not a nerd just currently unemployed and put way, way to many hours into starhawk. But hey its the only game i've been consistantly playing for the past year so at least i got decently good at it in all areas of the game.
On nerds like durant and arvada, yes it does. Just hopping all around aint enough. You have to do the right manuvers, movements, check clip size, cuz reloading can mean getting killed. This post applies to the rifle and Shotgun only. Rocket Launchers are still for noobs
Saying Snap Aim = Skill is like saying ABS braking systems = Skill to anyone into racing cars......yeah give me that traction control, now I'm a real beast racer LOL.
Sorry I don't think snap aim takes skill, I pull the aim button and the game moves my recticle for me, not hard.
