Ghost Recon CROSSCOM (HUD Only)


A Mod based on Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon, which covers the series from the original era until Ghost Recon Wildlands. It is primarily focused on making a functional and working CROSSCOM 2.0 system in Arma, based on the one from Advanced Warfighter and Future Soldier.

This version contains ONLY the HUD, and does not include the Ghost Recon themed faction.

Technical mod information-

The CROSSCOM will IFF (Identify Friend/Foe) targets out to 200m for infantry, 300m for vehicles, in a colored diamond for infantry, square for vehicle, similar to Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter- Red is hostile or unknowns, Blue is allied squadmates. Weather, time of day and the amount of cluttered terrain or stance all affect the HUD- it's harder to get an accurate read for the CROSSCOM when at night, in bad weather such as a storm or typhoon, and prone targets in brush terrain are harder to tag than standing targets in the open. The HUD also gives a readout of your current grid reference (GRD) and time of day (Local Mean Time, LMT) in the corner of the screen.

Squad Linked HUD-

The HUD is linked between squad members, meaning if one player spots a target it will appear as tagged for the entire squad if they are in close proximity to each other, out to about 50-75m between the individuals. I reccomend disabling the ingame Squad hexagons when using the CROSSCOM.

Broken LOS Area marks-

If you have no direct line of sight to the tagged target or have lost line of sight to the target, for example if an enemy ducks behind cover, a broken outline of the diamond or square in the respective colour will appear in the last spotted location for a short period of time before fading on your HUD.

The CROSSCOM is linked to several inventory items, and will only boot up and be enabled if you are wearing those items- the mod scans your inventory upon spawn and gives you tactical googles if you have no CROSSCOM item, meaning that the mod is usable in all custom missions and even in the official campaign, but bear in mind that it is rather over-powered for the base game campaign.

UAV Supported-

If you have a UAV overwatch in your mission that is controlled by a player who had the HUD, the UAV can tag targets for infantry or armored units. If a squadmate has the HUD enabled while linked to a UAV drone, the UAV's tag targets will be projected onto the HUD of the UAV operator and all infantry units in that squad, visible as a tag which can been seen through obstacles such as hills and terrain. If your UAV looses visual on the enemy forces the tag is removed after a short period of time.

In addition to the HUD, the mod also moves the player's third person camera to an over-the-shoulder perspective, similar to the Ghost Recon games.


The mod uses an Autoconfig, so you must manually install that in addition to subscribing to the Workshop mod.

In order to do this, download the file- (there is a space in Media you need to fix)
and navigate to
and find or create a Userconfig file there, into which you place the folder with the data and settings.

List of CROSSCOM supported items-

Tactical Glasses, Tactical Googles, VR Headset, Assassin Helmet (Black), Viper helmets.

To install Ghost Recon CROSSCOM (HUD Only) 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.

-Added support for NATO, AAF, CSAT Jet Pilot helmets for the CROSSCOM, to simulate the advanced heads-up-displays
-Performance improvements to the CROSSCOM initialisation period and when in heavier combat

Important- If you want support for the new helmets you need to re-download the CROSSCOMDATA Mediafire link.

This is Identical to the other CROSSCOM mod, except it does not include the Ghost Recon faction to reduce dependencies.
