    I really hope that they heavily nerfed the sniper rifles.

    • HenryDF

      They’re behaving as sniper rifles always have in Ghosts…

      • MSTAR020

        I want them to be like Shotguns, absolutely useless at close range but really good at long range. Then they would be balanced. Shotguns have a one hit kill up to a certain range and then they are useless. Snipers would be so nice if they were the exact opposite.

        • HenryDF

          Compared to the BO2 snipers, I think these are less versatile, but they’re still lethal at close range. It’s the same as sniper rifles always have been. The ADS speed thing sounds promised in deterring quickscoping though πŸ™‚

        • 3rdWorldMafia

          That’s a thing in real life. Bullets don’t accelerate to their maximum velocity instantly, they take time. IW could make some formula where bullets are only chest up [Or neck/head or whatever] 1 hit KOs until ____ distance at which point they do their true damage before dropping off in some cases

          • GravityDude

            You idiot. Bullets are at their maximum velocity when the leave the barrel. Unless they have tiny little jet packs on them.

          • Chris Mason

            You have just failed Firearms 101. The fastest a bullet travels is right as it exits the barrel.

            Anything else you have to say is invalid and wrong. Forever.

          • jasy

            You need to research before making an idiotic comment.

          • Sniper

            its the exact opposite, take a physics class boy.

          • 3rdWorldMafia

            You’re an idiot. Bullets take time to accelerate, before peaking and decelerating. Do you think a bullet goes from 0 to 1000 [Or whatever the bullet velocity of that particular gun is] instantly? No, it does not.

          • Sniper

            Let’s start over. The action begins in the barrel, where it reaches it’s peak and as soon as it exits the muzzle, it begins to decelerate because it is meeting air resistance and the force of gravity. If you look at the physics equations, I’m right.

          • Sniper

            the bullet has maximum velocity as soon as it leaves the barrel. As it comes out of the muzzle, the speed of the bullet decreases as it meets air resistance and gravity forces. take a physics class. equations like vf = vi + at and vf2 = vi2+2ad (where vf means final velocity, vi means initial velocity, a means speed or, rate of acceleration, t means time, and d means distance) prove that I am right. follow this link if you dont believe me:

            http://forums.bistudio.com/showthread.php?78242-When-does-a-bullet-reach-its-top-speed

            i think you mean the damage takes some time to increase, as certain grenade and rocket launchers take time to reach their maximum damage range, and are timed. however, as proof to CoD, damage is at its max at close range as soon as the bullet leaves the barrel, which incidentally, is also when the bullet is at its terminal velocity.

          • It does this inside the barrel. Now get your dumbass off this website and research it.

          • 3rdWorldMafia

            I have researched it already. You haven’t researched it, you hypocrite. Pistol rounds can take around 13 feet to reach their maximum velocity. Their maximum penetration and damage is at that range. Get a brain.

        • Crazy billet

          If that is done for snipers then all gun should take 20 shots to kill. It would render snipers who run into people around corners useless.

          • MSTAR020

            Exactly the point of doing so. If I have an SMG and aim down sights at exactly the same time as a quickscoper and we both have perfect accuracy, I lose the gun fight 100% of the time. A long range weapon vs. close range weapon in CQC should never win.

          • Joeldagod

            we have pistols for running around corners or use overkill,snipe for when you want to defend a point or get in a good position

    • InFamous ELiT3

      why? If you keep moving they cant hit you. plus they removed QS so, they got to give snipers some perk.

      • jordanxbrookes

        You’re right, maybe if Treyarch make the next game they’ll bring back the Scout perk.

      • Trizay

        If you still think that they actually removed quickscoping then you are sadly mistaken. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lbxEjBC8iBE

        • jordanxbrookes

          They didn’t say they removed it, they said it wasn’t a viable option as before.

          • Trizay

            Did you even watch the video?

          • jordanxbrookes

            I don’t need to watch a video if I already know what IW said.

          • Trizay

            Well what you think IW said is actually wrong. Maybe you should watch the video instead of ASSuming and talking about things as if you know what your talking about when you really don’t.

        • InFamous ELiT3

          I can hit the enemy with the first shot using any gun, that includes sniper rifles. Thats not with aim assist, thats just aiming at your target and shooting.

