Seconding this.
I believe that current system fits DayZ (which is close encounters-focused due to it's "Friendly?" nature and need of social interactions between players), but it needs fine tuning to fit Arma.
Reforger's implementation has several problems:

  1. It promotes close firefights no further than 100 meters (tbh, I never had even a midrange firefight at this moment), and this is wrong on so many levels as Arma was always about combined arms and actions on a squad/platoon level.
  2. Since soldiers become just a few pixels beyond 200 meters, players can't see the result of their shootings, even that Arma 3 jittery hit animation was much better. It's a game, almost no one enjoys bullet-raining trees and bushes for an hour as it happens in real life. This detrimens gunplay a lot.
  3. This basically makes any kind of rifle optics is necessary to hit something beyond 200 meters, so all public servers will be just PSO-1/ACOG fest. Humans are able to recognize and hit standing target with naked eye up to 400 meters as it stated, for example, in AK-74's shooting instruction books.

Can confirm - worked for me too. Thank you for posting the solution.

"Since the DLC came out" or "Since the last Arma update 2.04 came out"
when exactly did that start? So far it doesn't seem to be caused by Arma.

I have the same problem. I had it before 19th May when i was on Steam Beta branch, but since i opted out of it things became good again. Until today.
Error started appearing today again, i guess this Steam Beta update moved into their stable Steam branch.
