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


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.