          • MSTAR020

            Dude how idiotic can you be? Just fuckin die already.

          • InFamous ELiT3

            How old are you, I imagine your somewhere between 13-18, If that. I know you, you like to rage because you cant use any gun on the game, especially the sniper. If the sniper is so OP, how about you use a sniper to level the playing field, but you can’t, can you? Oh, and your probably dead already.

          • Articular Rivers

            You’re fucking retarded. smh

      • MSTAR020

        You must be a Christmas Noob.

        • InFamous ELiT3

          1st, You must understand the mechanics of the game. Again, I said they have removed the hipfire aim assist, that existed in previous CODs. This eliminated QS spamming, by unskilled snipers. If someone QSs you now, its from pure skill, and you cant hate on skill. (Why dont you show me a clip of you QS, & then i’ll believe its still in the game)

    • Devin Wolfe

      I really hope people like you quit bitching but no it seems to be the norm now a days.

  • poo hole

    So, what is heavy duty mode?

  • Do you get retropoints for characters you already have in level 5?

  • TheShadowReaper

    about time. they talked about and promoted the “quiscoping isnt viable anymore and if it is, its quite different than before” shit but it was high time they made it really hard to be done. if it can be done anymore. qsing has ruined 3 titles in a row for me, about time something was done about it.

    • HenryDF

      I agree – the ADS time thing should help sort it. I thought there was something they said before launch about the actual center of the gun being a few cms off target when you scoped in, to stop accurate quickscoping. Not sure if that’s going to be included/has been and I haven’t noticed πŸ˜‰

      • TheShadowReaper

        yeah, you mean the center speed of the gun. the time that it takes for the gun to come back into “halt” position while ads. didnt knew that they nurfed that. good choice but it was obvious it just wasnt enough. the slower ads will do the trick this time.

        well you know while IW isnt my cup of tea when it comes to game developers they at least try. i’ll credit them as much. good job on Ghosts until now, if they keep listening and patching the game it can even becomes someone’s favorite out of the whole franchise. definitely a step forward from MW3 but they still need to improve a lot to impress me and the rest bunch that are followers of Treyarch.

      • 3rdWorldMafia

        I remember in some game or other, they made snipers take like 3 seconds to draw. Still, IW could take a page from TF2. I have never seen a quickscope on that, so they’re doing something right.

        • AMachin5

          Jarate for the first DLC weapon πŸ™‚

    • Fires

      Agreed, even though sniping is fun( hard scope, quickscope, everything between) it is ridiculous how you drop people who run into you with shotguns

      • TheShadowReaper

        sniping is a lot of fun. i remember myself being a sniper on COD4 before all these 360 no scopes shit and such were cool or whatever. i was enjoying the game a lot. now i have to run into a ballerina soldier who’s carrying a sniper trying to no scope me. its just stupid to watch and just disappointing to die from.

    • simonSays

      whats always made me laugh is players thinking its the COD Skill, like how many times have you heard ‘One vs One, quickscoping’ like its even a talent to be proud of!

      • Devin Wolfe

        Spratt and Pamaj seem to take pride in it.

  • iwannafmydad

    is this patch live?? i didn’t get any update

    • Mitch

      It’s not a patch, it’s automatically downloaded in-game when you start it up, you won’t notice anything except the version number in MP changing.

  • SoulTaker

    They are doing a good job so far with Ghosts in my opinion. They are at least trying to fix the stuff people are complaining about (spawns,snipers,etc) I’ enjoying it so far.

    Just plain BOOOOORRRIING

      Fantastic comment.

  • Can’t believe that half (maybe three quarters) of the the sniping community call themselves snipers when all the do is quickscope or noscope,
    Just because you are using a sniper doesn’t make you one!

    • jordanxbrookes

      It pisses me off when quickscopers say that they’re snipers.

        I would love to see all of the “pro snipers” try to snipe in Team Fortress 2

        • poizon

          why are you comparing 2 completely different games?

      • Devin Wolfe

        I’v used a sniper in COD for years so when I quickscope you it’s not BS its skill that has been acquired over years of playing.

