I noticed the option to craft Recon Scopes for certain weapons which requires a higher level of Gun Nut than I currently have. The description mentiones "tracks targets" as one benefit of the mod, what exactly does this do?

  • was wondering also. Side note: when searching I noted that people experience a glitch where the shader effect does not go away even after unequipping it. There is a console command to rectify that. – Yorik Nov 12 '15 at 19:00

It means that when you target an enemy through that scope it will paint the target (draw a diamond above its head) letting you track it.

track targets

    Useful note: Once painted, the diamond sticks on the target even when you switch out of the scope or change weapons. I haven't tested with fast-travel or just running far away and coming back, but it seems the only thing that normally clears it is killing the enemy. – Iszi Dec 9 '15 at 21:58
