What is PUBG Red Dot Sight?
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds Red Dot Sight in detail
An open holographic sight that projects a red dot in the center of a glass or acrylic pane. It also speeds up the time it takes to aim down the sights by 20%. Compared to the holographic sight, the red dot sight has a less bulkier frame, although the reticle is somewhat blurrier. Nevertheless, the red dot sight is a good addition to any gun that can accept it as it has no major downsides over iron sights. The reticle’s brightness can be adjusted by rolling the mouse wheel up or down. And the dot can be change by using Zeroing Distance button (which default by Page Up and Page Down).
- The Red Dot Sight is based on the Sightmark Sure Shot reflex sight. When mounted on pistols, it takes on the appearance of a Trijicon RMR reflex sight.
- In PUBG Mobile, the Red Dot Sight was referred to as the Mira Red Dot Sight until the 0.6.0 update.
What is PUBG Holographic Sight?
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds Holographic Sight in detail
A reflex sight with a clear reticle, although the bulky frame can reduce some situational awareness compared to the red dot sight. Recommended for closer range fights. The reticle’s brightness can be adjusted by rolling the mouse wheel, and its color changed between either green or red with the zeroing keys.
As of PC Update #13, the holographic sight’s reticle is now the same size as a standing person at a 100m distance.
- The Holographic Sight is based on the EOTech Model 553 holographic sight.
- Contrary to its performance in-game, in reality the holographic sight is much less obtrusive due to the fact that the sight is meant to be used with both eyes open, with the dominant eye looking down the sight and the other eye focusing on the scene downrange.
What is PUBG 6x Scope?
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds 6x Scope in detail
The 6x scope is a rare world spawn, being the highest powered scope that the assault rifles and submachine guns can accept. The reticle also features a stadiametric rangefinder suitable for standing targets between 300 to 800 meters. This scope is very versatile due to its simple rangefinder and ability to zoom out to 3x magnification, as well as its compatibility with assault rifles and submachine guns, greatly extending the range at which opponents can be attacked at.
Because the 6x scope’s magnification sets the field of view to 13.33°, players using a default field of view value higher than 80° will technically get slightly more than 6x magnification power due to the greater difference in FOV values.
- The 6x scope is based on the ELCAN Specter DR 1.5-6x dual role scope, although in-game the scope can only zoom out to a minimum of 3x magnification for balancing purposes.

What is PUBG 2x Aimpoint Scope?
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds 2x Aimpoint Scope in detail
While this scope appears mediocre in regard to its zoom power and reticle, the reticle allows the user an improvised method of rangefinding – a standing person 100 meters away will fit perfectly between the top and bottom of the outer circle, and a standing person 200 meters away will fit between the center dot and the outer circle. At 300 meters, the width of a standing person will be obscured by the center dot.
Keeping this in mind, the gun can then be zeroed for whichever range the target is at to deal precision shots and as most engagements typically take place within 300 meters, the usefulness of this scope is often underestimated. You can use the mouse wheel to adjust the reticle’s brightness.
Because the 2x scope’s magnification sets the field of view to 40°, players using a default field of view value higher than 80° will technically get slightly more than 2x magnification power due to the greater difference in FOV values.
- The 2x Aimpoint Scope is based on the Aimpoint Comp M2 reflex sight, designated as the M68 Close Combat Optic by the United States military, although in reality, the Comp M2 is a non-magnifying sight.
What is PUBG 4x ACOG Scope?
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds 4x ACOG Scope in detail
The ACOG scope allows for the user to engage targets at medium to long ranges. With a built in rangefinder, and its 4x zoom, the ACOG scope is one of the most useful attachments a player can come across, as such it is highly recommended to take it, even if you do not have a weapon that can accept it.
It should be noted that while the name of this attachment would imply 4x magnification, because it magnifies the field of view down to 19° instead of 20°, this means that with the minimum field of view setting of 80°, the magnification power of this optic is actually closer to 4.21x.
- The ACOG Scope is based on the Trijicon TA31F 4×32 BAC ACOG scope.
- The reticle used in-game for 5.56mm rifles is identical in appearance to that used on the TA31F scope. Curiously it has self illumination down to the 700 meter point of impact line – a feature not present in any of the chevron-based reticle options for the 4×32 fiber optic-illuminated scopes.
- The reticle used for the 7.62mm assault rifles, Crossbow and Saiga-12K is based on that used in the TA50-C-400238 3×24 ACOG scope.

What is PUBG 3x Scope?
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds 3x Scope in detail
The 3x scope represents a compromise between the 2x and 4x scopes. The reticle can be used as a rangefinder for targets between 100 meters out to 400 meters by using the shoulder width of a target and matching it up with the horizontal lines. The reticle brightness can also be adjusted to current lighting conditions.
Because the 3x scope’s magnification sets the field of view to 26.66°, players using a default field of view value higher than 80° will technically get slightly more than 3x magnification power due to the greater difference in FOV values.
- The 3x scope is based on the Vortex Spitfire 3X Prism Scope with the EBR-556B reticle. The test server version of this scope originally featured a larger red reticle identical in appearance to its real life counterpart, but was changed in the live version to a smaller green one in response to feedback for a clearer reticle.
