Mod Details action - use the "Report" button to report the Mod to Bohemia Interactive. The report reason can be one of:

  • Inappropriate content - e.g purposely offensive, warcrime promotion content etc.
  • Offensive language
  • Misleading/non-functional item - e.g game-crashing, or a vehicle mod only adding music and no vehicles
  • Other - e.g ripped content
Do not report a mod for a wrong reason (e.g "I don't like it")! Misusing the report function on purpose may lead to Workshop usage sanctions.
  • Reporting a mod removes it from the local machine and hides it from Workshop view.
  • It is important to provide as much valid information as possible.
