that fire is dangerously close to your tent though

Don't worry, it's friendly fire - and that's turned off.

staying on spot picking off enemies with a sniper rifle= sniping
hiding, staying in a corner or spot with an machine gun or something else= camping

There is no such thing as a 'sniper rifle' only precision rifles, a 'sniper rifle' is any rifle carried by a trained sniper. Also snipers dont fire multiple shots from the same spot, they shoot and move.
#58 to #2 - anon (05/06/2013) [-]
IRL, depending on the situation a well trained sniper would never take more than two shots from a position in ideal circumstances. An instance where the sniper would not change position is if they were trying to keep enemy infantry from making troop movements in a specific area. Like watching an alleyway to keep the enemy from crossing. If they are out looking for targets and not defending a position they would take only two shots at most. The first shot would alert the enemy to their presence and the second could give away their position(assuming the enemy has enough sense to try to figure out where the shots came from. It could be a deadly mistake for a sniper to assume otherwise.)

IRL, the snipers wouldn't be so close to the combat. Further back, or with more cover, they could move much more freely. In games like CoD, there are not enough good sniping positions on the map to go to a different spot every time. Battlefield has more room to do it, which makes it better, but these are fast paced battles where you're not worried about surviving as much as you are about getting kills, to where it would be impractical to move your position every time.

Also you're not going against professionally trained soldiers here.

IRL, the weapon used has NOTHING to do with what it's called.

You can be a sniper with a revolver. To snipe means to be a hidden gunman.

The origin of the word actually has a really interesting story to it involving a bird called the "Snipe".
#27 to #14 - anon (05/06/2013) [-]
Everything you just said is false.
User avatar #135 to #27 - tittystargalactica ONLINE (05/06/2013) [-]
Seriously, man.

Years and years ago in England, hunters used to all dream of shooting a very rare bird called the "Snipe".

The bird wouldn't come out near people so the hunters used to have to lay in wait in camouflage sometimes for days on end in the hopes that one would show up. They would then take one well aimed shot and either hit the bird or miss it and have to repeat the process.

If you got the bird, you would be known as a "sniper".

That's basically what they do in the military today.
#128 to #27 - anon (05/06/2013) [-]
Etymology

Middle English "type of bird", from Old Norse -snipa, in myrisnipa (“moor snipe”)

The verb originated in the 1770s among soldiers in British India where a hunter skilled enough to kill the elusive snipe was dubbed a "sniper".[1] The term sniper was first attested in 1824 in the sense of the word "sharpshooter".[1]

It's a legitimate strategy.

When sniping, It is legitimate. When with an SMG or Assault Rifle or a ******* Shotgun on CoD. Its ******** .

Valid tactic, just annoying when you die from someone doing it repeatedly.

It's not camping, it's a strategical lack of movement.
User avatar #23 - arrisarrad (05/06/2013) [-]
It's really the only legitimate strategy. What kind of soldier runs around shooting hits assault rifle and firing off suppressed shotgun rounds?
#29 to #23 - sloot (05/06/2013) [-]
implying video games resemble real life warfare at all, thus using real life strategy is invalid...
User avatar #36 to #29 - arrisarrad (05/06/2013) [-]
That's a completely inaccurate statement stemming from an opinion developed by erroneous observation. Video games that use themes taken from modern warfare are made more and more to mimic reality, and tactical thinking helps a lot. I only got good at FPS games because of my tactical mindset.
#61 to #36 - mistahlegend (05/06/2013) [-]
I play video games to escape reality. Not to simulate it. If I want to experience real war: boredom, death, constant fear, and the psychological effects, I'll sign up for it.
User avatar #62 to #61 - arrisarrad (05/06/2013) [-]
Why not experience the good parts that allow you to exercise tactical thinking and situational awareness without suffering through that?
#63 to #62 - mistahlegend (05/06/2013) [-]
If you rush around, that's where your tactical thinking and situational awareness comes in. Thinking about where they are spawning in comparison to you, the lines-of-sight advantageous to you given your current position, the best way to flank around, what weapons you hear the enemy using. If you wear a headset, listening to foot steps. It's all there.
User avatar #76 to #63 - arrisarrad (05/06/2013) [-]
Are you kidding? That's just a muted version of real tactics. Moving swiftly yet stealthily, planning ambushes and maneuvering, setting up to catch your opponent unawares, to out think them. That's real tactics and strategy, plus you throw in those unanticipated bits of random violence and quick, decisive, responsive action, and you get the whole package. Limiting yourself to that adrenalin jumped experience without taking advantage of the full range of combat experiences is just, well, boring and wasteful. Not only that, but it helps promote an inaccurate impression of combat. I honestly prefer careful planning followed by quick, efficient action. Tends to get the best results and you feel way more accomplished. Running around shooting at things gets boring after a while, but the tense, time intensive process of sniping or setting up an ambush or sneak attack always proves exciting because you have to work for it and the feeling of professionalism and pride you get from it is so much more delectable.

