Sniper is suppose to dominate long range, Which is the entire point of a SNIPER. Don't bring up the very flawed point of "It's a high skill cannon LOLOLOL". It's still a sniper, and now you have to actually use it where it's most effective.
Get over it, It's fair that a Sniper would need a CQC weapon. Since, Well.. Not even going to bother. This whole topic is so derp.
/Coming from someone who uses a sniper.
Oh, Em, Gee.

I love how CoD has made quick scoping a trend. One of the reasons I didnt buy MW3 was because they brought quick scoping back. Lame as F***.
A sniper is supposed to be slow and steady.
Do you have good moxy?
Thats why the American government is so awesome because they run around quick scoping all the terrorists in our world. Yep.
It's not the games fault that you would rather die than change weapons when the situation needs it.

I use the bow when I snipe so this doesn't effect me.
But I WAS thinking about trying the buc out.
But if it means that, when I see a guy with the huntsman, bearstalker, partisan etc. in the distance at the same time he sees me. And he can take aim and start shooting me while I have to wait for my guns damage to change, then that is a disadvantage. At long range..
It just seems like so many are jumping on the bandwagon to prevent a gun from being effective at close range that they don't notice they're making it less effective at long range.
Thanks though. That weapon unlock goes elsewhere.
Second, the gatekeeper and most other weapons don't even need a scope on them to take out long range targets because all you need to do is burst fire the weapon to make it effective in a range it wasn't meant for... sound familiar? Thats because burst firing a CQC weapon is the EXACT same thing as quickscoping with a sniper. It's a technique used by players to extend their weapons effectiveness into ranges that they are not meant for.
Basically all this patch did was take away the snipers dominance of long ranges, made it a mediocre medium range weapon, and a useless close range weapon. While weapons like the gatekeeper and jackhammer continue to dominate the playing field because they are very viable weapons at all ranges. The only viable sniping weapon is the BearStalker, because it can be used at all ranges effectively by a skilled player, and even that cant dent a tanked mighty with a jackhammer.
