Yeah, you probably wouldn't expect this to appear. Seems like a trivial topic but still worthy of bringing up...
I rather enjoy the ACOG Sight. I have for years. Especially on single-shot rifles. Anyway, I loved that IW and Treyarch decided to completely eliminate sway on the ACOG... except on snipers. It still has a large amount of sway on sniper rifles, and in this game it has more sway than I've ever seen. More than any other title. Why?
I love using ACOG, but to be honest there is ZERO benefit to the attachment even being available for snipers. The accuracy is so unbelievably terrible that there are no pros to outweigh the cons. Sure, for the first time the bullet actually hits the spot that the reticle is floating over, instead of a random point inside the scope, which has never happened until now, but the sway is so uncontrollable that I constantly find myself getting killed first in a firefight because I have to wait for the completely at-random sway to DECIDE to center on an enemy. This is especially painful across even medium distances.
I get this. It is to balance out the snipers so that a pinpoint accurate sight combined with crystal clear peripheral vision and a one-shot kill rifle won't be an overpowering combination, but still, the sight is practically useless at even medium range. There isn't even an ability to hold your breath to steady it. Couldn't we have at least had that ability? It wouldn't be too bad. Even if the sight was, by default, completely pinpoint accurate and have zero sway across all weapons, it wouldn't be that bad. There is also no sway at all on a thermal sight if used on any other weapon besides snipers, but on snipers you can hold your breath. Why not ACOG? I mean seriously? That was a suggestion by the way...
...I know it is probably a long shot. I'm just one guy in a world of people. Why would anyone listen to me? But here is my plea. It wouldn't be too hard to patch the sight so that it was permanently steadied, or had the option to steady by holding breath. It would be a great fix because using the ACOG on a sniper rifle isn't even worth it.
And in my opinion I don't see anything wrong with this suggestion. If anyone replies by saying that the ACOG on sniper rifles is okay and doesn't need any help, I'll be stunned.
Also, a little unrelated side note, I ran into a lobby today full of guys that were invisible and using miniguns. Then a few games later I ran into a Domination lobby with no ending score and the game was running in slow-motion along with the map being dark and orange. It was like the game was frozen in the kind of slow-motion that a MOAB brings before detonation, but it was a constant slow-mo. It was on Stonehaven too so trying to get anywhere was painfully slow.