        • Sniper

          EXACTLY

        • skill and luck are two different things mate.

          • Devin Wolfe

            When you’ve done it since MW2 its skill.

      • yeah, what part of sniping involves running round corners or jumping of ledges, turning round, pulling the scope up for a millisecond then firing?

    • K.E.M

      How does it not make us one? huh? Can you back your sh!t up?

  • Rated-R619

    Make the USR as the L115 and the sniper problem will be resolved…

    • John Blue

      I tried USR for one match and almost puked… Then I tried the L115 and now I don’t feel like trying the 2 remaining snipers at all.
      Then again, I’m not a quickscoper, so I don’t know how that is for them…

      • Maccabeus Jamal Whitaker

        Really? I had almost the opposite. But then again I’ve always been a fan of the quicker handling bolt actions. I’m just thankful there’s no marshmallow shooting Ballista clones in Ghosts, I DESPISE that gun.

  • Goten

    I honestly can’t wait for the day when it becomes impossible to Q’scope. Q’scoping has ruined the last few CoDs for me. Personally, Black Ops 1 had the perfect sniping mechanics.

    • Edwin Cortez

      Blops 1 snipers were the best snipers in COD history…

      • Jon Cameron

        If you’re excluding CoD 1 through 5, then sure.

      • Andrey Martim

        I used to raise some hell in Hazard with that PSG-1…

    • K.E.M

      Oh yeah,how has Quickscoping ruined CoD for you? please explain to me.

      • Trizay

        Have you been living under a rock the pst few COD games?

        • K.E.M

          maybe. But this is not a valid answer I was looking for,unless your one of those noobs who follows the crowd.

          • alteredizzy1010

            quick scoping takes almost 0 skill and is something anyone can do and people think its a amazing mlg thing when its not it a way to get more kills with a one or two shot class of guns and act all cool

          • Ciaran

            Ok I admit it now, I quick scope so my opinion may be a little biased but honostly I believe that quick scoping isn’t an easy way to get kills :L I don’t have some amazing k/d ratio but it feels a lot more fun cause it’s just an extra sort of challenge :L we can give out about lots πŸ™‚ if I could I would beg them to fix the honey badger and vector before the snipers :L and maybe the iar but yah I don’t wanna give out but just say it’s not that easy :L

          • Branden

            What? Quicks oping takes WAY more skill than running around with a machine gun or sitting in the back hard scoping.

      • TheShadowReaper

        if you didnt played the last COD games then why do you even comment? go play some other game. maybe some BF or CS. its clear that you are clueless about the last COD game so plz, honestly and with as much less offese as possible, fuck off sir.

      • Jasy

        Plz Fuck off

        • K.E.M

          How come? Because i’m a sniper who’s just looking to why little girls like you hate snipers

      • jordanxbrookes

        Are you drunk?

        • K.E.M

          More or less. But this is not the answer I was looking for

      • Quickscoping ruined the game for them because of two things. A) They can’t do it and keep up with others. B) They haven’t learned that good aim and constant fast movement easily counters it.

    • Superskeetman

      Have you tried drop shooting snipers this usually will make them miss. Also a true sniper could aim down sights just a quick as an iron sighted AR/SMG. And to all those that say quick scoping isn’t realistic I put this to you, a real sniper could probably hit you 9/10 50 yards away from the hip at least. Have you seen fps Russia hit a 360 jump shot out of a truck from approx 70 yards away if not youtube it. All this being said I don’t use snipers because the R5 is beast, combined with the MSBS nerf. Also BO 1 quick scoping was pretty OP once you got used to it more so than ghost imo. The increase flinch is a good thing because before it, snipers were locked on target regardless of feeding them bullets. If ghost patches like BO2 did then it will end up as BO2 where all guns feel the same with different skins.

      • SimonSays

        Completely inaccurate comment, do some research.

        • K.E.M

          Did you do YOUR research?

    • Baldmanz_RAGE

      Finally someone else agrees with what I have been saying all along. BO1 had it 100% right. That is why I was shocked when they put it in BO2. That was the single thing that made me walk away from BO2 early. I do have to say that even before this adjustment to the snipers in ghosts I have not had a problem with them in the game. But I am glad they are making these adjustments. I won’t notice while using because I never could QS anyway. Props IW!!!

