After many complaints from the “quick scoping community”, Treyarch decided to alter the way sniper rifles work and by doing this the quick scoping returned. Though you can quick scope in Black Ops, it is and never was the same as in the previous titles in which you could properly quick scope.

It's been a great week to be a gamer. E3 has given us plenty to think about over the next couple of months, but there is one game on everyone's mind: Modern Warfare 3. While we already knew about the release date and pricing details, we learned several details about the single player mode and what weapons we'll be using to mow down the baddies. Some of the best news, however, is related to the huge improvements that Spec Ops mode will be receiving in this sequel. In fact, Spec Ops is receiving a completely new game type called Survival. It's similar to Horde mode in Gears of War, but with a few key twists.
Infinity Ward's community manager, Robert Bowling, explains how Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is innovating the co-op genre...
On how Modern Warfare 3 will differentiate itself from previous versions of Call of Duty, Bowling said the following:

With the announcement of Call of Duty: Elite, many gamers think that Activision is going too far and Call of Duty: Elite milking too far. This is not so! If you're reading this on the official website of Call of Duty: Elite you can read you all the normal functions of the Call of Duty's just maintaining at no extra charge.But the best is surely the DLC.
Jamie Berger, VP of Digital at Activision wants you t to know that, "There’s been a lot of speculation and we’ll continue to say this: We do not and will not charge for multiplayer.” This was also confirmed last night from Robert Bowling @fourzerotwo when he tweeted, “COD ELITE is free, for all players, some paid aspects TBD. Absolutely NO fee to play #MW3 multiplayer. Detailed reveal coming tomorrow AM.”. This after the WSJ posted the first news of the COD Elite package and left players a bit enraged.

This is what Robert Bowling, creative strategist of MW3, said on his official twitter account:
"Lots of false #MW3 info being reported as fact. There is no Stopping Power, OMA, Commando, or Nukes Beyond that, you’ll have to wait & see."Looks like Activision its taking the Nuke out of the COD franchise once and for all. Bad news for all the boosters.
