Post Russian Optics

I don't see why the Russians only have the godawful 1P29 optic available to them. I mean, that thing is unusable. How about instead of that, we get the PSO-1 and PK-A? And maybe also the PKA-S and Kobra reflex sights? I think the developers really need to consider this. At the very least, we need a better scope than the 1P29, IMO.

start using iron sights. when you master them you wont ever need a scope. i dont remember the last time i had a scope (regardless of map, faction, whatever).

What's wrong with 1p29?

It's good because reticle is on top of scope so you can see where(if) your bullet landed low(or not).

Maybe IRL it's good, ingame it sucks and I also can't stand it.

I don't use it. ACOG without reflex sights also sucks, same for horrible Aimpoint. EoTech all day, all the way.

i guess he's mad at the fact that the screen is blacked out around the reticle due to the way the scope is designed. In other scopes (acog for example) the screen is blurred out. It's funny how in older versions of PR the screen was blacked out around on the acog aswell and ppl didnt seem to complain.

Sorry, Markunator, but thats how the scope is designed. It's not really a big deal. On most Russian maps you're better off with iron sights anyway. There are only a few maps where a scope might be useful (such as Black Gold) but you get the "advantage" of having back up sights where the enemy does not have them. The back up sights may be crude, but they're there. I can only think of Vadso off the top of my head as a map where the opposing team has better scopes and backup sights. But tbh you should just grab iron sights on vadso and clear buildings and bushes instead of sitting atop a hill and picking enemies off. You'll contribute more to your teams goals.

I usually go iron sights when it comes to playing as a Russian (most factions actually). My only complaint, if any, would be that the scope (while unscoped) takes up the whole screen. Other than that, it works.

The only other assault rifle sight used in Russian army is 1P78, but the irons are not usable with it so I'd rather take 1P29 in PR. What's more important is that someone must model one first for the mod.

Agree, I hate how the Russian scope takes up the bottom 1/6 of the screen while unscoped, dido for the British ACOG w/ reflex sight. I like the smaller scopes like US ACOG, French Scope, or MEC scope.

As a whole though the Russian Scope is only the second worst in-game for me personally. The Canadian/Dutch ACOG is worse because it is aimed on the triangle and not above it.

OMG, this forum thread Death posted is hilarious! Did you guys read this?

Seriously, though, I'm surprised some people prefer the iron sights of the AK to the scope. It's so much faster lining up a shot when you have a scope. When doing single shot with iron sights it takes so long to line up each shot because the target is usually only a few pixels across.
