Call Of Duty Black Ops: Quickscoping has been Banned

By Updated on

You may remember that a gameplay video leaked last week showing off some sniper action in Call of Duty Black Ops, and seemingly showed the player ‘quickscoping’. However, Treyarch has now confirmed that players will not be able to quickscope in the final version of the game.

That footage was taken from the closed beta of the game, but during a Q&A session on Twitter, Treyarch’s community manger Josh Olin answered some direct questions about whether or not quickscoping will be included in the game.

When simply asked if quickscoping will be possible in Black Ops, Olin replied: ”No. Quickscoping is a cheap way to play. We’re specifically going to gimp Quickscoping, sorry. Play straight-up!”

This obviously alerted a few other users reading Olin’s Twitter page and they continued to quiz him about quickscoping. When next asked if he was ‘joking’ about the above comment, he later replied: ”Nope. Quickscoping is way more annoying to a way larger group of people than the quickscoping community who loves to do it. #cheap”.

He later added that players will now need to wait a brief moment until the sniper sight is centered before they take a shot, and confirmed that no sniper rifles in the game are useful for quickscoping.

What are your thoughts on this? There will no doubt be a few of you upset about this, as you may think that quickscoping is a skill and should be allowed if a player takes the time to learn it. Treyarch obviously doesn’t see it that way though and are intending to make the game as fair as possible for everyone.

    Good, makes it more realistic in my view. Would quickscoping be possible in real life? I say no so, another good move Treyarch

    • Torres

      alot other things are not possible in real life are in the game as well,
      tho i do agree quickscoping is cheap on the console,
      it can be made into pure skill by removing the aim-assist on PC
      that is skill,can't deny

    • jacob

      yer becasue cold blooded and commando be realistic?

    • DJK

      They teach us to quickscope in the Military in close quarter combat.

      • SHOCKER77

        Quickscope??what military branch are you Airforce??in close quarters as in the confines of a building you simply “shoot down the barrel” you try and quickscope a 6x leopold scope In the heat of combat you end up disoriented and dead.the time it takes you to orient the rifle, the time it takes your sight to re-adjust to the Zoom lvl your dead.if you miss a person 5meters away just by pointing the barrel center mass maybe you should take to the range more often.

    • HiPNo

      "Another Good Move Treyarch" hahahahahaha.

    • Dan

      Actually it is possible a guy did a 360 quick scope in real life and he did hit a target and he was a football field away from it…

      BTW his Youtube channel is FPSRussia.

      • miketheguy

        i saw that, it was B.A.

    • Adam

      neither is one man army. nuff said

    • JustMe


      • Evan

        Thank YOU someone who has a freaking brain… how bout this make the game as realistic as possible and see how long you will play it????? not more than 2 weeks

        • BasilGoldsack NZ

          Lol agreed, lets make it purely real life, where you only get one life. Ever. And should you happen to die, you can never play again. Because that's realistic for you. Would you like a game like that? And if that's a tad to extreme for you, how 'bout we take out tomohawks, killstreaks, perks, claymore's that are unhostile to teammates, the heads-up-display, early reloads not wasting ammo, respawning in general (and obviously tactical insertions)….. need i go on? What would the game be left with then? That's right, your precious realism. You think Halo (please don't flame me for dropping the H-Bomb lol) sold so many copy's because it's realistic? Lmao, think before you comment buddy.

        • joshua

          i agree this is dumb all you do in black ops now is run around with a mad powerful mechien gun and just spray its so boring and the killcames are just
          so different and the skill level is gone down so all you people that hate quickscoping has mad the game boring

    • IIBenneTT

      fagget, quickscoping is part of COD and it takes real skill… it doesnt have to be realistic, its a game… whats going to happen to the youtube players???? im not buying this game now

    • Quickscoper

      man, fuck you. fuck all of you who think quickscoping is noobish. what about the OpTic clan and their youtube channels? now they have to learn a completely new way to make cool videos. and a commando knife isn't the same thing as a ninja knife, a noob tube kill isn't the same thing as a F2000 kill. A sniper kill is the same as a quickscope kill, so why not get rid of snipers, thats the only way you're gonna stop us.

    • Mike Zam

      How can you say quickscoping is bad? if you want to use the "it's supposed to be realistic" type of approach then use it when there is talk of putting realistic recoil in games, because the only thing unrealistic in quickscoping is dealing with recoil that quickly, and noone wants realistic recoil in games. Plus, AC130s called by regular foot soldiers and nukes as well is very realistic indeed…

      • DJK

        Last I checked AC130's are called by ground troops. Unless an assualt is planned on a target. It's call close air support.

    • jason

      so unlimited noob tubes/claymores everything is more realistic.. riiiiiiiiiight

    • tim

      ok so if it was more realistic would there be perks? last stand? a rc car? car packages? ok what i thought

    • Rohan

      Yeah second chance and chopper gunners and gunships falling from the sky is really realistic

    • justin

      is this real life?

    • viacurbstomp

      would dying then respawning be realistic in real life? no you stupid idiot, its a game, if we wanted realism, we would go do the real thing. stupid asshole.

    • Henry

      this is a video game. it doesnt have to be entirely realistic. all it has to do is be fun. quick scoping has been my favorite way to play the game since cod4. it is the only way that takes skill and you are actually gimping yourself by doing it. it is way harder to quick scope than to camp with assault rifles, which is clearly going to be all that happens in this game. this is because without the perk stopping power, everyone will have no reason not to use the new "ghost" perk and stay stationary the entire game. i agree that quick scoping was far too easy in mw2 with the addition of sleight of hand pro with the ridiculously fast aim down sights. but back in cod4 it was not a problem, it is extremely difficult to quick scope in that game and if they should just go back to that ADS speed. so you are going to take out quick scoping, which takes skill, and keep grenade launches, which you can find spots to shoot straight up and get kills? those are the game's real problems. fix those rather than ruining the game for a huge portion of the community. treyarch will soon find that they will lose a huge portion of their fans.

      • Connor

        Oi fuck head ur a reatard the point of the RC car is to restrict camping and if everyone reads it again quickscoping isnt banned its justharder and requires alot more skill it can still be done theres just a different accuracy point instead of the center of crosshairs.

    • max

      your not getting the point its not reallife. its a game and a game is surposed to be enjoyd andwe can still no scope

    • jack

      its not real life, its a fucking video game you moronic fuck stick

    • Evan

      is there any game that is realistic??? No…. Its a game it shouldnt be realistic you really think that you can jump of the top of a helipad and be perfectly fine???? you will prolly break your leg. but if the game was really like that then it would be boring. do you really think that when you die in real life that your will just respawn? sry but unfortenently you cant do that. so stop with all this it will make the game more realistic…. the more realistic the more boring the game will be

    • Andy

      haha would lunging at somebody like commando happen in real life would you be able to jump off a high building in real life no so thats bollucks ! im sorry JD but you are a cock u have took the only thing that makes the game playable out!! its abit of fun ffs !! the only reason people complain is cuz they cant do it themelves!!! you say its a cheap way to play what and your tellin me tthe ump with marathon lightweight and commando isnt haha and dirty noob tubers!! it bollucks you are a COCK!!!!!

    • ugly man


    • Doodle bob

      Oh so Call of Duty is realistic? I never knew that this was a realistic game. Commando? Juggernaut? Pulling laptops out of no where, getting killstreaks for getting kills? Marathon? You think that this is realistic at all? There are PLENTY of other unrealistic things in CoD. Quick scoping be only one. My guess is the only reason you don't like quick scoping is because you can't do it.

      • fTsBlackRa

        haha pulling laptops out of nowere is a good one

    • MikeyGough

      i 360 quickscoped someone the other day in real life and got a hit marker, I was uber pi**ed.

      • BasilGoldsack NZ

        Lol same, gets so goddam annoying, just like when you're walking down the street and a guy boosts along at 80km/h running, and lunges 30m at you with his knife, stabbing you in the chest, then proceeds to continuously crouch over your dead body. God i hate that, who agrees?

    • GoRiLLa


    • winter0heart

      is quick scoping possible in real life?.. no, is noscoping? no, is the breathing as it should be? nop, is a sniper with a silencer realistic ? no since u can't silence something that goes faster then sound. aiming down sight while standing? eurr if u want ur shoulder broken ? yes. this game can't be realistic for sniping cuz u won't be able to get kills anymore if they would.

    • joshua

      yes but why should we care about how the game is in real life or how it is on the video game?

    • Jon

      Yeah but is being downed by bullets and being revived right after possible in real life? I say no so why should quickscoping be taken out? It is already hard as it is thumbs down Treyarch

    • jjjjjjjjj

      Quick scoping in reallife not possible? Aim and shoot… -_-

    • christiano

      but a tommahawk 1 hit kill is realistic oh also is balistic knife accross the map into my leg a 1 hit kill there is no longer stopping power or fmj so quick scoping should be back!

  • sean

    I am actually reconsidering buying this game as of this post; thumbs down Treyarch:(

    • john


      • dman

        thats just retarded i mean seriously you need to do something unrealistic just for a game to satisfy you?

      • Mike Zam

        go back to 4chan troll.

    • Maskykun

      Ni tu te lo crees… You don't even believe that yourself.

    • Paaauul

      Good, you can stay to MW2 and we will snipe with our scopes up with a higher accuracy percentage ;)

    • chris

      lol dude im with u these little retards cant handle being owned so they just troll the crap out of this and this is call of duty not real life idiots

  • Peanut

    How is quickscoping a cheap way to play? If anything it makes playing the game harder, we will still quickscope in black ops there just isn't a way to stop it. Sorry Tray Arch but it's true you simply can't stop the purist!

    • gg fajjots

      yeah there is, it's called: players who repetitively try to quickscope receive increasingly lengthier bans ranging from five minutes to one day.

    • Jim

      Erm…good luck with that
      "players will now need to wait a brief moment until the sniper sight is centered before they take a shot"

    • nukeworker1

      fuck you bitch its funny when you can shoot a guy by spinning around thirty time aim in your sites be ten feet off the guy and kill him. thats cheating bitch face it you cunt!

      • Evan

        first of all thats a glitch in the killcam you ppl are all dumb you prolly play ps3 thats why you guys suck… you want to take out the thing that takes the most skill to do

    • *****

      Its a glitch in the game, no skill to do it at all….

      • Evan

        play me 1v1 and ill show you how much skill it takes!

      • NightTerror

        lets take a 1v1 then you tell everybody how easy it is to quickscope…fag

    • bob

      yes there is a way to stop it take out snipers

  • xAUSx Scarrface

    Ifkn love you treyarch. Fuck so quickscoping faggots.

  • jron90 on ps3

    i say he is right because i find quick scoping annoying even though i do it ….ex its one thing if your sniping and quickscope a guy of relatively close range and its another when is half way across the map doing it to me that made the game lose some realism points i hope they have flying body parts in this

    • DenverBishop

      ths legit bro i love quick scopin n shit but it might be nice if they put some realistic drop in it like battlefield

    • ShayneGallagher

      so let me get this strait if u kill a guy from across the map hard scoping its fine but if someone quick scopes you across the map its overpowerd how would you even no if there hard scoping or quicks coping unless you watch the killcam and who does that.
      also josh olin just sounds like someone who doesn't no how to quick scope therefore he says that its cheap like seriously why dont you go and try it and see how easy it is go and get some kills from across the map have fun with it!

  • The C4 Epiphany

    Um, quickscoping does not make the game harder. Quickscoping is NOT a skill, either. You're simply relying on the game's AIM ASSIST (Yes, quickscoping morons. The aim assist. Which is a computer controlled aiming device which helps you follow targets.) to fire a powerful weapon at someone. Here's how quick scoping works. Sleight of hand, aim button followed by quick tap of fire button. It is not a skill. So all of you out there who THINK that you're a "REALLY GOOD SNIPER CUZ I CAN HAS QUICKSCOPE :3" the software is doing the playing for you. Also, down with Infinity Ward, who made a very unstable game moddable on consoles. Garbage, absolute Garbage. Unfortunately it's i or BF; as far as community numbers go for me. Fortunately IT IS GOING IN THE GARBAGE CAN, WHEN BLACK OPS IS RELEASED.

    • Andrew

      pc doesn't have aim assist. what do you say to the quickscopers on pc then?

    • VanDamn

      Wow finally someone that understands… I've been telling people that ever since the COD4 days and they still thought they were the reason they were getting kills. Aim Assist is the reason quick scoping works. If they take out the magnetism that makes you lock on a player when you shoot you will miss when quickscoping.

    • JustMe

      Sorry matey, I quickscope withouth aim assist. Eat My Skill Bro'.

    • Alex

      thats actually not true entirely. the aim is assisted to a certain point but that is only a very small amount and would in no way assist in quickscoping. just sayin.

    • Matt

      you are wrong by the way :). first off, it is harder to miss a shot than make it, trust, it took a year of practice…. also, the auto-aim with the left trigger only works in single player DUMBASS, also, getting "sniped across the map" THE AUTO-AIM DOESNT EVEN WORK FAR AWAY RETARD!!!!!! GET YOU FUCKING FACTS RIGHT BEFORE YOU SAY SHIT!!!!!!!!!! TRUST ME MAN, I GO TO COLLEGE FOR MAKING VIDEO GAMES, I UNDERSTAND HOW THIS GAME WORKS 100% AND YOU ARE WRONG.

