The C79 is a Canadian Telescopic Sight. It is unlocked by obtaining 125 kills or can be purchased with credits (CR).

Details

The C79 Optical sight is a 3.4x magnification and a rubber coating for protection. A tritium-illuminated reticle (Illumination not present in-game) provides sighting for low-light conditions. It is manufactured by Eclan and is marketed as the SpecterOS3.4x but in Canadian service, it is referred to as the C79 or the C79A2, much like in-game.

This sight is used by numerous military forces, such as the Royal Netherland Army. They generally put this optic on the Diemaco C7 assault rifle or the C9A1 Light Machine Gun.

The ACOG is the United State Armed Forces' common equivalent of the C7 sight.

In-game

The C79 has a unique reticle (A "T" shaped reticle, which is somewhat similar to the Kobra Sight's reticle) that can be effective against medium/long range opponents. The in-game model does not have an illuminated crosshair, and the black targeting reticle is nearly impossible to make out against extremely dark backgrounds. For example, when targeting players on the rooftops on Ravod 911 in nighttime environment. Equipping any of the lasers will help compensate for this as the laser visibly terminates at the center of the aiming reticle, but an illuminated sight is still recommended for low-light situations.

Usage

The C79 is useful for weapons that have high recoil. This optic is best suited for mid-range combat as the 3.4x magnification will help with tracking farther enemies whilst suffering from less visible recoil than higher magnification sights, such as the ACOG or the VCOG.

Pros and Cons

Pros:

  • The 3.4x magnification makes it useful with weapons that have high recoil.
  • The optic is available at only 125 kills.

Cons:

  • The optic is only available on a select few weapons.
  • The crosshairs are not illuminated, which makes aiming at a dark background difficult.

Trivia

  • This is the only optic that features a colored body. All other optics are black with accents of silver and/or white.
  • This optic was introduced with the C7A2 - a now removed weapon from the Alpha and early Beta.
