    I think I've seen 3 threads these past days all calling out campers. But what is a camper? In one of them, this guy was using his environment, and then was called a camper. In another, this guy was in a corner, and called a camper.



    What do I think is a camper?

    My definition probably varies from yours, but to me a camper is someone who crouches in an obscure corner, and just stays there. He probably has a claymore or motion sensor planted in front of him, and is most likely ADS at a doorway. They won't move according to spawns or objectives. They just SIT THERE LIKE A BITCH. - elpresador.


    What I don't think is camping.

    - Map Control/Working spawns. Lets lay the scenario out. TDM on Jungle. Your team is spawning in the bottom of the village by the mud puddles. You're all rushing up the hill to the shack overlooking B. I'm on the little slanted scrap metal roof with My AUG, shooting you as you run up that hill and round the corner. I don't call that camping. Do you expect me to leave my spot after I get a kill, knowing that your whole team is coming at me?

    - "Camping" Objectives. I have no problem being shot in the back as I try to plant a bomb in Demo. As long as you're watching the objective, I can't call it camping.


    Blackopsforum, lets get your definitions.

    I've been called a camper because my final game-winning killcam shows me standing still for 3 seconds, because I knew someone was running towards me.

    People tend to throw the definition around as some kind of defence for their own shortcomings. It doesn't bother me at all.

    I agree with your definition though.

    I don't think it matters what a camper is, because as long as you aren't hacking/modding/cheating everything is fair game.

    That's why I don't get upset when I'm called a camper, I just say, "Avoid my spot or come kill me...apparently that's too difficult for you."

    EDIT: To be clear I only camp in TDM. People who don't help capture a flag, plant a bomb, capture a HQ, WHEN IT'S NECESSARY is when camping is bad.

    THE GAME IS PLAYING THEM

    lol one of the best commentators ever



    My definition: A player in an online first-person shooter that would rather wait in a corner for people to come to them. They are mostly accompanied by a Camera Spike, Motion Sensor, or Claymore to detect movement and/or watch an open route to their camping spot. These players are much less aggressive and may also be have the same personality and can be irritating to their enemies and teammates if they refuse to play the objective and just try to build high killstreaks so they can feel superior.



    The second definition you gave is not camping. Its called being tactically positioned.

    I camp sometimes, and I think it's hilarious when I kill the same guy 5 times in a row.

    If you are in a covered elevated position with guys coming at you over and over again and you keep killing them........ Why would you stop?

    Well back to the question,

    I would define a true camper by them not going for objectives and camping is the ONLY strategy they know how to do, and DON'T do anything else

    I agree OP. If you're controlling a building or a section of a Map then it's not camping.

    Generally, if you 1/2 kills away from a CG or Dogs, then by all means camp for a minute or two. If you get over 4 kills, not at one time, like a group ran through, but by waiting a while, then you are officially camping too hard and should move around and stretch your legs.

    As much as i hate saying it if ur getting kills and the enemy is presently coming ur way pitch a tent. I have a poblem w/ those who pick a spot and sit there the whole fight regardless of enemy location and traffic in that area. 10 or 15 seconds without a kill in a window??? makes no sense at all. I try not to "unneccisarily camp" and hate it more than anything when a teammate does.
    Think ab it who hasnt said "man i hate f*ckin campers"
    Everyone has a mind and a strategy of there own its how the game goes

    Yesterday I "had" to play capture the flag. when I was waiting to spawn. I watched my team mates laying prone in a bush, ten feet from the flag. Looking down the sight at the flag pole. That is camping and the only way some people can get a kill.

    I completely agree, people throw the word "camper" around too loosely. When one person might hear the others footsteps down the hallway and wait in a corner for them to pass by and then blast them in the back is most peoples cue to start screaming camper because he stopped moving for 5 seconds...

    I got kicked because I wasnt going for the objective in HQ yesterday. I was holding of the enemy on the main road to the objective. Everybody was complaining about me =( So I captured the next hq that spawned and then they kicked me xD My score was about 46-3. That wasn't camping it was tactical. We took al the objectives...

    Camping is hiding in a corner and waiting for someone to run by without any other use.

    Last night we went 5 matches without letting the other team take a HC. My whole team ran ninja + silenced spas. :D 2 of us were blocking routes by holding corners, the other 3 were capping the HQs. In the post game lobby the two defense guys were called TDM players. >.> If anything those guys were the reason we kept winning so easily.

    There's a large difference between this behaviour in TDM (where it's pretty lame due to traffic moving) and in an objective game (where it's tactical due to static objective points and the need to control an area). I'm not talking about that one guy hiding in the bushes 150m away from objectives, talking about the guy 10m in front of the objective laying waste to rushers trying to kill his buddies. :)

    In other gamemodes you get called a camper if you're doing anything other than running straight through the middle of the map looking up. I have a slight feeling some players like to blame others for their failures. :D

    Camping is when you are sat in a low traffic area, where ppl dont expect confrontation and pick them off. I dont "camp" what i do is go to a high traffic area, and hold it down, people may call me a camper, but that just cos they run out in the open?! wtf lol, i never go into open areas outdoors, stick to walls and edges. If i didnt do this what would you expect? me to just kill you, then run into the open after i showed up on your teams radar, id get owned. lol, tactical ambush is my style lol, and once i get killed i go find a new area to play. i think staying in one area all game is more campy.

