Speaking to 3 News, Michael Condrey has touched on about how snipers will be balanced in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. Condrey stated that the team has been working for three years now on making sure all the weapons and classes are balanced.

Condrey states that they want “snipers to be really fulfilling experience,” but also make sure it is “equally balanced” with all the other weapon classes.

Haha, well, quick-scoping is a controversial one, as you probably know. We spent a lot of time focusing on game balance. We’re calling this the most customizable Call of Duty experience to date, you can really customize your play-style a lot. But at the core of it, Call of Duty is meant to be about skill, rather than an overpowered create-a- class. We’ve spent three years focused on that. So a player that has perfected play as a sniper, we want to allow that to be a really fulfilling experience, equally balanced to someone who has spent time perfecting their ability to use an assault rifle, a SMG, a shotgun or whatever. We want to provide a tremendous amount of choice, so you can play your style, which is probably somewhat different to mine. But it’s the skill that makes us different, not the selection. Does that make sense?

He went on to state that snipers will not have the ability to equip quick-draw because that leads to quick-scoping model.

That’s exactly right. Let me put it this way, sniper classes are not going to be overpowered relative to their peers. The ability to master a sniper rifle and be great at it will be equal to the ability to master any other class. We’ve done some things to make sure snipers are not able to take advantage of their properties – for example, there are attachments based on weapon classes that are specific. The ability to quick-draw with an assault rifle is important, but you don’t want to have the ability to quick-draw with a sniper rifle because that lends itself to being a faster, quick-scope model. We spent a lot of time trying to focus on it so I think sniper class players will find that it’s a really rewarding experience, but it won’t be over-powered relative to their peers.

Condrey emphasizes that the snipers will not be “over-powered” relative to the other classes available in the game.

    I wonder if my faith in this game will be worth it. So far so good though!!

    Good.

    Quickscoping is for faggots.

    • Edgy.

    • I’m assuming you die a lot?

      • iTYPE2ANNOY

        I’m assuming you are a faggot.

    • Slothigans

      Aww are you mad that you can get killed by one bullet when you have the chance to fight back with a weapon that can shoot hundreds per second and still die? That’s cute, Faggot.

      • Siftblade of Rivia

        1. If you have a gun that shoots hundreds per second, you’re hacking.
        2. You don’t really have a chance to fight back. Snipers are a one shot kill anywhere on the map. And with the aim assist (and yes, aim assist exists, even if you turn it off on consoles), it’s incredibly easy to do it. They act as shotguns with unlimited range. You can kill an enemy immediately before they can pull up their gun at close range, and that’s a problem.

        • iTYPE2ANNOY

          This is probably the first rational thing you’ve ever said on this website. I’m glad you’ve steered away from creating assumptions with no facts to support it.

  • IamConnolly

    Can you hear that? It’s the sound of 12 year olds everywhere crying out in pain.

    • swagyolo69

      they said there wasnt quickscoping in Ghosts and there was

      • Mr_ysi42t96

        No one said there isn’t quick scoping, it’s just more balanced

        • iTYPE2ANNOY

          The title of this video would disagree with you, stating “no quick-scoping.”

          PS. Learn how to read.

          • Mr_ysi42t96

            But the article doesn’t mention that…so it’s miss leading title….I guess you have to learn how to read :/

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            Technically the title says “hints at no quick scoping” so you are right. He’s just taking words out of context, ignore him.

          • Mr_ysi42t96

            Yeah you’re right

          • iTYPE2ANNOY

            It’s not my fault that it’s a misleading title. File your complaint elsewhere. I read everything perfectly, unlike you.

          • Mr_ysi42t96

            Yea obviously, if you read the article well, you would know that he didn’t mention that there isn’t quick scoping…so too bad you can’t read…..btw you are the one who started complaining soooooo yeah

        • king wolfe

          This doesnt look balanced…fast foward to 1:00…classic cod quick scopes

          https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=4GdISrTH2zo

          • Mr_ysi42t96

            Well I guess we have to hope that they balance the snipers even more…we gonna have to wait till we have hands on the game

      • Daniel

        I never saw a quickscoper and or trickshotter in BO1

    • Slothigans

      Why do you assume every quick scoper is 12? I’m 22 and I snipe cause I find it more fun, challenging, and more rewarding.

      • HAM

        sniping is different to quickscoping…….

        • Slothigans

          When I say snipe I mean quick scoping obviously. Is there any other weapon other than a sniper that can do that? I’m gonna make a wild guess and say no.

          • HAM

            Sniping is acquiring your target and taking the shot with good ACCURACY AND PRECISION. Not just aim assist. Quickscoping can be done with no skill.

      • 22 yr old Quickscoping in cod.. wow

        • Slothigans

          Um ok? Anything else?

      • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

        Quickscoping isn’t challenging nor rewarding. Quickscoping isn’t sniping, btw.

        • Slothigans

          Whatever makes you feel better about yourself. (;

          • Go on your fake faze account and cry because you were killed trying to trick shot. You’re sad.

    • TheShadowReaper

      *smells* the fresh smell of crybabies in the morning…priceless. yeah.

      • Eric Mandzuk

        Damn I really wanna hit u

    • Potato Republic

      It sounds so beautiful…

  • Risen Ravage

    All the faze kids crying and complaining.

  • TCB

    Sounds like they’re actually gonna balance what BO1 tried to do. This sounds better and better every day!

  • J4MES

    Sniping looks very easy from what I’ve seen. Someone got a Sniping Nuclear in one of the videos from Gamescom and that build of the game didn’t even have aim assist enabled. It may not be quickscoping but it does look very simple. BO2 was the most ridiculously OP game for snipers though.

    • cnnjones

      that wasn’t quickscoping, it was the ridiculous auto/sticky aim. if they remove sticky/auto aim on all classes, basically to the bare possible minimum, like previous call of duty’s had, the game will be much better, and autoscoping will be gone.

      • Dean Cowan

        That’s pretty funny, because the gamescom build didn’t have auto-aim.

  • Kyle Emery

    wow kool

  • Jordan Griffiths

    I got bad news for you quickscopers… Quickscoping will not be available in Advanced Warfare! 😉

    • fasd

      it will be
      haha making it slower to aim isnt saying there wont be quickscoping
      I used to not snipe without sleight

    • Slothigans

      Actually there’s no bad news at all buddy. (; I can promise you that quick scoping will still be present.

  • kyr95

    Just to make it clear. Michael isnt saying that there wont be quicksope.
    He says that sniping will be a challenge in this game like all the other classes.

    • Hopefully it’s like BO1. Hard and rewarding, but something you can master!

