How will killstreaks work? in blops 2

zombies4lyfe

I noticed a very large change in the way killstreaks worked in the past 3 call of duty games. I want to know how you guys think it will work in black ops 2? What ive noticed is, in mw2 they chained meaning a predator missile will chain and get you your hellicopter. In black ops they made it so you needed to get the kills with your weapons in order to get the 11 (gun) streak for dogs. In mw3 they chained again but were split up into 3 catagories and what i noticed was if you dont use your kill streak example: predator missile before you get another predator missile, that you lose the previous one. will this happen in black ops 2 or will you be able to save all of your care packages, preds choppers etc... give me your thoughts!

    HOPEFULLY they are not the stacking killstreak kind. This just "simplifies" the killstreak system and cheapens it.

    This is how I would like them to work:

     

    Killstreaks don't stack - don't expect to get a heli and then go sit in a corner while riding it's killfeed into other killstreaks

     

    Killstreaks recycle - I work hard for my killstreaks, so I deserve them even into the 30+ kills (kudos MW3)

     

    If you don't use it you WON'T lose it - biggest rip off in the killstreak catagory. Sometimes sh*t hits the fan and I can't afford to call in my whatever, so it's not fair that I lose it

    It will be interesting to see. If they are doin what they say they are doing, which is completely reworking multiplayer from the ground up. I would be dissapointed if they go with an already used killstreak system. I'm sure it will include points instead of just kills but other than that they could do anything with it.

     

    I do agree tho no stacking killstreaks, and if you earn them, you keep them. Tho there should be a timer inbetween using them. could you imagine spamming predator missle 5x in a row?

    They wont be, its all about point streaks now. Anyway's, David V. announced their will be some item packages as well as care packages and those item packages contain ammo, death machines, grenade launchers, RPGs, and body armor. That should be interesting and other than that their isn't to much known about the new streaks. Specialist is supposedly supposed to return and Deathstreaks are out, and apparently one of the assault packages streaks allows you to pull out a scope and see through walls. Sounds innovating!

    PS i liked Black Ops killstreak system much better then MW3's Assault package.

      Black Ops kill streak setup is far better than MW3. I say keep it simple. Also, you earn them you get them.

        Black ops nailed it with the killstreaks. You need to kill in order to get a kill streak. Not just camp a spot in domination and get a point for a flag capture and ride that into another killstreak. Mw3's pointstreak sucked. You should not earn a deadly reward for just capping flags. I do hope black ops adopts the idea of recyling you KS and choosing which KS you feel like using at any point and not in order. I typically run  a UVA, Naplan Strike And Sentry Gun. I want to use my uav to see where i should direct my strike . I may not want to use it as soon as i get it and rather hold on to it to help my team if we get in a bad spot. And no Stacking!!! why should your dogs or you chopper gunner earn you more. Stacking only encourages camping to get higher streaks more often

          guys thanks for all these replys they are great. I wouldnt completly mind if it was back to black ops where you needed kills for your assault streak, along with caps/takedowns. I definitly wana see dogs again, and support should not have emps or stealth bombers. Support should rather offer you more points for useing "support" and no lethal killstreaks. keep this discussion alive guys i beleive its a good one.

            I only played mw3 for just a few days and i could tell a huge difference in how their "pointstreaks" worked compared to black ops. I dont really like the seperate packages you choose from. I think it should be kept simple and to the point. I think Black ops needs to add a few more but not so many that you should have a hard time choosing which streak you think is best. Im not a high killstreak guy, in that i only ever get dogs,chopper gunner,or gunship through a care package. I stay consistent in the 3-8 killstreaks. They just need to have a few more choices at each level. Maybe combine Rolling thunder and Napalm strike into 1 killstreak called "Hell from the Heavens". Or Have a Napalm Mortar Strike. Maybe have a mix of a few streaks they already have to make new ones. One idea i thought would be cool is the you have a plane drop Liquid Nitrogen Bombs and if you get hit by it your weapon freezes up for 5 secs and you cant fire plus you lose half health. What do you guys think??

    1. No game ending killstreakreward

    2. No without luck kill every enemy killstreak (moab)

    3. No hiddin killstreakreward

    4. Kills from killstreakrewards not counting for killstreak

    5. Earned killstreakreward is earned killstreakreward

    6. In for example dom capping equels 1 kill for reward

    7. Destroying killstreak reward equels 1 kill for reward and x amount of points

         Helping destroying only gives points
