How to be a bastard

griefer gri:fõ_ noun
1) Someone, usually in an online game, who deliberately attempts to degrade another’s gaming experience.
2) Someone with more imagination than the rest...

Griefers are much maligned. Condemned as the playground bullies of the online world, they are in fact masters of innovation. Sure, there’s the sort of idiot who mindlessly crashes an online funeral, but what about the guy who figures out a way to ninja-style-kill a Battlefield pilot in midair? For every jerk who spawn-camps, there’s another who is healing the enemy when no one’s looking. These are the anarchists of gaming, taking the ingredients they’re given and making a cake no one was expecting. Jealous? You should be. So why not begin your career of adding imagination to multiplayer gaming today?

1) Mile high murder club - Battlefield 1942

Grief factor - 2 out of 5
Glee factor - 4 out of 5

Battlefield 1942 offers many weak griefing opportunities. Anyone can place mines on spawn points. We can all ruin games so easily. Slightly better is the Trojan Jeep, where you drive a jeep into the enemy base, plant an explosive and sneak out. Then hide nearby and wait for the unsuspecting locals to take advantage of this gift. Let them drive off for a good few seconds and then blow it to bits. But best of all, how about knifing a pilot... in mid-air?

How to: A glitch in BF1942 enables you to climb onto the wings of planes, and ride along without getting blown off. The pilot has no idea you’re there when he takes off, and won’t be any the wiser until you sidle up behind him and stab him in the back of the head. Parachute to safety, leaving the poor player mystified and dead.

    holy shit, i understand pks are a pain in the ass. i know trappers have no life... but this freaking fansy guy is/was the BIGGEST PAIN THE ASS i've ever seen. I mean... he killed neutrals too, not just evil guys... i guess tho, he was a griefers griefer... (even tho i don't know if being "evil" on that game made you a griefer by default.)
