Cod4 Again What is Sniping

Holl4nder February 10, 2011 User blog:Holl4nder

Ever since Black Ops came out I've been veering away more and more from sniping. But when I downloaded Cod 4 ( I lost my previous copy when Black Ops came out) and picked that M40A3 back up, I remembered how much fun Sniping was. Then I started thinking what actually is a snipers role?

Treyarch tried to make it that snipers are camping hardscopers who pick people off from across the map.

Here are some ways they did that:

  1. They trie to get rid of quick scoping - by changing the zoom in offset.
  2. They created non sniper friendly maps - short lanes and lots of corners.
  3. They got rid of Faster ADS on Slight of Hand - Slight of Hand pro is not only harder to get in this game but the pro version gives you faster ADS time just not on snipers.
  4. This last one might just be me but - Sniper rifles seem to be a lot more clunkyer and harder to run with.

This Is why I'm playing Cod 4 and even MW2 more. There was no reason to get rid of agressive sniping, sure it could get a little annoying but it takes (took) skill. They fixed TacKnife / Commando pro (kind of) - that didn't take much skill. They haven't got rid of n00b t00bs, it doesn't seem right to keep something that garunteses a kill and get rid of something that is hard and takes practice.
