This post is not to intended to start another debate on QS.I just want to know why it is in the game. Prior to release it was reported around the net and in a "Game Informer" article that Treyarch had come up with a range of measures to prevent it. So why is it in the game? Were Treyarch pressured by Activision to put it in? The hardcore Blops1 players on my FL were shocked and disappointed to say the least. Not only was QS in the game it is now easier and more common than it has ever been.Most of them have already given up on the game,and the franchise, as a result. People on these forums say it takes skill but it doesn't. I accidently picked up a sniper rifle in game and was Quickscoping a second later. No effort or skill required at all. So does anyone know the answer? Did Treyarch make a deliberate decision to put it back? Was the news that they were removing it a lie? Or is it still an exploit that they simply can't fix?
I don't really see why people whine about quickscoping. Play hardcore, any decent gun is one or 2 hit kill so no reason to quick scope. Problem solved. I rarely see it since I only really play hardcore.
So someone asking a question is "whining" now?
Very condescending, and it says more about you than the OP.
They never said it will be removed. We all know as far back as August that quickscoping will be in the game when Treyarch did the BO2 preview. Faze Wartek was one of the gamers who played and he was quickscoping with the Ballista.
