Hipfiring?

Call of Duty Black Ops II Playstation 3

Hipfiring?

What are your thoughts on hipfiring with or without the Laser Sight? Personally I think it's too easy to go around a whole match and get kills without ever ADSing. In fact, I think it's more accurate and more to your advantage to hipfire rather than ADS on enemies inside 15-20ft (4-5m)

This isn't factoring the Laser Sight though. Add that to any gun and you really don't need to aim, just put the Laser around chest high and spray. The first few shots are always dead center so the winner is rarely who has the better aim but who's gun can spray a wall of bullets faster

I don't think it's that good in this game tbh i do much better hipfire on all the other cods,the laser doesn't seem to make much difference too i thought once they nerfed the smg's it made the laser useless.

I know this is about hipfire but do you think the grip even works i try'd using it on the MSMC & PDW-57 this should give the guns 4 blocks of accuracy witch would put it above the MTAR,but there is no way in hell it's as accurate as the MTAR without grip nvm with it.

There's a video floating around where someone compared the accuracy on weapons with and without the Grip. It was determined that there was 0 difference and the video was very well done. I too have noticed there being no difference

I'm surprised that you say hipfiring isn't that great. I've seen far too many (and I do mean many) people hipfire as their primary means of shooting. Hell, there's times I don't hipfire just to see if I can kill someone without ADSing and most of the time (if not all the time) I do

I like hipfire but just seems it doesn't work as good anymore,so now i find myself ads-ing all the time and i hate doing that when you are running and gunning it's just not effective to ads.

This was done by DriftOr on Youtube. He first said it did nothing but changed that to a very unnoticeable amount of recoil negation.

The Vonderhaar himself commented on it (said it was untrue obviously)

Watch his vids, they are great.

The foregrip is mainly for eliminating recoil while aiming down sights and even without the laser sight, most all the SMGs perform better while hip firing.

I do it all the time mowing people down on KC

Its a legitimate way to fire a weapon, other than a Snipers rifle. A lot of FPS have "hip fire" albiet they have much smaller "deadzones" than COD. So its a lot harder in those games to get a headshot etc.

I started using the laser to complete some challenges and it actually makes the game pretty simple with an SMG.  You can run extended mags, laser, and long barrel and not have to run quick draw or fast mags or any of the accuracy attachments when ADSing.  It basically creates a super class when using lightweight and extreme conditioning.  Pair this with the pdw and it's pretty hard to deal with.

So how do you stop the smg guns pulling up and to the right when ADS-ing i thought the grip was suppose to stop that. I was testing some guns on a wall in private match on a wall the MTAR all the bullets group together i try'd the pdw-57 same distance and with grip and the gun keeps pulling up and to the right.

It's not consistent like the MTAR smgs bullets just land randomly all over the place and i wasn't shooting really far.

if you want to do the head shot challenges for camo i suggest you use the laser and hipfire away lol.

its easier and it registers better then simply ADS and aim.

it actually takes more bullets when you ADS and aim ( no matter distance) then when you just hip fire.
