Question about sights

I use M416 with foregrip + heavy barrel. I don't like too much holo sight. I never like it but if it's necessary i use it. I always play with Acog (4x) or M145 (3.4x)

I am using recently holo sight because one friend say me that the waepon have less recoil. I feel it's true!!! When i shot, weapon is more precise. I tried to shoot to wall to see recoil and i see whith holo i have less recoil. I don't have much less, only a little, but sufficient to make differences in medium distances (more than 30 meters) to kill fast, or need many bullets.

It's only my apreciation? Or it's real?

Re: Question about sights

higher magnification sights = lower mouse sensitivity = more difficult to compensate for recoil

Re: Question about sights

Another "Does adding a special sight decrease my recoil thread?"

NO.

Simply put, Holo sights ( Is it the EOTech?) are too blocky and too large that you perceive that every bullet goes straight to the target, well that big red circle + dot is easier to see.

By the way, the Holo sight is x1.8 only, you'd really see a magnified recoil when you try more powerful sights.

Re: Question about sights

Compare a 6x on your M16 to its Iron Sights. I assure you, you'll notice a huge difference. If your gun goes up by, say, ten degrees while firing, you will perceive a much greater vertical change relative to a Reflex simply because the amount it goes up is multiplied by a much larger number due to scope magnification. This makes it much easier to compensate for recoil.

I prefer a Reflex to Holos, it's much easier to acquire close-range targets. I only use Holos on long-range weapons (like the M39 or slug shotguns).

Re: Question about sights

Quoted from ""jaedong""

Partly false, you have lower mouse sensitivity in HOLO than 3.4x or 4x. Basicly for the same mouse movement you cover the same area, but the 3.4x/4x magnify more so it has higher sensitivity (pixel wise, not compared to ingame movement).

Red dot has about the same sens as you have in unzoomed.

The hardness with fairly high recoil on 3.4x/4x scope is it moves much more (pixel wise again), because the movement is magnified.
