JD shoots down Quickscopers

25 Oct

Last night Treyarch’s community manager Josh Olin did another round of #AskJD on Twitter. Basically he took questions from the fans on Twitter and answered a select few. Things got pretty interesting when the question of quickscoping came up.

Now for those who think that quickscoping takes great skill you are sadly mistaken. Quickscoping has flourished  only because of the insane auto-aim of MW2. Had MW2 not sucked quickscoping would not be the problem that it is. I would not find myself blowing the head off a guy in WAW who thinks he can quickscope with the PTRS.

For those who think that hardscopers are “noObs” are lack skill think about a real sniper. Think about how much real skill and patience you must had to be a marksman. Snipers were not meant to used in close range. Could you imagine running around with a sniper in real war and putting the scope halfway up and shooting? The enemy would laugh at you and then blow your face off.

Now before you flip out and say “it’s only a video game” and “it’s not supposed to be real” well quickscoping just goes beyond not real and goes right to ridiculously impossible. Players who scream for realism in this game but still want quickscoping should maybe put down the controller for a bit and do a little military research.

    Aww to hell with them… they’re cry babies. The deal is this: Quick scoping in MW2 basically exploited a bug for the generous auto-aim it granted. With SoH Pro this made it even easier… and many gamers became “pro” because of this.

    Now that said exploit is no longer programmed in the same method as it was in MW2 (seems to be more akin to COD4/WaW quick scoping which is tolerable), those overnight Intervention montage makers are crying foul because it would actually require them to have some sort of skill now.

    Boo-hoo. 😀

    I was thinking the same thing about everything KAIZER SOSA said.

    Now the 10 year olds have to go back to their 1337 MLG 360 headshots!