      • Josh

        Hopefully not! I want a tuned down version of BO2 sniping, that isn’t easy but does take some skill!

        • I mean bo1 quickscoping when you have a host. The hit detection was so awful if you were on a three bar.

  • meow

    quick scoping basicly means shooting soon as you scope, people are confusing this with what you can do in mw2-3 and bo2, is a glitch were you can shoot dead straight BEFORE scoping. you will still be able to quickscope but not glitchscopelike in mw2-3 and bo2

    • Baldmanz_RAGE

      Correct. Aim assist is still going to make it easier for sniper kills but at least you have to totally scope in before it takes hold.

    • A7 JinJi

      You’re an idiot if you think that quickscoping in CoD games from CoD4 to BO2 is a glitch. There is no glitch. I hear this way to often, either I’m glitching the game or ‘exploiting aim assist’ by quickscoping. All it is is a player who is bored of mundane SMG and AR classes trying to challenge themselves by doing something way more difficult. If you need some evidence to back that up then search ‘nine lives’ or ‘legitmeow’ on YouTube.

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gtnoGzJZkeQ&list=UU3NzAEBuUxcU_RF1cld1OMw

      • iTYPE2ANNOY

        Even when you’re not aiming down the sights and a player walks by your
        screen, it jerks your screen in his direction. So yes, quick scoping
        definitely utilizes aim assist as long as “aim assist” is activated. All
        this video shows is a guy that is usually aiming fully down the sights/
        hardscoping and even missing a lot more shots than if aim assist was
        off.

        • A7 JinJi

          But the aim assist is the same for all guns in CoD. It has been removed from snipers in ghosts ad almost in BO2. You can’t keep blaming the aim assist when it makes absolutely no difference to the sniping/quickscoping. I am a sniper and I can accurately quickscope map elements like bricks/bottles etc. This obviously doesnt require aim assist to do…

          • iTYPE2ANNOY

            No, there is aim assist on bricks and bottles. JK But in reality you actually are terrible and it takes you multiple tries to hit that shot. It doesnt take a rocket scientist to figure out that putting the center of your screen on the target (in this case, a defenseless bottle, while you stand still looking at it) will cause your sniper to aim at the target.

      • meow

        i wasnt talking about aim assist

    • meow

      quickscoping will always exist but the glitch side (pin point shot before scoping) is gone. also quickscoping came from people moaning about a having the use of quickdraw perk when using a sniper rifle

      • Jordan Griffiths

        But unfortunately, it will be very hard to do it. >:)

        • meow

          good i like that a quickscope was almost a last ditch defence like a no-scope xP

  • jordanxbrookes

    I’m sorry but technically quickscoping is still in the game. Glad they’re trying to make it challenging though. *Awaiting some boring arsewipe to tell me that I use fake accounts to get likes* -_-

    • Jordan Griffiths

      But they will make it very hard

      • jordanxbrookes

        Not as hard as snipers in Black Ops. Only true marksmen could snipe in that game, which is why Treyarch should try to go back to that. Plus it was more rewarding.

        • Jordan Griffiths

          When the game launches. I will start off with an Assault Rifle Bal-27 Atlas.

          • jordanxbrookes

            Same, the Bal-27 seems to be my go-to weapon 🙂

          • Jordan Griffiths

            And with the bonus weapons included within Day Zero. The EM1 will laser the quickscopers into submission! 😉

          • fasdsaf

            that gun is ass

          • Jordan Griffiths

            But. EM1 can have some attachments to make it an anti-quickscoper weapon.

          • Ratboy

            The Bal 27 with the EM1 is going to be my class on day zero 🙂

          • spartanelite

            It looks like ass but it looks fun as fuck to use 🙂

          • derrrrrrrrrrrrr

            Blops was fucking hard to QS in. Even against recruit bots, I got raped.

          • Mr_ysi42t96

            Same here 🙂

            ??

          • Johtoboy

            The IMR sounds like a ketchup dispenser

          • Damn good ketchup, mostly 1 burst 1 kill and unlimited of it.

          • Johtoboy

            True, but I wish it sounded a little… stronger.

        • Daniel

          I could quickscope 24/7 on BO1, that CoD has the best snipers ever

        • | Coop X

          so shooting a sniper with no bullet drop is counted for as a true marksman…Ill say it takes some skill but not a marksmen, since cod snipers go exactly where you aim there will never be “true marksmen” in cod.

          • Josh2242

            seeing as though none of us play cod for its realism, id say blops 1 sniping is as “marksman” as it gets in cod

          • | Coop X

            I can agree with that.

          • A7 JinJi

            Thats the same for all the guns though…

          • | Coop X

            no over distance of 100 meters your bullet will start to drop depending on the rifle and bullet velocity of the gun of course.

          • A7 JinJi

            yes, realistically, but in CoD there is no bullet drop on any of the guns

          • | Coop X

            that’s why I said there will never be a “true marksman” in CoD

        • Mr Mc BICHENN

          BO2 was one of the easiest games to snipe in. You did not have to be a “true marksmen” but that’s why we have opinions and I respect yours (:

    • Mr_ysi42t96

      Multiplayer trailers includes quick scoping and it seems to be working perfectly, HEADS UP, A WAVE OF QUICK SCOPERS ATTACKING SOON LOL

      The sniping looks fine from what I’ve seen – not too quick or too slow! I’m deffenitly going to use the iron sight at launch too 😀

      • jordanxbrookes

        Also notice how when aiming down the scope, it sways even though you can hold your breath.

          Didnt expect that.

      Hopefully, they can turn these words into reality. (Unlike IW and Ghosts).

      • Fitz

        hopefully they don’t make another game infested with lmgs and ied’s… theres nothing op about quickscoping… if you think there is, then ill prove you wrong.

        • alteredizzy1010

          i see you all over here talking about how your qs and to try and make it sound cool but it’s for wanna be mlg fanboys who don’t want to figure out the guns function so they use a easy one shot gun tha’ts for both up close and long when in real life snipers are shit up close

    • RdJokr

      Fine by me. A little quickscoping wouldn’t hurt anyone.

      • Josh2242

        until your on that 29 streak and get quickscoped in the d1ck

        • RdJokr

          I never even get that far when playing multiplayer any way, so not a big deal to me for now.

        • gg

          that sounds like a problem of you sucking, not really a problem with the game.

          • RdJokr

            Yes, I suck, and I ain’t afraid to admit it. But I’m gonna grind as much as I can this year, so eventually I’ll improve.

