified documents will be given to the rebels and all of the country’s military facilities will be compromised. It would be a huge blow to the government! So, what we need to do is simple. Intervene when the official meets with the rebel general and take both of them out. 2.] Important details: a)When 3 players are present you should be the GROUP LEADERS of all three squads. b)This mission has low replayability. Once and if you manage to complete the mission successfully you might never play it again. c)To open/close a door you will have to press the ALT key. Normal controls no longer work at the Kunduz map. d)You should NOT DISABLE AI units that are in your SQUAD. Those units should exist for your convenience. e)If you do not have the ASR AI 3 mod, it would be great to install it. It really enhances gameplay and takes Arma 3 to a whole new level. f)Respawn: Instant 3.]Requirements: 3.1]Players' skills: Serious combat and organizing abilities. 3.2]Technical: a)Arma 3 Apex b)CBA - http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=18767 c)ASR AI3 - http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=24080 d)Kunduz - http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=27882 e)HAFM - http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=28905 4.]Bugs: 4.1]Minor: None 4.2]Serious: None 5.]Installation: Just copy the pbo to your Arma 3 directory.

  12. Hello everyone, I've started this thread in the hopes of finding people in a similar situation as me. I am being insulted and degraded very frequently while playing Clash games (I only play these by the way) by people who say i play like shit and that my game style is just pure shitty and not cool for them. Let me get into more details... Basically to me Clash is the kind of gamemode that forces one to think and act accordingly to the situation and environment to succeed, nothing is keeping anyone from using any tactics to lead his team to victory, and by that i mean, anyone is free to run a mile away on top of a hill taking one shots on people if the map allows it, just like anyone is free to gear up with a heavy armor and run around with an LMG rushing people like a mad dog ! There is no gamestyle that anyone is forced to use ! But apparently this ideology doesn't apply to everyone as people have come bitching to me about the way i played and unfortunately for them seriously couldn't handle my playstyle... People were literally telling me "You fuckin bitch, you're a true piece a shit with your shitty gamestyle, it's fuckin boring and annoying to everyone, if it is to play this way than please go and play sniper elite !". Obviously this makes me laugh, i don't even bother replying to them as i don't see any reason in feeding an angry person who's truly raging because they couldn't counter you for the last 3 games. And this happens to me very often, either the people will insult me about how much of a fucker i am sniping them or they will tell me i'm a bitch and quit the game, leaving their whole team 1 person less against us. I'm also counting the amount of games where as soon as i join in, i will see the chat spammed with my name asking to be kicked because people know what's coming for them... Oh yes before i forget, something that came up quite a few times also, in some maps, objectives are somehow quite close to each other and lines of sight are very easily reached less than 15 seconds into the game to get a kill, people are telling me i'm spawn killing them, how am i spawn killing if one person has left the spawn, is busy running up the hill next to his objective and i kill him ? I mean, am i supposed to wait till the guy reaches the top of the hill to kill him so he's feeling better about that ?... People just don't seem to understand some principals of this game and are simply not familiarized enough to the gameplay Clash allows ! Of coarse if you run in the open on a straight line from your objective to the other you're very possibly going to get killed in less than a minute into the game start... So does Argo have rules on how one is forced to play ? Not allowed to snipe and or take shots from far away ? If it does please link me to these rules please ! https://snag.gy/oGd9Ig.jpg
  13. How far a shot can go in Arma 3? :\

