Nothing makes my blood boil more than getting popped off by someone who thinks they have ‘skills’ by doing a 360 degree ‘no scope’ on Call of Duty. It’s probably one of my biggest erks about modern shooters which in reality if someone tried to ‘no scope’ or ‘quick scope’ they’d probably lose an eye. Though in Respawn Entertainment’s upcoming futuristic military shooter, Sniping is a little different than you’d expect and this gimmicky tricks won’t work.

Titanfall is one of the many games I’m looking forward to playing in 2014, now more than ever. Developed by Respawn Entertainment – which is made up of a bunch of ex-Call of Duty developers – you’d probably expect the game to include some sort of silly Sniping mechanic which those players desperate for ‘thumbs up’ on their ‘quick scoping’ montage on YouTube will go weak at the knees for – but apparently not.

In a recent post on the Website’s forum a Respawn rep by the name of scriptacus wrote:

“Sniping is in the game, but due to how the game plays it’s a pretty different animal than you’ll find in your run of the mill modern military shooter. Quick scoping and no scoping are ineffective.”
Sadly there’s no more information explaining how Sniping is a “pretty different animal”. Hopefully it’s a statement based on a more realistic shooting mechanic and not based on the quick movements of players and Titans making quick scoping and no scoping ineffective.
Titanfall is set to launch on Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC on March 14, 2014.
Rant aside, what are your thoughts on Quick Scoping and No Scoping, what about Snipers in video games in general?
