"A High Power Optics Package that provides an armored vehicle driver the ability to engage and destroy targets from greater range. It effectively provides stand-off distance while still permitting accurate fire."
— In-game description
The High Power Optics Package is a vehicle specialization featured in Battlefield: Bad Company 2 and is obtained after acquiring 8000 experience points with any vehicle or emplacement. When activated, it zooms the screen in or out on the crosshair for the driver of the vehicle in order to line up shots for long range targets easier. Therefore, it is great for Tank drivers who intend on engaging their targets from a long distance with ease.
This is an active specialization, meaning it can only be used by the driver of the vehicle and that it must be activated by user input to function. It also does not function on armored cars, naval vessels, or Quad Bikes as they all do not have driver-mounted weapons.
