IRL the Trijicon Reflex RDS has a 4.5 MOA dot while the EOTech Holo has a 1MOA dot in a 65MOA circle.

Just from look alone, I think this might be the case in game (or at least a comparable version). A lot of people prefer the Kobra to the Reflex simply because the dot is so big and covers up so much target. To them, I say if the dot is too big then you are using it in the wrong ranges.

I run the RDS on my up "close and personal"/suppressed guns ONLY.

For my typical urban go-to guns I almost always run a Holo. It's naturally more accurate because of the smaller dot, the slightly higher zoom lets you see targets easier which helps for slightly longer ranges, and the circle is handy up close since as long as the body of the target fills the circle you are pretty much guaranteed to hit it.

Something to consider.


Either you are wrong about your facts or I just don't understand your example.

If we are saying hypothetically that RDS=2mm/0.1° and the Holo=3mm/0.1°, then to move them both 1° would require 20mm of movement for the RDS or 30mm of movement for the Holo.

I don't know when degrees became pixels, or why 6mm @ 2mm/0.1° is 10 pixels and 9mm @ 3mm/0.1° is 15 pixels. In my head, 6/2 and 9/3 both equal 3. 3 multiplied by 0.1° is 0.3° for both cases, and would equate to the same pixels, right?

If you were basically saying you have more fine control over recoil when using the Holo because of the lower sensitivity, I'll agree. However, it is easier to coarsely manage the recoil with the higher sensitivity RDS. Yes?

Thanks for the heads up!

Hardline is a fun and sometimes silly Cops and Robbers sorta thing and I think that's great. Or it would be if it didn't suck.

Meanwhile at DICE-headquarters during BF4's release:

I'm pretty sure there's a massive post-it on every desk "DON'T FUCKING TOUCH ANYTHING THAT IS ACTUALLY DOING WHAT IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE DOING"

"Hey guys remember how stupid prenerf mav was?"

"Lets add c4 to it."

The World Champion went to China once.

They called me a Gweilo.

So I kicked a big fucking hole in their wall and let all the Mongolians in.

just thought I'd share.

The thought of Assaults running out of ACE 23 rounds mid firefight, Engineers facing the rear of an unaware MBT with no rockets left, Recons unable to...Whatever the fuck they do. These are the things that keep me up at night ;(

About hunturk:
I don't know what's funnier, the video itself of the fact that an unlisted video has more views than most of your normal videos :P


You just live to hit people upside the noggin with a Math Bomb, don't you?

Previously, at DICE HQ:
"Ok guys, the password is "epic dream worlds"; everyone take a letter and do your best to turn it into into something random that we can put into a picture!"

I assume a functional game (BF4) also.

So cute!
