Shoulder-mounted Light

In 1 collection by Feint
10 items
This is a light that is attached to your shoulder. Also known as a flashlight, dive light or a torch, this light keeps your hands free to perform other tasks while you swim or shoot or plant explosives. Currently, this is clientside only. Lights will not be visible on other units in multiplayer environments.


  • works on land and underwater
  • keeps your hands free to perform other tasks
  • 3x brightness levels (+ on and off)
  • white color for general tasks
  • red color to preserve night vision and navigation
  • blue color for tracking blood trails and map reading
  • green color for hunting (won't spook prey)
  • forward and back (up/down) adjustability
  • custom sounds
  • customizable controls via Configure Addons menu (CBA)
  • Go into Controls Menu > Configure Addons
  • Select "Shoulder-Mounted Light" from dropdown menu
  • Customize controls to your taste or leave as default
  • Use these controls to activate the light in game

  • If you get into a vehicle, the light will stay outside of the vehicle until you turn it off and back on. Brightness adjustment won't work while in a vehicle at this time.
  • Turning on the light will activate the "weapon rest" opportunity thing.

Thanks for your interest but these questions have been asked and answered a few times before and are somewhat covered in the description above. Please see previous comments for more indepth answers. Short answer, no it's not MP compatible. It's not easily done because of engine limitations with MP games. I.e. it's possible to see the light, but as soon as you start moving around, it looks jank. I don't typically make ACE 3 alternate versions of my addons/mods.

is it not now? i havent tested it but my assumption is this is just a script that spanws an arma flashlight on your shoulder so it should be compatible with people whod ont have the mod

actually now that i think about it, it is coloured, so, maybe not.
any chance of a 'lite' version that works like this?

Will it ever be MP compatible?

2 questions,
- does this work in a way that those withought the mod still see the slight ebing emitted from your shoulder
- any panned or current ACE3 functionality / alternate version?

Thanks man. I think you missed my comback by a while as I'm not very active right now with A3, though I was about 6 months ago. :) Either way, thanks so much for your many years of support. It really means a lot to me. :) Happy holidays!