    I'm always wondering how far a bullet can go in Arma 3. Is there any distance limit here in this simulator? :\ How far a bullet can go in Arma 3? Is it infinite? Therefore i went through some test to see the limit. And I'm pretty surprised that we can even go beyond 5000 m!!! :o So far the farthest i got is 5580 m....but it's pretty hard! >_< i could barely see the target :'( can we go even farther than that? what's the farthest distance you guys ever shot? :D Please share your experience here in this thread ;) Here's all my farthest shots in Arma 3. These videos ain't about to show off my skill or anything (i'm a noob actually lol). I just wanna show you guys how far the shot we can achieve 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 :( with Cheytac M200 Intervention rifle (in 408 CheyTac cartridge) & CheyTac 419 gr Lost River ammo with Cheytac M200 Intervention rifle (in 408 CheyTac cartridge) & CheyTac 419 gr Lost River ammo with Cheytac M200 Intervention rifle (in 375 CheyTac cartridge) & CheyTac 350 gr Lost River ammo with Cheytac M200 Intervention rifle (in 375 CheyTac cartridge) & CheyTac 350 gr Lost River ammo And yup i got tons of extreme long range shooting & sniping videos! Here's all the rest of my "Arma 3 longest shot" videos --> If you got some time, please 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! -Best Sniper Simulator-
  14. Dear Arma community, I'd like to share some of my knowledge regarding the ACE3 Sniper mechanism here. I know there's been lotta ACE3 Sniper Tutorial or Guide out there and you guys probably have been playing as ACE3 sniper for long time. But i just wanna highlight some important things that have always been forgotten by the players when they play as snipers which hinders the precision shots to be delivered. Yes, some players are still doing it wrong and their shots tend to fly too high or too low off the target :( #NoOffense Therefore, i'm trying to give you some easy instructional steps on how to play as a professional ACE3 Sniper and shoot like Real Military Sniper in Arma 3. If there's something needs to be added, changed, or fixed, just let me know. The steps written in Blue are the things the players most likely already know. And the steps written in Red are the things the players usually keep forgetting. Alright then, let's get it started now! To become a badass ACE3 Sniper, all you gotta do is follow these 12 Easy Steps: 1. Determine what kinda battle you’re going to engage & what type of shot you’re gonna take: a. MTE (Multiple Target Engagement) → this really requires fast shooting at many moving targets. “One shot one kill” shooting & Long Range Shot are not really a neccessity so Precision & Accuracy are usually less required. b. HVT (High Valuable Target) assasination → this really requires “one shot one kill” shooting! Mostly Medium & Long Range Shot are required. Precision & Accuracy are really required! c. HC (Hostage Crisis) → this really requires “one shot one kill” shooting! Short Range Shot are required (100 m below). Precision & Accuracy are really required! 2. After that, you conduct a Loadout Selection correspondig to the type of battle you’re gonna engage. While choosing a weapon, you must focus on its Precision Level (Shot Group/Shot Dispersion), Accuracy Level, Maximum Effective Range, Rate of Fire, & Damage (it must fit the type of shooting you’re gonna take). You have to do some thorough analysis on the rifles & bullet you're going to use! You always gotta measure rifle true performance by analyzing their shot-group (shot dispersion)! In Sniper World, Precision & Accuracy really matter a lot >_< Precision & Accuracy will greatly affect the Probability of Hit. You gotta understand what Precision & Accuracy really mean. The Precision & Accuracy of your loadout will totally affect your shots. There are 5 Types of Rifles (based on their Precision level) which you can choose: 1) Benchrest Rifle --> Shot Group / Shot Dispersion / Extreme Spread size is about 0 MoA - 0.23 MoA (0.00 inch - 0.23 inch at 100 yard) --> this rifle is extremely very accurate! :) it's good for HVT, HC, & MTE shot. 2) Precision Rifle --> Shot Group / Shot Dispersion / Extreme Spread size is about 0.25 MoA - 0.76 MoA (0.25 inch - 0.76 inch at 100 yard) --> this rifle is very accurate! :) it's good for HVT, HC, & MTE shot. 3) Sniper Rifle --> Shot Group / Shot Dispersion / Extreme