The Optic Scanner, or Optical Scanner, is a piece of equipment featured in Call of Duty: Ghosts. It is absent from Multiplayer.
It is used in the level "Federation Day", where it is used to locate and identify Victor Ramos. The Optic Scanner is able to zoom in, and when targeted at a person's face, the player can hold the trigger button to scan for facial recognition. It has a compass on the top of the HUD, and a bar on the left which signifies the range it is zoomed in to.
The Optical Scanner appears on the Laser Drill on the map Awakening, where the Optical Scanner uses Samantha Cross' software to decipher the hieroglyphics on the Obelisks around the map. Apart from being aesthetically different, it serves little extra functional purpose compared to the Laser Drill from before.
