Arma 3

What is Arma 3?

ARMA 3 is an open world tactical shooter video game set in the near-future during the mid-2030s, where NATO forces deployed in the Greek islands of the Aegean Sea are trying to hold off a massive Iranian military offensive from the east. An alpha version of the game allows players to experience the game during development, as well as assist in development by reporting bugs and giving feedback on their experience.


The most used version is 1.00.109911, with over 0% of all installations currently using this version. Upon installation, it defines an auto-start registry entry which allows the program run on each boot for the user which installed it. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The main program executable is arma3battleye.exe. The software installer includes 78 files and is usually about 7.02 MB (7,357,813 bytes). ApplyUpdate.exe is the automatic update component of the software designed to download and apply new updates should new versions be released.
