BF1 Weapon Optics

Is there a list of which weapons feature which optics. Apologies if this already exists somewhere, but I can't find anything.

Basically, without buying a weapon, is there any way to know what optics are fitted. For example, there are 3 M.95 variants, Infantry, Carbine and Marksman. I know all the Infantry variants feature iron sights, but what about the Carbine, Marksman and Sniper. Do they all feature scopes. I heard talk of some weapons in the alpha/beta having a side mounted scope and iron sights which you could toggle between. I notice some of the rifles have fixed zeroing, so perhaps it's those and the input normally used for zeroing is used to toggle optics.

I also here talk of a primitive reflex sight, but again, haven't come across it yet on the weapons I have bought.

It might make sense to pull together a summary of this. If folks can share anything they've learned about the different optics, I'll summarise it here.

For bolt-action rifles:
Carbine has Enfield Prototype 1913/Aviation reflex hybrid sight <- that's what you call "a primitive reflex sight"
Marksman has 2x-4x very obstructive sight
Sniper has 5x-10x nice sight and bipod
Infantry has iron sights with 1x-2x magnification with(can't confirm this for all bolt-action rifles) straight bolt pull.
Sorry for my bad english - it's not my native language and I have difficulties with acquiring speaking/writing practice in my country. If I accidently insult you or say something wrong - I'm sorry, you can feel free to correct me.

Marksman has 2x-4x very obstructive sight

arguable, i personally find the marksman sight to be more clean and useful than the high power optic.

But how?

Spoiler Spoiler


yea, I'm too lazy to take my own screenshots.

About usefulness: you can set sniper to 5x zoom and still have a bipod - you deploy it automatically and get a infinite hold breath. At 2x zoom iron sight are better because of straight bolt pull.
Solution: give straight bolt pull to marksman variants.

Maybe it's a placebo because of the lower zoom? I dunno, it's not like i had the scopes in front of me when writing that.

Sure you can use Irons and get something similar, but Irons can't use a Bipod or snipe at long range (not really), and sure you can set Sniper to 5x and run around closer, but it can't perform as close as Marksman could. Marksman is the all-round, versatile option.
Who has fun, wins.

Thanks mate, that's useful. Keen to try out the carbine variants.

Re the straight pull, I think it's only the Gewehr M.95 that has it. But at the cost of no OHK sweet spot range. Its head shots all the way. Still love it though.

For how clean each of the scopes are, is it referring to the amount of area on your screen blocked on the outside by the container of the optics? If we are talking about reticles, then you can always change it to one with crosshairs if lines not intersecting bothers you.
