I guess that just means those bc2 requires a higher skill level. As apparently you lack the skills required to turn the tables on your enemy, and need a game that has a much higher level of survivibility.
What exactly is a big 1 shot rifle with a scope if not a sniper?
Then those are the worst players in the world. If you can't kill somebody when you have the jump on such a low TTK game, I feel sorry for that person. Low TTK is nothing but twitch shooting, you aim for hardly 2 seconds, in a higher TTK game you have to actually aim longer and whoever has better overall aim will win. I said a big rifle with a scope that ISN'T OHK
, I'm not 100% sure on how the strongest weapon goes, but there is no way to OHK.

This approach is not very popular on PC. It's not an accident that military shooters are more popular on PC than fictional shooters, the player is able to down enemies with far less bullets.
PC gamers loath player skill compensation(aim assist, shields, health boost etc.).
Yeah because 2 seconds of spray and praying vs 6 seconds of aiming, 2 seconds of spray and pray obviously require more skill. Why should they be downed? This is a game, not real life. This isn't as high of a TTK as halo, you'll be able to kill in 1 clip easily, you just have to make sure you hit half of your shots at least. No, it's because CoD is overly hyped due to it's past success and it's hosting company. All the big names hardly focus on the PC, and are all about xbox 360. I'm talked to a lot of the kids at my school, and none of them heard about Brink and pretty much all of them said it sounds awesome when I explained it to them. The reason for that is because it is much easier to just spray and pray, making it more popular for casual gamers. There is no skill compensation in Brink, so I have no idea what you're talking about. There is no aim assist, shields, and the only health boost is a small one from medics. The TTK is for example a SMG will kill in about 7-9 shots. A game like CoD takes much less than that.
