camping and stealth

Call of Duty Ghosts General Discussion

camping and stealth

a lot of people get the misconception that camping is associated with stealth. camping in my opinion is because of map design and not because of any particular playstyles. fell free to express your opinions about what you think causes camping.

I don't think anything causes camping. I think it is a player choice and a viable combat to run and gun. Its like ying and yang. Run and Gun is Ying and Steath is Yang. In Black Ops 2 Ying was dominant and therefore threw the balance and tipped Run and Gun into a more favorable position.

I think its going to balanced in Ghosts.

Again camping isn't wrong or cheap. Its a good playstyle to use.

The problem I see there is that you can have a Stealth-Runner as well.

If you are playing vs. avarage opponents, using an SMG+Silencer, as well as steath/agility perks, you'll be unstoppable

With all do respect, why are you placing what anyone says any importance in regards to how one should play? Who gives two ---ts about what one player calls the other?

Amen to that. I don't even know why I even bother reading these kinds of threads. I already know what's going to be posted. The sheer lack of creativity in discussion making is astonishing. Are people that narrow minded?!?!

Players allow others to peg them as so and so, and when they allow that they probably end up playing the game in a worse way.

A lot of people have the misconception there is something wrong with camping. This causes developers to put asinine attachments and equipment  in effort to appease the "play how I want you to play" crowd.

COD is a shooter. There will always be camping.

Why?

People have this odd desire to not be shot... and find camping works for them.

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

I agree. I would much rather go 15 and 4 vs. 20 and 19. The only penalty in the game for dying is the other team getting a point, and I figure the more I can limit them the better.

I have really never understood the negative connotation associated with "camping". In real life combat, cover is a good thing - if you are behind cover and your enemy isn't, you have the advantage. To appease the run-and-gunners the maps have been all but stripped of good, defensible cover - and I think that runs contrary to the original concept, and I it's a shame.

Yea, camping is a scapegoat when it comes to shooters,  casuals glorify run and gun, but hate campers because it's their weakness.    Camping is a part of survival.    If people don't like cover and camping, then they should go play Smash TV. 

Yea the maps should be designed for camping to be viable, but also at least one alternate way for camps to get flanked, so

they aren't so safe.  but yea that's why it's good to have medium to large maps included. small maps are just terrible and only cater to run and gun.

Camping, like most actions taken in a fast paced shooter like Call of Duty, is purely a strategic decision.

In order to be an effective player, you have to continuously adapt your playstyle to fit the situation you're presented with.

If everyone on the other team is camping, clearly, you're not going to get many kills by camping yourself. You'll have to venture out and find them... maybe turn on Recon, and throw some flashbangs. Maybe get a heartbeat sensor so you can find them around corners.

On the flip side, if the other team is running around in the open all the time, it's hard to argue against waiting in a corner as a viable strategy to get kills.

There's nothing you're going to be able to say that will get a camper to stop camping. What you have to do is change your playstyle in such a way that camping against you is no longer a winnable strategy.
