Character Controls

Holstering: To holster to primary or secondary, simply press "4" on your keypad

Auto Run: You can make your character sprint by pressing "0"

Earplugs: There are 3 levels of earplugs. Simply press U to switch between each level as well as removing them

Surrendering: To put your hands on your head simply press "-"

The Interaction menu: This is used to interact with both players and your builds in game. To open it up simply press tab. By doing this everything that can be interacted with will highlight in green. Simply head over and use space to navigate the menu

Using Items: To use items that you have picked up, such as bandages, simply click on them and then apply in the top right shown here:

Journal: Redux has a journal system where you can type messages. Simply press the previous button in your inventory until you find a page that looks like this. The messages you write here will persist past logging out and server restarts.


The base building in Redux is still slightly limited due to its early access state, but you still can build some buildings as well as survival tools and storage crates.

To access the building you first need to make a building template. Open up your inventory and press the next button on the bottom right to view the building options

Once you have built a template of what you want it will come up in green. Use the building template like a storage unit and add the required items individually. Once you have met all the requirements the building will appear in front of you.

Make sure you have completed this before a restart however as a restart will delete the template along with all items inside.

As of right now you need to find all metal items (such as hardware boxes and scrap metal) in industrial loot spawns. Lumber and plywood are crafted in the menu and require wood logs. Take an axe and hit a tree to get these wood logs (It may take up to 20 hits with an axe to knock the tree down, so just keep at it).

Another way of storing gear is through campsites. You can find A-frame and Dome tents scattered around the map, and pitching them using the interaction menu will allow you to have a permanent area to store gear (Due to the early access state of the mod this may not be 100% reliable)

Task Force Radio

If you are already in our servers it means you have sorted out your task force radio on teamspeak. This is simply a tutorial on how to use the radios you find in game.

Once in game your teamspeak talk becomes your in game direct chat, while your Arma 3 talk becomes radio use. For example if you use voice activation on teamspeak, anything you say will now be heard in game. At the same time if you want to talk on your radio and have the default caps lock, simply press caps lock to broadcast your message.

The Radio:

Once you have found a radio press ctrl + P to bring it up

Firstly, the red shows your current channel. You can drag your mouse and clear this, then using the keys shown in green you can type in your desired channel. Once you have typed this in press the enter key at blue to confirm this selection. If you do not do this it will not work. Use your Arma 3 talk button (default is caps lock) to speak into the radio.

Most radios will work within a 5km radius, depending on which one you find.


Vehicle repair in DesolationREDUX is more complex than most ArmA 3 mods. While the old style or repair from DayZ Mod is there, including replacing individual parts of the vehicle one at a time, there is also the option to repair and remove parts. Using the Advanced Action System, players can identify which parts on the vehicle are damaged, the level of damage (color coded) and decide the path they wish to take in dealing with the part.


To identify which parts are damanged, the player simply hits TAB and the action menu activates. The individual parts on the vehicle will be shown, and each will be color coded based on damage percent.

  • Green   Green parts health is between 75% and 100%
  • Orange  Orange parts health is between 50% and 74%
  • Red    Red parts health is between 0% and 49%


To Select a part, simply hover your view over that part until the text gets bigger. Once you have the large text, hit SPACE BAR. This will bring up the action menu with the appropriate actions for that part.


There are three options for vehicle parts. Chose the appropriate action by highlighting it and hitting SPACE BAR. If all conditions are met, the player will conduct the action on the vehicle part.

  • Repair: Use the repair option if you have the resources necessary for repairing that part. Repairing only increases the part health by a set percentage.
  • Replace: Use replace option if you have a full part you wish to add onto the vehicle. You are REPLACING one part with another, and must have that full part in your inventory.
  • Remove: Use this to remove specific parts from a vehicle. This will place the removed part on the ground next to the player. Not all parts are removable, and some parts have a percent chance of being destroyed in the removal process.
