Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War had a Scorestreak system, which Jev said was one of the “biggest issues” in the game.

The YouTuber said, “In Cold War, it was pretty bad because it was a scorestreak system, but it didn’t matter if you died. You got a multiplayer the longer you stayed alive, and even the worst of the worst payer would get a VSAT or a blackbird.”

Despite Cold War’s shortcomings, Jev believes that Scorestreaks are the better overall system.

Jev claimed, “Killstreaks tend to result in people camping because your life matters a little more than Scorestreaks. The Scorestreak system rewards you for playing objectives that count toward your streaks.”

The YouTuber noted that Modern Warfare 2019 favored “campers” at launch because of the Kill Streak system.

Scorestreak fans will likely have to wait until Call of Duty 2024 in hopes of their preferred streak system returning to the franchise.
