A significant number of community members have recently asked "Where are the 4x Rifle Scope and Red Dot Sight for the G3 and Mk14?" After all, they appeared briefly in some preview videos, and were in the game at some prelaunch community events. Where'd they go? Simply put, optics on the All Kit weapons were removed before we launched the game.
Why were All Kit optics removed?
Tests internally and with playtest groups showed that when equipped with the 4x Rifle Scope these All Kit weapons functioned similar to the Recon kit's weapons. Removing these optics preserved the distinct combat roles of each Kit, and generally reduced the amount of sniping on the Battlefield. Without optics the G3 and Mk14 are interesting alternate weapons for each class, without becoming overpowering.
Will we ever see All Kit optics return?
We don't currently have any plans to introduce optics for the All Kit weapons. But we are eager to hear even more opinions from the community. Do you want to see All Kit optics?
