  • How to Snipe in Arma using the M24 Sniper rifle.

    Agnew found this post at SimHQ and turned me on to it.

    It is so well laid out. It teaches Exactly how to guage distance ot target and how to kill that target. even up to 1600 Meters.

    If you want to know more about other sniper rifles, read down the thread. some guy has done the calibration, based on the intial guys post technique, with other rifles.

    Worth bookmarking for those interested in learning to snipe efffectively, at range, in ArmA.

    (and because forum spell checkers are a hassle) : )

    I actually spell just fine. But my typing skills are the pits.

                Yes... it is blurry. Here's the original page with the unzoomed version: http://www.mildot.com/testdrive.htm (blurry and small ;))

                  Actually, I did not notice the first time when I looked at your image that it was actually a flash animation that allowed me to move the strips to recalculate actual different shots.

                  Blurry? Yep. cool? Yep..

                    I now understand how to calculate the distance-to-target (left slider), but I don't understand how to calculate bullet drop... anyone get that?

                      I believe you need to know the weight of your ammunition and things like that. but if you use the left slider to calculate range, you can then use the charts on the forum discussion in first post to find how high to aim up(or low).

                      Heres the chart
                      Range --M24 pips -----------M107 pips --MK12 pips
                      200 -----¾ low --------------2.5 low -----1 low
                      300 -----0 -------------------2 low ------½ low
                      400 -----¾ high -------------1 low
                      500 -----1 ¾ high -----------1 high
                      600 -----2 ¾ high ----------1.5 high
                      700 -----4 high -------------2.5 high
                      800 -----5.2 high -----------3.5 high
                      900 -----6 high -------------5 high
                      1000 ----7.2 high -----------6.5 high
                      1100 ----9 high -------------9 high
                      1200 ----9.7 high -----------10.2 high
                      1300 ----12.5 high ----------12.2 high
                      1400 ----14.5 high ----------14.8 high
                      1500 ----15.5 high ----------16.5 high
                      1600 ----18.8 high ----------19 high

                        You guys might want to check out the SightAdjustment windage & elevation mod over at Armaholic. Can't link directly to the page, since it says I need 15 posts or more to insert url links, but the mod is easy to find using Search.

                        Got the tip from DereksDontRun, so thats one of my wishes granted. Now if only some decent ghillie suits could show up on the mod scene.

                          All that math is why I refused to go to sniper school when offered a slot.

                            Never would have though of measuring the target by pips. Good find.

                              Coz,
                              Maybe you know how I go about "opening" the file to get into the place to edit the keys and to change it to mils instead of MOA. I've been trying for 3 hours to figure this out and I'm getting rather frustrated. I've tried 5 of these programs that are suppossed to let me do it... Anyway, PM me or something if you know.
