Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare & Modern Warfare Remastered
The Reflex Sight appears as an attachment exclusive to the campaign, either mounted on the G36C or M4A1. It is nearly identical to the Red Dot Sight in terms of zoom and accuracy, but has a different appearance.
The reflex sight appears in the level "Black Cats", where it appears as the Reflector Sight. It is mounted on the left and right M2 Browning Machine Guns. That is the only appearance it makes in the game.

The reflex sight can only be given using the console command "give g36c_reflex". It is available in the mission "Suspension" on the G36C, much like in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. However, visually there is no optic attached to the weapon, and when aiming down the sights, it's simply the iron sights.

The Reflex Sight is a non-magnifying "electronic sight" that uses focusing optics to show a reticle floating out in front of the weapon. It depicted as an old style "tube" Red Dot Sight with the name "ArmPoint Mark ll Red Dot" on the side. It features a customizable reticle like other Red Dot Sights in the game. The Reflex Sight is available on most assault rifles, submachine guns, and light machine guns, and can be considered the equivalent of the Holographic Sight from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.
The differences between the Reflex and other Red Dot Sights are purely aesthetic. Compared to other Red Dot sights, the Reflex Sight has a slightly larger optical window, allowing for better vision around the reticle. However, the tubed casing for this early Red Dot Sight is rather bulky compared to simple open Red Dot Sights, and thus isn't as commonly used as its counterparts.
Unlike with other optical attachments in Black Ops, the Reflex Sight always uses the same model of sight for every weapon it can be attached to. The Reflex Sight does not have alternative sight pictures for Soviet weapons, unlike the Red Dot Sight.
The Reflex Sight appears in Call of Duty: Black Ops II, and this time it replaces the Red Dot Sight from the previous games. On most weapons in 2025, it is identical to the Red Dot Sight in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. However, when equipped on handguns, the Reflex Sight appears smaller, similar in shape to the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Red Dot Sight. When applied to 1980s weapons in the campaign and Zombies, the Reflex Sight uses the Call of Duty: Black Ops Reflex Sight, with the exception of Soviet weapons, which takes on the appearance of their counterparts' Red Dot Sight instead (which looks similar to the reflex sight of the handguns from 2025).
The Reflex Sight returns in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. Uniquely, the Reflex Sight is unlocked by default for all weapon classes that can equip it. The DMR-1 Spectacle variant has an integral Reflex Sight equipped, making it the only Sniper Rifle that can equip it.
