There are not many streamers who would put their stream live, hop into a game of Blackout, and disregard high octane offensive gameplay for some old fashioned camping techniques.

However, Twitch streamer Aris Bakhtanians, known as AvoidThePuddle did exactly that in a recent game, when he jumped into a game of Call of Duty’s new battle royale mode and decided to sit in a corner and hide.

Rather than finding it boring, Aris found the experience invigorating, and went on a priceless rant about why he enjoyed camping so much.

“That was fun,” stated the American. “I love camping, it’s like the most exciting thing you can do!”

“Looking at that door, listening to everything happening outside, imagining what what’s going on out there but knowing that you don’t want anything to do with it!

“I want to know what’s going on out there, but not enough to open this door. So I’ll just listen and watch that number of people go down. Woo, that shit is hype,” laughed the former Soul Caliber World Champion.

Aris continued to think about the positives of camping, telling his chat: “You hear gunshots outside, number goes down. Like, damn! That could’ve been me! I’m in here though so I’m safe. Man, that shit is hype!”

Blackout has already provided fans of popular streamers some hilarious moments. Recently, Ninja fell through the map thanks to some questionable driving by Shroud, while Seagull got unfortunately crushed by a falling loot crate.

Warzone player discovers perfect way to counter Airport tower campers

A Warzone player has found the perfect way to counter campers in the Verdansk Airport tower, and it might be the best way to bait those annoying players out and get across the runway.

If you’ve played Warzone even once, you’ll know exactly which tower we mean: the one north of Airport that has only one way up, from which players can easily camp, scout out enemies and lay fire upon those trying to rotate to zone.

Even with the inclusion of external ziplines to many tall buildings in Verdansk, the tower still doesn’t have one, meaning that once players are up there, it’s incredibly difficult to get them down.

Typically, you’ll struggle in a straight gunfight against these players — so what you need to do is bait them out, instead, and capitalize when they’re distracted.

Tower campers are among some of the most annoying players in Warzone.

As showcased below by NadxCH, a helicopter could be your key to infiltrating the tower — though not how you might think.

While many people will have tried to attack head-on while in a helicopter, the plan instantly falls flat if the tower campers have a rocket launcher or explosives of some sort, that will see you and your team come crashing down instantly.

Instead, you need to assign a teammate to fly past in the helicopter after landing up top, and strike while the iron is hot. While the designated driver flies the heli in one direction, you’ll need to jump off the top and plan your parachute perfectly to land in the control room while the opponents have their back turned and are distracted.

Obviously, this will often be easier said than done. Jumping off the top of the tower and timing everything right to land in the control room is a skill you’ll have to practice over and over again to get right, so you’ll have to be confident you can pull it off first.

Secondly, you’ll have to rely on the enemy team being distracted by the helicopter. They likely will be, and will want to take it down while it’s so close, which is why it’s the perfect opportunity to strike.

Otherwise, you might find yourself trapped while trying to traverse the map — and there are few worse types of players to die to than those in Airport tower.
