A standardized rail-mounted, 4x magnifying scope with tritium-illuminated reticle designed for M4-A1 assault rifle. — In-game description


The ATOG Scope is a telescopic Sight with an illuminated reticle for the M4-A1, SG5-K, USG-45 and LAR in DayZ Standalone. The ATOG Scope provides a reduction to the weapon's dispersion cone, increasing the overall accuracy of the weapon. It also provides additional zeroing ranges, allowing the survivor to make more accurate shots at longer ranges. The illuminated reticle on the ATOG Scope does not require a battery, making the ATOG Scope the only illuminated scope in DayZ Standalone that doesn't require one.

Performance[edit | edit source]

The performance table below shows improvements or reductions in the various aspects of a weapon's performance. The base column is the named stat of the listed weapon with no attachments.

Weapon Base Dispersion Dispersion with ATOG Scope Accuracy Improvement
SG5-K 0.003 0.002875 4.17%
USG-45 0.003 0.002875 4.17%

LAR 0.001 0.000875 12.5%

Range Finding with the ATOG Scope[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 200 m, the next 300 m, then 400 m, and so on. The 600 m 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 100 m, the rangefinder lines correspond to bullet drop. Therefore, at a 400 m distance, the round will land on the 400 m line in the reticle. If the optic is zeroed to 400 m, 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 the LAR, 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.
