Yes they "fixed" snipers...you don't have to hold your breath any more but the sway is the same as before.

I only saw a few servers running it but there were a few more people sniping then before

I haven't played CoD4 yet, but isn't there a perk that lets you hold your breath longer or something? If that's the case, then isn't it now completely useless if you don't need to hold your breath to snipe? Or does it just eliminate sway, whereas if you don't hold your breath it'll still sway?

..My Steam isn't updating.

If they removed the sniper scope sway, I'd stop playing MP.

...what do you mean you don't have to hold your breathe? There is still sway, but you can't make it go away?

I think he means the bullets will actually follow the sway.

Who gave me krmaz for Kraftwerk??? I <3 youuuuuuuuuu! Tell me who you are so we can make sweet love to their funky beats.


Oh and I guess I should say something on topic... but I haven't played the game yet... umm... wow they're on 1.3 already? I guess that's a good thing. I'm used to EA taking forever and getting to 1.41 2 years later.

The only time I don't hold my breath is with the first two semi auto snipers.

Well I still hold my breath with them, it's just fun to bust of 5 shots in quick succession and get a random head shot.

I shot a guy in the leg once and got a headshot. O.o

Kinda a debatable topic....Here is MY take:

with out holding breath there used to just be a cone of fire...The gun was to inaccurate to really hit anything so if you didn't hold your breath you would miss even if you adjusted for the sway. In my experience if you held your breath for a long time the random deviation went away and you would hit your target pretty much every time.

At first this seamed like it sucked....but its kinda good. You cant just twich over and hit some one. You have to prepair your shot (I.E. get somewhere safe to look through the scope for a few seconds, hold your breath stop and take aim, wait for a good shot).


While there is sway, it doesn't really affect the the cross hair while your moving it around. This makes it hard when your standing there aiming at a sliver of some ones head behind cover(I.E. shots where you trying to get your scope steady on a target, but if you move your cross hair over the target and fire before you even really stop on them you cant really notice the sway.

Also if you have a real good idea where the center of the screen is the scope is pretty much on target as soon as you bring it up so you can fire before it really has a chance to "sway"


Its kinda good easier to defend your self close quarters, and I do like sniping....but it was nice when there was more challenge to it, kills felt more rewarding I guess.

I still use breathing a tiny bit, but you

It's kind of funny actually, seeing that I just downloaded 1.2 earlier today.

the problem was that even with breath holding the hit reg sucked so bad sometimes you could drop a mag into someone and still register no hits

Me thinks the sway in Cod4 so far is pretty realistic ...
