Insurgency Wiki

A laser sight projects a laser from the barrel of the user's weapon.


The Laser Sight is a siderail attachment designed to provide users a guiding laser when firing from the hip, as hip-firing weapons in Insurgency is more difficult due to free-aim mechanics. It can be turned off using the toggle flashlight/lasersight button (G by default)

It is recommened to pay extra attention to where your laser is pointed; and when attempting to spot targets from afar, to turn off the lasersight (and flashlight) to prevent the enemy from spotting you.


  • Allows for more accurate hipfire.
  • Provides user a second point of reference when aiming down sights.

  • Reveals position to enemy if directly aimed and when pointed at a wall, especially on night maps.
