Sniper Mode

The device has a full sensor array in the scope which can lock onto an object and calculate the most optimal fire time. When the trigger is depressed the weapon measures all variables including the targets movement, range, wind conditions, humidity, and ambient heat. It then provides the shooter with a visual signal of precisely wear to line the weapon up. Once the weapon is within a certain tolerance of the locking parameters it auto-fires a single shot.
