I played a few other COD games a while ago and the sniper rifles were pretty bad. Now they seem even more useless in this game. Any other gun or so can be equally effective or better at long range. Guns in this game basically have no recoil. Are sniper rifles some sort of joke weapon? You use them just for the added challenge?

Donno about that, played a kc match at Morocco last night where this guy made koshka f***ing sing. Was beautiful.

Turned on my mic just to compliment the guy haha.

Literally couldn't stick your head out. Close match. We were pushing that covered area at the top of the big staircase from both sides, capped 4 guys by himself before I pegged him.

Just came out of a match on Casino where I got cross mapped with an AK-47 going full auto. I had an Outlaw but the flinch was so severe that I had no chance before the fight had even begun.
I'm not actually Evanz111.
Sorry for stealing your name. ^-^

Snipers scope-up very quickly, have generous aim assist, and are among the only guns in the game capable of OHKs at any range. (doesn't have to be a headshot, either) They are about the closest you can get to using a specialist weapon without actually using one lol

I wouldn't really call them useless. I've seen my fair share of snipers do damage and I, myself, have been s*** on by people who I assume do nothing but snipe. Also snipers have never really been bad, non-snipers have been complaining since COD 4: MW about how they get outgunned by snipers. The only COD that had sniper rifles balanced and fair was Black Ops 1 and even then there were people who could wield them and do damage; Again people who, most likely, do nothing but sniping.

When I snipe they may seem "useless" but when I go against true snipers I can see how deadly they can be in the right hands.

Da f***??? Paladin is good af....sdm...
Paladin was rated by old cod tubers as the best of the series. AND it got a buff recently.
Its the only class capable of penta kills with no reload.

God knows i hate to say this but git gud.

You cant simply pick a weapon and expect 30 kills.

Or did you come from ww2? There you can quickscope af with lee seinfeld.

It took me weeks to get used to the abr.

PS: is this a bait??
Shut up fatso. <- got moderated for this. Long live gamefaqs and its snowflakes.