    • Your Stupid

      Why would they make a game with only aim assists on snipers, that would just ruin everything. There is an aim assist with every gun that you use in Call of Duty. Oh yeah, and its called Aim 'ASSIST' it is only supposed to help you, not guide every single shot you take.

    • austin

      the aim assist should actually be called sticky aim… it doesn't snap on to the target, it just holds aim on someone for just half a second longer, and the sniper isn't the only gun with the sticky aim. i don't think thats a legitimate argument.

    • DaVam

      Thats not true, the day i got MW2 i turned off the aim assist, and i am still still go positive quickscoping nearly every time. Quickscoping you basically can fire 1 shot every 3 seconds or so, any fully auto can kill in less than that, with marathon on which I use, bullets can kill faster the the scope can go in.

    • DenverBishop

      Yur a f**** stupid a** no life f*** tht is so bad he acts like the one thng tht actually take any skill at all in call of duty is aim assist yur a moron id like to see yu do anything good relating to quickscopign therz a reason when people 1v1 itz quick scoping cuz it actually take sme skill i hope u die in ur sleep

    • Evan

      you are an idiot. obviously you know nothing about quickscoping. if it was all aim assisted then everyone would be able to quickscope. only a select few of people and hit a shot 95% of the time. i quickscope and i cant do that. but i should be able too if quicscoping is a easy as you say it is. but its not that easy. so based on what your saying you know nothing about the call of duty games.

    • xQuickSCoPerx

      man… is not auto aim… try to quickscope, is not takes time to learn , its not something that you do all the time with 100% accuracy.

      NOOBTUBE yeah thats is cheap!

    • woooow treyarch

      All weapons have aim assist, would they all be noob then? PC gamers dont even have aim assist. You can turn off aim assist, but i bet you never play without it so dont complain about quickscoping

      • This-guy-and-his-friends

        I play with aim assist turned OFF and sticky aim is still there. Quickscoping is mostly assisted aim, and what isn’t is closer ranges. Quickscoping is not “skillful” nor is it “easy” quickscoping is an exploit in the game’s aiming system, which few people pick up on and use. It is reasonably useful at closer ranges(I’d say I hit 65% of my shots) and in black ops, so far, my battles against “quickscopers” at long ranges end with me killing them with a chest shot. This is because I actually snipe, and I don’t “quickscope” unless it’s a close shot. Quickscoping is a close range tactic in black ops, so Get your facts straight, and step yo’ game up.

    • JoJo

      you're an idiot, i quickscope in both cod4 & mw2, the aim assist does not pull the scope towards anyone.. if it did my accuracy would be 100% instead of 58%.. however, when i was a n00b running around with my AUG i often found this aim assist pulling my view towards people i hadn't even seen, how is that fair? also take into account the RIDICULOUS amount of hitmarkers we get when quickscoping, it's a skill, deal with it.

    • JD_2020 likes boys

      your an idiot, if the aim assist was that good you might as well just call it aimbot. your just an idiot that sucks at the game. go on youtube, competitive snipers quickscope as a TOOL. And i dont know if you noticed but mw2 was the first game that had faster ADS. what about cod4 or even WaW? and if quickscoping was that easy, then there wouldnt be a competive playing category for it.

    • ShayneGallagher

      lol you do know you can quick scope in BF its just as easy so dont say that it takes no skill when u can do it in BF and that is supposedly the hardest game to snipe in

    • Coolstorybrah

      I lolgiggled at this.

      Stupid arguement is stupid, PC has no aim assist in multiplayer.
      Believe me, if it did, I'd hit alot more times.

  • Zolidium

    Quckscoping is no better than a noob tuber if you ask me :) If you wanna snipe, then snipe how a sniper would I mean come on…get your kills using the scope, that's what they are designed for lol

    • DJK

      Noob tubing is more realistic in military terms, the only thing not realistic about noob tubing is they only give you two rounds of 40MM and the kill radius is not 5 meters as it would be in reality.

    • CODisSHiTE

      Then you would bitch about camping. I never understood that. Idiots.

    • Matt

      just saying… EVERY QUICKSCOPER OUT THERE DOES WAAAAYYYY BETTER HARD SCOPING. hard scoping isn't hard… and when you players see that, you will WISH THAT WE START QUICKSCOPING AGAIN.

      • pas

        Lmao ur stupid. Hard scoping take more skill then qsen. But well ur so blind that u can't even see it. Ur probaly a kid just watching all those movies from predator or someone else. You've got to set-up a sniper for a shot. No in mw2 it is possible to just watch 1 sec and shoot. Thats llike hoping u will hit after 100 shots because evrything is finally right for the shot. L2p kiddo

  • Senelle

    Its alright saying Snipe how a Sniper would in real life… But when someone does do that, they get branded a camper!

    • VanDamn

      I rather deal with campers than quick scopers

    • Shos

      I think it all depends on your own definition of camper. Sure a sniper "camps" to get kills but that's in the nature. I, along with a couple of friends, only consider someone camping if they are using a gun other than a sniper.

      • Gunrunner

        I fully agree – and besides, I have such fun hunting camping snipers on WaW; it really adds to the sport of the game :)

    • Alias Unknown

      In my opinion. Your only a camper if you sit and watch like a doorway or a set of stairs with a shotgun. THATS camping. Sniping is sniping, camping is bullshit. Haha

      • This-guy-and-his-friends

        Camping: sitting in one spot racking up kills
        Sniping: sitting in one spot to fire two/three shots, then getting the fuck out of dodge before someone raids your spot with an smg

  • excellent

    I'm glad Treyarch is fixing this issue so that sniper rifles will fill the role they were meant to fill. Quick scoping turns a sniper rifle into a rail gun. This isn't quake.

    • tim

      this isnt battlefield

      • This-guy-and-his-friends

        Battlefield is where you go when quickscopers annoy you.

  • yuppies

    quickscoping is a glitch in the game i agree QS is no better than commando and noob tubing any 1 can do it and it's plain cheap thank you so much trayarch i know many getting this game for sure it's gonna be what mwf2 should of been now it's the anti mwf2

    • BasilGoldsack NZ

      Lol, yet another kid who wishes he could quick scope, but can't, so has a cry.
      Dude, if anyone can do it, why does it see more professional youtube montages than any other form of play? When's the last time you saw a really good, engrossing montage of a guy being 'UB3R H@X' with a UMP? Personally, I have never, ever, ever, been in a game where people have actually COMPLAINED about an enemy quickscoping, sure, they can say "dammit, he killed me when i was one off an AC130, gaaah", but I have yet to hear someone shout "omfg wtf bull**** ******* quickscope learn to play ***". How many times have we heard people scream that about a noob tube or running class/tactical knife? Exactly.

      • This-guy-and-his-friends

        Now, I’m not here to complain, troll, or otherwise be negative, but if I was to be killed by any of the aforementioned tactics, quickscoping included, I would be slightly irritated. In fact a few of the people I play with have bit*hed out quickscopers over the microphone. It gets annoying.

  • CEtreyarch

    We have decided to remove quickscoping as it gives an unrealistic advantage to many players, we have recieved many complaints about this feature and have therefore decided to remove it.

    • Jr7

      Noob tubing is worst though. Send me emails plz treyarch to because i want to get liitle more details. Plz. Not a trash talker. I just want some answers.

    • Jr7

      why treyarch

    • Davam

      It is only an advantage if you take the time and effort to practice lining up your shots, and to call something anyone has the right and ability to do an "advantage" does not make sense to me. I understand the realism aspect, but I know that there are a lot of people who really like quick scoping, and some, like myself, think it is the only way I can enjoy the game. I would really appreciate at least make this new scope in feature an option in private matches, then at least people could still hold private quickscope matches with friends.

      • Rungunner

        Ugh. Just keep playing MW2 so the rest of us can enjoy a game with more depth to it than Quickscope mastery. Zeus forbid you actually get to fairly play a style involving a gun other than the sniper rifle…

      • Trevon

        i agree wit davam quick scoping what made cod fun to me without it i get bored real quick u coulve at least took out noob toobing like people are going to find a way to noob toob aross the map

    • guest

      so you dident have complants about tactical inserts or crap perks

      • Jr7

        I understand they are trying to make it more realistic. Its just noob tubing takes no skill. They should at least take reduce the explosive damage and take out danger close.

        • Cailer

          They had complaints about crap perks and tact inserts. no jugg and no stopping power or one man army or commando in Black Ops. Tact inserts if u have boosters u use the theatre mode and report them they already said that. As for the noob tube they are making it so scavanger doesnt replenish noob tubes so each life you will only have 2 noob tube shots(unless you pick up someone elses) so people wont be able to non stop noob tube.

    • Evan

      you have decided to remove it for your benefit and make the game easier for people. you underestimate the quickscoping community. would you agree that making a new game should be fun for everyone??? if your taking out quickscoping then take out every gun in the game then….. cuz not everyone likes to put their skills to a challenge like we do and go against 6 ppl in a serach and destroy game were we have 6 shots to kill the other player but they have 180 bullets??? your taking out something that is difficult to do not something like using one man army pro and noob tubing all the time. how dare anyone compare quickscoping to noob tubing its not anywhere near the skill of quickscoping. unless you are pro piping which takes some skill

      • Craig

        first off you treat this like Treyarch just killed somebody.Its just a game and thats the way they want you to play it. Personally I am happy they are getting rid of quickscoping its annoying and most of the time quickscopers screw up your team by ruining the score with a 5-20 k/d. Second off if you go pro anything in a videogame you're a loser

        • Evan

          why cuz they are good at a game??? its like if someone went pro at basketball the only difference is basketball takes physcial ability but no matter what they still prcatice the game as much as someone does basketball. so you have this preconceived notion on what life is and how everyone should live it. So if you think someone is a loser because they are a professional gamer then you are a close minded Retard. When you make a game its supposed to be able to let the play play how he wasnts to play and to take something out that actually takes skill and practice to do, is stupid.

    • Pimmim

      Please make à patch removing THE killcam ( escape THE round or game winning one) as it takes away the reason for sniping and using ghost and such perks aswell as silencers, because it blows away tour stealth, and aswell improve sniper bullet damage

    • john

      …ur company is an aboslute joke mate…. how dare you tell me how i can and cannot play a game that i payed for with my hard earned money…im not even gonna get started.

    • Tony

      This is just BS trey arch is just digging themselves a hole. No one is gonna want to buy this game Quick scoping is fun people like to do it? i didn't see you guys fix Mp40 jug but that was OP your ruining the game more than you morons think your ignoring what the community wants quick scoping isn't a god weapon. It takes practice to quick scope.

  • TheOtherSide

    Haha really? All aim assist? Ok tell me why me and my friends can quickscope effectively during a private match while we are on the same team with friendly fire on? Sorry there's no aim assist there.

    In regards to this news, it's not that big of a deal for me. Quickscoping was just a side thing that I did and isn't what I play the game for. I'm glad because it gets rid of all the damn whiners that complain when someone uses the sniper rifle the same way. I view quickscoping as something that's fun to do, not a way to play.

    • thr33

      yea dude with friendly fire off you can actually aim assist on your own team quickscopeing is just a copout for people to use the sniper rifle close range for an easy kill

    • RDT

      U mad bro?

    • Sniper_on_cod7

      I'll tell you why you can on a private match, you edit the perk "Steady aim pro" So the spread is 5%, which makes your crosshairs less spread apart, you're basicly noscoping someone in a private match. Stupid kid, we know how to edit perks from the private match.

    Jeez people saying it make the game more realistic are u stupid!? Its COD were ppl run around getting shot lots of times and not dieing and getting perks and respawning after you DIE it couldnt be more unrealistic!! And if ppl wanna quickscope let them it shouldnt be completely removed im sure everyone would rather the noob tube be removed over quickscoping. Im sure everyone on xbox live will have to change there names from 'XxiQuickScopeZzxX' anyway YAY!

    • DJK

      In the desert I carried an M203 – Noob toob, and if need be when there was a grouping or dead space I would use it. More realistic than being able to bring up a 50 cal and fire.

      • That guy

        But this is a game not real life!

    • max

      very true

    • DenverBishop

      guess wht DJk ur a looser a** war veteran tht shudnt even be playing cod Gtfo

    • Guest

      Denver you're the typical disrespectful tool who barely has the right to breathe. Gtfo.

  • tioN

    the people who think this is a good idea are the people who dont have the skill too quickscope, quickscoping isnt just something you unlock. its a skill acquired from practice basically what this retard is doing is saying that all the time and effort his customers have put into becoming more skilled in his games mean nothing to him. which means he doesnt care about his sales which tells me that buying the product would be pointless why give a person who doesnt give 2 shits about your entertainment money. i personally think that this moron cant quickscope or just is a rq'r @ quickscopers

    • VanDamn

      quickscoping is the aim assist locking you aim on a certain player for a fraction of a second and when you pull the trigger right after you lock on you get a kill. I can do it and it really is not skill in any way… get over it its the game programing giving you kills. If the game isnt programmed to do it, it will not work!!

