Obzor 1P63 Tactical Combat Scope w/ Solar Dual White/Green Multipurpose Reticle, AK/AKM Mount. This is the newest collimator made for the Kalashnikov. Representing a new generation of Russian optics production, it is already being used by elite units in Russia’s Ministry of Internal Affairs (MVD): police, Spetznaz Special Forces, OMON, etc. Such units aren’t going to use anything but the best. The Kashtan and the Obzor are use leading edge technologies developed by the NPZ factory. The scope reticle changes its shape in response to light conditions so you literally have three different reticles for daylight, twilight and night conditions. It also has a lever activated tinted lens filter that gives great reticle clarity in bright light conditions, it is a very cool feature and makes this collimator one of our favorites. It not only fills the role of the traditional CQB short range/fast acquisition sight, but also has unique features designed specifically for longer range combat shooting. The reticle and scope ability is geared for a single shot kill on an AK-74N at 400-700 meters. It’s fully coated prismatic lens system provides a remarkable, high contrast, wide angle field of view allowing for fast acquisition of moving and spaced targets. The advanced battery-free, illuminated white&green reticle allows the Obzor be used in ANY conditions. You have an unlimited field of view and maximum ability to register incoming targets. The precision optic system combined with the striking field of view produced by the high quality lens system provides far superior accuracy at distances exceeding those capable with iron sights. The scope has very accurate windage and elevation adjustments in small increments (every turret’ click moves POI by 3 cm at 100 m). The special protective lens coatings protect the scope from scratching and fouling in the extreme battlefield conditions where it was designed to operate. A light-dividing mechanical and coating system produces exceptional dual visualization of the target and reticle at the same time so you see both in high resolution for better targeting.

anonymous asked:

What skills have you gotten so far?

You mean only character skills, right?

I got:

Momota: Moonwalk (Reduced recoil for crashing your car in Brain Drive)

Ouma: Kind Lie (Reduced damage for lying)

Shinguuji: Supernatural Phenomenom (Reticle automatically moves to the weak point with Concentration)

Yumeno: Bibbidi-Bobbodi-Boo (Reveals which bullet is the correct if you take too much time)

Chabashira: Enten no Ri (Can cut from any direction in Rebbutal Showdown)

Shirogane: 2D Love (Some Climax Inference panels are already filled from the get-go)

Angie: God’s Intuition (The center light from Hangman’s Gambit gets to full size instantly)

Something I’ve noticed a lot of Widowmaker and McCree players do:

after each shot, you jerk the reticle a bit to the right.

why?? im friends w/ both a mccree main and a widow main and they both never noticed they were doing it and couldn’t give an answer to why when asked

Is it just a reflex? Is there some hidden benefit like canceling out the recoil??

what a mysterious quirk

Imagine Wash sitting with Carolina in silence on the ground, waiting for word on the fate of the Reds and Blues.  Out of the corner of his eye, Wash watches Carolina drawing in the dirt in a distracted sort of way - a holographic lock. She adds lines around it, like a child would draw a sun, then seems to realize what she has done and reaches out to erase it. Wash grabs her wrist to stop her, and next to it he draws a cupcake with a reticle on it. Carolina makes a sound that might have been a laugh, draws a door and murmurs “Wyoming”, getting a genuine laugh from Wash.  The icons slowly spread around them in a circle. She didn’t ask why Connie was a daisy with a smiling face, and he didn’t ask why South looked like a turkey on a platter with wheels - they accept each other’s interpretation without question.  They finally run out of names, and settle back into stillness. The peace lasts only a short while.  Carolina’s breath catches, and as Wash turns to look at her, she presses a finger into the dirt between them. She freezes there, then  seems to give up, her her head falling to her chest, shoulders slumping.  She cups her hand over the dot protectively.  Her voice is choked to nothing, but he can still read her lips - “Epsilon.”

Grids & Guides: new notebook

I obviously love getting new notebooks, and when I saw this sitting alone on the shelf, I just had to have it. 

