unit: Object - unit to add weapon to.
weaponClassName: String - weapon Classname (found in CfgWeapons).
quantity: Number - amount of magazines.
type: Number or String - (Optional, default 0)
  • Number - Index of magazine name that should be used - found in magazines = {} array.
  • String - Magazine name to be used.
Return Value:
String - primary(!) muzzle name of weapon.


Example 1:
Add 6 dual-purpose magazines and the underwater gun to the player:
[player, "arifle_SDAR_F", 6] call BIS_fnc_addWeapon;
Example 2:
Adds 2 × 30 Rnd Stanag Tracer (Red) magazines to bluforUnit, with an Mk20_F:
[bluforUnit, "arifle_Mk20_F", 2, 1] call BIS_fnc_addWeapon;
Example 3:

This function only returns the primary muzzle name of a gun. For more info on how to select guns' secondary muzzle names (like an underhand grenade launcher), view the notes on selectWeapon.
