Scopes and Reflex Sights
Red Dot Sight
The red dot sight is one of the most basic reflex sights. Offering no telescopic capabilities, it merely increases the user's accuracy by projecting a red dot onto the target. Due to its small size and lack of telescopic capabilities, it is best utilized with a sub-machine gun or shotgun.
Red Point Sight
While still only projecting a red dot onto a target, the red point sight offers an advantage in telescopic capabilities over the red dot and can be manipulated to more properly sight-in a weapon, making it a better choice for longarms such as rifles and carbines.
ACOG Reflex Sight
The Advanced Combat Optical Gunsight, ACOG for short, offers telescopic abilities well beyond those of the two previous sights. Used mainly by marksmen and some snipers, the ACOG sight projects a red dot at the center of a red-orange crosshairs onto a target. This, combined with its increased telescopic capabilities, makes it an imperative for riflemen engaging hostiles at range.
The sniper scope is the standard scope for all UNSC sniper rifles, although servicepeople may switch these out at their discretion. Offering telescopic capabilities up to 20x zoom, sniper scopes often contain built-in computer suites to calibrate the sight for wind and other factors, and may even project a weapon status into the user's HUD, such as rounds left in weapon.
While not really a separate type of scope, a thermal sight is simply a standard sight, such as the ACOG sight pictured to the left, that has been modified to display a thermal image as well as the crosshairs or dot. These sights are often used by UNSC special forces operators, or by forces operating in wooded areas or other locales where it would be easy for an enemy to camouflage him- or herself.
