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".

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.

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.

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.

It's not just the campers. It's also the ***** who run around. You can't stop because those run 'n gunners will **** you and you can't run around because the campers will rip you a new one from the other side of the map. 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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".

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.

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]

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.

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.

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.
