Shoulder-mounted Light


This is a light that is attached to your shoulder. Also known as a flashlight, dive light or a torch, this light keeps your hands free to perform other tasks while you swim or shoot or plant explosives. Currently, this is clientside only. Lights will not be visible on other units in multiplayer environments.

red color to preserve night vision and navigation
blue color for tracking blood trails and map reading
green color for hunting (won't spook prey)

To install Shoulder-mounted Light 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.

Included files:

Go into Controls Menu > Configure Addons
Select "Shoulder-Mounted Light" from dropdown menu
Customize controls to your taste or leave as default
Use these controls to activate the light in game

Known issues:
If you get into a vehicle, the light will stay outside of the vehicle until you turn it off and back on. Brightness adjustment won't work while in a vehicle at this time.
Turning on the light will activate the "weapon rest" opportunity thing.
