Brought to you by none other than Shack Chatty's Andrew 'Dslyecxi' Gluck of Shack Tactical.


Bohemia Interactive's Arma 3 continues to have a dedicated following long after its launch in 2012. The tactical shooter has been getting regular updates, including a 3D Scenario Editor earlier this year. Now, the company has released a community guide describing the ins and outs of recon, featuring Shack Chatty's own Andrew "Dslyecxi" Gluck of Shack Tactical.

"The new video explores what to look out for when scanning the terrain, as well as the various methods of 'recon' in Arma 3, ranging from infantry using binoculars and magnified scopes, to helicopters with magnified sensor suites, and Unmanned Air Vehicles (UAV) or Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGV)," according to the press release.

Of course, Dslyecxi has been into Arma and creating guides for some time. Bohemia was so impressed with his work that they hired him as designer for two years before he left In 2014, Around the time that he departed, he created a guide on air assault. There is a complete Community Guide playlist on Arma 3 YouTube channel.
