Sniper Rifles

Sniping is quite the controversial topic in the Call of Duty community, with insults being handed out freely from both sides of the so-called 'Quickscoping' debacle. Whether you're a fan of old-school sniping or quickscoping (do we capitalize the 'q'?), sniping has more than earned its way into every good Call of Duty debate.

Quickscopers argue that the act of using your long-range rifle accurately in close quarters is one of great skill, taking hours of practice before you can do little more than make a fool of yourself. On the other side of the coin, you have classic snipers that believe that quickscoping is little more than taking advantage of a fundamental flaw in game design. 

The arguments for both sides are valid and you can rest assured that we won't be taking sides, you hardscoping noob.

Sniper Rifles are traditionally heavier than assault rifles or submachine guns, so expect a bit of a movement penalty when you're using these. If this is an issue, you'll want to use something like Lightweight to counteract the additional weight. If you're going to go traditional sniper, you'll want to use perks that hide you from enemy radar and devices. In this way, you can post up at a good overwatch point and pop your enemies' heads at your leisure.

Let's take a look at some of the sniper rifles that are included in Call of Duty: Black Ops 2.
