Any anti-camping tactics?
We've all seen those cowards.
Crouched behind the desk on Highjacked or those damn team campers!
I don't mean people defending objectives or people honestly [long]-range sniping.
[Insert my hour long rant about how disgusting and pitiful the existance of a worthless little camper is.]
P.S. I HATE campers. Campers = Trash
Lesson 2- Don't argue with campers. They have every right to play the game how they want. Instead, just adjust your game to beat them. That is the best revenge.
Campers = Easy Kills.
1)Map Knowledge- Know the popular camping spots and sight lines. Nothing ticks a camper off more than an attacker slicing the pie around a corner and taking them out before they can even squeeze off a shot.
2)EMP grenades- Campers hate these little beauties. Stuns them temporarily and takes out their camping tools.
3) Avoidance. Sometimes just avoiding an area is a necessity. If they have it on lockdown,don't feed them easy kills by constantly attacking that same spot. If their camping zone isn't in a mission critical area, just take another route. They are often selfish enough to stay there even if there is light traffic, it takes them out of the equation.
4) Flanking- Comes back to map knowledge, learn all the routes to an area. Take the Chateau in Downhill for example. People like to camp inside. Many, however, don't realize you can climb up to the second floor balcony from the snowdrift in front and surprise them. You learn all the alternate routes, expect some fantastic camper rage
5)Communication- Tell your teammates where the campers are. Come up with a plan of attack if they are in an important area.
6) Use your lethals and tacticals- they really help against campers.
7) Get the lead and then camp yourself- Not my favorite tactic... but for intense campers sometimes it is best to get a lead and sit back.. let them have to go on the offensive to get the win. Not the most exciting, but again you get some great nerd rage.
They are easy to beat if you know how to do it.
Pretty much use a weapon that you are comfy with. I prefer ARs for the long range engagements.
I find FMJ helps take out those who head glitch. I use the red dot a lot to help with my aim, but some guns have ideal iron sights. Use what is comfortable to you. In some situations using the TF against the campers really helps, especially if they head glitch or camp windows.
I find Ghost pretty useless, so I typically carry a launcher to take out UAVs. I love Fast Mags, but I mix that with Cold Blooded. I always use Blind Eye so those ill-earned streaks can't kill me... and I recommend Dexterity and Engineer. Dexterity is awesome for climbing up to climbing spots quickly and surprising campers, Engineer to pick up their Betties, etc.
I don't rely too much on my equipment, but there are tools like the EMP or Frag/Semtex Grenades which are great for digging the campers out.
As a self proclaimed and unashamed camper, I agree. EMPs are definitely annoying to have to deal with. There isn't a reliable counter to EMPs since EMPs can affect equipment through walls which renders the trophy system pretty useless. It is still possible to camp without equipment, but equipment definitely makes camping much easier. The best campers move around some and keep the run and guns guessing where they are. A stupid camper stays in the same place all the time.
Primary Weapon: MK48
Attachments: FMJ, Adjustable Stock
Secondary Weapon: MP7
Perks: Toughness, Engineer
Tacticals: EMP grenades x2
Depends on the situation though. You could replace Overkill with may be a SMAW and then use Scavenger. I'm surprised the amount of corner campers I find in my lobbies that don't run Cold Blooded, probably hoping to blend in the background to save selecting it to allow a slot for something else. That's why I mentioned the MMS attachment above.
