Canted Iron Sights
|Kills Required||310 Kills|
|Available on||All primary weapons other than the AUG A1, AUG A2, G36, and M60.|
The Canted Iron Sights (CIS) is an attachment available on most primary weapons. It requires either 310 kills for the canted iron sights, or 510 credits to unlock initially.
Canted Iron Sights is an attachment available in the 'Other' category. It allows the user to equip a second backup optic to the side of the gun at an angle, hence the name "canted". The Canted Iron Sights appear to be based off the Troy Battle Sight. Canted Sights can be useful for snipers who want to use two optics at once - a scope for long range and a backup sight for close to medium range. To use Canted sights, press T and then ADS. However, not all weapons allow the attachment of the Canted Iron Sights, such as the AUG A1, which already has a built in backup sight. The CIS has a more advanced version unlocked at 405 kills, called the Canted Delta Sight. However, both sights have the same function. Canted sights are a little used attachment, but can be useful if used on a long range rifle that has an automatic fire mode, like the AN-94. However, most players prefer lasers over canted sights as canted sights are harder to unlock and can be annoying at times when the user forgets what sight is being currently used.
If the player prefers aiming down sights over hipfiring, then the canted sights will be useful, as aiming is more precise than hipfiring. The Canted Delta Sight is unlocked after the CIS, as the optic is far clearer and less obstructive, allowing for use in both CQC and medium ranges.
While many prefer to use the Canted Delta Sight, some prefer the CIS over it. For them, Canted Iron Sights are easier to line up for long range combat, as they don't rely on a somewhat pale red glowing triangle. Experienced players can pick off enemies from long range using the Canted Iron Sights.
- The Canted Iron Sights, internally, is comprised of two pieces - the rear ring, and the front split post. Both pieces are attached at different locations to allow weapons to properly mount the Canted Iron Sights at any size. The actual piece that is called the Canted Iron Sight is the rear ring.