Spread size is about 1.00 MoA - 1.53 MoA (1.00 inch - 1.53 inch at 100 yard) --> this rifle is accurate! :) it's good for HVT, HC, & MTE shot. 4) Designated Marksman Rifle --> Shot Group / Shot Dispersion / Extreme Spread size is about 1.78 MoA - 2.30 MoA (1.78 inch - 2.30 inch at 100 yard) --> this rifle is pretty accurate but not good for precision shooting! :( it's good only for MTE shot. 5) Assault/Battle Rifle --> Shot Group / Shot Dispersion / Extreme Spread size is bigger than 2.54 MoA (2.54 inch at 100 yard) --> this rifle is not accurate & not suitable for precision shooting at all! :( it's good only for MTE shot. Benchrest, Precision, & Sniper Rifles have small/tight shot dispersion which gives them much higher probability of hitting the target. Here's the example of Precision Rifle (with High Accuracy & Long Range Capability) in Arma 3: As you can see in those pictures above, M40A5 rifle (from Dagger mod) is insanely very accurate! At 100 m (its zero range), the 40-shot group size is very small. At 850 m (its max effective range), the 40-shot group size is still relatively small too. This is the type of rifle you wanna use to snipe in Arma 3! Here the things which are gonna affect your Loadout Precision & Accuracy (you gotta consider these while selecting a loadout): a. Cartridge & Caliber Selection - 5.56x45mm Nato (.224 cal) → for short range (100 – 400 m), has small damage (more like varmint hunting cartridge, it takes couple of shots to kill a man). It’s more like a battle-rifle cartridge but some soldiers use it as designated marksman cartridge. - 7.62x51mm Nato (.308 cal) → for medium range (500 – 800 m), has pretty huge damage (can kill a man in one shot). it fits the MTE, HVT, & HC shot. - 300 Win Mag (.308 cal) → for long range (900 – 1100 m), has huge damage. It fits MTE & HVT shot, but not the HC shot (coz it could hurt the hostage as well) - 338 Lapua Magnum (.338 cal), 50 BMG (.510 cal) → for extreme long range (1200 – 1600 m), has very huge damage. It fits HVT shot, but not the HC shot (coz it could hurt the hostage as well) and not the MTE shot (coz the cartridge is too heavy and the recoil is hard to control) - 375 CheyTac (.375 cal), 408 CheyTac (.408 cal) → for super extreme long range (beyond 1600 m), has very huge damage. It fits HVT shot, but not the HC shot (coz it could hurt the hostage as well) and not the MTE shot (coz the cartridge is too heavy and the recoil is hard to control) b. Action Selection - Bolt Action Rifle → it mostly offers more precision and accuracy but it definitely lacks of Speed & Rate of Fire. This obviously fits HVT & HC shot! - Semi-Auto Rifle → it definitely offers more Speed & Rate of Fire but it usually lacks of precision & accuracy. This obviously fits MTE shot! c. Barrel Selection, Stock Selection, Trigger Selection → choose whatever gives you more precision & accuracy (these actually don’t matter in Arma 3 coz they come within the rifle so you can’t really costumize them, but they really matter in real life!) d. Scope Selection → pick High-Power scope for HVT & HC shot, pick Low-Power scope for MTE shot! Always use scope with Miliradian-based reticle (dont use duplex reticle coz it’s useless)! Scope with Miliradian Ballistics reticle (like Horus reticle) is even better coz you can use it to Mildot Holdover all the time very easily (no need to dial the adjutment at all). RHS Mk4 M5 scope (from RHS mod) has Horus H58 reticle which allows you to do Mildot Holdover fast without ever needing to dial at all. And Make sure the scope is perfectly zeroed at 100 m! e. Attachment Selection → Bipod & Muzzle brake is a must for Precision & Accuracy! Bipod will steady your aim & Muzzle Brake will reduce the recoil. Suppressor is optional (use it when you need to stay stealthy). f. Ammo selection → choose some Match-grade ammo (which has high Ballistics Coefficient, optimal Muzzle Velocity, & awesome Ballistics performance)! Make sure you really got the right ammo magazine loaded in the rifle receiver! Coz sometimes players mistakenly load their rifles with the wrong/different ammo (still thinking it’s the right ammo), shoot it, & then the shot trajectory becomes completely different lol XD 3. Always equip yourself with AtragMX (a Ballistics Calculator), Kestrel 4500 (a pocket weather tracker), & Laser Range Finder → These 3 items are very important to calculate the firing solution! Without them, you guys will never be able to shoot long range accurately. So always carry these 3 items in your vest or in your backpack!!! 