Only available in multiplayer, the Ballistic (40X) is a sniper rifle exclusive optic featured in Battlefield 4. It is unlocked at 130 kills for all sniper rifles, and is attached to the standard M82A3.
As the name suggests, it has an extremely high magnification of 40x, the highest magnification in the game, which makes it ideal for extreme long-range shots. The reticle features mil-dots as well several distance measurements to help compensate for bullet drop when firing long-range shots.
Due to its incredibly high magnification, the scope should mostly be used on large maps such as Golmud Railway and attached to long-range oriented rifles, like the SRR-61. Engagements should mostly be left at long range, but the Variable Zoom and Canted Ironsights can help the player when dealing with closer conflicts. On the other hand, the Range Finder compliments the scope well by helping the player with zeroing for long range shots.
- In Battlefield 4, 3-12x50 USMC M8541 is written on top of the scope. Schmidt & Bender (mispelled as Schmitd) is written on the right side of the scope. Premier Reticles is written on the left side of the scope. Schmidt & Bender and Premier Reticles developed the M8541 for the USMC.
