Blackscoping In Advanced Warfare is Worse Than Quickscoping

For quite awhile, the topic of “quickscoping” in the Call of Duty series has been a toxic one. Fans of the series seem to be divided on the issue, but each developer in the franchise has seemingly worked to reduce its effectiveness.

If you thought “quickscoping” was frustrating, you won’t enjoy what you’re about to see. It appears that a new technique, called “blackscoping”, has emerged in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.

As the video above describes, players are able to fire within the first few frames of scoping-in on their sniper rifle to shoot a perfectly straight shot. This works at any distance or length, but seems to be most effective in close range. If you weren’t a fan of sniping in Modern Warfare 2, then things are going to get a bit frustrating for you in Advanced Warfare.

We’ve yet to hear from Sledgehammer regarding the issue, but it’ll be interesting to see how they address the issue. The issue seems to be caused by the traditional sway on sniper rifles not showing up within the first 2-3 frames, so it’s definitely a possibility that it’s a bug that could be patched.

Have you encountered anyone using this method yet? Are you still playing Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare? Be sure to let us know what you think by leaving us a comment below!

            Bored, no. Self-aware-type-of-self-conscious? Yes.

            ‘Self-conscious’ as a comeback from you as if I have something to worry over? Makes no sense, I told you to lose weight, there’s no indication that I have any self-conscious issues/self-esteem issues. Nor do I, but if grasping at straws makes you feel better. Be my guest – this however, is my last comment since I can see this will steadily go downhill to a mudslinging competition to stroke your insecurities 😛

      Why is it click bait? I thought it was informative because I hadn’t heard it before.

      • Tyler McCartney

        Its click bait because this has been basically the same for every Cod released since MW2. Either snipe black quick scope. Just repeated stuff over and over. Funny thing is people actually think quick scoping is a bad thing. Cod was actually fun when you could have private lobbies all day long on MW2 and quick scope. But now they have ruined it.

    It’s guys like this that keep me, happily, not near this game.

    uncharted 3 had this and you can do it while running forward and someone is behind you … not everything revolves around COD.