      • XxXQuickDemonXxX

        no it isn't .. lets take a 1v1 to see if your aim assist will play for u.

    • ThisGuy

      @ tioN: Shut the fuck up, asstard. Quickscoping utilizes the aim assist when quickly pressing the aim and fire button. The "skill" of quickscoping is practically nothing at all.
      Suck a dick and get the fuck out.

    • isoLATED

      i CAN quickscope and it was annoying even to do it myself. Snipers are long range. They should stay that way and not become an excessively powerful close range gun. I agree that it is a skill that takes practice, but hey, now you dont have to waste your time in private matches honing a skill that doesnt make you look any cooler in the game. Sorry….sucks for you i guess. Too bad you are not the 80% of people that despise that cheap little trick.

    • MattrickBT

      "the people who think this is a good idea are the people who dont have the skill too quickscope"

      Yes, That is why seven year olds that can barely piss standing up can do it. Quickscoping is a skill like tac knifing is a skill…it isn't.

      • BasilGoldsack NZ

        Riiiiiiiiight…… because quickscoping, which is essentially an 'if you miss, you're dead' moment at close-to-medium range, takes less skill than a fully automatic. Where it is simply "Pull trigger to aim. Pull trigger to shoot. Wait for kill." Try telling me that requires more skill. I admit, I quickscope, and found it much easier to do on MW2 compared to WaW and Cod4, but please, you think fully automatics require more skill? Shotguns, even? The thing about video games is that any "seven year old that can barely piss standing up" can play them. It takes people with skill to actually be half decent at them. You try standing up to a marathon/lightweight/Spas-12 with a quickscoping class, and tell me a "seven year old that can barely piss standing up" will come off best.

    • Sniper_on_Cod7

      I can quickscope too! Lookee here!, "Ok let me just l1, then r1"! "Aim then shoot" BUT I'LL DO IT VERY FAST with a SNIPER RIFLE to make it look cool :)

  • I now love Treyarch

    Quick scoping is dumb and in no way realistic. I'm glad Treyarch is taking it out. There have been countless times where I've come across little kids losing game after game because of quick scoping. Looks like people are actually going to have to learn how to play.

    • QSer(Try-Hards Ftl.)

      Alright, so you're saying you want a realistic game? Take out respawn system, how about that? Take out regular game modes and every game mode is hard core, how about that? Take out health recovery, how about that? Make it so when you get shot, you bleed to death, how about that? How about when you jump off a roof, you don't only get hurt, you lose a leg. How about that? How about removing the perks? Be smart, QSing IS in fact a skill, if you think it's something done by shooting randomly, you're incredibly wrong. I have nothing against the removal of QSing, I for one, will still purchase the game even though QSing is removed. I don't mind it's removed. Just know that don't say something without thinking it through on the other side. Yeah you get pissed cause you got QSed across the map. Guess what? You're not mad cause it's unrealistic, you're mad, because the hardest thing to do has been done unto you. Get real. Stop complaining about QSing.

      • Cailer

        The hardest thing to do? LMFAO after reading most of these i threw on slight of hand and a sniper and went online and first time ever trying QS went 22 to 3. It's NOT a skill.

        • miketheguy

          where you curled up in a ball on one of the corners of the map. how bout you try running and gunning with a sniper

    • Evan

      wtf are you talking about? anyone can play how they want people just complain because they suck and they always die. people who always get raped by quickscopers so they hate quickscopers. people who get raper by reg guns they call them tryhards. if people are complaining this much about a game maybe they should play something else because obviously they cant get the hang of COD. Just stop complaining and let people play they want to play

    • QS for Challenge

      It may be unrealistic, but how would that effect you? It is a skill in the game that makes it harder and more entertaining for people who have become bored with the automatic guns that are extremely easy to use. Also it is no way cheap at all considering that you are stating that you come accross people who lose many games in a row trying to have a challenge than win ever match they go into using a much easier gun.

    • dfsdfdsa

      its simply destroying cool videos and half of the sniping community out there. u happy now?

  • carlfanizza



    • Evan

      play me 1v1 quickscoping if it takes not skill then moron. ill win everytime. is that because the aim assist likes me more

    • Satanas

      Evan is right …. is not about aim assist.
      i am challenging every body that says that quickscope is cheap to a 1v1

      dont cry when i 360º quickscope u in the ass…

    • XHolyHeadShotX PS3

      dude… ok think of this.. you go on youtube and what do you see for black ops…. "most amazing knife killl? not throwing knife…. snipers were everthing for youtube… and if you take that away theres going to be more campers, noobtubers gay crap like that…. and what is optic going to do…. go try hard….?

  • Jai

    that i think would be a bad move for the game since quickscoping has been around for so long ! now take that away and what you have left.. noobtubers…campers..overpowered weapons..glitchers..hackers.. mlc knifers etc.. thanks treyarch ur full of it… atleast quickscoping was good gameplay to watch… now everyone will be stuck watchin the mess you made instead

    • Angel

      First of all there is not stopping power,glitches always get fixed and you know you will buy the game anyways so stfu!!

    • DenverBishop

      bro u make some sense and angel shutup before i kill u in ur slip

  • burge

    yes finally! im a rather good cid player and yes i can quick scope and yes its the most boring thing in the world. all they need to do is lag the sniper rifles out from aiming to shooting and no more quickscoping. i hate snipers anyways and when i have a go with a sniper rifle, its far to easy i can pritty much always get a streak. quickscoping doesnt take any skill. from watchin a video i could copy it in minitues and it is unbeatable. now to sort out spamming grenade launchers and rpgs. lol

    • baggins

      I am not quite sure what cid is, but if you think your so good at quick scoping then challenge me I shall beat you in 1v1 user names robo2345.

    • BasilGoldsack NZ

      Unbeatable?…… Right, that's why every quickscoper laughs in the face of a Spas-12 running class. or people camping where only their head is visible, AK-47 poking over the top. Or a noob-tube from any distance. Quickscoping is a skill, as many other things in CoD are (if you're half decent at the game) and as such, it has it's counters. FFS, I have never heard of people, ever, ever, complain about quickscoping being 'far too uber h@x'. When's the last time you heard a Spas-12'er cry because they got pwned, over and over again, at close range, by an intervention?

  • ugh

    i'd rather have quickscoping than last chance or tac insertions, but whatever still looking forward to blackops

  • liam

    Wait so noobtubing isn't removed at all whilst quickscoping which takes some skills is removed completely. Pretty mch killed the game if you ask me

    • ShaggiApple

      I think there is going to be a delay of noobtoobing once a match begins.
      Plus that and no OMA, what more is there to complain about?

      • scott

        no SH$T! I would rather someone Quickscope me because it means that I am in a visible area and it takes some sort of skill to achive. GET RID OF NUBE TUBING! To me it has almost ruined my online game play. It has become more rampant in the final weeks of COD Modern and almost so bad that I quit playing. It take ABSOLUTELY NO SKILL to run around and blast people with a grenade. I play a lot of hard core and it even carried into their. No skill at all.

        What is funny is that people that nube tube don';t even score that well, and i generally do better than them but it just makes the game no fun. And for us k/d concious people it stats to mess up our ratios that we work so hard to achive with skillfull tachtical play.

    • XboxGuy

      M203 are real- they are used in real combat– they are designed to take out a group of people at once- stop complaining about Grenade Launchers. its WAR, silly goose

  • Carpus

    All you need to do now is get rid of all perks and CoD will be about skill more again.
    It will never happen though.
    CoD is dead in my eyes.

    • aydin

      finally someone with brains!
      cod is better when it's more simple, less perks, less bulllshit, and involves more skill!

      • Alias Unknown

        C'mon, its fucking Call of Duty, Aim and Fire, thats it. It isnt exactly the most skill oriented game out there. I think players should like get bonuses if they play a match with no perks.

  • Nuggeh

    The people here arguing the quickscoping is wrong simply because "uh oh its so easy to quickscope, it requires no skills at all" are mentally retarded.
    Quickscoping (on PC atleast) requires alot more skill than running around with a SMG or an assault rifle easily taking down the enemies with the retardedly low recoil the CoD games have.
    Quickscoping requires alot more reflexes and precision, as you only get one chance to kill the enemy(close range that is), before having to change to ure secondary.
    Also, most of the people who quickscope in the cod series does it to get more of a challenge playing the game. If you guys think that quickscoping is overpowered or in any way easier than running around with a std machinegun, ur retarded. If you place a UMP45 in the hands of a skilled quickscoper, and a guy whining about quickscoping being overpowered, its 100% sure that the quickscoper will get ALOT more kills with the UMP45 than he would with the lets say intervention.

    - I will definativly NOT but BO if quickscoping is gimped as much as Treyarch threatens to do.

    • terry

      lol i would love to see u run about in real life and qs m8 see how long u would last all off 2 seconeds now thats retarded were as u do see the real army run about in formation with an ak or ump going about shooting people here is an idea search up sniper and see wat comes up lol

      • Jake

        ur sooo dumb its not supposed to be realistic its an arcade shooter go play operation flashpoint or arma2 or something if u want realistic

      • DenverBishop

        i wud luv to see you run up to a guy and knife him 20ft awaY Smd

      • ur a dipshit

        woah rly u cant quickscope in real life i didnt know that….stfu u retard….its a game which is meant to be played for fun…this isnt a war simulation game developed by the military its a game developed for 12 year old squeakers to play…..

      • BasilGoldsack NZ

        Lol, I would love to see you play CoD even remotely realistic, where if you get shot in a decent location you bleed to death, and then that's it. You don't respawn. Ever. Might as well throw the game in the trash, your one life is gone. Realistic enough for you? Oh, and if you want realistic, try firing your precious AK-47 with the trigger HELD DOWN whilst standing up. It's possible in CoD, so it must be completely realistic, right? Send me a postcard from hospital when your shoulder's torn to shreds.

    • Darkness

      Thank you for your comment. Now everyone here can see who is truly retarded (yourself if you didn't know). quick scoping uses the help of AIM ASSIST (had to put it in caps because of your mental state). There is no skill in it. Taking this crap out along with commando, unlimited sprint, and one man army made this game so much better. I won't mind noobtubes much either since theres no danger close. So please don't get this game nugget because that would be easy kills for the rest of us

      • Jake

        so what if its aim assist its the way quickscopers use it like in competitive with all the clans out there and the sniping community treyarch is losing alot of support and buyers just look at the subscribers to optic or xgen its a big thing we can still black scope which has no aim assist but u dont know wat that is so quit ur bitching and even if u can quickscope u wont have the skills some other players have it does take practice just lettin u know

        • Darkness

          lol Who does this little man Jake think hes taking to? Unlike you, trey actually listens to people. Josh Olin clearly stated that more people are against quick scoping then for. So they most likely they gained more support then lost. I don't quick scope and never will. Thank you. Have a nice day

      • dmorgz

        quickscoping ia in no way just aim assist… took me months to become a great quickscoper from scratch….i wanna see u quickscope as good as ireapzz….u cant cuz she has skill….that isnt aim assist that is pure skill

      • BasilGoldsack NZ

        Aim Assist…. So, what you're saying is we can pull trigger to aim and pull trigger to shoot and kill is 100% guaranteed? Good luck simply using that tactic. And lol, no skill? So, you're saying that assault rifles and SMG's require faaaar more skill to use? Where you pull the trigger to aim (and of course, you're looking through far more than a zoomed-in central circle surrounded by black) and HOLD the trigger until your opponent dies? Yeah, THAT requires skill. Far more than quickscoping.

    • lulz

      You sure got told by Treyarch.

    • chris

      nuggeh is right and all you little cry babies out there are retards first off quickscoping hardly uses aim assist and people who say it do probably dont even know what quickscoping is. second people who think this should be taken out because it is not realistic are retards. do you see soldiers running around chucking tomahawks at people? do you think the army would send you a box with a minigun in it if you get 5 kills? i didnt think so.

    • ADRIAN


      • DenverBishop

        nice bro

    • dog

      my 8 year old can do it with no problem on ps3 and computer

  • Awesome Face

    Yes, Senelle's right- that's the major problem with COD (not just Black Ops)- people who use more intelligent, tactical fighting (eg. Sniping) the players that just run n' gun slag you off, report you even- sadly, COD's not really a tactical game at the minute. Hopefully this is fixed now. Good going Treyarch!

    • jh2492

      'intelligent, tactical fighting'…complete and utter boll*cks!! your a camper- which requires abs no intelligence or skill so stop kidding yourself and learn how to play the game the way it should be played

    • jh2492

      your a camper. end of! its people like you who ruin the game

  • ahartert

    i think this is stupid. there is already a huge community behind quick scoping. Clans base their identity behind it. There are competitive sniping website for quick scoping. I can understand slowing down the scope in period to how it was in COD 4, but to take it out completely? That is just absurd. For those that say it need to be taken out because it isn't realistic, its a video game. There are many other parts of this game that are not realistic. For example last stand, you put enough damage to kill someone but they have a second change and can be revived by any teammate? that is realistic. Kill streaks, killing a certain amount of people and receive a reward in a UAV, care package or dogs, that is realistic. Getting a hitmarker with a sniper rifle. You can go as far as saying the spawn system is not realistic. But to address quickscoping OVER noob toobs or last stand is not right.

