Multiplayer - Possible Camping Problem?

10 replies 410 views Edited Jun 4, 2013

It was confirmed that there is Listen Mode in the multiplayer. When you stand completely still then you won't show up on listening mode because you're not making any noise. This could make people camp alot and could make the multiplayer not as fun to play. I hope they will adress this somehow. Thoughts?

I'd guess there'd be a hardcore mode without listen mode or any boosters or other unbalances. Just pure skill.

Campers gonna camp, regardless of what game you're playing.

When I'm crouch-walking as a stealther, I'll be immune to those camping tactics anyway.

This is yet another factor that'll slow down the gameplay, and for that I am truly thankful. Amen.

Depends: People have no reason to camp if there is no leaderboard...

Here's the thing.  In Supply Raid the goal is to go out and collect supplies to improve the survivability of your clan.  So if someone camps and doesn't go out to get supplies they're just hurting themselves.

listen mode has a meter, it only lasts 2-3 seconds then has to recharge.

And more importantly the team. It's like in U3 Team Objective where one person stays in the spawn instead of rushing the Turf at the good time to rush.

If you want this to be realistic. You will camp son.

 

But sooner or later you will be hungry. You will have to move. Or the other team will scavenge it all, and will come guns blazing Don't forget there are bombs, smoke bombs and other buildables.

 

Camping is standing in a dark corner. But Tactical positioning is way different. and it is how this game is supposed to be played. You position yourself tactically with your clan and you move slowly from one place to another to scavenge while your buddies cover you.
