Bolt action and Lever action rifles

Bolt and lever action rifles commonly use non-electrical scopes. Although most law enforcement officials and military personnel use automatic of semi-automatic firearms, these negate the desire to switch to full-auto, thus wasting bullets. Scopes are recommended for all types of rifles.

Assault rifles

Assault rifles tend to use mid-ranged scopes. It is highly recommended to stay on the "semi-auto" mode to save ammunition.

Battle Rifles

Battle Rifles are basically assult rifles with larger bullets. This means that they are better at long range against armored enemies (bandits or undead military/special forces personnel). A long range scope would greatly increase the effectiveness of this weapon.


It is highly recommended to refrain from using a scope on a shotgun

Sniper Rifles

Since sniper rifles are designed for long range combat, it is highly recommended to equip a scope for easier use.
