I'm not a sniper, and I have nothing against people who like to snipe, so that's not where I am going with this. Aside from MW3, I have played all the COD's quite a bit since COD 4 (quite possibly still the best of the bunch). I don;t recall ever having so many people being able to freely run the map, with the full sniper scope attached (as opposed to say, ACOG), and insta-snipe. Have people just gotten that good at using the sniper rifles, or has something changed making this more doable? I find it creates an imbalance to have so many people be able to run with a sniper rifle as if it were an AR, and yet have across-the-map type range. If it's purely skill, than hats off to them, but I suspect there must be something more to it for the bulk of these people. There are just too many people who do it, and in COD4, WaW, MW2, or BO1, I simply don't recall this happening (certainly not with such prevalence) so I have to believe something has changed. Perhaps not. Thoughts?
