    the problem with all scope or laser sight was that stood in their explanation that they was "Skill Modification" on them but when a player proved that they did not receive any additional skill points when the have scope or laser sight on the weapons then revised MA to that which you can read about here.

    The Support team has received numerous support cases inquiring about the functionality of weapon attachments lately. To meet the demand of the community, and to clear out a previously communicated misunderstanding, we have decided to provide some more information on the subject. As always, the details we provide are limited, but we hope they will shed some light on the issue.

    Apart from the advantageous visual information that you receive when using scopes and laser sights, such attachments affect your ability to aim, as explained in the Items Info. We have realized that this information is unclear today and you will therefore see an update of this information in an upcoming release.

    A previously given reply in a support case stated that a scope or laser sight “only affects the effective range of the weapon”. This was unfortunately an erroneous and poorly informed statement. We would like to apologize for publishing this misinformation and for any confusion caused by it.

    And not only that, we got a nerfs "the mob is not in range" that forced us to move closer to the animal and get more damage on our armor.


    One of the many reasons I've always admired you.Your willingness to put VERY hard work into this Universe. Words from a player in this game.

    probably this:

    total skill level = Skill level + (skill mod % * current distance of mob attacked / max range of weapon)

    Please MA dont Lie ( This was unfortunately an erroneous and poorly informed statement. We would like to apologize for publishing this misinformation and for any confusion ).

    It is clear " Skill Modification " a player proved that you do not get some skills if you use a scope, then you at MA invent that it “only affects the effective range of the weapon” at the same time you invent a nerfs " not in range".


    So what use do we got of “only affects the effective range of the weapon” when the mob is "out of range" all along......

    I remember reading somewhere that 1) attachments have no effect on maxed weapons and 2) the effect has the maximum strength at the maximum range and decreases as the mob comes closer.

    So from [1] I assume it improves your Aim skill by the indicated Skill Mod % and thus decreases number of "MISS"-es (which happen now only on unmaxed weapons) and because of [2] I use it only on taggers that I haven't maxed out yet (Bravo in the past and SR47 now).

    i use scope because it makes aiming with long range rifle so so easy.

    laser sight looks very cool too.
    hardly could find any info elsewhere...any update or change since 2013 ??

    i can only rely on tests with maxed weapons and there scopes n sights (apart from the +crit ones) have zero impact on anything. neither on hitrate, nor on skillgains. i couldnt even recognize any higher loot due to the increased decay, though the reason might be that the decay is too little to recognize it anyway.

    sad to hear
    clarification or changing on this kind of basic system should be prioritized as much as space improvement.
    i may have laser sight solely just for fun then...thx for the reply !

    I dont think there is one scope that has the correct aim ingame. You can test this by shooting something thin from far away and you will miss, but if you set it little bit on the side you hit it.
