What are ScoreStreaks

Score streaks are the new implementation of kill streaks that Treyarch added to help those players that were not able to get higher kill streaks an extra boost to get the score streaks. There are a lot more score streaks that have been added to the game, and to find a list of the score streaks in the game, what they do, and the point value needed you can go HERE .

The best cheap Score Streaks

I am going to break this down into two sections, cheap and expensive score streaks.. Cheap ones will include low point value score streaks, and the expensive ones will include those that cost over 1000 points..

So, Let me talk about the first one.. The hunter Killer. This is usually a guarantee 100% kill in hardcore, and even in core will typically guarantee you a kill.. Once you learn the tricks, you can dodge them, but overall these are a great way for a free kill..

The UAV.. These are EXTREMELY useful in Black Ops 2. Mainly because of the difficulty of getting ghost, and even with ghost you are not always able to be hidden from the radar.. So personally I think UAV's are a great way for you to get free kills.

The Death Machine.. This is a great weapon that will always guarantee you some free kills. This is not one of the best scorestreaks on Hardcore, but on Core it will give you extra precision with the on screen sights that will give you a boost in the game. These are very useful, but only suggested for core.

Guardian.. These are very useful. ESPECIALLY on Hardcore.. This is because it does not take much for you to kill someone with one of these on hardcore. They are great tools, and will help you get further in objective based games..

Care package.. This is a score streak that is A LOT of fun. You always take a shot and with the engineer perk you can flip the care package and increase your chance of getting something great. This is a great way for you to get helicopters, and the other score streaks that are not worth getting with straight points.

The Worst cheap score streaks

Okay so this I will try to keep short so I can get to the good expensive score streaks..

The hellstorm missile, and Lightning strike. These used to be fun when the game first came out, but on Hardcore especially they are getting trickier to use. And to be honest I used to be able to pull 2-4 kills on each of these now I have trouble sometimes getting 1.

The sentry gun.. This is good like the guardian, BUT unless you are controlling it, a lot of players wear blind eye now, and will not be hurt by the sentry gun, therefore it is not effective.

The Stealth Chopper.. A lot of players have equipment now to shoot down score streaks, so to be honest I do not see the benefit anymore in people using this score streaks. They are fun, and will get kills, but can easily be shot down, so I don't use them anymore.

War machine, and Dragonfire.. These I put together because if the user knows how to use them, then they will be able to have success with them. BUT at the same time these are fairly tough to use, and will not be effective for those who are not used to them.. Not to mention you can get these in care packages and are really not worth using as your score streak.

The Best Expensive Score Streaks

K9 Unit.. These are cool, tough to get, but will be worth getting for you.. Plus then you get to see those shepherds running around the map..

VTOL Warship.. Once again this is a cool score streak to use..Be careful on hardcore for your teammates.. BUT overall this is a very cool score streak to use. This will be very effective and typically get you a lot of kills.

LODESTAR... This is very effective on both hardcore and core.. This will get you a decent amount of kills if you know how to use it.. And will be very effective. This is a very good score streak.

The Swarm as well. The swarm is a very cool, effective kill streak, that if you can manage the kills I would suggest using this..

Keep in mind that the easiest way for you to get all these score streaks is to get them in a care package. This is fairly easy, and you will get these more often now, than you used to. I have used each of these, but now on objective games, I just use lower score streaks, so I can focus more on getting my team a win than focusing on getting those scorestreaks.

The worst Expensive Score Streaks.

First off the Warthog.. This is cool IF people are not using blind eye, but in my opinion I haven't seen enough people not using blind eye to make it worth using.

EMP System.. Don't use this.. Get it in a care package if anything, but since you have emp grenades this is not effective, and will not be worth using.. I don't like this scorestreak especially for over 1000 points..

Orbital VSAT.. Okay so this isn't quite 1000 points but I still consider it very expensive for what it does. I suggest using a care package and getting this that way..

How to set up your class

The best score streaks to honestly use are the cheap ones.. If you really want to go for those high score streaks, throw on care package..The Care package will allow you to have the best luck with getting the high care packages, and I would even go further to say use engineer, this will allow you to flip care packages, and also allow you to not run into enemy equipment or score streaks.

Best Scorestreaks for Objective based games..

If you are going to be playing objective based games keep your score streaks fairly simple. Remember that you are going for objectives not camping for kills. So remember that you need to use score streaks that you will be able to acquire. This is why I suggest using care packages because while most times it is a bust, if you flip it, you can usually get something that will offer some kills.

Best Score Streaks for Kill Based Games

There are plenty of score streaks for this game mode you can use, but I will suggest you using score streaks based off of your skill level. The higher your skill level, then the higher the score streaks you can try. But if you are still a beginner, then stick to those low end score streaks.

