Quick-scoping is something that players use quite often in multiplayer, and although it can be seen as something good from experienced players, it can also be quite frustrating for casual players.
In an interview with 3 News, Michael Condry, Sledgehammer Games' co-funder, stated that the development team is working hard to make sure that the classes are balanced and that players can't exploit auto-aim. "Let me put it this way, sniper classes are not going to be overpowered relative to their peers. The ability to master a sniper rifle and be great at it will be equal to the ability to master any other class," said Condry.
"We've done some things to make sure snipers are not able to take advantage of their properties "“ for example, there are attachments based on weapon classes that are specific. The ability to quick-draw with an assault rifle is important, but you don't want to have the ability to quick-draw with a sniper rifle because that lends itself to being a faster, quick-scope model.
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare launches for PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC on the 4th of November worldwide. Those that pre-order the game will get access to the game's Zero Day edition, giving players the opportunity to starting playing the game one day before launch.
