Quickscoping is practically a meme at this point, but there's a solid reason for its wide-reaching reputation — it's absurdly effective once mastered. It also feels good and looks professional, to boot. Quickscoping is a technique deeply rooted in the Call of Duty series, so it should be no surprise to see it's a popular technique in Warzone as well.
It may look simple when boiled down to its basics — you spot an enemy in front of you, roughly line up your cursor on them, aim down sights for a fraction of a second, and pull the trigger! However, pulling off a flawless Quickscope is no easy task.
How to Quickscope in Call of Duty Warzone
As we mentioned in the introduction, time is the most crucial factor. The shorter your aim down sight time, the better your Quickscope. Needless to say, such a professional maneuver demands a precise aim as well. Note that Quickscoping is purely for Marksman Rifles and Snipers. If you are torn between them, here are some brief advantages and disadvantages.
- Marksman Rifles are of higher mobility.
- Sniper Rifles have more serious damage, bullet velocity, and stopping power.
The Balance Between Sniper And Marksman Rifles
Opting for a middle ground between the mobility of a Marksman Rifle and the high power of a Sniper Rifle is the way to go. Most people choose the good old Kar98K. Despite its designation as a Marksman Rifle, this weapon is capable of dealing massive amounts of damage to enemies.
You should make sure that your choice of attachments should render your aim down sights faster. For this purpose, you could go with the Tac Laser, the Stippled Grip Tape, and the FTAC sport comb. Any possible attachment that hinders the aim down sight speed is going to make it harder to hit that Quickscope.
The Best Modes In Warzone To Get Quickscopes
One of the most straightforward modes for hitting Quickscopes is the Warzone Rumble mode. In this mode, you get the chance to respawn after every kill. Coming back to the match you would have a loadout, and this goes a long way to facilitate the desired Quickscopes. But you should bear in mind that this mode is not always going to be around.
Keep an eye out on your playlist so that you won't miss the reappearance of this game mode. Until then, try to be vigilant of the free loadouts landing in your vicinity or buy one if you have enough cash. Experience dictates that hitting those tricky Quickscope shots with the default weapons scattered around the map is extremely difficult. They are not fully optimized for this end, and the slower aim down sights speed could really degrade the quality of your shot.
Getting Quickscopes In Modern Warfare Multiplayer
It is much easier to land a Quickscope in Multiplayer game modes, and here is why:
- You are constantly in the battle. Furthermore, the fact that you respawn with your loadout is going to help you a lot in getting those Quickscopes.
- If you can get in a hardcore match, it is going to further increase your chances of getting those Quicscope kills. That is because your enemies are not going to take much damage before they die. Consequently, you will not have to worry about hitting a headshot to finish them.
Tips For Hitting Quickscope Shots In Call Of Duty Warzone
- First and foremost, keep in mind that your crosshair positioning plays a vital role in landing Quickscope shots.
Before you scope in and pull the trigger, you need to make sure that your crosshair is around chest height to increase your chances of getting the Quickscope. The entire purpose of a QuickScope is that the majority of aiming is accomplished with the cursor before you scope in. Then, aim down sights just long enough for the scope reticle to appear and pull the trigger. It is worth mentioning that if you don't wait long enough for the reticle to show up, the bullet will not go perfectly straight, making it a "noscope."
- The second important point is to lead your cursor if you are trying to Quickscope a moving target.
That means that if your enemy is sprinting full speed across your view, it is likely that they will be past your reticle by the time the scoping animation is over. To compensate for that, you should aim slightly ahead of a running player before you scope in.
- Try to pull your mouse down before you fire.
It is also possible that you will be targeted while trying to pull off that sweet Quickscope, and the resulting flinch will interfere with your aim. To counter this effectively, try to pull your mouse down before you fire.
- Good positioning before you go for a Quickscope is absolutely paramount, so find a good sniper nest
There are some professional players with insane aim that run around the map, hitting Quickscopes with intuitive ease. But for the average player with a mediocre aim, it is recommended that you find a good sniper nest.
A good spot where your attempts at Quickscopes will stay hidden from your enemy is exactly what you need. High ground is usually a good choice. The rooftops, the top of a tall structure, and mountains provide a commanding view for a sniper.