Summary

Overall in this guide you should pay attention to your own skill level when choosing score streaks.. Don't go for the big score streaks if your skill level is not good enough to get them. Just focus on having fun and things will come over time.

mw3fanatic1 3 years ago

Yes i am ive been seeing a lot of videos online about how its going to be the same as black ops with the rezzurection map pack and the others but i don't mean that it will be the same maps just the same packs with 4 or 5 zombie maps and then some multiplayer. but it doesn't come out on the ps3 until way later, that's wat i hate, but yeah anyway i really am excited its hard to save money to buy it because i always waste money on new games to try them anyway thanks and ttyl bye. :)

Johnrr631992 3 years ago from Tampa, Florida Author

Yeah, Xbox pays the Call of Duty companies a LOT of money so that Xbox gets the map packs before PS3.. But either way, they will eventually be released, and hopefully the new zombie map will be different than what is already out there.

Good vids man, keep it up.. It is very hard to get started.. I am facing a lot of difficulty on there right now, but over time you should have success.. One suggestion.. Obviously you don't need a capture HD like I have, but Ebay sells an item called a EasyCap card.. And it's fairly cheap, and should work with your computer, and would allow your videos to be a lot better in detail.. Just something to think about..

Also remember to stick with it.. Nothing happens overnight, and this site took me a full year before I started getting paid every month.. And Youtube is even harder than this site.. But all effort does pay off.

thnx and tell me more about

this easy cap card

oh yeah i have an apple computer and i need ur help cause im not good at finding this stuff, try 2 find 1 if u can and put a link, thnx:)

Here's the one I use http://www.amazon.com/Elgato-Capture-PlayStation-R...

But here is a cheap one http://compare.ebay.com/like/150695293163?var=lv&l...

OR http://www.ebay.com/itm/EasyCAP-USB2-0-1Channel-Vi...

The only thing with the cheaper ones is that they sometimes need to be configured to work on some computers, and some extra wires may be needed. I know I have tried both of those, and personally did not like them that's why I opted to go with the nice one, but I know if you get them configured they should work better than using a video camera/phone or device to video tape the actual tv..

i want 2 get the expensive one but probably can't, CAUSE i make about a hundred bucks a month and i have to put half into savings, for other things. But i might save up anyway for the cheap one at the end of the list of things what else do i need? and thnx for helping me it means a lot:)

Johnrr631992 3 years ago from Tampa, Florida Author

Sorry It took me this long to get back to you.. Between this and Youtube it's a lot of work to balance with school and everything else. None the less.. You will need basically everything that is shown here http://www.ebay.com/itm/Easycap-DC60-wires-cables-...


mw3fanatic1 profile image

mw3fanatic1 3 years ago

Its okay,but um for all those wires and things how am i going to know what to do with them,and again i have a apple computer


Johnrr631992 profile image

Johnrr631992 3 years ago from Tampa, Florida Author

Well.. I know the part that plugs into the computer uses a USB piece.. And then the rest has to do with the pieces coming out of your xbox into the tv.. Also keep in mind if you bought a more expensive one like the ELgato you need to have your xbox plugged in through a HDMI wire not the red yellow and white wire thing..

mw3fanatic1 3 years ago

will this work for ps3 ?


Johnrr631992 profile image

Johnrr631992 3 years ago from Tampa, Florida Author

I don't see why it woudn't work for PS3.. If it uses the red yellow and white pieces that plug into the TV then it should work with a PS3.. ALTHOUGH I was reading somewhere that ps3 has special abilities that makes it so people can't record footage. Although i am not sure if this is true or not.. none the less if you buy the Elgato one I have it comes with special wires for hooking up to the PS3.

okay?

Blind Eye doesn't work on the sentry gun. Only against air support, bud. That said, people are getting a lot better at dealing with Sentries (Black Hats and EMP Grenades are a lot more common than before) so it's still not as great as it was.

I kinda agree with the VSAT, it's too expensive, although I love it whenever someone on my team gets it. I don't do consistently well enough to put it on my Scorestreaks.

I usually use UAV because it's cheap, makes killing easier, and gets free points whenever someone gets a kill, Dragonfire because I finally learned how to use one, and AGR because, well... it works.

So yeah. With you on all points except that Blind Eye doesn't do shit to Sentries / AGR's. I've tried it several times, and no, there weren't any allies behind me.


Johnrr631992 profile image

Johnrr631992 3 years ago from Tampa, Florida Author

If it's user controlled then no, but AI controlled yes.. And personally I use AGR, Dogs, and Swarm lately because I am bored with the game, and have all the cards for all the other score streaks.. Plus they annoy the other team haha when you call all 3 in together..


