The Key Contents of Arma 3 Update 2.14

1. New Railgun Tank "T-100x Futura"

Perhaps the biggest innovation from the current update is the two new tanks. Arma 3 has always been futuristic and featured military prototypes, but now the leap into the future is complete. The new tanks are equipped with an extremely powerful railgun.

To fire it, the gunner must charge the cannon (hold down the left mouse button). An energy bar in the upper right corner charges up to 110%. When the gunner releases the mouse button, the new tank in Arma 3 fires a supersonic projectile that inflicts massive damage.

2. New Items

  • 7x new Balaclavas
  • 10x new Bandanas
  • 2x new Caps
  • Lantern
  • Pumpkin
  • Scarecrow
  • Portable flagpole
  • Area Marker
