The rules say : UAV not allowed.
So that means usage of the binos not allowed.
We dont ask to drop it :p
But a lot of teams just drop it anyway to make sure they cant get fked on that :p
if i recall correctly, I ve seen on streams people using binos to see through smoke while of course not actualy UAVing them
so yes the ruules are EXTREMELY confusing, and should be worded differently, all of our team and enemy team didnt know we are allowed to hold them and if we are allowed to right-click with them (and still am unsure about that)
so pretty sure it isnt our problem
