    A helpful development in making games user friendly, this helps the player know when they've got their shot centered by turning a grey reticle red while it's held over an enemy. More recent changes to this concept include making the reticle only turn red when the player is capable of hitting the enemy with their currently equipped weapon, turning the reticle green when held over a friendly character, or adding a dot to the center of the reticle when it is held over an enemy's head, signifying a one-hit-kill headshot.
