Quickscoping... or lack there of?

For anyone who like this style of play, I've got some bad news for you... Quickscoping will not be as easy in Black Op's. In fact they may have taken it out all together. Here's a link to the reason why:

Quickscoping Discussion

Now personally I like to vary my play style and some of that does include sniping but I very rarely quickscope just because I play much better when I dont. On one hand I can see the enjoyment gained from it like pulling of the one in a million shot. But on the other hand, that shot is just one out of a million failed shots which dont do yourself or your team any favors.


That being said I still hope there is some way of being able to use a sniper while being mobile. If not then this game is going to be dominated by Assauilt Rifles and SMG's while leaving Snipers and more likely Shotguns to gather dust.

The arguement against removing quickscoping is that there is only a few sniper spots per map and the maps are more accomodating to run and gunners making sniping extremely difficult. Plus after the first month everyone will know where these spots are and where to look out for.

Right now I dunno what to think. Either way I dont think it makes much of a difference to me so what do you think? Are you mad about quickscoping being removed or are you throwing it a goodbye party? Let me know in the comments.

  2. I'm glad there will be less quickscoping to be honest, not a big fan of that in the previous COD's.

  6. damn campers.

    if you're using a sniper, you shouldn't be trying to use it while mobile anyway.

  7. I think if you've practiced it to the point where you can quickscope effectively, it balances things out. At the moment snipers are consistently bottom of the ladder.

  11. Snipers gonna snipe.

    Hope they nerf Assault Rifle accuracy and SMG damage.
    For christ sake, SMGs shoot pistol calibers, so they should inflict as much damage as those.
