    Dear script modders,

    I'm trying to make a script that applies the scoped hunting rifle effect to the sniper rifle. I know this could be done using the weapon perk slot but I'm using this for something else.

    If the scoped hunting rifle perk is too complicated (as it has 2 effects: the bonus to effective range as well as the penality on short range accuracy) the 1 effect bonus from the long range weapon perk of

    Hit chance reduced for targets farther than 4*(Perception - 2) hexes, which means the drop off of effective range is halved.

    will also be of great use to me!

    I'm trying to diversify the sniper weapons and freeing up the perk slot would give me great freedom to do this. However, my scritping skills are very limited and I have not been able to figure this out.

    I have been told that this is actually quite complicated and I understand if this is beyond the scope of a quick script request. However, I thought I might give this a try and see if anyone has an idea.

    Many thanks!

    To make this request more straighforward. I'm essentially looking for any kind of script that can increase the Effective Range of a weapon. It does not have to mimic the weapon perks if this makes it needlessly complicated.
