How to Aim Down Sights in Prey
Arkane Studios’ Prey has finally released and players will be busy fighting their way through Talos I. You’ll have a ton of weapons at your disposal in Prey from melee weapons like the Wrench to ranged weapons like the Shotgun and Gloo Gun. Here’s how to aim down sights with ranged weapons.
When it comes to ranged weapons, the aiming reticle isn’t the greatest you’ve ever seen in a game. As such, actually hitting a fast-paced mimic or any enemy from a distance can be tricky. Fortunately, all you need to do is press R3 on your controller to aim down sights. Your ‘scope’ just zooms the aiming reticle in a little bit, but if you press forward and back on the d-pad, you can zoom in and out.
This makes landing headshots or long-range efforts much easier. To exit aim down sights in Prey, simply press R3 again and you’ll return to your normal view.
It’s worth noting that you can technically aim down sights with a melee weapon, but, considering you’ll be using these solely in close-quarters combat, it’s not something you need to worry about.
