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!

Derogatory term used for someone who can actually master the team aspect fo most games, but has no one else to use this aspect with. "Campers" generally are seen in FPS games, especially ones based on a team mindset. These campers normally defend an objective, or wait for a tactical advantage.
OMG, he shot me in the back! Camper!!!

You're defending the objective? Go kill someone, camper!

In the context of restaurants , campers are people who socialize at a table or group of tables as their objective, rather than ordering food. Campers will typically order coffee or other beverages and one or two of a party might order a real meal, however their stay will often be two or more hours. Typically 24-hour restaurants like Denny's will be the most common location to find campers, often a group of "regulars". Some waitstaff hate campers because they occupy a table for long periods of time, preventing other customers from being seated there - but other waitstaff recognize that a steady group of campers can represent a steady flow of business, and upon building rapport with the regulars can reap handsome gratuities, as well.
(waitress #1) "I have a bunch of campers at table 7 who have been there 3 hours"
(waiter #2) "Relax, just seat these old folk who just walked in at table 6 and the problem will take care of itself"

player, especially in a first person shooter, who plants himself behind doors, in shadowed corners, behind crates, etc. and waits for enemy players to rush by and be shot from behind. Campers are called so because they choose such a spot and will often, for the duration of the game, not move from there or will only move to find a new 'camping' spot. The word is usually used in a derogatory manner, but the strategy is in fact quite legitimate. Happens in real life doesn't it? Snipers are, by default, campers as they have to find that perfect spot where they remain undiscovered and can lay down hellfire upon their enemies from afar.
damn! got n00bed by a camper!! >.<

AMBUSH!! thrice bedamned campers!

Literally speaking, a camper is someone in online games who sits about waiting for somebody to come to them.

I think a more precise definition is somebody who does not have knowledge of an opponents whereabouts/proximity, yet still stays in one place.

It would be accurate to say that the majority of campers have little to no skill, usually they resort to this tactic when they have had enough of being killed playing games 'properly'.

Camping is not considered in the 'spirit' of online first-person-shooters.

People who move around killing could easily do the 'role' of a camper, unfortunately it would be very rare for this to work the other way round.

Campers generally have a high Kill to Death ratio, but will mostly end with less kills and it will be very rare for them to win a match against anything but poor players.

Camping is only partly excusable when player is a sniper or in tactical games, especially ones without re-spawning.
"Why is that guy camping so much - doesn't he get bored?!"

"I'm sure he tried it our way, but failed miserably and has resorted to what you see now."

"But there's a whole game going on out here that campers never see!"

"I know, people should realise you need to lose to get good, not pussy out and camp."
