  • Sniper Rifles

    Now, I've never fired any of the rifles use in PR, in real life. I have used various types of scopes though, and none of them had 2 different range views. I may be wrong, but do these rifles in real life have 2 views?

    There are variable zoom scopes.

      There are all kinds of complex optics available for rifles. A variable zoom is relatively common.

        Like was said, they do have variable zoom scopes far and wide.

        I believe the main reason to make it 2 or even 3 fixed views of varying zoom levels in BF2 is a limit of the engine. I do not believe you can zoom in and out fluidly in the game, so they had to settle for fixed, "hard" zooms of varying levels.

        At least I think I recall that reason being given on the PR forums. :D

          I've seen many variable zoom spotting scopes, but I take back my original statement, I have seen one, a russian scope fitted for a variety of russian rifles, but not for anything else.


          **EDIT**
          After a few pages into google, found some. :D

            Well, next time you're at walmart, go to the sporting goods area and you can check out some cheap variable zoom rifle scopes.

              Well, I thought walmart has us in its scope.

              Anyways, variable scopes are out there. I have one mounted to a 22 for critter control.

                As far as I know snipers will usually dial in a set range that they expect to be operating at i.e. 600 yards and then simply 'hold off' target for variations. This apears to be SOP for US snipers operating in Iraq at the moment.

                  Also, the variation pwns me IRL... Ive only fired two shots at a target, and the first one went clean over.. >.< (Accident, first real gun shot evar. I get that one screwup)

                  And the scope, or at least the center crosshair had Tritium. I glows in the dark. (Same element in ACOG scopes.)

                  It was awesome =D

                    Not wether there are variable zoom scopes, but are there sniper rifles with variable zoom scopes ?? Just asking. I was thinking they were fixed focal length.

                        Haha, I've heard it before. Don't speak german, had to read a translation.
