heh, Cod is camper friendly

ddurand12142d ago

must be his first COD game.

gameplay encourages camping for that next kill towards your killstreak.

Must be his first shooter**

Two types of players:
Campers and kamikaze.

ddurand12141d ago

camping for kills to reach killstreaks works.

You aren't funny as if you look at Black Ops 1 and then this if you can say besides graphics do they look the same then that is simply crazy.

Every shooter is camper friendly, its way too early to tell if this one will be worse than the others.

Sometimes the game mode calls for camping, like Domination, which sees you set up a parameter around a base that you control. Search And Destroy calls for camping as well, when you are on defense you need to set up and defend the bomb sites.

You will just never please everyone, but I thought the MP trailers looked great.

***"Every shooter is camper friendly"***

No, not for run and gun games. Killzone 2 is the most anti-camper game I've ever played, on consoles anyway.

That MP trailer for BO2 is what they should have showed at E3. I think I may have to take back my claim about BO2 not breaking MW3's launch week record because the recent trailer actually looked sorta good.

ChunkyLover532142d ago

I played Killzone 2, there were campers in it. You cant have a shooter without some campers. I've seen much worse camping on Battlefield 3, where snipers lay in bushes just scoped in for 10, 15 minutes at a time.

Call Of Duty didn't invent camping, and if your getting camped, your playing the wrong game modes. There are more modes than Team Death Match.

There is realistic camping like how snipers do in real life (BF3), then there's sitting in the corner in a room on a small map waiting for someone to walk in to Knife them or try and grab an easy kill...ala CoD

I agree there is camping in every MP shooter, to a certain extent but COD is by far the worst offender this gen....


The most anti camper game ive played this gen was Uncharted 2, the weapon set up, multiple routes to any spot made good tactics key....Killzone 2 had horrible Base Camping, other than that it was great...I also agree that the ability to be prone in BF3 leads to camping. Camping wasnt half as bad on BFBC2

Outside_ofthe_Box2142d ago


Base camping in KZ2 was a result of uneven teams or people failing to throw spawn grenades.

Outside_ofthe_Box2142d ago

Yes, there are campers in it, but that doesn't mean it is camper friendly. Anyone can rack up a few kills by staying in one spot in any game. It's all about if games have anti-caming measures in them. Staying in one spot in KZ2 is not recommend at all. Actually I like when people do camp because after they kill me I go after them to get a nice shot to the back of their head and if not I'll tell my squadmates about them so that they can get a free kill. Also KZ2's warzone has objectives changing dynamically that in itself promotes people to move about including campers if they want to continue padding their K/D ratio that is.

BF3 is definitely camper friendly with that prone BS. Prone should never be in a game for balancing purposes alone, unless if you are trying to make a simulator of course.

No one is saying CoD invented camping. Camping is actually nothing more than a tactic. Camping is an unfavored tactic, one obvious reason is that it's a boring thing to do especially if everyone is doing it. Nothing gets done if everyone is camping.

Ducky2142d ago (Edited 2142d ago )

The solution you've given are:
A.) You know where they are so you're prepared
B.) Tell your team-mates

You can do both those things in virtually any shooter.
KZ2's warzone was an objective-based mode. Most objective-based modes have less campers (or well, unless you're around the objective). Play TDM, and there'll be no shortage of campers.

Outside_ofthe_Box2142d ago (Edited 2142d ago )

^^^ I was giving 2 quick points. I didn't want to go in depth as this isn't a killzone article.

Camping in KZ2 is definitely not the most efficient way to rack up kills in KZ2. KZ2 doesn't have a TDM mode unless someone creates a body count only match and people usually pick the radec academy map when making a body count only match because the map doesn't favor sniping and camping in a room to kill anyone that enters it isn't effective because players have high health/guns don't have low recoil so players actually have a chance to kill a camper even when caught off guard. And you can add that as C) on your list.

GammaSix2142d ago

of course, no recoil and guns do the same damage and we all know there is gonna be some overpowered nonsense

i also cant believe they listened to crybabies about "panic knifing" because theyre too incompetent to atleast have decent reaction skills

Kaos_Vll2141d ago

HA! i see someone's mad they won't get anymore easy panick kills!
