Idea for snipers

Snce many complain about quickscoping, ( bare in mind i am not one of them) a potential idea came to me, (also if this has been thought of or explained i did a search and didnt find it) why not have the snipers do less damage the closer a target is, like 20 dam from 1-20 yards 50 from 21-40 yards and full damge from their on out.  I understand thats a ballpark rough number and might have to be coded as a variable depnding on map size.  With this change treyarch could put the quick ads time that MW has on the snipers, so for close engagements a QS'er would have to nail you 2 times for most close engagements and 4-5 at real close..but for standard sniping ranges just once.

     I am thinking quickscoping would be gone if this was the case, forcing players to switch to a sidearm in cqb.  This is just an idea, like i said i have no isses with QS, unless a player is very good at it, i dont see it as a threat, to me a good QS is just as deadly as anyone who is good with any other weapon

 

thanks for reading

    Nope.  They already took away Aim Assist, what else do you want to get rid of to keep handicapping the snipers even more and more to the point it that everyone will be spraying everyone down with SMGs?

      Was just an idea, not a nerf, snipers would still be 1 shot killers jsut not in cqb using a glitch..and i stated i dont care about quick scopers , i kill most of them easily...was just an idea open for discussion

       

      thx for reading

        Your idea is a nerf. That will basically make the sniper rifles unusable. They already don't have aim assist and there are only a few areas on these maps that are 40 yards or greater. If they do this then people will gravitate more to the SMGs and there will be less assortments of weapons used on the field.

          Not if you make large enough maps with good lines of sights that snipers can take advantage of surely?  Well, the LMGs are kinda nerfed in this game so making sniper rifles nerfed wouldn't be anything new.

        What is this glitch that everyone is talking about?  Please show me this.

          I think he is refering to quickscoping as a glitch.

            Yes he is.

             

            Changing QS won't help anything. If one thing people would probably complain more. If you cannot QS someone with one shot at close range there will be probably only one change in the game if it comes to sniping. Grabbing a semi automatic one and spray them down wich most players hate even more.

            • Re: Idea for snipers

              with low damage at close range, they would have to get lucky with multiple shots...by then any compitent player would kill them, they should switch to a sidearm...the only other thing to fix QS is to make it where snipers cant fire till fully zoomed in, and remove hipfire from snipers...i dont care anyway i play HC and there isnt really a QS problem there...i was just seeing the threads alot and figured i woudl chime in

    The reverse damage profile has been suggested before but never used. Because those who QS would threaten to boycot CoD and they make up a large precentage of the buyers so it will never happen.

    • Re: Idea for snipers

      Pffft, like hell they do. They're a minority of the 12 and under demographic that shouldn't be playing this game anyway.

        Actually I am not wrong the sniper nerfes that were than undone back in BO was because of the sniper players boycotting the game after they heard about it. Optic was one of those groups that boycotted the game, and soon afterwards the snipers where slowly unerfed to make QS easier in the game.

  • Re: Idea for snipers

    I think you all need to man up.

     

    Quickscopers put themselves at a disadvantage, and I find them easy kills.

     

    Seriously, if you shed a tear over quickscopers, this game is not for you, go play Neopets or something.

    • Re: Idea for snipers

      Thats true, aside from the few really good ones, QS'ers are easy kills, liek i said i am simply chiming in an idea open to discussion on the topic. Also any really good player, regardless of weapons is gonna be able to kill joe random easy enough

    I completely agree... Why is it a glitcher will get banned for doing a "prestige glitch" but not for "glitchscoping"? it makes no sense to me at all...

     

    90% of the time i get shot by a sniper the crosshair is about a meter away from me...but they get the kill because they drap their scope half way accoss the map? lol.

     

    i Agree with Dragon too..

     

    BUT, i can "Glitchscope" and am pretty good at it, thats why i am in this thread, i like to "glitchscope" but it is TOOOO easy. when BO1 first came out it was AMAZING because you had to learn how to do it all over again.

     

    thats my opinion, but like you said "we wont want OpTic and their fanboys to cry even more"...

    • Re: Idea for snipers

      Lol if its that easy I would love to see a screen shot or short vid of you Beasting in say a FFA game . Shouldn't be hard since its sooo easy ! Lol

        Since you say 90% of the time the guy misses by a meter ?? Lol I don't think you know what your on about ! Stop watching killcams ! They mean nothing !

         I look forward to this awesome game play ;)

    I agree it makes the sniper actually do their job if they want to go CQB use an smg.  A good bitchscoper is near impossible to kill.  While the bad ones still annoying and all but usually you will kill them.
