How To Make A Carbomb In Arma 3
By Long Chung
Learn how to rig a car to detonate on engine activation.
Setting Up The Carbomb
To download the carbomb script, follow these instructions:

  1. Create a file called "carbomb.sqf"

  2. Paste the following contents inside of the file:
    hint "Vehicle Now Armed"; _this select 0 addEventHandler [ "Engine", { params ["_this select 0", "_engineOn"]; _this select 0 setDamage 1; } ];

  3. Move the carbomb.sqf script to the directory your mission file/scenario file is in.

  4. Open the scenario in the editor.

  5. Open the object menu on any car you wish to add the behaviour to.

  6. In the "init code" box, add this:

    _thisVehicle = vehicleVarName this; this addAction ["Arm With Carbomb", "carbomb.sqf", ["_thisVehicle"], 1, false, true, "", "true", 5, false, "", ""];

Congratulations! You have set it up. Now walk up to the car in game, open the action menu, and select "Arm With Carbomb".

The next time the engine starts, the car will explode, killing whoever is inside, and around it.

It only works in situations. If server operators want to implement it than they can do that, but in a situation, no.
