Lately camping has proven to be more effecient then sweating all match

I usually see a lot of camping disucssions complaining, but now I realize why it happens soo often

It works

Why should I go after every single survivor and scare them away from gens?

If I camp a survivor at least 1 or the full team will go for the unhook, and I can turn 1 hook into 3 hooks

Sure you might lose all gens if it's a swf but either way they will probably depip and not get much points since they genrushed me(which to be honest they would do even if I wasn't camping)

Speaking of points, I am at a point where points don't matter to me, and I am more worried about having fun, and camping is relaxing, can give you an easy win , and I don't need to be annoyed by abusive tactics by survivors

    Just camp with NOED if killer is too challenging. It's actually a mathematically guaranteed 2k if your first chase is short enough.

  • 53nation53nation Member Posts: 677

    Ya i agree. Just go all in. Noed, insidious, blood warden, and ehhh something? Idk

  • WaffleyumboyWaffleyumboy Member Posts: 7,318

    A chase perk maybe? Or CI for a bigger window for your first hook.

    i love this because the counter to camping is gen rush yet noed punishes you for gen rushing...So you get punished by camping and when the killer ends up killing 2 survivors by camping then you get punished by noed for genrushing...The irony lol.

  • BlindMoleBlindMole Member Posts: 649

    Wow wow wow, leave bloodwarden out of this. Its the best perk in the game and i think (correct me if i'm wrong) the only one to make both sides laugh when it's triggered

    Nice to see you man 🤗

    I do love me some mathematics

  • ShocktoberShocktober Member Posts: 678

    Yup, completely glosses over camping stealth killers. Or camping stealth killers with a mori, who straight up ignore BT / DS and smack you off the hook into a mori. Camping wraith / ghostface can do that super easily, especially wraith. Been insta'moring people off the hook for years now with wraith and im surprised BT is still not proximity based.

    You should really just get BT no matter what when you get off the hook, it only lasts 15 seconds anyways and would fix it not working against facecamp freddies.

    Camping pig with a mori is pretty bad too since even if you somehow make it to a locker for DS your head trap timer will still be running and you are dead anyways. Then she can just crouch behind you until you are dead at that point and not even use the mori if it's ivory.

    I guess I better start bringing Kindered again xD

  • DzeikorDzeikor Member Posts: 704

    of course camping works especially againts cocky survivors,you genrush me?I facecamp you

  • OtakuBurritoOtakuBurrito Member Posts: 512

    That's why survivors just leaving people to die on hooks and playing full 4 man SWF. No time wasted except the camping killers. Killers like that usually only get that one kill if that. I've started bringing endurance medkits just for this reason.

    And it's hilarious because they're red rank 1-3 killers barely getting 15/20K and then ######### after game about SWF ruining their fun after we burn 4 BPS and they decide to do that nonsense. I get it, play how you want. But if you play like a dick when people put out a nice gesture then expect to have a dick slapped across your forehead in return.

    100% correct. I never understand survivors begging BHVR to do something to killers that camp. Instead you should be begging your fellow survivors to quit playing like morons. Killers that camp are doing it because it is an effective strategy. However, the ONLY reason it's an effective strategy is because of survivors. If you are a survivor that runs up to pull people off the hook even when the killer is standing right there you are to blame for camping being so common. Even as a survivor main I realize how ridiculous it is for survivors to ask BHVR for a remedy to a problem they bring on themselves.

  • DehitayDehitay Member Posts: 1,723

    The one thing I would like implemented is for BHVR to make it more obvious when a hooked survivor is being camped. And I mean actually camped, not just some entitled survivor crying because the killer didn't instantaneously disappear from the map after hooking. I really think it should be up to the survivors to punish camping since they can easily do it, but they should get a tool to know if the killer is camping. Something like making the killer's aura visible when they're in a certain proximity to the hooked survivor after giving them a short time to leave the area first so the survivors don't get to see what direction they left in.

    I dont camp, however i get accused of it all the time because i do a quick check around the hook and i come back after checking 2 gens. I almost always find someone hiding around there. Alternatively i hook someone and two people are standing right by me so they can unhook instantly. Smart killers will check as bait and frankly if they are face camping and they get more than 1 kill then the survivors screwed up.

  • GhosteGhoste Member Posts: 1,583

    I understand camping sometimes, but for us solo players, it is extremely boring.

    Nothing like waiting 10 minutes in queue to get camped/tunneled and depip with 5k points. It really ruins the game.

  • SaitamfedSaitamfed Member Posts: 1,503

    Oh please. Don't talk like those who camp do it because it's affordable, in a BP gain I mean. Even if you play non-altruistic and 3 escape there will be one who will be camped. Why? Because some people feel miserable and need to make another people miserable as well. It's not a strategy for them, they're ruining the game on purpose just because they're salty or want to have fun at the misery of another one. Generally those who camp are into the "you survivors vs us killer" kind of thread as well.

    I play killer a lot and there were a match as nurse just yesterday, where I hooked one person that didn't use their DS (I had the feeling she had it), EGC already started. I could have camped her, and it might have been better to avoid an extremely safe hook but I didn't. Why? Because camping is no fun, either for survivor and killer.

    There are way too many factors for it to be that simple. Camping + NOED and/or a stealth killer means unless the killer ######### up they are almost guaranteed at least a 2k. Likely more if the RNG favors them with exit gate or gen placements.

    Plus solo survivors do not have telepathy so they won't know if the killer is camping unless they go for the save or use certain perks which can be countered by stealth killers or Insidious. That can waste a huge amount of time.

    For the best outcome against a camper you are entirely reliant on a. the camped survivor not to attempt to escape or just let themselves die on hook ASAP once they realise they are being camped and will get ######### for BP and emblems for the match, and b. the other two survivors to play correctly even though you have no way to communicate with them.

    Placing the blame entirely on survivors doesn't make any sense. Especially when you guys make killers and perks that ENCOURAGE camping, like Leatherface and Insidious.

    It's not even just that camping can be very effective, it's also that it's incredibly easy to do and many people do it for no reason other than ruin somebody else's experience.

    Maybe it works with how you're getting kills, (not every game though), but whats guaranteed is that you wont get a lot of bloodpoints.

    My issue with this logic is that I have no control over my other teammates' actions as a solo player. This can be frustrating as I am completely powerless to do anything about it if they are unaware how to counter a camping strategy as it takes at least two of the four (if not three in some cases) to properly counter a camping strategy.

    I think part of the problem is that it's not always immediately obvious a killer is camping if you don't know what perks to run. From a distance it can be misleading, especially if you aren't running kindred. Unless you go in at least once to inspect the actions of a killer (thus sacrificing precious gen time), it can sometimes just appear that the survivors are struggling to evade the killer, but not necessarily being camped. And that's important - as these two scenarios require opposite solutions. It's true with enough time and experience you can typically (though I see rank 1's do it often enough) discern the situation at hand - most purple ranks and worse don't have this more advanced skill, and thus - run like lambs to the slaughter or moths to a flame (BP and oh so sweet WGLF stacks).

    Of course solving this problem seems difficult and I won't pretend I know the answers. I can think of lots of bad, easier to implement solutions, but none that feel great. It's one of those things that continues to exist because it's tough to fix without a massive undertaking - one that devs obviously feel could be spent elsewhere.

    SWF groups having the almighty over powered voice chat, and they get to rudely tea bag all the time. What do killers get.........Nothing, other than a ghost face who can teabag.
