Arma Badges

ArmA Badges & Courses

At [RIP] Rusty In Places we have badges which are awarded to members who have completed courses or shown proficiency in certain skill catagories. Below you will find a list of badges available to players of the ArmA series of games.

Please note that any member can nominate another member for a badge but only the Game Commander can award these badges.

If any member wishes to advance to a new qualification, please speak with your Platoon Leader or Platoon 2IC about booking a course.
