Camping has always been one of the biggest issues with the Call of Duty franchise when it comes to Call of Duty online but this is one problem that will probably not be addressed in Black Ops 2.
***"Although this would never be implemented in a game series that prides itself on realism"*** CoD prides itself on realism? Is that why aim assist and quick-scoping is present?
fix the random respwning system first. in MW3, every player get respawned randomly regardless if he is close to the enemy team or not. its a clusterfuck!
How do you fix this sort of issue, insta kill anybody staying still for too long!? Short of a crap load of random respawn points all over the area there aren't any other options! Though having a grim reaper show up and kill the camping players would be rather funny IMO.
They could implement a system that slowly does damage to the player if they don't move a certain distance in time (or starts taking away points/kdr), or they could just go the good route and make actual good maps that don't encourage camping by having multiple paths to locations, there are reasons why there are no/little campers in games like Counter Strike, Team Fortress and Unreal Tournament.
Maybe create an anxiety meter that slowly increases the longer you remain still. In effect, the player gets blurred vision, lower accuracy, or increased chance of a weapon jamming.
That's actually a really good idea, nice
Design levels that don't favor campers. I don't think much will be fixed or improved in Black Ops 2. I go by the history of the last 4 COD games when saying this.
That's a good idea. Grim reaper perk. Anytime ur killed by a camper the reaper will hunt em down lol.
Exactly. You can't stop camping. A good camper switches camping spots every few kills.
While Call of Duty does get any number of things wrong, this is more a case of 'hate the player, not the game'. Camping will be prevalent in this game, as it will be in future iterations of the series and many other great FPS titles. That's how it has been for the biggest multiplayer shooters in the last decade and that's how it's always going to be. Unless you're Tribes, camping is just going to be a culture of poor gamers that you'll have to tolerate.
in any FPS but even in COD4 it wasn't that bad, the problem is the amount of extras COD gives which makes camping a huge problem in COD.
Don't know much about CoD, but I'm pretty sure it had dedicated servers of some sorts. I doubt a person connection could handle every player in the game.
EVERYONES A SNIPER.
realism? in COD?
Ah I remember the days of quake anticamp. Stay still too long it gives you a warning. Still don't move it kicks you from the game.
It needs BUTT CRAMPS! Oh Garry's Mod Zombie Survival, the fun we had together...
The maps fixed camping in MW3.
Im a run and gunner tbh. Cant stay still me but tbh i dont worry about campers to much and tbh id miss the buggers be that they where not there. They been there from COD1 i remember admining the old barfly servers on PC and making the punks turn into cows disarming them of there weapons and making the bbq those where the days. I make a map either way in my head of the camp spots when i play and just check them out as i go makes fo easy kills tbh. If i know some idiot is gonna be sitting thre it adds to my kills. More effective though back in the day when you played for kills and not killstreaks. Now days that camper has a favoured option in of the killstreak take that away you have a game again imo. Focus on the weapons what makes that weapon hard to use. What alternate fire modes does that weapon have. What recoil matches the real life recoil of that weapon etc. Im sick of all the crap in the sky winning the game for the kiddys and there streaks no skill in that at all. For me Black ops 2 all ready seems to be adding more and more too that. Make players have to think about there next move if i jump of this will my landing unsteady me and make my next shot harder to take?. How mcuh will me running effect my aim. What the hell did they add the likes of Kick etc for on mw3 for they removed any skill required from the game. COD4 was the last game that was in anyway any good for me and thats just because the PC had a community playing clan play onit and still do. ESLvs has all my time atm but even at that COD4 requires little to no skill to aim a weapon. You have to go back to COD1 before theres a learning curve. Esp in the mp44 bar and rifles and sniper. just dosen't feel like you have to try anymore. Its sad cause here was a time COD was worth the money.
As long as this game continues to rewards players for things that influence camping, there is no "fixing" it. I really dislike this game and feel like that if it weren't for this franchise, we would've seen much more from other genres this gen, but I just wanted to say this.
Camping lol. Every FPS in history has campers, he'll I do most of my camping sat looking at a flag on conquest in B3. It'll never stop.
And now I wait for people to discover than the noob tube is the ultimate anti camper gun ._.
you can camp in any game what a stupid post all games have campers not just cod
Camping is the reason why COD sells so well. Because 2 hit can kill Noobs can always get a couple of kills by camping and feel like they are a gaming god.
It won't be fixed because killstreaks encourage camping. I remember back in Call of Duty there was a mod that would make it so if you sat in one spot too long your character would make a loud farting noise, and have a big cloud of green gas appear around him revealing his position.
Camping is in every first person shooter, I've yet to play a single competitive FPS online that didn't have campers. Call Of Duty didn't invent camping. In fact, in game modes like Search And Destroy and Domination, your objective involves camping. The best advice I give people is to roll with a whole team and make sure you use call outs. When I play with my team we make sure to check scores and if we notice someone camping, we make it a point to slap them.
Campers arnt that bad, sure its annoying but just go back, chuck in a flash bang and waste the guy. Problem solved, worked since COD4 dont see why it wont work for the newest COD. :)
Camping is one of the main reason I left this series years ago...it's b.s.
