This guide is for those people who think they are good at sniping, hiding in corners or places far away from the action, as a sniper should. However COD is all about the quick scoping, if you have ever played as a sniper then you will have either tried quick scoping, or encountered an enemy at close range and been killed because you can’t quick scope, and you were too stupid to pull out your secondary weapon.
Quick scoping is not that hard, it just needs a bit of practice, which could be done against bots. soon enough you will be a quick scoping legend posting videos on youtube of you 360 no scoping on the final kill cam.
The MW3 quick scoping class:
This is up to preference really, but generally you are going to need to use a sniper rifle, more specifically a bolt action sniper rifle (either the L118A or the MSR). The L118A is the better sniper rifle for this, and is probably my favourite sniper on the game. This sniper is better than the others as it allows you to move quicker and aim faster than the other sniper rifles.
The scope you should use is the variable scope, as then you can zoom in to the second zoom and that will allow you to get the recital right onto the enemy. However the normal zoom is quite good for quick scoping, again it is up to preference.
The best secondary weapon is again akimbo FMG9 akimbo. This is the secondary weapon that you should ALWAYS use. This is the best secondary weapon and nothing will beat these bad boys. Also it is good if you are either first starting out on quick scoping and can’t kill the one enemy quick enough, or you have run out of ammo on your sniper.
If you really want to look good, the only choice you have for this is the throwing knife. it is a quick kill if the enemy gets too close, and it is a good feeling when you get a throwing knife kill, and if you get the long range throwing knife on the final kill cam it looks amazing.
Flash bangs or concussion grenades are the only choice here. They are really the only good tactical grenades available, and they give you that little bit extra time to quick scope.
This is one of the most important aspects of quick scoping on mw3. If you want the advantage against other quick scopers or CQC SMG’s then you have to choose the correct perks
Perk 1: Slight of hand pro is essential here, especially if you are not confident enough to get into the action or you need to reload your sniper just as an enemy walks around the corner, that way you can swap quickly to your FMG9s and destroy your enemy in no time.
Perk 2: Quick draw pro is the most essential perk and no quick scopers should go without this perk. This allows 50% quicker aim and quicker recovery from equipment.
Perk 3: Steady aim pro is again essential. This allows you to aim down the sights quicker after running and increases hip fire accuracy in case you need to use your akimbo FMG9s.
How to Quick Scope in MW3:
If you are reading this you have obviously tried quick scoping before, and it has either gone completely wrong and you have died many times trying it, or you have got one or two kills and want to get better at it.
What you need to do is PRACTICE. I know this sound obvious but that’s what you have to do. All those youtube videos you have seen is from people trying the same thing over and over again until they have got that final kill cam. But there are a few pointers which can help you become a quick scoping master and get all those youtube views.
Practice against bots on easy first, this is the best way to become a master quickly.
When you first start out quick scoping use the end of the barrel to gauge when you aim and shoot. This is the best method on when to quick scope. as soon as your barrel comes close to an enemy that is when you quick scope. If you can gauge when your barrel will hit that enemy then you will become a master in no time.
If you have set your scope to the second zoom level it is basically impossible to miss, and then when you have got good at this against bots, you can speed up the process and not even have to look fully down the sight, and just quickly tap the aim button and shoot. Then you may even be able to no scope and then you will be one of the best. As snipers on MW3 are mostly one shot you will be unstoppable.
