Everyone hates them. You know, those people who run around with sniper rifles in Call of Duty not using them as ranged weapons. Quick-scoping is where players use the extremely generous auto-aim in Call of Duty to pull of easy kills close up. No-scoping is where players just fire point-blank and allow the power for rifle to kill their enemies. These notorious strategies first appeared in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare and has been tormenting players each year.
However, there is a light at the end of the tunnel and its name is Titanfall. Respawn Entertainment’s first project will include snipers, but those hoping to quick-scope or no-scope are out of luck. Posting on the Respawn Forums, a developer revealed that, “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.”
This is certainly good news for fans in general. Respawn Entertainment is comprised of a ton of ex-Infinity Ward employees so quick-scoping and no-scoping could have easily made it into the game. Looks like they’ve learned watching Call of Duty all these years.
Titanfall is out March 11 on Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC.
