You only have to look at what multiplayer fps's on the pc do to campers to know the op is talking nonsense, most of those games have their own servers and guess what - if you camp you get blocked from playing on the server
Sniping is not camping though, sniping is sniping, you are supposed to be still.
Oh and lol at people saying rushing takes no skill. That is beyond retarded
Even though I hate campers the idea of removing camping and making the map "flowing" and removed a lot of camping, it has hurted more. Its a f**fest. You have people spawning behind you all the time. You see people spraying randomly and getting kills all the time. You cannot run a second without getting shot. Sure it has made the gameplay a lot faster but I am definately not enjoying this type of gameplay.
Sooooooooo, what you're saying is, the other CoDs you could successfully camp and run and gun? Hhhhmmmm. Seems to me that people in blops 2 camp with no problem and run and gun. I'm primarily a run and gunner, funny thing is though, when I wanted to get my nuke cards, I camped my a$$ off and got it with no problem. Don't get me wrong, I have always liked all the cod games, but to say that this game used to be played with more then two tactics is the funniest $h!t I've heard all day.
You are obviously a newbie, MW4? I've played since CoD2 online and yes, what the OP is talking about has changed dramatically. It's way more chaotic with 1 group of weapons being favored because of map design. People will say, "there are tons of big maps". Well, try long sight lines in those "Big" maps. Very few and far between. I've heard people say that camping is out of control in this installment. Just throw on your SMG, engineer and EMP grenades and boom, no camper is safe. This is a lob sided installment of CoD but hey, I guess they tried something new even if I think it's not true CoD. Others will have there opinions too, I'm sure.
Dude, ONE EMP grenade in the floor below would have blown ALL of those up. I use engineer on all my classes and I use emp grenades on some of them. best "breaching" combo IMO. This video was obviously against a bunch of rookies because I guarantee you that this would never happen this long after release.
This argument campers vs run and gun is pointless, tbh unless your using a little of both your a poor player. The best players who play the objectives, recieve their scorestreaks and attain high scores every game are people who tend to stick to the edges of the maps, avoiding the middle and picking people off as they go.
On game modes like Hardpoint and Domination you get more points for kills when taking the objective so if your good you will clear the surrounding area get into the objective and aim where you know the enemy is coming from due to them having to respawn in a particular place.
This is a mix of both 'run and gun' and 'camping' in order to achieve 1. the objective and 2. your scorestreaks in order to help the team.
If you sit in one place doing little to help the team and just get kills for yourself, your a noob. SIMPLE.
If you run into the middle of the map all guns blazing killing a couple of guys and then getting killed, your a noob. SIMPLE.
Use both styles effectively and you will see your stats rise steadily