    • DenverBishop

      i love you

    • Cole

      Finally someone who isn't a noob lol. Thumbs up

    • Dan

      100% AGREEMENT

    • his

      Fine if you want to do quick scopes then keep playing modern warfare 2 retard

    • BasilGoldsack NZ

      Lol, at last, someone who actually understands the absurdity of the quickscope removal, and enough smarts to actually write an articulate response to it. You took the words right out of my mouth (if that makes sense in a blog context, lol). And in response to *his*, you're calling us retards for still playing mw2 for quickscopes? Lol, so you're saying that mw2 has now become totally obsolete now that Black Ops is out, and that we should all throw it in the trash on release day? If im not mistaken, people still play CoD4, and how longs that been out?

    • cobras71396

      in real war there isnt any respawns…there could be the chance of second chance in real life if you dont shoot the person engough and there is a medic around. UAVs do exist…its called a predator spyplane it is unmanned and wirelessly controlled. there are blackbirds in real life and carepackages do exisat as well as dogs even though you sont call in a huuge mob of attack dogs they use dogs to watch over camps and to smell out bombs and other weaponry….but good point to an extent

    • dog

      so it's not realistic to be on the ground before you die . and quick scoping is realistic !!!

  • Josh

    As long as there are snipers with scopes in this game, people will still quickscope, whether it does jack sh*t or not, they will.

    • Cod gamer

      yeah i dont think quikscoping will ever die

    • dual optic

      dude you are awsome thats how i feel

  • Quickscoper tears QQ

    Awwww look at the auto aim sniper noobs cry :(
    It was a smart business move for Treyarch a lot more people hate QSers than people that do it. so it will help sales as well.

    I'm happy.
    and quick scoping is easy as hell.
    I used to do it a lot and I got way to bored with the simplicity of it.

    QQ some more little boys… do some homework.

    F**k Bags

    • Jake

      but ur not good at it u dont seem to understand that it does take skill yah u may get a few kills with it but if ur in a 4v4 against quickscopers that actually played like Ns Owtlaw or ExXstacY than u would get demolished because they practice and it makes them a lot better than u plaus u have to get the timing down for u to actually get a long shot so stop crying over quickscopers when u can easily kill them with ur ump of assault rifle

    • Cockinurmouth

      Proof or it never happened >:)

    • StarkHD

      Please explain how is this going to help sells? people who don't quickscope would ave got the game regardless if there was quickscoping or not…now the people who DO quickscope and i estimate that there is around 500,000+ people who do…WON'T buy the game
      Good going Treyarch… just love making Infinity ward look good

  • aLEX

    everyone who is saying quickscoping is cheap just says it because theyre bad at it themselves. Its not cheap in afact i think this new idea is going to turn a lot of people away from the community. Thanks Treyarch, cod 4 here i come

    • waka

      haha have fun with cod, i gaurantee you buy black ops cause the old games are gonna be boring.. quickscoping takes no skill whatsoever the deal is done there is nothing you cry baby can do so get over it.. all quickscopers lose this vote by a billion to one hahaha noob

      • Bad Kid

        Treyarch had a vote if quickscoping is cheap and everyone said no and they ended the poll.. What does that say about your a billion to one?

    • Not buying this game

      Same, CoD 4 is the best CoD game to ever come out.
      Fuck Treyarch.

      • Kevin

        i agree with waka. 20$ says you two dorks get the game anyway and try to quickscope

  • Patrick

    This seems kind of dumb to me. Calling quickscoping cheap is fair enough because even though i love using it i have to admit it isnt very skillful. But taking it out and then bringing back second chance but with any teammate being able to revive is way WAY WAY cheaper than quickscoping. The m16 is also in this again which doesnt seem much more skillful than quickscoping (id say its alot less skillful imo) a better version of last stand? Seriously? I think it should of been taken out of cod4 never mind it being put in 3 more games and made better

    • dueller

      m16=assault rife not sniper

  • terry

    good there is no such thing as quickscoping in real life you would not see a sniper running about trying to quickscoping people the idea off a sniper is to hide and consentrate they ruined mw2 for that trench yard ya doing good now get rid off the tactical inserstion so we can stop the boosters

    • alex

      I respect your opinion but I myself think that if video games were realistic than they would not be very fun at all. there are many examples of cod not being realistic, you can go right down to saying respawning is not realistic but they cant really take that out of the game can they.

    • Wow

      Is Call of Duty real life? Hell no retard.

  • Piemaster1337

    10 yr olds say: :( now all my time on mw2 is just a big waste if i go to black ops, and i'll need to actually use a GUN
    Good people say: thank you, finally, no idiots running around spinning, shooting, then getting raped by 5 people during a S&D match

  • Max

    Treyarch are losing a big community doing this. Olin says quickscoping is cheap, but has left noob tubes in the game?! Quickscoping takes alot of skill to master, and is much harder than using any other full-auto weapon. Bad move Treyarch.

    • dueller

      Good move Treyarch! (no sarcasm)

  • Parsons

    Quickscoping is for losers, people who just quick aim and shoot are boring where is the skill??? no Skill,, and the difference between quickscopers and camping is that camping would happen in the real world its called holding a strong hold, i dont camp but its a challenge to get the campers….quickscoping dumb!

    And this numpty above me saying quickscoping is hard needs to get his head checked even the game developers who know alot more about the game mechanics than any of us know its easy thast why they call it cheap…..

    • DJK

      Do you even know what you are talking about? In Military terms?

    • Laurence

      You are clearly retarded aren't you because if its soooo easy why don't you go make montages with hundreds of thousands of views u mug

  • Lord Choppa

    Who cares? If you dont like it dont buy the game, fuck of back to mw2 with all your 9 year old whining quickscoping buddies who can't convince their parents to buy Black Ops for them.

  • John

    No-scope all the way!!

    • Grizz

      agreed, but then good luck with all these people who hate quickscoping saying you have an aimbot

  • Liam

    Good news. Sniper rifles should be very very powerful, but take a bit of strategy and patience to get some kills. A one hit no-scope kill in close quarters against a player with an SMG is unrealistic and unfair. No-scoping has turned war games into pure fantasy.

    • Laurence

      lmao and you think placing a tactical insertion down on the floor and jumping like 10 metres and knifing is very realistic of war

  • Dayton

    I think I speak for everyone here when I say we are more worries about noob tubers than a couple of people quick scoping…….

  • u mad?

    Quick scopin's for fools. If you can't handle the fact that Treyarch banned quick scoping then go cry somewhere else. "It's banned? WELL THEN IM NOT BUYING BLACK OPS" Fine, don't buy it, 500 million people are waiting for this game, you'll only be missing out.


    • Laurence

      lmfao another mentally retarded person hahaha… best quote ive ever seen "500 million people" do you know even know anything about COD

    • Jake

      You actually believe 500million people bought this? I bet that a few of them canceled their pre order because of this. Get your facts straight before you reply. Plus quick scoping takes more skills than shooting a fucking noob tube. So you go cry somewhere fag. Gg


      HAHA, ur a moron, "500 million"

  • theedman

    @sean – I totally agree. No quickscoping is making me reconsider even buying the game. I wasn't a fan of quickscoping in MW2, it was far too easy… no skill required. (Console-sized hitboxes on PC version didn't help either). But in COD4, it's much harder and takes much more skill than using a normal gun. Pub games are too easy with "normal" guns – quick scoping is a way to make it a challenge and fun to play still. Quickscoping also promotes "run and gun" gameplay with the scope by the ones who are good at it, and without it, there will be a lot more camping by snipers.
    Just my two cents.

    • Grizz

      Finally someone with some sense :)

  • Steel

    Quickscoping IS harder than using an assault rifle, smg, lmg, heck even pistols. I'm not going to not buy Black Ops just because QSing is going to be removed, although I can see the game getting VERY boring for me, I like a challenge, and quickscoping provided me with that challenge. I'll be interested to see what kind of Montages I get to watch now…..

  • Jasen

    bottom line…this will make more people happy then it does mad…if you're really that upset about ti don't buy the game. We don't need you crying abotu it during a match anyway. If you need to quickscope…play MW2 along with the boosters and UFO-ers…

  • Greenday4500

    Jesus christ people…alright here is a validated point of view:
    Quickscoping is in fact annoying and not really that much of a skill, but nonetheless a skill. To who ever said that quickscopers use aim-assist, you're wrong. In fact, I'm pretty sure everyone turns off aim assist, because it sucks. Anyways, it doesn't matter if quickscoping will get "banned". What they mean by that is that sleight of hand pro won't effect sniper rifles. Now it will be just like Cod4 Quickscoping which takes skill.

  • Havik

    lol all the people crying about no qs will buy the game anyway so stfu.

  • David Young

    You's all make me laugh quick scoping aim assist.. what the f**k? and QS is easy in real life also. It's a normal RIFLE with a scope. take scope of its a rife, I can simple rise my rifle to my eye and hit my target. My rifle is the L96 (British Rifle) got to love BO for that.. Ok OK! I have to say short, medium range is easy long long range is quite hard unless the target isnt mobile and I've only played alittle abit of MW2, I had runners, campers gay rage quitters and lets just say everyone I've played message me how I'm a shit sniper for hard scoping ETC soo I thought I'd learn QSing which is just Aim shoot. but I always missed, lucky if I got a hit maker! so drag shots where next.. I had to quickly aim down sight, drag over targer then shot! soo wheres the aim assist? QS yes easy! but not aim assist.. just like in real life when I sniper at the barracks make sure the targets in sight, rise rifle quick see its on target shoot! and hard scoper beats an quick scoper EASY! lol

  • Brandon

    The only thing that could make this game perfect now, would be the removal of noobtubes, tactical insertions, and last stand.

  • Nigga

    Each to their own.

    If people want to quickscope, let them.

    COD is easy as shit anyway. Assault Rifles kill in 3 bullets + SOH PRO, and you're telling me getting a hitmarker with snipers like the .50 cal is realistic?

    Nigga please.

    All you moaning about quickscoping need to get your heads checked.

    This Josh Olin cunt can get cancer as well.

    I'm not buying Black Ops, go get a life you sad punks.

    • Lame-o-police

      You care enough to post, then tell people to "get a life".

      If you're not buying, why do you care? Go comment on MW2 articles

  • da noob

    i hope they left quick scoping in private matches otherwise thats just gay.

  • Angel

    Great move trearch! cant wait for your game!

  • martyn


    • Laurence

      what a absolute moron haha, by "stay undetected" you mean camp your absolute nuts off get kill streaks convinve yourself that your awesum at COD n then bitch about QS which is obviously an aquired skill, you are retarded!

    • toru

      hey DUMBED DOWN SHEEP guy, there are three classes of rifles. asalt rifles( short to medium range) battle rifles(medium to long) and sniper rifles(long to very long range). A sniper rifle is in a diffrent range because they shoot further and are semiautomatic, not wateva reason ur implying.

  • Darkness

    As much as I hate getting noob tubed, I want it to stay. Don't people understand noob tubing is your counter against campers. If i know someones camping around a corner, I have a better chance of getting him with a noob tube then trading bullets. And now since there is no danger close, people have to somewhat aim their tubes now

  • Atom

    Unless it's a head shot Any type of one hit kill is cheap. It does not matter if you have to work to get good at it.

    Its a way for the lesser players to compete with the players that are actually good. The same way noob tube danger close works.

    This is what MW2 was made for. It was built to be the number one selling game of all time. It was supposed to level the playing field but all it did was destroy it for the traditional players.

    It was a major factor in the infinity ward break up. Treyarch is getting back to a more traditional format. The good players will dominate the bad players will stink until they work at getting better or find what ever noob exploit that teryarch did not realize they left open.

    Thank god there gone

    Quick scope
    danger close
    stopping power

    • baggins

      hmm, the only problem with that was that quick scoping existed in cod 4 and was a 1 bullet kill back then too so I really do not see how this ruins it for traditional players.

  • Hahah No QS 4 U


    "I'm not buying Black Ops, go get a life you sad punks"

    Really? Dude do you actually think before you speak?

    You tell people to get a life when I bet you spend hours on end trying to QS don't make me laugh. All you fags whining about how QS is going to be removed need to go somewhere no one cares and not everyone wants a game where a good portion are just Snipers.

    Good shit Trayarch giving players that great COD feeling back. Can't wait to get my hands on it.

  • Rob

    Lets put the "Quick Scoping is hard" thing to bed once and for all. I saw Ken Burton get a kill quickscoping, for those that dont know him just check him on Mishinima. Nice guy, worse CoD player I've ever seen so if he can do it a monkey with a blindfold could.
    As for noob tubers, scavange dosent replen noob toob grenades now, just ammo and normal grenades, so that means that noob tubers have rec a nerf as well.
    Suck it up ladies, its a good thing, just have to learn how to adjust is all.

  • yay Treyarch!

    so basically this means I'll have to USE a SNIPER RIFLE as it was INTENDED!?(pretends to faint)

    already do and I'm decent with em(haven't layed MW2 for awhile due to the blatent BS going on in there)

  • HungTravis

    Well it looks like every one going to be running around with acogs on there snipers.

