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)

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.

Campers, by definition, are people who position themselves in one spot and stay there for extended periods of time, usually either to guard an objective or to surprise unwary passer-bys. Flamed the most on the ever-popular Counter-Strike. Campers are usually hated on by anyone that doesn't camp because people seem to think that getting a kill while running in front of 10 opponents is smarter than picking them off by surprise. It's sad to say, but people are so impatient that they're willing to call you a camper just because you stand in a spot for more than 15 seconds. The whole reason why people get mad at campers is because either 1.) They died because they decided to try and be "skilled" and ran out into the open with their gun firing only to be shot at by six other guys, or 2.) Someone who is too afraid to look for the camper because of the fear he will be killed, thus lowering his score. Just because someone decides to hide behind a box so he can kill people that pass by doesn't make him "n00b". If he's a "n00b", what does that make you for getting killed by him. If you're good enough to call him a "n00b", why don't you just...check around instead of running past him like an idiot and getting killed, it's not that hard

The gist of it: A group of people with patience and strategy hated on by idiots and impatient 13 year olds with autism and/or ADD.
"It's 1 vs 10, I think i'll camp so I can pick a few of them off first."

Camper's dead teammate: "OMG HE'S CAMPING NOOB"

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.
"Hey, check out that camper!"
"Yeah, what a Noob."

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."
