The Canted sight is a sight type attachment in BATTLEGROUNDS.


The canted sight can be attached to most, if not all weapons that have an upper rail to attach sights to, serving as a backup sight in close to mid range combat for weapons with telescopic sights already attached to them. When aiming down canted sights, the entire weapon will be rotated 45° counter-clockwise, although shooting mechanics remain the same.
