I am just wondering about the zoom on weapons. You can zoom on a pistol, rifle, submachinegun etc, but in reality these weapons had simply iron sights and didn't give a closer view of your target. AT guns and the like which usually had good sights can't zoom in FH. This means engaging tanks and what not is restricted to much less what they would really be capable of. You also cant zoom on machineguns like MG42 but you can for as I said a pistol. Is there a reason for this?

It was to simulate the increased concentration you have when you look throught iron sights, but fh didnt have any, so it has zoom.

Ok thats fine but then what about the increased concentration when looking thru the iron sights of a machinegun, tank sights, or AT gun? That only answered part of the question.

There wasn't as much needed, I guess. With a hand-weapon you have to hold it and aim, and your arm is swaying so it's more difficult. But with an AT gun or tanks sights you're probably sitting down. Plus the sights will not be swaying. Does that explain it?

I know what you are saying, but just as a sniper rifle zooms close up so should tank and AT gun sights, or at least with machineguns since they are infantry carried weapons like the rest.

mgs dont have any recoil and AT-rifles, at least for me, have such a wierd velocity that i cant hit anything thats so far away i need to zoom. anyways mgs are gonna have true iron sites in .7 so that should take care of somethings.

Look at the video in latest update showing the use of iron sights on some weapons.

Hey steiner is right. If you really take a smg and look down the iron sight in rl. It dosent zoom in this needs to be fixed you know why. Last week in bf2 i was out of ammo ith me main gun so i was using mt hand gun. I saw someone like 200 meters away far across the map and aimed me hand gun at him and shot him and it killed him. This would never happen in rl i dont care what you say. TAKE THE ZOOM OFF!!!

YOU wont hit anything if you dont have zoom i guess. Zoom is like a bonus for taking the time to push the altenate attack button.
