So what do we say about the sights of the Sten gun and the designs derived from it like, Austen? (I also included the BSA Welgun)
First and foremost, the hole of the peep rear sight is way bigger than how it should be. And in my opinion, it’s fair to increase the size since it might have been unusable if it would be an exact copy of the real counterpart.
Here you can see the difference between the in-game model and the real deal:
Some people say that, sometime after Tunisia was released, the devs enlarged the hole of the peep rear sight, but I’m not so sure they ever changed it.They might have made Vickers-B more usable, but Sten has always had the same sights if I remember correctly.
Here you can see the sights on the different models.
Sten MK II
Some might say they like this sight. I don’t think it’s bad at all, quite the opposite. I perform very well with this sight, but in my opinion, it looks childish and cheap. The hole is too big and should be changed.
Sten MK III (premium)
This looks way more aesthetically pleasant. The ring has a fair size and the front sight pyramid is gone.
Sten MK II(S)
Considering the soldier holds the mag this sight picture might be the worst of them all? The rear sight itself is however much better than the non-suppressed MK II, in terms of aesthetic.
Since Austen is a fairly new model from last year, I would say the rear sight is the most historical accurate. The size of the hole is equal to MK II (S) but the whole thing is much bigger. They also put the camera further away, which I like.
Problem here: the stupid sling swivel blocking some part of your sight.
However, best of them all. The latest weapon to be added to this game: BSA Welgun
The position of the mag makes a major difference. I believe this ADS is clean and very nice. The camera is further back, like with Austen.
Also a plus for the front sight which resembles the one from Sten MK III.
So what you say?
You like it or not? What would you like to be changed?