Wraith 3 years ago

I'm pretty sure Matcho is right about Sentry Guns and AGRs. I got so damn close to killing an AGR with the FHJ, but the INSTANT before I could get the last hit I needed on it, it locked onto me and got me. Yes, I did have Blind Eye on. I checked before and after the match. In that same match, I ended up accidentally trying to kill a SENTRY GUN with the FHJ, and it turned pretty much all the way around to shoot me. BTW, absolutely NO friendlies were anywhere near the line of sight from AGR or Sentry to/past me.

One of my friends told me Drift0r mentioned something about this in one of his In-Depth videos, but I still have to double-check.


Johnrr631992 profile image

Johnrr631992 3 years ago from Tampa, Florida Author

Hmm that's interesting.. This is why i carry EMP grenades with me at ALL times anyway hahahaha..


Wraith 3 years ago

Well, I actually DID have EMP grenades on that class, but I was trying to get the "Destroy an AGR" challenge with the FHJ... In any event, my friends have told me you can even lock onto an RC-XD with the FHJ. LMAO.


Johnrr631992 profile image

Johnrr631992 3 years ago from Tampa, Florida Author

Hmm, I didn't know you could lock onto an RCXD with a FHJ.. I have been trying to tomahawk an RCXD, but I feel locking on would be just as difficult.. haha


Wraith 3 years ago

Well, since the time it takes to lock on is the same for everything, I would think it harder to kill and RC-XD with the FHJ rather than the combat axe, simply because the RC-XD moves so fast.


Johnrr631992 profile image

Johnrr631992 3 years ago from Tampa, Florida Author

Right, I mean either way I think they would both fall a LOT onto luck in the end..


Felix 3 years ago

Don't listen to some of these. The warthog randomly fires at the map and blind eye doesn't help at all. Orbital VSAT one of the overpowered streaks nothing can hide from it and I think it lasts about 45-60 seconds and also it can't be shot down. Hellstorm and Lightning strike are the two best cheap I highly recommend using these. Guardians are bad! You have to run out and place them and is your in S&D there gone.


Wraith 3 years ago

Oh, Felix... The things you don't know... Sure, the Warthog's VULCAN is fired continuously, but have you ever paid any attention to the air-to-ground missiles? EACH missile homes in on ONE player. I don't know what the extra missiles do (if there are any), but if you aren't in the line of fire for the vulcan and are using blind eye, the Warthog won't kill you.

Then the Guardians? Those are meant to help you watch your back or provide a little warning about an enemy in the targeted area.


Santa Is A Poop 3 years ago

Read the whole thing, couldn't help but think "what a muppet".

You recommend the uav, but not a vsat?, the orbital vsat is about 10 times better than a Uav.

You say the Emp systems isn't worth using? Go play the game, those emp grenades are fine for taking down guardians and sentry guns but how would you use those to destroy air based streaks?. I'd rarther take a pistol instead of a launcher, and just pack emp systems to destroy choppers, vtols, lodestars etc.

But the thing that annoyed me the most was when you said that sentry guns weren't worth using. Very few players bring emp grenades, and if you place a turrent on a high traffic area or choke point, well you're going to cripple the enemy team.

One last thing. Lightening strikes and hellstorms are brilliant for clearing objectives. If you wait until the hostile team is taking the objective instead of pulling your streaks out the moment you get them, maybe you'd be useful to your team, instead of being an utter noob.

Keep in mind that I play hardcore game modes.. Most of my guides over the last few years are for hardcore game modes, AND are for beginner players.. I try giving them an idea of the best scorestreaks to use for their level.. With the EMP idea.. You said not many players use them.. EVERYONE on my team has classes with EMP's and we always have at least 1 person with an EMP grenade ready for something that gets popped up.. Not to mention I have yet to see someones sentry/guardian get more than 1 or 2 kills in hardcore before getting taken out, either by a teammate or the enemy.


InfiniteLegacyX 21 months ago

The VSAT, EMP, and Lightning Strike worst streaks? What are you playing SnD 24/7? Ever tried Dom? Oh by the way, your reasoning on why the VSAT and EMp are bad is just pathetic. The Lightning Strike is good for taking out campers, attackers, and when you call it in, it's already there. The enemy will have no chance of escape. Now here is where you get just... stupid. THE VSAT AND EMP ARE ADVANCED UAVS AND COUNTER UAVS. THEY CAN'T BE SHOT DOWN. VSAT shows you the the position and DIRECTION of ALL players on the enemy team. It makes the average player a pro. The EMP Systems takes out all enemy scorestreaks, and doesn't allow the enemy to call in their streaks. It removes their HUD, which pretty much makes you running blind. Combine this with the VSAT and your team will roll. Did I mention assist points? Oh by the way no one uses Blind Eye and Sentry Guns are very good for holding down areas. Is this your first time playing CoD?
