Killstreaks have been transformed into Pointstreaks, now rewarding players both for landing kills and completing objectives. Additionally, they have been broken up into three different categories, known as Strike Packages:
Pointstreaks within this package chain together and deal direct damage. It includes classics like the Predator Missile and Attack Helicopter. Your streak resets on death.
Pointstreaks within this package do not chain, focusing instead on surveillance and disruption. Your streak does not reset on death.
Pointstreaks within this package are designed for advanced players. Rewards come in the form of additional perks for optimal performance. These perks last until death.
