Black Ops 2: the return of quickscoping?

First impressions are that the DSR-50 will the sniper rifle of choice for rush snipers and quickscopers. The Ballista will undoubtedly appeal to anyone who sniped in World at War, being a bolt-action with iron sights.

Personally, I can’t wait to try out both of these weapons. I began using the Intervention in Modern Warfare 2 and quickly became a fan of aggressive sniping. Sadly this was nigh on impossible in the Black Ops, so I am crossing fingers & toes in the hope Treyarch get right balance in the upcoming sequel.
