The hunting rifle scope is a weapon mod sold in Fallout: New Vegas.

Characteristics

This mod increases the zoom factor to 3.5x magnification while aiming down the hunting rifle's sight by virtue of aiming using the telescopic sight attached by the mod as opposed to the usual iron sights. Visually, a telescopic sight is mounted over top of the rifle's action. The scope might not be seen while the rifle is on the ground, or in the third person view. This attachment can improve the player's accuracy significantly, putting it on par with the sniper rifle. However, the scope will limit the player's field of vision, making close quarters combat extremely difficult.

Notes

  • Prior to patch 1.3.0.452, the hunting rifle scope was only worth 250 caps.
  • Bullets tend to hit slightly below the crosshairs of the scope.

Bugs

  • Icon ps3.png Icon xbox360.png As with other scoped weapons, there is a bug which replaces the normal crosshairs with a blank computer screen. [verified]
  • Icon pc.png Icon ps3.png A slightly different zooming glitch is present where aiming with the hunting rifle scope obscures all but the upper right screen quadrant with shards of opaque color. [verified]
