Titanfall: Sniping Confirmed, Quick Scoping & No Scoping Are Ineffective

"Respawn Entertainment's Titanfall may feature huge, hulking Titans that can crush infantry like flies - along with infantry that can scale walls and hijack said Titans - but there are still some conventional FPS mechanics in the game such as sniping."

This game is going to be beautiful

ZodTheRipper1609d ago

I don't think that graphics will be Titanfall's biggest strength ...just like noone calls CoD "beautiful". Gameplay is where it's at.

TekoIie1609d ago

Beauty can come from within :3

sephiroth4201609d ago

lol noone calls CoD beautiful because it looks like shit.

Gekko361609d ago

@All I prefer the phrase "Beauty is only skin deep, but ugly goes right to the feckin bone"

That said the games gonna be great.

nukeitall1609d ago

The gameplay will be beatiful!

Heck, I still think the original StarCraft is beatiful. More beatiful than many games released today!

Graphics is important, game art style is way more important, but most important of all for a game is game play!

You nail that, and you got a customer.

CoD might not look the best (albeit I think it looks rather darn good), it is the experience and game play that keeps me playing and buying every year.

I just beat CoD: Ghost yesterday. Many of the moments was f'in epic!

Debating if I should get BF4 for the campaign, but last I tried it, I was burned so badly I sold the game within days.

pandehz1609d ago

Re-read the statement.

There's no mention of graphics.

MrChow6661609d ago

for me beauty in a game is not about resolution, framerate and that stuff only, its more about good art style, good design..etc

quenomamen1609d ago

Too bad its gameplay is about as fresh as a Foghat concert.

CryofSilence1609d ago (Edited 1609d ago )

I'm still undecided whether I will pick this one up. I love mechs and jet packs and such, but it seems like a reskinned Call of Duty. We'll see. Removing no-scope/quick scope is a move in the right direction.

ramiuk11609d ago

i have just got ghosts for ps4 and im shocked to say i think it looks great and its really smooth gameplay ,better than bf4 anyway for now

1nsomniac1609d ago

Agreed. It's a next gen game running on a decade old engine that is struggling to produce 720p. It's certainly not going to be beautiful!

It sure does look fun though!

Dannycr1609d ago

Well, I call CoD beautiful. When COD2 came out, the D Day stage was incredible at that time and Modern Warfare 1 also looked incredible when it came out.

Graphics are as important as gameplay. We are at a stage in which both things can be achieved at equal greatness.

***"“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.”"***

That is how it should be for ALL shooters period to begin with.

JokesOnYou1609d ago (Edited 1609d ago )

Well call me crazy I own Ryse and think the graphics are truly superb, however I don't think COD Ghosts looks bad at all, it looks fine to me. I think graphics are important but the way some folks say COD looks like garbage just isn't accurate to's like saying well if every game doesn't look like the most impressive graphics games like Ryse, BF4, KZ SF then it must look like crap. That's simply not true.

I don't just mean graphically!

I_am_Batman1609d ago

I sure hope so because the graphics are average at best.

Irishguy951609d ago

Good look sniping in this game. Keeping an enemy in your sights for more than half a second will be a challenge.

AceBlazer131609d ago

Let's be honest some cods try to make quick scoping useless but the userbase figures out a way eventually.

jayswolo1609d ago

None of the CoDs have tbh. If they did, they'd remove the damn near 100% accuracy when you scope in. IW encourages it. Treyarch did the same with BO2.

Ps4Console1609d ago

Yeah to be really honest I bought a Ps4 but this game rocks & it looks certain I'am getting an Xnox one to play this awesome game .

Beastforlifenoob1609d ago

This games is going to be as beutiful as an anus covered in turds.

WTF Is the hype it's basically what black ops 2 should've been

"Titanfall: Sniping Confirmed, Quick Scoping & No Scoping Are Ineffective"

I question this because countless time we have heard both COD developers say they were not making quickscoping viable. Considering that alot of the people who worked at IW now work at Respawn i'll believe it when I see it.

DeadlyFire1605d ago

Indeed. Its not like we won't see a new wave of quick scopers and no scopers appear after they learn the game. I have heard this alot over the years playing FPS games and in every game it still exists.

ZodTheRipper1609d ago

That's good news in my book, stay away from these CoD mechanics.

llMurcielagoll1609d ago

Agreed, quick scoping and no scoping are stupid and ruin the game experience

BX811609d ago

And the gaming community rejoices!

xxxsiegezzz1609d ago

Not if if they require skill to do. Look at cs.

Ps4Console1609d ago (Edited 1609d ago )

Yeah quick scoping is wrong & why would anyone want to play like that anyway no fun is it . Cod is not good game anymore it's been destroyed by hackers & cheats .

Kayant1609d ago

Not surprising it don't seem like the kind of things that would work well in a FPS like titanfall. However, it depends how the sniper works before you completely rule out quick scoping because as long as you zoom in quickly with a sniper quickscoping will exist obviously things like hitbox detection and damage, etc will effect how well that works.

Will be interesting to see how sniper rifles work...

TekoIie1609d ago

Now I'm definitely buying this game! :D

TekoIie1609d ago (Edited 1609d ago )

Wow. People not like that I'm buying the game because there's no quickscoping/no-scoping?

Guess there are a lot of COD fans here :/

Relientk771609d ago

Good that's how every shooter should be

xxxsiegezzz1609d ago (Edited 1609d ago )

You aren't taking my awp away!