4. Zero your Rifle at 100 m and confirm the true 100 m Zero (make sure no offset at all!) → Spawn a target at 100 m and take couple of shots at it. You’ll see your shots are low or high. Yup ACE3 100 m zero is always 0.3 Mil – 0.5 Mil low or high (depends on your current loadout) so you gotta make an adjustment for your 100 m zero by dialing 0.3 Mil – 0.5 Mil up or down and then set it as a new 100 m zero. Do this through ACE Self-Intercation menu (Click & Hold the “Left CTRL + Windows” key, drag your mouse to the “Equipment”, then to the “Set Zero Adjustment”). You gotta make sure your 100 m zero is really spot on (not high or low at all)! After doing that, i guarantee your 100 m zero will become really spot on! Lotta ACE3 players don’t do this which always causes their shots to become low or high >_< Why you gotta zero your rifle at 100 m (not at other distance)? coz 100 m zero is easy to do & very stable! 5. Measure the True Muzzle Velocity using the “Chronograph” or calculate it yourself → in Arma 3 you can use a "Chronograph" by spawning a Steel Target right in front you (at 0 m), shoot it directly and it’ll tell your remaining velocity! You always gotta measure the True Muzzle Velocity coz your Muzzle Velocity is always changing corresponding to Powder Burn Rate, Temperature shift, and the Barrel Length. Plugging the wrong Muzzle Velocity into the AtragMX will always give you wrong firing solution & cause your shots to be low or high off the target >_< ----------------> Shooting my rifle directly in front of a Steel Target will inform me about its Remaining Velocity (which is the true Muzzle Velocity) ^_^ this "Chronograph" is actually an exclusive feature in "360 Degree Training Course" mod created by Ruthberg (the Author of ACE3 Advanced Ballistics). If you really can’t measure the true Muzzle Velocity with that “Chronograph”, then you gotta find it by asking the Weapon Mod Author or using the Config Viewer in Eden Editor! Config Viewer will help you find the Muzzle Velocity. But the Muzzle Velocity you see in the Config Viewer is actually the basic MV (it only applies at 21°C). Don't forget that MV is constantly changing corresponding to Air Temperature!!! So at other temperatures higher than 21°C, the MV will shift higher than the basic MV (+1.5 mps per 1°C shift). At other temperatures lower than 21°C, the MV will shift lower than the basic MV (-1.5 mps per 1°C shift). So you still gotta calculate the True Muzzle Velocity yourself with this table: Muzzle Velocity Shift -26.55 mps -25.47 mps -22.9 mps -20.12 mps -16.98 mps -12.8 mps -7.64 mps -1.53 mps + 6.0 mps +15.2 mps +26.2 mps Powder & Air Temperature -15 °C -10°C -5°C 0°C 5°C 10° C 15 °C 20 °C 25 °C 30 °C 35 °C Note: The basic air temperature for the basic MV of all Arma 3 weapon is always 21 °C! So when the air temp is cooler or hotter than 21 °C, your MV will always shifts (as described in the table above). The average MV change (due to the temperature) in ACE3 is +/- 1.5 mps per 1°C shift. And the average MV change (due to the Added Barrel Length) is +/- 10 mps per 1 inch added barrel length. For example: You’re shooting an M24 SWS rifle (24” barrel length) loaded with M118LR ammo. The mod author of that weapon or the Eden Config Viewer said the basic MV is 790 mps (it only applies at 21 °C). While your current air temp is 30 °C. It means your current MV will certainly be = 790 mps + 15.2 mps = 805.2 mps. And if you load the same M118LR ammo into the M40A5 rile (25” barrel length), your MV will be approximately = 805.2 mps + 10 mps = 815.2 mps 6. Plug all your Rifle & Ammo Data into Ballistics Calculator (AtragMX or whatever you use) → you gotta get all these ballistics data of your Loadout from the mod author of the weapon or you can just google it! To bring up the AtragMX, you click “Pause/Break” key. Then you select the “GunList” at the bottom left corner of your AtragMX screen. Then you select “Add New Gun”. Then Add a “New Gun Name”. Then you go to the “Gun” tab in the AtragMX. Then you select M (Metric unit) at the top right corner. And then you plug-in all these things: a. Muzzle Velocity → you