Over 750 care packages and not one with DOGS ? Only 1 Swarm ?

I find it very strange that I have earned over 750 care packages and never received one with DOGS. I am also running Engineer and have switched most care packages I have never earned Dogs. I did receive 1 SWARM but that was it. I was playing with a friend the other day and he received 2 DOGS ( on separate games ) but in the same day and hasn't even earned half the care packages I have.

1 - does any one know what the probability is for receiving DOGS? Better yet does anyone have a list of all the Probabilities for care packages? I remember there was one for BO1 but I haven't seen one for BO2

2 - do you guys think because I am running Engineer it might be affecting my chances of getting DOGS? Or maybe better care packages? Maybe by running Engineer the system punishes my odds some how?

While I don't believe players should earn high Streaks in CPs I would at least say you should have a 1% chance at getting something more than 1000pts.

Don't assume that people that run cp, can't get high kill streaks. I play hard core and can get swarms very easy. I get at least 4 to 5 cp a game. The thing is i don't get more than 7 kills with my swarms. I get maybe 4 or 5 dog kill's. To me there's no point in running high kill streaks on bo2. Out of 5 cp, I might get 2 good things. That seems really fair to me.

Even more so why someone shouldn't get freebies like that out of a CP. You get a SWARM which earns you your other SWARM. Doesn't seem legit to me. You don't have to do any work

I play KC a swarm won't get you another swarm not even close. Out of all my cp I've gotten 3 swarms and two dog's. The higher streaks i get are escort drone and vsat. Which are easy to get. I run uav cuav and cp with hardline. So i have a uav,cuav up majority of all lobby's. I take a gambe on cp, also I've called in 3,177 cp like i said only 3 swarms 2 dogs.

My SWARMs average me about 10 kills (250pts) and if you get half the tags they leave behind that another 500pts. You're pretty close right there

10 kills in swarm is 150 points ! And you might Retrive all of em ! SWARM usually kill the Player who is a Run and gunner. I killed by my own SWARM most of the times. Since I have close combat Starting to end. Lucky you get 10 kills in average.

But what's the point in earning a swarm off another one when by that time there's no one left to get hit?  I mean, I'm not arguing against you or anything, but, what harm is done in a swarm that just uselessly blankets the sky?

Strange, I think I've used even less care packages than you, and have seen dogs at least twice.

Just luck, I guess. Well, I say luck, but dogs in a package are a death sentence in my opinion. Everyone knows and runs straight for it... grenade bait.
