Quickscoping ‘gimped’ in Call of Duty: Black Ops

If you were a fan of Modern Warfare 2‘s Sleight of Hand’ Perk, then you might want to rethink your strategy. Treyarch has confirmed that “quickscoping” will have its nuts ripped out in Call of Duty: Black Ops, eliminating one of the game’s less hacksome cheap tricks. 

“Quickscoping is a cheap way to play,” tweets Treyarch communiy bod Josh Olin. “We’re specifically going to gimp Quickscoping, sorry. Play straight-up!”

Quickscoping is where a player uses Sleight of Hand in conjunction with the game’s auto-aim in order to achieve a slightly less than earned amount of precision. It was the bane of many a CoD player’s existence and its gimpage ought to make quite a few people happy. 

It won’t please the Quickscopers, of course, but screw those guys with a rusty spanner.
