Pso1
PSO-1
Type: Scope addon

The PSO-1 is a optical scope specifically designed for the SVD Dragunov as a telescopic sight by Novosibirsk instrument-making factory around 1964, it has a x4 magnification. However, the common found in-game PSO-1 scopes only have a x2 magnification despite their description . The PSO-1 can be mounted on any Soviet or Russian made weapon such as the AK-74 and the AN-94 (although in SOC some weapons might not be able mount it) and features the same magnification as the SUSAT Scope. Although unlike the SUSAT the PSO-1's view includes a more visible drop compensator system which makes shooting at distant targets an easier task as one can easily adjust his aim when aiming at long range targets, with some practice this feature also makes Eastern Bloc assault weapons the best when attempting to convert it into a sniper analogue.

Compatibility

The PSO-1 Scope can be mounted to Warsaw Pact weapons. However, in Clear Sky and Call of Pripyat upgrades might be necessary in order to mount the scope.

Locations

The PSO-1 scope can be difficult to obtain in the beginning both Shadow of Chernobyl and Clear Sky.

Shadow of Chernobyl

Bullet will give the player a PSO-1 Scope if the player assists him on his ambush against the Bandits in the Dark Valley. The box in Borov's office may contain the scope. Mercenaries in the Wild Territory use the PSO-1 scope on their AK's, and some Loners in the camp in the Army Warehouses use this scope, such as Smartass. The Military begin to use it in the Red Forest, after disabling the Brain Scorcher.

Clear Sky

One PSO-1 scope is on a tower in the Swamps, in an open box. Several Duty members use it, and it can be purchased from most traders in later parts of the game.

Call of Pripyat

Standard x4 PSO-1 scopes can be found attached primarily to Dutyer rifles, as well as most Monolith soldiers using the AN-94 or AS VAL. Other versions are also available from traders and stashes scattered around. As usual, they don't give the weapon attached any bonuses aside from different sighting.

Scope Variants

  • x4 PSO-1 scope - The standard scope from previous games. In the Inventory screen, the lens portion is colored blue entirely for easy identification. Used by many Loners, Bandits, Duty members, Military soldiers, and Monolith fanatics.
  • x1.6 PSO-1 scope - Close-quarters variant, lower zoom. The lens portion has a small blue strip for identification. Commonly sold by Owl.
  • x4 PSO-1 NVG scope - Variant with passive, 2nd-generation nightvision enabled. The lens portion is a bright green. Occasionally sold by Owl after doing his missions.
  • x4 PSO-1 Target scope - A scope with a built in target-identification system. Like the FN F2000 and SVD's scope upgrades, it behaves like binoculars, locking onto and identifying subjects as friend-or-foe. Unlike the others, its end is a bright red. Almost impossible to acquire. Can be purchased from Hawaiian.

Trivia

  • The magnification of the scopes in all three games is always less than it should be. 4x magnification models only have a 2x magnification, while the 1.6x model only has a 1.3x magnification.
  • There is a bug in Call of Pripyat with the Targeting PSO-1 scope. When attaching it to a weapon and putting the weapon in a stash, the scope might turn into a regular PSO-1 scope. This can be avoided by keeping the scope unmounted while in stashes.
