an once cool/badass technique used by gamer's in the days where kids played pokemon or some other shit.
but since the mw2'ish days it have become widely popular, and now every little kid now knows this technique, this would be fine if you didnt have to hear them complain about you "hardscoping" and them telling how much 1337 skill they have, these fags tend to use mods like aimbot and prestige hacks.
conclusion:quickscoping is actually a cool way to play the game, its not skilled nor is it non skilled. just dont brag about it and complain about others style of playing the game

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.
A 1 second zoom in of a scope with any type of high powered rifle.

Gamer 2: yeah he and his friends have been doing them non-stop, I think they are overrated.

When a person plays Call of Duty too long and develops a nervous "twitch" and cannot aim in correctly while using a sniper.

They often think they are 'more skilled' than all the other players, and are quite full of themselves.

A technique of aiming with a sniper rifle that was born in the Call of Duty franchise. The idea is to position your opponent in the middle of your screen and then proceed to shoot your sniper rifle just as your character brings the scope up to their view, hence a "quickscope". The advantage being that your accuracy is not affected by sway and is much more reliable than a no scope.
I was caught off guard up close by my opponent but I whipped around and nailed a quickscope just before he killed me.

A popular exploit of a glitch in some FPS video games wherein a player is able to scope in with a sniper rifle, shoot for a kill, then scope out almost instantly and without having to ensure the crosshairs are on the target. Gamers who have become dependent on the QS exploit for success have lobbied hard to developers, pleading that the QS should be kept in the game because it constitutes a 'style of play'. They base this contention for the most part on the notion that (by some accounts) it takes practice to become skilled at QS, though critics point out that the amount of practice it takes to master an exploit is hardly a good argument for keeping a glitch. The QS exploit is also popular because it easily allows for long kill-streaks and unlikely kills which more self-indulgent gamers in the community produce in montages for each other.
Oh man, it's completely unrealistic and contrary to the spirit of the game, but I've gotten very good at running around exploiting the quickscope glitch for fast, easy kills.

A Quick scope was born from the Call Of Duty and Halo franchises. The idea is to pull in your scope and shoot at the moment you see your crosshairs. this can be useful in combat because a skilled player may be able to pull this off and get accurate, one-shot kills. This is normally for show and is not the best way to play unless you want to impress others by making videos or compilations. Machinima.com is a great place to find these montages and skill in Quickscoping.
Dude 1: Wow he's so good at quickscoping
Dude 2: Yeah you aim in quickly at watches the enemy on the scope and triggers as soon as you aim in.
