Garena Free Fire has a pretty robust system of guns, with almost every single one of them customizable. Weapon modifications are great and all, but you can usually live without them - except for one thing: the scope. It is an essential part of gameplay in Free Fire, especially when the game is a battle royale with a lot of medium and long-range combat.

In this article, we would list out all scopes in the game and figure out which one of them is the most useful.

1 - Red Dot Scope

The only scope in Free Fire without any kind of magnification whatsoever - the Red Dot is usually used on close to medium range fights in which you can already see your enemies clearly. Popping it up would let you see exactly where the bullet would hit and increase the accuracy of your shots.

The weakness of this scope is that you can not zoom in to have a close vision when it comes to long distances. This is why among Free Fire all scopes, Red Dot is the least useful one.

2 - 2x Scope

The best close to medium range scope, which can actually aid you in landing headshots and such. It is the easiest scope to be used in-game - if you are not good at the other scopes, this one would be your best practice method. You will need a more powerful scope if you’re having a sniper rifle.

3 - 4x Scope

This is the top choice to equip on an assault rifle or long-range DMR like the M14. This scope is something you have to practice to get better in Free Fire. The 4x magnifier is an excellent level of scout - you can see your enemies and attack on them right away, unlike the 8x. Overall, this is the most useful scope in Free Fire.

4 - Thermal Scope

This is a special scope that first appeared in an arcade game mode, in which the battle royale happens at night. Thermal Scope will show you the ‘Thermal sight’ with its green lens and reveal the position of hiding enemies based on the temperature. A human body will be spotted in red or orange via the Thermal sight.


5 - Sniper Scope (8x)

The most powerful scope in-game - the 8x scope comes attached to any sniper rifle. Overall, this scope should only be used on sniper rifles, as they are the only gun with the ranges for them. While the scope is useful to pro snipers as it offers an extra accurate vision from a very long distance, it would become a disadvantage at the last minute in close-ranged battles.
