increased magnification using filed of view
Acknowledged, WishlistPublic


Sorry if i'm reporting in the wrong section.

Yesterday i was watching a stream in twitch. In that stream there was a fight going on, the streamer had a mosin with the pu scope, he sees the guys, aims scoped, goes to the game menu, reduces the field of view to minimal and has instant x4 zoom. I checked it if it works with the long range scope and it also works, you have a drastic increase of zoom. In my opinion this can unbalance pvp and can be considered an exploit.

Hi Rodsin,
no worries, you chose the correct section. This is something that we (and majority of players) are aware of. Sadly, it is a result of the FOV mechanic itself, however we will be looking into it to prevent the abuse eventually.
Thank you for your report,

Cant you disable FOV field when in optics mode? Isnt it possible to disable automatically FOV everytime you enter optics mode?

You're in 3rd person, you see a guy, you enter optics mode, go to menu, and no FOV. and if you try FOV before you scope/optics, as soon as you enter that view, FOV gone.

Sorry, this is just a wild guess, dont even know it can be done, just trying to help
