Notes:
*Performance will decrease a bit when the scope is active.
*The scope doesn't use the night vision filter as it makes it difficult to see.

Config options are stored at C:\Users\YourName\AppData\Local\MW5Mercs\Saved\Config\WindowsNoEditor\Game.ini

These are if the Controls section doesn't work in the UI or you want to toggle the less used hidden options

Alternate Download: Simple Zoom

A completely different implementation of zoom that follows the same method as 1.35x and 2x by changing the user's FOV. Very stripped down in terms of features. I still recommend this one because it gets the job done of seeing further and keeps things simple.

  • No performance overhead
  • Nightvision works
  • Sensitivity already implemented due to FOV scaling
  • Uses scroll wheel only (increase/decrease zoom) with mouse and keyboard
  • Controller support (untested) should use cycle zoom when a controller is detected
  • Joystick (untested) should also be able to use increase/decrease zoom
  • Optional 8x, disabled by default

To turn on 8x go to AppData\Local\MW5Mercs\Saved\Config\WindowsNoEditor\Engine.ini

Add this to the bottom of the file

[/SimpleZoom/HUD_SimpleZoom.HUD_SimpleZoom_C]
8XActive=True

This file tends to update and overwrite itself so if your changes get erased try setting the file to read-only.
  
Notes:
*Changing between first and third person resets to 2x if at 4x or 8x
