The m203 in the hands of a n00b is just irritating, instead of getting into a firefight they duck behind a box and shoot their grenades off. The 203 comes into its own at the start of some levels and for long distance kills. My clan has some 203 shots we fire from our spawn at the start that block off and kill unsuspecting players. It does get very very annoying when a entire team uses nothing but the M4 though.

sheesh, people get so bent about "camping"

I mean, yes, some forms of camping are lame, like the aforementioned spawn point camping, but some people call any kind of sniping or long distance attacking "camping" and those are the people that are just bitching cause they don't pay attention, always get killed, and don't adapt

I try to play a diverse game, but IMO running around like a dip**** with absolutely no plan is not a tactic, nor is it much fun. These are the same kinds of people that usually challenge your manhood just because you won't step out and hold still so they can shoot you

I think we all know the difference between a tactical attack and flat out camping

I'm all for the tactical 'camp-attack' in-the-field as it were, but never sitting and waiting for groups to come up to my base. Now, on the other hand if I'm running towards a goal or health or back to base (even with the flag) and I'm being annoyed by some noobs bad attempts to take me down with is m4/glovegun/ghettoblastuh etc by trying to shoot me in the back I might just drop a flashbang and run around the nearest corrner and wait there...but never sitting on a roof taking out ppl who are busy with the real battle down "there".

Camping is lame. Period.

I got pissed when someone wanted to ban me for camping once. The thing was, I was protecting the freaking flag from the enemy. I can't remember which game it was, but I was in my teams base keeping things secured as everyone else ran around. Some people jsut don't know the difference between guarding and camping.

The only thing I hate about campers is when they don't realize they're the only one left on the map and don't know it. So everyone is spectating the guy as we try and yell at him to get moving.

Dor the most part, I like to get out there and make a run for it, to get into some action. If it's a more serious game, I'd move slowly, and try to keep out of the open from snipers.

Though, sometimes I think snipers don't fit into the gameplay. Especially if they are in a far spot and you keep getting killed by the guy over and over, and then have to change your weapons just to go get the guy for him just to come back to the same spot. But overall, it's part of the gameplay. The only time I'd really get annoid are in games that don't let you know were the shot came from. Some games, I think BF1942, after you die the camera swings up to where the shot came, that way it won't be so easy for the sniper to stay there the rest of the game, and so you can get some revenge or avoid visibility from him.


If you get sniped in CS, is there any indication where the shot came from so you can avoid being hit the next time? Maybe with the new physics you'll fall in the directing the bullet forces you so you get some idea.

If someone complains about me doing a certain tactic I just do it more.

I think the problem is that some people prefer to run and gun, and the people who are either nervous about combat or just lazy and sit in a particular spot aren't playing to their tastes. Tough luck. They don't owe you anything. Their preferences are just as valid as yours. The aforementioned option remains: Play another server.
