Testing the laser sight on my Nyx today I figured that the cof reduction was about 30%. This makes it much more viable for hipfiring at short range. I have been able to properly run and gun with this thing without having to ADS. Thorbinator's data analysis indicates that these 3 scout rifles are identical in properties and function. So this would mean that the SOAS-20 and Stalker would gain the same advantage from the laser sight. The laser sight on this has made it my primary weapon of choice as an actual infiltrator, not a sniper. I can now 3 body shot just about anyone at point blank to short range and use the reflex for medium ranges. The carbine variant of the scout rifles has almost exactly the same base hip COF. In my opinion it outclasses every other weapon in short and medium range, even the carbine variant. Here is a comparison of default to laser sight: This image gives the approximate range at which the laser hipfire cone will reliably hit someone in the chest. The red X indicates where I was standing when taking the first picture. I estimate this distance at about 3.5m.
