Islands of Nyne will allow players to modify their weapons. Each weapon type will have their own, specific mods, allowing you to tailor them to the combat situation on the go, such as when swapping from a holographic Sight to an ACOG might be more beneficial to long range capability.
Contestants can freely swap between compatible optics and attachments in their inventory with the F1-F3 keys. This is instantaneous on weapons with compatible attachments.
Scopes[edit | edit source]
There are currently 5 magnifications for weapons. 1x, 1.5x, 4x, 6x and 8x Every attachable scope's reticle is currently red, with the exception of the 8x,which just like the Elite variants of the M9A1 and Sako-85 is stylised blue. It is unknown at this time whether or not Ion will allow personalization of scope reticles
1x[edit | edit source]
Every weapon has it's own unique iron sights for a 1x magnification. While crude, can provide vital aiming assistance where having no usable sight would leave you aimless.
1.2x (Actual magnification unknown)[edit | edit source]
The red dot is what its name implies, a sight with a red dot as the reticle. It can be applied to all weapons. The models on the Assault Rifles, Shotguns, Sniper Rifles, SMG's all differ from the Red Dot Sight on the M9A1, which appears to me a scaled down version similar similar to the Trijicon RMR
1.5x[edit | edit source]
The Holographic Sight (Holo sight) is a sight that projects it's reticle center optic, presented as a circle with a central dot. It provides slightly better magnification than it's sister competition, the Red Dot Sight. Due to the design of this sight, it can be fairly obstructive to your peripheral vision, as the housing is large, but nonetheless, a very useable optic that gives you a slight boost to your magnification at the expense of a slight loss in vision. Every weapon class except pistols can use the Holographic Sight. The Holographic Sight is modelled after the EOTech XPS2, albeit with a red reticle as opposed to green.
4x[edit | edit source]
The Advanced Combat Optical Gunsight (ACOG) is the only 4x magnification sight available in Islands of Nyne. It's reticle is presented as a red chevron indicating point of aim. This Scope bridges the gap between Marksman Scope and dedicated Sniper Scope. It is particularly useful on Assault Rifles where it can provide a welcome boost to your weapon's reach and can be used as a viable substitute to the Sako-85, should you not find one. It also can be used on the Sako-85 Sniper Rifle if you prefer unhindered peripheral vision and closed range engagements. Only the Assault Rifles and Sniper Rifles can equip an ACOG. The ACOG is modelled on the Trijicon ACOG
6x[edit | edit source]
The 6x Scope is the only scope if it's magnification in Islands of Nyne. It is exclusive to the Sniper Rifles with the exception of the CX-Storm Assault Rifle.. It is presented in-game as a central red-Dot accented by a black line leading up the center of the scope. This scope is the bread and butter of any marksman who wants to punctuate a bullet to the head with lethal precision.
8x[edit | edit source]
Just like the 6x Scope, the 8x is only available to the Sako-85 Sniper Rifle. It is functionally identical to the 6x in every regard other than magnification. It is a incredibly rare spawn in the world and can frequently be found inside Beam Drops, along with the Sako-85 Elite, where it will benefit greatly from the Elite variant's improved handling characteristics. Aesthetically, it's coloured blue, as opposed to red, to indicate it's rarity just like the other Elite weapons/items.
Others[edit | edit source]
There are currently two other modifiers for weapons, the suppressor and the laser sight.
Suppressor[edit | edit source]
Suppressors, as self explanatory as they are will quieten (but not completely eliminate) the sound signature of whatever weapon they are attached to. This comes with a few downsides, such as more bullet drop at range and less velocity. Overall, a suppressor on a rifle, particularly the Sako-85 Sniper Rifle will allow you to eliminate contestants before they even know where they're being shot from.
Laser Sight[edit | edit source]
The Laser sight mounts to the side rail of your weapon to help with accuracy. It currently only assists in unaimed Hipfire by an unknown amount. The laser is visible by other people, so it may potentially give you away without you knowing it.
