Well i made this thread to discuss and write our anti-camping tactics.

And before the R1/RB people come here to say that covering is implemented in the game, it's a tactic, that i'm an asshole because i go running and gunning, please either you leave this thread or stay here if you want to but don't bitch.

I'm not saying that covering is bad, but there's a huge difference between covering because you don't want to get your body drown with bullets and staying in one place waiting for someone to come to just hold the aim button and shoot.

I don't like to cover, i never do it, and i know the consequences of not doing that. But there are some people that breaks my head. People like rooftop assholes and campers.

Maybe you think it's normal, maybe you think they're using a feature of the game, i think it's bullsh*t. They have a huge advantage against people that are not covering.

What do you do when you see a camper? I do leave the fight almost every time but there are some other times that you just can't leave and you need to kill them. And that's the topic of this thread.

I always use the RPG but the ammo is so expensive, i sometimes leave traps with sticky bombs but amlost always the traps don't work.

 

Please you could help me and help people like me, share what you do when you see someone camping and you may solve my life here in this game. :)

Use a minigun and aim around the corner, you'll kill them if you react fast enough, use explosives, preferably the rpg, use a bullet proof car like the entity, or use a tank, jet or buzzard. Off the radar us also a good option since you can try to flank around them.

If they are on a rooftop, you can call an airstrike and throw it on top of the roof.  If the building is too tall, you can probably throw it close to where he is camping from.  Also, calling the cops on them may work too.  The number is (911).

Ignore them. Honestly, if they're waiting in one spot never moving, should it not be so hard to leave?

I don't want too seem snide or sarcastic but here we go.

Tactics : any mode or procedure for gaining advantage or success.

 

When you run and gun you are zig zag combat rolling right.

 

Swap your tactics a cover camper will have too be tricked or smoked out.  Tear gas or call for air strike...Military snipers wait for days for there shot and at max distance we may see your blip but not you....

 

Run and gun works well. But against a skilled sniper your a dead man...find cover call Lester/Lamar ,mugger off the radar,call mercenaries, merry weather back up helicopter, blind fire. Very your tactics so you remain unpredictable....combat roll backwards works wonders.

 

Rooftop snipers are difficult but launcher  if low enough, also.the explosions cause snipers to wobble their aim....also have fun with the grenade launcher...you can bounce.them off walls, blind fire wit  them as well.

 

If your wearing bright colors, a top hat, showing a lot of skin etc you pretty much just put a bullseye on you head, anything that extends your sprite will reveal your location.  Against a heavy sniper rifle that is a death sentence.

Sometimes you just can't get any closer because you'll get shot. I rarely see campers, but I'm very often in the situation where me and my enemy are moving towards each other and we both end up behind cover. I do one of two things: walk out anyway and risk it, usually getting killed, or use explosives. I usually prefer the grenade launcher, but I use the RPG if there's something very close to him that I can hit. The reason I like to use the grenade launcher is because it doesn't just keep going if you miss but it will land somewhere close to where you aimed, and its rate of fire is much higher than the RPG's. Shoot one grenade, if it missed adjust your aim and shoot another one. It's best to blind fire them. Another thing you can do is throw a sticky bomb and detonate it in the air when you think it's close to him. Works on people on rooftops too if you can't shoot a grenade or an RPG up there.

 

Also, I imagine this is a lot less of a problem in free aim because if he moves out of cover, he still has aim while you can already be aiming at the spot where he'll be.

Thank you, these are some good ones.

 

 Its called tactical superiority. The high ground wins ,low enough grenade /grenade launcher. Call Lester hide blip. Flank them, sticky bomb the ladder, drive a vehicle towards awning so you can get up there. Can they blind fire, even ground grenade at their feet, or be fun tear gas them.......or make them come too you...to bad we couldn't deploy a decoy blip....

 

Run and gun has its uses, so does combat rolling, and finding cover, mix it up and you may see a vast change in how you play.....and your effectiveness

Maybe i'll try that. Leaving the running and gunning world? It wll be hard man, but sometimes you need to adapt to your surroundings

People always say free-aim is better, i'm so bad at free-aim that i'm scared of it :(

grenade launcher is perfect for this situation, just aim a little bit above where their the floor they're standing on is, and the grenade will roll right next to them

 

 

roof top campers are jerks though, retreat to a helicopter and kamikaze/buzzard missile them

While I do use cover and rooftops, whenever I encounter one, usually on top of my building (tinsel), I feel obligated to get a chopper, fly high, go off radar, parachute in, then stab them in the neck. It sends a powerful message.

