Well I know this may be a stupid thread but Before I got CoD I was told by many people there was no camping in the game anywhere. So I was in railyard playing some sort of game where you steal docs. But I notices 5-6 people were in prone postion on top of a train with sniper rifles just puppy gaurding the documents? It doesnt really bother me I was just wondering if any of you notice alot of camping on the maps? Maybe it was just for that game mode I dont know?

there is nothing wrong with camping at all. the problem is the ppl who complain about ppl using realistic sniper tactics (camping as the CS kiddies put it) so just toss a grenade to the "camping ground" and they are done. kthnxbye

I dident mean it like that..I know there is nothing wrong with it. I meant like some people from bf1942 said there was no camping at all there was no where to camp on any maps. I never said there was anything wrong with it.

You can camp, but unless you have excellent support, you can always get snuck up on and blugeoned to death by the butt of a machine gun.

tbh, CoD is kind of revolved around camping (well, S&D is... TDM is more, spray and pray :P) and i dont care, i started to get pissed off with the sof2 people going "damn campers" to every damn person who sat still for a second, its a different kinda of playing to me, and i prefere it,m its realistic, which is what i wanted, in WWII you think they ran at eachother spraying? didnt think so :P

all in all, camping saves your ass on this game, and good, using surrounding boxes/walls/trees just to stay alive is excellent, and tops the game off for the most realistic FS i have ever played :)

Hi i'm new here What do people expect everyone to do? Run out Like a moron with guns a blazing? I'm sorry but i hide in Strategic Positions around the map to kill morons like that. Plain and simple people hate campers because They get killed by them

I agree, camping is just a fact of life. The way the maps are laid out, they make it more difficult to camp as you are always exposed in some way(as opposed to other games where there are ways to camp and you are virtually un-killable).

I don't think that Hitler's plan was to say : "OK, they are trying to take over this bunker here, so we are all going to just abandon it and run around like wild men hoping to God that we kill them before they kill us". He was a little smarter than that, as is 99% of common soldiers.

Yeah I find it hard to camp because of the killcam So after ever few kills i try to hide somewhere else. I don't play this game like a Arcade shooter and i don't think anyone else should. Running blindly into rooms hopping about is a good way to get killed. To me there are 2 kinds of camping. Camping with a Purpose and camping to hide. It's Sort of hard to Camp to hide in this game since the spawn points change alot in TDM and in S&D it would be a bad kind of camping if you stayed where you spawned and would be considered hiding. Camping a chokepoint and hiding around in sight of a commonly used route is a good strategy. Camping to Prolong a fight is the bad kind of camping.

Camping is a necessity, sometimes. I agree with a majority of the pro-camping posts above me.

You can camp, but unless you have excellent support, you can always get snuck up on and blugeoned to death by the butt of a machine gun.

Whole heartedly agree. That's true with basic sniping, too - you stay in one spot, you're going to get yourself owned. And you know what's more embarassing than getting pistol-whipped?

I don't know. :D
