    Short summary describing this thing.

    No recent wiki edits to this page.

    This gameplay mechanic is most common in third-person shooters, particularly those with an over-the-shoulder view.

    The laser sight mechanic was largely popularized by Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, which used it in first-person view, and particularly Resident Evil 4, which combined it with an over-the-shoulder view, setting the standard for third-person action games.
