Ability to carry .50 cal anti-material sniper rifles in the launcher slot
Closed, ResolvedPublic


I know there aren't any sniper rifles in Arma 3 right now, but when they are added into the game (probably in the Beta) I want the ability to carry them in the launcher slot if for example I want to clear my path to a certain location and set up an ambush there (something like an assault rifle/carbine/SMG+.50 cal).
I haven't done much researching so I'm sorry if this is a duplicate.
If someone down-votes please leave an explanation.

I use the R3F weapon-mod and the "heavy" sniper rifles, like the PGM Hecate, are using both, rifle AND launcher slot and this is pretty annoying...

What's annoying about it?

You can't carry heavy rifles and a smaller rifle, but you can carry some heavy rifles and a launcher, or a rifle and a launcher.

Sidearms don't always have the range you want, your rifle slot and launcher will be taken by your sniper.

There's a mod for A2/CO that allows you to store a weapon on your back/in backpack and switch between the one in your main slot, as well as carry a launcher.

Usually snipers go in teams of 2 ... spotter(with a rifle) and the sniper with the big gun. I think the best you can do is get a semi automatic pistol to use for close encounters. But i don't think that carrying an assault rifle + sniper rifle would be the best way to go

Do I understand this correctly that you want to be able to carry a full-sized assault rifle alongside a .50 sniper rifle?

Yes - Because US Marine Snipers do it at least. They have their precision M24, M110 or 50 cal alongside a standard M4/Carbine to blend in. Carrying a big rifle around makes you a target

This is a dupe of #5374.