            Yeah, because you dash around on constant 30 killstreaks. -_-

    • QSing will never be fixed there is no way to 100% nerf it. Just make it harder

        but underpowered…

    • Jordan Griffiths

      What the video tells us that there is no Quickscoping present in this. Condrey will make this challenging when it launches. So if I were you, I better stick to Bal-27 or other weapons.

  • SPAWNST4r

    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=cIWgeNScXn0 2nd shot at the beginning of the video, quick scoping . more marketing bullsh!t

  • J4MES

    The perfect solution for sniping in general would be to remove the extremely generous aim assist. It’s the only reason that people in FaZe think they’re actually precision artists. If it was removed; not only would sniping be more challenging but I’d have more respect for it. Even toning down the aim assist would benefit as it would eradicate quickcoping without the devs having to tune it. Sadly; IW bowed to quickscopers in MW3 and then Treyarch really made it too easy in BO2.

    • Quickscoping doesn’t rely on aim assist. There are several videos on Youtube about it where good players prove it. 😛
      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gtnoGzJZkeQ

      • J4MES

        Quickscopers align their shots before the weapon becomes scoped. Prior to ADS; the first zoom in IS aim assisted. Once the weapon is ‘hardscoped’; then it’s essentailly free-aim. Mark my words; the aim and snap shot which is a ‘quickscope’ is aim assist enabled until the scope is fully up.

      • MajorLes

        Do you honestly believe everything you hear or see on YouTube? Aim-assist is a detriment to QSing because snipers are accustomed to the hit-box mechanic and seeing that Qscopers shoot before they fully scope; the mechanic is viable to the hit-box initially. The reason these QS idiots dismiss such a thing is to appear as if they are good and are skilled. QSing utilizes the hitbox like any other weapon in the game and seeing that the range on those weapons are significant; players can Qscope from a great distance whilst relying on the hit-box and aim-assist to line up in frame.

        • Lol, I can quickscope without aim assist just fine. But youtube actually had records of it

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            You can’t take off aim assist on console unless the developers do it manually, like on Killzone.

          • There’s an option to enable or disable it… But dunno if it takes it 100% off.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            That’s what I was on about lol. It doesn’t take it off fully, but I don’t know the full percentage.

        • Carrisi

          Correct

      • iTYPE2ANNOY

        Even when you’re not aiming down the sights and a player walks by your screen, it jerks your screen in his direction. So yes, quick scoping definitely utilizes aim assist as long as “aim assist” is activated. All this video shows is a guy that is usually aiming fully down the sights/ hardscoping and even missing a lot more shots than if aim assist was off.

      • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

        Yes it does lol.

    • Boiwoda

      You my friend are an idiot, aim assist has NOTHING to do with quick scoping.

      • J4MES

        Do you even know what aim assist is kid? It’s the biggest handicap in combat. I used to snipe on Black Ops 2 on PC without aim assist and it is much harder. Aim assist aligns snipers greater than AR’s because of the added range so it’s a very powerful tool indeed.

        • asdfasdfasdf

          ah yes my fine chap, that is why I turn my aim assist off

      • meow

        it does help as the sensitivity is high

      • Carrisi

        It has a lot to do with it

    • Jordan Griffiths

      I was in a game against a Sniper group on S&D in Ghosts. Gone 22-0 almost got a Kem there. And I make those Snipers Rage Quit by myself with my trusted MSBS with Deadeye. 🙂

      • jordanxbrookes

        Don’t you just love when quickscopers rage quit because they think quickscoping is cool and because you were wise enough to not do ballerina dances and use a sniper in close quarters, they say you’re trash and then they talk about how great they are, even though you just pwned each one of them 😉

    • Christopher1984

      Aim-assist makes players think they are good when actually it’s like a condensed hitbox aimbot. If you watch any video on youtube slowed down; you can actually see how powerful it is especially with sniper rifles. If they removed it though; faze and optic wouldn’t exist so you have to keep those pale faced kids happy somehow.

      • meow

        without aim assist its easier to snipe with A to B aiming then AR adjustment precision aiming, as precision aiming is dumbed down for consoles because of the use of being able to use aim assist. its why non aim assist players play on PC where the aiming is built for a mouse so when using a controller you get 30-35% better aiming. might have a video on this soon.

        • Christopher1984

          Sniping only has aim assist when the weapon is not fully scoped. It doesn’t exist when you are hardscoping but the initial shot is entirely aim assisted which is why it is extremely prominent and easy to accomplish. What is being said here is that aim assist should be removed entirely from the sniping aspect so players have to scope from freehand in the first instance and not being able to lock on and then free aim when scoped. I have tried sniping with aim assist off and it is very difficult to lock on to a player at a distance in which snipers were intended but with aim assist enabled; you can lock on within the range of the weapon and fire or easily track them freehand aiming because the first instance was tracked to their hitbox.

          • meow

            on PC using a controller there is no aim assist at all. on console there is no aim assist while hip (bo2 snipers) but is when soon as you start to scope and hardscope, unless turned off then there is none. used XIM on consoles.

          • J4MES

            I play COD on PC and there is aim assist with a controller on Black Ops 2 and Ghosts. On Ghosts; aim assist couldn’t even be turned off on PC.

          • godlikeleftnut

            on ghosts yes and you cant turn it of. on BO2 there isnt at all. you cant argue.

          • J4MES

            Wrong twice. Played BO2 yesterday w/controller and it has full 360 pad support. If you’re going to post as a guest; please use the same username instead of hiding behind different ones when you get proven wrong. Just makes it embarrassing. Same IP is a dead gimme

          • godlikeleftnut

            yes well done it has controller support but BO2 HAS NO AIM ASSIST! full controller support means you can use the menu as well as play the game with it, it doesnt mean you have aim assist, it just means you dont need a mouse (like use with a shield). i use to talk a lot about not using aimassist i thought you may of recognized the name but i deleted my account because i started getting sick and tired having these sort of conversations with ignorant people like you that even with a little google search you would of found out that youre wrong. been playing PC all my life fps online over 15 years, started on dail up! using my controller with out aim assist on PC (i do not play titanfall because it has aim assist (unless insane sense)) for over a year 500 hours on BO2, i have a CSGO account were i am rank gold nova 4 with a controller. If there is any one who knows about not using aim assist here, its me.

          • godlikeleftnut

            about not using aim assist *

          • J4MES

            Full controller support equates to aim assist when enabled. Simple really.

          • godlikeleftnut

            you cant enable aim assist on BO2 PC where the fuck as you getting this shit?

          • J4MES

            From playing the game on PC w/controller. Haha dumbass peasant!

