Spawn Camp to stop/slow down reinforcements

4 replies 3 views Edited Feb 12, 2010

I find no one spawn camps much in this game, yet it can be an extremely useful tactic. Espeically at Raven's C on Sabotage, spawn camping with 3 guys can prevent many more Ravens from even getting to C.

 

Instead of "throwing bodies at the problem", why not use your men intelligently to stop the enemy from even getting to the objective?

 

Sure, the enemy can change spawn points, but that then leaves one side of the map enemy free. That's a win!

 

If you change the location of the fight away from the objective, soon the objective should have fewer people at it, making it easier to rush all of a sudden and take over.

 

I'd like to hear your thoughts on spawn camping, how you use it (if you do) and how successful its been for you.

Even one person disrupting one of Raven's spawn will pull 4-5 guys off in search of him. I used to do it when I wasn't Raven. My one gun away from C is well worth their 4-5 away from it.

Well I'll tell you as a Raven we have to spawn camp the attacking forces. They just don't come out in large enough groups to get anywhere in our map. Yes we get that one sneak who seems to make his way around our flanks but, with any support this one guy who seems to know what he is doing, fails because you aren't following his lead.

Kudos to the guys who do. I know it frustrates the hell out of me when get knifed or mowed down step from the spawn. I have done it as well but don't seem to last long that close to the enemy.

If you've somehow allowed enemies to spawn-camp you with gas and all that, your major questions should be "Are we really going that bad that they can send several people to attack enemy spawn" or "Damn, what a disorganised squad to let this happen."
