VCOG 6x Scope
|All Primary Weapons except AWS and L115A3. M9, M93R, Serbu Shotgun, SFG 50, Sawed-Off and Obrez|
The VCOG 6x Scope is an American Telescopic Sight. It requires 455 kills to be unlocked or can be purchased with credits (CR).
The VCOG 6x scope is a hunting and military purpose telescope sight. VCOG stands for Variable Combat Optical Gunsight. It has a variable zoom from 1 to 6 times magnification, though the in-game version is fixed at 6x.
The model in-game is the VCOG. The reticle is the VC16-C-1600006 and VC16-C-1600013.
The VCOG is fixed at 6x zoom. It's useful for Designated Marksman Rifles and other long range rifles. It has a slightly faster Aim-Down-Sights (ADS) time than the default Sniper Scope, For weapons, such as DMRs, Sniper Rifles and some Battle Rifles, some Light Machine Guns and some Assault Rifles, the VCOG provides a higher magnification level and a better view on target at longer distances. However, it can greatly increase the accuracy of short-range weapons, like the MP5K, but for Shotguns, VCOG is not so effective. Using the VCOG on shotguns limits their effectiveness up close. However, with slugs, they can become a makeshift-Sniper, with low muzzle velocity but high damage out to a considerable distance. Interestingly, it can be used on three pistols, the M9, the ZIP 22, the M93R, and additionally the Obrez, Serbu Shotgun and Sawed-Off. Putting this on the M9, ZIP 22, or M93R is questionable, as they are pistols designed for Close-Quarters-Combat (CQC). However, the M9 does 20 as its base damage, which is equivalent to many assault rifles. For the Obrez while it might seem like a good idea as it's sort of a pocket sniper, this is based on user preference if one desires to sacrifice the potentially large but limited CQC capabilities the weapon has to dedicate it to long-range duty. For the Serbu of Sawed-Off, like primary shotguns, using the VCOG with slugs can turn these weapons into pocket Sniper Rifles, able to take out enemies at longer distances.
Since most Sniper Rifles in-game have a magnification greater than 6x, equipping a VCOG will provide much less zoom compared to their default scopes. However, this may be preferable due to the lower magnification offering a much better Field of View (FoV) to acquire targets and to see incoming threats. This can be used on rifles that benefit from a higher zoom than normal optics, like the AN-94, which can use its burst mode to accurately land shots at long range. However, it is recommended to attach a Canted sight to maintain the rifle's CQC capability when applicable.
The VCOG allows for better long-range capabilities for weapons like Battle Rifles, Assault Rifles, LMGs and especially DMRs, but also provides better medium-range performance for Snipers, allowing a higher FoV and faster ADS time and ultimately a more "aggressive" play style. With weapons such as the AG-3, M60, AK-47, L85A2 and SCAR-SSR, tap-firing with VCOG attached allows for more effective long-range combat performance, able to go toe-to-toe with Snipers.
- Unfortunately, unlike the real-life variant and acronym, the zoom is not variable.
- Like the ACOG, the VCOG is also designed and manufactured by Trijicon.
- The old reticle of the VCOG was that of the VC16-C-16000010 and VC16-C-16000009.
- When the reticle was replaced, it was a white colored reticle in testing. This was later changed to red.
- The new reticle is that of the VC16-C-1600006 and VC16-C-1600013.
- Using the alternate aim mode on a shotgun with a VCOG attached will have the shotgun positioned so that the top of the scope is used as the crosshair.
