Last thing i heard, They removed it due to it being against the Geneva Convention. I may be wrong but its a shame.

Might be disabled during Alpha, a month or so ago the devs were interviewed & replied that the feature would be only available on a per side basis due to the fact it messed with the AI too much.

The whole Geneva convention thing is a joke. It's also against the Geneva convention to use 12.7mm or incendiary ammo on humans, as well as to run them over, but we can still do that.

You are not supposed to wear enemy uniforms in ArmA 3, it is game rule. (Disregard early trailer which let you disguise as enemy, they removed this ability later in the game) You still can get enemy vests, backpacks and headgear though.

Seems kind of silly to not make this an option like everything else in the game.

If you read my note dsi24 you'd notice the tid bit about AI.

i noticed this playing the underwater showcase...killed an enemy and in his gear menu his opfor clothes were listed as an available item. when i tried to equip, i was undressed of my wetsuit, but then the opfor gear disappeared (like dayz style). Now naked, killed another guy, his uniform also was availble, but again couldnt take it. it would leave them naked, and me too. (was able to put on wetsuit again)

had the same issue with diver. would love to change in to proper camo after water
infiltration but sadly not possible.

I partially agree - it may be good, but I've seen app. 1000 teamkills in 1 hour of gameplay, from people not checking uniforms, or claiming others put different uniforms on.

Change it, but make it dependend on e.g. the Unit you steal from has detected you, or you killed it undetected - if you havent been seen and shot at, you can steal the units uniform.

you can dress as an enemy but not in the way like in that one trailer.
from gears menu you can take uniform, vest, headgear etc.
i didn't try in the scuba showcase but in editor and it worked

@SGTIce: Many people do not play with AI now. Make the affects it has on AI known, and let people use the option at their own will.

Do I look like a dev...?

If you want it to be an option get people to vote on it.

Cancer were you on United Operations? Saw a guy do that during a TvT in a friends video, everyone was cracking up.

People probably claimed that due to the fact they didn't want to take the time to figure out if it was an enemy & got trigger happy.

its a feature not a bug, sorry. Closing
