Automatic Sniper Rifle in NOVA

So I just got back from playing NOVA on Frozen. When I first joined I noticed something very odd. I noticed that before someone got killed with a sniper rifle, it shot about 5 times automatically. I have a reason to believe that this is a hack. The person who was hacking had a score of 22-5 before he left. I took a screenshot just in case. Has anyone ever encountered this before? Post your thoughts.

Yeah, some dude did this to me in a game once. It was a pain... We couldn't do anything since he was killing everyone almost immediately after spawning. Did you get the guy's name? I think the one I saw was Mactavosh or something else COD related.

Mexecutioner was the name. I took a screen shot of the scores before he left. I will upload it soon.

Same thing happend to me. Has anyone seen the hack where a guy dies but he's still alive on the ground and can kill you but you can't kill him. Hackers suck.

Something something something darkside. Something something something complete.

Hackers are becoming a serious problem in NOVA. A played a game where a guy killed people AS SOON AS THEY SPAWNED. You don't even get a chance to take a step. This multiplayer seriously needs to be fixed. This is making the game unplayable. I feel like I wasted that $7.