The end pages are a lovely electric blue. This notebook is made by Princeton Architectural Press. Grids & Guides is its actual name, but what attracted me to it was how varied the page layouts were. 

There are Cartesian grids, log-log grids, reticle grids, polar coordinate graphs, storyboard pages, ledger tables, isometric grids and architectural plan graphs.

There are also random informational pages sprinkled throughout. For the curious mind, it provides something to chew on or pick ideas to start from.

  • Chara: What is love? ‘Love’ is making a shot to the knees of a target 120 kilometers away using an Aratech sniper rifle with a tri-light scope. Statement: This definition, I am told, is subject to interpretation. Obviously, 'love’ is a matter of odds. Not many meatbags could make such a shot, and strangely enough, not many meatbags would derive love from it. Yet for me, love is knowing your target, putting them in your targeting reticle, and together, achieving a singular purpose… against statistically long odds…
  • Submission
i don’t hate genji mains but i won’t deny my bitterness

genji: I need healing!
me: Understood.
genji: I need healing!
me: Understood.
genji: I need healing!
me: Group up with me!
genji: I need healing!
me, pointing my reticle at him: COME TO ME FOR HEALING

@leaspeed6 leveling up!

“I have some engineering friends and they want all scopes perfectly level and uncanted. Using a @badgerordnance “dead zero” scope leveling tool with rail, you can perfectly level a scope with mounts using its built-in bubble level and fine adjustments. Then you look through scope at a plumb line or other vert/horiz point of reference and rotate your scope so there is no cant in reticle. In this case, we looked out back of kitchen to reference lines taped to backyard wall. You can do this directly on the rifle as well if you level that but it can be a lot trickier. This is also a good time to mount a level to the scope for when you are out shooting, as you know it will be perfectly aligned without cant. I found this pretty interesting of a process!”

Psycho Pass Movie Prologue

[…though men were perched upon living stilts which keep on growing, reaching the height of church-towers, until walking becomes difficult and dangerous…]*



Year 2116


A man laid on the stone pavement. His body hidden behind a corner of a ruin. The tropic sunrays were strong; through his western clothes, he could feel the burning heat. However, this helplessness like he had already given up to the heat and the cold, hadn’t subsided during his wander overseas. The smell of heated weeds and stones filled up his nostrils, the man breathed in deeply.

On the hilltop, religious ruins built of flat big heaped up stones. A half destroyed column caught in many battles and a statue exposed their pitiful figure like a cheese chewed by rats. Fine friezes of a sculptural relief on a wall had been spared but the original shape, mostly pierced by many bullet holes, hadn’t been preserved.

Here and there, red hibiscus flowers bloomed from cracks in the stone pavement. Pale red petals, like they had grown sucking blood, were swaying in the wind.

The name of the man laid down was Kougami Shinya.

A detective who had killed a man and fled from Japan.

….Did I killed a man?

If someone had told him so, that’s how Kougami would have argued.

I have only fulfilled my duty. A detective’s job is not to judge people. And yet, what if an evil that can’t be judged by the law exists? A detective’s job isn’t also deal with evil to make up for the law’s flaws?  

So Kougami deemed, and brought things to conclusion pulling the trigger.

Wandering overseas, he had reforged himself and now, Kougami was in SEAUn. With the world entered in an era of chaos, even if some nations had tried to get away with a reorganization, finally they were a mosaic of failed dictatorships and civil wars. In this country, Kougami had been taking part to the guerilla battles of the democratization movement as a military adviser.

“….they’ve come”

The man standing next to Kougami was Sem, the leader of guerrilla.

He hadn’t asked about his past but, from the traces of wounds and his custom to the fights, Kougami conjectured if afterall he wasn’t an ex-military.

On the top of the small hill, behind the stone ruins, Kougami and Sem had prepared a spot to watch and wait for a chance to shoot.

