Black Ops 2 multiplayer: 7 changes you need to know about


Scorestreaks replace Killstreaks

The new system means the emphasis is on everything you can achieve in a match rather then just the killing. So shoot an enemy, then get a UAV assist, then defuse a bomb – that’s a streak. It’s like a combo, string things together and it fills up a meter. As you rack up the points you unlock multiple rewards, rather than having to pick whichever one you’ve unlocked at any given time. So if a 750-point streak is enough to afford a UAV, a care package and a turret, you get them all. The weight of the various event you can score for has been approached carefully. A flag-carry kill might be worth more than a bomb plant, which in turn might be worth more than a taking a Domination point and so on.
