Call of Duty: Black Ops IIEdit
- "Nightvision scope with interlaced thermal overlay."
- — Create-A-Class description.
The Dual Band Scope acts in a similar manner to the Thermal Scope of previous games, albeit highlighting enemies in yellow rather than the usual bright white from previous games, with a green background. Players with the Cold-Blooded perk will not glow yellow when looked at through the Dual Band Scope. The Dual Band Scope is available for light machine guns, sniper rifles, and the Crossbow. It reduces centerspeed by 10%. It can be combined with the Variable Zoom Scope and Ballistics CPU.
The main point in which the Dual Band Scope is favored much more than Thermal Scope in previous installments is because of its night vision feature. It does not obscure the view as much as its thermal counterpart which blinds environmental structures even at small distances. For that reason, the Dual Band Scope is treated as an alternative to the Target Finder, especially on light machine guns. The Dual Band Scope gives the ability to see enemies through smoke, although with small view obstruction and reduced versatility when compared to the Target Finder.
Call of Duty: Modern WarfareEdit
- "Advanced 3.25x Gen 3 night vision with thermal overlay for enhanced situational awareness. Not compatible with Night Vision Goggles."
- — Description
The Dual Band Scope returns in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare as the Solozero NVG Enhanced. It is available to all SMGs, Shotguns, Assault Rifles, Light Machine Guns and Marksman Rifles. It functions similarly to its depiction in Black Ops 2, however, all heat sources, including Thermites, Molotovs, Killstreaks, and gunfire, will now show up in bright yellow or red as well.
Black Ops IIEdit
- In the campaign, players can seldom find a weapon with a Dual Band Scope and Laser Sight despite the fact that this combination is impossible when customizing the loadout.
- Unlike the Thermal Scope or IR Scope on sniper rifles, the attachment does not remove the standard scope. It is, however, added behind it.