plug the True MV that you just measure through the “Chronograph” before! Remember MV is always constantly changing depending on the Air Temperature & Barrel Length!!! b. Ballistics Coefficient → ask the mod author or just use the config file viewer in the EDEN Editor! (AtragMX only works with G1 BC! If you got G7 BC, you gotta convert it first to G1 BC) c. Bullet Caliber/Diameter → ask the mod author or just use the config file viewer in the EDEN Editor! d. Bullet Length & Twist Rate → ask the mod author or just use the config file viewer in the EDEN Editor! e. Bullet Mass → ask the mod author or just use the config file viewer in the EDEN Editor! f. Scope Height → ACE3 scope height is always 3.81 cm / 1.5 inch g. Zero Range → always plug 100 m! ------------> 7. Measure the Atmospheric Condition using the Kestrel 4500 and plug the data into Ballistics Calculator (AtragMX or whatever you use) → To open Kestrel 4500 for the first time, click “Scroll Lock”, then press the down arrow to switch it to the “Atmosphere” page. It’ll show you these 3 things which you gotta plug into the AtragMX: a. Air Pressure → in hPa b. Air Temperature → in °C c. Humidity → in % Remember this atmospheric condition is always changing all the time so you better always monitor it with the Kestrel 4500! To keep the Kestrel 4500 opened all the time, click “Left Shift + Scroll Lock”! It’ll show up at the left bottom of your screen permanently. Yup, you can easily keep track of the Atmospheric Condition by letting the Kestrel stay open like that. Click the Atmosphere tab in the AtragMX, then select “TBH”, and then enter those 3 things into the AtragMX! ----------------> ----------------> 8. Plug all the Target Data into Ballistics Calculator (AtragMX or whatever you use)! Plug them all in the “Target” tab in AtragMX: a. Range → find it with Laser Range Finder (click “B” key and aim it at the target) b. Angle of Firing → for uphill and downhill shooting, measure it with the Protractor (click “Left CTRL + Left Shift + K” key) c. Target Speed & Direction → for moving target d. Latitude & Azimuth → For calculating the Coriolis Effect. Find the Azimuth with the compass (click “K”). The latitude for all common Arma 3 maps can be found in here e. Wind Speed & Direction → there are 2 ways to measure the Wind: - Using the Wind Arrow click “Left Shift + K” key to bring up the Wind Arrow. The Wind Arrow will show up at the upper left corner of your screen. It’ll show you where the wind actually blows. If the Wind Arrow is pointing to your right, it means the Wind is blowing to the right and your bullet trajectory will drift to the right. If the Wind Arrow is pointing to your left, it means the Wind is blowing to the left and your bullet trajectory will drift to the right. If the arrow turns out to be a White Circle, then it means there’s no wind at all. The Wind Arrow also shows you some different colors indicating different Wind Speeds (white = 1 mph ; very light green = 3 mph; light green = 5 mph ; green = 10 mph ; darker green = 20 mph ; yellow = 25 mph) based on Beaufort scale. Don't forget to convert the number from mph to m/s coz AtragMX can only use m/s! For Example: -----------> 3 mph - 8 mph Wind coming from 10 o'clock to 4 o'clock (Blowing from left to right) - Using the Kestrel 4500 Click “Scroll Lock” to bring up the Kestrel. Then click its down arrow button to switch from the “Atmosphere” page to the “Wind Speed” page. It’ll show you the wind speed (but that’s not the true wind speed you’re currently dealing with yet!). To get the real wind speed, you gotta have your Kestrel 4500 facing the wind directly! Click “Left Shift + Scroll Lock” to let the Kestrel stay open (it’ll show up permanently at bottom left corner), then you face the direction where the wind comes from. By doing that, the Kestrel 4500 will show the real wind speed. Here’s exactly how you do it . After getting the Wind Speed & Direction, you plug the data in the AtragMX to calculate its Windage value. Remember! Windage is very tricky, my friend! There are 2 types of Wind you gotta plug in AtragMX. 