      • alteredizzy1010

        cod 4 got it right

    • Batman

      Bo1 was a perfect game, it had good and super fun snipers

  • Edwin Cortez

    Snipers should have LMG mobility… Sniper rifles are heavy weapons made for stationary firing, but in COD they seem lightweight. Lets hope the nerf works.

    • MSTAR020

      LMG mobility with slow ADS and slow recovery time after sprinting would be perfect. It would make people hardscope, which I would rather be killed that way than quickscoped.

      • Emre

        i am using the vks and i never scope in and out and i sit in good places where i can snipe them.

      • Devin Wolfe

        Quickscope people bitch hardscope in a corner people bitch so how can you win.

      • snipe, not hardscope

    • LORDFIST111

      Honestly it depends on the Rifle. Some snipers are designed to have the mobility like an assault rifle irl. Thats not just an in game thing. The bigger ones tho yeah they need to be weighed down like they are in real life. like you dont see someone running with a .50 cal faster than someone running with an AR. Oh and another thing that should be put into consideration is how long it really takes to ADS in real life as well and in game it seems soo fast even without the perk. Thats kinda one major thing that bugs me about the smgs its too fast. So a perfect fix would be to have the LMG mobility on the Rifles that are the heavy ones like the Lynx but the rest are all small rifles and they really shouldnt have the same mobility because of how small they are. The VKS could have maybe less because of its Bullpup design and then the L115 could have more mobility of the VKS but less than the Remington R700 USR model because the USR only weighs about 9lbs. But for the aim time it should definitely take longer than it does in game and all sniper rifles should have the same aim time.

    • Alex | FamousIsLIVE

      Agreed. Don’t know why they want to keep snipers fast paced.

      • Devin Wolfe

        Because the game is fast paced.

        • How can a game be fast paced, what happens in the game is fast and A sniper should stay stationary at the back of the map or in a building giving covering fire (very slow if you ask me)

          • Devin Wolfe

            “Fast paced arcade shooter” not going to happen.

  • InFamous ELiT3

    Plus if the sniper rifles were OP, you would find more people using them, but you hardly see anyone using them. People love to exploit advantages (Be Cheap).

  • InFamous ELiT3

    What made QS a problem in pass Cods was Hipfire aim assist, but that doesnt assist anymore in ghost, problem solved. If someone has skills to QS without Hipfire aim assist, then theres no stopping that.

    • jordanxbrookes

      Quickscoping = skills?? What medication are you on?

      • Devin Wolfe

        The same narrow minded pills people like you seem to be on.

  • Condemnt

    Please if you think that snipers are the things that should be nerfed in ghosts you need to head over to gamestop and return the game, because you clearly havent played more than 5 minutes of the game.

    • Trizay

      IED’s and Guard Dogs anyone?

    • jordanxbrookes

      I’m prestige 2 level 21, and yes snipers do need some nerfing and balancing.

      • Devin Wolfe

        Or you know people need to quite being whiny bitches about things and just play the game.

        • we are pointing out flaws in a game which casual gamers (most of us according to mark rubin) like me frustrated when we dont have a chance to fight back.

          • Devin Wolfe

            Adopt a “No fucks given” mindset when it comes to games it helps you enjoy them more.

          • “No fucks given” when I can’t play a game… k den

          • Devin Wolfe

            You can play the game we snipers are not stopping you you are stopping you.

  • Condemnt

    Infinity ward is also a pretty unreliable source when it comes to game info. I can recall july/august of this year everyone saw the words. “No more quickscoping in call of duty ghosts”. Please the sniping in ghosts surpasses BO2 by a longshot and its is almost par with MW3 excluding the YY. These fixes mean nothing. I just hoppen on to a heavy duty game of domination, and people were still quickscoping and dropshotting eachother.

