When you look down the Iron sights of any infantry weapon in vanilla Arma 3 some
of the sites are very small, making it challenging to hit anything, so ingame you have to press your zoom button (if you want) which brings the sites closer.
Just to note this is an old addon i put together with some help a few yrs ago, i just decided to make it available for my favorite community as i thought i should share something i wont play without!
What does this addon do?
What this addon does is it will automatically zoom your iron sights & attachments sights which eliminate the need for you to have to press your zoom button freeing up the button for other things.
What games/mods does this works for?
- Vanilla Arma 3
- Marksman DLC
- CUP_Weapons - (there are a few that wont zoom)
- May work for some added/modded weapons but they need to be tested.
The weapons this works for includes the following:
- Assault Rifles
- Submachine guns
- Machine guns
- Arma 3/Apex/Marksman DLC's weapon attachments
Looking for my IFA3 Lite version?

Removed the RHS files, as there will be another steam workshop page where you can get the RHS version.
If you dont want or play with RHS then now you wont be forced to run the mod, or have to take the RHS files just to run the vanilla arma3 version of the zoom.