          • PCMR

            Black Ops 2 now has aim assist on PC after it was patched in on request. Call of Duty Ghosts has aim assist when a controller is connected and you cannot disable it in the menu. If you are using a controller on PC, you shouldn’t remove the aim assist because it’s hard enough against the mouse/keyboard players. I use my Xbox 360 wired controller on PC as I am more accustomed to console gaming and I am thankful that aim assist is enabled on these games even though it’s hard going up against players who use the mouse/keyboard setup.

          • godlikeleftnut

            i dont have a problem. i have a 1.6 gun KD its not hard, on consoles its different. im rank gold 4 on csgo with a controller. you dont need aim assist on PC. a kontrol freak helps alot and probably an xbox one controller as the sensor has less deadzone movement.

          • Terry1978

            You don’t need to now – just plug the controller in and it is automatic:-) Only works with certain pads I believe – 360 official and DS3/4 with the correct drivers.

          • PCMR

            FINALLY! Terry whoever you are; you’re my hero for posting this!

          • godlikeleftnut

            hes not on about aim assist btw

          • godlikeleftnut

            ive used both razers a 360 and now my xbox one controller. just stop.

          • getting tired of you retards

            as you are too ignorant to use google.

          • J4MES

            LOL I don’t need to use Google when I play the game. That’s not even an image from BO2! Seems like you’re going through quite an effort to disprove something that is in the game. Pathetic kid. No matter how many usernames you choose; your IP is still the same so you can’t hide as a ‘guest’ LMAO! Go an ask the Steam community you dumbass peasant.

          • godlikeleftnut

            its from steam you fucking retard! its showing what full controller support means! how can you be this dense. there is no aim assist in BO2 a fucking trayarch dev just proved you wrong!

          • PCMR

            That is a message from February. Aim assist was added sometime late March and has also been in Ghosts day one hence why Treyarch added it. If you actually had a PC and played these games; you would know.

          • godlikeleftnut

            and stop logging out and voting your own shit

          • godlikeleftnut

            what is my IP then?

          • PCMR

            Just ignore the troll. Console kiddies always try and give it large when they haven’t even played the PC version for themselves and have to rely on frantically searching google. I use a controller exclusively on these games and I know EXACTLY what you’re talking about;-)

          • meow

            im 26 you dick probably older then you. im clueless ? im saying there is no aim assist on Bo2 PC and youre saying im wrong? but yet a treyarch PC dev says that im right? how is that clueless?

          • PCMR

            Nonsense kid. As I’ve said above; that message was in February and aim assist was added in late March after the security and stability patch. It was also in Ghosts from day one and locked in when a controller was enabled. Treyarch added it in on request and is even stated in the patch notes. Stop embarrassing yourself and if you want proof; go and buy a cheap PC, register a Steam account, buy the product and play the fking game yourself.

          • godlikelftnut

            source pls. and aha i am tweeting this retardness xD youre welcome to add me on steam if you want.

          • PCMR

            Of course you are kid. This is the problem with the COD community; it brings out all the immature morons who give it large hiding behind their keyboards talking utter rubbish. Look it up or play the game for yourself seeing that you apparently have a PC (BS i know) Just stop creating false claims and then having to parade through Google searching old articles to try and prove people wrong today. You’ve humilated yourself enough already and aren’t giving a good picture of PC gamers at all.

          • godlikeleftnut

            just looked, nothing PC related patch about aim assist being added apart from the Wiiu. i do play the game like i said you can add me on stream dont be scared and jesus do you want an actual picture of my PC? and again ive provided source’s to back up what im saying can you please provide some sources to back up what youre saying.

          • PCMR

            Of course you managed to look at all the patch notes in 2 minutes. You’re not even covering up your embarrassment now. Any PC picture will probably be off of Google images too lulz. You provided 1 out of date source and have lied the rest of the time. Simply full of s**t like too many people online now. You probably don’t have a Steam account either.

          • godlikeleftnut

            ok so i looked again https://community.callofduty.com/thread/200649218 nope nothing there. im not covering anything up, well ive provided a picter of my setup its up to you to think i got it from google or not. think its more the other way. and again do you want to add me?

          • PCMR

            That pic could be from anywhere. I also don’t want to associate myself with a hacker. My account is clean and reputable.

          • godlikeleftnut

            as for some one who is going on about not using aim assist and playing on PC i dont understand why you are trying to prove to me there is aim assist on PC when using a controller? then that means you are playing with aim assist? make up your mind..

          • J4MES

            I play BO2 on my laptop w/controller and on PC with M+K. Simple really.

          • godlikeleftnut

            whats next you going to be telling csgo has aim assist too when using a controller?

          • A7 JinJi

            Buddy, sniping in ghosts had no aim assist on snipers but you can still quickscope accurately. The aim assist is put on all guns (pre-BO2) on console because it is more difficult to aim with thumbsticks. You clearly don’t know what you are talking about because sniping without aim assist is just as easy. Quickscoping is not an exploit or trick or glitch. If it was it would already be patched/fixed. Watch this video, it might help you to understand better:

            ………… im out.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            You cannot take off aim assist. It’s on all console games unless it is manually taken out. The option(s) in BO2 don’t do anything.

          • meow

            actually aiming with out aim assist is only difficult on consoles as its been dumbed down as you have the use of aim assist

          • Zach

            What people don’t realize is that if you are quickscoping, if you miss that one shot you should be dead but your opponent most likely isn’t very good to hit you with 3-4 bullets with an AR which is very easy.

        • iTYPE2ANNOY

          You are incorrect…They win: the match.

    • DOT

      Quick scoping has nothing to do with MLG.

      • Exactly so why do some people oath that their quick-scoping is somehow their ticket into MLG. I think you might have missed the joke.

        • Fitz

          since when do we quickscopers think were mlg… were just better than the people that sit in a one door building behind an assault shield with a LMG, that has no recoil and has a sight on it that finds the target for them.

          • Corey

            He left FaZe because of how people were treated in the team, and he didn’t appreciate it. Its harder to accomplish sniping than to pub stomp. Sure, we get no scopes and trickshots, but it takes time doing so rather than to hip fire with a smg and get headshots and most snipers get nerf. As vectors can do as much damage as an AR across map. So, tell me about how snipings bad? It’s honestly harder to get into a well known team than a well known sniping team that both can make cash.

          • Tricky VIk

            “I like the snipers and their montages, just not that one.”

    • Luis

      I have yet to understand why the cod community complains about every little thing. Like quickscoping. Would you rather they sat or camped and hard scoped like on terminal in mw3? Or the fact that maybe theyre way better with a gun like an smg than a sniper(feel the need for more of a challenge)? I found more people complained about me quickscoping than when i got moabs. Weird. Guess people rather die by a moab/nuke than a sniper. 100-5 or 30-5. Logical math.

