Black Ops 2 has only just been announced, and twitter is already full of people having a good grumble about Black Ops and “Quickscoping”.
Ever since the “quick scoping” craze took off in MW3 it’s been something children of all ages have been obsessed with and quite frankly it’s something I really, really hate. I personally think that it’s a dumb way to play the game and something that is physically impossible to do in real life and as Treyarch themselves put it “a cheap way to play”.
Since Black Ops was first released in 2010 Treyarch made a statement that left a sour taste in some peoples mouths, when a tweet reply from Olin stated that quick scoping is cheap and won’t be in Black Ops – “No. Quickscoping is a cheap way to play. We’re specifically going to gimp Quickscoping, sorry. Play straight-up!”. I actually praise the fact that Quickscoping was ‘gimped’ and Black Ops was a better game because of it.
So will Quickscoping be added into Black Ops 2? I really hope not, Treyarch try to base their games on reality, and actually trying to Quickscope with an actual rifle in real life, well.. check this video of a Barrett .50 Caliber rifle being fired and watch how much kick back is produced and then let me know if you’d still have a face if you tried to Quickscope that!
So here are a few of the tweets I’ve found where people are having a moan about Quickscoping in Black Ops 2.
