How to counter campers?

Black Ops II Xbox 360

Camping is the most annoying thing in the game over lag, head glitching etc so how does everyone tackle this or what do you think Treyarch could do to prevent this? As their aim was to cut down on camping with the new improved ghost perk, I play search alot so it's not just a case of going back and killing them although if someone is sat in a corner in a big building you can usually kill them but what about the smaller building or the small corners that people are less likely to watch? I think Treyarch should add a 30 second timer and if someone stays in 1 place for more than 30 seconds kicks them from the game and they are unable to join back.

What do you guys think?

I think stealth camping is a thing of the past because a simple UAV will show up every enemy team member on your HUD who is stationary even for a second.

You can't reload or go prone undetected, never mind sit in a corner.

So while camping per se is still there, every camper is now highlighted on the enemy HUD.

No the guys on the move with Ghost on aren't on the HUD, just the Camper and the guys without Ghost on.

I agree that campers are annoying but it doesn't bother me too much because they've essentially paid £40/$60 to stand in the same spot. To make it worse on them I think once you find a camper you should just leave them alone and enjoy the rest of the map, they will soon stop camping when they find they're all on their lonesome all the time.

I don't think it's possible to completely get rid of campers, from a development point of view, as they'd have to get rid of corners, buildings, scenery etc. What we can do as a community is leave the camper once we've found them so it spoils their game experience and not other people's. It makes me feel better too when I see they finish bottom of the leaderboard or they leave the game because they've had a rubbish time stood on their own.

Like in MW2 camping cunts were no problem to get rid of. All you had to do was wack on danger close noob tube rpg and commando pro. Commando was awesome for campers, you could knife a dude in the corner of a room from the entrance.

I cant not believe people still find a way to complain about camping. This has got to be a joke. UAVs are constantly up. Red dots are all over the mini map. If you cant kill a guy thats not moving then you should go play family game night cause theyve made this game so easy a 5 yr old can figure it out. Quite honestly this game is nothing like war anymore, its pacman meets connect the dots, just running around to the UAVs.   

Im gonna assume that you were joking making this thread.

What do you guys think?

You mean making Ghost useless wasn't enough?

You mean getting a sight that paints targets in a red box wasn't enough?

You mean getting a sight that sees through walls wasn't enough?

You mean UAV spam that makes MW3 seem tame wasn't enough?

Good freaking grief.

That's my opinion but it should be yours ;-),
