Exactly. And as a new player the only way to get kills is to camp. Most of the people online are at high levels with amazing guns and perks. Can shoot you dead through a wall or while doing a backflip with one shot. The only way to get kills and level up is to camp.
Apparently all of the people in the comments have a basic misunderstanding of what camping is and in which kinds of games it belings.
CoD is not a tactical shooter. Okay maaaybe Ghosts, but every other one is a balls to the wall shootout game. It is intended for people to be running around shooting at everything that moves. When someone is camping, they’re not playing to the spirit of the game, and what many people effectively think should be the rules.
Most people don’t care about their stats or how the team is doing, they just want to have fun and kill people. So that crap about TDM is completey irrelevant to most people.
Now if it were a different kind of games where all the weapons were balanced to be realisticsand you actually had to take cover and all that stuff, then camping with a sniper rifle would be fine, because real sniper rifle are heavy and (usually) take a while to reload. Same thing with machine guns. But in games like this you can basically use a sniper rifle like a shotgun.
To sum up, camping isn’t the game’s design or intention, and people who hate campers look at them as cowards because they are.
I hate campers so much because personally, I see the game as a mobility challenge, where if you can move around well and know the map, you can get a really good game in, this especially points towards games like BO3 and Infinite Warfare with the jetpacks and stuff. So when camping, what's the point of even having those features if you're gonna camp and stay still all game?
