definition of camping in a FPS

Post by Lord Farnswaller on 8/5/2012, 13:31

is it

1. sitting in one place, not moving and getting a few kills?

2. patrolling a small part of the map, placing traps so that the idiot you killed 20 seconds before gets killed over and over and over and over again coming back to kill you which in turn makes you camp more and get higher kill rewards?

I define it as item 1, were as i prefer item 2 especially when playing without fellow ARC members so that my own team get fed up me patrolling a small area of the map defending a flag.

I agree Lord, number 1 would be camping. Patrolling an area of the map, especially when not playing with members is perfectly acceptable in my eyes.

I had a go at Black Ops last night on my own and did item 2, and I have to say I actually enjoyed playing Blops again.

my def of camping is a person that sits and stares at a doorway non stop till someone walks in front of his sights and he gets a kill.

to me , patrolling an area is a legit strategy , provided that you atleast move around abit and make sure that a couple of routes are enemy free

I agree that camping is a ligitimate strategy. If the members of the other team are stupid enough to keep comin back and getting killed it's their problem. Personally, I don't do it too much because I find it boring to just sit in one place and wait.

The best way to deal with a camper is to let your other team members know where they are hiding, then everyone just stay away from that area. That way they won't get any kills and will soon get bored and move on. Works every time.

As a sufferer of ADD I find it almost impossible to camp as I need to keep busy even if it's only getting killed... lol!

Its number 1 all day.

The thing I find about patrolling a small area is that on some maps its just necessary. Depending on your weapon set up different parts of the map favour you more than others. Why would you move to an area that is unfavourable?

That has seen the biggest improvement in my game play definatly.

When I die I tend to move to a different area near my spawn. Most maps have a few different areas for each play style.

Number 1 for sure, but not that it makes a difference imo.

Some people, usually immature kids will always have one issue or another with how you killed, where you were and what you used etc and then likely send you abuse for it. Laughing

To me it makes no difference as everyone is different and does different things and plays in different ways and players can use whatever tactic they like to kill me and vice versa.

Pure camping isn't that effective anyway as it's predictable and usually ends up putting them at a disadvantage like snipers returning to exactly the same spot.