1. "Uprange Wind" → Wind at shooter's position (Wind that blows only around the shooter) 2. "Downrange Wind" → Wind all the way to target's position (Wind that blows between the shooter & the target) The Wind data that you got from Kestrel 4500 is actually an "Uprange Wind" coz that wind most likely blows only near you. You can only measure "Downrange Wind" with Mirage Reading (which is really hard to do in Arma 3). It means you can't really trust the Kestrel 4500 to measure the actual Wind Speed coz the Kestrel 4500 only measure the Uprange Wind :( Kestrel 4500 can't measure the Downrange Wind. So You also gotta pay attention to the Wind Arrow & the Mirage to measure the actual Downrange Wind. It's really hard to read them but if you practice a lot, you'll get the hang of it ;) Sometimes Uprange Wind could be equally the same as the Downrange Wind, but only when the map contour is perfectly flat (not mountainous at all)! If you're shooting in a mountainous area, the Uprange Wind & the Downrange Wind will always be different so be careful. Here's some trick to estimate Downrange Wind: After finding the Uprange & Downrange Wind, you gotta plug them both into the AtragMX! You may notice that in the “Target” tab in AtragMX, there are two gaps or squares to fill in Wind Speed. You better plug your Uprange Wind data (from Kestrel) into the gap/square number 1 (the left one) in the "Target" tab in AtragMX. And you plug the Downrange Wind data into the gap/square number 2 (the right one) in the "Target" tab in AtragMX Gap/Square number 1(the left one) is for "Uprange Wind" and Gap/Square number 2 (the right one) is for "Downrange Wind". After getting all the Target Data, you gotta plug them all into the Target tab! Then the AtragMX will give you the final Firing Solution. Here's the Official Manual of Horus AtragMX. Here's the AtragMX tutorial by ACE3 team. ----------> ----------> Or you can actually do the Todd Hodnett “Quick Windage Formula” instead of plugging the wind data in the AtragMX (yup it works! I always do this all the time coz it's much faster than using the AtragMX!) ^_^ 9. Plug the Firing Solution onto your Scope! → To compensate for Bullet Drop, Spin Drift, & Wind Drift, there are 2 things you can do : a. Dial the Scope Adjustment → click the "Up Arrow (↑)" and "Down Arrow (↓)" key for Bullet Drop. click the "Left Arrow (←)" and "Right Arrow (→)" key for Wind Drift and Spin Drift. But I strongly suggest you to NEVER dial for the Wind Drift coz wind is constantly changing all the time, so always use Mildot Holdover for the Wind Drift! I highly recommend you to use Todd Hodnett Quick Windage formula to calculate the Wind Drift fast without even using any ballistics calculator ;) b. you can do the “Mildot Holdover” → use the mildot to hold over the target for Bullet Drop & Wind Drift compensation without dialing the scope adjustment at all. Remember that AtragMX always spits out the Firing Solution in Miliradian! ACE3 scope adjustment is always in Miliradian! Arma 3 scope reticles are mostly Miliradian based reticles (Mildot)! So what is Miliradian? Miliradian is actualy a sniper's angular measurement. 1 Miliradian = 0.0572958° 1 Miliradian = 10 cm at 100 m 1 Miliradian = 1 m at 1 km 10. Always go Prone (click “Z’ key) to stabilize your aim and always Deploy a Bipod (click “C” key) to rest your rifle on it to reduce the scope sway significantly. 11. Make sure the Scope Sway has been reduced so the reticle & the rifle aren’t moving at all when you take the shot. If it still moves a bit, you can hold a breath by holding the right mouse button before taking the shot. 12. Take the shot (click Left Mouse Button really gently) and see the Point of Impact. If it’s still off the Point of Aim, then you gotta re-adjust your weapon system and do follow-up shot fast before the target runs away. Here’s my Arma 3 ACE3 Sniper Tutorial video in which i’m demonstrating all these easy 12 steps in less than 8 minutes: ARMA 3 ACE3 SNIPER TUTORIAL (VERY QUICK, SIMPLE, & EASY 12 STEPS) PLEASE TURN ON THE SUBTITLE! Coz there's no audible commentary in that video :( you guys notice all my shots land perfectly on that Steel Plate target, right? Not low or not high at all! Just perfectly dead on! \m/ Now that’s how you should snipe in Arma 3 (ACE3) from this moment on! Now it's all about ONE SHOT ONE KILL! Here's also some very nice tutorial pdf from QuickDagger (the author of Dagger Sniper Mod) → https://drive.google.com/open?id=1PWnTQRX-1NdpHFc2803mp5FbtCPykCZt Does my tutorial really work for live operative mission???

