6x Scopes are a range of 6x magnification scopes that provide incredible magnification, though force the user to sacrifice their peripheral vision to do so.

Some weapons feature integrated 6x scopes, primarily a number of sniper rifles, though the scope can be swapped out for new optics with varying levels of magnification on these weapons.

Each faction's 6x scopes, including Nanite Systems', are visually distinct from eachother. However, they are all functionally the same, providing the same magnification regardless of weapon.

 Daybreak Cash As with all other attachments, if any instance of this attachment is purchased with Daybreak Cash it will still only be available for the specific weapon it was unlocked for, however it will be available on other characters who can use that same weapon.

Scope Sway[]

Main article: Scope Sway

Scope Sway is a mechanic unique to high-magnification sights, particularly where in use on sniper rifles, that causes the reticle to naturally drift left to right, up and down, to simulate the characters breathing.

The mechanic automatically moves the player's crosshair and thus cone-of-fire, although can be mitigated in certain ways.

Note that on weapons that do not naturally feature a 6x scope but can attach one as an alternative optic, such as the TRAC-5 S, the weapon will not experience scope sway when one is in use.
