Right from the start, quickscoping is overpowered in Black Ops Cold War‘s multiplayer. It’s easy to do and the accuracy is pretty forgiving. So that you can join the legions of players doing it, here’s everything you need to know about how to quickscope in Black Ops Cold War.
First off, it’s important to know what quickscoping is. To do it, you need to aim down the sights of a sniper and shoot before you’ve fully aimed in. It’s essentially aiming and shooting in one quick motion, allowing you to get kills before the enemy has had the chance to react and take you out.
It helps you be a little bit more accurate with your sniper shots too, without having to waste the time aiming fully. It has been a thing in Call of Duty for a long time, stretching back to the M40A3 sniper with an ACOG Scope back in the Call of Duty 4 days.
How to Quickscope in Black Ops Cold War
As we said, the actual action of quickscoping in Black Ops Cold War is just you shooting while you’re aiming with a sniper, there’s nothing more to it than that. That being said, there are things you can do to make it a little easier and more likely to be successful.
The first thing to say is that a lot of it is down to practice. When you first head into a game with the plan of trying to quickscope opponents, you’ll miss a lot of your attempts.
Just as is the case with shooting generally in the game, you’ll improve as you do it more, as you learn the intricacies of it. Over time, it’ll become muscle memory and you’ll be getting it right a lot more regularly.
The other thing that we’d recommend doing is choosing a sniper that you feel comfortable with and adding attachments that improve certain things.
In Black Ops Cold War, you can do it with any sniper, and it will be good to equip things like stocks that improve speed stats and sights that aren’t the standard long range ones.
In essence, though, it’s best to just tinker with the game’s different options until you get one that feels good to you and then practice with it as much as you can.