  • Gamble

    All of you talking about how easy and annoying quickscoping is, Try it in COD4. You cant just run around quickscoping people like its no big deal UNLESS you're actually good at it. It seems to me that QSing will be right back where it was in COD4. You cant stop people from QSing either way.
    side note-the harder you make QSIng the better. Thats just more pride in being able to do it. MW2 was a joke, any moron could QS.

  • Keith

    Awesome. Anyone can use the auto-aim and press fire. Quick scoping is for kn0bs.

  • Gamble

    @josh, even if they take the scopes off of snipers we'll still be QSing.

  • TehHasan

    hey, for the guys who would like to ban quikscoping, just suck at it and they just want to keep it away because they shit.

  • Josh

    who cares if people quickscope, its free kills for me

  • karl Ras

    Now the noob tuber plzzzzzz

  • Ricky

    Treyarch officiall failed on this fuck black ops not buying it :) stick to my cod4

    • Boo

      Alright just shut up honestly because you'll eventually end up buying the game as soon as you see all your friends playing it. Get over it

  • Jeff

    For all those whining about how “unrealistic” quick scoping is, and how you want a more realistic game I give you this option….

      Reply of the year! Century even!



  • zI Ghost

    I love the people who say that they will not buy Black Ops because of the nerfed quickscoping, thats pretty pathetic. I am someone who likes to do quickscopes in private matches and occasionally run around in a public with it but it wasnt the only thing to do in the game people. The people who say "oh quickscoping takes skill and all you babies are just mad cause I killed you with a sniper" are retarded, especially the ones who will not but CoD because they cant quickscope anymore. Quickscoping is not the only way to play the game. and one more thing to the people who say Treyarch is stupid and they wont buy it cause quickscoping is out or that theres so many people who are dedicated to it that its a bad move my treyarch, did you even read the article. It says that there is more people who are opposed to it then those that are for it. I say good move by Treyarch by adding more balance to the game and actually listening to the players unlike Infinity Ward.

  • nick

    its a style of play. if anything it gives the person not quickscoping an advantage. it's really the only thing i enjoy now in mw2. and now they're going to take it away? how in anyway is this cheap? take out knifing, it's cheap. take out shotguns, they're cheap. you can apply this to any aspect of the game. rushing is cheap. camping is cheap. and so forth. this is so stupid. way to go treyarch…

  • HungTravis

    If it is like COD4 QS then everything is ok.

  • @PBkaptinkrunch

    obviously there are more people complaining about quickscoping than other things b./c thats what they just fixed. .

    im new to FPS (mw2 is first one). i started using the sniper rifle not that long ago. i diddnt start using it to quickscope but i found myself doing it alot b/c it was fairly easy to do andit was fun!!! if a newb can do it than anyone can.

    its not easy to do but its certainly not hard by no means.

    im glad they are getting rid of this from black ops.

    if u quickscopers dont by this game it is not gonna hurt game profits at all.

  • @PBkaptinkrunch

    ALSO if im reading this correct "players will now need to wait a brief moment until the sniper sight is centered before they take a shot" …. for all the people saying they are gonna quickscope its just not possible. when you go to quickscope and pull the trigger no bullet is gonna come out u retards. AS FAR AS NO SCOPING i guess u can still do that.

  • OpTic HECZ

    just because none of you are able to do it and dont have the skill doesnt mean its cheap. its just a matter of being good enough or not. if you believe its about the auto aim, you're honestly a moron. try it and you will see u are unable to hit a single shot even with the auto aim. so the creator is basically saying in this, " I'm not able to quickscope and i dont like it so im not gonna allow it." if your not good at the game you make, then why even make it you pussy

    • Darkness

      …………The drugs you must be taking. It uses auto aim, majority of people know its the auto aim, and the creator knows its auto aim. People like you really don't need to play this game

    • dueller

      OpTic fanboy? lol scrub ive tried it once auto aim got me 15/2/3

    • alex

      all of you need to grow up he has his opinion like everyone else and you have no right to tear him down for it. The fact of the matter is that you just dont like to quickscope so you are trying to tear down a huge community of ppl to fit your own needs. I admit quicking in MW2 was a little to easy but in no way OP. bring cod4 quicking back and everyone will be happy. And to all of you that are tearing down quickscoping you are only hurting yourselfs, you had the advantage because we messed around with sniper rifles but just wait untill we start using assaults and subs.

  • KRoNiC o KiD

    how can you stop quickscoping lol impossible everyone will still do bunch of fucking faggot man get a grip

  • Crimson star

    wow ur not buying the game becouse of quick scoping …… what a bitchy thing to say if ur that said about play modern warfar 2 why everey one else playin BO having fun not worring about some one running around with ther sensitivity all the way up and youre face with a barret killing you with a halo jump.

    PS. i quick scope 4 a while and it takes no skill what so ever

  • Austin

    Wow. Sorry, but CoD doesn't even have that realistic of sniper rifles in the first place, so why would this even be an issue? I'm not someone who runs around a map in close quarters quick-scoping, but I take pride in my ability to quickly line up a shot with any gun, weather that be quickly taking someone out with an M4 or seeing someone running across a field and pulling up my Barrett real fast to take them out. I feel like so many people are not going to think this is an issue until they start losing kills be having that delay.

  • Dave

    I'm both surprised and happy about this. I always thought it took skill to quickscope and i never considered it cheap. I'd prefer to have one sniper quickscoping running and gunning over camping anyday.

  • Lulz

    People who are good at quickscoping are more often that not even better with a fully automatic gun… well done Treyarch, turn your brain-child into a 100% gamebattles based game. Idiots.

  • c,o,dmw2!

    k quick scoping does take skill u cant just hand some random cod player that has never quickscoped before a xbox or play station controller and they can automatically quick scope. so yes treyarch quick scoping does take skill. i would know since i quickscope and wen i first did it i sucked but i got better and better the more i did it so… it takes skill

  • Epic

    hardscoping is way easier than quickscoping. i can hardscope in my hard is hardscoping. the only reason i still play modern warfare 2 is because of quickscoping. so treyarch think twice before you do!!

  • @Klondyy

    Wait… quick scoping is where you bring the scope up and fire as soon as it zooms in, right? Well then quick scoping is still in the game, it just takes a bit longer.

  • Treyarchsucks

    omg there goes me and 3000000 sales

    • treyarch owns

      You're a loser retard.. go die you faggot fuck!

  • Josh

    Also, I hate noob tubes as much as the next guy. But noob toobs are very realistic. The explosion in real life is devestating. So they are not used incorrectly in the game. They are just very annoying and require no accuracy, as in real life where they are used to shoot in windows …etc. But quick scoping is exploiting a flaw in the game. Its not auto aim but rather the fact that the crosshairs pull together when scoping making the shot too acurate. Treyarch is fixing this by putting in the delay. So they are not taking QS away, they are just making it more realistic. As for noob tubes, keep them, annoying but an actual tactic. Just give them two tubes with no resupply. Last stand should be there but not with headshots. Last stand is realistic as most people do not die immeditely. But headshot "your dead" not last stand. So last stand, noob tube needs to be improved. No Scoping has to go as we know it now, completely a glitch in the game. So everybody will be happy, there will be QS just not as easy as it is now. Everyone just enjoy the game and if you want to get rid of all of the BS play some game battles. Keeps the real quality going and its really fun good competition with mostly no BS.

  • Declyn Mccleary

    LoL u think this is gonna make us stop think again treyarch Fuck all haters of quickscoping. look at the amount of people who buy your games and quickscope!
    think we hav all spent money on your game n u think your gonna ruin it n make it shit. we will quickscope Fuck Treyarch. i might not even buy the game thinkin of n quickscoping check the youtube videos. we make your game popular. THE QUICKSCOPERS MAKE THE GAME POPULAR!!!!!!!!!. even we make the money off of it aswell so.end of Quickscoping aint band.

    • dueller

      mw2 wasent made for QS some guy is like lol look what i did the majority of players dont QS

  • mw2geek

    Finally, quickscoping is lame, reminds me of unreal tournament one shot mode. You quickscoping freaks cant really comment on this, becouse do you know the gameplay in black ops, how snipers are in there ? It might be even more imba in bo, then it is in mw2. Snipers should be long range, thats the point. Quickscoping makes them short and long ranged. <- imba

  • Momiji

    It takes more skill to quickscope than it does to sit in a corner and shot whoever walks by!

  • carlito_cash

    hahaha f*ck you lame ass quick scoping bumz! go find some skill now losers!

  • Musashi

    Hahaha what a bunch of idiots, if any of you knew anything about the game you'd know one thing. Snipers are the worst weapons in the game, that's why you never see them in Gamebattles.
    You're just looking for something to hate on people. As for cheap it's the hardest thing in the game to do all the other guns will kill someone before they're even fully scoped in to get a shot off. The range best for quickscoping is at mid range which aim assist has no effect on. Don't cry about something cause you can't do it, as for realism it's a computer game there is no such thing as perks either.

  • Listen!!!!!!!

    I think theres nothing wrong with camping and hard scoping. Because in real life would you run around like a dipshit and try to kill all the enemies. Also when people hardscope that is how they do it in real life. You can do quickscopes with ur friends using airsoft snipers but in real life I would camp, use strategy, and hardscope. So in conclusion there is really nothing wrong with any of it. Do everyone stop ur bitchiness.

  • barnes

    quickscoping is skillless right……so this aim asist we are using to quickscope still applys to everygun in the game so its cheap to kill any1 with any gun? so stupid all the people ay that quickscoping is skillless is the people that cant do it well done if you can line up your shot then fire thats not quickscoping when i quick scope im never aimed at the enemy i move it on to them with the rs as im aiming in and i dont use sleight of hand pro and ive been doing this since cod2 and why is it i get more kills with an smg or assault rifle than a sniper? and for going on about realism its a GAME join the army if you want realism ffs grow up you bunch of bitchs

  • John

    Fucking bring it Treyarch there's no way to stop a good sniper in finding faster ways of killing their target, I will fucking quickscope if you like it or not :) i'll give you 5/5 for trying to stop it tho -_-

  • FcePLM

    All the people complaining about auto-aim quickscoping are obviously ignoring the huge amount of auto-aim automatics get. Why do you think the FAMAS is so effective, besides high damage/low recoil. It's because the game stops your crosshair when you scroll over an enemy.
    Some major hypocrites.

  • FACE

    hey quickscopers quit your bitching and go back to modern warfail 2

  • hablaah

    It's just a game. Why do people get annoyed. If it's in the game it's in the game. Deal with it.

  • Alan Ng article certainly touched a nerve didn't it?

    • Darkness

      Sir, your article struck bone lol

  • Louis

    Talking about realism in CoD is a joke, it is an addictif action game indeed but from the moment they put perks in it realism was over. I think what they should say is they are trying to remove some of the tons of exploits and glitches that plague MW2. This is the reason a stoped playing MW2. I never quick sniped, but if they remove that i guess they should also removed almost all the perks especially those creating crazy runners armed with shotguns and moving faster than light , or reloading faster than Billy the kid… yeah realism….

  • FFF

    our thoughts wont fucking matter. it wont get him to change his mind. little 8 year old's complaining about how we wont be able to get 360 wallbang collateral quickscopes arent going to change his mind.

    Just fucking deal with it, find another way to use a sniper rifle apart from quickscoping. If you simply just can't have good scores without quickscoping then I would actually be glad to know where you live and fucking beat you.


  • guest

    why is quickscoping even considered a skill? quickscoping is exploiting a sniping element in the game design, hence players have practiced with it and have PROVISIONED it as a skill. fix the game design (thx Treyarch), and this "skill" will no longer exist. nobody runs around with a sniper rifle, period.

  • The Sensible One

    now that QS is gone I expect all of you praising it will be complaining about somehting else down the road. Celebrate while you can because there WILL be something to exploit and it WILL be exploited. in about a year the next CoD will come out and everyone will have forgotten about this game praying for Sledgehammer Entertainment to do a better job.

  • RDT

    To all the people whining about Quickscoping: Don't like it? Go back to an older cod then and stop whining. Things change, grow a pair and man up ffs…..

      thats y were going to the newer cod we dont want QS

  • Darkness

  • ALovinHouseWife

    k the people who say that quickscopings gay because youre just abusing auto aim are stupid. yeah a lot of people use the auto aim but a TON of people like me just drag scope. its a quick scope but i dont line up right on the player. and to the people saying its not realistic, are you guys stupid? there are so many other things in this game that are unrealistic but you choose to point out quickscoping. this will piss a lot of people off including me. treyarch was doing great until this. Josh Olin im sorry but this totally killed the game for me. there will be so many more campers now. blahh this is so gay.

  • silver

    what the fuck, have any of you people actually shot a REAL scoped GUN before, obviously you wouldn't be able to quick scope(cod is a video game, keep that in mind) also you wouldn't be able to take cover crouching behind a object and scope in and pop up instantly having a accurate shot, it is not possible the scope would be wobbling like a motherfucker, this is what your going to be seeing a lot of in black ops, so prepared to be annoyed as fucking hell. CATER TO NOOBS, i think so… you take quick scopes and keep tactical insertion, umm yeah, fuck you guys @treyarch your cocksuckers

  • Olin’s You Sucked All The Fun Out Of COD

    Olin you are so retarded people like to record montages and we are getting excited to play YOUR DAMN GAME to make MONTAGES to show people how fun it is to get clips instead of good scores because it’s less frustrating and to also show how fun the game is and to promote it to other people who might be interested wow thanks a lot you asshole now I have to scrap my first Black Ops montage unless we find a way past the no quickscoping so either way you suck.

