I started in W@W

I ran all over the place, but I sucked so I got shot all the time and did terrible. I hated it so much I gave up on the game.  A friend had MW2 and we play the spec ops together and I loved it so I thought I would give COD another go.

I went to MP and got shot up again, so I started to camp.  I never did well, but I did better.  The one thing I noticed was people going 20+/10- while I was going 5-2.  Someone once said to me "The problem is you are waiting for people to run in front of your gun". So I started to move again, but cautiously..

I find that the only times I get killed by a hardcore camper is:

- When I do not play cautiously

- When I go back for the revenge and do not think he may have moved positions and is watching me come back.

How can I get mad, when it is my own fault?  People who hate being killed by campers, should seriously think about how they play.  But as TRU11 says, the only people I do not like to play with are the ones who are only concerned with killing and are not helping the team win (in games where killing is not the only objective)

This final paragraph is where my thread missed out. Great response RL, thanks man.

To every one who posted, and those who will read this and post after remember this:

Not everyone can play as "quickly, speedy" as you, some players prefer slower game play, others really prefer to hide and sneak up on you.

Question then ---- Why does the rushing class justify their game play as better than the rest? Where is this unwritten rule that says "Everyone rush because its better"?

I always find it funny when people say "play the game how it is supposed to be played".  yes there are tactics for a faster paced game, but when I opened my game box, I do not remember ever seeing :

"Read page 3 for instructions on how to play the game properly".

I think rushing is the class that gets the least bashing. I think this is for some very simple reasons.

How can you complain about a guy that came rushing full tilt towards you and still managed to kill you? What can you call him as you sat there unable to shoot him down? You have no one to blame but yourself.

Rushing is fun! Fast and hard, when it works out and you end up being the only member of your team coming in behind the enemy with all their backs to you it is sweet.

In general terms every other method is either sneaky(which is still good gameplay in my book), or lucky(everyone needs some) or as some people call these "cowardly". We are in a GAME where no one can get hurt and yet people who camp or patrol are laid into because its cowardly.

COD is an arcade game, fast and furious, therefore lends itself towards this method.

Saying all of this I am a rusher, no doubt about that. I love it because no waiting around, just go, kill or die.

Also I find I end up tunnel visioning if I camp, then enemy player comes around the corner and it just takes me too long to react and I'm dead...

Thats good that you prefer to rush, I agree that moving forward is mroe exciting but it doesnt necesarrily make me better.

Let me ask you a question the onlyzeone:

How does a "rusher" deal with another "rusher" pushing into their spawn killing eveyone as you state? Do you not stop and try to kill that person, or do you "rush" into the open seeking the enemy rusher out?

People just get upset because someone else's style is making life uncomfortable for them to play their own style as freely as they would like.  All along giving no regard to the fact that their style has the same effect on someone else.  Not that any of us are going to change the way that we play but we need to learn to complain less about the other guy and focus more on honing our own gameplay to make life as uncomfortable as possible on the other guy.  If he's got it too easy then we probably aren't winning the fight.  Personnally, I enjoy taking others out of their comfort zone and forcing them to switch classes just to offset what I'm doing.  Then I'll switch my class just to throw them off their game some more.  Psychological warfare is the part of war that often gets lost in the gun skill discussions.  I rush more than I camp but I use whatever style or combo of styles is needed to keep the enemy off balance. 

Just last night I was on Hijacked and killed a couple of guys while standing behind a barrel and looking at the doorway coming from the A spawn.  I had just got there when the two guys popped the corner and I heard in the death mic "Yea he's a hard camper. He's been camping there the whole time."  They were wrong about me personnally being there the whole time but the important thing is that's what they believe.  And that tells me that they are going to be looking for someone in that spot from now on and trying to flank it.  So I made sure to take advantage of that information and put myself in spots where I would have a good line of sight to the flanking routes.  More easy kills for me.  I know they were hating life but I did my job and won the psychological war.

Well, to me, a mixture of rushing and camping is the best. Be cautious BUT pounce on any opportunity to attack head on. People simply here the word "camper" and I bet 1 million dollars that everyone has a different interpretation of what it means. I mean, think about the word noob. It started off as meaning a newbie or new player but what does it mean today? It's all just video game slang and we really shouldn't take it personally IMO. Everyone is there own person/personality who grew up in different circumstances so we will ALL approach a problem differently. It doesn't matter if it's a video game. It applies to everything we individually do.
