Most of the time they do nerf to appease. The sniper rifles didn't need nerfing in BO2, since it overly favoured run and gunning anyway (hence the mouthbreathers moaning about the Target Finder because Scavenger was awesome and who goes without Toughness anyway?) and they don't need it in Ghosts. There are plenty of examples of IW and 3arc merely catering to complainers.
Lol, I prefer not to use the term quickscoping. I snipe, because reg guns are to easy and make the game boring therefore. because sniping actually requires skill. and if its so "overpowered" and complain about it then why do you do it? see how easy it is. this is an arcade game and thats just how it is, no video game is ever realistic not even GTA 5.. catchin my drift? and BF4 is not no different i can snip/ quickscope in bf4 just as good as COD quit complaining cause u dont know how to use smart tactics against snipers. end of story
- Bacon out.
Dont know if anyone caught this because I figured it would be good news.
Now lets see how true this is since the put "quickscoping" in parenthesis.
Here is the actual quote from the "dev" "Sniping is in the game, but due to how the game plays it's a pretty different animal than you'll find in your run of the mill modern military shooter. Quick scoping and no scoping are ineffective."
Now notice how he says it is ineffective but not "gone". ?
But what is sad is that the story stretches out what the developer actually said. Cant wait to see the TF forums when people read hearsay from the hearsay.
