A red dot sight is a common classification for a type of non-magnifying reflector (or reflex) sight for firearms, and other devices that require aiming, that gives the user an aimpoint in the form of an illuminated red dot. The most recognized brand of red dot sights is Aimpoint AB.
Insurgency: Sandstorm Edit
The red dot sight is set to return in Insurgency: Sandstorm as the 1x Red Dot. Unlike previous installments, it is based on the Aimpoint CompM4 rather than the CompM2.

In Insurgency, the Red Dot Sight is a reflex sight available to the Security faction. It is based off of the Aimpoint series of reflex sights. The Red Dot Sight can be attached to all Security primary weapons in regular play and can also be attached to Insurgent weapons in the CO-OP gamemode. When compared to the Holographic sight, the Red Dot Sight is more suited for mid-long range engagements, due to its smaller reticule and lower peripheral vision with the presence of a scope cover.
- The 2x Red Dot scope and Red Dot sight are nearly identical, with the only difference being a magnifier on the 2x Red Dot Scope.
- The Red Dot sight uses the same model as the 2x Red Dot scope in world view.
- The model of the red dot sight is based on the Aimpoint CompM2
