Tier One Weapons

Tier 1 Weapons - A mod by Fingolfin

This mod adds several weapons used by US SOCOM units in different setups and color variants. It is based on the RHS framework and should work fine with ACE.

• SIS Sauer MCX Virtus with 11.5 inch barrels in different color variants (5.56mm and .300 Blackout)
• SR16s with 11.5 and 14.5inch barrels, URX4 rails, various stocks in different color variants
• HK416s with 10.4 and 14.5inch barrels, Geissele, Remington and Midwest rails, various stocks in different color variants
• Mk46s & 48s in different color variants
• M110k1s and M110k5s
• Glock 19, Glock 22 & SIG Sauer P320 handguns

• Vortex Razor HD Gen II and Gen III
• Leupold M3A
• ShortDot 1-8x24 PM II CC
• Nightforce 1-8x ATACR
• Elcan SpecterDR 1.5x/6x
• Eotech 551 and 553
• EXPS3-0
• Micro T-1 & T-2
• SIG Sauer Romeo4T
• 3X magnifier
• G33 magnifier
• L3 magnifier
• all in various color variants

• LA5B and NGAL
• Surefire M300C, M600V and M603V
• KAC, Daniel Defense, Larue, and gangster grips
• Gemtech Halo, Rotex-IIIC, Surefire SOCOM 1 & 2, KAC 7.62 QDC/CRS, KAC 5.56 QDC & QDC/CQB, AAC M4-2000 and Dead Air Sandman-S suppressors

• highly detailed models and textures (mostly)
• a wide variety of weapon accessories and scopes
• ACE compatibility (not fully tested, please report all bugs you encounter)
• optional BettIR config in the optional folder of the download or here:

• small fix for the A3Launcher, no new content
• new overlay textures for the Elcan SpecterDR 1.5x/6x 2D versions
• enhanced RHS compatibility
• Leupold M3A initial zeroing set to 100m
• slightly reworked reticle textures for the Eotechs
• small config improvements
• new optic mode for the LPVOs: CQB mode; better field of view, but MRAD markings are not displayed correctly. Use Next Optic Mode (default Ctrl + NumPad /)
• new Elcan SpecterDR 1.5x/6x versions with ARD and Docter III attachments
• fixed Elcan SpecterDR 1.5x/6x reticle
• standalone EXPS3-0s, Aimpoint Micros and Romeo4Ts were moved a bit forward
• magnified Romeo4Ts can now change reticles (Previous Optic Mode, by default Shift + NumPad /)
• Elcan SpecterDR 1.5x/6x 2D version converted to CBA scope
• improved NGAL textures (thanks to Eagle)
• Magnifier combos on Larue risers were moved a bit forward to avoid clipping with backup sights on some weapons
• fixed VMR-2 reticle was on the first focal plane
• improved reticles on low magnification for the ATACR-18 and Razor Gen III
• added tracers to the 7.62mm belts (every fifth round, same as in the RHS mags)
• changed the reload animation for the 14.5 rifles to Toadie's long barrel animation
• added BCM Gunfighter Vertical Grip Mod3 MLOK
• config improvements for the CBA scopes
• mid/long range scopes now have the correct mil dot dimensions (compatible with ACE ballistics)
• fixed: some attachments were not moving with the recoil animations on handguns
• M300C and M600V standalone attachments available on more weapons
• improved (I think) mid/long range scopes (better field of view)
• improved rvmats on the URX4 and SMR rails.
• fixed: attachments not showing on some SR-16s
• added M300C and M600V standalone attachments
• added M110k5s with ACS stocks
• added black SIG Sauer MCX Virtus variant
• added PIP scopes for mid/long range scopes (check your CBA settings)
• small model changes to make the SR-16s more accurate
• changed the EXPS3-2s to EXPS3-0s since only the latter are used in SOCOM units
• fixed missing muzzle flip on the handguns
• added SIG Sauer MCX Virtus
• added SIG Sauer Romeo4T
• added SIG Sauer SRD762
• many scopes now use the CBA scripted reticle functions (smooth zoom, illuminated reticles - check the CBA options for key-binds)
• fixed loud Mk48 sounds
(See readme file for the changelog of earlier versions.)

Known issues
• The magazines sit too low on the SR-16. This is to avoid clipping with the bolt.
• Only the light cone is showing on the SAW laser/light combos, not the light point. No idea how to fix that...
• The position of the SAWs does not fit the hand/animations. Been that way since the last RHS update and will be fixed in the next version.
• The CBA scopes do not work well with 32/9 screen ratios. You can use the additional config:
Please report all bug you find.

Future plans
• To be announced...

Is there a fix for making the eotech sight reticles more high-def? More like vanilla?
Pet Mudstone Nov 12 @ 11:28pm 
For anyone that uses ACE Arsenal Extended, or is simply interested in making the weapon categories compact, I have made a patch for ACEAX and Tier One Weapons .
Legend OF the Donut Nov 8 @ 7:29am 
Hey howdy, Is there anyway you can make a separate version that only has the 7.62×51mm NATO 250 round linked belts for the RHS 240 MGs I loved having that when my unit had this mod, but it's too big to justify for just one magazine type.
Spud Nov 7 @ 10:46pm 
seriously why are the lights so dark they should be way brighter based on what you have added
Blackbird Ater Nov 7 @ 4:05pm 
Did I do something wrong, or are the flashlights in Tier One extremely dark? Whether I use the 300V, 600V or the 603V, the flashlight doesn't light up anything compared to even the base-game flashlight.

Would love to see compatibility with the new ACE laser features. Hands down one of, if not the, best weapons mods on the workshop.