      • someone

        Because a moab takes more skill that’s why they don’t complain

        • Luis

          Nice of you to speak for them. I guess people rather die around 15 times by the same person than getting quickscoped maybe 5 times in a game

  • Condrey’s treading on shaky ground here.

    If you guys recall, Rubin said that, for Ghosts, quickscoping would be harder / non-existent. And players proved him wrong.

    It’s on their best interest to not say blanket statements as “NO QUICKSCOPINGZ” as to not look bad to the player base.

    • kyr95

      He didnt even say that there wont be quickscope.
      He said theyll try to make it as challenging as possible.

      • The point is: devs lie.

        • Guywithbrains

          Something more like: they don’t tell everything what they should. They never said that there won’t be quickscoping in the game. We’ll see then…

          • Yeah but with Ghosts they said

          • Guywithbrains

            Right… but at the same time it is one of the features that shape Call of Duty feeling… quickscoping, 12 years old calling names in the mic and so on… 😀

          • I wasn’t saying anything for/against quickscoping, just that the devs lie :p

    • I would personally assume that if quickscoping WOULD become a problem in the end and players were able to utilize it anyways, then I’m more than sure SH would make a patch for it to fix it ^^

  • Prince Of The City.

    I’ll believe “no quickscoping” when I see it. These people lie about so much shit before the release a game.. For ghosts they said no quickscoping and dedi servers.. Lol okay.. What happened there? Lying pricks. Honestly though, even if quickscoping is in the game ( which I’m 90% sure it is ) I wanna see these kids try to get me while I’m boost jumping and dodging all over the place with an SMG lol

    • A7 JinJi

      The sniper will still get you because of the fact that he has a higher skill level than you

      • MichiganerE

        “Skill”

  • Slothigans

    Say what you want but quick scoping is still gonna be done no matter how much it’s changed. You don’t need quick draw to do it look at black ops one. I am a sniper myself and I can promise you that there will still be quick scoping.

    • Slothigans

      Oh and they said that exact same thing before ghosts came out. Just sayin’.

    He says theyll try and make it more challenging. Just so you know before you start accusations with no reason.

    I’ll believe it when I see it. Infinty ward said the same thing with ghosts.

    • kyr95

      He just said theyll try to make it more challenging. They didnt say “no quickscope” 😛

    • Slothigans

      Well don’t get your hopes up buddy.

      • Juses

        Why would I get my hopes up?

        • Slothigans

          Maybe because you said I’ll believe it when I see it? And all I’m saying is to not get your hopes up cause there’s a guarantee that there will still be quick scoping.

          • Juses

            Oh ok I got confused

          • Slothigans

            It’s all good. (:

  • Wraith

    Let’s just face facts. as long as there will be snipers in the game, there will be quickscoping in the game. Any REAL action to stop quickscoping will probably result in snipers being impractical for use, especially considering CoD maps aren’t designed for players to set up, hardscope, and wait. OH WAIT! ‘Course they are, remove quickscoping and you’ll have even more campers. Removing quickscoping is hard.

  • Tyrant Era

    FINALLY!!

  • Xander

    I’d like to pint out he never said it was impossible, it’s basically sniping without quickdraw. Back to classic, challenging COD4/BO1 sniping. Quick scoping is possible, but it’s the snipers who have spent time developing their skills that will excel in using it to their ability. Being a sniper myself, I’m perfectly okay with this. It’s not fun without challenge.

    • Slothigans

      Now I’m even more excited for this game. I liked sniping when it was actually a challenge. Like the first black ops.

  • Josh2242

    As long as we don’t get killed with one shot to the pinky toe. If the damage multipliers across the body are ok then ill be fine

  • Josh2242

    Quickscoping aside, who thinks the sounds of the guns don’t sound like the plastic sounding guns from blops2? The sound of crisp metal guns is something i miss from blops1 😀

    • Slothigans

      That sound from the famas. So beautiful dude. You can just hear and feel how raw it was.

    Yea but that 1 shot pistol isnt op either hmm

    • Josh2242

      That pistol, in my eyes at least, wouldn’t be op unless its a one shot kill to ANYWHERE on the body

  • Guywithbrains

    At the same time I love and hate quickscoping. I love to get some nice feeds (not in objective modes like domination). But when I’m on high streak and I get killed, then I get that feeling “I hate quickscoping and quickscopers so much!”

  • Ryumoau

    As someone who never uses a sniper rifle, i’m glad quick scoping has been minimized. Let snipers make kills using actual skill and not cheap exploits.

    • A7 JinJi

      Sniping quickscoping is VERY definitely NOT a cheap exploit. If it is, then maybe you could try it and see how you keep up with a sniper?

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gtnoGzJZkeQ&list=UU3NzAEBuUxcU_RF1cld1OMw

      • Ryumoau

        i have no interest in using boring sniper rifles. Its still obnoxious as hell seeing people run around with them and getting instant kills while people with Assualt Rifles have to pour bullets into people to get a kill.

        • A7 JinJi

          sorry but getting 3 bullets into someone with an automatic gun that can shoot literally up to 30x the amount of bullets a sniper can shoot in a minute is not difficult.

          • Dean Cowan

            Neithers quickscoping, in Blops 2 anyways.

        • Tricky VIk

          “Don’t knock it til’ ya try it, or maybe practice, I dunno, I’m not so good with snipers but I like diversity so it’s entertaining, either way I will HAVE my revenge.”

  • Comrade

    I think one way to get rid of quickscoping (or at least nerf it) is to make some sort of reverse damage drop off for sniper rifles. The sniper rifles will do less damage at close range and do more damage at long range.

    • Ryumoau

      agree completely.

    • A7 JinJi

      that makes absolutely no sense

    • Josh2242

      Well that goes against the laws of motion in physics. When a bullet is fired, the speed at which the bullet travels begins to slow down as it travels. But an object has more force when it is traveling faster

      • Comrade

        As true that may be, but I’d prefer balance over realism.

        • A7 JinJi

          It IS balanced. The fact is that snipers who quickscope you all the time can only do that because they have practiced and worked at it for a long time. Quickscoping in a public lobby is not just something you can pick up and start doing perfectly right away. Don’t believe me? You try to quickscope in a public match and compare your score to what you get with reg. guns

          • Comrade

            But it is still annoying how a sniper can kill me at close range in one hit in the stomach at full health while I cannot do the same with weapon that is not a sniper or shotgun even if I shot them in the eye at full health.

