Can anyone tell me which scopes are becoming the iron sight scopes or whatever the news is? Lots of rumors going around and I just wanted to know what the news is before Modding my guns

I don't think anyone knows. For all I know the person that said all this probably doesn't even work for them anymore. I hope they do fix it though because it sucks putting some of those scopes on certain guns.

I actually hope they don't change it. I went through a lot of trouble testing out which scopes I wanted to use on my weapons and really enjoy the ones I decided on. Now a few of those are at risk of becoming 3rd person scopes. What they should do is change the stabilization scopes over to 3rd person or add a new 3rd person scope altogether. Then give us the option to remove one mod at a time instead of all 4.

Yeah I can understand that too. It might make me dislike a few of my guns also but there are just certain guns I would like to get the bonus for but not be constrained so much when I ADS.

I used a Stabilization 2 sight on my AR and SMG. These are indeed 3rd person scopes, they give -0.20 accuracy and x0.90 movement accuracy (same stats as before). I believe this is the only 3rd person scope for AR/SMG/LMG. You cannot remove one mod at a time, it's all or nothing.

Or maybe they could just not change anything and add a couple new scopes.

That would be the best thing

Thank you for the info. So it seems the ones that give movement accuracy were made third person scopes, but I thought that original Dev thread also mentioned other AR sights, so those were unchanged?

I did see a picture earlier of a Telescopic Sight in a vendor. Looks like the description for the mod says what the level of zoom is for the scopes now.

Hope this helps.

It will take me longer to track down everything in that thread from June - the info I posted yesterday came from the team yesterday. It's far less precise, but yes: we're still working on that aspect.

We'll release patch notes and updates of that sort as things get finalized. In the meantime, I'll track down particulars - but I want to hold on promising specifics till they are actually in the patches for the game. That's the way I favor doing it.

Heres a BMG scope. Dunno why its a tier III but is white and cost less? Funny too, because bmg scopes aren't listed at the vendor... only this special... A bug perhaps.

Yeah probably a overlooked adjustment like the pistol mods. And that tier I launcher scope that pops up in the vendor specials. Oh, and look, it increases range. I shall ready my bio loadout for the laser kangaroos in PvP...
