Right into the Scopes of ARMA 3 Alpha
A content update has recently arrived for ARMA 3 Alpha, one that promises to cause players either hours of gleeful fun, or hours of hair-tearing grief, depending on which end of the sniper rifles you find yourselves on. Yes, more snipers have arrived in ARMA 3, a game already famous for modelling it's bullet drop to an amazingly simulator-like degree and anal-retentive attention to detail. The descriptions for the two rifles released basically is gun porn, so those sensitive to such indecent material may wish to avert their eyes from the following quote:
"The first rifle, the M6 Lynx, is a semi-automatic anti-materiel rifle using 12.7x108 mm ammo. Its purpose is to stop or disable targets such as light armored vehicles, armored rifle troops, light shelters and helicopters from 600–800 m range.
The second weapon, the M320R Long Range Rifle, is a .408 caliber sniper rifle, valued for its accuracy up to 2000 meters."
Furthermore, ghillie suits have also been included for those who constantly wish to re-enact that one famous mission from Modern Warfare, and marginally more useful tools such as sniper optics and a rangefinder have also been included. Some features have also been improves, such as the addition of a stance indicator, most of which can be reviewed in the changelog.
