ACOG vs REFLEX

#1GoldeneyeJoePosted 4/14/2011 7:32:43 AM
tell me if theres anything wrong or untrue, im gonna tell you what my current understanding of these two attachments are.. i need to know if i'm wrong or right! :D

Reflex Sight
- Increases Zoom
- Reduces Bulet Spread

ACOG
-Increases zoom by more than Reflex for greater accuracy
-Does NOT reduce bullet spread

It seems to be that way, but maybe that is just because I fire at more distant targets with an ACOG.

I THINK everything you said is right, but I have a feeling ACOG reduces range? I'm not sure.

Personal accuracy, yes, actual in-game accuracy, no. (Which I believe is what you meant by saying after it doesn't reduce bullet spread).

I don't mind the Acog but rarely use it. I don't see the purpose in having a good zoom which does not increse accuracy when I gan usually lock on quite distant foes with just the iron sight. For me I would not get enough benefit from it over the incresed accuracy of the reflex or laser.

that sounds about right to me. which is a better attachment is a matter of opinion, i prefer acog for larger maps, but use laser and reflex on other loadouts.

ACOG increases accuracy by exactly the same amount as the reflex sight. They solve the same purpose. ACOG looks the same on every weapon while reflex changes with the type of weapon. It's just a matter of taste what you prefer.

I briefly decided that I hated the ACOG, but from levels 35-40 I used the following almost exclusively in Conflict:

Terralite III w/ ACOG (Station, Outpost, Jungle, Memorial)
Vergen FH-7 w/ Laser (Everything else)

Once I got the Anova DP3 I decided to retry the Reflex sight and I absolutely hated it. First game on Nightclub went ok, but my second game on Docks was one of my worst ever. It seems like the Reflex can't handle the Anova's recoil as well as the ACOG can.

i was the opposite with the anova, i hated acog on it(except for bonds) and used reflex alost exclusivly. i had a vargen with acog that i used from time to time too, which is weird because until level 40 i hated the acog on the vargen.

nope! the reflex gives a big boost, the ACOG gives a little boost. if you ever pick up the same gun with both attachments you can switch between them and see a slight cursor difference. i've tested the groupings each one gets and they're both more accurate than iron sights, but the reflex is slightly better.
