Sniper Rifles Are Not Going to Be Overpowered - Quick-Scoping Removed?
October 14, 2014
During an interview with 3 News NZ, Sledgehammer Games' co-founder Michael Condrey confirmed that they have made the Sniper class in the game more balanced, when compared to previous titles in the series.
Although sniper rifles can one-shot an enemy, Condrey said that they are not going to be overpowered. Mastering a sniper rifle in COD: AW requires the same dedication and skill as with other weapon classes. Condrey heavily emphasized that they have removed attachments that allow sniper rifles to be quick-drawn, which hints that quick-scoping has been somewhat removed from the game.
And to make things more balanced, the new Exo Abilities, like boost jumping and dodging, allow players to move faster than ever before, which should put pressure on even the most proficient sniper.
