I agree with RnG to degree. I have not been in a lobby where everybody camped. Mainly because I am there and I don't.
I have, however, been in a number of lobbies where the vast majority did and the match ended on time not score despite best efforts by the few to take their team to 75 points. The others just hanging out and waiting.
I find those rounds disposable and un-entertaining to say the least.
PS. I have never been a big C4 user but if you have not tried it, give it a shot. Just toss in the air and detonate in the general area of the usual suspects and bye bye birdy. Been great fun lately (I run it with Scavenger too as I do with almost all my classes).
The difference between snipers and campers is that snipers "camp" in view of an open lane and if you had a game of all snipers they would be looking and shooting at each other from afar. I'd like to see campers shoot at each other from corners of a room in the opposite houses they are camping in.
One of the golden rules of FPS gaming - to beat a camper one must become a camper, then integrate it into your playstyle. Campers rely on surprise/stealth tactics, If you can think like a camper you'll be able to smell them while playing aggressively, you'll know the effective camp spots and will be prepared to deal with them. Eventually you'll find yourself killing them en route to thier spots. There are different skill levels of camper and it will vary from match to match. Sometimes it's satisfying to play a team of campers, it's requires a change in pace and tactics from the usual predictable motions.
I think everybody starts out as a camper and works their way up to run and gunner, at least I know I did.
Yes it's the norm, to get good at most FPS games if your new to them requires camping at first, then you end up quickly realising its limitations and progress onto aggressive play. Covers all bases. I prefer to have experienced campers over mindless noob rushers in my team of randoms when playing solo.
it doenst matter if you camp in a high traffic area if nobody in the map moves around.
that's why you'll never find a game full of campers, people get fustrated and switch playstyle.
Exactly! It's like complaining about a scenario that would most likely not happen.
