    RIP Killstreaks (via http://www.theverge.com/gaming/2012/8/14/3239603/call-of-duty-black-ops-2-multiplayer-custom-classes-perks-scorestreaks)
    In another change, albeit one slightly more subtle, the Killstreaks of the original Black Ops have been replaced by Score Streaks in Black Ops 2. Instead of doling out rewards like care packages and air strikes for racking up consecutive kills without dying, players will accrue points for both killing enemies and completing game mode objectives.

    "We want to reward players who are helping their team win the game mode, not just the game." A normal kill in Black Ops 2 awards players 100 points. Grabbing an enemy flag in Capture The Flag mode also nets 100 points, whereas a flag capture awards 150. Making a kill while carrying the flag awards a hefty 200 points. As those points add up, players accumulate Score Streak rewards. So, when a player's score reaches 375 they can call in a UAV. At 500 points, they can request a Lightning Strike attack. At 1275 points, Treyarch's trademark attack dogs become available.

    Certain Score Streaks can add even more points to your score. While your UAV is active, for example, you'll get a 25 point bonus for every kill your teammates make. Those assist points can quickly add up to Score Streaks far deadlier.

    Treyarch's Vonderhaar says the adoption of Score Streaks was designed to encourage "desirable gameplay behavior," whether it be securing territories in Domination, placing microwave emitter sentries to block routes, or calling in a UAV.

    Treyarch's made some changes to the way players use their streak rewards, with new interaction states and swap in, swap out control of certain combat vehicles like the AGR (Autonomous Ground Robot), the mechanized killing machine that looks like a pint-sized ED-209. At any time, players can whip out a control pad for their AGR, assume control, kill a few enemies, then relinquish control back to the AI.

    Other examples of streak reward interaction provided by Treyarch include the option to instruct an AI-controlled pilot to relocate to another position on the map and the option to burst fire a Hellstorm Missile attack mid-drop, either to spread the destruction over a larger area or concentrate it in a tight cluster.

    Black Ops 2 will boast about 20 Score Streaks, including Swarm, seen in the game's premiere multiplayer trailer. Swarm fills the skies with Hunter Killer drones that attack enemies and equipment in a "morale destroying swarm."

    Wow, sounds like Trey is gonna completely change the MP we're use to. (that's a good thing too)

    I like the score streak, encourages more people to play objectively.

    Graphics look like its a MW 3.5

    Or, "fast hands"? I'm sure that's a quick reload type thing too...

    Damn... CoD... In High School you was the man homie...

    This shit would look like a fun mediocre Halo spin-off. I am looking at it in 'scust because I remember the feel it used to have. Call of Duty 4 - GOAT.

    not sure to be honest. I'll have to play them to tell if they're a pain the ass, too camper-friendly, etc.

    @ThulsaDoom

    Pretty crazy they're coming out with drones equipped with cameras and possibly weaponry and CoD mirrors it with killstreaks.

    Black Ops 2 Multiplayer Live stream Watch live video from treyarch on www.twitch.tv

    The game does not look like a must have, after watching the livestream. Just my opinion though.

    BTW they are doing one the next 2 mornings.

    @kanggoodie I think there is a perk to stack aircraft streaks, something like aviator, heard about it months ago, so it could have been speculation.