    There is always a shitty waiting in B4 where is the top left corner.

    but, when he kills me, I will return.
    A nice shot of crossbow (just for fun) and a claymore to put in the corner,
    so if he returns, he finds a surprise..:D

    I 'camped' last night .... on Grid ... on the roof of the building next to the Petrol storage units.
    Reason .... i'd placed a sentry gun on top of the storage units and it was having a good time of taking out the enemy. Knowing they would come round to take it out, i watched the small window overlooking the roof and the ladder. The same idiot came 3 times to take me and the gun out, and failed each time. He was trying a fourth time, but the score limit reached to end the game.

    Question .... camping or not.
    Answer .... not, i was defending my asset, a team asset.

    This. I hate people that won't move. And are just aiming down the scope at a door from a corner. There is no skill in that. Always in a odd place on the map too. It's even more annoying if its on domination and their team is getting a spanking. He's/She's not doing it for the team.

    I don't think its camping if its tactical placement. I sometimes do it. If I have just put a Spy plane up and I know someone is coming my way, I will sit in a corner and knife him in the back. Its tactical. I would rather take the easy kill than have a head on gun fight with someone which I could lose.

    When I get killed by a tactical camper. It annoys me but I take it on the chin like I do when I get done by a quickscoper. I sometimes send a message of congratz.

    I like to send messages to people on my team though. I sometimes get pissed in domination where I have a couple of members with no captures or defends but massive kdrs. I send shitty messages to them. "GO PLAY TDM YOU FUCKING CU*TS" :D

    In my experience, heavy campers dont get crazy high kills. If you see someone go 55-10 and only got one CG/Gun ship, they aren't camping most likely. You have to move around most of the time to even see that many people.

    Some indicators that you're facing a "serious camper";


    * They are using Ghost Pro and Ninja
    * They are using a two weapons with a silencer
    * They have a motion sensor up
    * They are in a very uncommon spot for someone to be sitting at, waiting.
    * Once you kill them, they return to the same spot.
    * Their killstreaks consist of Spy Plane, Counter Spy Plane and SR71

    I'll camp when I'm 1-2 kills away from a Chopper Gunner. Post up a claymore and put my back against the wall in a high traffic area. Other than that, not really for me. I may stay in one high traffic spot for a few, keep getting kills but if no one is coming towards me, I almost never stay. Really Ghost Pro and not moving are the biggest two indicators to me. I use Lighweight/Harline pro, no silenced weapons and claymores/C4. You know where I'm at and are just too bad to get rid of me.

    Camping is fun, I do it myself. Killing another Camper is also fun, I also do that.

    If you have a guy who's camping the hell out of a match you'll just need to play tactically, if you're not, you're just dumb.

    I have one piece of advice for those who share hatred amongs the Camper club.

    Hold B for Xbox or O for PS3 to dive and beserkly shoot around.

    Yay.

    I have to definitions of a camper. There is a Hard camper and light camper.

    A hard camper is someone who stays in one spot or a corner and just sits their looking around waiting for someone to walk through and shoots them like a little b****. As you can tell i hate them.

    And light campers and ones you stay in like one building of one medium area, moveing around in the area, while keep on looking at like different doors, windows, passage ways. I dont hate these people because i do it and i see it as staregey and it takes skill and insticnt to cover like 4 doorways. And of course there are times this is acceptable and not, like in SnD and you're the only one left. But im a light light camper because i dont contiusly do this, i move around doing this in many different areas.

    So "campers" to me are hard campers they are just afriad to be a real man and grow a pair, these are the guys i will yell at through a mic, but of course i dont always there are times this is ok, like also in SnD you're the only guy left and theres like 5 of them, then i say its ok, but only then. Light camping is ok in more then just that one situation and i dont get mad at light campers.

    oh yea, if im close to chopper - you bet your ass - im at least gonna be very cautious...

    ... im too ADD to sit in any room too long, so hardcore 'camping' isnt for me...

    but one of my friends IS a serious camper - he does stay in one room - he doesnt stay in one spot, he switches corners every kill - and most people will try for a payback kill and sure enough they come back for more. He looks at it like 'if you keep coming in here - what do you expect' - 'quit coming after ME and you wont die' - HIS words NOT mine...

    Camper- [Cahm-per] A term given to those in an online multiplayer game (usually FPS) who will place themselves in a strategic position and wait for an extended period of time until a target enters his field of view. The position usually allows one to surprise the target and allows the "camper" to eliminate him with ease. There are variants of this such as camping an item to repeatedly gain its benefits and defending a critical location
