    Did you happen to notice that they adjusted their scopes for range, wind, and such? You do realise that adjusting the range on the scope allows them to essentially place the crosshair on center mass and hit the target as long as the scope can be adjusted to the range. example being the AS50 has a max ranging of 1600m. After 1600m, you need to use the lines below the crosshair.

    no prob then


    Here are some more new screenshots:

    Its semi accurate,

    What I mean is that when you adjust a scope such as a Leopold or other LONG range scope, you will factor in range, temp windspeeds, vertical interval and more. Once you have this setup on your DOPE sheet, it will help you set the right elevation and windage of the scope to allow the crosshairs to be on the target but programmed to factor in all I said above. THis is only true on non moving targets.

    Even with a good Leopold it can only be adjust so far before you have to start compensating for the range as the optic can only adjust so far. AFAIK a 1000m is well out of that adjustment range. Max I've seen is about 850m with pure adjustment.

    1000M sniper shots are really not uncommon especially on a stationary target. With some practice a person could hit these with the rifles shown in that video.

    Not saying the shot cannot be made. :laugh: I'm saying aiming center mass at 1000m and hitting isn't.

    well, there were 3 of them shooting at the same target. They did not know who got the kill till later. The first shot was 925 meters. The second part has the 1200m shot.

    actually, the "1000m" shot was only 925m which is within the range of the scope without having to zoom out, take the shot, then zoom in to compensate. I read the spec sheet on the Tac-50.

    You're right. That's why some weapons in this game have zeroing. Just like in real life you zero your weapon into the distance needed... Then aim for center mass.

    Thanks for converging everything I said into a simple and concise statement.

    On another note, Only a few more Hours to go till Alpha launch.
    I am still looking for people who want an invite to the Alpha. I already have Brandonwh64 and have slots for 2 more. If I am feeling generous, I may even get the cheapest pack for someone who wants the alpha but can not afford it atm. Keep me posted guys and Enjoy the Vids I know I did!

    ETA 3hrs 30min

    You understand that 1600m is a mile right? Even with a .50cal you have to aim about 3 feet above a stationary target to even get close to center mass in ZERO wind? Bottom line is the shot made in that video isn't remotely accurate.

    Performance issue's ?, you mean Arma 2 as i used max setting with 4AA and 16AF with a view distance of 45k without issue.


    TBH i am more bothered if they updated the dedi server file to use more than one core as it's about time they did.

    So some one got it yet like to hear if the dedi has been sorted out ?.

    Think i will have to pick this up in a day or so :)..

    Wow, talk about a significant step forward for the game. I'm excited to see it in action! I think the coolest things at the moment are definitely the adjustable stances and player speeds.

    I must say, if mailman is not at the slightest impressed by the game play and GFX of this then there is gotta be something wrong from the lover of military games.

    Mailman, watch this video at 2:35! and make sure you set 1080P in youtube!

    Arma 3 at 1080p with maximum settings - YouTube
