Tracer Mod


So back in 2009 a similar mod was released for Arma 2 by "Pistolfied" and I really enjoyed it.
AFAIK nobody made a mod like this for Arma 3, so I thought I'd share my own creation.

This mod will make all (I hope) rifles, carbines and machineguns fire nothing but tracer rounds.
Note that I have left out vehicle ammo, sniper rifles, and pistols.

5.56mm 30rnd STANAG Mag
6.5mm 30Rnd STANAG Mag
6.5mm 30Rnd Caseless Mag
6.5mm 100Rnd Belt Case
6.5mm 200Rnd Belt
6.5mm 200Rnd Belt Case
7.62(x51)mm 150Rnd Box
7.62(x54)mm 150Rnd Box
.338 NM 130Rnd Belt
9.3mm 150Rnd Belt
9mm 30Rnd Mag
9mm 16Rnd Mag
.45 ACP 30Rnd Vermin Mag

20161201: APEX mags added.
Added some mags I missed

Might have forgotten some but whatever :P

This may not be realistic but it is a lot of fun!

Not tested in MP. Not really tested in SP either, just enjoyed.
The mod is signed though.

To install Tracer Mod you should use modfolders to keep it seperate from the official game content to prevent issues.
With Arma 3 you can use different ways to set up your modfolders to use custom content you have downloaded.
Please visit the Arma 3 Mod install instructions page for more information about using custom mods and addons in Arma 3.
