A Quickscope is a close quarters technique/tactic which was generally an expliot at first. It is utilized by many gamers in Close Proximity with another player to Frag them, aka kill them. It was born in 1999 in a PC FPS game that is still bery popular known as Counter-Strike. The tactic is now used by many other games including Halo, Gears of War, Day of Defeat, Battlefield, & Call of duty. Most players now that do this technique over use it and call out other players that do not use the tactic when sniping.
Most Call of duty Quickscopers only use the sniper rifle for this tactic because they think they are famous over youtube, or that being an on a youtube channel with a number next to their name makes them notorious. Other fps gamers do this technique for fun or when they are under pressure i.e Clutching a game while using a sniper rifle the old traditional way. They do not overuse it they do not boast about them being better than others when doing it, they just play like any other normal gamer.
Quickscoping should not be an excuse for gamers to think they are better and more skilled than other players just because they have a new style of sniping.
