So it would be very nice to have these QOL improvements when it comes to the visual effects of scopes and reticles.
1. Reticle Bounce
To make recoil look more realistic, add some reticle bounce please. Currently it looks arcady how red dots and holographic sights stay 100% fixed in the center of the screen, while the gun and scope shake violently due to recoil.
COD has this too:
Btw, it would help to balance full-auto fire better and make it slightly less accurate, sometimes spraying feels too accurate and easy in combination with the extremely fast TTK of this game, thus making the game quite unforgiving when being the receiver. I believe you can achieve better accessibility with a good balance between accuracy/TTK instead of making either too easy.
Another idea would be to make the bounce more violent, the longer you press the trigger, to promote single fire and short bursts over spraying-and-praying.
Actually found out it’s already in game on a few optics and made a video comparison, it looks so much better, should be on all optics.
2. Lens effect
For magnified optics (non-pip setting), add the same effect that gasmasks use. It makes it appear more realistic and appealing and should be cheap to render aswell.
