Unintended Consequences: The Surprising Use of Killstreaks in Warzone 2
Killstreaks may be used for more than just taking down an enemy on roofs, as players of Warzone 2 have discovered. Precision Airstrikes and Mortar Strikes are both effective methods for doing so. Warzone 2 handles Killstreaks very differently compared to Modern Warfare 2’s implementation of them. In multiplayer battles, players can build up a winning streak by racking up a certain number of kills or points. Streaks are lootable in battle royale matches, which led to players abusing the system and causing it to become less balanced.
Gamers would search for a medium or large bag and stuff it to the brim with killstreaks to increase their chances of winning. It was a living nightmare in final rings because there was nowhere to hide from the onslaught of kill streaks that fell from the sky. As part of the update for Season 2, Infinity Ward decided to remove the backpack system from the game after realizing its many drawbacks.
As a result of the fact that players may no longer stack killstreaks, they do not have the same impact as they once did. Conversely, an accident caused a WZ2 squad to meet their end at the hands of a killstreak, but not in the way you might anticipate.
Killstreak is an amusing way to eliminate people in Warzone 2
A user who plays Warzone 2 uploaded a video to Reddit with the caption, “I’m dying. Is he on a killing spree, or has he just had a string of terrible luck with map planes?”
In the footage, a group of people is flying a helicopter on Al Mazrah when an airplane suddenly flies in from a distance and kills everyone on the crew. Because of the plane’s incredible speed, the team wasn’t even aware that they had been attacked. The members of the community put on their best detective impressions and sought to figure out what caused the death.
In response, one of the players said, “I believe it was a precision airstrike.” I only caught a glimpse of it in the nick of time, and my immediate thought was, “Oh my god, that’s not going to.” A second player chimed in with, “Jesus, that was the funniest thing I’ve ever seen come from playing this game! I got really near a few times, but I always assumed the jets didn’t have a hitbox because of their size. Now I know.” Keep your eyes peeled and your ears open the next time you fly over Al Mazrah, whatever the reason may be.
