Red Dot Sight
|Item Type:||Attachment (Sight)|
|Description:||"Civilian bright dot optic."|
The Red Dot Sight is an uncommon sight attachment found in military locations. It can be attached to any firearm that allows sight attachments.
The Red Dot Sight (or RDS), as the name suggests, is a tube with a red dot on the center of the glass. When scoped-in, it has a 1.5x magnification. This makes it useful for close range combat, as the low magnification is less disorienting than say, a 6x scope. It is especially useful for shotguns since it has a wide field of view, allowing the player to quickly switch between targets and maintain situational awareness. If the player is using buckshot, the tube can be used to estimate the spread of the pellets at close/melee range.
- The red dot sight is similar to holographic sight for its red dot, but the holographic sight is smaller and has a red circle around the dot, making it more obtrusive.
- It seems to be loosely based on the American Trijicon RX01 Reflex sight.
