Known Issues

This page contains list of known issues and possible workarounds.

Also, see our Feedback Tracker for reported issues. Visit Arma Reforger FAQ for common troubleshooting.

General bugs

  • The movement of the player camera isn't fluent when playing with a controller and a 30 FPS limit.
  • Tasks placed by GM don't disappear when the required objectives are completed.
  • It isn't possible to use Steam overlay to connect to a player who is hosting an in-game server.
  • Entering a turret while sprinting deforms the character.
  • Using the RMB in the quick-heal menu in the inventory darkens the screen.
  • Vehicles get sometimes stuck in the First gear. Stopping and restarting the engine fixes the issue.
  • Switching seats in a vehicle at the same time as exiting the vehicle can break your character controller.
  • Two players getting in a vehicle at the same time break the character controller of one of them and may block the seat until the player disconnects.
  • Two players switching seats to the driver seat at the same time can cause a minor desync.
  • It isn't possible to activate Free building on a truck that was inactive for more than half an hour.

Addon downloading gets sometimes stuck or fails when connecting to a server

  • Addon download gets stuck if you try to download an older version of an addon you already have downloaded.
  • Addon download gets skipped if you cancel and reinitiate connection to the server before the addon download finishes or gets stuck.

If you are certain your download got stuck:

  • First try to restart the game and connect to the server again.
  • If it doesn't help, cancel the download/connection process.
  • Try to initiate the connection to the same server again → You will see a list of addons that need to be downloaded/updated → Those are likely the addons causing the problem.
  • Go to Workshop and find the addons from the previous step and delete them.
  • Restart the game and connect to the same server again. The download should finish successfully.

  • Xbox storage space for addons is limited to 10 GB, blocking some players from downloading all the mods they'd like to have.
  • Downloading of add-ons might fail if a player downloads mods in the background whilst doing other actions.
    • A workaround is to patiently wait in the downloading screen after initiating the mod download until it finishes.
    • If your addons get corrupted, and you're getting "Failed to start with the following mods" even after restarting the game, delete your addons from your device.
      • To do that on PC, navigate to the game profile folder (%USERPROFILE%\Documents\My Games\Arma Reforger) and delete the addon folder.
      • To do so on Xbox, hover over Arma Reforger in Xbox Home and press the View button, go to "Manage game and addons", and delete your Saved data.
  • Some addons can get deleted after deleting and redownloading an addon without restarting the game.
  • Servers fail to update addons during initiation. It is necessary to delete the addon and do a fresh install of the newer version.
  • Flickering deploy screen in Tutorial scenario. Workaround is to just press space to deploy.
  • Vehicle engine does not always starting when holding W. Try going backwards (S), holding R or looking at the start engine widget and holding F.
  • If two players get into the same seat at the same time, one of the players might be unable to control his character properly.
  • Eliminate target task might not spawn in Combat Ops.
  • Dead AI character might be rarely considered alive, blocking completion of Clear Area Combat Ops task.
