Hi

Just downloaded Arma 2 Free - is it possible to play as a sniper only throughout this game?

If not is it possible to play as a sniper only throughout Arma 2 (not free!)?

If not is it possible to play as a sniper only throughout Arma 3?

I'm a 10 year+ vet of WWIIOnline (now Battleground Europe) and I'm looking for loads of realistic sniper action but not that stupid game with the bullet cam that you can't switch off lol!

Many thanks

Doc

I don’t understand your question very well. 90% of ArmA takes place in user made mission, and other content. They will determine for you what role you have, and you can simple skip it if you don’t like it. BIS missions as far as i have played them revolve around 'soldiers' in basic. ArmA is not an sniper game it’s an simulator.....Maybe buy the game have a look around, read the forums, YouTube and other media and then ask yourself this: What have i found and what’s was I expecting and does this compute with each other. Or simply only download sniper missions and play that for the next 10 years?

Thanks, you have answered my question! I've not played this at all, hence the question. I played loads of IL2 where you could make your own missions - a great idea, so this looks good to me from what you are saying.

Cheers

Doc

You can build your own sniper missions if you want, theres really no limitations to any of the games in the series.

After 1 day I agree Gunther - and I'm a programmer so this looks like a load of fun :)
