A Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War leak hinted at fan-favorite scorestreaks returning in the new Treyarch title.
Scorestreaks, first introduced in Black Ops II, reinvented the popular killstreak system from Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. Players could earn streaks like the UAV, Precision Airstrike, Helicopters and more by not only getting kills, but by also helping with objectives. Additionally, the system allowed the esports/competitive side of Call of Duty to adopt streaks.
The Black Ops Cold War streaks system is also getting revamped with progression not resetting on death. A controversial change, but Treyarch claims new changes implemented will help keep it balanced.
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Leak Hints at Popular Scorestreaks Returning
Call of Duty Twitter account TheMW2Ghost announced that there are six scorestreaks the public hasn't seen yet. Those streaks are as follows:
- A mini-gun
- Radar Jammer (Counter Spy-Plane)
- Snipers Nest
- Advanced Spy Plane
The account said that Dogs should be in the game, but it's unknown if it's just one dog or a pack like in World at War. Specialists aren't returning in Black Ops Cold War, but old Specialist weapons seem to be returning as Scorestreaks.
