A Red Dot Sight is a reflex sight for most two handed weapons that gives a nearly unobstructed view of the shooter's target unaffected by parallax or distance while giving them a crosshair from which to shoot. This makes it regarded as a fast, easy to use and versatile sight for police, military and hunting purposes alike.
A red dot sight appears in Battlefield 2 on the AKS-74u, M4A1, SCAR-L, SCAR-H, and P90 weapons as a fixed sight. Although the frame of the sight is different for each weapon (a Kobra sight for the AKS-74u, an Aimpoint M68 sight for the M4A1, SCAR-L and SCAR-H, and an FN micro red dot for the P90), the actual dot is the same amongst all of the different sights.
