They even copied Captain Price's hat from COD. Shame.
Been playing Risen 2 after having recently completed Risen 1. I have no idea why these games are getting so much hate / bad reviews, they are absolutely amazing!
So here is how the story goes. We managed to grab an SKS with ammo in Olsha. Then we decided to go to the nearest airstrip. There was a dead body with M4A1 there but when we tried to grab the gear some guy shot at us couple of times from the distance. In the end we managed to get the weapon but it was scary as hell. Then we moved to Electro... that was stupid. Electro is a no mans land, again we came under fire. I killed one guy who( I think) was shooting at us, he had an SKS. We were about to go inna woods when some other guy killed both of us. Six hours well spent.
Some b-sides of Clown Hiking Sim 2014.
Missed those two jokers by half a minute. Good. I had no ammo. In airstrip and military bases people usually just shoot first.
Suicide by player. He/she wanted to create another char and attempted to jump from the building but failed. We helped like good people we are( ask anyone).
And the most tense moment so far... some guys were trying to sneak up one me. I ran. I ran so far away( for half an hour).
I would imagine iron sights are irrelevant if you have a scope. Why would they need to line up?
Sights have to be "zeroed" to a specific range. They'll be aligned to a specific point maybe 50-100m ahead, so aiming dead center at that distance will hit the target. At a shorter or longer distance the bullet will hit above or below the crosshairs. Many guns have adjustable sights so you can estimate the range to your target and dial it in, Arma and Red Orchestra let you do this. Other scopes can have markers for distance, or simply be fixed and leave you to guess.
In that screenshot it's probably a scope that's been mounted on a rifle in game rather than a dedicated sniper rifle. The iron sight ring at the front is designed to be used with the little sight you can see at the base of the scope. The scope's higher up, so aligning it with the iron sights would result in aiming at a point right in front of the barrel. In real life the dials you can see would be used to adjust it independently, I'm not sure how much adjustment DayZ allows.
