Trying out the compound bow in DayZ SP, Altis map, main branch of Arma 3 Beta.

The compound bow-arrow is a fun weapon to have; silent but deadly especially with headshots. You can take arrows and re-use them unlike firearms ammo. The compound bow can have optic attachments like RCO, ARCO. The bow can even use explosive tips.

Why Arma 3
Below are some reasons why one would consider playing the Arma 2 DayZ mod within the new Arma 3 RV-4 engine:

1) New shaders

2) Superb lighting, new volumetric clouds, new fog system

3) Unit ragdolls

4) Vehicle physics

5) Modular weapons and gear; easily swap weapon attachments such optics, suppressors, IR laser, flashlight

6) Numerous uniform, vests, headgears and goggles to play with, and

7) Undeniably impressive graphics



Altis island, one of the areas hit by a new and presently unknown infection which has wiped out most of the world’s population. You are one of the few on the planet who have survived and now you must search this new wasteland in order to fight for your life against what is left of the indigenous population, now infected with the disease. Go solo and take on the world as you choose your path in the brutal and chilling landscape using whatever means you stumble upon to survive.


– You are the only uninfected in Altis. Dispatch every single infected there is on the island. Use bare hands, small arms, big guns, bombs…anything you come across with.

– Take anything you can from the dead like backpacks, vests, headgear, weapons and ammo. Scavenge for food and other resources needed for survival.

Slay some more
– Oh yeah! This is my story. This is DayZ SP.
