Introduction to mission editing

The mission (PBO) files are found in specific folders. You will need know the location of the mission to add additional files such as the briefings and/or scripts. There are both official and 3rd party tools that can assist you with your mission editing. (See Official Scripting Tools or 3rd Party Scripting Tools)

Available scripting commands can be found on these pages:

A new user mission can contain the following files:

  • An Overview.html file which will appear on the notebook before you start a mission for Single player missions.
  • A Briefing.html file displays a synopsis of what to do to complete the mission.
  • A Description.ext file which allows you to define many things in your mission.


The Official ArmA mission editor is used to build or modify mission files.
