What is the point of most killstreaks?

Decree117

They all seem to not do **** in this game...one in particular..the trinity rocket! really? 7 kills to get nothing out of it! You can hit someone in the head with that missle and not even a hit marker...just bring back the predator missle...and also most all the other killstreaks seem pretty worthless in this game.

    They are similar to the old 3/5/7 streaks. Just an added reward for getting them. You get a few kills out of them, that's how it's supposed to be. It was fun to get those game changer streaks in the past, but this is better. Sometimes the battlehind goes nuts and gets you a bunch a kills. Helo pilot gets you a lot of kills.  It also depends on the map, a lot of these maps have cover, that also takes away from the aerial streaks.

    you ask the question and then state "they all". Some are very good and killing, revealing, helping, improving the tides. The Trinity rocket im not a fan of, and I am using it now to learn how to best use it. It seems to fire far to quick to hit anyone, but your right, for a 7 point streak to get one more kill from it is some what pointless.

    assault streaks are shockers  helo pilot can be alright most times but all in all shockers, could be that there's alot of cover now? ,DLC that! Support has improve heaps well done IW , Specialist i guess good, haven't really exploited this yet, my opinion.

    Im glad the killstreaks are taking a backseat in this game, that was easily the biggest issue I had in MW2 was being unable to move without something shooting you from the sky.

      Black Ops 2 is kill streak city. I'm super happy that the Ghosts kill streaks don't absolutely take over the map. I remember getting 12 kills with an escort drone. That's a bit ridiculous. I had to keep a blind eye/flak jacket class ready on Black Ops 2 to avoid all the bullshit.

       

      Kill streaks should be a slight reward but they shouldn't decimate the enemy team.

       

      The KEM strike makes sense because if you're dominating that hard you deserve to get 6 free kills. Most 5-10 streaks are fairly easy and common if you're a decent player.

       

      If you're getting 20+ kills each game (depending on game mode) chances are you don't need more kills.

    I like that I can finally call in a chopper and not have it shot down in 5 seconds. In BO2, any chopper was toast in seconds. Now, I hardly see anyone shooting rockets. However, it seems the chopper pilots in Ghosts are idiots. I've called in choppers and they hardly shoot. I'm yelling at the TV for them to do something!. Funny.
