"ACOG with reflex optic on top. Press left shift/LS/L3 while aiming down the sight to switch between optics."
Create-A-Class description.

The Hybrid Optic is an optical attachment available in Call of Duty: Black Ops II for assault rifles and light machine guns. It is the counterpart of the HAMR Scope from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, but unlike this one, the player can quickly switch back and forth between either of the two optics by tapping the sprint button while aiming down sights. However, there is no way of switching between the optics while unsighted, nor is there a way of telling which one is active without aiming to check. The reticles can be customized, using the same ones as the Reflex Sight and the ACOG Scope.

The Hybrid Optic cannot be used in conjunction with the Grenade Launcher nor the Select Fire attachment, despite not using the same control for the first equipment item like its Modern Warfare 3 counterpart used to.

Strangely, when switching rapidly between optical attachments, the into fire rate of the AN-94 and the HAMR are reset, and the SWAT-556 and the M8A1 restart their respective burst, ignoring the burst delay if it hasn't initiated.


For custom reticle images, see Hybrid Optic/Reticles.


  • In campaign mode, when using the Hybrid Optic's higher zoom level on the FAL OSW, the SWAT-556 and the SCAR-H, these weapons are referred to as "FAL-OSW", "SIG556" and "SCAR" in the HUD, respectively.
