[quote=“MidnightButterSweats;c-216353”]Spawn camping is more often than not just a sign of bad team balance.
However, what most people call spawn camping in this is just being killed right outside of spawn, where as spawn camping is actually being killed upon spawning in (unable to make any player actions before death). This game does have protections against that, but at the same time, they’re easy to exploit.
I dunno how many times I’ve used Proxy or Fletcher to sit at the top of the first attacker spawn escalators in Underground, or the middle attacker spawn escalators, and nuke players as soon as they make a move action, but it’s enough that I stopped doing it. Similarly, I stopped playing Chapel because sniping directly into attacker middle spawn and defender final spawn for free kills, and as basically a REQUIRED attack/defense strategy, got old really fast.
In general, this game is worse than most other games about spawn camping prevention, but at the same time, the majority of ‘spawn camp’ cases are still just bad teams being bad.[/quote]
For the elevators, the best thing to do is wait until the square boxes disappear and cook a frag. Source: lots and lots of exploiting.
