Ok be honest, how often do you really get camped or tunneled ?



  • Creepa99Creepa99 Member Posts: 79

    Tbh it only happens in low ranks where the killers and survivors are brain dead idiots. I already was good at the game before I started playing console bc I played on mobile and the starting ranks were arguably harder to get through than higher ranks due to face camping.

    Very rarely, and if I do get tunneled it is normally closer to the end of the game when the killer is losing and out of options. Tbh it isn't nearly as big of an issue as people on the forums make it out to be. Also I never use crutch perks as a survivor, my personal favorite builds are vault build and a build around autodidact.

    Tunneled: not very much

    Tuneled - Pretty often...

    Camped - not often...

  • riotangelriotangel Member Posts: 176

    Camping on the spot is pretty extreme and rarely happens. But rather inexplicable when it happens with a killer equipping BBQ&C + MYC.

    However, killers do pretty often hang around nearby to tunnel same victim for quick boot-out of the match. I don't keep exact statistics, but probably around 20%.

    Some are so hardcore they'd abandon a chase and come back all the way from the opposite side of the map just to tunnel the unhooked.

    Camped once per 30-50 perhaps it's super rare in high ranks on Xbox. Tunneling once per 10 games, not a lot but still not fun. When the MMR system was introduced I as a rank 1 killer suddenly med rank 13-20 killers then there were a lot of camping. I think that is just a low rank thing.

    Camped like 4 out of 10 matches. But patroul camped, not facecamped. Facecamp happens very rarely to me.

    Tunneled however happens fairly often. Especially with Mori noobs. They run after you for minutes to get their kill leaving other survivors left and right, which absolutely sucks. Mori is the biggest bullshit atm.

    Personally I see proxy camping more often than straight up face camping. Proxy camping isn't too difficult to work around with a competent team. I usually play solo Q so that's 50/50. I agree with some comments above, i usually only see hard camping only after the survivor acts toxic towards the killer. Or recently it's been b/c of the rift challenges. I think the challenge to kill the obsession really caused an uptick in camping/tunneling. But we should be past that now since it's been a couple weeks when that challenge dropped.

    So rarely I can't even remember the last time it happened

  • just_temejust_teme Member Posts: 190

    It depens if you count when killers secure a sacrifice after last gen has been popped.

    If it does count: pretty often.

    If it doesent: barely ever.

  • MarigoriaMarigoria Member Posts: 3,534

    Survivor main here. I have over 3k hours and play solo 95%+ of the time. (I main Quentin if that matters).

    From my experience, it really depends on the killer. Huntress, Pyramid Head, Wraith and Spirit tend to be the ones who camp and tunnel the most.

    I'd say 1/4 games tunnel or camp. Facecamping very rarely.

  • MoisetteMoisette Member Posts: 123

    It doesn't happen all the time, but it happens sometimes.

    I mostly play Survivor, but I play Killer sometimes to do daily rituals and stuff and sometimes I just happen to find the same person numerous times. It's just bad luck, I guess. When I find the same person numerous times, I usually either knock them down and leave them to be healed or just ignore them. Not long ago, I hooked this Claudette and someone rescued her, and I was going after the rescuer, but Claudette was going the same way, so I'm sure she thought I was after her again but I wasn't. I also tunneled someone the other day because I had one more daily ritual and I was tired of playing Killer so I just went after one person. When I knocked them down, I did let them escape. I don't like tunneling but I was so tired of playing as Killer xD

  • Ghouled_MojoGhouled_Mojo Member Posts: 1,573

    Once every three or four games as solo survivor.

    I was chased by a huntress last night and while being chased two gens popped. As soon as i was unhooked she was after me again. Two more gens popped by the time she tunneled me out of the game. No one else was hooked when I was sacrificed. I much prefer to be killer and killers like that are why the rest of us get screwed over in the role.

  • MugomboMugombo Member Posts: 509

    I'd say tunneling happens in about 1/2 of games, and full camping in about 1/5 of games, and this is either red or purple ranks.

  • Allhel1Allhel1 Member Posts: 56

    I think it depends on what you play on cause I play primarily on PlayStation but also play on pc and on pc I hardly ever get camped but on console it’s almost every game. I don’t teabag or spam flash light. I’ve noticed in the 4 years I’ve played this game console is generally more toxic than pc especially with hate messages and camping.

  • MPGamer18MPGamer18 Member Posts: 112

    It depends on the player and platform. I have no problem being face-camped or tunneled if I run the killer most of the match. That comes with the territory.

    However, late night games against Playstation killers are the worst. They will not only camp and tunnel, they will bring in a mori too. I play across PC, PS and Xbox and PS is by far the worst platform for lower rank (red and purple) killers. It's why I started playing SWF on PS. It's just no fun playing against lowered skilled players who won't put in the time to learn how to play.

    Decisive Strike needs to be changed back to what it was.

    8-9/10 games. Killer is irrelevant.

