One of the most annoying aspects of Gears of War 1 was that active reload sniper.
In the multi-player game it was often the case where your opponent managed to down you with that sniper and then you know the game was over, as all they needed to do was not to miss their active reload and keep downing you until you died.
This left you with just a feint hope they would miss the active reload or shot.
However CliffyB has popped into the NeoGAF forums and confirmed that the sniper in Gears 2 will not have this ability.
Will this take away a lot from the game or even it up? Only time will tell
