A term given to anyone who stays in one place and kills other players in an online FPS video game. Sometimes confused with a sniper, or a defensive person. Gets lame when he/she attempts to stay in the same spot the hole match of the game and shots a spawning-point over and over again just to get kills.
"You fucking camper!"

"It's called defence."

Normally, a camper is a player in a First Person Shooteronline game, such as counter strike or Halo 3, that stays in one place and waits for an enemy to walk in their general area so that they can surprise their foe and get a kill. This method is effective but requires little skill and is used by noobs (people who are new to game or are unskilled) in order to get kills because they cannot get them any other way and are trying to get them as easy as possible. guarding territories that have to do with the game type or sniping does not count as camping. campers try to defend themselves by saying that it is tactically smart to do to get kills, which does not justify the fact that they suck so bad that they have to camp to get kills instead of practicing the game and getting better then other players. instead, they always use the same cheap strategy. Popular places for campers are Counter Strike, Halo 1,2,3, And Call of Duty 3,4,5, and 6.

Camping is a method of playing a FPS (first person shooter) game. Camping is the act of sitting stationary in one spot throughout a game, returning to said spot if killed or forced to move. Camping generally gives the *camper an unfair advantage over other players.

Camping is not to be confused with strategic game-play or holding of a specific location where a player needs to use logic and awareness to hold the area in question. This is playing the game how it is supposed to be played.
Look at that idiot running past the same spot consistently, i think i will stay here and kill him until he learns his lesson. <-- not camping

I will hold of this building in an attempt to increase the chances of my team winning the game. <-- not camping

I will head glitch in this corner behind this box with a 60% view of the map and hope someone runs past me. <--camper

I will run around the map pre firing corners with no interest in my team mates or the overall match <-- idiot

Someone who plays an online FPS and sits in one spot shooting in thing in his line of site. He never moves, and is usually fodder for a camper killer's knife. CAMPING IS NOT THE SAME AS SNIPING!! Snipers are well hidden and use sniper rifles, and normaly move after a kill so as to hidde their location. Also, covering a strategic position in a Search and Destroy or Capture the Flag mission is not camping. It is mearly a good defensive strategy. Campers are hated by most other players.
Camper- " HA-HA you got owned!"

Gamer- " We'll see about that" (knifes Camper)

Camper- "Hey, what was that?!"

Gamer- "look at the map once in a while."

Camper- "I'll just go right back you know"

Gamer- (snipes camper from previous location)

person who :
Is stationed more than 5 seconds on a spot

Is unseeable without checking every spot
Is in prone so even if u look everywhere they just lie somewhere camouflaged.
Is unfair playing and doesn't have skill enough (nube) to just walk around.
A person who has a sniper equiped is no camper because it is the purpose of a sniper rifle to kill someone at a safe , unseen range and not to make close quarter kills!
Killed by camper:U f*cking camp3r g3t sum sklLLs and d0nt camp!

A derogatory term referring to a individual in a first-person shooter who uses strategy and tactics rather than quick fingers, e-thuggery and lack of a social life to win team/objective based games.
