A holographic weapon sight or holographic diffraction sight is a non-magnifying gun sight that allows the user to look through a glass optical window and see a 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. Holographic sight are mostly manufactured by EOTech.

"Holographic reticle allowing for easier target acquisition and peripheral view"
— In-game description
In Insurgency, the Holographic Sight is the reflex sight available to the Security faction. It is based off of the EOtech series of holographic sights. The holographic sight can be attached to all Security primary weapons in regular play and onto Insurgent weapons in CO-OP. When compared to the Red Dot, the Holographic Sight is more suited for CQB fighting as its casing has less view obstruction.  

Performance Edit

  • Large reticle allows for quick target acquisition
  • Short aim time
  • Low supply point cost
  • Blocks off less peripheral vision than the RDS.
  • Does not increase ADS time

  • Size of sight obscures peripheral vision
  • Large reticle makes the gun less suitable for long distance combat.
  • Default holographic reticle tends to flare up more with night vision on.

Trivia Edit

  • The Holographic sight used to be mounted closer to the muzzle on the M16A4 and Mk18
  • The holographic sight is based on the EOTech 552 variant.
