The scumbags of the fps genre in gaming. Although camping is an legitimate strategy for some modes of the game there are some pricks out there that camp 24/7 regardless of the game mode. Whether it'd be Team Deathmatch or Capture The Flag these retards will just sit there all day hiding and camping a little room with claymores rifles and everything else they can think of. It's douchebags like these fucks that give camping a bad vibe for everyone else when the game mode does call for strategic camping. Especially frustrating for Modern Warfare 2 where the fuckers plant claymores in every entrance for a room during Team Deathmatch.
That guy is such a camper, dickhead camps in Domination CTF and Team Deathmatch.

Omg that noob didn't move for the whole game or even tried to capture the flag what a fucking camper.

Dude that dickhead camper just hid in the room during the whole Team Deatchmatch.

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.

While camping is, in fact, a legit strategy, it does make for boring game play. If a person wishes to devote their life to waiting and not moving (apparently some people get off on winning and not actually playing the game to it's fullest extent) then that's their business. They are just creating an unfriendly game where winning at any cost is the sole purpose. Campers will often resort to hacks as well if their camping fails to achieve them victory.

The bane of the camper is having his weapon of choice removed from his arsonal usually resulting in his defeat (should he not quit the game first).

Campers also find themselves tiring of a game sooner than others because they experience the same game play their entire time camping. This results in the purchasing of a new game where a new camping location will, without a doubt, draw the attention of the camper, where he will then repeat the process above.
Player A - "Well I was having fun until that camper joined."
Host - "Yeah, I'll just remove sniper rifles."
(Camper Leaves)
Host - "There we go, back to a good game."

Usually in Multi-player games, a player who will "camp" by a spawn point, in order to kill a player almost instantly after he/she has respawned. This, is a perfectly legal tactic, however it is very much unfair. these problems are somtimes prevented by game features such as invicablity fo (X) amount of time after the player has spawned. Campers are usually unexperienced players or noobs, who can not win the game, so they use this method insted of obtaining victory through skill.
*player A moves to enemy spawn point*

*Player B is killed, respawns, then is quickly killed by player A, who is "camping by the spawn point*

this continues as insults are exchanged, mostly about the camper being a noob.

A term used when a player (in a multi-player game) kills a person when the killer is stationary, in a hidden area for many minutes to wait for a target to get in range for a kill.

Many "pros" use this technique to guard key objectives of the game and hide in areas so obvious they are not and get several kills to loosen the load on the people guarding the "ctf flags" and are wrongfully accused as a person to get easy kills.

Many "noobs" use this technique to get easy kills in areas with virtually no player transit and tends to slow down the game just because of the choice of location.

Many "noobs" accuse "pros" as campers because they cannot understand the fact they just got killed in such a simple way and try to find a reason to justify the "uncommon" act of a person killing them.
Noob1: "d0oo0d 570op t3h h4x0rz1n c4mp1n oh 1 c411 t3h 1337 4dm1n5 omn y0 azz"

Pro1: "I'm not a hacking camper, I'm a perfectly legitimate player that just stopped you from capturing the flag."

Noob2:"h4yz do0od 1 54w5 u h4x c4mp1n s0 uzz b3tt4 g0o 4w4y"

Pro1:"You noobs prevent this very game from ever avoiding the classification of "Worst Player Community" award."

A person in a first person shooter who claims to "play defensively". By this they mean sit and wait in one spot, usually crouched behind some sort of obstacle only revealing their head.

The other people who actually fight for their kills run in there, just to get killed by a camper.

Some people call this type of play "strategic" and "smart" however this type of play is used by people who are afraid to get killed in a videogame.

Campers are basically people who sit and wait for an opponent to come into their site of vision to spray hordes of bullets killing them in their path. Or in other words ruining the game for everyone else.

Note: Some of these campers tend to use noob tubes, and heart beat sensors.
"BOOM HEADSHOT!!! IM SO GOOD AT THIS GAME!!! Im so good Im getting an erection!" says the camper.

"Wow dude just wow, fucking camper kills me when I was about to get nuke. I hope someone poisons your marshmallows, or a wild bear attacks your camp site you FAG! CAMPER!!!" says the irritated person who was just killed by the camper.

A person playing a FPS that sits in one place for extended periods of time, usually in a corner or easily defensible postion using the statistically best weapon like the FAMAS in Black ops. In certain objective gametypes such as domination it is a a valid way to win but in gametypes like Team Deathmatch that are non-objective it is inexcusable and shows a complete lack of skill.
Guy1 "There is a 13 year old kid being a camping tryhard with a famas in the corner by the tower."

Guy2 "Fucking camper, I bet he has claymores all over the place too."