  16. STALKING, CAMOUFLAGE, ORIENTEERING, and SNIPER-UNIT TRAINING by R. Von Quest VERSION: v0.2.1 Beta UPDATED: 15 September 2017 DONATE: Support Project // INTRODUCTION: This is the Stand-Alone Module of my Scout/Sniper Addon from my SpookWarCom Project. This will focus more on the scout-side of the mysterious of the lethal Spec-Ops Sniper and the unique elements of scouting, stalking and the recon aspects of Scout/Sniper Operations. A Sniper is a highly trained marksman who operates alone, in a pair, or with a sniper team to maintain close visual contact with the enemy and engage targets from concealed positions or distances exceeding the detection capabilities of enemy personnel. These sniper teams operate independently, with little combat asset support from their parent units. Snipers typically have highly selective and specialized training and use high-precision/special application rifles and optics, and often have sophisticated communication assets to feed valuable combat information back to their units. ~ Wiki "One-Shot, One-Kill" // FEATURES: 3 Levels of Sniper Blinds: Sparse, Normal, Thick Acute Scout/Sniper Hearing while in Blind/Hide Keen sense of Smell for detecting nearby Enemy Questrel Weather Computer (aka Kestrel) 1966 USMC "Hathcock" Edition BoonieHat Cut or Clear the Grass for a clear view when prone Targets - Practice & Training Feedback System Scout/Sniper Stealth Options and System // NOTES: This is only about 20% done. This version was a re-write to get it back on track again. There are several features that may not still work, or are unfinished at this time. I just wanted to get this public version out now so you can test and enjoy what I have running so far that is at least stable and playable. The Ballistics do not work right now I believe. Just use ACE3 for now, or any other mod you prefer. This project is more about the Scouting Skills, rather than the Sniper Shooting anyway. I have a lot more coming, but updates are slow due to I have a huge mod-set under development at the time of this writing. Also to speed up this public version, there is no documentation included.

  20. Dear Arma community, I'd like to share some very useful military sniper technique called "Todd Hodnett Quick Windage Formula" which can be used in Arma 3 (especially with ACE3 mod). This technique was made by a famous gun instructor named Todd Hodnett. It has been used by military snipers (especially USMC, Navy Seal, & US Army) to calculate the windage/wind hold very fast without even using any ballistics calculator. You can use this formula for any kind of projectile (but you have to adjust it depending on the BC though)! here's the easy & simple Todd Hodnett Quick Windage Formula: Windage (Miliradian) = Wind Speed (mph) / BC 1st decimal number X Target Range (converted to 0.xxx Miliradian) "Wind Speed" is the FINAL VALUE of wind speed (not its real speed) after taking Wind Direction into account! "BC 1st decimal number" is the 1st decimal number of your BC (0.4xx BC → 4 ; 0.5xx BC → 5 ; 0.6xx BC → 6 ; 0.7xx BC → 7 ; 0.8xx BC → 8 ; 0.9xx BC → 9 ; 1.xxx BC → 10 ; so on) "Target Range converted to Miliradian" is the conversion of the target range into miliradian:100 m = 0.1 mil 200 m = 0.2 mil300 m = 0.3 mil400 m = 0.4 mil500 m = 0.5 mil600 m = 0.7 mil → adding 0.1 mil due to velocity bleed off (depending on the BC though) 700 m = 0.8 mil800 m = 0.9 mil900 m = 1.0 mil1000 m = 1.1 milso on After getting the windage, snipers use their mildot reticle to compensate for that wind drift. They're using the mildot to hold to the left or right of the target for the wind drift. NEVER dial the scope adjutment turret for the wind coz it's useless (wind is always constantly changing)!!! :( so always hold for the wind!!! For example: you're shooting M24 SWS rifle loaded with M118LR ammo (BC = 0.485 (G1)). Wind blows 12 mph from the Left to the Right. Your target is at 600 m away from you. What's your windage? :/ Windage (Mil) = Wind Speed (mph) / BC 1st decimal number X Target Range (converted to 0.xxx Mil) Windage (Mil) = 12 mph / 4 X 0.600 Mil Windage (Mil) = 1.8 Mil to the Right of your target so to compensate for that wind, you hold 1.8 Miliradian into the direction in which the wind comes from (you hold 1.8 Miliradian to the left of your target just like in the picture below). Never dial-in for the Wind Drift! You always have to hold into the direction in which the wind comes from (just like in the picture above)! This can be used for 5.56 mm with a BC of .3xx, using 3 mph window (adding 0.1 mil at 500 m and beyond)This can be used for 300 Win Mag with a BC of .5xx using 5 mph window (adding 0.1 mil at 700 m and beyond)This can be used for 338 LM with a BC of .6xx using 6 mph window (adding 0.1 mil at 800 m and beyond)and so on.this technique is best to hold off for the wind especially when wind is changing like crazy give this a try, it'll get your shot 100% dead on the target! i tried it in this