Magnification on gun sights

Was wondering what magnification I should set my guns on?

I understand about setting the scout magnification higher except under 4x to prevent glint,but what about what is a good setting for other class weapons and why?

    I prefer maximum possible zoom available. but it's a personal preference. if you are using any fov adjustments and you turn off fov when aiming you will notice a huge boost to ads zoom as well ;)

    Depents on your positioning. Are most of your shots medium to long range, than make sure your zoom is higher, are you all about close quarters like i am, turn the zoom down. I allways have minimal zoom on all weapons i use. Over distance i'm a bad shot anyway so i just spot people that are not in my prefered close range area and keep moving.

    Short to medium as the 3 classes except scout

    Definitely a trial and error personal preference thing to what suits your play style.
    I personally use 2x zoom on all weapons I can as I am always close to medium and like the consistency of the same zoom

    I found that the more zoom the more recoil so if it kicks like a mule then i drop it lower until its usable for me, most LMGs benefit greatly from the secondary AA ironsight and found the radium sight great for most scouts mainly the new Vetterli-Vitali

    I would drop them as low as possible (for any non-sniper rifle), lets u see more of the environment and makes it easier to track in cqb. as long as you have decent aim u shouldn't really struggle at long range as long range engagements are ways slower than cqb ones by design.
    personally I use 1.25 on almost everything (to keep it the same for guns with sights and ones without). the exception being a few which I use 1.0...

    shotguns/smg/pistol 1.25x close range guns
    medic guns/lmg 2.00x mid guns

    I find 1.5X across the board a reasonable compromise in most circumstances but as others have said, it really is personal preference.

    I set all mine at 1x whenever possible. Less noticeable recoil. But more importantly, there is no change in perspective when going from hip to ADS. I prefer that so that I can reliably stay on target as I switch.

    I prefer to have the max on most of my weapons besides my sidearms

    I like to have the extra zoom for better clarity down range. I have spotted numerous enemies in rocks, peeking from the corner of windows, looking over the top of a distant rock this way.

    I use about 1.25 or 1.50 on all my weapons that allow it, i.e. non-marksman variants.

    The only exception is some hipfire smg's, where I put the zoom on max - on those I don't usually fire using ADS, but instead I use the extra zoom as a sort of mini binoculars to check out terrain before rushing in.
