Hip Shot Dot Red Dot Sight
Easy to use+very well put together! Great for FPS
This product is great! I only wish I had been first to think of this. I've seen where people say the same effect can be had with an orange sticker... Well, in a dark room the orange sticker doesn't work. I play regularly on a projector and had to modify this a bit (magnets in the suction cup), but it works awesome... Simple to set up and very good high-quality design. The wire is barely visible and ends up blending in quickly while playing. It has helped my game, especially when running and gunning, and when playing FPS with a shotgun. I like that I can spend my "earned points or in-game currency" on other upgrades rather than a reticle scope upgrade because I have a permanent red dot. Also, no worrys about EMPs or when I am playing hardcore matches because IT'S ALWAYS THERE!!!. I have also used this with Thief, TitanFall and other non-FPS games. It also has the benefit for me that I can use it on my Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS4, Wii and computer system. That's a lot of value across multiple platforms.
Not worth the $30 price tag
This a fairly frivolous and minimally helpful accessory. It does grant a slight benefit by helping you see where your cross-hair/reticle will be when you scope-in or look down the iron-sights. It may be even more helpful for Hardcore type game modes with limited/no HUD or reticle. However, the suction cups are hard to get applied properly (they fall off constantly), the wire is distracting, and you can achieve the same result with a bit of bright orange sticker instead of a $30 usb device.
Perfect for older gamers
I have been gaming since the PC was the only online gaming choice. This product is perfect for the older gamers, who like me, have failing eye sight. GoFor a screen size smaller than 42" it may cause some issues. Overall the item works great and does not influence the out come of the game anymore than using a custom controller that is allowed in MLG play.
BIGGER is better
You need a 45" screen, at least. Anything smaller than that and the LED will be larger than the players your shooting at...and this won't really help if you aren't good at scoping.
This product does exactly what it's supposed to. I've used it for BF4 and Black Ops 2. No issues at all with it falling off, and you hardly notice the wire once you get going in the match. I love it, and I'm glad I bought it. It won't get you 50 more kills, but helps when people roll up on you out of no where and you don't have time to aim.
Rant about reviews.
Good product for people who aim down sight on the run lets you know where iron sight will be saving you a sight perk. But in no way does it affect your hip fire spread. I'm tired of seeing reviews with people running around doing hip fire. This item is meant for run and gun with QuickDraw or quickscoping. Hip fire is random within the large reticle stop using it as such. I'm glad this item wasn't named bridge jumper.
I almost did not purchase the Hip Shot Dot because of bad reviews!!! I am a 3 hour a day First Person Shooter gamer, and though this was a great idea. For $20 there is nothing that compares. A lot of the bad reviews were because of the cord running down the middle of screen. I have found that it helps me line up the enemy if they are below my red dot! HIGHLY RECCOMEND TO ANYONE!!!!!! NEED 47+ INCH TV THOUGH. I THINK ANYTHING SMALLER MAYBE HARD USE BECAUSE OF THE DOT BEING BIGGER THAN WHAT YOU ARE SHOOTING AT.
looks good the led is vary bright. only part i don't like is it would have been better if they used see through wire from the led to the wire the wire going down the tv screen would be less noticeable that way.
It improved my game. shots are way more on point now and reaction time is faster.
Waste of money
This product is clearly for people who can't aim correctly in FPS games and is not worht the price tag
falls off and does not make anything more accurate placebo effect. that is all. so in the end you buy a sucktion cup with a little red LED that does nothing but distract you from the game