Taking in Sem’s words, Kougami took a look into the distance.

Chuan Han’s governative troops were coming.

A long civil war had been raging in the Southeast Asia Union. But the situation had a deep change. Chuan Han, who had been no more than a leader of a military cast, joined forces with Japanese Government, the Sybil System. The measure of the crime coefficients… the edification of the maritime special ward Shambala Float, that he’d been entrusted to administrate from Japan.

…..what’s happening?


Caught between the opposition force and the nations, in a short time Chuan Han had completed all the arrangements. And then, a unit of drones provided by the Japanese government began the massacre under the pretext of maintaining public order.

At that time, Kougami Shinya had already taken part to the guerrilla fight and was trying to overthrow Chuan Han’s strong-arm methods.

….Chuan Han is a dictator. Existence is utterly incompatible with the japanese government way, in other words the Sybil System. The governmental forces will collapse from the inside….that was Kougami and Sem’s prediction.

However, that didn’t happen. Shambala float was going well in trial operations, and if one had said say that chairman Han was compliant to Japanese government, he would have described well Sian government situation.

Then, the anti governative troops were being killed like insects.


A column of governative troops was passing through the country road. Military vehicles for troops transport, an armored car used by the commander, and a Ganesh….a tank made in Japan with many robotic arms. An entire armored squadron. If they had let them go, in the guerrilla camp it would have been another massacre.

That’s why they had to settle it there.

Carrying an assault rifle on his shoulder, Sem set up the spotting scope. That scope had a laser apparatus for distance measurement and an anemometer. An anti-material rifle was standing on its legs in front of Kougami. Ready to fire in a prone stance, Kougami introduced a sharp huge bullet in the open fire chamber.


When Kougami looked into the scope, computer graphics and a variety of informations were displayed. The image of a shooting correction device synchronized with the laser apparatus for distance measurement. A cursor was floating on the position of the estimated projectile impact.

The column of governative troops vehicles was approaching the scope centre.

The distance was 600 meters.

“The wind direction’s changed”, sharply said Sem.

This time he was Kougami’s spotter.

The spotter had the role of sniper’s assistant.

In case of carrying out long range shots with a big rifle, using a scope, the scale factor necessarily increased but this lead to a narrow field of vision. The spotter followed that.

He assisted with the trajectory computation and observed the impact.

Since the screen shook in the moment the rifle fires, the great advantage was having someone other than the main marksman to observe the impact.

“The wind has started blowing from 3 o’clock direction. Just a few minutes ago it was the opposite”

“Even if the wind is changing, it doesn’t reflect in the shooting correction device….."   Kougami said in a low voice.

 "Am I wrong?"  Sem said.

"No, you’re not. It’s the shooting device who’s failing……”

“Damn it. Anyway it’s an equipment of so many decades ago”

“Let’s fix it”

Kougami turned off the shooting correction device. The computer graphics disappeared from the scope and the usual reticle switched to a mil-dot*.


On the portable terminal on his wrist, a hologram was displayed. It was the trajectory computing graphic of the anti-material rifle Kougami was using.

Peering into that graphic, Sem said.

“5 clicks to the right”


Said so, Kougami with careful hands clicked on the windage* knob on the side of the scope.

“Can I go?”

“I’ve already added the spin drift to the wind force….] said Sem.

” The angle also is such that has not much influence on the impact. No problem!“

Kougami placed his fingers on the trigger.

Thanks to the shooting practice gained, he aimed without even a closed eye. Only real snipers aimed with both eyes open.

Aiming to the troop-transport vehicle at the head of the column, he shot.

Blowing a tire, he stopped the movement.

"Hit” Sem confirmed the impact.

…..and now the next one.

Breaking the front axle, he prevented the forward movement of the column.

As next target, he aimed at the end of the column. The second shoot went to the tire of the armored car.

By doing so, he had blocked the road in front and behind and now, he was free to aim to the favorite target.

