indeed arma3 is set into the future, but it would be nice to bring back the good NATO classics such as the m4 models/ scar models. it be a nice addition to players who are still lovingly attatched to arma2, giving them a benefit of having both futuristic and realistic weaponary.
- Legacy ID
- Feature Request
models of the m4/scars can vary. for arma3's sake it can go to mk18mod1s to custom
Just wait for Mods, the game is set in the future and that's how its going to be so most likely no M16's until mods come out with them. Which in my opinion is good because I haven't seen moders do anything with in the future scope of arma 3 but i have seen them make modern weapons and models before
I agree with W. Houck regarding us players waiting for addons. While I too have not seen a source stating that these firearms will be in the full version of the game by default, I'm almost positive we will see the Modding community add whatever is not present.
i understand but some of us aren't exactly perfect when it comes to installing mods, it would be great if they made some sort of maybe hk416 or a m4 hybrid
like this one http://www.supercars.net/pitlane/pics/70153/3340909b.jpg , or even better, cause a arma game ain't exactly a arma game without some good ar goodies,
Weapons balanced well.No need to add more weapons.One army weapon types,one SF(If needs).Like I saw BLUFOR - ACR and TAR21 and OPFOR KH2002 and Abakan(?,saw ammo for them in editor).If you would like to see BLUFOR much real - how do you explain Uberfuturistic Iranian gear?
To me M4 and M16 are pretty old weapons irl,but cause quantities in the world armies it still stay served.
One of the reasons behind purchasing Arma3 was all this new futuristic, yet believable, gear. I like how does it look and "feel". When I miss my beloved M4 (no SCAR, please) I launch Arma 2, which with 20+ GB of mods is still very enojable and immersive. Besides, there is already a nice M4 mod for A3, with different paints and attachments.
The M4 and M16 would be the equivalent of the AK-47 or Lee Enfield today. While you would still see them on the battlefield, they wouldn't be anyone's primary firearm.
You would more likely see weapons such as the H&K 416 or SCAR being used as the standard infantry rifle, as it takes many decades for a good rifle to be phased out. A perfect example of this is that the M16 was introduced in the 1960s to the US Military, and it is just now being phased out for the M4 in the Marine Corps.
In general though, the game isn't that far in the future, and weapon systems from 2013 would definitely still be around in the next 20 years.
