I'm just happy we have the choice to play core or hc, if they put more modes in hc more would play, simple as that. Sniper rifles in core have the power of most weapons in hc so you don't get the QS's as much in hc.I used to be a hc vs core guy but I realized how stupid that is cause both modes require skill to be good at. Many say hc is easier cause you get the kill fast but fail to realize how difficult it is to stay alive! I mainly play hc but I go into core now and then to play objective games and know that I have to play a different way to be any good. Bottom line, both modes will get the best of you unless you adapt.
