- A term used mainly in First Person Shooter games. The action of “No-Scoping” an enemy requires a player who has a sniper rifle, to fire the weapon without properly aiming with the use of a scope, and to hit their opponent and eliminate them.
- The origins of this term are not entirely known, but it is assumed that this phrase was coined by the YouTube video creator, “zzirGrizz”, and popularizing it in a video filled with no scope kills in multiple Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare game matches.
- This technique is considered somewhat hard to do due to the fact that in many first person shooters, sniper rifles are intended to be used at long range while aiming. The direction in which the bullet will fly when un-aimed is hard to tell due to the games design of not having a targeting reticle in the center of the screen, as well as having bullet trajectory being randomized when firing a weapon un-aimed.
