Arma 3 Anatomy
Arma 3 is a tactical shooter video game. It has both single user as well as multi user mode.

We all will agree to his notion stating that the strong will dominate the weaker one and will come out to be the winner. The very notion applies to this virtual, harsh, blood clad world of Arma 3.In order to shine and win, one needs to SURVIVE and ADAPT. These actually are the 3 episodes of the game in question. Here again, we are entering the niche and picking up the episode of survival. We proceed to see the medical requirements for the same.
This open world military game will pose many challenges in front of you. You will get hurt, injured or even kill yourself. But if you can stand up again after getting hit, that is where you earn brownie points. In order to heal yourself you will need a first aid kit, used as FAK in the game.

Points To Remember
- FIRE – In case of fire, move away, though, you have armors to protect yourself, still it is dangerous. It is as dangerous as a bullet hit.Heep safe distance.
- FATIGUE – In this case, when the character starts breathing heavily, hold on, do not move, rest for a while. All other actions take long time to complete in case of fatigue. Current load can also be a reason.
- FALL AND HIT DAMAGE – The damage caused by falling from heights can be mitigated by using the armors. The damage caused, depends on the mass of the body and the speed.
- DAMAGE – Damage can again be reduced using the armors and also by using other safety gears like-a helmet, safety vest etc. The reason of the damage can be the bullets or explosives. Equip yourself properly as it is important to mitigate the affect because it negatively affects your movements.
- DROWNING – When you are under water for a long period of time and that too sans a re breather, there will be a crisis situation in terms of oxygen supply. Go to the surface fast and catch on to breath.
Hence, moving step by step, with a sound knowledge of all the shortcuts and commands to use the FAK – First Aid Kit will help you survive and emerge as a winner. Go, enjoy this virtual world.