  • thomas

    quickscoping makes the game fun and if this game does not have it not alot of people r going to buy it

  • annoyed

    funny how everyone talks about how this game will now be more realistic..if you want realism…don't play this game. your retarted if you say that. treyarch, is retarted, why not just take out aim assist. realism..ha that cracks me up.. might want to disable prone because ppl don't dropshot before getting shot either, might wan't to take out ninja cuz well, ppls footsteps arn't silent, o might wan't to take out hardened cuz you don't have bulets that hit concrete that look like sparklers going off, dang, if you boil it down, you will never have a realistic call of duty game so everyone stop bitching

  • CJay

    You would do so much better running around with a fully automatic weapon compared with a sniper rifle. I dont understand why he says that quick scoping is cheap, in MW2 maybe because it zooms in so quickly with sleight of hand and super slow without it, but it CoD4 it was nearly perfect. If i ran around with an AR or SMG i would have a much higher k/dr. Plus, if Black Ops has Sleight of Hand Pro on other guns except the sniper then that puts the sniper at even bigger disadvantage than they would be in the start, almost all the other guns already ADS faster than a sniper can. I just know a lot of people would be disappointed with this so called "improvement", the sniping community is very big…
    no homo

  • treyarchsucks

    fuck treyarch, i was waiting like 2 years for a balanced game where i can just quickscope whatever i want, now i have to stick with cod4 another year. this is the most dumb action treyarch made. they just suck at making good games

  • gest

    So instead of quickscoping complaints, everyone's going to be bitching about people sitting behind claymores for the entire game.

  • Llama

    Let all the whiners play that mess they call MW2. Thank You Treyarch for calling it like it is… (CHEAP) All we wanted was a realistic and level playing field. Nice Start!

  • Boi Parr

    =/… i dont think any1 will be using a sniper in black ops

  • Valor195

    This game was already going to be amazing. Now there is one less cheap tactic. However, I do respect some quickscopers who use it in case an emergency. All these people on this board write negative stuff Bout no quickscoping because that all they are able to do. When these noobs only quick scope it really dumb. A sniper should not be used like that. It isn’t a matter of making it more realistic. It is about making it more tactical and strategy based. Quickscoping defeats the purpose of snipers as their purpose is long range TACTICAL weapons. Quickscoping is not natural and uses no intelligence whatsoever. Sorry for spelling and if comment is too long. Buy black ops!!

  • chris

    this is so stupid quickscoping is harmless. it doesnt give people an unfair advantage its just something fun you can do. besides if someone rushes a spawn with a sniper and someone rushes it with an smg who do u think is gona get more kills? also auto aim doesnt influence quickscoping at all and if u think quickscoping takes no skill whats harder quickscoping or spraying someone down with an smg. and i dont think "real" sniping will hold up very well in such a fast paced environment. who wants to scope in wait a few seconds then shoot your enemy? no one. and if they want to make cod more realistic then take out spawning perks and killstreaks

  • joe

    Okay treyarch get one thing right BEFORE you take out quickscoping. Axe the noob tube are you F@#KING STUPID?!!! "Quick scoping is a cheap way to play"… well so is noob tubing you F@#KEN IDIOT. I bet Josh Olin was a noob tuber and every time he tried to kill someone he got quickscoped and rage quit. Take out quickscoping but dont leave in the noob tubes, because that just makes you look dumb.

  • dom

    I love how everyone is saying that 'ohh you won't see a sniper run around in real life trying to quickscope' Well no shit, that's a bit obvious. This game isn't based on real life… If it was no one owuld buy it, because we would have to worry about how much weight we carry, drinking, food, sleep, and everything else… Don't chat shit about QS because in my eyes…. it's someones 'tactic,style' of playing and they take it away because SOME people dislike it? The people who dislike it are thr fucking idiots, you are the ones that noobtube, commando and just fuck around. and also people say QSing is down to the aim assist? Well on PC we don't have that and we can still QS… So how about that ay?

  • TheQuickscopeLover

    Cheap way to play? Hmm are you serious! Why dont you play a full game of Free for All or w/e quickscoping the play the same game using a SmG or an Assault. I bet you find using a SmG is alot easier than quickscoping. Oh and btw i dont think ill be buying this game anymore. Thanks Treyarch for ruining what we no as CoD! Oh and i kno you said more people dislike quickscoping than people that do, check out all the vids on youtube of people sniping and look at the amount of views! So you obv dont know how many people like quickscoping!

    ~~~ R.I.P Quickscoping ~~~

  • Davam

    I don't think it is a good idea and people who are against quickscoping seem to think it is a lot worse than it is (Though this could be said about a lot of quickscopers too). Quickscoping does not give you an unfair advantage over other players, I don't, and it is not even close to the least realistic thing in the CoD games so I don't understand why people are so against it. If you like it, don't do it. I don't like the fully automatic guns, but not i basically don't have the option of whether or not I get to use them.

    Quickscoping has become a part of a game, it is why I like CoD games, in fact I know a lot of people who like CoD for quickscoping. Clearly it bugs people when teammates go 2-30 trying to quickscope, so they need to fix this but taking out quickscoping is not the way to do it. I doubt i am buying this game now.

  • ben

    great, now the game is going to fucking suck. people say its nooby to run around with a sniper rifle and quickscope but these r the same ppl that use noob tubes and rpg's. the people that say quickscoping is easy have obviously never tried it because it takes WAY more skill to do than to use your precious ump's and m16's. it is true that the game does have a built in aim assist, but it is NOWHERE near enough to actually make a difference in quickscoping. you people are dumb.

  • dueller

    LT,RT right after Makes me pro :D F*** QS Q.Q more and play mw2 if u want to QS

    • Guest

      That's how all guns are shot.
      Therefore nothing is skilled.


    the people that r complaning about quick scopers are just hating that they cant do it themselves because it takes practice to learn and is way harder that aiming a gun and shooting they should of removed the camper spots because that really is the cheap way to play

  • g_ram

    i'd much rather deal with a camper than a quick scoper makes the snipers an any purpose gun with the bonus of one shot kills from any were in the map not to mention it relies on the auto aim feature say what u want about skill its a first person shooter since when does pushing two buttons at the right times count as aiming? i can't belive its getting the the point that "hard scoping" is disliked by quick scopers haha lame! btw adrian thumbs down it takes ten mins to learn mad skillssssss

  • Autotuned

    quickscoping is a skill i think on the pc at least because there is no auto aim on the pc so i am a little mad that they took it out

    Fuck you treyarch suck my dick fukn loosers take out the only thing in game tht actually takes any skill at all. Therz a fukn reason infinity ward made the better call of dutys and thts because treyark kant do shit right fukn loosers

  • jack

    you idiots treyarch…….

  • aydin

    trearch you make me sick! thanks for ruining cod, you should worry about things more like rubbish "unrealistic" perks!! rather than quikscoping, do want to know why cod4 was game of the year? because it was so simple, involves skill to get kills. i'll be sticking to cod 4, trearch good luck with sales, you have lost my vote.

  • anonymos

    This is insane! why ban Quickscoping, when there are alot bigger problems? And if any of you who thinks quickscoping is cheap then try doing it! I personally think quickscoping is the most fun way to play this game, and i actually thought Black Ops would be an awesome game, but at this point i'm considdering if it's even worth buying…
    Futhermore quickscoping is alot harder than running around with a SMG and just spraying.

  • WeeToddEdwards

    Love the Call of Duty games

  • baggins

    Well here is a response on why quick scoping is not OVERPOWERED.

    The biggest reason I have heard that quick scoping is easy is that your abusing the aim assist. Well all guns have aim assist so that really should not be a major problem but If that was the case wouldn't all good quick scoper's be going insanely positive every game. well many famous snipers such as optic predator would be going ridiculously positive every game, but they are not.

    Also If quick scoping was insanely over powered wouldn't mlg players be using the sniper rifle, because last time I checked the sniper rifles weren't banned. Despite this most mlg players stick to their ump and assault riffles like the famas.

    The second main argument I hear against quick scoper's is that it is unrealistic, but this is not the case. You can very well quick scope or 360 snipes somebody in real life, but it is impractical since its an easy way to get your self killed. But lets face do you really want everyone playing like how they would in real life, because if you do you will end up with a bunch of people sitting in rooms covered with claymores camping with there shotgun in an attempt to stay alive. This is just a way some people challenge themselves.

    Now the final argument I heard for the intervention being overpowered is that it is a sniper and snipers should only be good at long distance while being bad at close combat. Now the problem with this is that there are so many guns that are good at all ranges including close combat long distance and short range such as the acr, famas, and m-16 in fact even the sub machine guns like the ump could kill at long ranges. In fact the sniper riffle really is not all the good at close range and it is easy to both miss the

    I agree that if we took the sniper with slight of hand and put it in black ops it would be over powered but if you just take away slight of hand the ability to snipe in close quarters is greatly reduced and they once again will become worse then the assault rifles. Removing the ability to quick scope is not only unnecessary to balance the game but it ruins the game for a lot of people who enjoy quick scoping. As a marathon sniper in MW2 I really find the assault rifles way to easy so I actually canceled my preorder of black ops and have no choice but to go back to the halo series.

    Thank you for anyone who read through this rant, If you have other reasons why you believe quick scoping should be taken out in Black Ops please care to enlighten me.

    • Puggles the 2nd

      Sorry man but canceling your pre-order because of a disadvantage in quickscoping is ridiculous, also it seems everyone is forget you have 2 weapon slots hence why a sniper should be decent all around not just sniping, also i only play hardcore and the fact is i get frustrated when half the players are camping with sniper rifles, but i shouldn't because they are playing their role in the game very well, plus i never run and spray strictly ump 45, models, marathon, cold blooded, commando and i only burst fire simply because of recoil, i couldn't give a shit about quick scoping i never seem to have a problem with them most people who are complaining about it are generally bad at cod i never do it but i guarantee that they are the people that hang at the bottom of the scoreboard and cry about getting smashed fuck em, i will buy this game because i love cod

      • baggins

        The reason why I canceled my order is because they are off setting the reticule when you zoom in making it impossible to quick scope. I enjoy a challenge In video games and using marathon quick scoping against assault riffles was a challenge to me, with out that I would rather play a game that requires more skill in general like halo reach.

  • pebbles

    quickscoping is randomly shooting in someones direction and hoping that the bullet will hit the box. if it misses, repeat.

    what 'skill' is can be argued. but skill is precision. the less luck, the more skill.

    • baggins

      you have clearly never quick scoped

  • Toby

    Yeah, but if you tried to quickscope in real life, the sniper would take half of your head off!

  • Laurence

    This is absolutely shoking in my opinion, and as for the people who say its easy to immitate is hilarious because you can garuntee that they cannot quick scope for S**T. If you look at MW2 in general if people argue on it someone challenges the other to a 1 v 1 quick scoping match. What they going to do now "cumon ill take u on in a last stand and noob tubing match" what a joke. Also I rekon that Trearch are talking s**t saying they've had more support of the faggots who cannot quick scope and want it gone because I believe much more people enjoy quick scoping that the absolute scrubs that noob tube because lets face it when you play call of duty there is hardly anyone who leaves a game going "aww ffs quick scoper" compared to "Fkin TUBER".
    Trearch = One big joke!

  • guest

    probs all the people who angry about quickscopin are the one who cant quickscope

  • Cole

    Treyarch I would personally like to say,, you fucking suck. Quickscoping is one of the only things in cod that takes skill. Idk how you don't see that. Thought you were going to have a great game. Obviously not. Oh that reminds me.. on the reality factor. NO ONE CARES. Its a damn game lol. It's not real life. So why not leave quick scoping for the gamers and the smg's for the little fags who think they're in a real war. Despite all that everyone here is going to tell me that a sniper takes out a dude 20 feet away with an smg isn't skill? That's stupid. You miss you're dead. You're too slow, you're dead. They see you first and are half decent at the game (noone here don't worry bout that) you're dead. And all the little noobs who complain about quickscoping.. you just can't do it lol. Simple as that. That goes for you too Olin. It's ok that you fail. So do all these other noobs lol. You failed hardcore treyarch. Just saying.


    this arguing is amazing to me,! ,,I pre-ordered black ops prestige cuz i love all the cod games period! ok sure theres things that are annoying boosting in my main beef with mw2 totaly ruins the game for me,and i am no fan of getting blasted over n over by a campin quickscoping tac inserting tubing spawnkiller ! lol but if it really bugs me i find another match or quit playing

    my point is its not being forced on you nobody is making you play it, if you dont like it dont bother with it i know i wont miss your complaining while im discovering all the new cool stuff in black ops, i sold my halo reach cuz it didnt do anything for me and i used to love that series and i didnt even get mad or call anybody a puzzy or a cheater, just played for a couple weeks and figured out its not my thing any more
    GAMES ARE FOR FUN!! NOT TO BE TAKEN SO SERIOUSLY!! NOTICE THE WORD "GAME" thats a big hint and a half 4 yer azz!! its not called a "get seriously bent about this software" lmao
    come on ppl lighten up in 100 years non of us will even be here to care

  • blake

    I think they should be aloud to quickscope it is the only thing I do in MW2 so if it does not have quickscoping I really wold not buy it. So please do not ban it that shit would be gay.

