Not to be confused with snipers. The role of a sniper is to take up a position from afar and pick enemies off from a distance and to cover their teammates and call out enemy positions to help the rest of the team. Due to the fact that a sniper is supposed to remain in a particular spot to achieve this, it is somewhat understandable that some people refer to sniping as camping... But those people are idiots because they are upset that running around with an AR or SMG are getting annihilated and make up for their pathetic score by talking smack and sh!t about snipers and campers. LET THIS BE KNOWN: SNIPERS ARE NOT CAMPERS, VICE VERSA.
Majority of the people who badmouth campers are the ones that repeatedly run to the spot where the camper is hiding and gets killed over and over and over trying to kill the camper. In this situation, the non camper is the n00b.
Camping is a perfectly legitimate strategy, but is criticized by a majority of the online community, usually because players get frustrated by being killed in such a fashion, it slows the game down and is considered an unskilful art. Idiots always resort to insulting a camper, who will most likely have a higher score than them. Incompetent admins sometimes kick them and the camper society becomes one of ridicule and resentment.
It isn’t illegal to position yourself in such a way that you have an advantage, that’s smart thinking and its part of the game. Some people need to grow some balls.
Random moron: OMG LAME FAG U SUXXORZ ONLY N00BS CAMP GETS SUM SKILLZ!!!!!11!!11!1111
I expect the definition to be voted down, but those of intelligence know who is right.
"I'm guarding the flag, you dumbass. Learn to play."
"You expect a sniper to walk around?"
To avoid being a 'camper', run around like a headless chicken waiting to be shot by an experienced 'clan' gamer.... who will then call you a n00b!
"There is a camper in the corner next to the brown house."
