The Tactical Battlefield mod provides Team vs Team (real players) game play features to Arma 3 with immersive new game modes and missions, within a standardised environment and consistent rules. Tactical Battlefield takes teamwork and tactics to a new level.


  • Community
    Tactical Battlefield already has an established community of players who regularly play, communicate, and coordinate together in teams, sharing tactics, support, and resources and doing everything they can to shoot, kill, and blow each other up in nail-biting, edge-of-your-seat, gritty combat!

  • Missions
    Around 50x Team vs Team multiplayer missions ranging in size from Tiny to Huge, with specially-designed main bases and in-built mission voting feature, spread across many different terrains and themes.

  • Game modes
    • Advance and Secure (A&S)
      Both sides fight tooth-and-nail to dominate objectives in this dynamic and challenging game mode, or until the enemy is worn down to the nub and their 'tickets' run out.
    • Attack and Defend (A&D)
      Like A&S, but one side is on the Defensive and occupies key positions while the other side Attacks. Lost objectives can never be re-captured. Failure to capture a single objective by the attacking team will result in defeat.
    • Search and Destroy (S&D)
      Gather intel (documents & maps) by searching bodies, seek out and destroy Resistance weapons caches amidst suicide-bombers and Vehicle Borne Improvised Explosive Devices (VBIED).

  • Roles
    Teamwork-focused gear restrictions with pre-configured but customisable loadouts, including Squad Leader, Medic, Engineer, Light Anti-Tank, Heavy Anti-Tank, Marksman, Sniper, Crewman, Pilot etc. Say goodbye to AT Sniper Pilots!

  • Suppression effect
    By suppressing your enemy with accurate fire, he will temporarily experience gradual shake and vision blur, enabling realistic infantry tactics for suppression fire and assault elements. This code is exclusive, has been developed specifically for Tactical Battlefield, and has been tested, tweaked, and approved by about 40 testers.

  • Wind effects on ballistics
    Marksmanship is now a real skill with support for the server-side VTS ballistics addon.

  • Squad Management and map features
    Join or create a Squad with a customised call-sign, and recruit new members. Toggle player name-tags. Designate fire teams and leaders and coordinate with other Squads. With special map features, assign orders, report enemy, request support.

  • Logistics
    Transporting assets using the cargo system, eg. loading containers into towed trailers.

  • Outposts and respawns
    Deploy a respawn point or build your own fortified Forward Outposts with Hesco barriers, barbed wire and mounted weapons.

  • Advanced Medical
    Includes diagnosis, CPR, Adrenaline auto-injectors, morphine and bandages.

  • Vehicle Maintenance System
    Rearm, repair and refuel APCs, tanks, helicopters, and planes.

One of the best mod i ever played on Arma, no idea why server population is so low, i think this mod don't have enought comunication, because when i see so much players on KOTH i am pretty sure that tacbf could have lot more players !

Awsome mod, just sad no enought players !

Everyone shoud definitively gives a try for this mod, it's the best PVP i ever made on this game !
