Night Vision Optic should not be shown in 3rd person view
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Night Vision Optic is displayed while in 3rd person view and is unrealistic.

Requesting the NV "optic" ex: "circle" to be removed from 3rd person view entirely.

Edit for clarification:

We should have a "full NV green screen" without the circle with black edges in 3rd person view.

Being able to view yourself in the 3rd person is "unrealistic" in the first place, for those who prefer to play in 3rd person removing night vision from it would be pretty annoying.

What Ben85 said.

If you don't like NV while in 3rd person, just switch it off, problem solved.

If however you mean that they should remove the model of the NVG from
the character head, than what you are asking is even more not realistic
since the character obviously wears NVG, so why should it be removed?

since 3rd person exists to begin with, its ideal and better that the NVG circle optic is not shown in 3rd person view.

the ones who would down vote this are the ones who think its not a priority over others bugs and features etc, but that idea is far stretched since the changes requires only near minutes.

the other down voters hate 3rd person view do begin with.

Since 3rd exists which i support 100 percent. It makes perfect sense to remove the NVG "optic only" e.x (circle with black edges) from 3rd person view.

Any Game developer would say the same unless bias on this thread

yea the optic is redundant in 3rd view lol and simply annoying, we want the full NVG green screen baby! whats wrong with that? you cod players can still have your 1st view dont hate! but.... ofcourse the 3rd person haters are out in full force

I'd suggest not full fledged circle, but dimmed corners. Like a transparent circle with heavy gradient blur.

did you read the full ticket?
