I'm not sure if this is a mod or a built in feature, but how do I tag enemies like this this image:

And here is another image without being zoomed in on the scope:

This is the "track targets" effect that is described on the Recon Scope weapon mods, under the "Sights" modifications of weapons. By targeting the enemy through the recon scope, the red diamond will appear above them.

As pointed out by Yorik, the Recon Sensor modification for power armor helmets will have the same effect and mark enemies when aiming down the sights of any gun. More information, including materials needed for this mod, can be seen here.

The diamond seems to persist above the enemy until it is killed, meaning you can track the enemies with the recon scope gun and switch to another.

    note that there is also a power armor helmet mod that will do this for any weapon in iron sights (called "Recon Sensors")

  • @Yorik Yes, there absolutely is... I don't use Power Armor enough to ever remember that one... I'll add it to my answer. Thanks!
