Arma 3 community guide details combined arms combat

A new community guide video for Arma 3, Bohemia Interactive's tactical military shooter, shares tips and tricks for combining the game's vehicles and units in combat.

The video first details the game's infantrymen and how to properly match them with other elements — otherwise known as combined arms warfare. According to the video's narrators, this "creates limitless tactical options." Other topics include getting into the fight via ground, air or sea and how to best use vehicles.

"When it comes to mission design with combined arms scenarios, the best thing to remember is that every element — be they infantry or a vehicle — should play a role," the narrator said. "Keep it fun and engaging for the whole team. Having one powerful element destroy everything may be fun for that element, but it will be at the expense of the rest of the team."

Check out the video above for more details on combined arms warfare. Arma 3 launched earlier this month for Windows PC.
