Someone who waits in a corner for other gamers to walk in front of them for an easy kill.

In video gaming, camping is a logical, yet controversial tactic where a player obtains a static strategic position of advantage, like camping in a bush or something similar. This behavior manifests in different ways depending on the type of game (online text adventure, graphical MMO, first-person shooter, etc.), but invariably involves a player waiting in one location (often one that is not easily accessible for the other players to reach) for the game (or other players of the game) to do something which they can take advantage of, often repeatedly. By camping, a player is able to learn and adapt to the limited environment he/she is playing in; noting specific points to check repetitively. By following this method with little fault, a lower number of deaths can be achieved.
