Oh and how do you quick scope on this game? There is no CoD "hold your breath" button. Just aim and shoot fast? That's not quick scoping. That's judo being quick and accurate. Actual quick scoping is a flaw in the aim assist in most games. Does this have one I don't know about. That slow figure 8 pattern doesn't seem to lend itself to quick scoping.

Nah, I know what you're talking about blitz. Headshots are weird sometimes, I've had them register as body shots all too often. It's most common when I hit them in the teeth, which for whatever reason I seem to have a 50/50 chance of either landing a headshot or a body shot. Doesn't happen to often but can really throw off your groove Smiley Sad

Yep^

And since I don't run around with the HR (as I am not skilled enough, to pull off quick kills with it), I have a one shot window. If I miss or only hit the body, they are typically out of my line of sight before I can reload.

Whoa, ok I thought it was just me that this happens to. It makes me wonder if I have to stay on the target's head longer or what. I might just start aiming higher or something...

Maybe it's cause there's less lag or player movement is slower...

But, the  quickscoping seems much easier in this game than COD!

It also seems like the scope is a headshot magnet? Headshots are definitely easier.  (FPS vs TPS)

I had a hilarious game using only the Military Sniper headshots everywhere! The reaction of the players in my party & opp team cpmbined with the feeling of immense power is awesome! Every shot really does count.

It only takes one headshot to save your teammate from being downed or executed. A single shot can win a game.

Made me feel superpowered!

 Quit sniping and TLOU after that *yawns*

 

EDIT: Haven't used Sharpshooter much... Anything before SS3 sems like a waste anyway?

The only time I'm denied a headshot like that is when they're facing in my direction and aiming their gun. Makes me think I shoot their outward hand or something.

The military sniper has auto-aim, combine that with SS3 and you'll barely miss a shot.
Also I found out something else. If you don't use SS3 with the HR you're 3x more likely to lose long range gun fights with other rifles that have SS3

^This^ It has too much auto aim in my opinion.

Auto aim? You mean aim assist?

Aim assist, that's the word I was looking for.
If the Military Sniper had autoaim people would be raging to infinity.
