Realistic Tracer Mod Project
WolfBane, Centipede, Kenbow, Predator, Sickboy

With this mod you can use realistic tracers in Armed Assault. The laser-beam tracers in the original game will be disabled.

Just extract to your ArmA\Addons... folder, or use the modfolder method.

- Read the included documentation

Included files:

- View a video on YouTube.


  1. Glowing orb tracer.
  2. Tracer color based on side: BLUFOR fire red tracer OPFOR will fire green.
  3. Different size for certain class of ammo. I have defined three sets of ammo:
    1. small arms for rifles and MG round
    2. HMG for HMG (12.7mm) and cannon rounds
    3. MBT for tanks main guns

Known Issues:
It seems the tracer wont be visible in a low FPS environmentlike bushes, forests. no idea how to solve this yet.

Do NOT modify any file, release with both ReadMe's intact, no warranty.

  • fix problem after firing rocket or grenade tracer will now longer be available . (units that have multiple weapons like vehicles and AT soldier).
  • add more parameter wheter to enable ricochet or to activate tracer based on weapon.
  • fix init script calling for "cent_tracer_effect.sqf" which has been deleted in v1.11.
  • add tracer size modifier. now you can change tracer size.
  • remove redundant file ("cent_tracer_effect.sqf") for tracer and ricochet effect. they basically do the same thing so i remove one, thus making the file smaller.
  • tracers will now ricochet.
