Dropshotting nerfed? (video)

Shows that bullet spread goes whack as you shoot while dropping to prone.

(oh, and prepared to press the mute button... lol)

I look at that as possibly a nerf but also useful to have that spread.

So. It could be both. Nerf and buff. If someone strafes now the spread is wider making it easier to hit them. At the same time it could screw you over of course but this may be a silver lining.

Or it could just be a bug.

This game just keeps making me happier and happier, and I don't even have it yet.

Awesome. I hoped they'd make you un-ADS, but this is more or less the same thing. Can't wait to see all the scrubs trying to dropshot and wondering why it doesn't work so hot anymore.

All's fair in love and war, kid.

If anything this will possibly lead to a decrease in drop shotting. The only dropshotting I'm interested in is river fishing.

I wonder who's gonna come in here and whine.
Probably one of the same people who have orgasms over the Ghost Nerf lol.

Not a whine, but I laugh at replies like Sully's who label people who dropshot as scrubs. All it is is a motion of pressing two different actions almost at once. It isn't cheating.

With said logic, let me guess that when you're on high ground with someone with their back to you, you don't jump and shoot straight away, you wait till you land, right?

So yeah, lol at the slight insult towards people who may or may have not killed you. Go be bad some more.

I haven't noticed anything different when dropshotting. Still works like a charm for me

Thank f****** god, drop shotting is one of the most stupid thing in COD games. Now people might actually have to use skill to kill a better player instead of using broken game mechanics. Loving this game more and more.

And yeah, having seen someone try drop shotting in real life, I can attest to how BS it is.

sadly dropshotting is still there and happens a lot the same as quickscoping and camping but this is a step forward