Camping: otherwise what's known as "what intelligent people would do if actually in that situation".

Or you could just run around with your gun drawn like a ******** , god forbid you even pretend that in game deaths mean anything.

<< to people who bitch about "camping".
#30 to #8 - sloot (05/06/2013) [-]
or win by being more skilled than another team and not having to resort to camping...unless you are talking about COD then forget what I said. Skill doesn't exist in that game.
#50 to #30 - ichbinlecher (05/06/2013) [-]
Implying that using a strategy that works isn't a skill.
#144 to #50 - sloot (05/06/2013) [-]
Im just saying... I play more hardcore games where being a camper does absolutely nothing for you. In gears for example it comes down to out dodging your opponent and being perfect at landing all of your shots. 3 guys could flank you from different directions and if you have the skill your could clutch all three of them because you are better... It is the kind of game where someone bad at the game could play you to 20 and might only kill you once... It isn't about who sees who first and lands shots anywhere.
#32 to #8 - anon (05/06/2013) [-]
I bet you have a lot of fun driving around obeying traffic laws in GTA. Games aren't supposed to be played like real life
#49 to #32 - ichbinlecher (05/06/2013) [-]
GTA isn't. But, and correct me if I am wrong, the point of a competitive game is to win. GTA is a single player game primarily, the point is to go through the story line.

In real life its called "pulling security"

The only way of killing them is with teamwork and unless you've got good friends in the match the likeliness of that happening are zero. MFW this happens

If people find it &quot;fun&quot; to sit in a corner and just shoot anybody they see, that's fine for them.  If somebody is running around, quick scoping and having &quot;fun&quot;, that's fine for them. I'll just be running around with a Assault Shield trying to have &quot;fun&quot; myself.

This is the part people forget. Fun means something different to different people. And games are supposed to grant fun. Good job being smart.
User avatar #20 to #8 - masdercheef (05/06/2013) [-]
I think it's pretty funny when people bitch at snipers for camping. Oh, yeah, like a SNIPER, best equipped to sit off away from combat, is going to run up in close quarters to try and kill the enemy.
User avatar #22 to #20 - yunonomynameeh (05/06/2013) [-]
I think it's funny the way everyone runs around period, it wasn't like that when it first come out on PS3 -everyone played like they were afraid of death, like they were actually in a warzone. By the next one everyone was playing it like it was Halo, just running around, jumping and shooting -paying attention to nothing but kill counts and points.


User avatar #24 to #22 - masdercheef (05/06/2013) [-]
I actually find that people still have some sense in games like Battlefield. In Halo, at least, it makes sense to go running around for kills because you can. However, in Battlefield, people generally tend to use cover, move as a squad (and not in the open) or not even move, just fortify one location. And then there are tank squads that just absolutely wreck whatever they point at. Because they're doing it right.
User avatar #37 to #24 - yunonomynameeh (05/06/2013) [-]
Yeah, Halo's a completely different game, it's made for that kind of gameplay. I'll have to try battlefield some time -if it's anything like COD was in the beginning it'd be awesome.
User avatar #87 to #37 - deathstare (05/06/2013) [-]
Only reason I was frustrated with BF2 was the large maps. It took me a great while to get somewhere, and I would die right after, and traverse the land again. If you get a good position, it's really fun.
User avatar #116 to #20 - srapture (05/06/2013) [-]
Of course. Realistically, anyone with the fairly heavy, long, and not easily mobile ARES M200 Cheytac Intervention would be running right into the line of fire to 'quickscope' the enemies.

