Made and cleaned with FO4Edit


This simple mod changes weapon zoom marked as default, laser pistol, submachinegun, hunting rifle, and syringer from no zoom to 0.5/1.0/or 1.5x zoom.
The mod is available as ESL flagged .esp or as .esl for the main file. 

The lack of zoom by default felt off to me. I'm sure everyone has a difference in opinion about this but if you have ever fired a pistol or rifle in RL, you may be in agreement with my assessment. This by no means implies that it is an accurate representation but it is close enough for video game use.

It does make me wonder if anyone at Bethesda even bothered to go to a gun range to familiarize themselves with simple techniques and how firearms work.
The left-handed bolt on the hunting rifle by default indicates otherwise. It is one of those odd decisions I wonder about since New Vegas and Fallout 3 both handled it properly. 



Compatibility:

The mod only requires the vanilla Fallout game. It shouldn't conflict with anything unless the other mod is changing zoom settings. Load order will determine which mod wins the override. Adjust to your needs accordingly.

Installation:

Use mod manager to install or download the mod, unzip, copy to your fallout 4 data folder, and activate the mod through your mod manager.

Note:

There are similar mods on the Nexus but they are either really old files, uses up a slot, and/or tries to do too much, and/or adds too much zoom, etc.
Anyhow, I hope you find this of use. I figured I would share it since I use it on my game and it increases my enjoyment of the game.
