Warzone players have perfect idea for new tactical killstreak

Call of Duty Warzone players have got a pretty perfect idea for a killstreak that could be added to the battle royale to put a little tactical twist on rotating through open spaces.

Since releasing back in March, Warzone has quickly cemented itself among other top battle royales like Fortnite and Apex Legends while keeping its Call of Duty roots with features like killstreaks.

Players were pretty wary about the introduction of killstreaks back in the early days, but since then, the airstrikes and UAVs have become a key cog in the march to victory. Though, the Cluster Strike can still be pretty annoying. 

As the streaks become increasingly more needed to win, players have been coming up with their own ideas for things they’d like to see added. Now, we may never see an AC-130 looming in the skies above Verdansk, but more tactical ideas could be ideal.

A more tactical killstreak is exactly what Reddit user ForDaysDoe has up their sleeve with the idea of a smoke barrage. What would it do you ask?

Well, it wouldn’t be like a gas grenade where it’s an offensive item that keeps enemies back, but more along the lines of a bigger smoke grenade. According to the Redditor, it could be purchasable for around $3,000/$3,500 depending on the size of the area that the smoke would cover.

By throwing it down and getting a huge cloud of smoke going, you could easily cut off angles that enemies may have taken to catch you rotating in the open.

Though, when you factor in potential balancing, it wouldn’t be too overpowered as a killstreak. Players could easily just bring back their thermal scopes. Plus, the huge cloud of smoke would give away their intentions pretty quickly. 

However, despite being a pretty ingenious idea, it’s unlikely that we see it in Verdansk. The devs are already full steam ahead, literally, on season five with the introduction of a train, new weapons, and a whole lot more.

How to get Flaming Pumpkin Head in Warzone & Modern Warfare

The Halloween Event in Modern Warfare & Warzone has brought in a whole bunch of new content for players to sink their teeth into — but one thing that players are chasing is the new Pumpkin Head and Flaming Pumpkin Head look.

As most uber-popular games do nowadays, Infinity Ward are capitalizing on the Halloween period with their own celebrations, including the Haunting in Verdansk Warzone event, new Operator packs with spooky skins and cosmetics and the Zombie Royale game mode.

With the new Trick or Treat rewards, you can also loot chests to find fun new blueprints, such as the Cleaver melee weapon that are exclusive to the Halloween event.

That said, the new Pumpkin Head style isn’t something you can pick up from the store or on your Battle Pass, and requires you to complete something in-game.

Killstreak for Flaming Pumpkin head

The Pumpkin Head comes in two variants — either its regular version or, if you’re good enough, it sets alight too, letting you run around with a Flaming Pumpkin Head as you decimate enemies in the game.

Unfortunately, though, it’s not something you can equip. If you want to adorn the Pumpkin Head in multiplayer, you have to go on a 3 killstreak.

If you want to go one up and have a Flaming Pumpkin Head, though, you have to actually go on a 10 killstreak, which is significantly harder than 3, but makes the pumpkin ever more impressive. You will, however, lose it upon death.

How to get the Pumpkin Head in Warzone

It’s worth noting that this doesn’t work the same in Warzone as it does in multiplayer. While many believe the pumpkin head can be earned through a 3 killstreak in Warzone, this isn’t actually true.

So far, it seems the only way to get the pumpkin head in Warzone is to pick up a juggernaut, which automatically comes with the head attached as standard during the Haunting of Verdansk event.

Of course, while players who come up against you and your lit pumpkin head will know that you’re evidently a good player, it does make you a lot easier to see, so beware as enemies make more of an effort to hunt you out and stop you from staying low-key, especially if you’re seeking even higher killstreaks.
