What are the better streaks for each map?

#1SevenDayCandlePosted 3/27/2013 10:51:28 PM
Just ran Lodestar, K9, Swarm on Plaza (by accident).

12 Lodestar kills (off 2 of them, 2nd only only got 15 seconds of use before end of game)
8 Swarm Kills (only 1 Swarm)
6 K9 Kills (only 1 K9 unit)

Next was Express, so I switched streaks to Sentry, AGR, Stealth Chopper.

22 Sentry Kills (off 3 sentries)
4 AGR kills (off 3 AGRs)
8 chopper kills (off 3 choppers)

Pretty craptastical. I've never been impressed by the K9 or Swarm, just haven't netted me anywhere near enough kills to seem OK for the amount of points. I keep trying them hoping maybe I'll get lucky.

What streaks would you run on each map and why?

I figured the Sentry + AGR + SC combo on Express would be good, AGR to patrol indoors, Chopper outdoors. The AGR to me is trash, gets me under 3 kills per use. SC is pretty craptastical too, rarely gets me anything worthwhile. The sentries treat me well most of the time though. I'm only averaging 2.1 kills per use, but some games they'll get 10+ kills per sentry gun.

The only 'high' streak I see that usually does work for me is the Lodestar, averaging 9.1 per use which isn't half bad, plus it's entertaining.

I don't see a reason to switch scorestreaks for maps. Now for game types, I would always switch in care package for domination. So easy to toss on your base and be perfectly safe.
I have to admit that I rarely get good scorestreaks so I don't equip em.

Sentry Gun absolutely slays on Raid and Standoff (domination).

I've always tried to switch them up for maps. The Lodestar isn't going to be all that impressive on something like Express (or even Plaza) due to all the indoor areas.

Sentry gun <3. It's either hit or miss. Not that difficult to get though.

When it's a miss, it'll likely be taken out before it gets a kill.
When it's a hit, it'll get you 10-15 kills no problem.

I've got spots on each map where I put them that work out quite well.

I've got a low kill-to-use ratio for them, but that's because half the time they get taken out before they even get placed lol. Doesn't bother me though.

The AGR and stuff like that just SUCK IMHO. You can be against complete noobs and the AGR doesn't do much damage at all. I'm not controlling the damn thing either, not my thing.

Both of these killstreaks can wreck havoc among a team that doesn't run EMP grenades or C4. I can easily net 10+ kills with each of those streaks if the other team doesn't go out of their way to take them out.

I think my record is 22 kills off 1 Sentry on Domination on Raid lol.

I love the War Machine too. Record for that is 28 kills off 2 uses (24 total shots).

All I can say is that "Warthog on Carrier" is one of my all time favorite killstreak/scorestreak moments in the series.


Especially if you have a couple of teammates hanging out by the doorways while the enemy team is trying to run to for cover.

Puts a smile on my face each and every time... :)

No matter the game mode, I will run the VSAT. The other streaks, it depends. Normally, in TDM I'll run UAV/CUAV/VSAT, as for other modes, it depends on the map.

Cargo, Yemen: Stealth Chopper/VSAT/Escort Drone
Overflow: Stealth Chopper/VSAT/K9
Aftermath, Drone, Grind, Hijacked: AGR/VSAT/K9
Mirage, Turbine: VSAT/Warthog/Swarm
Downhill, Hyrdo, Meltdown: VSAT/VTOL/K9

I think that's all the maps. Sometimes I might have a switch around, depending on how I feel etc. It really is as simple as - loads of buildings = send in AGR and K9, not so many buildings, send in K9 so enemy spawn outside for air based streaks/or player controlled ones.