          • Slothigans

            DUDE! IT’S A FUCKING SNIPER! Of course you’re gonna get killed by a fat fucking bullet man. How can you be so dumb?! You don’t deserve to play this game.

          • A7 JinJi

            Yes but the sniper HAS to hit his first shot. If he misses, he is dead. The snipers that kill you like that are more experienced players who have worked hard and practiced sniping. The fact is that your gun shoots more bullets per second than a sniper can. Think about how many times you kill a sniper at close range compared to how many times he/she kills you and you will see that it is balanced.

          • Tricky VIk

            “Sometimes they get 2 shots off, it could be the internet though, either way I dun complain, if I dies, I dies, but when I come back, they better be ready.”

          • Dean Cowan

            That’s funny. Because I picked up a dsr and started quickscoping. Probably because Von sold out to the 12yo snipers.

      • jooker-jr

        in cod world EVERYTHING is possible.

  • A7 JinJi

    Seriously, to all these reg. gunners who don’t actually know what quickscoping is, and think that it is a cheap exploit of a game mechanic and requires no skill, explain why you can’t pick up a sniper and do better than you would normally do with your ACR or AN-94. Also the fact that, as a sniper, I can pick up a reg gun and drop massive 30-40 kill gameplays every time just proves that sniping is much more difficult.

    • Josh2242

      Your right it is more challenging. The reason why i believe its ridiculous is because the time to kill of a sniper bullet is the same across all distances. so at close range, a snipers ttk is faster than an smgs ttk which makes it feel like the reg gunner had no time to react

      • A7 JinJi

        But the sniper at close range can get 1 shot off, this has to hit for it to be a kill. Take BO2 and the DSR for example. With the patch, the DSR fires 1 bullet every 1.5 seconds. Think about that. In a fast-paced game like CoD that is a long time. Compare that to an SMG, which fires an average of about 6 or 7 bullets in 1 second. Now acknowledge that the SMG at close range is a 3 shot kill weapon and you will see that the game is balanced.

    • Slothigans

      Completely agree.

    • Dean Cowan

      When I put 3-4 bullets into someone, then he just goes “Bloop” with his sniper I feel like playing the “insta-kill” noice from zombies.

  • A7 JinJi

    Snipers don’t need any nerfs. The sniping community is literally the community that gets shat on the most, simply because people are annoyed at the skill gap between a sniper and a casual player.

  • MoreFriedChicken

    remember when they said quickscoping is not the game (ghosts)?
    Yeah right… The sniping community always finds away around

    • CAKEBOMB

    Apparently he did not watch their own multiplayer reveal trailer, Where at 0:27-0:30 there was a clip which was obviously a Quickscoper easily quickscoping and did not pay attention to the quickscopers on youtube already. “No quickscoping”, Yea when pigs fly. It was a broken game mechanic that they could of fixed but did not when it got famous, its too much of a money maker to get rid of now.

    • A7 JinJi

      It really isn’t a broken mechanic. If it was it would be fixed by now. Quickscoping is clearly being pushed out of CoD but without creating a new engine it will never be completely out.

      Don’t come with how you wish CoD could be selectively realistic

      • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

        Realism is irrelevant, quickscoping is factually a problem and always will be.

    • Slothigans

      Yeah bro, calm your tits.

      • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

        Just because you’re biased?

    • Bdagsdvds

      Well nobody jump shots or drop shots in real life either, and there is no rushing

  • XLKILLA

    Is this a fucking joke? Look at all the sniper gameplay. It’s nothing but op quick scoping garbage. It’s going to be just as bad if not worse then BO 2. This game is nothing but BO 2.5. All the quick scoping gameplay I’ve seen so far is one shot kills to the foot and a ton of quick scoping so this article should just be deleted

    • Juses

      Ooooh you said a bad word.

    • Guywithbrains

      I see quite much similarities with Black Ops 2. But I think this will be the game which Black Ops 2 was supposed to be (better movement, less overpowered things and no more Nuketown spawntrapping)

      EDIT: Oh and if Infected returns…

  • Swag Lord 420

    looks like anther year of black ops two!

    Can i draw everyones attention to cross’s videos on AW muliplayer and its sniper class he quickscopes most of the time condrey is lying like they do every year about this

    • Dean Cowan

      Yeah, one of the most well known and one of the best snipers is is a good representation of the average player…

  • PHAT PETE

    add me on xbox IcAn1080NoScOp

    • iTYPE2ANNOY

      NO.

  • Aymanizic

    It’s quick scoping that’s the problem not no scoping

  • king wolfe

    Theres a one shot kill assault rifle that you can use quickdraw and scope on…Its actually better than a sniper more mobile and quicker…

  • Michael

    You can still quickscope. The ability to not equip QuickDraw was a great move by SH. Condrey is right though, we can’t have these bo2 quickscopers invade and ruin this game again. Vondaharr gave you quickscopers a gift in bo2 so go play that instead of AW.

  • cnnjones

    quickscoping became a problem when some previous games took out all the sniper line of sights, because run ‘n gunners were getting picked off left and right by snipers playing like snipers, and started whining and complaining.

    then some previous games, took out the sniper line of sights and changed the gameplay because of those whiners, so, some people started running around quickscoping, now they’re complaining that they’re losing to qs snipers.

    map design either encourages qs, or encourages traditional sniping.

    try qs on array, on blops, and you wouldn’t last a second, because you’ll get picked off by an ar or smg.

    maps have to be designed to include every weapons strengths, not just one, run ‘n gun smg.

    also, forcing sniper line of sights to some obscure corner of the map, so as to not interfere with smg run ‘n gunners gaming, encourages qs.

  • SkylineDesigns

    yay no quickscoping!

  • MIKKEtheMIDGET

    This is just perfect news 😀

  • Pete

    They need to bring sniping back to Black Ops 1 style, that was perfect

  • Sniper

    That’s what they said about the last two cods. Day one we snipers will come back. You cannot stop us. Brace yourselves. The quickscope montages are coming.

  • Emre

    i hope the normal scope zoom comes back. and not like ghost.

    • Guywithbrains

      I think it has been confirmed dual render (or whatever it is) is coming back…

  • Underdog BO1 FTW!

    That’s what they said on Cod Ghosts

  • LevelKap

    the movement is already going to make it hard enough to aim. Why would they remove quickdraw for snipers?

    • jooker-jr

      IMO snipers are about precision.

  • George

    This Obey member posted a good video on this. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GqQqU0NrUa4

  • Comrade

    Anyone know why quickscopers usually use bolt-action instead of semi-auto?

    • jooker-jr

      they have high power

      • Comrade

        Certain semi-auto snipers have been just as strong as bolt-actions.

