Am I missing something here or is there only one type of 12x scope:
Level 1 grey

?

I am level 21 and have yet to get blueprints for any new marksman scopes. I have seen rumors of a 15x but have never found one. So is there only one 12x marksman scope to get?

I've seen a few blue and purple VX-1's.

Currently have a high-end scope called Mk4 M5A2 which is 15x.

So they are there...just very rare drops apparently. Not sure exactly why it is this way however. Not one single vx-1 yet as of level 21. At least for me.

Cool thanks for the information. This is reassuring at least...now just to level 30! :cool:

I'm level 13 have have a x15 scope. Honestly though, x12 was enough. If you cant do head shots with a x12 scope you must have done your training in the marine corp.

Was not concerned with finding a 15x scope. That just came up to state there are different types of long range scopes. I am more interested in quality along with stat modifiers.

I'm grateful for this thread. I was starting to wonder if there are any scopes with actual stats. I just started finding 15x scopes at level 18, and I haven't even seen any 12x/15x with any stat boosters on it.

There are purple 12x scopes in the game if you prefer that magnification so i imagine you could find gold and blue ones aswell. I picked up one with headshot damage and critcal damage yesterday. Best bet is to find some gear with scavenging and get on that DZ grind. You will come across one eventually :cool:

Finally last night I randomly got 2 drops in a row of a Green 12x and then a Blue 15x. Guess all I needed to do was voice my concern on the forum and then the Division gods provided.

I find these scopes occasionally.

Only gripe I have is with the grey 12x scope being attached to any MM rifle you buy/craft/pick up, because it sometimes glitches and does not let me sell or deconstruct to get it to disappear.

Hi Guys

Can anyone tell me if it is at all possible to but a decent 12x scope or craft one? If so can they let me know where from please?

Also what's considered the best sniper atm. I've only come across the m44 from darkzone vendor in main base.

I see there is a police m17 sold by special vendor for P coins but stats not great.

Cheers

there is also a CQBSS scope but I don't like it because it puts a big red circle in the middle of the scope and I can't line up my head shots well...

as far as Marksman rifles go the M44 and the SRS are bolt action rifles, and the M1A, SCAR-H, MK17, and the MK20 which are "semi auto" are the only ones I have come across.

Most people prefer the M1A but I am finding I prefer the SRS

I like the M44 myself. (SRS is good too but has less individual bullet damage than the M44, but if you get a higher rarity/better roll SRS very well may be worth considering).

Less DPS, but you can pop off harder hitting individual shots while peek shooting in dangerous situations.

And the damage per bullet seems to influence stagger (as does rate of fire seem to, but only really applicable to automatics). I've even sometimes staggered elites with it which I havn't managed with other marksman rifles... not since I started challenging though my rifle is under-rolled AND under-levelled for level 30 lol, it's still "good enough" but just doesn't have the comparative oomph.

Also still have yet to find an appropriately levelled and rolled barrel mod... or ANY scopes that aren't grey...

Found 2 so far, green x12, first had a 1% headshot modifier, and the one I use now is a 2%. Not much, but since I use my marksman rifle almost exclusively and go for the grey matter...I think it's paying off.

I'm level 30 and last night I hit dark zone 30.

From my recollection I've seen the following:

x4 ACOG (Crosshairs)
x8 CQBSS (Horrible red circle)
x12 V something (Crosshairs)
x15 Mk5 Scope (Don't know)

I've seen about 5-10 each of the x4/x8/x12 scopes with all rarities except legendary yet. I've seen the x15 exactly once in all this time on the Dark Zone vendor in the base, when I didn't have the dark zone rank to buy it!

I prefer the x12 scope, but I haven't seen it with + Headshot damage, it only seems to get + Headshot kill XP. The x8 and x15 come with +headshot damage, but the x8 scope is horrible and imprecise and I've yet to find a x15 again :(
