* From the ''Arma 3'' [=v1.12=] patch changelog: "''[[http://imgur.com/4h0DtVq Fixed: CTD when a rabbit opens a vehicle's inventory]]''."
* The [[GameMod modability]] of [=ArmA=] series naturally results in several hilarious inventions:
** The fan-made [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=coRoRTWPb-4&feature=related Battlebus]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PdKwsWKP1dA A gigantic mecha]] made out of a lighthouse, AA guns and bunch of in-game props slapped together with [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Assault_Amphibious_Vehicle AAV]]s for feet.

* The existence of [[http://store.steampowered.com/app/288520/ ArmA 3 Kart]], [[AscendedMeme an 2014 April Fools joke turned real.]]
* While it, sadly, doesn't seem to have made it into the release version of the Jets DLC, the dev build of the USS Freedom and its catapult launch system was [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nxfyTTYVBa4 a little indiscriminate in what it could launch]].



!Campaign

* ''ARMA: Armed Assault'', the ''Queen's Gambit'' expansion. One word: "[[GettingCrapPastTheRadar Titsabella]]".
* "Hey, I'm the fuckin' boss here!"
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=70tuAXKmuoU&t=45s Tanny's demonstration of Scottish slang]]
* At the start of the first campaign mission in ''Arma 3'', the player can have their character walk around [[spoiler:the base before hopping into the helicopter]], and one of the scenery props... is [[http://i.imgur.com/zFxbRQ2.jpg THIS]].
** This was inspired by a real-life sign at a US Army FOB in Iraq, which included a final rule: "Do not steal this sign, asshole!"
** Several of the signs, post-it notes and general guidelines show the relaxed enviroment of the troops at the time and are good for a chuckle or two. Such as "One task a day keep the Lt. at bay" or a picture of the AAF top brass with the sign "asshole alert".
* In Camp Maxwell (''Pain: you can't get enough'') you can hear your fellow survivors express their opinions on the current situation. One of them is the following, regarding the chain of command:
-->'''Soldier 1:'''' Who the hell is [[TheCaptain this Miller guy]]?.
-->'''Soldier 2:''' British special forces. SBS or some shit.
-->'''Soldier 1:''' Yeah, CTRG, whatever the hell that means, for all we know [[ClosestThingWeGot is the fucking royal janitor]]. I mean, who died and put him in charge?.
-->'''Soldier 2:''' *Beat* [[ColonelBadass Mckinnon]]
* Kerry's first operation in command of a squad consist of ambushing a convoy to secure an enemy supply truck. If you happen to screw up the ambush, destroying the supply truck beyond repair, Kerry will mutter a resigned "[[NeverLiveItDown Oh, I'm never gonna hear the end of this]]"
* The second mission of the second campaign episode in ''Arma 3'' has Kerry linking up with guerrillas on Altis, only to then be ordered into their offroad. Along the way, after being counseled about pretending to be civilians to get through enemy checkpoints, [Kerry asks why the guerrillas ordered him to drive and he's told in no uncertain terms: "''[[BrutalHonesty You are the one they will shoot first]]''."
-->'''Kerry''': "''[[SarcasmMode Oh. Great. I'm honored.]]''"
* [[PluckyComicRelief Salvo]] ''really'' seems to like getting on Truck's nerves.
** During the meeting in the jungle temple:
-->'''Salvo''': Hey, Truck. ''[points to a giant statue of a frowning face]'' Kinda looks like you!
-->'''Truck''': Fuck off, Sal.
** When trying to make sense of an unknown enemy attacking them:
-->'''Truck''': Who are these guys? why are they targeting us?.
-->'''Salvo''': How could they not, Truck? [[HoYay You have such pretty eyes.]]
** After [[ButtMonkey Truck taking a bullet for the second mission in a row]]:
-->'''Salvo''': What is it with you and bullets lately?
* While [[BadassInDistress extracting Keystone]], after [[spoiler: both your exfil points go to hell]]:
-->'''Salvo''': WHAT THE HELL DO WE DO NOW!?
-->'''Riker''': IF ANYONE HAS ANY IDEAS FEEL FREE TO SHARE!
-->[[spoiler:'''Miller''']]: What was your insertion?
-->'''Riker''': *'''{{Beat}}'''* Of course! '''The boats!'''. [[MissionControl Watchtower]] we're on our way to our original infil point.
-->[[spoiler:'''Miller''']]: I thought you guys were rescuing me.
* When the IDAP (a RedCross expy) team is dismanteling a mine field, they run into some bumps, namely: [[spoiler: they forgot to bring the tools]]. After the toolkit is delivered by drone later:
-->'''Andy''': when you get that, make sure to check the lower pocket for...
-->'''Nate''': Jesuschrist man, if you forgot to pack the...
-->'''Andy''': One time! that happened just once! relax, you'll be dicking around with landmines in no time.
* Explaining to the reporter how he disarms the mines.
-->'''Nate''': Now that i have the toolkit and i located them, i simply crawl towards the mines and disable them.
-->'''kate''': Surely it has to be more involved than that.
-->'''Nate''': Yeah, well. I may have glossed over the part where they can, you know... ''explode''.
* After succesully locating enemy positions by [[spoiler: talking to the locals]]:
-->'''Splender''': Fucking-A! thank god for sgt. Hale and his high school french lessons
* In one of the Tactical Ops DLC campaings, shows the early days of the FIA resistance movement long before the events of the main story. The player Character is not, however, a young WideEyedIdealist NewMeat, but Kael Mavros, a grizzled OldSoldier that deserted from the AAF and has a ton of experience in battle. Funnily enough, he's such an asset to have that most squad leaders want him to join them, culminating in this:
-->'''After taking a convoy and regrouping before assaulting a nearby town'''.
-->'''Sigma-2:''' ''[[AnnoyingYoungerSibling (sheepishly)]]'' Mav... can we go with you?.
-->'''Mavros:''' ''[[AloofOlderBrother (sternly)]]'' Get the fuck back to your group.
-->'''Sigma-2:''' ''pleaaaase!.''
-->'''Mavros:''' Ugh... Do as i say, when i say it!.
