T/L D/R fully, too many sniper threads as it is. Everybody is free to use snipers as they like, IW is the one that could balance them better.
To me a good cod sniper does it all. If he is a stationary player, so be it, I prefer to be an active player myself which is too hard on these maps, as is sniping in general as there are not many sniping spots, yet it's clearly to easy with quickdraw and this little sway too. More open maps, no quickdraw ads speed, would be ideal for this game.
btw IW said to bring back qsing with quickdraw too, thus people really should not be whining this much, this is what you should have expected buying the game in the first place. Though for people that played black ops as their first cod, this must be hell.

I started of with the run'n'gun-smg/ar style of play. But I find myself wanting to more support my teammates for the moment in TDM/KC/Dom matches. So I play the counter-sniper/designated marksman game and as such most of my matches to the effect of having kills in the in the upper 10's to low 20's and deaths in the 5 or less category.
And that is probably why I get so damn flipping irritated at the QS-glitch, albeit intentional or unintentional on the part of IW. It sort of sets me on edge that a class of my choosing should not be skillful to learn, i.e. patience of selecting targets, stationary and mobile, and planning lines of fire, rather than the hop, skip, jump, spin bullcrap thing of QS.
Snipingdbag raises a fair point in some other posts of his that it is the combination of factors such aim assist plus smg style-ads that causes a general imbalance of the sniperclass, but one that I have over the past 48 hours found myself having to accept via "blunt force trauma" due to the ignorance of IW of not balancing out the power of sniperweapons vs game mechanics.

Big Duke I love this post. Thank you for the definition it really was fun to read. Actually that's exactly how I played my entire prestige 1. This time around (4) I told myself I would do stealth specialist only, but I really miss sniping; even more after I read this.
As a sniper I am sick and tired of the whining about QSing. I literally never run into them. And when I do they suck. Ppl need to understand if u start screwing w the sniper ads you also screw our ability to hit longer range targets, which move out of the way even more quickly. Blops did a little jiggle, sucked big time esp for long range targets. The same thing will happen if u slow down ads. It would be a serious handicap and I am glad iw brought back integrity to the rifle.
