Titanfall sniping confirmed, shunts quickscoping and no-scoping

New, 75 comments

Respawn Entertainment's Titanfall will feature sniping bar the effectiveness of quickscoping and no-scoping techniques, Respawn developer "scriptacus" wrote on the company's forums.

"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," the representative wrote.

Quickscoping is the practice of firing a sniper rifle when the reticle lines up with the target instead of taking aiming down the rifle's scope. No-scoping refers to firing a sniper rifle without using its scope.
