  • NO CQB sights on weapons w/acog or scoped sights

    Title pretty much explains it. I haven't been able to get this to work for some time. I really don't know what the keybind is supposed to be for to enable this option.

    The only key binding I see in the Options > Controls are "Optics," but this just enables the primary scope. I can't figure out how to enable the CQB sight. This used to work a few months ago.

    Can someone walk me through how to do this? Is this an ACE or OA feature?

    What is the keybinding or setting called?



    -thanks!

    The default key is the numpad slash.

      Unfortunately, the slash key on NUMPAD does nothing in my keybinds.

      Does anyone know the name of the key bind bind name? I'm thinking I may have to directly edit the .cfg file, or pull a value from a new Player config.

        I figured it out. Had to manually edit the player config file

          Could you go more in depth as to how you did this please? I am having the same problem.

            I had this problem two months ago. Scouring through ALL CONTROLS (very important), you will find OPTICS MODE. It is only shown in the ALL CONTROLS filter of the binds menu. I changed mine to something like left control + right mouse button. Heck, last night in a run of ACE Insurgency, I was constantly flipping between the scope itself and its sight on the "M16A2 M203 Scope" depending on range and cover. Extremely handy.


            ALL CONTROLS then scroll and look for OPTICS MODE

              I would highly suggest putting optics mode on space bar, and deleting the commanding mode key that space bar is attached to because it only applies to single player. Much easier to switch optics with space bar and for me it makes it feel more natural as IRl switching optics is meant too be a fluid transition.

                Heeeyy, thats pretty good. I'm going to change my acre interaction keys to use spacebar as my current binds sometimes interfere with stand and prone.

                  Hmm...nice protip there Bolagnaise. *thumbs up*

                  Some weapons do have them, some don't. So keep that in mind when slamming your backup sights/CQB sights keys. :)
                  The model may be there, but some just won't let you. Not by design but the addon makers, BIS whomever made it didn't add that feature in.
