Earlier I was in a lobby with a guy that was doing a lot of QS. I'm not the greatest at it and he was definitely better than me. It was annoying, I admit. But I still hung around for several matches to see what he was doing. He was using the VKS I think its called. So I unlocked it and, with an ACOG I guess it takes a lot of practice to do it well because the sway on that gun is atrocious. I'm going to try using that gun a little more and see how it works out. But that was a few matches out of over 100 ... and he was the only guy in the lobby doing it. Not what I would consider "massive" amounts of QS.

It isn't a myth... there are a Ton of Campers in this game and the game gives them plenty of tools to do so.

But what a lot of the Complainers don't get.... is that it has never been easier to hunt down and kill the campers. Apparently.. adapting is hard.

There's so much complaint because people think that snipers and defenders are campers. It's one thing to sit in a corner in TDM and wait for someone to walk by and another to watch the bomb you just planted, or to recognize that at least somebody needs to watch the goal in Blitz.

Camper spots become predictable and it's not that hard to take them out.

There's no such thing as eliminating camping. It's a strategy and has been in FPS before COD and will be in FPS after COD.

There will always be people shouting "CAMPER!" as it's their favorite scapegoat from being killed. Countless times I have maneuvered through a map and had to pause and let someone pass so I can shoot them in the back because either I heard them coming or they were revealed on the minimap and I knew they were moving in a particular direction. So when the choice is to jump in front of someone and risk your streak to prove you aren't a camper for a "fair" gunfight or just pause a second and shoot them in the back, I pick the pause. Very seldom do campers get the best of me on a routine basis as I am fairly keen on checking corners when I enter an area and if I encounter a camper in a particular area, I just don't go back lol (unless it's an area where the objective is located). I have had people call me a camper if I stop in a corner and let my health regen after a close gun fight, or duck to the side to reload a weapon.

There seem to be less campers since the influx of x-mas noobs.  Either that or people are feeling more comfortable now that they have had the game a while therefore moving around more.

I've experienced a lot more camping than I have quickscoping. Partially because I am a sniper, and quickscoping is SIGNIFICANTLY harder in Ghosts than any other cod.

With regards to QS'ing it depends what time of day you're playing. Late afternoon/early evening is when the kids are on and they love to QS.

Granted, I've got just a little over 10 hours under my belt so far ... but I would really like to know what game the camper complainers are playing. Because I've done KC, TDM, and Domination and, frankly, I'm not seeing the massive amount of camping some people are claiming is out there.



While we're at it, where's all the quick scoping? I've seen more quick scopers than I have campers ... but there's not any more quick scopers in this game than there are in any COD.



So obviously we are playing two different games. I'm playing Call of Duty: Ghosts. What game are you guys playing? Because it ain't Ghosts.


TDM (both HC and Core) is camp heaven.

... but...

... I haven't seen more camping in Ghosts than any other title.

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

I played some TDM over the past few days to boost the ol' k/d with some Christmas Noob kills.  I will tell you what, I was probably the worst offender of the "camping" thing.  Anyone who plays with me knows that Otis can't sit still for more then 20 seconds, but honestly that is all it would take to get at least two kills and then move on to another spot.

Point being, I have been seeing a lot more movement in this game.

I set up a tent and polish my Coleman lifetime achievement award on certain maps myself.

My experience is there is a lot more outright camping in Core modes vs. HC.