Most first person shooting gamer logic: If you get killed by some one strategically beating you by protecting himself with cover and without being seen first - call him a "camping faggot" because it might just lure him into obeying an imaginary sense of gaming honour to get himself killed.

User avatar #65 - demandsgayversion (05/06/2013) [-]
That's literally what a sniper is supposed to do. They hide and wait for good shots. It's the most effective way to do that. Since when is doing the most effective thing a bad thing?
#67 to #65 - disturbedmaster (05/06/2013) [-]
when its like 6 - 32 people depending on game ofc with op weapons strapping you in a corner or camping in places where you can see them till its wayyyy to late. the only campers i approve of is snipers all others can **** their collective no skill asses
User avatar #68 to #67 - demandsgayversion (05/06/2013) [-]
I wouldn't call them unskilled, they're just smart. If you were 'skilled' you would find a way to make them not a problem. Outsmart your enemy. Their weapons are overpowered you think? Then use the same weapons. They're hiding? Memorize the hiding places and preemptively attack. THAT would be skill.
#70 to #68 - disturbedmaster (05/06/2013) [-]
trust my sniffing them out if nooo problem in cod and even less in bf3 seeing as i could just blow the wall down. and i dont take hour long empty lobby walk throughs of every map for nothing and its skill when 1 maybe 2 do it but if its all of them doing it jsut kill whoring in a objective based game mode then thats retarded as **** and yes i have seen some op weapons most of the time its because of glitches a subtle mod or a straight up hack ie pistols getting sniper range shots, shotguns getting ar range shots, or some one getting a 9 man kill feed with only 6 bullets. most of my classes are set to be balanced no matter the game type and i get through it well but if im doing domination and my team is camping and aint doing **** to defend or cap flags or at least provide protection ofc im going to get pissed at campers. and tbh cod sniping died after mw2/blops1, now its all about quick scoping and no scoping heck mw3 n blops 2 maps are horrible for sniping and they all seem to have been made for shorter gun engagments. sure i enjoy cod becuase its fun and fast pased and i enjoy games like mag moh bf3 ect becuase their more realistic to a certian extent ie bullet drop, spin drift. didnt really mean to rant bur hey it is what it is

That's a choke point.
User avatar #88 to #78 - capslockrage (05/06/2013) [-]
Sitting in a corner next to a doorway, is NOT a choke point.
A choke point would be standing behind a barrier of a commonly trafficked hallway or area, not watching one doorway that will take sometimes over a minute to kill even one person.
User avatar #90 to #88 - demandsgayversion (05/06/2013) [-]
Well if it's that inefficient, then I don't see why it's a problem.
User avatar #92 to #90 - capslockrage (05/06/2013) [-]
But to the people doing it, they don't care if it's inefficient.
But when you get killed by them, it's frustrating.

The only camping I think there really is, is spawn camping. That you have slim to no chance of getting out of, but anything else there is a way. Grenades, smoke, rockets, C-4, alternate routes, teamwork. There's always a way to smoke someone out.
#48 to #17 - ichbinlecher (05/06/2013) [-]
Spawn camping, while it does get points, is probably the one gripe I have against campers. See, the reason I don't hate campers is because it resembles reality. Spawn points don't. Therefore that is not a tactic that I think is appropriate (and is really fricking easy to fix from a developer standpoint - spawned players are unaffected by weapons for 5 seconds or something).

This was the first idea I had, but I figured that the advantage would not truly exist as people would simply stay outside the range of the star power's time limit. The real issue, I think, is knowing how much time to give. 5 seconds is way to long, but 3 seems a tad short.

Another thing I worded carefully is that the person should be truly invincible as I imagine there would be players who used the physics engine and explosives to their advantage if they were literally unkillable. But making them unaffected by weapons makes this not work.

I will cede to a professional's opinion though.

User avatar #51 to #48 - flemsdfer (05/06/2013) [-]
I usually play battlefield and there are ways around it. They did what you said with weapon fire, but that doesn't stop them from flying a vehicle to the enemy base, jumping out, and getting in their aircraft before the out of bounds limiter goes off. Then they'll have the enemies vehicles while theirs will respawn at their own base later, giving them everything.
