Yes, I'm doing THIS delightful little fellow now. In all his runny-nosed cowardly chicken glory.
About this creation
Campers are rediculous; I mean, they're like liquid helium.
Game start in 5,
And away he goes, up to the highest point on the map.
A camper can be a sniper, but a sniper is not neccessarily a camper.
A sniper moves about every three or so shots, unless he misses, in
which case he moves immediately.
Even if it's only a few windows, he still moves.
A camper, on the other hand, is liable to 'camp' in one place for
ages and ages and ages.
In a team game, a sniper, a machinegunner, or both, may set themselves
up in buildings or similar locations.
That is to be expected; it's simple tactics.
It's not true camping, rather it's just setting up in a good location.
But in a deathmatch or similar gametype, it has no place and is abhored.
It is regarded as dishonorable and cheap, as well as stupidly easy,
and all three points of view are correct; it's easy, it's cheap, and entirely unlike
a rush, which takes bravery to perform and great skill to survive intact.
Believe me, a good charger is deserving of respect, assuming he knows when to stay back.
This is about camping as a tactic, not as a neccessity because of a slow
If you have a slow connection, you must do whatever you can to even
out the gap a little.
'Camper' is also a term of insult for a superior player; calling a sniper
a camper is just pathetic, as chances are, he's actually doing a bit
of moving around every now and then.
There are three kinds of camping: standard camping, which is skill-less,
master camping, which requires significant skill to do, and spawn
camping, which should be enough to get you banned.
Standard camping: staying put or in a very small area, blasting anyone you
see. Stupid, stupid. For one thing, the enemy can just use a vehicle or a
rocket launcher or a machinegun or anything really to root you out.
Master camping: this is the most acceptable type.
It involves selecting a spot, hard to see, out of the way, where most
people would never go. It involves pin-point shooting.
It requires waiting until the enemy has come close enough for
you to be certain of a kill, because a wounded enemy can
spot you and tell his mates all about the camper in the corner.
Spawn camping: if you do this, you should be shot. Not in the game,
in real life. That is not as much my opinion as that of everyone else
who's ever been spawn camped; I've never played an FPS, so I wouldn't know.
Spawn camping is simply hiding close to the enemy spawn site and shooting/
throwing grenades at them. It is annoying as heck and an act
that completely violates common principles of sportsmanship.
Working limited camping into your tactics is fine; it's the use of
combat psycology and terrain to your advantage.
Total camping because it's all you can do is pathetic and you should strive to improve your abilities.
That's the opinion of an outsider who can see how irritating such tactics could be.
That's, really quite terrible. My freind has tunnel vision to a lesser extent. Also, I am sorta a master camper to a lesser ectent, not so much a camper, however. Mind you, I find that, on this one map, with this certain type of gun, since the other players are Helghast, when I spawn as ISA, I can see their red eyes from a very long distance, and snipe them out, I prefer this gun to the sniper rifle because of this reason, it is automatic, so is I miss, I don't have to wait two second and the enemy moves, insted, I move my dotted sight a bit.

There are too many of these guys in Modern Warfare two, by the way, do you play that game, or is it deemed too violant?
There would be, it's the easiest way to win a game. Eh, I'm not interested in it. There's a couple of reasons; it's more expensive than more interesting games (like Silent Storm) I don't really play FPS games much (enjoy the Metroid Prime games though) I tend to get a sort of tunnel vision while playing that's fine in a single player game but would get me killed online (Look! An enemy! Let's focus on causing his demise and ignore everything else! Whoops, now his mate's behind us with a energy grenade. Hypermode time. (mass murder ensues)and, in general, I prefer more strategizing games (like Silent Storm) though I wouldn't mind trying Rainbow Six someday. Oh, and my computer would explode trying to run it. It's ancient (by XP standards), and can't even run Ground Control properly. (that's a rather old game that's basically pure gold and is now freeware.) And yeah, it'd definitely get vetoed by zer parental units.

In some FPS's I have found Campers not just in a house but UNDER THE STAIRCASE!!! I reward these cowards with a badly thrown grenade and a lethal barrage of SMG fire. If I'm not shot first, seeing that I fail at online games.
Under the STAIRS? Seriously, you'd think they'd know better than to hide in places like that; I mean, what happens if someone's coming down the stairs, looks down, and sees a chicken hiding under his feet? (well usually he'd wring it's neck and have it for dinner). Actually, has anyone noticed the marshmallow he's roasting yet?
