Addon Info – PADDLE MOD


This mod modifies most boats by giving them a killswitch for the engine and the ability to paddle the boat around silently. You can also use ropes with the boats for landmarking while swimming and as an anchor. The Zodiac-style boats receive improved maneuverability and engine power. You can also bury or camouflage the Zodiacs using bushes found nearby as well as use the ropes of the Zodiacs for towing.


  • Bury the boat in soft surfaces like sand and dirt
  • In-game key menu (config addons)

  • Attach ropes to other boats