  • Wat

    i don’t think you “anti-quickscope-ists” get the point really, you only bring up the fact that a sniper is a 1-SK and that it zooms in too quick, but what you’re forgetting is that they both have to have 100% accuracy, you’re forgetting that factor, acting like it’s just a scope-fire and forget type of thing; no it’s not, remember that they still have to scope in, with a much harder time trying to get the shot right, especially with no crosshairs and hip-fire aim assist, and they still have to have 100% accuracy, there is more pressure with a sniper than a smg or an ar or even an lmg, becuase you miss a bullet, you fire another one in under 0.5 seconds, meanwhile a sniper has to shoot one bullet, then he is vulnerable for a short time, giving you the perfect opportunity to fire x amount of bullets back.
    tl;dr learn to realize that a sniper takes a hell lot more skill to use, than a sub or an assault rifle.
    rant over.

    • TheShadowReaper

      in all seriousness, are you sir serious about that? being on target? you can easily be on target 95% of the time if you hard practise for a month. after that if you keep playing you maintain your skill easily, thus if you use sniper rifle you abuse your skill. yeah i know it sounds stupid but think about us that need to be on target 4-5 times with an AR while a sniper needs to be only once

      • Devin Wolfe

        I’v been using a sniper for years and I still miss shots.

    • jasy

      Seriously, I fucking blow at quickscoping, but in Ghosts, I can go into a game and go positive by a huge amount. IT TAKES NO SKILL TO QUICKSCOPE.

    • MSTAR020

      Just watch this video, it explains my viewpoint perfectly.

      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5lCCgukVNAI

  • El Boia

    Not trying to start a fight or anything, but why is everyone so against quickscoping… i never understood that..

    • Trizay

      It’s because if someone is good at it then is basically giving them a one-hit kill weapon that never misses and kills you before you even have a fighting chance.

  • K.E.M

    I hate how people are being b!tches towards snipers. Snipers have to be precise to even kill,if they miss then they die,it’s a fact. AR and smg people are the ones wining “Oh that guy QuickScoped me and ruined my streak.” You have to either be lucky or Precise to get a quickscope. I honestly would love to see AR and smg users use a sniper rifle “the right way” and realize that shit is boring as fuck just waiting for a play to run by,especially when theres less people to run by past you. At least quickscoping is far more entertaining,you see more people on youtube using snipers than the rest.
    Watch,when they rid of snipers people will bitch about the AR’s then the LMG’s then Launchers,then SMG’s. Then all Call Of Duty will be is a pistol only game.

    • El Boia

      Oh no, we would not even be able to use pistols just fists, and when people complained about that, we would get rid of our hands and just each other with stubs, but that would be overpowered. Lets get rid of the arms completely and can only kick people, but thats just not cool, so lets get rid of the legs, and then we can just flop around like fish and bump into each other… I think we are getting somewhere here guys!! I sense a new Call of Duty idea, about to come upon us!

      • Devin Wolfe

        Its pretty accurate as people bitch about everything in a game now a days

    • Chris Mason

      Dude, deep breaths.

      QuickScoping is, technically, an exploit. Where’s my proof? Go back to some of the changes they made. The CM literally says; “…removed the hipfire aim assist that made quick scoping effective…”

      More or less.

      Sure, hip fire aim assist is only so good at certain distances but that is what made CQC quick scoping viable. When the cross hairs were still on screen and you scoped in, they would shrink until your scope was to your eye. Provided you were close and had just as much accuracy as an average SMG/AR user, you would get the shot on target in CQC.

      Hell, I’ve done it. But let’s face facts; while its not the worst exploit I’ve ever seen, its foundation lies in taking a function of the game and exploiting it for personal success.

    • Jasy

      Ok, everyone’s had enough of your shit man. Think about how you would feel if you were using the MSBS, and saw a guy running around the corner in front of you. You put 1 burst into him and then you get quickscoped by the same guy.

      • Devin Wolfe

        I wouldn’t give a shit myself as I don’t care I skip the killcam and go right back to killing.

  • Codgod69

    K.E.M, mastering quickscoping is easy. If you are trying to defend it, don’t act like it’s difficult and not OP. IRL, you could no scope fairly easy. But also, if I shoot you once with my AK and then you aim down sights and shoot me and then just run along that’s bullshit.

    • Devin Wolfe

      This isn’t real life its in a game will you people get this through your heads.

