Breaking Point is a multiplayer open world zombie apocalypse survival mod, focusing on both PVP and PVE elements.

  • Faction class system with eight unique, playable factions. Each faction has unique perks and drawbacks. Some factions are friendly to others, some not so much. Most factions have custom global faction chat so you can work together.
  • Full unique scoring and leveling system, tied to the faction systems.
  • Basebuilding/baseraiding with a full construction system for creating Safehouses (Havens).
  • Loot stashes you can build and hide in the world to get geared fast.
  • A large range of modern and historic, realistic weapons with customized ammunition, including tranquilizer, subsonic and various other types.
  • Zombies that react to visual and audio environmental movements/sounds.
  • Dynamic loot systems that keep players guessing and exploring for supplies.
  • Super crates providing top tier surprises.
  • Full custom medical systems with bleeding, surgery options and more.
  • Hunt and gut animals and build a campfire to prepare and cook the food or boil water.
  • A full list of custom gear made just for BreakingPoint.
  • Persistent vehicles that can be upgraded/repaired with a toolbox.
  • Server events such as helicrashes and care package drops.
  • Take enemies hostage. Gut them alive or feed them tainted zombie meat.
  • Find and tame a pet dog that will travel with you, help you hunt for animals and alert you to enemy players.
  • A large range of compatible maps, included with the mod.

The Arma 3 version of the mod began development in August 2013. Official servers closed in 2017. BreakingPoint can still be played with community hosted servers! Just search for 'breakingpoint' or 'breaking point' in the Arma 3 launcher and join a server. This mod cannot be hosted locally or LAN. It requires a server to work. See the source code link below for instructions for how to host a server.

You can create your own server by running an Arma 3 server. Instructions are on the GitHub, but if you do not know how to run a basic Arma 3 server first I would learn that first.

You need to speak the server owner of the server you are trying to play on.

Are here any game played?

Lion... you cannot use additional mods with BreakingPoint unless a specific server owner adds them. The BreakingPoint mod already has over 200 custom weapons. You cannot add weapon mods since the loot tables in BreakingPoint Mod define what can spawn in the world.
