A Holographic Weapon Sight is a non-magnifying gun sight that allows the user to look through a glass optical window and see a cross hair reticle image superimposed at a distance on the field of view. The hologram of the reticle is built into the window and is illuminated by a laser diode.
In Battlefield Play4Free, all assault rifles, sniper rifles, SMGs and LMGs (all weapons supporting attachments) can be equipped with a Holosight. The differences seem to be purely aesthetic, although they can increase accuracy by a little and they can free up some open space instead of using the closed out iron sights. The M14 EBR is equipped with a Holosight by default. When weapon customization was introduced, all non-pistol weapons gained the ability to equip a Holographic Sight.

The HOLO (1X) is a primary weapon optic featured in Battlefield 4. Unlike its counterpart in Battlefield 3, there are now small tick markers under the center-most dot to aid the player when engaging targets over longer distances and has the same amount of zoom as the Red Dot Sights.
Like all other Red dot and 1x Holographic sights, it is compatible with the Magnifier (2X).
In multiplayer, the HOLO (1X) serves as the American equivalent of the Russian PKA-S and Chinese HD-33 1X Holographic sights. It is the default 1x Holographic sight unlocked for American and European weapons through progression, being unlocked for use on all other weapons through Battlepacks.
- In the earlier stages of Battlefield 3, the Holographic Sight had its reticle when unzoomed.
- The optic is referred to as the "EOTech" in the game files of Battlefield 3.
