ok, i hear alot of people on servers complaining about 'campers'. 1'st of all, this is not quake 3 arena. If all people ever did was run around with smg's(wich some do) this game would get mightly boring really really fast, and there would be no point making anything new games. What ever happen to finding cover, why is it called camping, find cover, shoot, then move on! ohh, poor babywith a smg running around in the middle of a field got hit by one discrete rifle shot :moon: Are snipers concidered campers? they hold up in one place and murder tons of folks without ever beeing seen, thats a minor skill (i say minor cause it is only a video game).more skill then a smg running in circles. The reason why they put 'being prone' in tha game was so people could put them selves in low visibility areas and take people out. These maps are well made, but if everybody decides to run around them blindly shooting, then there is really no point making them so detailed.

one last thing...it pisses me off so much when in pavlov when the 2 teams take building and have rifle wars, but then it gets ruined cause someone thought it would be fun to run around with a ppsh and murder everybody. sniping is ok people.

so in the end, find cover, fire, move on, ad take the flank.

Well i agree with u on the no respect for sprayboys. But i think snipers are just riflemen with very thick glasses. Show u can really aim and use a scopeless rifle. The added mobility doesnt make it worse :naughty:

one latest development, i was playing hurtgen as a german. we had lost the first objective so i told everybody to go defend the second(in the boiler room). This british Jerk complains for so long that someone is camping at the objective, then once he clears the the room, he sets the bomb, then guess what folks? He 'camps' right beside it...grande suprize!

this is him: "omg, there is so much camping"...(when i wrote down those dots, i did them slowlyto show how unimplressed i am)

Theres nothing wrong with camping, but sometimes theres too many snipers in one game. But the ones who hate the game for campers and others who go around spray shooting at the opposite side, should take a fair old look at the WW1 and WW2, as the makers of the game, wanted to try and make a game, as close as they could get to the real experience of the real wars. If that ment some campers and some going round spray shooting, then so be it !!

Everyones got to understand that during the war, there were soliders who were totally scared of loosing their life during the war, as they didnt know what was going to happen next. So if that ment camping (staying in one place without getting killed) then thats what they did. But if you had the balls or wasnt frightened to die, then go around with a PPsh shooting at a german or a alli, well that was their choice.

There will always be different people with different ways of doing the game, otherwise it would make for such a very boring game, and very boring life.

Thats my 2P put in the box lol.

first of all camping is not finding a spot killing then moving to another spot. camping is sitting in one spot the whole time waiting for those to run by and then killing them. i dont mind camping it is part of the concept of the game. but when i dont like camping is when ur playing something like S&D and no one is trying to fullfill the objective they are all jsut sitting there trying to kill the othre team like it is a deathmatch. that is the only time it bothers me.

Camping is necessary if you wanna win. At least on the realism servers. Running around with a SMG spraying bullets is stupid and annoying. This is a WWII game not crack heads doing run by's on their dealer. Go play Quake if u wanna run n gun.

:spank: < me hitting a crack head

Actually I say defending is a better name for what most people call camping. There are forms of camping that are bad for example I saw a guy who was in the train yard map just sitting a top one of the beams above a train the whole time. In 45 mins he only got 13 kills opposed to the average 45 kills. That kind of camping is stupid and cowardly. But if there is an objective or an area that enemies seem to come by often that is good camping.

I only use the term camping when during an S & D match my teamate decides to make sure the spawn is clear for 5 minutes.
