Snipers confirmed for Titanfall, but quick-scoping and no-scoping are "ineffective"
Respawn says sniping in upcoming online shooter is a "pretty different animal" compared to other military shooters.
Like most military shooters, Titanfall will feature sniper rifles. But the way these weapons work in the game will vary drastically from what players have come to expect in Call of Duty or Battlefield games, Respawn said on the game's forums recently.
"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," a Respawn representative said. "Quick-scoping and no-scoping are ineffective."
Quick-scoping and no-scoping are methods by which players can dramatically increase their fire rate and lethality by manipulating the way virtual rifles work. It's not clear, however, what systems Respawn has in place for Titanfall to make no-scoping and quick-scoping ineffective.
Answers are likely to come soon, as Titanfall's March 11 launch date is just three months away now. For more on Titanfall, check out GameSpot's previous coverage.
