Tents And Sniper Rifles: OXCGN Looks At The Legitimacy Of Camping


"How often have you been running for that all important flag capture or lining up that perfect kill, when out of nowhere, a gunshot echoes across the landscape?

Next thing you know, the camera pans out to view your dead body and the screen is annoyingly telling you that xXUBeRFIghT3RXx* just delivered a headshot and is now in the lead."

But spawn-camping is a different story. For games that have set team spawn-points if there's some members of the opposing team just standing there killing anyone respawning then there's a serious problem.

I f'n hate spawn campers. Got no problem with normal camping though as that's merely part of game strategy.

At the end of the day if a player is exploiting a game's design to the detriment of fun gameplay, then I think it's much more a reflection on game designers than players who exploit such issues.

I really don't like snipers. I'm not the best multi player out there so I tend to run around nervously with a machine gun, hoping to kill others before they catch me. I hardly ever see snipers and just hate suddenly getting dead from afar. I don't mind people who sneak up on me and stab me, because they deserve the kill!

If people memorise a map they can tell where they are, but I don't tend to want to go that full-on.

Yeah, but man, flushing out a sniper is the most satisfying kill ever.

I love sitting underneath the window where they can't see me so I can just see the barrel of their rifle sticking out above me and cooking a grenade just right so it blows up in their face as soon as it reaches their height.

F'ing awesome.

I had a marksman's degree in riflery once, it was cool picking the heads of things from long distances . . .

snipers and stealth people in games are fine to camp, its what they are meant to do..

its a little more annoying when someone with a shotgun camps around a corner though...

Agree with most above. Camping (ie finding a suitable place to snipe from) is fine, but spawn camping totally destroys the fun of the game.
