quick scoping is what makes the game. also it gives snipers the advantage that they can have a super long rang weapon but till be able to shoot someone while on the move. and i two more days til it comes out!
And that shit ain't balanced. Snipers are supposed to have a huge advantage at long range, but have to rely on their not-as-powerful sidearms at close range. It's bullshit to make them awesome at both ranges (at least, with the same weapon). My assault rifle is alright at all ranges, but I'm probably going to get owned by a sniper at long range, or a shotgun at close range, and that's how it should be.
