Bohemia Interactive

Celebrated with a brand new launch trailer, Bohemia Interactive today released the much-anticipated Marksmen DLC for Arma 3. The new DLC adds seven new weapons, two scopes, remote laser-designators, ghillie suits, firing drills, and the Marksmen showcase scenario. The Marksmen DLC is accompanied by a major free supporting Arma 3 platform update, which implements game-changing features such as weapon resting and deployment, sound enhancements, a new multiplayer mode, and more.

Hone your shooting skills and engage in ranged combat with the seven new weapons in the Arma 3 Marksmen DLC.
  • Seven New Weapons - Five marksmen rifles and two medium machine guns offer new opportunities for squad-based gameplay. The new weapons are:
    • Cyrus 9.3 mm – a high power marksman rifle
    • MAR-10 .338 – a high power marksman rifle
    • Mk-I EMR 7.62 mm – a medium power marksman rifle
    • Mk14 7.62 mm – a medium power marksman rifle
    • ASP-1 Kir – a special purpose rifle
    • SPMG .338 – a lightweight medium machine gun
    • Navid 9.3 mm – a medium machine gun
  • Scopes - The AMS and Kahlia medium range scopes complement both the new and existing weapons.
  • Remote Designators - Two remotely-operated laser-designators can be used to spot and laser designate targets from afar.
  • Ghillie Suits - New ghillie suits for the NATO, CSAT, and AAF factions provide camouflage for various terrain types.
  • Firing Drills - Combine movement and medium range shooting in three new Purple Courses of Fire.
  • Showcase Marksmen - Use your new abilities and long range sharpshooting skills in a tense reconnaissance mission.
The Arma 3 Marksmen DLC is supported by a major Arma 3 platform update, featuring a wide variety of new content and features. The platform update is free for all owners of Arma 3.

Supporting Content:
  • End Game Multiplayer Mode - A team-based multiplayer mode, containing experimental gameplay features such as Dynamic Groups, Shared Objectives, and Revive.
  • Showcase Firing From Vehicles - Experience the Firing From Vehicles feature in an actual combat scenario for both singleplayer and co-operative multiplayer.
  • VR Training - Three new courses to train up your weapon handling skill-set.
  • Virtual Garage - Examine and customize the extensive collection of vehicles in Arma 3.
  • Vests & Face Paints - Three new heavy and grenadier vests designed specifically for improved explosive shielding and ballistic protection. Nine new types of face paint are added to provide maximum concealment for soldiers.
  • Editor Objects - New shooting range objects for Arma 3 content creators, including VR (vehicle) targets, balloons, swivel and dueling targets, shooting mats, a shot timer, a bullet trap, and an air horn
Supporting Features:
  • Weapon Resting & Deployment - Benefit from a passive bonus to your accuracy while your weapon or arms are near any stable surface. Deploy your weapon firmly using bipods for the greatest precision possible.
  • Improved Recoil & AI Suppression Simulation - Fire personal weapons with a greater feeling of power and authenticity. Observe Artificial Intelligence units suffer impaired combat efficiency when under fire.
  • Sound Enhancements - Be immersed by a richer combat sound scape in different surroundings, at a distance, and under incoming fire.

At this point, the DLC can be purchased via the BI Store, through Steam, or directly from in game. Depending upon if you've purchased it or not, you'll encounter differences right from the main menu. To explain further, let's take a look at two cases:

The Owners:
  • You launch the game and see an icon at the bottom the main menu, indicating that the Helicopters DLC is installed and owned.
  • Clicking on the icon will open the Field Manual to the Helicopters DLC records.
  • The helicopter is available as you would expect in the editor, along with the official scenarios, and multiplayer - have fun!
The Non-Owners:
  • You launch the game and see an icon in the top left of the main menu, indicating that the Helicopters DLC is available.
  • You could purchase the DLC right there and then, but choose to continue to play on as normal.
  • The helicopter is available to try out in the editor, but the SP scenario is locked.
      - You can use the helicopter with some restrictions (e.g. you can only board the helicopter as a passenger).
      - The longer you actively use it, the more prominent the premium content notifications become.
  • Afterwards, you join a multiplayer server that uses the MP scenario (or any custom mission including the helicopter):
      - You can join as normal.
      Again, you experience the progressive DLC notifications and restrictions.
  • Since you've really enjoyed the helicopter so far(!), you decide to buy it in-game directly.
      - The limitations and notifications are immediately removed.
      - We display a confirmation note - thank you!
