Distance measuring in optics and armoured vehicles not working
Reviewed, NormalPublic


Since the jets DLC, I cannot see distance information in the TWS or nigthstalker scopes

Actually - it does work but in a very weird way - by pressing \

The quirks are as follows:
Using scopes in first person - press \ - player view pans down and then back up - scope provides a static view of the distance
Laser designator - press \ - player takes out rifle and then puts it back - designator provides static view of distance.
Neither provide dynamic distance reading as they used to.

This screams of broken animation similar to heal self or repair vehicle rather than an intentional change.

And no distance measuring in armored vehicles, like tanks.


Operating System
Windows 10 x64
Operating System Version
Build 15063.296
Steps To Reproduce

To measure the distance use the key, the default is "T".
Works everywhere, where there is a distance sensor.

As for me, me, I found no way(means) to find my measure of distance.

Check if your keybindig is set

In order to get the distance with hand-held rangefinder or turret rangefinders, you need to "lase" the target first.

Default key for this should be T, please check your keybind in your controls settings (Keyboard - Weapons category)

It is OK, it was necessary to re-configure him(it) in the options, I did not have him(it) automatically. Thank you very much.
But I do not hide you that I preferred the former(old) automatic system.
Well, it will become again one habit.
Thank you and congratulation to all the team.
