After playing a couple of rounds of MW2 today it hit me. Not some profound, koan-esque personal truth, not the secret of life or any of that shit.
QuickScoper bullets. They tend to hit everyone. A lot.
What happened was this. I was playing in a standard Free for All, and was listening into a couple of underage douchebags. Unfortunately, this is the most common type you'll run into on XBL. I really hope it's not the same for other platforms.
Either way, the two are pretty much frothing with rage over some guy that's at 2:1 (kicking their ass) and using the terrain against them. The reason? He was "noob-tubing."
Now while I believe that Danger Close + Noob Tubing is a shitty way to play, and borderline "hax" I put up with it and carry on with playing, finding another class of mine that's specifically suited for that kind of threat. If I don't have a class that'll work against them, I make one during the next intermission.
But fuck that noise. I can't fucking STAND quickscoping.
Now I really don't care what your outlook on it is, though you're more than welcome to post it, but my opinion (read - FACT) is that quickscoping is bullshit. Anyone that does it for any other reason than as a means of retaliation against boosters or other quickscopers is only further perpetuating this fucking fallacy that it's a legitimate tactic. FYI, I was using the term "tactic" very loosely.
For anyone that might consider posting "umad" you're fucking right. I'm tired of people claiming OH TAC KNIFE + COMMANDO? OH YOURE COOL or replace any gun/attachment combo with complimenting perk and you have every possible combo that these shit-herders could possibly try to use as reasoning for their bullshit "tactic."
Also, person owning them was me lawl.
