Call Of Duty Black Ops Nuketown Sniper Montage

NotActualGameFootage.com presents our first in a series of Black Ops sniper montages. We’ve seen grumblings of how the sniper class is ‘broken’ in the latest Call of Duty, so we decided to show all you bitches and moaners that sniping is alive and well. Please rate comment, subscribe and tell us what you want to see in part 2!

Is this pre or post patch? Sniping in post patch games are just stupid. Now everybody is doing it... it was good as it was.

reply below. First time i've replied on this :)

i know. Ive yet to watch a kill cam of a sniper that didnt just shoot the air next to me and somehow managed to kill me.

That or the "bam *air* bam *air* bam *air but hit* dead" crap.

simonm2534d ago

this was pre so it was 10 x harder than it is now :)

hougigo2534d ago

I see... i hate sniping post patch. Way to go Treyarch, vowing to take away quickscoping by at least making it a little harder. Now they made it so everyone can quick scope. I know i'm ranting, but the amount of people trying to quick scope has increased for me... and it's annoying. Now a bunch of kids get to pretend like they can quick scope, i thought sniping was just fine the way it was.

At least it wasn't as buggy as Medal of honor when it came out :)

Oh shut up, sniping was completely useless pre-patch and had no advantage whatsoever. Besides, it's STILL harder to snipe in Black Ops than it is in ANY OTHER Call of Duty game. People never complained about sniping in CoD4, yet it's WAAAY easier to do in that game.

The people b*tching about the new patch sniper change are either the people who hate sniper rifles and never used or wanted them in the first place and have noticed an increase in getting owned from a distance because it disturbs their run-n-gun infantry man tactics, or people who just plain hate getting killed by sniper rifles.

Change your tactics and stop b*tching, it's still easy as hell to take out snipers, that is if you have even average skill.

Hard to snipe pre patch? I will agree it's harder than other sniping in other COD games, but they made it way to easy to snipe. The damn scope is freaking motionless now when you scope in. Sniping was just fine before, but obviously people such as yourself had trouble with it. I liked how Treyarch wanted to take quick scoping away and make it so sniping was shooting from a distance, but oh well.

"there run-n-gun tactics" umm the game is based upon this, thats why its so "hectic."

I've only seen one solid sniper in the hundreds of games Ive played. There is no "owning" going on. I could pick a sniper class and easily camp somewhere and gets dozens of kills. All you have to do is aim the general direction of someone and shoot, doesnt even have to hit the person just the air around him and he will die.

While still OP, sniping in MOH is more how it should be. Battlefield Bad Company 2 did it nearly perfectly, had the bullet drop and everything, and no one complained.

Fact of the matter is, snipers are there to be distance shooters. Thats not the case in this game, and without a doubt its a noobish perk to the title. Might as well just kill anyone that walks infront of a sniper and tell people that requires skill.

"The damn scope is freaking motionless now when you scope in."

Not really. It still has that zoom in wobble and still sways quite a bit.

""there run-n-gun tactics" umm the game is based upon this, thats why its so "hectic." "

I'm not knocking on the run-n-gun method, just those who ONLY run-n-gun. That shouldn't be all you do in this game, you should try different things.

"I've only seen one solid sniper in the hundreds of games Ive played. There is no "owning" going on."

There is now with the patch. I'm betting that the people that are complaining would like snipers completely taken out of the game.

"All you have to do is aim the general direction of someone and shoot, doesnt even have to hit the person just the air around him and he will die."

That's MW2, not Black Ops. If you're getting kills by hitting the air around the guy, the majority of the time, it's just either you or the other guy lagging. I know it's not completely because of lag and that there is some extra aim assist going on, but the majority of the time it's just lag. I never get those "air shots" you talk about, my crosshair has to be on them all the time for it to even register a hit.

"While still OP, sniping in MOH is more how it should be. Battlefield Bad Company 2 did it nearly perfectly, had the bullet drop and everything, and no one complained."

No, it shouldn't be like that at all, because that's what THOSE games are made for. Call of Duty is made to be a fast paced arcade style shooter, not some tactical bs (there's plenty out there, I don't want all FPSs to be the same like some people).

"Fact of the matter is, snipers are there to be distance shooters. Thats not the case in this game, and without a doubt its a noobish perk to the title."

It still is a distance weapon. I have never quickscoped since the patch, I always shoot from a distance, but before, with that very unrealistic bs zoom in sway, sniping was useless, not to mention that there are only like 2 or 3 maps that are good for sniping.

Sniping should require some skill, but it shouldn't require the huge skill it took to kill someone with it pre-patch. If you're getting killed by quickscopers, that's your fault. In Black Ops, if you cant win a duel with an automatic weapon against a quickscoper, then sorry, but you just suck.

"Sniping was just fine before, but obviously people such as yourself had trouble with it."

It was not fine, it was gimped as hell. The zoom in sway pre-patch was unrealistic and made snipers suck. It's like somebody just punched you in the face while holding the gun and you quickly had to readjust. Not to mention the huge recoil on the L96, it makes it even harder.

If you're seriously complaining about sniping in this arcade style game, then there's no reason you shouldn't also complain about all the other automatic weapons in the game, as they're much easier to run around and get kills with.

There's no real reason to complain about the sniping here unless you expected a completely different style when buying Black Ops, which if you did, you're not very smart. If you want realism, then just play Medal of Honor or Bad Company 2.

vickers5002533d ago

Sniping pre-patch wasn't impossible, but it was too much of a challenge in comparison to everybody elses ability to get kills, and that's what I'm comparing here. When you compare the amount of kills an SMG/Assault/Shotgun user gets to the number of kills a sniper gets, then it's just no comparison, a user with an automatic will win out 9/10 when faced off with a user with a sniper rifle, even if it's at long range (pre-patch).
