Could you of not just commented on one of the other dozens of threads with the exact same gripe? Booohooo hoooo I can't get a quad feed just suck it up and learn to deal with it. I'm sure all your fellow quickscopers did you no favor either by send threats to the devs. Treyarch actually took a step in the right direction with this patch its not like you can't quickscope no more its only .02 of a second diff from pre patch.Same way smg players had to deal with nerf after nerf just learn to adapt.
Doesn't seem pointless to me ... I don't have a problem doing it at all on most of the maps, maybe the quick-scopers do but I can hold my breath just fine and get shots all the time. I'm not even talking about holding it as long as I do, I'm just saying make it mandatory (or a accuracy penalty) to press it for just say .1 of a second.
And how many kills do you have with the sniper rifles then?
If you want to get rid of QS then prevent hipfire. It won't go away completely, largely because COD is based on the ancient Q3A engine. Can't wait for Ghosts to come out and hear gamers moan that the "new" game engine still gives them the same old problems.
I find the snipers easy to use. I got the svu gold as my first weapon gold in my second play through of the game after I reset stats. I have prestiged my ballista once this play through too and yet I have used lots of other guns between it during my nearly 6 prestiges. Its not really that hard of a gun to use if a person can aim accurately. The DSR takes a little more skill then the Ballista but sitll not a great deal to get kills with.
dsr minor skill required.
Really they need to add the BO post launch sniper patch plus what they have allready done and completely remove aim assist from the snipers add in bullet drop, and either remove or seriously tone down bullet magnetism. then snipers would actually take skill to use and anyone that could QS with them could claim to have more skill at that point then they currently do in this game as it is.
I find the snipers easy to use.
My experience too. I run snipers on limited occasions in a very similar fashion to the KSG- if you can perform with the KSG the snipers are a cake walk as they are more consistent.
Laser plus CPU and you have a QS death machine that is just short of automatic kills. Even post patch.
The reality in my world is that most attempting to use them are simply not good at the game and the "nerf" puts them at even further disadvantage. Here's an idea: get better at route management, aiming and general play and it will not be a big deal.
