8x Scopes are a range of 8x magnification scopes that provide incredible magnification, though force the user to sacrifice their peripheral vision to do so.

8x scopes are only available on the longest range weaponry—Sniper Rifles and the NS-AM7 Archer—replacing the weapon's in-built scope with a higher magnification option.

Each faction's 8x 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[edit | edit source]

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.