        • jooker-jr

          thats why weapns like the barret 50.cal are popualr because it usually takes one bullet to kill

          • I loved the AS50 in MW3. Crap scope zoom but variable sight and speed proficiency made it a beast.

    • brad

      Usually bolt actions are more accurate, plus its more rewarding hitting a feed with a bolt action because you can’t just spam the trigger

    • Olaf Marin

      because you can 1 shot kill

  • I_HAV2_POOP

    Boy how many times have we heard this….

    • jooker-jr

      • MichiganerE

        Nah, I doubt it.

        • jooker-jr

          lets be positive. ( but this is the last time that we believe u in this topic )

          • MichiganerE

            Be positive about what? There’s nothing left to be positive about with CoD. “this is the last time that we believe u in this topic”
            The last you believe me? Why me, what did I do?

          • jooker-jr

            i meant cod devs.

            and i said be positive because its a new dev and its thier 1st game.

          • MichiganerE

            There still a CoD dev under Activision’s rules. So I have no faith left.

  • jooker-jr

    IMO bo1 was the best

    it required skill to QS with it.

    Well i guess this advanced warfare gameplay is fake?

    Fast foward to 1:00

    • elzorro

      what the hell at 1:20; the dude didn’t even scope fully, but halfway and still got the kill. I don’t want AW to turn out to another BO2 FFA “QUICKSC0PEZ” sausage fest……

    • Ryumoau

      thats pre alpha build footage and doesn’t have any bearing on the final product, which could easily have fixed things.

  • Bmeowmix

    Hopefully the “ability to master a sniper rifle” means more than just aiming at any part of the body and firing.

  • Condrey your making a bad choice my friend…

  • Bruhh

    THIS GAME WILL BE SHIT WITHOUT QUICKSCOPING AND TRICKSHOTTING BECAUSE MOST OF THE COD COMMUITY IS TRICKSHOTTING AND FEEDING SO UR GOING TO TAKE THAT AWAY WELL HAVE FUN SELLING THE GAME]

    • elzorro

      I lol’d
      They’ll find a way just like how they did in the original BO and Ghosts; if they can’t “adapt” they can just go back to their QU1CKSC0PEZZ!! infested BO2/MW2

    • Ryumoau

      stop abusing the caps lock, idiot.

    • JaBoiKnoWs

      This is a poorly thought-out post. “Most of the CoD Community” wants to play the game as it is supposed to be played. IT’s the Youtubers and the people that think they are Youtubers that go around quickscoping and trickshotting.

    • Tricky VIk

      “I hate to disagree, but no.”

    They always say they’re taking away quickscoping. And I’ve seen quickscoping in the gameplays, so unless they’re pre-nerfing…

  • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

    OMG THANK YOU BASED CONDREY I’M SO HAPPY RIGHT NOW HNNNNNG

    • brad

      Quickscoping will still be in the game, don’t worry buddy! It’ll just take a tiny bit longer to scope in 😀

    • Doesn’t mean it’s true. Developers have a completely different perspective of the game compared to teenagers who invest a lot of time in sniping. They even lied about Ghosts, said there wouldn’t be quickscope, What do you know, it was one of the easiest cods to quickscope on.

      • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

        I know. But it’s balanced because I can use Overcharge for my Exo Abilities. Exo Stim/Exo Shield will be perfect against snipers.

        That was a Raven employee. Ghosts used the same 15 year old Quake engine. Advanced Warfare is using a couple lines of the old code and that’s pretty much it. Quickscoping in AW is very possible, but it’s easy to use strategy to your advantage. We get to jump around a lot, so quickscoping will only be used well in the Traditional Playlist.

        • How to counter snipers: Exo riot and be ready to throw your spikeball when it ends. Might actually make a class like this for SnD if there is a trickshotting clan against me 😮

  • JaBoiKnoWs

    Condrey really does a great job answering questions and making himself clear. He’s also done a great job (at least it seems, we’ll find out on Nov. 3rd for sure) listening to fan feedback and making changes that the majority of people want to see. Very impressed.

  • Xecho

    What a liar

  • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

    If you see snipers in the lobby, use the Exo Shield. Or Exo Stim.

    • godlikeleftnut

      that.. is a really good point! give this man a cookie xD

      • jooker-jr

        A high resolution cookie ??

  • Drasadex

    hmmm, didn’t Mark Rubin say that there wouldn’t be quickscoping in Ghosts? (and look what happened lol)

    Anyway, I hope what Condrey says is true. I’d HATE to see quickscoping make another return…

  • K.E.M

    Christ! LEAVE THE SNIPERS ALONE!
    Why do people keep saying, that the snipers are “OP”?
    THEY ARE NOT! It takes skill and Luck, for those saying anybody can do it, then YOU do it, Heck! I have not even been killed by a sniper in AGES. I’ve seen people trying to qs, but failed. Why is that?
    Well to answer you, it’s that QSers have to stop dead in their tracks to QS you, all you need to do is just move or jump, and BAM their dead, it’s not hard people! And for those saying that they make you lose, so? Who cares? It’s not like your going to put “I have a 3.0 WL in CoD AW” on your resume.

    The CoD community is honestly pathetic, people actually QS as their job, They upload it on YouTube, theres Pamaj, OpTic (anyone in OpTic really), 9Lives, etc;
    Theres no pleasing with people, “Ooh! He camped with a sniper! FAGGOT CAN’T QIOCKSCOPE!?”, “YOU QUICKSCOPED! FAG!”
    Actually, Quickscoping is sort of ‘Art’ for the Call of Duty Franchise. When someone or even you, gets a Final Killcam with a Quickscope, and you hear people actually complimenting you, thats a rare occasion for some.
    You can bring an Argument saying why QuickScoping is OP, and I can counter it.

    • elzorro

      It just pisses me off when I see people in gamemodes like Search who arent playing the objectives correctly; it’s SEARCH AND DESTROY, not Spin around in circles and kill someone. And everytime I snipe normally, or reg gun those certain type of people, they’ll go into rage mode

      • brad

        Thats trickshotting, not quickscoping

        • elzorro

          Either way, you see most TSers and QSers not PTFO with a bad attitude to begin with

    • Olaf Marin

      “Ooh! He camped with a sniper! FAGGOT CAN’T QuiCKSCOPE!?”, “YOU QUICKSCOPED! FAG!” soooo fucking true , i agree , leave snipers alone

      • elzorro

        I thought we were talking about “quickscopers” here in general and not “snipers” in general. Diff between the two? Most “quickscopers” find it a sin to “hard scope” or whatever.