This time the favorite target was—–napalm ammunitions prepared for the roads of this country zone.

Fire bombs in which a thickener was added to a high performance combustion agent.

Kougami charged an incendiary oil bomb into the anti-material rifle and launched it.

It raised a great explosion. Also the antitank mines laid around detonated, creating a chain. Beautiful fireworks bloomed from the ground.

Flames dancing together with a bursting of destructive power.

“Let’s change place” said Sem.


With a temperature over 1000°C, napalm ammunitions kept burning for about 10 minutes. In what kind of tanks with robotics arm there weren’t internal precision equipments. Behind a curtain of black smoke and flames, with a twitch, the Ganesh silhouette crumbled falling in pieces.




*This first sentence is taken from the book “Time regained” by Marcel Proust. Proust style is rather complex and elaborated, so I didn’t translate it by myself. I searched for an official English version.

*Mil-dot or mil dot reticle: a mean of determining distances to targets, establishing leads for moving targets, and for alternate aiming points for windage and elevation holds

*Windage: The point or degree at which the wind gauge or sight of a rifle or gun must be set to compensate for the effect of the wind.

Barrett M99A1

Single shot bullpup bolt-action rifle chambered in 12.7x99mm (50 BMG). Intended as a competition rifle, the M99 has been used to win several long range and 50 caliber shooting events. Being a single shot it’s considerably cheaper than it’s semi-auto big brothers; the M99 is about $4,000 or less, no optics of course. The EoTech in the photo has the 50 BMG reticle and can be used on the Barrett. (GRH) 

After watching the SWL combat stream today, I think it looks great! the tutorial level looks much more interesting and instructive than how it was previously. My only complaint is some aspects of the reticle mechanics. For example, it seemed as through your character always faced the direction your reticle was facing, and you could only attack the target your reticle was on.

In this game I play sometimes called Skyforge, your character will only face the direction of your reticle in combat or face the locked target, so you can look around or swap to a new target without pulling off your current target. Your character will also only face the direction of your reticle in combat or face the locked target, so you can look around or swap to a new target without pulling off your current target.

I don’t want to compare the streamed SWL combat to the Skyforge combat however, as we’ve only seen a little bit and its still in beta, but I hope they will make the reticle-based camera combat a little more lenient. I know they said in the stream they will be adding a zoom feature, so that’s good to hear. 

So You Want to Use a Charger

So you’ve been seeing these guys with chargers, managing to be threats to your whole team from those little alcoves, shooting over all the choke points from a mile away, and generally being a huge thorn in your team’s side. Which is weird, because you can never really get the hang of these things yourself; how do these guys manage to even be useful in Turf Wars so consistently? Well, with this guide, hopefully you can be on your way towards becoming a dangerous source of pressure from half a map away.

“Hahaha! Oh little red, little red. Laugh while you can because Roman Torchwick is back in town! Mwahahahahaha!”
I had to count the amount of “ha’s” in that second laugh..oof.
Anyways, Roman Torchwick Wallpaper! Even a shot of his Melodic Cudgel’s reticle going up and him tossing his cane up in the air as bonuses. Hope you enjoy! 

Tbh I think Dirk would have a massive sword superiority complex and get really passive and dissmisive whenever Jake and Roxy begin groaning amongst themselves about kickback and reload times and aching arms.

Until Jake and Roxy get tired of his eye-rolling and aggressively shove one of Jake’s pistols in his hand like come on bigshot let’s see you do it.

And Dirk likes mechanical design and he knows how guns work hypothetically so he cocks it and gets a distant boulder perfectly aligned in his mental reticle and spares a glance back at the two of them like uh huh big fuckin’ deal kiddos until he actually fires it and a bullet goes sailing five feet to the left and accidentally murders the last surviving tinkerbull that got teleported with Jake’s house.

He sprains his wrist in the process and has to keep it on ice for a few days while Jake and Roxy continuously call him variations of “Goldeneye” and “High Noon”
