Bungie Addresses Sniping in PvP Concerns for Destiny
Would realistic sniping really be better in Destiny?
Ever since the latest weapon patch dropped for Destiny, there haven’t been a whole lot of viable options for players to choose from. Pulse rifles were nerfed, auto rifles didn’t get an enormous buff, shotguns are very situational and hand cannons are still pretty meh.
Either because of the absence of anything better or because it’s just so easy, many have started picking up snipers with high aim-assist like 1000 Yard Stare and racking up headshots. It wouldn’t be so bad if players weren’t able to pull off some crazy snipes at the drop of a hat.
Bungie forum users have been bringing up these concerns frequently, and community manager Cozmo responded that, “It seems you want sniping to behave much more realistically like they would in a military sim. The question is in a game like Destiny where there are Guardians flying through the air, blinking around, and throwing supers at you would having to stand super still and line up shots without moving be viable? Would it be fun?”