        QSers: “FKING HARDSCOPER”, ” WHY YOU BRING YOUR PISTOL OUT? PUSSY!!! , YOU CANT SNIPE FOR SHIT”

        tired of it

  • GNARK1LL420

    Let just go back to Black Ops 1 sniping

    • elzorro

      I like this +1

    • iTYPE2ANNOY

      It’s sad that only a minority of people will agree.

  • MoonMan

    Not saying this is good or bad, but sniper rifles were built for accuracy and range, to have the penetration and damage at a distance superior to smaller arms. They were also made to pierce armor, destroy small tanks and aircraft. So why complain about being killed in one shot, the weapon is doing its job.

  • Jesse

    I honestly dont care about quickscoping and as long as all the stuff is as balanced as possible than I will be happy no matter what the other player’s playstyles are. People say that GroundWar on Black Ops II is dominated by quickscopers right now and just yesterday I played a few matches myself and although there were a lot of snipers and quickscopers it was still intense as ever and fun as ever. Again as long as it still seems fun to me than I don’t really care what other people think about the game because in the end the only thing that should matter is how fun it is to you because that is the main reason videogames are made!

  • brad

    Quickscoping will still be easy to learn. Just no QuickDraw means the timing is a little different. The last game that tried to take quickscoping out failed horribly, which is why it was put back into BO.

  • George Claude

    Guys are you seriously believing him. Don’t you remember last year “no quickscoping in cod ghosts”, look how that turned out. Also if you go on youtube and watch people with early gameplay they’re quickscoping like its nothing. I’m keeping my expectations low.

    • justchill1234

      this guy just said that there is no quick draw. it will probably take skill to be quikscope and those people deserve to be rewarded

      • George Claude

        you couldn’t put quickdraw on the snipers in bo2, and quickscoping was easy as hell, im still not buying it

  • Guywithbrains

    I just checked one preview of Advanced Warfare (of course in my land’s language, Finnish) and there were a couple of interesting things… (Don’t read if you don’t want to know)

    – In one mission you have to save Nigeria’s prime minister (SP)
    – You can “draw” map to the ground (SP)

    ^ I think these are new things what we haven’t heard about…?

    • Dipper

      i know about the first (traffic mission)

      • Guywithbrains

        Do you mean that Traffic mission has this specific task to save the prime minister?

        • Dipper

          not sure if prime minister or president.

          • Guywithbrains

            Well that preview said it was prime minister…

            But that second thing… I can display my map to the ground in singleplayer? Brilliant way of making as “clean” HUD as possible. 😛

          • Dipper

            Traffic is a mission set to appear in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. It involves rescuing the president of Nigeria.
            (callofduty.wikia.com/wiki/traffic)

            oh good thing about the map

          • Guywithbrains

            Okay, so that first thing we already know about.

            By the way do you have a good feeling about this Call of Duty’s story and multiplayer? I have seen a lot of people getting excited again after Black Ops 1… which tells a lot.

          • Dipper

            the campaign will be epic and mp is fresh air.
            My friends aren’t going to play because the co-op isn’t zombies… 🙁

          • Guywithbrains

            Oh so those are that kind of people who love to play the overrated Zombies mode… also I think that it is better to have good story and mp than bad story and mp but good co-op…

          • Dipper

            a thursday:

    BO2 was a snipers game basically…i mean league play wasn’t bad with snipers but pubs was a horde of snipers. Ghosts. I personally didn’t get quick scoped but that’s not to say no one else did. i THINK ghosts made it harder for quickscopers IMHO

    i dont understand why they dumbed down the sniping considering people will be flying and dashing all over the place, already making it hard enough. Quickscoping isn’t easy, its a skill that we snipers have to take a lot of time mastering.. I’m still going to love the game, but if anything, they should have made it quicker. I’m still excited for the challenge though!

  • Charlie

    He never once says quick scoping won’t be on the game. All he said is you won’t be able to put the quick draw handle on snipers.

    It will be harder, probably more like Cod4, but it’ll still be there if you master it. I think that’s perfect. Considering how fast paced this game is, I think the cry babies on both sides will be happy.

  • Stefan Lang

    Sniping should be closer to BO2 then. I just know it’s gonna be harder with the exo suits but in the playlists without them is probably where snipers will live. I personally think quick scoping is shit because every quick scoper I come across bitch when you “hardscope” aka USE THE SNIPER CORRECTLY. It’s gonna be fun melting kids trying to quickscope this year. If it isn’t as much bullshit QS kills this year then Bravo to SH.

  • Mike

    You don’t even need a perk to aim faster people still do without it. Don’t understand why anyone would think it will prevent it

    • PatPatPat

    • jooker-jr

      No. But it kinda looks like something from destiny.

  • Trizay

    I don’t understand why we can’t just go back to Black Ops 1 style where sniping was feasible but quickscoping was virtually impossible. I’m not exactly sure what they did in that game, all I know is that they did it right once, so why can’t they do it right again?

  • Black

    Kinda weird to say that after Kross already released a montage. :/

  • pulseimpact

    They can’t fix quickscoping because the bullet magnetism in the engine is the problem not aim assist: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r2DWPhn_oS8

  • Alex12345

    I don’t see where it hints at no quickscoping… Just says not overpowered so you failed like all the other dumb articles about this

  • Native

    Don’t get your hopes up. They also said that quick scoping wouldn’t be in Ghosts of BOII and look how that turned out. They said no QuickDraw. They didn’t give us any indicator of how fast the default scoping in sequence is, so it could be relatively swift. In other words. If scoping in isn’t any slower than it has been in the past two games, then yes, QUICKSCOPING IS RETURNING. However, if they slowed it down more, way more, then we might have a chance. They could also affect the spread of the bullets for the first few seconds of looking through the scope, but that probably isn’t a realistic possibility. So again I say, just because QuickDraw can’t be used for snipers doesn’t mean that quickscoping is gone. It’s happened before and it can happen again.

  • kreddyfrueger111

    It should be overpowered! Its a High Powered Rifle, it fires a bigger round.. Anyone can spray and Assault Rifle around the corner and get a few kills, but you chance that with sniper rifle you’re looking at Hitmarkers, especially with the fact that you reload after every shot. -Sourced, Actual Gameplay-

  • Favorite Ape

    All they give is “hints” and “suggests”. I’ve seen them do this every year and it turns out to be b.s. Whatever gets people to buy the game.

  • Guest

    Condrey states there is no quickscoping, yet in Tmartn’s video, he quickscopes at 3:44.
    Yeah, there’s no quickscoping fuck you Mike and your game.

  • Favorite Ape

    Is he admitting they were before?
