Score Streaks Perks and Wildcards

Score Streaks Perks and Wildcards

Score Streaks

Streaks have been one of Call of Duty’s signature multiplayer elements since their introduction in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare and they have inevitably returned in Black Ops 2. The biggest change however is that the streaks are now score streaks instead of kill streaks. Thats right, players no longer need to rely solely on kills (and thus neglect objectives) in order to to earn streaks.

Players can earn points by by fulfilling objectives and killing opponents and when enough points have been accumulated, they can use one of their scorestreaks to wreak havoc on opposition players.

As scorestreaks have returned in a more numerous fashion than ever before you now have an even bigger range of cool and amusing ways to torment other players online. Here is a list of scorestreaks available, what they do, when they are unlocked and how many points they require to activate.
