Replaces the simple zoom for weapons without scopes with full iron sights. It doesn't simply use an image, the front and back sight actually line up in the center of the screen over the crosshair. There is a new option to remove the crosshair.

Hello fellow gamers!

At long last, the Iron Sights Mod is released! Yes, I know this should have happened months ago, but it's better now than never. The main changes from alpha 1.1 (yes, I completely skipped beta) are mostly for stability. I haven't encountered any errors, crashes, or annoyances in this most recent iteration, and that shouldn't be a unique experience. I also tweaked the recoil animations and put the videos back into operation.


The full list of features is as follows:

  • Fully functional iron sights for the M4, Falcon, Jackhammer, MP5, and M249.
  • Faster transitions in and out of iron sights.
  • Higher mouse sensitivity while zoomed.
  • New recoil animations when zoomed.
  • A red dot sight for the P90.
  • Smooth transitions in and out of all scopes.
  • Menu options to disable iron sights or crosshairs.

The final release of the Iron Sights Mod. It includes all of the most recent features and fixes and should be glitch free.

The next iteration. A number of new features have been added, some smaller, some larger. (But it's OLD now!)

(SO OLD!) The first playable version of the mod. It should be stable and free of any major glitches, but not every feature is implemented or perfected...

Man, that really sucks this awesome mod does not work with the 64 bit version of the game. What the hell! Now there is no definitive way to play this game the absolute best that it could possibly be. There MUST be some way to make this mod work with the 64 bit version! I need my iron sights!

If anyone was wondering this does NOT work with the 64 bit patch. I just tried it.

It's because the SDK for the 64 bit version of the game was never released but it is possible to install the 32 bit version of Far Cry (patched to 1.4 or even with the unofficial 1.42) and install this mod without any problem.

I totally disagree. This is a "must have" modification for Far Cry! I will never play it again without it.
