I've noticed that camping has become a major hot topic in Ghosts right now, so I want to know what you think about it.
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. However, I have noticed that when I do play with my party, we always point out where the campers are. C4 is a major help in this case, as we can kill the camper without having to worry about dying again.
That's my opinion and I hope you'll respect it, like I'll respect whatever your thoughts are on this playstyle.
I think from the choice of perks and weapons in this game and from the different elements that were included in the map designs that it is pretty obvious that Infinity Ward considers sniping (camping) a valid play style and encourages it. (just as they encourage run-n-gunning and other play styles)
It is a preference thing. But there is no doubt that good snipers are a force to be reckoned with in real world situations and in games like this.
if you run in the sights of a camper and die on such a huge map then your bad, and your even worse if he continues to kill you from the same spot over and over again, on huge maps you shouldn't complain about campers, let em be there are 5 other enemies you can kill
I'm not stupid enough to run back to a camper and revenge kill him. That's the best way to lose good stats... I only kill them when I've respawned, restarted whatvever streak I'm on and I'm roaming the map again. I think of how to kill them and the best way to do it
any play style can be dealt with.
unless you hack the game you cant counter or account for everything.
either you are full stealth but you will loose close encounters or you decide to use equiment that gives you away or you are not full stealth but thermal will give you away.
then you have to consider that footsteps can give you away, sat com can give you away, not using cold blooded can give you away or if you decide to stay in a certain area a simple grenade laucher with or without dangerclose can kill you very easily.
i found the rocketlauncher from the support class to be a very awesome weapons since you can pinpoint where you want it to go.
complaining about a style = simply admitting you got outsmarted.
I totally agree with your statement that "any play style can be dealt with"!!!!!
As a player, you need to adapt. I often hunt those that are camping, my KD goes for a dive but there is some major satisfaction in it.
Camping, rushing, hiding, running, ducking, jumping, sprinting, covering, shooting, throwing, dying, surviving, fighting, sucking, beatings, losing, winning, pushing, holding, moving, evading, avoiding, cunning, and newbies = part of COD.
Accept everything that comes with the game, period. What others do, or don't do, whether we like it or not is not our decision to make or force upon. People will do what every it is they want, good and bad.
