Is it just me, or do these scorestreaks SUCK

#1Sevi_neyPosted 2/7/2013 2:37:01 AM
Majorly? Everyone is spamming black hats and shooting down UAV quicker then ever. It's pretty much made even the higher scorescreaks pointsless.

The stealth chopper? Blind Eye + launcher = dead within 2 seconds. Same as escort drone. Warthog is also usually complete ****. Dragonfire is too frail to be useful. Agr can be killed off in one Black Hat.

The only useful streak in the whole 3rd column is Orbital VSAT

UGH

Give me something more constructive to go on than that.

Do you agree or not?

I mean, I can't count how many times I've called in a stealth chopper and it's been shot down before it even reaches its destination on the map. I'm never using it again at this point, it's just a waste. A freaking Hunter Killer would get me more kills. I'm not saying "feel bad for me" or "patch it" or anything. Just expressing that I'm sort of disappointed that I have to resort to using very high killstreaks, because those are harder to obtain, and both Lodestar + VTOL break momentum, (excluding the highest of them all: K9 + Swarm). I'm not honestly good enough to reliably get VSAT + K9 + Swarm in any consistent manner.

Has anyone else quit using some of the streaks I've mentioned due to being underwhelming?

Yep I don't even bother with trying to get the high streaks anymore. I've only gotten them through care packages (because no way do I get 1900 for a swarm before getting shot from behind). Like you said, the planes get shot down too fast to be of use and most use blind eye anyway.

I've started using UAV, hunter killer and CUAV with hardline. And using them in ground war due to more ppl and the assists come piling in, usually allowing me to keep cycling right through them and getting pretty high scores. Ground war domination is good for getting points due to more ppl and capping scores to keep it rolling. If I'm in the mood for a high streak ill use care package and engineer to reroll.

if they weren't the usual siren will go of ... i.e. OP ...

and who cares about scorestreak kills ...? i'm done with almost all of thier challenges so i really don't care anymore ...
#6Sevi_ney(Topic Creator)Posted 2/7/2013 3:22:04 AM
I don't even want to use UAV/CUAV anymore because that just gives the enemy team something to shoot down for points. Like CUAV gets you 100 just for shooting it down. And it's super easy and can be done with a black hat also!

Frustrating... Oh well, looks like I'll just perma unlock VSAT and keep K9 and Swarm on just for fun, since the other streaks are kind of worthless now all of a sudden.

I do like the UAV + Hellstorm + Lightning strike combo though. That's still usually more effective than Stealth Chopper or AGR.

when i use them it gets shot down in seconds. but when the enemy uses it, NO ONE carries a launcher. is the game trying to pit me with bad players? its like people who support the team by shooting things down get matched with people who dont shoot things down. then the enemy gets a VSAT and Warthog up and everyone backs out. kd = skill my foot.

The end is nigh! *continues playing game*

Haha happens to me all the time. I get an aerial KS it's gone before it gets a kill. Opposing team gets warthog I die 10 times because I don't have blind eye on and my teammates are too busy running into the middle of the map and dying to be of any use. Or the best part...they stand there with the fire button held down shooting it and alerting everyone to where they are on the map.

Good that they suck. Use your gun instead of magic missiles falling from the sky to get free kills.

You never hear me go in any other FPS, gee I wish I had scorestreaks right now, so they can pad my KDR for me.

Fair enough right. But I've always liked to think that the reason behind CODs success post COD4 lay wedged in it's scorestreak systems. Obtaining them is addictive. It keeps me coming back for more, knowing that through their use, I can dominate another team like a boss. Maybe I have been too focused on them lately, but harassing another team by their use is freaking schweet.

That and most other FPS's have **** online.
