Ok, I need to clarify a few things here, because all I've read on here is a bunch of people who seem to think that everyone who uses Ghost is a camper.
Can we define "camper" please? For the love of all that is holy... I was in a game earlier today on Yemen and this kid shouted out, "F'n campers", after we both got killed from a guy shooting an assault rifle out of a window. I couldn't help but laugh.
I could go as far to say that 2/3 of the top 3 players in every game I've played have been "Camping" in some form or another. This is a commonality in these games and I can't believe people get pissed about this.
First off, for me, camping is not holding down an area, sitting in a room and shooting out a window, nor holding down the main territory of a map (the point of the map where everyone seems to congregate). I look at as the kid that sits in the far off corner of a map, in a low traffic area just waiting for some guy to run around the corner. And even so, that doesn't piss me off.
I cannot believe how so many people get agitated about campers. 90% of everyone does some form of camping in a game, whatever the defintion may be. If they aren't moving, they're camping? The problem lies with the average gamer nowadays. Recklessly run n gun, chase the red dot and if they get killed because someone was "head glitching" down a back alley or "camping" in a room with a window, they get pissed. No wonder why Nuketown is the most loved map from BO1... Even though Firing Range, WMD, Jungle, etc. trash that map in every way possible, the average person just wants to run around like a retard and get into the quick action. For me that is so arcadish it's disgusting.
Now for Ghost. For me it's useless. I spend more time now looking at my mini map to see when my marker goes from tranparent to solid, just so I know if I'm off the grid or not. Did this long flanking maneuver on Yemen tonight, got behind the enemy and was climbing the ladder of that scaffolding in the back of the map... Sure as ****, my marker shows solid to signify that I have shown up on the enemies radar. Within 2 seconds I had 3 guys coming at me. Dead.
Taking down UAV's with my black hat, circling around like an ******* while I'm looking up at the sky and keeping my crosshair on the UAV, just so I don't show up on the radar, lmao. It really is just a stupid perk now. I mean, I can use it, but it is so ridiculous. Rarely did I ever have a problem with a "camper" who would sit in corner and use ghost. In fact, the only map I remember campers being the most prevalent in on BO1, was Cracked. More than half of these garbage maps feel like Cracked to me.
I guess in the end, maybe I just prefer a game that isn't so fast paced. Where I don't have to spawn everytime and anticipate a close encounter with the enemy, seconds later.
I have a relatively small friends list on XBL. Out of the 5 friends I have that play this game, 2 have already sold it. Another is begging me to get Halo 4 cause he "Hates BO2". The other 2 only want to play Zombies. I personally think this game just isn't my style and will probably give it away. But hey, to each his own right? One thing I can assume is that the DLC sales for Activision won't be as good, with the way they conduct their PR. Ridiculous.
