An individual who remains in one position for the majority of a match in a computer game is known as a camper. Taking on the role of a camper allows a player to pick off other players who come near them, without being spotted. It can also give an individual an advantage over other players because they can guard an item or objective point easier.
In the computer game Quake, players may position themselves on a platform with the rail gun, allowing them to shoot other players without allowing those players to fight back. Usually, a player who camps too much is looked down upon by the other players.
