In a new interview with PlayStation LifeStyle, Infinity Ward’s Multiplayer Project Director Jordan Hirsh confirmed that quickscoping is in fact possible to do in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. He did caution, though, that it is not easy to actually do so.

Quickscoping is possible. I wouldn’t say it’s easy! Most of the sniper rifles are balanced to be a difficult one-shot kill. So you have to get a headshot in order to get that one-shot kill, (especially) quickscope. So it is a possibility.

He stated that the sniper rifles in the game have been balanced in way that makes it possible to get a one shot kill only with a headshot.

      • Not nearly as small as you think and they are very loud and passionate to boot. Ask Vahn wat happened to him with he took away the DSR’s ability to get a quad feed without a collateral back in BO2… I’ll give u a clue, it wasn’t pretty haha

        • Wasn’t pretty you say, is that why quickscoping has been all but completely taken out of every COD since BO2? I am not a QSer but could QS easily in BO2. The QS community has very little voice that matters in COD. COD is completely geared towards pro players now (and I do not agree with that either), but Vondy has even stated there is little to no place for the casual gamer in COD. You think Vahn really cares about QSers crying about a quad feed over the money he is making off supply drops from little kids having their parents credit cards.

  1. As long as bullshit like the Drakon doesn’t exist, I wouldn’t worry too much.

    Here’s to hoping they don’t use aim assist as a balancing factor though.

    • If I was sniping that close, I would be better off throwing my 15kg rifle at his face ala Superhot.

      Quick scope? More like AHHHH eyeball in my scope due to recoil!!

      • I always found that trickshotting shyt to be dumb as fuk myself. How many times have i caught myself telling random squeakers on my team to stop fuking around, take out a reg gun and help me take these damn flags lol

        • Now you understand why I want the clans gone from YouTube for good. All they do is make CoD more cancerous. In MW2 they’d noob tube until there was one player left where he set-up, and they extended the amount of time so that everyone who died had to wait. Yeah, screw them, I hope they get what’s coming to them in IW and CoD 4. Enough is enough, they’ve done nothing for this franchise other than making themselves get 3+ million subscribers on YouTube (FaZe).

  2. Finally!!! Quick scoping is what has completely ruined some past COD’s (especially MW3) to the point where it’s almost unplayable. It’s not as bad in BO3, but I’m glad they’re finally taking some proactive measures to prevent it.

    • BO2’s DSR/Ballista + aim assist was where it was at its worst. Quickdraw + aim assist combination in MW3 was about as bad.

    • Can you explain why it ruined the game? I’ve never understood that at all. I loved it in MW1/2!! 360 quickscope to the face was great when you pulled it off.

    • Quickscoping haters are usually noobs. You always think of sniper rifles as overpowered guns. Well they are not. They have the best damage,ok, but that doesn’t mean they are overpowered. They lack speed(between each bullet) mobility,fire rate(except semiautomatic ones,which are like assault semi automatic guns with scope),they don’t have large magazines like SMGs,LMGs or ARs and they suck at close range battles. You kill one guy with the sniper and die by a pistol before your next bullet’s ready. Sniping needs lots of skills and people can’t understand that because they have never tried quickscoping. And because some stupid noob kids like you always lose by snipers accuse snipers for losing? Well firstly try sniping without camping and you will see that sniping is indeed too difficult even in BO2 and then cry about you being noobs. Stupid kids. And Activision listens mostly to your complains. That’s why COD is getting ruined over the years,not because of the snipers. Go play battlefield if you hate snipers,morons

    • He’s playing a limited Alpha version. Full balancing is normally not complete until after Beta with most games.

      Also Note: “Most of the sniper rifles” does have a “Most” in it.

  3. I don’t believe it until I get hands on it myself. Definetly gonna try this out in the beta. Hopefully the got the Intervention in the beta build.

  4. I might be by myself on this but that is BS. One shot kill only with a head shot. Fart noise! I could understand marksman rifle but not a true sniper rifle.

  5. hmmmm he said MOST of the snipers rifles not ALL of them…. i hope there will be atleast one sniper able to 1 shot 1 kill plsssss

  6. Nah, I’m not buying it from these cucks. Back in Ghosts they said the same crap and turned it out to be the opposite. It’s going to happen again, and quickscoooopes will still be easy like it has been

    • At least this time round they’re saying it’s still possible rather than saying “Quickscoping is gone” like with Ghosts lol.

        • You can still quickscope since it’s the same engine, just that you won’t get as many kills while quickscoping, unless you’re good at getting headshots.

    • Right, but on top of the typical nerfed ADS, bullet spread and aim assist mechanics they are also claiming to have removed the body multipliers typically placed chest up or waist up as well. If that is true, that is a real big problem to those that enjoy sniping, especially quickscoping. Since quickscoping is a hybrid between ADS and hipfire its going to be extremely difficult to precisely land a semi-hipfired shot without getting a hitmarker since that shot would have to hit a very specific part of the body to be lethal. Im typically annoyed by snipers but even i can see this as unfair especially if the TTK across the regular, much easier to use guns is fast like typical Infinity ward fashion. Theres probably going to be at least one high damage DSR, SVG, Intervention type sniper that people will end up flocking to almost exclusively tho. It wont be long till the other snipers suffering from these added nerfs get buffed to be more in line with a typical COD sniper rifle. I really dnt see this lasting beyond the 1st few patches, we all know the sniping community will flood these devs with death threats till it gets fixed if they have to lol

    • They are so much wrong if they do that (headshots only for 1 shot kills for snipers). Quickscoping is hard even with 1 shot kills from the waist up. And there are millions of quiscoping fans. If they ‘kill’ quickscoping,they ‘kill’ this COD. Quiskscoping is a part of the game. It’s not real of course but COD is a game,not reality. Learn the difference you retarded sniping haters

  7. I never thought of quick scoping as bad.. maybe it’s just me but I feel like ANY mildly realistic sniper rifle would one shot and the fact we are now in the apparent “future” makes no sense that no one would’ve developed a sniper rifle that could one shot anyway. The fuck is your deal IW. P.s I’m shit at quick scoping so no I’m not a 420 blaze it quick scope dick rider .

  8. All the footage shows players getting 1sk without headshots. That said, quickscoping in CoD4 was more of a challenge than other games in the series. There’s no perk for faster ads in the original. Some skill is required to do it effectively.

  9. Wait, so snipers only get one shot kills if its a headshot? That’s really annoying. I am not a quickscoper, but that seems unfair given the time between a shot in a bolt action rifle. Hopefully they tweak it for chest and above because sniping in these past games have been really not as useful. Just my opinion though!

  10. I doubt that this will be true in the full game release because it would take that many players away and not do good at all with sales.

  11. watching footage of enemies simply whip their sniper in my general direction and score a one-hit-kill despite the barrel of their gun being pointed at the ground – that takes me out of the action about as severely as bruce willis would’ve if he’d suddenly turned away from hans gruber and started singing christmas carols into the camera.
