A Scope is a removable attachment used to improve the accuracy of a rifle by magnifying the target and improving aim with a crosshair as well as indicator markings for range (gravity) or wind vector compensation.   

Magnification


Scopes offer magnification and the scope is classified by optical magnification and the lens diameter. For example 8x40 means 8 times the magnification  with a lens of 40 mm (1.57 inch).

Drawbacks


Scopes also obstruct a player's field of vision, making it easier to sneak up on him to the point where helicopters and air dropped objects have been used in multiplayer games featuring combined arms combat to land on top of and crush "in scope" snipers.
