Quickscoping 'A Cheap Way To Play'

We Got This Covered reports: “Quickscoping is a cheap way to play”, the words many folks have found themselves saying over the past year of Modern Warfare 2. To hear it coming out rather bluntly from Treyarch’s man Josh Olin is like a getting a $3000 gift card through the post, delivered to you personally by Megan Fox

i couldn't agree more, I'm so happy that the developer agrees

theres nothing wrong with quickscoping, the only people complaining here are the ones who cant do it and its not cheap, i rarely win with the sniper rifle and have an average kill/death while quickscoping. i agree it is sometimes mind boggling how your able to pull it off especially if your on the end of a bullet but its fun. the whole game is cheap not just quickscoping.

Quick scoping is probably one of the easiest things to do in MW2. All you have to do is try it for a couple games then you have it down.

I can do it really well but I really dont think its fun at all. It feels like cheating...

Crystallis3012d ago

What do you mean people cant do it? Do you know how easy it is? Its too east to do and its cheap. Glad Treyarch got rid of it.

Anyone quickscoping puts themselves at a disadvantage against assault rifles, sub machine guns, LMGs and shotguns. Quickscoping isn't cheap, and in a 1 on 1 gun fight the person quickscoping loses 4 out of 5 times. Quickscoping is fun. It's a respite from camping with a sniper rifle or running around like everyone else with their assault rifle, scavenger classes. Players quickscoped in Modern Warfare before there was sleight of hand pro so removing it from the sniping class wont change anything. Player will adjust to the sight speed and still be successful. Treyarch didn't "get rid" of it. If you lose a 1 on 1 gun fight to a quickscoper, blame the game's horrible auto aim or the fact that you as a player have no aim even with a crutch like auto aim. Call of Duty is cheap. Labeling quickscoping cheap is a bit of an oxymoron when the problem is really the game's auto aim. There a number of videos of Black Ops game play with players "quickscoping" and they aren't using sleight of hand pro.

Quickscoping is easy. I hardly ever used a sniper rifle. But one day I notice alot of people were quickscoping, so I decided to try it myself. The first time I try it I got a instant kill. I actually got alot of instant kills. It was easier to do that than to kill someone from long range. I'm sorry, but there is very little skill involve to quickscoping. Its just one of those annoying things in cod. Just like noob tubing.

I can quickscope. Im really good. yet i think it needs to be removed. add me on PSN if u wanna play MW2 before it dies. :D

Crystallis3012d ago

So let me get this straight. If a sniper is running around with his rifle then we meet and there is about 10 feet between us, I'm shooting him with my sub machine gun and all of sudden he kills me with 1 shot kill quick scope. Now who's at a disadvantage here? It unrealistic and cheap, it needs to go.

StanLatMarveldotCom3012d ago (Edited 3012d ago )

Quickscoping isn't the problem, auto aim is. As long as there is auto aim, players will be able to do just that. In Black Ops it will be worse because if I'm using Hardened pro with my sniper rifle, I wont flinch when you shoot me. As long as you're in my crosshairs and I can scope in and pull the trigger, you're dead. In the article above this one, a player quickscopes and shoots a guy in the stomach and kills him with one shot. As long as you're in his crosshair auto aim will take care of the rest, so if you think it's going to stop you're an idiot. Players quickscoped in Modern Warfare without sleight of hand pro.

this is good for everyone, now quickscoping will require more skill and will be a challenge, which will make quicksope kills more satisfying and skillful. On the other hand, it helps us true players who use the gun mechanics properly instead of running around using the sniper riffle as a battle riffle

A videogame unrealistic.....My word. You people crack me up. I do like watching all the people cry over stuff though, grow a set of balls get some skill and improve your gaming IQ. Then you might not have to complain over every little thing that kills you.

We all know theres gonna be people complaining why they take quickscoping out snipers suck etc...when people say that im gonna say welcome to real world.

BloodyNapkin3012d ago

Welcome to the real world, you understand you are talking about a videogame right?

ultramoot3012d ago

I don't have much of a problem with it. If it can be done in-game, then it must be more-or-less allowed. And if a person is skillful enough to go on a killing spree using that, then in all fairness, either patch the game to remove it or let him be.

TheHip143012d ago

it's not a big deal, most people aren't good enough at it to pull it off correctly anyway
