I'm in a point in the Single-Player Campaign mission where I need to control a UAV and take out a target. I have successfully taken control of the UAV turrets, but when I press Mouse 1 (Fire), a red star appears on my screen, and clicking Mouse 1 again removes the star.

Can someone give me a detailed explanation on how to use the UAV in ArmA 3? Most importantly, how can I fire my UAV turret at an enemy?

(Please explain this as you would a child, as this is the first time I have ever played an ArmA game.)

    I don't have Arma3, but this UAV controls guide might help? It seems like lots of players find the UAV intractable. – SevenSidedDie Nov 5 '13 at 18:11
  • @SevenSidedDie Hm, it has some information that may be useful, may not. I'll try it, and see if it works. – avestar101 Nov 6 '13 at 5:23

You probably already know this, but for future reference... the UAV you have doesn't have any guns, just a laser pointer. Lase your target and the other team will start firing at them. If you turn on infrared you can actually see the laser dot.
