Thread: How do you use the Laser Designator?

  1. #1

    Question How do you use the Laser Designator?

    Sorry about the other vague post.

    I don't use ACE.

    What keypresses control the Laser Designator?

    Left mouse shows a red dot, but then I can't find any keypress to continue with lacing the target.

    Using ArmaIIOA v1.57.

    The red dot IS the laser..
    Some ordnance can be locked and fired to it.

    Just hold the red dot on your target. A GBU should do the rest.

    Just aiming at something with a laser does not make anything go boom, you need another unit to shoot at the designated spot, or script something yourself.

    Depends on how long a aircraft with a GBU on board or a SADARM Artillery round needs to get there..the laser designator does nothing on its one exept marking the target for the Seeker.

    make sure you have the soflam, make sure you have batteries, select it in the action mean (weapon soflam), then press your aim button, and click.

    Do you know how crazy Arma 2 would be if it really was like that?! Just go around rampaging with a laser.
