BackpackOnChest is a mod, which adds the functionality of carrying an extra backpack on your chest.
- Adds the ability to put his backpack on the Chest. (This gives a huge advantage especially when parachuting)
- Adds a backpack on Chest-Action to the ACE3 SelfInteraction-Menu
- Forces the player to walk while having a backpack on the chest
To install BackpackOnChest 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.