  • Macdaddyable

    Realism are kidding me? if u want realism take out friggen noob tubes and last stand. Treyarch your bs.

  • RC3

    If quick scoping isnt a skill because of aim assist, then why not just take out the aim assist? Also, PC anyone? Explain the aim assist theory on that one…..

  • theorysix


  • Rotfll.

    hahaha. this is halarious.! banning quickscoping. what about noobtubing off spawn. cammondo across fucking rust. what about this one – a throwingknife to the shoe can kill you.! what the fuck treyarch.

  • Tyler

    I don't know why Treyarch hasn't seen the obvious compromise. All they need to do is make a game mode where you can only use snipers, and quick scoping legal, as well as having everyone with the same perks, and gun. OR an even better solution is just to make it impossible to use sleight of hand with a sniper, this would fix everything. On MWF2 i quickscope with marathon, any1 who says that that is unfair needs to shut the hell up and stop bitching. That would be completely fair.

  • james


  • james

    quick scopin is the best part of the game online. its not a cheap way 2 play its harder. the games not supposed 2 b 2 realistic or it wont b fun so put quick scopin bk in or i wont buy the game u fun wreckin motherfuckers

    • Darkness

      I think its better for the rest of us that you don't buy the game

      • Guest

        Yes Darkness.
        The game is going to be SO much worse if this one person decided to buy it. Wonderful logic and all.

  • Dave

    Your all fucking dumb!!!!!! Its a game, why does it have to be realistic!! want realism go outside you dumb shits!!!! What is wrong with quickscoping, if you miss your dead most of the time!! Why take out quickscoping??? i will still buy the game, quickscoping isnt the only thing to do either

  • Adam

    Lol at all the people complaining here, It's all the people who can't quick scope and are moaning about it…

  • Dan

    Thats bull. If he wasn't so retarded he would realise that people only staring complaining about quickscoping after MW2. No complaints in CoD 4 adn 5. Oh wait, thats cos it was balanced and took SKILL. So you just remove it after MW2? RETARDED
    Besides, teh people who complain are the people who cannot do it and taht just isnt fair, taking it away from us skilled players. RETARDED

  • woooow treyarch

    QuickScoping IS a skill. I have played COD on the PC where there is NO aim assist and there are still plenty of good quickscopers. I would bet any amount of money there are 100x more complaints about tubing and camping each day than there are about quickscoping. Besides, quickscoping is mainly used in private matches anyway so what is there to complain about? It kinda sucks that quickscoping is removed, so many more people have probably decided not to buy this game because of this…I am still personally going to buy Black Ops just because of the sheer awsomeness of the other content ;).
    Bottom line is, AIM ASSIST DOES NOT HELP WITH QUICKSCOPING IF YOU HAVE SKILL. And also, most of you are probably only agreeing with the quickscope removal because you are trying to suck up to the developers. I bet that you have quickscoped or do it all the time.

  • Apples

    Well treyarch just turned a good game in to a run an gun spary an pray piece of sh!t,look how i use the m16 an fire from the hip,im having so much f*cking fun….anyway since infinity ward is done for so is call of duty,,,never thought it would happen but the battlefeild games from Dice are about to own call of duty.

  • BlueD

    To everyone trying to say that quickscoping doesn’t take skill and it’s all aimassist, then PROVE IT. Oh my goodness, I see everyother comment is that “it’s no skill and all aimassist” then I see people saying “I hate the qs’ers going 4-30″. Why arethere completely 2 contradictory arguements against quickscoping?! If it’s so overpowered and skillless why then is an average qs’ing game produce such an average score. I rarely see or have a game of qs’ing where I go 30-3, but when I use reg guns 30-3 is quite common. And if it’s all aimassist why do we miss? I don’t understand that, aren’t I doing SOMETHING with my analog sticks to make me not miss? Prove all us “nub qs’ers” wrong and record 5 games qs’ing and 5 games using reg guns. You’ll quickly find out its about 93849834 times harder to qs than to use reg guns.

  • alex

    To all you complaining about quickscoping because you fail to much to do it your selfs, just wait untill we are forced to use assault rifles and subs. Quicksoping is something people do for fun it is in no way cheap and I promise you that if you give anyone who quickscopes an assault rifle they will do better than they would have quicking. so to sum it up all you fails complaing about quickscoping because your kd's are low wait untill the good players start using assault rifles.

  • iseis

    Honestly who cares if people quickscope. I don’t do it myself

    I say let them if that’s what they do to have fun in the game because really isn’t that the point of a game.

  • XHolyHeadShotX PS3

    Fuck this shit… Im not Fucking Buying this game… all i did was quickscope in mw2. It made everything more challenging and now what are you going to do for 1v1s? Im sticking to mw2

  • Diablerie

    I think that no quickscoping is a big THUMBS DOWN, becouse i loved it in cod series and MOST of the community loved it too. People who talk that QS is a cheap way to play, simply can't quickscope

  • Guest

    The people who are happy about this are the people who CANT QUICK SCOPE they are just fustrated that they cant do it i bet if u could do it u would be angry about this

  • Bad

    Ok if quickscoping takes no skill. I bet all my no skill could beat yours in quickscoping anyday. And you guys are like yay more realisic! Eating a whole clip of a machine gun is not realistic at all. Neither is 95% of the stuff in call of duty. If you want realistic just get rid of the videogame and go join the army..

  • william

    why couldnt they have just tooken out sleight of hand pro?(i mean the faster ads part) quickscoping was never cheap or easy before that. cod 4 snipers were legit quickscopers and not alot of people did them it actually took SKILL to quickscope back then but when mw2 came out that all changed. sleight of hand pro came out and everyone used that to quick scope. so why not just take that out again? no one had a problem with it so leave it andjust let the players have fun in there own way…. whats next? ur gonna take out drop shotting too? make u have to wait 1 full second after u prone? think treyarch THINKKKKKKKKKK

  • miketheguy

    their not making it more fair for everyone, they are making it more noob friendly just like death streaks in mw2. look at counterstrike and halo where you can shoot just as accuarate without ads as when you are. this takes away from the random side of things and let's true skill come into play. i like the fact that SoH doesn't effect snipers but i don't think it should even be a valid perk and to fuck up the aiming all together is just forcing players to look somewhere else. I can't wait for respawn entertainment to come out with their first title. I am most likely not going to buy anymore activision games, not just because of this but the way they treat their workers and how bobby kotick believe making games should not be fun. i have no love for bobby or his wanna be infinity ward

  • shamamagram

    i love seeing some pre-pubescent kids jump off a cliff to try and 360 me. honestly it makes the game easier.

  • Quickscoper

    wow treyarch is really gonna realise quickly that thats a load of crap, there is a lot of people that quick scope because it takes more skill then aiming down the sight of a sub machine gun!. Why not make it the same with machine guns then>???? make it so when you first look through the sight you can't quickly aim because thats not realistic, !!! exactly thats what i thought!. i preoderd and fucking rung up and said they can keep there peice of crap

  • xconnoro

    im still going to quick scope, and it will work, even if i have to practice all day long i eventualy will quick scope and because of the patch it WILL be a skill due to them making it more complicated. i bet all of the people slagging quickscoping off are nube tubers/campers/rushers and yes, even the people who just run around with riot shields and rpgs? i mean how is that realistic?

  • Adietheman

    Quick scoping is a skill LOL. You can call any thing a skill. Its only called a skill by the people who do it all the time and try justify why they do it all the time. I can quick scope and only use it when i get stuck moving between locations if I am running with as sniper. i wouldn't call it a skill as I didn't have to learn anything hard like say Juggling. That is a skill with your hands eye coordination. Quick scoping its not hard to do, aim and fire half way. Its not real life which pisses me off. noob tubes do exist so that fair enough but just using it all the time gets a bit annoying. but turning on friendly fire would put a stop to that as you kill as many of your own team mates. But hopefully the changes to the knives and taking away commando will make a bit difference. being able to knife from the other side of the room and kill over a shot gun is not real. and the throwing knife killing? never got that one. Surely it should only slow you. I Have seen people fight hand to hand after being stabbed two or three times.

    • baggins

      The difference is that in real life if your caught with a sniper out changing locations you would just no scope at him since the bullet would just fly straight. And your right quick scoping in MW2 wasn't hard (which is why I marathon quick scoped in that game) but it still required more skill then any thing else did in the noob friendly game.
      I believe they needed to make snipers harder to use but they went a little too far.

  • BIG BO

    I quick scoped treyarch and they rage quit resulting in this.

  • tinyraver666

    FFS would everyone who quickscopes stop calling themselves snipers, it's an insult. To all those who dispute the FACT that quickscoping is not a skill, it is proven so you are the only ones who are retarded. This is, in my mind the best reason to get this game yet, I haven't been a CoD fan for a couple of years now purely because the game mechanics make it far too easy to be enjoyable and there are far superior FPS games on the market ATM that are being overshadowed by the hype. Finally, (true) sniping (ie; not quickscoping) is NOT camping. Camping is hiding in buildings without making any attempt at offense. To snipe effectively, it is impossible to maintain a fixed position as muzzle flash will eventually give away your position and the real skill in sniping is in the stealth.

    • baggins

      Hmm, so you believe quick scoping is not a skill how so please explain I am listening.

      The reasons I hear why quick scoping is cheap is that it abuses game assist, hmm the problem with that is that all guns get that same benefit. meaning it equals it self out and aim assist only helps with drag shots since it slows you down over the target. Normal quickscoping doesn't normally get much help from it. Want proof, even with out aim assist computer players can still quickscope.

      Also if quickscoping was cheap then why wouldn't all the mlg players be running around with them, hey there allowed to there not banned. Hmm I wounder why they don't. Maybe its because umps, the m-16,and famas are so much cheaper.

      so the "its cheap" reason doesn't apply to quickscoping, at least not in MW2.

    • Derp

      Right, hiding behind claymores, camping and moving from "position to position" when you retards think someone is coming up behind you is "skill".

  • MikeyGough

    I 360 quickscoped someone the other day in real life and got a hit-marker, mate was I annoyed. But on a serious note, Quickscoping rapes and is the only real enjoyment I get out of the game. And in personal experience, most people quick scope in custom games and not on actual matches, and the people who are actually good at quickscoping are usually a lot better than people when using say; an assault rifle! Treyarch have fucked things up, and tbh i dont think black ops is a patch on MW2.

  • M.A.J

    Treyarch has taken all the fun out of COD titles, & as i own a Black Ops copy i have this to say to treyarch, stay the hell a way from any more COD tittles, you have all ready f**k Black Ops up it is THE worst game i have ever play On & Offline, this has been call "the biggest game of the year" more like the worst game of the decade, I will not be buying any more Treyarch products so leave COD titles to Infinity Ward, so stop making games Treyarch

  • Half_A_Spoon

    Honestly, I think quickscoping is still well and alive. I thought it wouldn’t work well with the bad reviews about it, but people need to realize that it is possible.I’m not telling anyone how to do it, because I believe if you really want it you will figure it out yourself. If they nerf this further, then they might as well remove snipers from the game completely though. And with you saying, “Now it will be used correctly.” and stuff, its a game. If you haven’t noticed, there aren’t many good camping spots that are hard to reach or kill someone that is in it. The maps just don’t allow for hardscoping for minutes straight. Good game though overall. :D

    • jh2492

      spill the beans then

      • baggins

        I'll tell you how, variable scope second zoom, and use fast reactions to counter the immediate offset of your scope when you zoom in.

  • jh2492

    This is absolute bullshit. Anybody who claims that quickscoping isnt skill is simply incapable of doing it themselves. it is handsdown the hardest way to play the game and any twat who goes on about aim assit is in the same boat. Nobody can complain about realism either. if you wanted to play a 'realistic' game you dont buy cod you buy operation flashpoint!

  • tinyraver666

    Lol yeah, I say quick scoping is bull because I can't do it… epic fail. My three year old daughter could quick scope. the people who created the game will tell you that the reason you can quick scope is due to the aim assist present in the game, but of course you obviously know better.

    • JD_2020 sucks

      if aim assist was that good, everyone would hit all of there shots and you might as well call it aimbot. GROW A BRAIN and stop being a moron.

    • baggins

      Oh, so now Treyarch created MW2, I didn't know that LOL

      • tinyraver666

        @ baggins; no, but then I thought we were discussing black ops NOT MW2. ;) @ the other guy; I never said aim assist was "that good," but if quickscoping was all skill and no exploit, I daresay more players would be out quickscoping with lens attachments on other gun classes instead of posting illiterate flames on here under names like "JD_2020 sucks."

