There's a lot of talk from campers and how dumb/stupid/ sucicidal, headless chickens and basic all round knuckle draggers run and gunners are so I thought i'd lay out how I see the game when I play.
I used to love HQ on MW2 (there is a point) Skidrow used to be a favourite of mine. The building at the back pops up it's the one with the staircase leading up on the outside and opposite what I think was a video store. Any way the HQ would pop i'd follow a standard pattern wait nearby untill the clock hits 15 clear out the house using the noobtube.
Then claymore back door by the sofa and go perch on the fridge. Anyone who has spent time on that fridge will agree it's easily the best place to camp that HQ you can see in through the video store and the hallway across through the window the claymore would kill anyone that takes the back stairs and if someone comes up the side stairs you've always got the drop on them. 9 out of 10 times if you got flash banged, if you just stayed still they'd run past.
See i'm fully aware of how to camp and can see the appeal but the flaw with camping is a massive one it needs the enemy to be stupid that place on the fridge is the best to camp and would always bring in 10-15 straight kills but it's stupidly easy to kill someone on it if you just use the noob tube.
How many people stupidly ignore a perfectly good tool all because someone will call them noob?. When I was practicing clearing out the backroom on Hardhat you better beleive I was using the FMG akimbo untill I got comfertable with the most common spread of people.
Campers do well at the start of a CODs life then rushers click into where they are, come on be honest if you've been playing this game more than 3 months I could name a map and 3-4 areas would pop into your head where a camper normally hangs out.
Like the backroom on hardhat in the corner just to the left of the door mostly crouched, if they're lying down strangly they normally drop an akimbo machine pistol,if they're standing up expect MP9, akimbo MP9 or FMG. Also somewhere between the head glitch area or the barrel they'll be somebody so flashbang/RPG and break to the left firing some caution rounds left of the door about waist hight but also use the movement to check the back barrels a popular place for TI sitters.
Thats how I as a run and gunner see the map I it as a set of locations campers normally hide and my job is to clear them out. When I play as a camper I look at the map as areas to control. It's a giant game of hide and seek and time is always on the side of the seeker.
See thats why run and gunners don't get why campers insist that they have the more tactical gameplay at first it's true but they don't learn anything and relly totally on the enemy being dumb whilst the run and gunner says "Yeah you're gonna kill me and get a right pretty plane....but i'm gonna destroy you no matter how much you win or lose by you're gonna feel like crap even if the score is 56-20 in your favour i'm still gonna drop my stealth just on the off chance i'll buzz kill someone and end a long streak, i'll make sure all that time you spent getting stuff in the air was a complete waste because i'm gonna put it all down and most of it won't even get a kill, hey predator me I love revenge spawns and the extra 250 points also we're gonna win whilst you coat tail hangers pray your run and gunners don't let you lose by to much."
Run and gunners get to see COD at it's best and at it's worst we win rounds and feel great we lose rounds and still feel great because we always finsih top.
On the objective modes we play like Chuck Norris we relive the 80's action warfilms we dodge a RPG and C4 5 people before grabbing the win from a team who was better in every way but had no idea how to controll the objective. Campers? oh they got a AC130 ~meh~ I got 40 kills, 4500 points and a +KD.
Rushers win campers hang on for the ride.
