Firstly, the LW3 Tundra‘s optic has been altered to “reduce the fisheye lens effect,” increasing the clarity of the sight. Further, the Axial Arms 3x, Royal & Kross 4x, and SUSAT Multizoom have received reworks to improve their clarity and make them just as competitive as the Modern Warfare ones.

Popular Call of Duty content creator JGOD showed off the reworked optics over on Twitter, presenting the “huge difference after the update.”
