“A standaridized rail-mounted, 4x magnifying scope with tritium-illuminated reticle designed for M4-A1 assault rifle — In-game description
The ATOG Scope is a weapon attachment in DayZ Standalone.
General[edit | edit source]
The ATOG features several marked lines in the reticle which act as both rangefinders and bullet drop aim points.
The lines, when placed over the shoulders of a standing adult target, show the approximate distance from the shooter to the target. The line below the center crosshair denotes 200m, the next 300m, then 400m, and so on. The 600m line is not visible when the ATOG is mounted on the M4-A1, as the front sight post covers it.
When the distance is known, the reticle's lines also work as bullet drop compensators. Assuming the sight has been manually zeroed to 100m (by using page down by default), the rangefinder lines correspond to bullet drop. Therefore, at a 400m distance, the round will land on the 400m line in the reticle. If the optic is zeroed to 400m, the center crosshair point will be the point of impact. It should be noted that this only applies in relation to the ATOG Optic when used on the M4-A1, as the ATOG is ballistically calibrated specifically to 5.56mm ammunition.
In the case of using the ATOG Optic on the SG5-K, USG-45 or FN FAL, the above does not hold true, as the 9mm, .45ACP and .308 cartridges have different ballistic properties. This means the lower markers of the ATOG Optic cannot necessarily be used as an accurate indicator for bullet drop with these weapons.
