Title: Arma 2 Warfare Missions: A Guide to the Ultimate Military Simulation
Arma 2 Warfare is a game mode that combines team-based multiplayer and real-time strategy elements. It is available in Arma 2, Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead and Arma 2: Combined Operations. In this mode, two or three sides fight for control of the whole map, capturing cities, building bases and commanding units. The side that loses their headquarters loses the game.
Arma 2 Warfare can be played in many ways: as a singleplayer scenario, as a cooperative or competitive multiplayer battle, or as a team-deathmatch with players taking the roles of commanders and group leaders. The game mode offers a lot of customization options, allowing players to change the scenario features, such as the number of cities, the resources, the weather, the time limit and more.
This guide will provide an overview of the basic features and mechanics of Arma 2 Warfare, as well as some tips and tricks to help you succeed in this challenging and immersive military simulation.
Starting the Scenario
To start a Warfare scenario, you need to select one of the available Warfare missions from the mission list. There are several official Warfare missions included in Arma 2 and its expansions, such as Chernarus Warfare, Takistan Warfare, Zargabad Warfare and more. You can also download user-made Warfare missions from various websites and forums.
Once you select a Warfare mission, you can adjust the mission parameters to suit your preferences. You can choose the side you want to play as (BLUFOR, OPFOR or Resistance), the difficulty level, the number of AI players and teams, the initial resources and money, the victory conditions and more. You can also enable or disable certain features, such as fast travel, base building, tasks and missions, diplomacy and more.
After setting up the mission parameters, you can start the scenario. You will spawn at your side's headquarters (HQ), which is a mobile base that can be moved around by the commander. The HQ is vital for your side's survival, as losing it means losing the game. You can access various functions from the HQ, such as buying units and vehicles, building structures, requesting support and more.
The main objective of Arma 2 Warfare is to capture and hold all the cities on the map. Cities are marked by flags on the map and on your HUD. Capturing a city requires having more friendly units than enemy units inside its area for a certain amount of time. Captured cities provide supply points (SP), which are used to buy units and vehicles from your HQ or from barracks. Captured cities can also produce money, which is used to build structures and request support.
To capture cities, you need to move your units and vehicles into their area. You can do this by commanding them directly or by giving them waypoints on the map. You can also join other teams or create your own team and invite other players or AI to join you. Teams can share resources and communicate with each other using chat or voice.
Aside from capturing cities, you can also perform various tasks and missions to gain additional rewards or advantages. Tasks are simple objectives that are randomly generated by the game, such as destroying enemy vehicles, defending friendly cities or capturing enemy bases. Missions are more complex objectives that are assigned by the commander or by other players, such as assaulting enemy strongholds, sabotaging enemy facilities or rescuing hostages.
While capturing cities and completing tasks and missions are important for winning the game, you also need to defend your own territory from enemy attacks. You can do this by building defensive structures around your cities and bases, such as bunkers, towers, walls and mines. You can also request support from your HQ or from other players, such as artillery strikes, air strikes, reinforcements or supplies.
Team Leader Role
As a team leader, you have access to various features that allow you to command your team effectively. You can use the map to give waypoints to your units and vehicles, as well as to see the status of friendly and enemy forces. You can also use the radio menu to communicate with other teams or with your commander. You can request support from them or offer your assistance.
