Optics Slot

Optics are a category of attachments which alter the sights of a weapon. Different optics offer different levels of magnification; some provide a static change, while others are variable and can toggle between different levels with the sprint button (⇧ Left Shift / Left Stick / Left Stick / Left Stick). Sniper scopes, usable only on sniper rifles, include distance meters and dynamic marks on the reticle to help compensate for bullet drop. Legendary-tier scopes are Digital Threat scopes, which highlight enemies with a red silhouette even when obscured by smoke or gas.

In Battle Royale, all optics are available as ground loot, with the exception of the 4x-10x Digital Sniper Threat 4x-10x Digital Sniper Threat, which can only be found in Care Packages. In Arenas, Control, and other game modes which grant free selection of weapons, optics can be freely swapped by holding Middle / Y / Triangle / Y, provided the weapon's level is high enough to match the optic.
