"The M145 Machine Gun Optic is a variant of the C79. It combines ELCAN's legendary robustness and optical expertise with a ballistically calibrated and LED-illuminated reticle. " - In-game Description

The M145 is a more specific, upgraded version of the C79 scope. It is a Canadian-American 3.4x28 scope, designed for machine guns. It requires 185 kills or 265 credits (CR) (initially) to unlock it.


The M145 scope is a mid-range optic. Its reticle uses a crosshairs with distance markers. The reticle is sharp and can be used for a focused view on distant enemies. The field of view is quite clear for a medium range optic, which makes it useful to track enemies that are much closer (unlike the ACOG, whose tight optical structure fills most of the scope.)

Unlike the real life version, this scope doesn't light up in the dark, so it can become difficult to use the M145 at medium to long range in darker conditions. However, with the aid of lasers, the M145 becomes somewhat usable.

In summary, the M145 is practical for any range, and its crispness and clarity makes it easy to aim.


The M145 scope in some ways can be seen as a mini sniper scope due to its reticle containing crosshairs. It is best used at medium ranges but sees usability at close and long range. It makes a great all-round scope, which can be obtained for a low price.