4 people in a helicopter, go dark (off radar) a quarter mile out and halo drop out over the target... Everyone takes a corner on a elevated vantage point, creating a kill box around the camper and giving you tactical superiority against his position as well as the surrounding spawn locations... Problem solved! ;)

If the problem persists or it's a "crew camp" scenario... Well, then overwhelming force is always a option as well! :p

well.. depending on the situation, i would say go off radar and rush them with whatever weapon you feel would get the kill. or try to snipe them from a good distance. (maybe a rooftop)

 

when all else fails.. i guess you can go for a lazer/tank/buzzard.     or just become a modder

I don't play free aim either but more because I like to play casually.

Usually a few quick RPG rounds or some stickies will fix the problem. But if you are good enough, you can run into the open and coax him to pop out a few seconds and combat roll and land a headshot. But do not underestimate the lag in this game. I run out in the open for usually 2 seconds then start rolling. Might need a bit of practice if you are unlucky enough to have 2 or more morons camping like that. If he quickly rolls back into cover then immediately find your own and use the sticky if close enough.

Camping is a tactic.  It's a fucking sensible one at that.  If GTAO were taking place in the real world then all you pussies would be hiding for days.  Discuss tactics for getting round it, for sure, but don't diss it, because it's legit.  The only people that would cuss it are the people that fall foul of it.

I know a few:

- Tear Gas Grenade. If they stay near it too long, it will kill them.

- Grenade, Sticky Bomb, & Airstrike. Similar to tear gas but more range for damage.

- Back Up. Call in Mercenaries and Back Up Chopper or have a player assist. Even with the ability to switch between targets very quickly with Auto Aim, they'll get shot.

- Off the Radar. They won't see you coming. Also try throwing explosives unseen while off the radar to trick them. I've done this several times and it works wonderfully.

- Flank. Don't just shoot or throw explosives in one direction. Catch them off guard.

Hope this helps.

Its a tactic but a cheap one.Camping requires no skill whatsoever other than your opponent getting impatient and popping out like a fool.

This is not real life, you can't compare real life and camping, why? because it's a game.

And what if we whine about this? We are discussing our tactics to get rid of campers, i clearly said above that if you support R1/RBers just leave the thread, again, we are discussing anti-camping tactics.

"It's a sh*tty tactic because it beat me" Yes sir, you're right, it's a sh*tty tactic because it beat me, it beats everyone.

In COD for example, can you kill a camper? Of course not, you don't know where is he, he has all the areas where you can attack him covered, and if you manage to enter his little area he'll kill you first. It's a sh*tty tactic because the other people is in a huge disadvantage. This thread is about sharing our actions and reactions when we see a camper, it is not about if camping is sh*tty or not.

I find grenades, grenade launchers and sniper rifles to be pretty effective on getting rid of rooftop noobs. depending on the height of the roof, sometimes being further away is required if they are really high up, they wont render on the screen from too far away but you cant just watch for the muzzle flash when they shoot someone else and boom, mission accomplished.  Buzzard is a really bad idea unless you get lucky because he will most likely shoot you before you hit him.  I virtually never go off radar cause at only a minute its pretty f*cking worthless and youve pretty well gotta be close enough to them to let you have any time to do anything with it that they can usually kill you while your handicap on the phone as it takes so long to activate it if they are advancing at you.  Every time i use it when they are a couple blocks away it will always expire before you can get to the rooftop. it may gain you about 1 kill in a back and forth fight as thats all that anyone whos used it against me has been able to get. I just go the opposite way and stay under cover if they do it and most times they wont even get one kill, lol! not really worth it in my opinion.

A camper's game is simple and their tactics are easy to combat if you have a little skill.

 

I think camping is a very cheap tactic, so I have zero qualms with beatting them at their own game of "cheapness". I use an RPG or grenade launcher for wall huggers and heavy sniper or minigun for roof dwellers.

 

In my experience people usaully camp when they are getting a hurting put on them, so you can just leave the area to draw them out. If it's just some asshole shooting randoms down you can get him from where he's camping by going off the map and killing him. He will spawn somewhere nearby and from there it's a cake walk.

RPG, sticky, grenade, off the radar, as a last resort, tank. Seriously though don't run and gun expecting not to die, that is just stupid.

Its actually quite effective in auto aim lobbies once you master the combat roll. screw up your timing and youre dead however, haha!  Ive taken on multiple targets and won before the 1.13 patch when the lobbies started lagging so bad that two button combo commands fail when pressed at the normal rate of speed, you have to do it much slower to get it to work, half the time i press the button to combat roll my character jumps instead, not good.
