Well this explains it, I got this as a scav and thought the top of my thumb was the sight but it looks like it's clearly about an 1.5" above that

Yeah without any back sight the guns in Tarkov point up pretty high.

ID: gt5z9ew

A gun without a back sight will point upwards in your hand instead of being level

You also buy it from a trader like that lol. Same with some other guns like the ADAR, it only comes with its front sight/gas block. Seems like an oversight by BSG cause I'm otherwise unsure why they'd do this

ID: gt5uoza

Because a lot of modern AR platforms have no iron sights.... Tons come with just a bare rail across the top.

ID: gt5wnch

Yes. But in real life you don't go shooting in combat with a bare rail

ID: gt5vmif

Sure but it still doesn't make sense to give that to scavs

ID: gt6kl84

Remember almost 10 years ago when someone was doing gun rentals to TV shows on the cheap, tons of ARs showed up in shows missing any form of sight.

ID: gt6wt85

They should have some rudimentary sights, like some wire they bent into place

ID: gt63ccs

But why does the scav wrap their thumb around it like that? Who the fuck shoots like that, even with no sight?

There is NO sight...

The second thumb wrinkle is the sight lol

If I'm a random untrained guy just scavenging for whatever I can, I probably don't know that thumb-over-bore handling is even a thing. It feels really unnatural to begin with, especially without a sight.

I think it is probably because there are no "default" irons specific to that gun.

You have to put on irons yourself if you wanted them

Hip fire works the same no matter what.

do you really think the kind of OP who made this post can hipfire?

Its not tarkov without elite hipfire

Part of the new scav Karma. If you kill fellow scav you get no sights.

14 : Anonymous2021/04/02 21:38 ID: gt6lwtt

They could at least put some damn iron sights on it

15 : Anonymous2021/04/02 22:09 ID: gt6pe3p

I actually kind of like the lack of a sight because you can just use the tracers to adjust your aim(which I personally find easier)

16 : Anonymous2021/04/02 23:35 ID: gt6ysnd

Shame, shooting a fellow scav.

17 : Anonymous2021/04/03 00:51 ID: gt76ox5

How does one be a scav but also understand the concept of what a C-clamp is?

18 : Anonymous2021/04/03 02:24 ID: gt7g5ms

Not enough of a C clamp, real operators keep their fingers in front of the muzzle. It results in unbelievable accuracy due to the fear of shooting one's fingers

19 : Anonymous2021/04/03 03:23 ID: gt7lxsv

I just had that gun with irons, I mean, it feels alright, it’s just not full auto, which sucks

20 : Anonymous2021/04/02 16:50 ID: gt5nl9u

Its called C-clamp

ID: gt66e3e

Yes, and you wouldn’t be using it if it blocked your aim.

ID: gt68n7g

It wont if you use any kind of sight

21 : Anonymous2021/04/02 18:01 ID: gt5w9i0

I had 1 scav with it. Ran to an extract immediately... then proceeded to literally get my dome blown off like 5 feet from the extraction point by a player skav.

Pissed was an understatement.

22 : Anonymous2021/04/02 20:28 ID: gt6ds5x

why the fuck would you hold a gun like that ?

ID: gt6f5b1

To control muzzle climb.

23 : Anonymous2021/04/02 19:37 ID: gt67qtz

You're supposed to "scavenge" for an optic. What a concept!

25 : Anonymous2021/04/02 16:15 ID: gt5jabb

Imagine being a trained operative holding the gun like that lol. (Yes I know this is a scav run)

26 : Anonymous2021/04/02 16:48 ID: gt5nbp3

Thumb-over-bore (c-clamp) is an actual technique and is surprisingly good at helping to control muzzle climb. The issue is that there's no sights.

27 : Anonymous2021/04/02 16:18 ID: gt5jqwb

This is a real thing people do to control muzzle climb. It’s called a C-Clamp and people tend to do them with an actual scope and not guns without a sight.

28 : Anonymous2021/04/02 16:42 ID: gt5mk91

Its more common in sports shooting, not as much among military

29 : Anonymous2021/04/02 16:37 ID: gt5m04v

There’s no sight on this gun 🙂

30 : Anonymous2021/04/02 16:46 ID: gt5n30x

Imagine not knowing this is actually a proper technique.

31 : Anonymous2021/04/02 19:28 ID: gt66pjy

Yes this is an advanced grip actually.

32 : Anonymous2021/04/02 20:47 ID: gt6g3ve

Should use grip clamp c. C clamp grip is so flawed.

33 : Anonymous2021/04/02 22:27 ID: gt6rg2q

You forgot the TM. Also, the scav forgot the draw the front sight post on his hand. That video is hilarious.

34 : Anonymous2021/04/02 22:52 ID: gt6u5pf

Thumb-over-bore is excellent for controlling muzzle rise.

35 : Anonymous2021/04/02 21:02 ID: gt6hsmd

This gun on a scav is by far the dumbest thing ever encountered in this trash game, not for the gun itself, but by the lack of a basic ironsight.

I guess that's Nikita-logic-iron sight, the thumb up his ass.

36 : Anonymous2021/04/03 00:19 ID: gt73fb8

If its such a shit game why are you still here complaining about it and not playing something else?

Cause i like flaming those sneaky fking russians.

I've had this happen with AK74u as well

39 : Anonymous2021/04/02 23:26 ID: gt6xv01

Using MOE handguard, its not a bug its actually called c-clamp and lots of trainer people use it to help the muzzle climb

40 : Anonymous2021/04/02 22:35 ID: gt6safp

What is the gun called

41 : Anonymous2021/04/02 23:04 ID: gt6vfh7

That is just how it is. Same with the mosin and missing sights haha

42 : Anonymous2021/04/03 04:14 ID: gt7qive

MDR with no sights always cracks me up, because you essentially just float behind the gun as if there was a sight to look through

43 : Anonymous2021/04/02 23:08 ID: gt6vwft

When C-Clamp stance is life.

But pimp that thing out and my god its amazing.

It’s really no different from the other 9x19 semi-auto weapons.

46 : Anonymous2021/04/02 23:53 ID: gt70pfb

Wait. Scavs can spawn with this?

47 : Anonymous2021/04/03 00:05 ID: gt71zqo

If you make a macro you can have a fully auto gun with 20 recoil... and probably get banned!

48 : Anonymous2021/04/03 00:33 ID: gt74wdn

I see that on most guns without a sight. the scale of hand and gun is a bit off I think

49 : Anonymous2021/04/03 04:13 ID: gt7qg7o

not entirely, it's a pretty small rifle irl as well

50 : Anonymous2021/04/03 00:36 ID: gt7579i

Fucking RAIDERS spawn with this thing with no sight lmao

51 : Anonymous2021/04/03 02:36 ID: gt7hdif

I'm pretty stoked that it spawns on scavs though. You can pointfire that thing like a paintball gun and have no issues. At least the Saiga-9 has fixed irons but I think it's a fair tradeoff to remove them from this gun as it's all around better.
