As with every Call of Duty title, scorestreaks are a fundamental aspect of the Multiplayer of Black Ops 4, and some can be very annoying and difficult to deal with.

Most good public match players will know how to set up their classes and adjust their gameplay in various situations so that they earn the most streaks they can during every match.

With how overpowered certain streaks can be in this game, and how well they stack on each other, matches can get one-sided in a hurry. 

Luckily, CoD expert YouTuber ‘TheXclusiveAce’ has come up tutorial video that breaks down and determines the best ways to go about destroying streaks in Black Ops 4.

The first thing he looks at is the Hellion Salvo launcher, which takes one rocket to destroy a UAV, CUAV, Drone Squad drone, Care Package chopper, tow rockets to destroy a Sentry, three to destroy a Sniper’s Nest and Attack Chopper, four for the Mantis, and five for the Strike Team deploy chopper and Gunship.

The launcher also has several attachments, such as Fast Lock, Rocket Cache, Fast Loader, and High Explosive, which only affects shooting at players and not streaks.

He then goes into some of the less obvious options, such as the FMJ II attachment on weapons. This specific attachment gives increased damage towards streaks, and according to the YouTuber, it provides a 3x multiplier to bullets when shooting at enemy streaks, except for the actual Strike Team soldiers.

 FMJ II can only currently be equipped on the Strife pistol, Cordite SMG, Rampart 17 AR, AUG DMR Tactical Rifle, Titan LMG, and Paladin sniper rifle. 

Out of all of those weapons, Ace makes it clear that the Paladin sniper rifle is the most powerful weapon against streaks with FMJ II, but it is not as versatile as the Titan when getting back into the regular combat of the game.

The final option he looks at are Specialist weapons, more specifically the Tempest’s shock rifle and Seraph’s Annihilator, both of which use up most of their ammo capacity when being used to destroy some of the higher level streaks.

The final topic he covers is Attack Chopper streak, since it is very powerful and commonly achieved during matches. 

He timed how long each of the weapons above take to to destroy the chopper, and the fastest option was the Annihilator, which took just over four seconds. Second came the Titan LMG at just under seven second, third was the Paladin at eight second, and the fourth was the Hellion Salvo at nine seconds.

Black Ops Cold War leaks reveal League Play mode returning

Reputable Call of Duty leaker ‘TheMW2Ghost’ has claimed that an in-game challenge in Black Ops Cold War shows that League Play will make a long-awaited return when the full game drops in November. 

Despite it’s immense popularity in Black Ops 2, League Play has not yet returned in a Call of Duty game. While we’ve seen many Ranked modes – Black Ops 3’s Arena or Black Ops 4’s World League Play – the fan-favorite competitive mode has not featured in some games, including 2019’s Modern Warfare.

However, recent leaks from TheMW2Ghost suggest that an in-game challenge, similar to the one that was completed on October 17 to earn an extra day of the open Beta, will make way to reveal a League Play mode in the full game.

Many consider Black Ops II League Play to be the best Ranked mode in Call of Duty history.

The leaker claimed that an in-game challenge, found in the files of Black Ops Cold War, is heavily indicative of a League Play mode featuring, either at launch or as post-launch content.

“There’s a Challenge in Black Ops Cold War which is for League Play,” they tweeted. “WTF, some weird/cool challenges for Zombies too.” 

While this is not confirmed – or even unlocked – at the time of writing, the very reference to League Play in the game’s files is very good news for fans of the competitive mode.

It’s worth encouraging a degree of caution though. Past Call of Duty games have had Ranked modes confirmed as coming post-launch, only for the mode to never materialise. A number of CoD games, such as 2019’s Modern Warfare, have settled for a Call of Duty League playlist, rather than a fully fledged Ranked mode.

Back in early October, David Vonderhaar was asked about the possibility of a Ranked Play mode. He responded: “Have you seen a Black Ops game without a competitive agenda?”

What League Play would mean for SBMM is also up in the air. Many have criticized the seemingly high levels of skill-based matchmaking in the Beta, but believe a Ranked playlist could mean that SBMM is reduced in public matches. We’ll have to wait and see on all fronts.
