Goko ballistic Impact

Damage mechanics implementation for arma 3: designed to simulate hmd & headgear destruction with headshots.

Author: göko the outsider chief of randomness
Bohemia Interactive forums thread []

Requirements: None
Version: v1.15
Signed: Yes
Has to be loaded both on server and on client in order to work on MP

  • Visual effects for bullet hit on metal surfaces: 3 different profiles (low, normal, high) for "particles" under Video Settings.
  • Brand new mechanic for A3: headshots destroy head gear according to bullet caliber.
  • Brand new visual and audio effects.
  • Doesn't kill performance - almost zero impact
  • Randomized particle effects for authentic simulation
  • HMDs can be broken with a non fatal shot. This depends on used weapon type and damage value.
  • Helmets can be removed & destroyed with caliber equal to and/or higher than 7.62
  • Other factors such as helmet's armor level taken into account with weapon caliber for a better simulation
  • 5 different sound effect for HMD destruction played random each time
  • 12 different sound effect for headshots
  • Performance: demand of this add-on is minimal as It uses no loops and nothing is added to Arma scheduler

  • CBA is not mandatory but you can have addon options menu if you have CBA loaded
  • Variables and their defaults for editing without cba:
    profileNamespace getVariable "gokobi_var_AllowedCaliber";
    profileNamespace getVariable "gokobi_var_onoffswitch";

Headshots on unit cause removal of protective glass, head mounted display and/or helmet of unit depending on damage and armor level, spawns particle effects accordingly.
Factors such as Item present or not, helmet's armor level, weapon caliber and 'chance' taken into account in order to simulate custom particle FX.

Yes It is fully compatible / doesn't break anything with ACE3
Does this works with ACE?

Fantastic work for sure! Im having a bit of a problem. I have CBA and your mod loaded and running correctly, but i can't find the configuration inside addons options to remove some features. It doesn't show up for me. Am i doing something wrong?

Dope mod, been using for a while. I want to help create a module for zombies that creates the headmeat1 and headmeat2 particle when they are shot, do you know how to activate particles when shooting a zombie?

I would. If somebody provide me some head meshes with deformation of impact, textured.
