Addons

Arma 3 Launcher Addons.png


The Arma 3 Launcher Addons menu allows you to configure Steam Workshop addon content. From here you can see a list of all your subscribed content.

  • Load Order: Allows you toggle the orientation of the addon list to ascending or descending simply by clicking on it. This list indicates the order that they are loaded into Arma 3. Load order is vital for some addons as they may cause undesired behaviour if not set correctly.
  • Preset: Here you can save, load and name various presets of addons. This makes switching addon sets much faster rather than ticking boxes each time.
  • Addon List: Complete list of all subscribed addons. To view various addon options and information, click on a list item. Here you can: allow or disallow auto updating, open the addons page in steam, open the addon installation folder, re-download the addon, and unsubscribe and delete the addon.
