A strategy in First person shooters where the player sits idly by hoping and unsuspecting enemy will maybe walk in front of them. As red vs Blue said it, camping is not a legitimate strategy. Many campers would defend camping as the most tactically sound and intelligent strategy, when in reality they just dont have the reflexes or hand eye coordination to play the game normally. Also known as a strategy for 5 year olds and pussies who are afraid to die in a video game so they sit in the corner
1:damn that guy camping in the corner just killed me
2: he killed me too hes been sitting there all game what a camping fag he probably uses the heartbeat sensor and commando too
1: my 50 year old mother could get that score camping like him and shes never played before

Camping is a way of playing on a online fps game. There are 2 types.

Pro- A pro usually does not find it necessary to camp but if they do, they camp, shoot, then move on.

N00b-A noob always camps (well most of them do). In fact, the majority of campers are noobs. They will camp, then shoot, then instead of moving, stay in the same place. Since they stay in the same place, they get killed and than complain how you hack.
Pro- Damn low on hp. *camps* *takes shot* *move on* *camps somewhere else* *noob comes looking for his camping spot* *takes shots* *moves on* *BOOOM* *gets killed by a nube tuber*

Noob- Oh I have 100 hp, instead of helping the team ill just camp cuz ima nub. *camps* *takes shot* *camps in same spot more* *gets knifed in the back* WTH HACKER HOW DID U NO I WAS THER H@CK3R.

The act of sitting in the same spot in first person shooters and taking advantage of other players not checking every corner. It is generally how pussies play first person shooters.

a synonym for the word "intense". When the syllables of the adjective intense are isolated and said slowly the two words "IN" and "TENTS" can be drawn from the word. The relation here to the word camping is that when camping is conducted by people whether it be in a forest, jungle, arctic landscape, etc people usually choose a tent or tent like domicile for shelter.
Jane: Wow, what a nail biter finish to that basketball game!
John: yes, the fourth quarter was pretty camping.

in bars-

to eat up space by sitting at the bar or tables and either not drink anything, or nurse the same drink for hours, thus not providing tips for the bartenders or servers
I did not make any money last night. I just had a bunch of losers camping at the bar.

How fathers and sons bonded before Pong.
You're going on a camping trip.
Why mummy?
Because me and your father want some alone time.
