Arma Reforger
Release Date: May 17, 2022
Developer: Bohemia Interactive
Publisher: Bohemia Interactive
Series: ArmA
Platforms: PC, Xbox Series X
Genre: Tactical shooter, military sandbox

Arma Reforger is a small multiplayer-focused game currently in Early Access, developed and published by Bohemia Interactive (BI) for the PC, as well as for the Xbox Series X/S; the first time again after twenty years since their port of Operation Flashpoint: Elite (released in 2005) for Xbox. Officially released to the public on the same day as it was announced by BI on May 17, 2022 via Twitch live stream, Arma Reforger was initially leaked between the end of 2020 and beginning of 2021, before BI acknowledged they were working on a new project. It is intended to act as a testbed for the game's new Enfusion engine and provide feedback for the upcoming game Arma 4.

Set in 1989 during the Cold War, players can join either the US or Soviet factions to fight island-wide skirmishes or smaller take-and-hold scenarios on the re-imagined and fictional mid-Atlantic 52kmĀ² island of Everon from Operation Flashpoint: Cold War Crisis. While the game can be unofficially considered as a "remastered" version of Operation Flashpoint, currently it is not meant to recreate the complete original game on the Enfusion engine, but rather serve mainly for bug-fixing, multiplayer testing, and new modding tools.

As per BI's intentions, Arma Reforger will receive updates and support for 12 months after release maximum, after which the developers will focus only on Arma 4.

The following weapons appear in the video game Arma Reforger:


Beretta M9

The Beretta M9 is the standard issue sidearm for the US faction.

Makarov PM

The Makarov PM is the standard issue sidearm for the Soviet faction.

Assault Rifles


The AK-74 is the standard issue rifle for the Soviet faction. It can mount a GP-25 grenade launcher and can either feed a standard Ak-74 30-round bakelite mag but can also feed a 45-round RPK-74 mag. A camouflaged AK-74 is available as an official sample mod weapon by Bohemia Interactive, this version holds 200 rounds in a magazine and fires explosive fireballs.

Following its addition in update 1.1, the AK-74N also appears for the Soviets, mainly in the hands of NCOs. Like the classic, it can mount a GP-25 grenade launcher and feed from either magazine, but (being an N variant) it features the "Warsaw pact rail" on the side, allowing it to use the 1P29, a Soviet copy of the British SUIT scope. Technically, it should also be able to use the PGO scope for the RPG-7 and the PSO scope used with the SVD, but Reforger limits each Soviet weapon to its intended optic.

The M16A2 is the standard issue rifle for the US faction. An M203-equipped, Colt 4x20 carry handle scope, or an Aimpoint 2000 version are also available.

Colt Model 727

The Colt Model 727 appears in-game as the "M16 Carbine" (or conflictingly, the "M16A2 Carbine" in promotional materials) after the "Resistance Ops" patch (a misnomer as the M16 carbine was never an official name given by Colt). It is used by the American forces and unlike the M16A2, the Model 727 is only found in arsenal boxes. It can also mount an M203, Colt 4x20 carry handle scope, or an Aimpoint 2000, and comes in three colours (standard, olive, camo), like the M16A2.

It can be identified as a 727 and not a 723 (which also came out post-M16A2, saw service side-by-side the A2, and was even referred to as the "M16A2 carbine" colloquially, but has the receiver setup as an M16A1E1, as opposed to an actual M16A2 like the 727).

Machine Guns


The M249 appears as the US faction's sole squad automatic weapon, it comes default with its 200-round belt and can use a bipod if prone. Its fire rate has been artificially decreased to 800 rounds rather than the M249's actual fire rate of 850 rounds per minute.

FB Grot B16 FB-A0

A FB Grot B16 FB-A0 fitted with a green finish, appears in the game, referred to only as "Sample Weapon." It is an official mod weapon by Bohemia that serves as a demonstration for custom weapon mods. It uses 5.56x45mm NATO ammunition and has folding iron sights. It reused almost the same model as the "Promet" from ArmA III, and would be anachronistic by 28 years for Reforger's Cold War setting.