  • LeovanniLeovanni Member Posts: 49

    50% of games at least me or one friend gets tunneled/ camped (red to purple ranks). If we get a green rank killer, its more like 90% of the time (noed included). Two days ago I almost lost a rank because I was tunneled 4 games in a row. This is counting face / proxy camping and obvious tunneling / magically they chose the same person to chase and hook 3 times before even hitting another survivor.

    I play average 10 games a day.

    (Anyone willing to count up the stats for this thread?)

  • kcwolf1975kcwolf1975 Member Posts: 631

    I took a long break and started back up as a rank 20 survivor. I couldn't believe how often I was camped and/or tunneled. It's no wonder new players don't stick with this game. You need to make it to around rank 10 where you don't see it as often.

    I know it's because the noob killers don't know what to do, but it is a major turnoff for the noob survivors.

  • Kumnut768Kumnut768 Member Posts: 789

    i get tunneled most of the time when i do play survivor which is one of the big reasons i stick exclusively to killer

  • korean_zombiekorean_zombie Member Posts: 442

    I get proxy camped maybe 1/8 games. usually get tunneled off hook when that happens. I cant recall being hard camped that wasn’t after the gates were powered. When the gates are powered I think a lot of players expect the killer to leave them when the smart play is to stay nearby.

  • Luna_PLuna_P Member Posts: 8

    I play for a few hours most days of the week and at least 2-3 times a week I will get camped. I find that really frustrating. One particularly frustrating game which happened about a week ago I was faced camped to an extreme and felt this player was just super toxic. The other survivors were great and tried to unhook me, the killer (wraith) would make him/herself invisible in front of me, wait for a survivor, appear and then hit them, didn't chase them, and just waited until I was sacrificed. I find it annoying because I enjoy playing the game in its entirety and when I get camped this diminishes the fun for me. I also feel that people who are choosing this course of game play aren't playing the game at all.

    Tunneling, I rarely get tunneled and when it happens I don't mind it. I just need to learn how to be more crafty with my escapes.

  • DetailedDetrimentDetailedDetriment Member Posts: 2,632

    At least 3 times a day.

  • DaFireSquirtleDaFireSquirtle Member Posts: 188

    Yh I have the same sort of experience. I rarely get camped or funneled unless someone like unsafe unhooks me which honestly is less on the killer and more the survivor for being extremely stupid. However when I play killer which I'd say is less then survivor I get a toxic survivor at least everywhere other match if not a full toxic swf. That and hate messages to like go ######### or racist, homophobic etc. This makes me wonder if the survivors on here who say like 8 out 10 games they get face camped or tunneled are either very over dramatic and don't know what counts as these 2 things. Or they play really toxic like. Spamming flashlights. Tbagging etc. Which in that case you deserve being tunneled or camped. If you're gonna be a toxic survivor don't expect killers to be really nice to you.

    On the topic of messages I can say without a doubt I've only ever received one offensive message from a killer. Maybe even non my memories slightly fuzzy on it but I believe it was to do with him thinking we were in a swf which I was not and he got bad matchmaking. The rest are ggs and discussion. Whereas survivors I can play as fair or "fun" for the survivor and still get entire swf bombarding me with toxic messages.

    Maybe this is because we go against 4 survivors and not 1 so therefore we are bound to meet more toxic survivors just due to the numbers. But I don't really believe that is the main reason.

    I have honestly come to believe that there is just a lot more toxic survivors which considering more people play survivor like me makes sense. But I've almost given up with this game.

    Sorry if it feels like I'm ranting. I want to play this game but it's repetitive at times.

  • DaFireSquirtleDaFireSquirtle Member Posts: 188

    But you do realise the same arguement can be made right back by killers? No one side is to blame. And killers don't camp every round or as you say proxy camp. If That's like every round there's no way survivors wouldn't be raging about it every chance they get. But they don't only some people say silly things like oh I get them every round. You don't. No one is that unlucky. Proxy camping yes can be annoying and yea can be a legitimate strategy for certain killers but it's also very easy to counter.

  • JPLongstreetJPLongstreet Member Posts: 2,519

    Some camping but more tunneling lately. More Keys and Mori's than usual too, like players are using them up before a potential double nurf.

    Like others have said Entity help ya if there's no Obsession...

  • TheeclumsyNinjaTheeclumsyNinja Member Posts: 283

    It depends on the rank of the killer, the lower the rank the more you’ll see that kind of gameplay

  • NickromancyNickromancy Member Posts: 3

    As someone who plays solo mostly and mostly Killer. When I do play Survivor with or without friends we run into someone tunneling once every 3 or 4 games and a hard camper once every 6 or 7.

    Tunneling in this case is not just including tunneling off hook, but also literal tunnel vision on a single survivor no matter how well or how long it takes to down them.

    Hard camping is not including coming back to the hook every now and then but hard face camping.

  • ChickenChicken Member Posts: 123

    Every time i'm camped its because i either deserved it (acted "cuntish") or because the killer has nothing do lose. same thing for tunneling, if i'm using OoO or playing blendette the killer has an extra reason to get me out of the game early. but thats pretty rare.
