30 Great Games Like Arma 3

Our experts have spent time searching for great games similar to Arma 3 and have found the following:

Arma 3 is a realistic military simulator. Unlike games such as Call of Duty or Battlefield Arma focuses on realism. Rather than blockbuster effects, it spends time simulating the impact of carrying heavy guns and equipment, realistic ammunition-consumption and terrain. This also includes a simulated impact of injuries. For example, if a player is shot in the leg, they will move slower and limp until they get medical attention.

Unfortunately, Arma 3 is not available on Android, Mac, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S or iOS. However, we recommend the following games that offer a similar experience or theme, and at a lower age rating:
