Footage from our first mission of June 14th's 'pFNG Session', in which we introduce new players to ShackTac as well as give established players changes to try out higher levels of leadership and various other things.
Who needs to tightly script and choreograph a promotional video when you can capture stuff like this merely by spectating a typical mission? :)
Q: What server am I playing Arma games on, who are these people, and can you join?
A: It's the private server for my community, Shack Tactical. As of 2014 we've been around for eight years, and I wouldn't trade it for anything - we have a fantastic memberbase and it makes for amazing gameplay in Arma and elsewhere. You can read more about us here: http://www.shacktac.com
Q: What mods does ShackTac use in Arma?
A: I keep a list of them here: http://dslyecxi.com/shacktac_wp/shack...
Q: Does ShackTac play mostly coop or mostly PvP/adversarial in Arma?
A: We do a mix of about 70% adversarial and 30% coop - both offer unique experiences and are a blast to play.
Q: How long have you been playing the Arma series?
A: I've been here from the start, with my Operation Flashpoint experience beginning with the demo's release in 2001. I went into the US Marine Corps shortly after (no relation!) and in 2004 I started playing OFP in multiplayer. 2006 saw me found ShackTac, which started in OFP and then transitioned through Arma 1, Arma 2, and finally, Arma 3. I hope to continue this for a long time into the future, as well as share the ride with viewers like you, as corny as that sounds!
Q: What system am I filming all of my Arma and VBS footage on?

Make sure to read my channel FAQ, it answers various questions and sets some expectations of behavior:
Q: I have a question about your channel or content that I haven't seen answered elsewhere - what's the best way to ask it?
A: I maintain a blog where I've answered hundreds of different questions relating to ShackTac, Arma, etc - you can find that here:
I also answer questions in my comments routinely, as I enjoy that aspect of things. If I don't answer, please don't take it personally - there's a lot going on and I can't always get to everything. My channel followers do a good job of answering the more common questions, too, and I thank them for that!
I've authored the definitive guide on Arma 3 tactics, techniques, and procedures - check it out! Hard copies are also available.
