Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare balance “quick-scoping” with Exoskeletons

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare balance “quick-scoping” with Exoskeletons

We all love watching those kill-streak videos of Call of Duty where quick-scoping is used, that said   I’ve never been able to master the art of quickly looking through the scope of a sniper rifle, snapping off a shot, and then immediately switching back to a normal view.

While it’s common in many online shooters, including previous Call of Duty releases, Sledgehammer co-founder Michael Condrey says the studio is taking steps to reduce the tactic in Advanced Warfare. Sledgehammer’s focus for multiplayer is ensuring that skill, not an “overpowered create-a-class,” will determine the outcome of online battles, so that someone who’s perfected playing as a sniper will be on equal footing with other players who have developed comparable skills with assault rifles or shotguns.

“Sniper classes are not going to be overpowered relative to their peers. The ability to master a sniper rifle and be great at it will be equal to the ability to master any other class,” – Sledgehammer co-founder Michael Condrey

“We’ve done some things to make sure snipers are not able to take advantage of their properties—for example, there are attachments based on weapon classes that are specific. The ability to quick-draw with an assault rifle is important, but you don’t want to have the ability to quick-draw with a sniper rifle because that lends itself to being a faster, quick-scope model.”

The addition of exoskeletons will also be a balancing factor. “I’m sure people will get really proficient with snipers, but you’ve got more ways to move and can move faster than ever before,” Condrey said. “Catching a person in the air with a sniper rifle, I think that will be very challenging, but very satisfying.”
