6x Scope

Recommended Posts

Hello all.  Regarding this 6X scope - it has the ability to be zoomed in or out using the mouse wheel.  Does anyone know at which point the scope is at six times magnification ?

 

So for example, if I zoom in fully using my mouse wheel, is it then at six times magnification?  Or is it at six times magnification when fully zoomed out and if you zoom in fully you are actually at seven or eight times magnification?

 

Do you see what I mean?

 

Many thanks!

-Mark

Well since it's a 6x scopes, default is 6x zoom . You can lower the zoom at probably 4x . Makes sense?

The number it reads is the highest level of magnification you will get.

Ah thanks for this. Soulbringer- I’d be interested to know how you know that it is a 3x-6x scope.

Idk how he knows, but I know from patchnotes :)

 

With 6x scope you can zoom between 3x and 6x

With 8x scope you can zoom between 4x and 8x

And I think for 15x it's the same with 8x to 15x, but not sure here.

6x is 13.33 FOV, 3x is 26.67 FOV, so I'ts only 3x-6x, if you compare it to 80 FOV (which you would get with reddot). In reality, you're seeing a bit more zoom effect, if you play with higher base fov fpp, e.g., going from 103 fov would give you ~3.8x at "3x" and  ~7.7x at "6x".

 

On the other hand, 15x does not follow the same rule: it's 6.67 FOV at 15x, so only 12x going from 80 FOV and 15x going from 100 FOV.

I have no idea what minimum 15x zoom is, but i guess it's 13.33 FOV (so "6x").

Pretty sure the 8x rolled in as actually more like a 5x

They said on the announcement when it was introduced.

As someone else said it was all included in old patch notes. But I don't know for the 15X because they never said anything about that...I guess it is a 8X-15X...
