Person in an online FPS who actually puts some thought into the game. The people who camp are generally regarded as low-life noobs who have no skill by the very people they kill (usually 10th or 15th Prestige faggots who think they're invincible).
The only reason campers have a bad name is because of the people who constantly sit in the enmy spawn (aka spawn camping
) or next to a weapon/vehicle spawn point to whore dozens of kills with said weapons.
If you've ever played Demolition in CoD, you will often find the defending team camping it up and living the good life while the people who rush start crying and whining about their now negative KDR for the match.
Before you bitch about it being lame, try it out and see how many kills you get.
15th Prestige douchebag: meh, you're nothing but a supressor-using camper bitch.
Random dude form other team: That is the reason you lost.....By the way thanks for the Attack Dogs, Blackbird, and Care Package you let me earn.
15th Prestige douchebag: FFFFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUU!!!!!!!
A term given to those in an online multiplayer game (usually FPS) who will place themselves in a strategic position and wait for an extended period of time until a target enters his field of view. The position usually allows one to surprise the target and allows the "camper" to eliminate him with ease. There are variants of this such as camping an item to repeatedly gain its benefits and defending a critical location.
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 runs around like a retard and subsequently becomes a campers prey. Camper makes a kill*
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.
A title given to someone who attempts to protect vital objectives in a game while everyone else goes off to get killed individually because they have no concept of "team."
"U FUKIN CAMPER QUIT CAMPING U FAG"
"I'm guarding the flag, you dumbass. Learn to play."
Any gamer who stands in place for more than 3 seconds, or (God forbid) actually croutches. Doing this in Counter-Strike will have everyone on the server hating your guts.
"OMG camper F4G!!"
"OMG fukng camprs!"
In first person shooters, a cry of outrage at one who was a successful target of a stationary person, usually a sniper
"You expect a sniper to walk around?"
Found in online multiplayer games. A camper stays in one spot and waits for enemies to walk past him before attacking.
"You're such a lame camper!"
Used by very sad and lonely people in online computer games such as MOH. The term used for anyone who should dare to shoot anyone else who belongs to a 'clan'. Whatever you do... if you should happen to be walking upto a door and it opens from the other side.... DO NOT shoot the person coming through... you will be called a camper! No matter how 'lucky' you were, you are a camper! Under no circumstances attempt to plead your innocence, the 'clan' members will gang up on you and get you kicked! You can't win.
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!
you god damm camper fag
Camping, as defined above, is the strategy of sitting in a single stragic spot, waiting for someone to come into your vision, however, it should be noted that camping is not always a fair strategy.
Some campers will camp an area where it is nearly impossible to be killed if they refuse to move. An example would be squating behind a box in an enclosed room with a single entrance. An opponent would have to position himself infront of the doorway without any cover, and try to hit the small ammount of the camper that is visible. In this way, the camper can get kill after kill, even when his position is known, and in 1 on 1 matches, this would become very frustrating and ruin the game for the opponent.
OMG LOL I R0><0RZ CAUSE I CAN SIT IN ONE SPOT ALL DAY LOL!!!!!!!!11111111