  • aeles

    I’m done with COD this year. This game is weak. Lag compensation is still here. The gameplay is dull and has nothing new.
    This is just another reason to stop buying the series. I have preordered all CODs since MW3. I will not buy the next one until I hear it is revolutionary.

  • a serious joke

    ive tried q-scoping on mw3 and granted i wasnt very good, nut i did okay and sometimes really good doing it, the only perfect games ive ever had were by usin a sniper (mw2 16-0) (mw3 17-0) but i didnt really q-scope i just picked off ppl and ran frm cover to cover like it should be done. but now you got ppl perching in one spot with a thermal scoped rifle making going thru some areas a sure way to die. the only balance sniper rifle i can remember is the 50 cal barret from mw3, it felt somewhat heavy and you actually had to aim sometime due to the sway, but it was still a great weapon. i admit some q-scope kils are a load of shite but this game isnt perfect

  • MrSquatch69 .

    I am a hardscoping sniper by trade. I move place to place, set up shop for a shot or two, then move again. I have been working on quickscoping since MW2, with no results, until now. I just wanted the ability to be able to turn and quickly defend myself when someone comes up on my position fast. I do feel that it is easier to quickscope in Ghost, not for sure why. I am not at all unhappy with the nerf on sniping, I hate the people that run a map and just quickscope all the time. It gives us snipers a bad rap. I just dont want them to ruin real sniping as a whole because of the ones running around doing it wrong.

    • Devin Wolfe

      “Real sniping” Arcade shooter I doubt that will happen.

      • MrSquatch69 .

        You are right…

    • hardscope really shouldn’t be a term…

  • Captain_Planet

    I play Hardcore (mostly) so, they can “fix” the snipers all they want to. But for me, there will still be Marksman rifles. lol, It’s all good though.

    This is why Quickscoping is OP and it is exactly the same in Ghosts. This video explains my viewpoint perfectly.

    I still think waw had the most fun sniping black ops 1 was balanced but I love waw never got angry when sniped

    • Devin Wolfe

      Should never get angry at a game.

      • Chris Mason

        I agree and disagree. First, yes, don’t get angry at a game. Second, as a competitive personality, I find I get angry when I run out of spawn straight into an IED, get QSed after landing shots on a Bush Wookie, find someone camping for their kill streaks in a corner with a dog, building campers on War hawk or Freight, etc. I understand the annoyance, definitely.

        • Devin Wolfe

          I’m not competitive I play to have fun.

      • 1 kill of a nuke and die, should I not be angry with all the adrenaline that was inside me just bursting out?

        • Devin Wolfe

          Learn to control your emotions like I have its a wonderful thing.

          • you can’t control anger mixed with adrenaline -.-

          • Devin Wolfe

            Yes you can.

    MY ASS, I just got into a domination match where half the lobby was quickscoping. That patch SURE HELPED.

    • thebulky1cometh

      Yeah I got annihilated by a QSer tonight, but I noticed that I was getting a ton of hit markers with the L115 (as opposed to 1 shot kills, even with good chest area shots).

  • K.E.M

    I’m looking for a valid mature answer.
    How has Quickscoping ruined your CoD experience?

    • thebulky1cometh

      Ruined is a strong word, because I still play. But there’s not much more frustrating than coming around the corner only to shoot first, get a hit marker or 2, only to have somebody quick scope and kill you…and the death cam shows MAYBE they were within a few inches of your chest or head.

      • K.E.M

        okok.That can get really annoying haha. But I can suggest to play heavy duty? It takes snipers more shots to kill you now. It took me 2 shots to kill someone and I was upclose to them even,so I was forced to hardscope and all.

  • thebulky1cometh

    If they really wanted to eliminate it, why not make it so hitting L2 wouldn’t raise the sites, but instead drop a bipod to set up the gun and then have a player view the cross hairs… I’m not talking anything too long, but like 1 full second.

  • Kippert

    Snipers often get called “the silent heroes” , in COD it’s 720-spin-YY-Fakie-weaponswitch-shot….yeah…i prefer the “silent heroes” role..

