Are all good online shooters gone?

You're just gonna have to play Counterstike, and maybe swallow your pride when that CT blows your head off.

Counterstrike is great. Loadout and titanfall are fun. Besides that, shooters suck these days.

No. Q2 is still enough popular. Just wondering whether there are newer popular online shooters, where fragging is the main point.

I'm not saying classic DM/TDM is even nearly camping free. But really, you cannot win there by camping only. You need to know how camp, but you also need to able take on your opponent directly, because most often that is the faster way to frag than camping. And Quake / UT DM is all about who can frag faster.

The closest there is to old school shooters in the multiplayer department is Quake live and that Tribes game, which had potential but was ruined, and really the game has way too little fighting.

The only FPS I even enjoyed recently was Renegade X, which at least is completely free, no paid advantages, no modern-shooting-feature crap and gameplay that involves movement and an incredibly original gametype that is base vs base, but when it comes down to it, its somewhat campy, and not really anything like UT and those games.

Then there's Natural Selection 2 which is somewhat original but even farther away from that.

I'm naming those only because when you ask for online shooters at ALL, there is basically -nothing-, nevermind anything like UT. You will simply not find anything, at best some of the experiments in the last 5 years are all utterly, 100% dead.

I hate camping games also, and I enjoy natural selection 2 and planetside 2. Admittedly I dislike camping games a lot because I die a lot. It's because I run out with submachine guns and try to play the game like it's not a camping game, but then I remember it is a camping game, and then I stop playing.

Someone obviously doesn't understand how competitive CS works. One team Guards the bomb site the other attacks. Obviously the CT's aren't going to walk out into plain sight so the T's can find and kill them easily.

Meh, I enjoy the competitive aspect. It adds a lot of depth to the game, and if you've ever watched a CS tournament it's extremely entertaining.