game & it surprisingly works! To demonstrate it, i show you 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 "Todd Hodnett Quick Windage Formula" works in Arma 3 (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 :( Sniper Quick Windage Formula with USMC M40A5 rifle (in 7.62x51 mm Nato cartridge) & M118LR ammo --> Sniper Quick Windage Formula with NSWC MK13 mod 5 rifle (in 300 winchester magnum cartridge) & MK248 mod 0 ammo --> Sniper Quick Windage Formula with AI L115A3 rifle (in 338 Lapua Magnum cartridge) & Blackhills Sierra 300 gr MK ammo --> Sniper Quick Windage Formula with NSWC MK12 mod 1 SPR (in 5.56x45 mm Nato cartridge) & MK262 mod 1 ammo --> Sniper Quick Windage Formula with CheyTac M200 Intervention (in 408 CheyTac cartridge) & CheyTac 419 gr Lost River ammo --> So that's how military snipers deal with Wind Drift. Very fast and easy! Just try it yourself ;) if you got some time, please check out my youtube channel here --> 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. Please share the knowledge with others coz knowing is half the battle ;) Good shooting! -Best Sniper Simulator-
  21. hi all. After 4 hours researching im left no option but to ask! I want to reveal all units in a given area / distance to a SINGLE UNIT .(In this case a sniper) Ive found lots of examples of revealing enemy to allies etc but not enemies to a single unit and then target them? So far i can only get this to work for targeting a unit with a unit: sniper1 doTarget muppet; (This works well, as the sniper even fires at well over 600ms probably would go much further...) But i want the sniper to know all enemy targets in a 1500m every x amount of seconds. basically below is the jist of what i want: (sniper1) snipers init field: revealedunits = nearestObjects [sniper1, ["man"], 1500]; sniper1 doTarget revealedunits; sleep 60; obviously code does not work! but I need something along the lines of: >List all enemy in radius from sniper. >Reveal those enemies to the sniper >sniper target those enemies >reset script after x amount of time i would rather use a simple in-editor script if possible as I am not using .sqf at this time (or have ever used it?) but im open to change if needs must. Just point out where i would need to place the sqf's if you would. thx. good night.
  22. Hello everyone, after briefly learning how to snipe on Ace by watching videos i've got some questions that YouTube wasn't able to answer. First of all i'm using the Intervention along with the Vector 21 so i can sync data to the ATragMX without copying and pasting all the time, after that i get the temperature, the humidity and the barometric pressure from the Kestrel 4500 and copy-paste it on the ATragMX. I auto-set the crosswind and the headwind and get the average Wind SPD of around 30 seconds, and i paste the min on 1 on the Wind Speed on the Target tab of the ATragMX followed by the max value on 2 and then the wind direction, if the min and max are the same then i just input the same value on both fields. Finally i take the shot and re-adjust properly if i miss. I collect all the data standing up without being blocked by bushes/trees. Is there any way to collect the wind data more efficiently? Cause most of the time my shots are landing left or right of the enemy, and am i inputting the wind correctly inside ATragMX because almost all the people i've watched are doing it differently (most of my shots are on ~1400km). If i missed anything i will explain it, just ask for it.
  23. Arma 3 Concealment on Tanoa

    Here is my latest video on concealment - What do you guys think about concealment? Is it a practical knowledge to apply? What do you all think about Bohemia's latest Tanoa ghillie? Personally I really like it. I do think Bohemia should release rifle skins that are shaded better than the current ones.
  24. Hello guys, In the mission Editor, I often put enemy sniper or rpg on roof of buildings, Unfortunately they are always fast detected and killed before to be a real menace. I use this dostop true or disable ai move and I also use setunitpos to select the stance. If I Iet the vanilla ai system, they just go prone when the detect enemy, and can’t fire through the window or from the roof… I would like to make a little scrips lunched on the AI initialization field, or from a trigger to make an ambush like situation to make my AI switch from down to middle just a little time to firing and hide again for a certain time. I was thinking to something like this: (sorry I am not aware about the syntax) _myunit setunitpos “down†Sleep random [ 30, 50] <- Wait random time from 30 to 50 sec _myunit setunitpos “middle†Sleep random [ 5, 10] (the time to select a target and dofire, and hide again) #loop I am sure that if it works it can add a lot immersion in hostile zone. Please if someone can help me in syntax for the script and for the initialization to run an maybe add a variable in the timing… Thanks for reading. Cheers