  • Why are people complaining about how people shouldn’t be able to quickscope? I honestly don’t have a problem with it. If people can quickscope they can it’s fine but there will always be a way to quickscope in every CoD game even tho they “say” that there is no quickscoping their ultimately is going to be quickscoping. CoD Ghosts even said they weren’t going to have quickscoping and guess what there is quickscoping. I honestly enjoy quickscoping, it’s really fun and I enjoy it. So quit whining and complaning about how quickscoping shouldn’t even be in the game. Let it be in the game and if you don’t like it then just deal with it.

    • Chris Mason

      I’m going to preface this by assuming you did not read how they changed quick scoping viability from MW3 to Ghosts and take the same “if you don’t like it, deal with it” approach and apply it to previous IW CoDs.

      In MW2, the Model 1887 Akimbo were capable of basically sniping people. There was also a Javelin exploit (go YouTube MW2 Javelin glitch) that was a funny troll technique. One Man Army Pro + Noob Tubes. Tac Insert boosting for Nukes. Commando 10 yard knife lunges. Most of this was fixed, but not all of it.

      In MW3, we had the extended mag exploit with shotguns (+50% pellets per shot making the USAS and KSG good and the Spas, AA-12 and Striker disgustingly good), the Snipe-95, Akimbo FMG9s, one SMG and AR to rule them all, more tac boosting in KC for stupid amounts of xp, the return of death streaks (Bowling didn’t lie when he said fuck you last stand, he just omitted that final stand would return, however).

      So… I get a nuke in Dom on Wasteland by cross-map tubing your team with OMA Pro and Danger Close Pro? I commando lunge you from 50 feet away? I rape you with a Striker on Dome? Rob that AC-130 from you with Dead Man’s Hand? Go 30-0 in FFA camping with my Akimbo FMG9s and MOAB you?

      Don’t like it? Deal with it.

      See where that logic is flawed? Same with quick scoping.

  • K.E.M

    Statement and question to all Anti-QuickScope people. This is an experiment for me actually,but let me say something first!
    I ran around quickscoping people on cod ghosts,and I got a reaction from 4 out of 10 people that I killed. Then next game I hardscoped from across the map, 7 out of 10 called me a hardscoper,and even 1 hate message sent to me.

    Would you guys like it if you where running and the coast was clear then suddenly you die from a sniper who’s across the map hardscoping being a regular sniper. Than die from a quickscoper that you could have killed ?

    • guest

      yes, because at least we know where the sniper is at to flank him

  • Captain_Planet

    I just leveled-up four squad members to level 5 the other night. I’m not sure if I got exactly 100 squad points.. I might have. Look, all I want is that damn rainbow background.

  • Nick Brazda

    You kids are all bitches, Crying about quickscopers, It’s a game not real life. And there will always be quick scoping, Something you bitches can’t do.

  • derMemory

    Let me tell you all something… It’s just a fucking game!

  • semir krcic

    i paid 65 $ for hackrs fuk outa here fuk ghosts

  • Luke66611

    Stop winging about snipers. Honestly. If you can’t spray down a sniper in the time it takes for him to react aim and fire. There is something wrong with you not the game. You can get kills with at without even aiming. If you want realistic play battlefield.

  • Luke66611

    People keep saying “in real life” if realism is the issue i should be able to pit one pistol bullet in your shoulder and you should be on the deck screaming for a medic who would probqbly chopper you out to the nearest triage. And your health wouldn’t regenerate. If you want a fast paced fps play cod if you want real life join the army. You are ruining the game for people that like it as it is.

  • SoaR Eski

    Everybody in this discussion wanting LMG weight on a sniper is trash. We would beat you without snipers to the point of rage it has nothing to do with us being good with only snipers. Feeding and trickshoting is just fun, and machine gunning the whole game isn’t.

  • jesus

    All of you saying QS takes no skill and that you can QS . You are a bunch of lyers if you knew then you would like it and have no problems with it but you cant QS you just say you can. I like playing with ARs and Smgs and when i get killed i dont cry about it because were is that going to take me . Just because i rage its not gonig to make the company change there game quickscopers bot the game to they can QS when ever they want they bot the game not you. I quickscope to they rage quit when my kill is the final one they tell me to use the sniper properly then when i hardscope and camp they say stop camping and hardscoping . Just shut up play the game and if you get killed by a QS don’t rage remember that you dont make the games so shut up and play
