Hello All,

I'm new here and new to the game, most used to other FPS games but really interested by the ArmA 2 realism.
I would like to know if I must purchase Combined Operations or only OA, what will be the advantage/disadvantage ?

How will be the mods and addons installation if I have CO vs only OA ?

Thanks all in advance for your answers.

Have a nice one.

Welcome to Armaholic Maluson! :-)

I would like to know if I must purchase Combined Operations or only OA, what will be the advantage/disadvantage ?

You can purchase OA as a standalone (Only have what OA offers) or Combined operations which is Arma 2 and OA combined.

There really only are advantages to getting Combined Operations:

  • You would save money if you purchased the game as Combined Operations (Rather than buying them separately )
  • With Arma 2 you get a lot of stuff like the USMC and Russian faction with 2 great islands to explore

How will be the mods and addons installation if I have CO vs only OA ?

With Arma 2 it is different than OA. For installing mods with ArmA 2 look at the FAQ

With OA you go in-game (after creating a mod folder) and click expansions, your mods should be listed there.

Hope I helped, if you have anymore questions feel free to ask!

Welcome to you both as your both new users!

Anyway, if your looking for more info on the game series etc, and want to help out BIS
by buying from Sprocket, then check out our shop page here.

And I would opt for buying Combined operations, BAF, PMC,.. though PMC was kind of dissapointing in my
oppinion BAF was simply amazing.
