The Reticle and Lens Customization is a modification the player can apply to their gun in Call of Duty: Black Ops, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, Call of Duty: Black Ops IICall of Duty: Ghosts, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, and Call of Duty: Black Ops III, meaning the player can modify the lens and reticles of Red Dot and Reflex sights. This is unavailable on the Wii versions most likely due to time restrictions with the Wii team or the lack of RAM.

Call of Duty: Black OpsEdit

In Call of Duty: Black Ops a new reticle costs CoD Points logo BO500, changing the reticle or lens colour costs CoD Points logo BO250.

Custom Sights

When certain guns are put into the Pack-A-Punch machine in Call of Duty: Black Ops, they gain a special Red Dot Sight with a random reticle. These custom reticles are very different from the ones available in Create-A-Class 2.0.

Compatible WeaponsEdit

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3Edit

Reticle Customization returns in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, but players will only be able to change the shape of the reticle, and reticles are unlocked with weapon level. Players can change the reticle of Red Dot Sights, Holographic Sights, and ACOG Scopes. Unlike in Call of Duty: Black Ops, reticle Customization is available on the Wii.

Red Dot SightEdit

ACOG SightEdit

Holographic SightEdit

VMR SightEdit


Call of Duty: Black OpsEdit

  • One of the custom Nazi Zombies reticles is actually a Japanese character. It is マ, which is Katakana for 'ma.' Another is the Illuminati symbol, which is also seen elsewhere in Call of Duty: Black Ops zombie mode.
  • Despite not getting a custom sight, due to it already having a scope, the AUG's Swarovski Scope receives a yellow lens when Pack-a-Punched.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3Edit

Call of Duty: Black Ops IIEdit

  • The Predator reticle for the Reflex Sight is a direct reference to the Predator films, the three dots being identical to the laser that the Predators utilize for aiming. 
  • The default ACOG reticle resembles the Delta reticle seen in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.

Call of Duty: Ghosts Edit

  • The Precision, Vertex, Blue Dot, Precision Dot, and Delta reticles are all unlockable for the Red Dot Sight, ACOG Scope, Holographic Sight, and VMR Sight.
    • Each of the four mentioned sight attachments have five reticles that are unique from one another.
  • The Predator reticle also appears for the VMR sight, but in a hot pink color.
