I must admit, ive started to camp on occasion now.
Every previous COD i have been a rusher, but this time round, with big maps, and uniforms that easily blend in to the backgrounds, its so much easier to slow that pace right down.
Ive been awful at sniping on every previous COD, but sniping is so easy on this one that ive earned the ghillie suit(which in turn makes camping more attractive)
I used to moan about campers, but they were always easy to deal with. they tended to stay in one place, and when you got them, they would head back there.
with my "camping" class i will get my kill, then relocate, so i kind of camp my way all around the map, like a boy scout...
to be fair, when i am using my "camping" class i probably cover more of the map than most rushers who spawn/die/spawn/die
Some would argue that is called defending. But camping realistically is quite difficult in this game, with all the many doors and entrances to rooms. You find one door, then wonder where you just died from, then realise theres another door! Its Doorception!
Ok, danger close and noob tubes means campers have no chance. That being said I think camping can be a viable role and important for your teams victory, helping spawn teammates near you, as long as you are in a desirable location for attacking objectives, and when I camp I'm almost guaranteed my streaks, which will be whatever I think will help my team win. I only use a sniper when camping and don't care what anyone has to say about it. People hate being killed on these games lol. ive even been called a camper on search, IMO you cant camp on SnD
Off the Grid = useless.
I have sworn by stealth, Ghost/Assassin Pro/UAV Jammer etc. in every COD that I have played, but in this game hiding from UAV is a waste of 3-points. Personally, I find enemy teams struggle to co-ordinate Sat-COM usage adeptly or frequently enough to warrant equipping the counter-perk. If you're hiding from 'Eyes on' painting to the mini-map, what is the point? Afterall the enemy has 'Eyes On' you - so what difference does your dot on the mini-map make?
As I say, I have sworn by the UAV counter-perks - I hate feeling violated by the knowledge that the enemy knows where I am, but in this game it is a non-factor. Equipping Wire-Tap for those 3-points instead is a better option I find, or using both sound-perks instead gives you greater 'one-up' than Off the Grid provides.
I can literally count the times where I have thought "oh, I could have done with Off the Grid there" - I don't even run it in my specialist set-up IIRC. I think now, I keep a Off the Grid class for strong players/Wire-Tap users/co-ordinated teams - otherwise, for random pubs, it's just a waste of 3-points to me.
As regards camping, yep - it is annoying, but what can you do? It's a great game - but you can't legislate for the community.
This game addresses the TF LMG fags, but instead breeds the Thermal sight sniper.. heck the Thermal sight anything. Vector, AK-12, Remington... I've seen 'em all!
In my honest opinion, it is a bit of a headache, especially when people equip Dead Silence/Amplify and/or Off The Grid with their camping classes... It's even worse than MW3, when people used Assassin Pro with portable radars and we all know how OP Assassin Pro was.
Really? I didn't know it was OP. What did it do outside of removing you off of radar and keeping a red name hanging over your head? People want to bash a perk that was passive. Maybe if people stopped relying on radar so much we can finally move on from this debate. Camping isn't a problem, not being able to deal with campers is the real issue.
You will always have camping. And with this game having KEM strikes then yes campers. I just wish they can play the objective. Hc kc is the worst. People run by tags just to keep there kd up. Cranked is great objective is kill and if you dont boom start over
As Tru11 says, you got beat.
People come to the forums, complain about something, and then say "I have no problem dealing with them"...
I call BS.
Nobody complains about what they can overcome; people only complain when they get beat. Simple as that.
Camping is NOT a new issue (hell it has never been an issue). If I stalk around and choose not to check a corner or watch my flank and get shot in the back, who's fault is that!?
Can we please grow up and stop complaining that the enemy is not glowing red with an arrow over their head saying "shoot me!"...? If you want to ONLY shoot at people who run out in front of your gun, too f'ing bad. Not gonna happen. If people don't like it, they should pull out a Nintendo system and play Duck Hunt damnit.
I meant to say: "No, I don't think camping is a problem"
