“The current (Digital Threat sight) is big to be obstructive to balance it out,” deadend said. “The red dot would give more area to see but also be hard to aim on target so it would also balance it out in a way.”

As an added note, they also think that changing the sight’s color from red to white would give players a much easier time of tracking enemies since they have a red outline in game.
