Weapon Safety


This mod allows you to safe any weapon, including vehicle weapons and as such prevents accidental weapon discharges.
When your weapon is on safe you also do not throw grenades.

Extract into the ArmA 3 Directory, by default this is located in:
32-Bit - C:\Program Files\Steam/Steamapps\Common\ArmA 3\
64-Bit - C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam/Steamapps\Common\ArmA 3\
After extraction it should look like this:
Steam\Steamapps\Common\ArmA 3\@your_mod_folder_name\addons\

You can also use the "Arma 3 Alpha" folder in your "My Documents" folder. Your folder setup could than look like for example this:
mydocuments\Arma3 Alpha\@your_mod_folder_name1\addons\
mydocuments\Arma3 Alpha\@your_mod_folder_name2\addons\
mydocuments\Arma3 Alpha\@your_mod_folder_name2\addons\

When present place the "userconfig" folder into your game install folder, usually:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Arma 3".
You may already have "userconfig" folder from other addons and/or mods in which case it is safe to merge the contents from this archive.

You'll also need to add a Launch Parameter to Steam, in order to do so right-click on ArmA 3 Alpha and click Properties and then Set Launch Options. In the window that opens enter in -mod=@your_mod_folder_name
For using multiple mods you would then do so like this:

You can also use -nosplash to get rid of the splash art and intro videos.

And of course you can also enable and disable community made addons and mods through the in-game Options Expansions menu if you do not want to mess with startup parameters!

When the above information still does not provide you with enough to learn how to install custom addons and mods you can always ask in our Guide On Installing Mods.

Included files:

To safe your weapon simply hit: SHIFT + ~ (next to 1 on the keyboard number line).
To unsafe your weapon you can simply hit your change weapon key (default: f) or shift + ~ again or use scroll wheel to reload.

Known issues:
Please let me know of any bugs either by email (see readme) or by sending me a pm on the OCB forums ( )

When you safe your weapon, the mod will drain your currently loaded magazine. When you unsafe your weapon, you magazine will fill with the previous amount of bullets you had loaded.

Custom Weapon Compatibility
It is 100% compatible with every weapon and vehicle mod out there (that I know of)!
