The first new weapon optic in some time – we realized (FOV slider issue aside) that the calibration marks for the PSO version currently in game just won’t work for the version which will be necessary for the VSS – the ballistics of the 9x39mm bullets it fires is dramatically different. This means we’ll essentially have to create a new reticle which is calibrated for the slower 9x39mm and add it as a new class to the game.
The problem then is that there will be 2 or more versions (if we add also a calibrated version for 5.45×39, 5.56x45mm, and 7.62x39mm) of the same PSO scope spawning and that’s just a bit silly for our purposes. Therefore, Peter decided we will simply spawn the appropriate version of the PSO already on either the VSS or SVD and not as a “loose” item spread through the map. The Kashtan will become the loose item which players can find and use on the AK platform.” C. Torchia
