Battlefield 3 Laser Sight Guide
In this Battlefield 3 Laser sight guide, you will not only discover
what the laser sight does and how to unlock it but also what the best strategies for using this gun are and
who it works best for. You would be surprised at how many players do not use this secondary weapon attachment
Battlefield 3 Laser Sight - Function and Overview
The Laser Sight mounts a laser on your gun which shines a laser out to where you are aiming (not too
surprising). Since this laser does not disperse and stays concentrated, it basically allows you to aim at a target
without actually aiming (i.e. shooting from the hip). Of course, your gun is more accurate when you aim, but it at
least points you in the right direction.
As an added side effect, your laser slightly blinds the target if you shine it on their face. It is not quite as
strong as the tactical light, but it can blur the vision a bit. You have to be very accurate when you point it
though as the laser beam is very tight.
Laser Sight Downsides
The blinding effect of course lets your opponent know that you are aiming at them. In my opinion, this alert is
actually more detrimental than the blinding effect is a positive. It allows players to duck out of range before you

This is amplified by distance. The further you are from your opponent, the more the blinding effect will be a
warning rather than a bonus for you.
Unlocking the Laser Sight
You unlock the Laser Sight just like all other secondary weapon attachments - by getting more kills. However,
this is one of the later attachments you unlock so you will need a lot of kills with a single gun in order to
unlock it. Expect to play at least for a few hours with the same gun (and not go 0-20) in order to unlock this
Battlefield 3 Laser Sight Strategy Guide
The Battlefield 3 Laser Sight is one of the top attachments for short to mid-ranged combatants. In fact, it is
my favorite attachment when using an assault rifle or carbine in close-quarters combat (such as the metro portion
of Operation Metro).
The Laser Sight is a "lite" Tactical Light - it does not blind the opponent nearly as much but it also is much
less likely to give away your position to the opponent. Even when you shine the beam on your opponent's face, it
hardly tells them where you are just rather than you are aiming at them.
The Laser Sight's real strength is for those that want to fire their gun without actually aiming. This is
perfect when you are playing the Assault Class and are about to head through some close quarters as you advance on
The best way to use the Battlefield 3 Laser sight for close combat is to spray your gun (automatics work
best for this) while strafing left and right. Meanwhile, you can use your aiming joystick to keep the laser
centered directly over the enemy's body. You will take them out in a second or two and can dodge most bullets due
to your strafing.
An Assault Rifle with a Laser Sight can handle even players that are camping. The only real thing that stops
this in close combat is if you get too close to a person using a Shotgun with Buckshot. You can of course beat
players using a Shotgun by keeping your range. With the Laser Sight, you would be surprised at how far away you can
take down players without actually aiming your Assault Rifle.
This is best combined with an automatic gun which has a low kickback such as the M416. You do not want to have
an Assault Rifle with a lot of kickback like the M16A3 or AK-74Mas this will mess up your aim. Of course good
players can make these work, but its much easier and more effective to use an M416.
Combine your Laser Sight with a Foregrip for best results. The reduction in horizontal kick makes it much easier
to keep your Laser Sight aimed on the target while spraying your gun and strafing.
Avoid This Newbie Mistake
A lot of players think that the Laser Sight will somehow improve their aim when attacking from a very long
range. This is not the case because in Battlefield 3, Snipers have to account for bullet drop. This means that if
you fire at a player across the map, you will have to aim slightly above his head as gravity will pull the bullet
towards the ground as it speeds across the map.
This means that your laser is not accurate from a very long distance, so there is no point in even trying to use
it for these types of attacks. You will only let your opponent know that he is being targeted, which gives him time
to go prone and take cover.
Battlefield 3 Laser Sight Guide - Conclusion
To sum it all up, the Laser Sight allows you to get an idea of where you are aiming without actually holding
down the sights on your gun. This lets you shoot from the hip with much more accuracy.
The Battlefield 3 laser Sight can also partially blind your opponent if shined directly in them, but at the same
time that warns your opponent that you are attacking. The blinding effect is to your advantage in short-ranged
combat, but it acts as more as a warning sign for your opponent when you are trying to attack from a long