  • Half_A_Spoon

    Im getting really annoyed with people saying quickscoping isnt sniping. sniping means using a sniper rifle. Get that through your thick skulls. In all the time ive been playing black ops now, ive seen two people use a sniper. Ive also been asking people why they dont snipe at all, and this is what they said, "Why use a sniper rifle when you can aim quicker and better with an assault rifle?" this is getting a little ridiculous when you try to "use the sniper correctly" and you miss a shot, they turn around and your dead before you can pull off the next shot. They also defyed physics with the quickscope crosshair stuff. if the crosshair is up, the bullet should go there, not 2 ft to the right. Treyarch needs to pull their head out of their asses and realize this is a game, not real life (the crosshair thing actually made it less realistic).

  • tinyraver666

    Any idiot can pick up a sniper rifle, it doesn't make them a sniper. Sniping is done from long range and actually takes skill, quickscoping is usally done at much closer range and takes no skill whatsoever. Who cares if the game is less realistic, it wasn't realistic to begin with.

    • JD_2020 Sucks

      it takes no skill? oh really, so if 2 people 1v1d all one guy did was hardscope and all the other did was quickscope who the hell do you think would win? you dont get it, like all the other fools quickscoping isnt a play style its a tool.

      • tinyraver666

        Given the small size of the maps, obviously the quickscoper. TBH, the sniper class is pretty pointless in this game, but that doesn't change the fact that it takes it takes knowledge of the map, attention to the radar, knowing when to fire and when not to snipe effectively, it takes watching a few tuts on YouTube to quickscope.

  • upandatom

    quickscoping can still be achieved, just all the quick scopers need to work on there "skillz" and try qs without aim assist, then you can all tell us how "L33t" you are by qs without aim assist.

  • GriiXa

    I think black ops is the most unrealistic game I’ve evern played , Truth is realistic games are boring , and quick scoping is cool and mostly everyone likes it , I think Jodh Olin is a fucking newb and he got the D stain by all the snipers out there cuz he’s a bad kid random :)

  • Freakinwow

    You try to quickscope when everyone has an assault rifle, you’ll get raped, it’s just something to do other then the same ol’ thing. I don’t see how it’s cheap when it only brings you to a lower score.

    • JD_2020 likes boys

      it lowers your score if you suck.

      • baggins

        any quickscoper will tell you they can get better scores with assault rifles.

  • Hoooooooo

    I want to know why they've excluded snipers from SOHP and STILL left in the jumpy scope after zooming in, They can surely allow snipers to use SOHP, just the jumpy scope on its own is a big enough hinder to the technique. And serious lulz at the people calling it cheap and saying anybody can do it. Go and try it, I bet you can't quickscope. If you can't kill a quickscoper with your FULLY AUTOMATIC WEAPON then you need to take Call of Duty back to where you bought it and stop making it shitty for the rest of us.

  • Tryston

    man this is fucking bull shit, Quick scopeing should b returned. Quickscopeing takes seriouse reaction time and precition aiming. This takes way more skill than hard scopeing, and he call it “Cheap” man that dude is shit and doesnt know what the fuck hes talking about. Snipeing is no less cheap than fucking explosives. I think i made my point, any body wanna talk to me directly about this? Then contact me at

    • lost22

      dont compare quick scoping to explosives u clown im

      not saying cod is real but they use explosives in real life, u try and quick scope someone in real life and you’ll be six feet under, but to say explosives are cheap thats just an idiotic statement ( i dont agree with newb tube but thats part of war) and makes u sound dumb

  • ps3freak

    wow how can u guys say that about quick scoping i think quick scopin was the shit in mw2 black ops sucks with snipers they can be rite in front of u an kill u like nothing how lame is that you have no way in defending your self u suck TREYARCH :(

  • Ryan

    "Nope. Quickscoping is way more annoying to a way larger group of people than the quickscoping community who loves to do it." This is more of an OPINION then a fact. Quickscoping was the only way I ever had fun in MW2 or in COD4. It made the gun more entertaining, especially if you get a sick shot from across the map or a multi kill feed. For you anti-quickscopers who think that quickscoping is "unrealistic" you are being totally hypocritical. Games are meant to be semi-fantasy. It is NOT realistic to spawn after you die, it isn't realistic to be able to run around for long periods of time with all the equipment that you carry, but in a VIDEO GAME you can. Do NOT single out QUICKSCOPING as the only thing that is un-realistic in Call of Duty. I, personally, will do better in a match if I used a submachine or an assault rifle. Yet I CHOOSE to quickscope, because it's entertaining. Isn't that why most of us play video games? To be entertained. Why would Treyarch "gimp" quickscoping? As of now, playing black ops, I'm constantly finding myself BORED of just running around or camping with automatic weapons. Treyarch disabling the option for players to quickscope is just wrong. They need to fix this problem. Players should be able to choose to quickscope.

  • NIc

    The only gay thing about this is now snipers wont be able to kill people running straight at them with an assault rifle as there wont be enough time to hardscope them when there already shooting at you, hardscoping is fine but its almost impossible to kill someone running directly at you if all you can do is hardscope and not quick scope them.

  • John

    In all the time ive played CoD ive never heard someone complain or call me a noob because i quick scope, Most people think its awesome, normal close range quick scopes dont take skill but 360s and noscopes do. I personally think that this is bs. Also why take out quick scoping when you just made theater mode, all you gona get are thousands of little kids videos of knifes, campers and noobs. Thanks trearch for taking out the only cool thing in the game

  • Bob

    Treyarch you shame me :/ you band QS why? give a really good explanation on why you band it? How is it cheap? people like doing it, its fun and you took that away from us your just evil. Why didn't you just removed the grenade launcher that was a more pain in the ass than ever. You say you want it to be more realistic then take all the other bull s**t out of the game keep the real skill in it. fair play you disappointed me in making this game….

  • jyak

    Treyarch, you removed the QS, since you say a larger group complain about it, fine. but why don´t you find out by your own means if QS is a CHEAP way to play. Have you try it?, because if you had, you will have realize that it is harder to learn it than just run around aim and shoot. It took me around 3 months to learn it and still I am not good as others but it just need practice and practice, if people complain about it just because they got killed a few times by quickscopers, it is because they are noobs and don´t know how to play, otherwise why they don´t try to learn ti to see if it is cheap. You said you gimp QS in black ops, but we find out a way to do it, it is not the same as in others COD. but now I think people will complain a lot more, since i can not be running around with the sniper, I just place myself in a good and high spot, place a Mine to avoid enemies and start quickscoping with the variable zoom, a get less kills since I am camping, but trust me my averga is always around 9 kills 1 dead. Why don´t you take a look into the COD community to see how people will start to complain about it now. Will these go on to a point where you will remove sniper guns from COD?

  • joshua

    well why would they want to stop quickscoping if you dont want to quickscope thats your choice dont do it and mess it up for all the other players quickscoping is something that
    has a fun fealing about it i think if they just got rid of the nube tube that would make it kool
    ps just becuse you guys cant quickscope doesnt mean its not kool

  • lost22

    idk why everyone is crying bout treyarch not wanting no scoping in black ops obviously they dont care about losing u no scoping fags or they would have kept it in the game hahahah, to the no scoping community u should all be happy because as far as im concerned all no scoping did was show the cod community that u are all virgins (no scopers) and have nothing better to do then get those “awesome” 360 no scopes. im sure half of u no scopers are probably nuke boosters too im actually surprised u guys arent crying about that as well, and if any of u try n tell me im just mad cuz i cant quick scope i can it took two seconds to learn n its friggin stupid, and heres an idea as to why the game might be boring to some of u, because u spend every second u have trying to be the best u can be in a video game but the fact is its a VIDEO GAME GET A LIFE AND FIND BETTER THINGS To DO THEN BITCH AND CRY, and heres an idea if u dont like no scoping not being in black ops make your own video game then u can center the whole game on 1080 no scopes thatd be so much fun ha! heres to you no scoping toolbags and i think i speak for the rest of the black ops community when i say we sure dont miss any of u no scopers :)

    • Derp

      You realise that noscoping and quick scoping are two very different things?

  • That Guy

    Quick scoping is the thing most of me and my friends love MW2. And so what if some people think it does not take skill, neither does running around with a machine gun or camping or noobtubing. And I have played against quick scopers , and it is not difficult to kill them.

  • anthony valen

    your all mad cause you get quick scoped its a skill and no its not bad trey arch needs to find someone else with there ideals on how a game should be and how it should be played i still play mw2 why cuase its more fast paced i bet you all think that nuking is for boosters too huh? well get over it theres some of us who are just better

    I think it's bullshit, Aim assist doesn't do a thing for quickscoping, my accuracy would be 98% otherwise. Quickscoping is just something I do for fun, Not that I'm the best at it, it's just something that takes skill, Josh Olin is just annoyed because the dumb prick can't do it himself. Not cheap at all, you know what's cheap? Banning something simply because it annoys you that you can't do it… Why not take out noob tubes? Treyarch = Geyarch = Retards.

    I think that the removal of quickscoping is stupid. You people say you like the fact that it's gone because it makes the game 'More Reaslistic'? What about sleight of hand or Ninja,???. Stuff that….. ALL THE PERKS! And getting killstreak rewards, I mean wtf? Last stand & painkiller, Pretty sure when you shoot someone in the face with a full magazine they die >.>
    Hitmarkers? I shouldn't even haveto explain it. THE WHOLE EFFING COD SERIES IS COMPLETELY UNREALISTIC. So try coming up with a better excuse.
    Also, Aim assist does not do a thing for quickscopers -.-, So don't try and use that excuse either. The only reason it's been taken out is because everyone at Geyarch *COUGHS* jOSH OLIN *COUGHS* Couldn't quicksope to save their own lives. The only reason you donut punching fudge packers are glad quickscoping is 'Gone is because you's wouldn't have a chance of doing it yourselves. The End….

    Haha! Keep crying failscopers!!! Good riddance!

  • Only Use Knife

    Actually, black ops will have far more entertaining montages due to the Ballistic Knife. I've already recorded a B-knife kill from the Tower in array, – Only Use Knife

  • Only Use Knife

    The only thing that would make this game better, would be to add realistic sniping environments. Lead is already in the game, Lag, Drop, Terminal Ballistics. All that good stuff.

  • dual optic

    i think that quick scoping is the best and i want it back on black ops

  • Jerome

    I say that they have 2 different servers on black ops for PS3 and Xbox360 and PC!

    One that doesnt allow you to QuickScope and One that DOES allow you to quickScope, thus we be saved all this Drama!

    Your all sad, every single one of you. Stop crying about CoD and go and do something with your lives. Grow up

    I really think that its not good they took out quickscoping. In the military you can quickscope with a sniper rifle. It is good because ok I have a sniper do you think a crappy ass pistol is ginna kill a guy with a assault rifle before he kills me? Hell no so I quickscope him. Quickscoping has alot of videos on youtube so youtube is ginna loose videos and treyarch is ginna loose money.

  • ImmuneDegree

    the fact that they remove it is gay as AIDS. but I don't care since i am finding i can still do it anyway. either way quickscoping is a lot harder than aim assist. I can quickscope friendlies and there is no way that is due to aim assist. anyway anyone who thinks quickscoping is something you can learn overnight, you are a fagbag. it takes alot of practice and improves your skill at other areas of the game such as reaction time with an assault rifle, but hey if you wanna try it be my guest.

  • Immune Degree

    quickscoping is a lot harder than you guys apparently think. it's more than just scope in and let aim assist do the work. if that was it why can i quickscope teamates in private matches? but anyway if you were good enough in MW2 you can still quickscope relatively well in black ops. i have already done it in multiple matches, private and not private.

    the reason we play games is because they aren’t 100% realistic which makes em fun and why isn’t it real the reason that the guns have a scope is to show where your aiming

  • Coolstorybrah

    Apart from my quote, I agree that insane long range quickscoping is just pure bull–it.
    The close range ones are 'fine' as long as it's not spammed ( It's unrealistic to let a bullet go in an angle of 90 degrees while aiming forward, no-scoping.).

    But really, snipers can be campers too, just don't call every sniper a camper in Black Ops, thanks.

  • Chris

    to me i think that even though quick scoping is banned people will b more pressured into modding the game for auto aim or aimbot

  • cobras71396

    evrybody that says quiscoping is unrealistic is right but only partially…this is a game of course it is unrealistic thats what it was inteded for was to have fun with it….. im also not defending the community that quick scopes i think that quckscoping is stupid but thats onlybecause it is so frusterating to see a killcam where you get killed by a person who quickscopes you… but on the other end it is fun to watch final killcams be an amazing kill with a quck scope or no scope i hav my share of accidental quickscopes in CoD my most recent one is on you tube…. my account on you tube is TrueGamerTags so if you wanna check out some fun quickscopes check my channel out…. although quickscoping is not dead in call of duty black ops it is just a little bit harder to do…

    the only thing i dont like about sinpers in cod, and in any other game for that instance. is the hip fire, a sniper is very accurate in hip fire tried this with an R700 at the local shooting range. hit the target from 50 meters. not as hard as in cod :D

    Exuse me for bad english

    This is my quick scope montage

  • James sherbert

    If quickscoping is in a game u can use it just like how u can use guns, perks, nube tubes and hacks
