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."

A phrase coined by forgetful gamers describing someone they forgot killed them in the exact same spot not 10 seconds earlier. It's a form of strategy that keep your kills higher then your deaths. That's how you win wars. No modern wars were ever won by people running around in the open. Any tactician will tell you.

It is often frowned upon especially during deathmatch style games since it is assumed everyone is running around and blasting. During the chaos a camper can rack up a good score easily. But if you want to win you have to play smart.
Gamer 1: F*ckng camper! That's such bllsh*t!

Gamer 2: Well instead of running into that room again, throw a grenade, be more cautious, or avoid the room entirely and force the camper to move. A camper will move if you don't voluntarily give him an easy shot.

Gamer 1: Whatever it's still bllsh*t.

An online player who places him/herself in a single spot for a prolonged period of time while continuously killing other online players who roam into their line of sight. Campers are most common in First-Person Shooter games like Call of Duty.

In video games it is a sad, sad, cowardly player who would have more fun sitting in one than actually running around to earn their kills and experience the full extent of the game. Basically they are just pussies who are horrible at the game and can't get a kill without sneaking up on someone or having some sort of tactical advantage.
That damned camper has been sitting in one spot the who game

a term given to a one-night-stand who will just not leave your place the next morning even after giving them the signal it is time for them to go. A camper typically stays for an hour or more. There are 5 stages of campers and each stage gets worse.

Note to editor: I just submitted a definition with all the stages, but saw that shorter may be better. But of course, do whatever you like with both entries.
"Dude. She was definitely a stage 5 camper. After staying at my place for 3 hours after we woke up, she still would not leave. She checked her facebook on my computer, ate MY food, and even asked to start a movie. Seriously bro, I can't handle campers."
