Anybody else feel penalized by aiming?

I feel like with the exception of sniper rifles, I am nearly always better off hipfiring and spraying my aim wildly. And indeed for headshot challenges I found this to be a much more effective way of getting headshots.

I don't know what it is. I'm inclined to say that it's because the hit detection is awful and usually aiming at a moving player will result in no hits. But I don't know.

I've always felt like this game penalized you for not hip firing. It's built from the ground up for SMGs.

I guess if you had terrible reaction time and bad aim you would feel penalized for aiming. Otherwise it is the most accurate and effective way to put someone down, even in close range.

It's because the maps promote close quarters engagements. It has always been good practice in CoD to hipfire in CQC
