Training for Arma2 - Combined Operations

Recommended Posts

I thought it might be nice to have a thread where experienced players (and others) can make suggestions regarding training. Scripts, routines. techniques, video clips, etc; useful equipment, weapons; anything to help train new participants to Arma2.

Here's mine. This video clip is not so much about the techique used; but more about the level of detail required to "simply" breach a room.

Its me that's need the ideas so grateful for any input.

Thanks. Wombat out.

(a.) Don't forget the SP "Ärmory" section to help with weapon training. It includes small training mission which you elect to do by way of testing your weapon training.

(b.) In SP missons (under "Scenarios") the mission "Trial by Fire" is a good starting point for an infantryman. Give you simple tips as you progess, but watch out for the Machine Gunner ....... he's lethal ...... :superscare:

Thought this, from here, was worth repeating:

Extract:

ArmA II is not like other FPS's, it is a simulation. Most, if not all that you learned in other FPS's is wrong. You cannot stand out in the middle of an open street or field or run around blasting away and expect to survive long in a real battle or in a simulation of real battle. Bouncing around in full kit in real battle does not stop you getting shot; you simply get tired quickly, attract the wrong kind of attention, and would probably break your ankles; so just as you would not do it in real life you cannot do it in ArmA II. You have no uber body armor, no magical medipacks, no bunny hop rocket boots. It is just you, and what ever weapons you are carrying. If you get shot any where important you are going to die, often right away.

If you are a new player you are going to die and you are going to die a lot. This is simply part of the learning curve, there are ways however you can get over the hump faster. That is what this section of the biki will help you with.

You are going to have learn the basic battle drills and the difference between cover and concealment. There is a lot to learn but it can be fun. Surviving in ArmA II is hard, but one day you may find yourself with a bunch of your buddies hunting T90s like stone age humans hunting mammoths.

As someone new to Arma2, it gives me hope. And I need plenty of that. :lol:

Spot on. Good decisions come with wisdom. Wisdom comes from experience. Experience comes from making bad decisions.

A tip on staying stealthy when lying prone: use the <ALT> key with the Mouse rather than just the mouse to look around. It keeps you from kicking up, dirt, shit and stuff when you only use the Mouse.
