So wassit ganna be?

Camping: Boo, hiss...cowardly,underhand, weaklings preying on unsuspecting inocents? http://www.gameon.co.uk/_vti_mb/frown.gif


Sniping: Brave warriors, selflessly fighting a lonely battle against Tyranny? http://www.gameon.co.uk/_vti_mb/smile.gif

Here's my view (like you care).

A camper is someone who sits in a bottleneck for ages, knowing that an enemy will probably use that route and present the "camper" with an easy kill. A camper will keep the ghosts waiting for ever just so they can notch up 1 single frag.

A sniper is somebody who uses a long range weapon to tactical advantage either giving covering fire to friendly troops or using a vantage point to offer a productive killzone, the sniper will regularly move position thus not giving his position away to the enemy (this is also usualy true of real snipers depending on the tactical scenario).

Basicly what I'm saying is that aslong as you regulary move around....say every 20-30 seconds then that is sniping. If you hide yourself away in a dark corner at the start of the game and dont move an inch then your gonna **** people off. Also if there is only you and one enemy left on the map then for gods sake get out and look for each other, Theres nothing worse for a ghost than watching two camping twats waiting for each other to blunder into each others sights.

Go on flame me....you know you want to.

Do I ever dream of electric sheep?

The best way to play is to assault, then camp for 5 secs to reassess whats goin on, in which ud probly get a kill, then assault again!

Assault Assault Assault People! Bring ur AWPs with u! http://www.gameon.co.uk/_vti_mb/biggrin.gif

Campin to me only means it takes me longer to kill you, why prolong the inevitable http://www.gameon.co.uk/_vti_mb/tongue.gif
