In Apex Legends there are a variety of different scopes you can pick up and attach to different weapons. They offering differing zoom levels and reticles, and some can highlight enemy players. A good scope can definitely make it easier to see and point at distance targets. However, even with a big scope attached, I still have a hard time landing shots on distant enemies.
This had me wondering whether scopes have any effect on the trajectory of your weapon's fire, or if they were only a visual tool to help the human player aim the shots. Do crosshairs have any effect on bloom, recoil, or other mechanical factors that make it harder to land shots at a distance, even if you get your crosshair pointed at the right spot?
