    Today we would like to show you a new feature that we are going to add to the upcoming version. This is a quick post that I write in my lunch break, so let us come straight to the point. Check this:

    We are going to add new magazines with a special kind of bullet, similar to the tracer magazines. These ones are called "8G Bullet Cam Mags" and will connect to your XM8 after each shot. For now, four magazines have been implemented:

    • 12.7 mm 5Rnd Bullet Cam Mag - for GM6 Lynx 12.7 mm
    • 9.3 mm 10Rnd Bullet Cam Mag - for Cyrus 9.3mm
    • .408 7Rnd Bullet Cam Mag - for M320 LRR .408
    • .338 LM 10Rnd Bullet Cam Mag - for MAR-10 .338

    These 8G Bullet Cam Mags will be of high quality, rare to find in loot and expensive to buy. They will only work when zooming in with a scope and only if the proper magazines are loaded. Some of these calibers penetrate wood and metal, so it will be possible to get a visual sneak peak of certain bases.

    Since this feature depends on special magazines, server owners can decide whether to implement this or not.

    Hope you like it!

    Its nice if your into that kind of thing, but what about a more advanced vehicle repair and refuelling system? Or even animal hunting or fishing, then gutting and cooking for food, I thought exile was meant to be a prisoner survivalist game? seems to me that it's straying away from that a bit these days? don't get me wrong I'm not knocking your work guys because it is truly epic, but I personally feel that there are other things that need addressing before something like this.

    Please don't take offence because its just my opinion.

    Thank you. I always wanted to have something like this in Arma, so I made it. If people do not like it, they can choose to not use it. It is primarily meant for the PvP Action servers. The hardcore-survivalishies will probably have little use for it.

    Classic. Serve people a pizza and they will ask for a burger, too. But: I am not saying I am not working on this and I am also not saying I am... :)

    Cool feature, but I honestly will never have a use for it.  Seems like something drummed up for youtube kill cams, and that's about it.   Good to see new features being implemented all the time still.  Keep it up! :)

    Well @Eichi if you offering a pizza and 8g bullet cams, I'll take it for all cup, massi, and RHS sniper rounds too. Lmao j/k I think it'll be a great feature for exile. Also have you thought of airburst sniper rounds. So a player can hit a target behind cover?

    Why not a spy bullet? Not damage only to ground in something and we can control the camera with xm8, not forever (or server restart), maybe with a battery, 5 min or less, i don't know is just an idea

    Do you mind giving people class names when you release stuff like this? I can't locate them anywhere and I've just gotten to the point where I'm frustrated as fuck and about to just forget adding them all together.

    I disagree and agree with your point @wilderness 

    Improvements on the survival aspect of the game are always welcome but, I like these very unique ideas too. 

    The had get might be fun but let's be honest here. Don't we already have too many weapon related things in the game ( plus the weapon mods )?

    We really need some things like at least animals...asking to be able to farm might be too much but that's possible too. I mean this game is about survival but up until now it's just about surviving the next mass shooting and not about how to feedback myself. If i was in a situation like Exile i would prioritize surviving and then maybe fighting for food. Every mod so far ( Exile and the other mod with E, DayZ and so on ) have offered nothing so far except maybe the occasional steak you could harvest from the pigs, rabbits and sheep and a bit of fishing in DayZ mod and E...*cough*

    Hahaha whatever mate, if you look closely my question was polite, and why would I waste my time being frustrated over this?
