The absolute best scorstreak chain IMO.

RAMBONER

I put down a 77-3 KC on slums last night and had a 83-9 KC on hijacked the other night all thanks to the Stealth chopper/escort drone/warthog combo.  It is ridiculous how powerfull and attainable this chain is and I am not a great player.  Once you hit your stealth chopper you are almost guaranteed to get the next two which dam near wraps back to the stealth again.  They almost cannot shoot your stealth down with the other two going unless you are camping away from their spawn.  I know that getting the highest streaks is fun but points wise you can almost get your second stealth by the time you would get your a swarm and you can nearly have all 3 in the score it takes to get that vsat.  Plus if you RnG that escort drone is amazing.  I actually went what seemed like forever without firing my weapon while the points from kills and teammates confirming kills poured in.  It does speak to a different problem with scorestreaks stacking but that is how they made the game so.......

 

I know blind eye would cancel two of them out but I guess most players do not equip it.  If you havnt ran this combo you should try it.

    If it was me, I'd probably drop the Warthog & add in either the VSAT or EMP Systems instead.  It varies a lot depending on map, but the Hog has just sucked for me so far and I can't wait to finish the 50 kills so I can stop using it.  I'm lucky if I get 4 kills right now after calling it in twice in a single (Ground War) game.

     

    The VSAT is always a nice help for your teammates and will net you a good amount of points (between the assists & whatever kills you get because of it...or deaths you avoid).  EMP Systems also nets you assist points, and makes it much more difficult for your opponents to find and shoot down your Stealth Chopper and Escort Drone (the achilles heel of that combo is a single opponent running a Mk 48 w/FMJ and Blind Eye setup...he can have both streaks shot down with one clip if his aim is good).

    Nah CUAV, VSAT, EMP

     

    Save the CUAV for when you start getting close and ride the free points and blind enemies up to the VSAT. Once you have that it shouldn't be hard to get the EMP and when you do the enemy doesn't know what to do with themselves and you basically are picking off morons for the next 60sec.

     

    If you want lethality, I like the Stealth Chopper, VSAT, Lodestar. Only thing is some maps don't provide good layouts for airsupport. So I like the support chains better. It benefits the whole team and you really can't go wrong with the VSAT

    Personally, I am a fan of the UAV, Care Package, Sentry Gun. I constantly get through that score streak 2 times without dying and I've had games where I've gotten 3-4 sentry guns up and running at 1 time. I managed to single handedly get a sentry gun up on each flag in matches of domination. In objective based game modes like Domination, the Sentry Guns are king. You can almost sit back and watch the kills begin to pile up.

      Then you are luckier than I. Currently i am trying to complete a challenge (get 25 kills while controlling a sentury gun) and its next to impossible when one measly throw of a EMP anywhere on the map  will destroy it. I have tried placing trophy systems but EMPs destroy those too if its out of its range.

    Thats a good point harv.  Seemed like my streaks stayed in the air until they were done the other team were not as smart as us haaaa....  My teammates were running like mad men picking up tags and catching the guys with launchers looking up.  It was the whole "when all kinds of bad **** goes good" haa.....

     

    I have yet to try the vsat emp combo.  Spankhiccup posted that the other day and it sounds cool plus it is a great "teammate" set up. 

     

    On the Warthog it is definately hit and miss but seems like it coupled with the choppers is really good since it can knock those "launcher guys" off.

    Last night, I had two games in a row of 89-3 and 88-3 simply for using the VSAT, Dogs, Swarm combo which I've used for a good while now.  By the time the swarm and dogs are done, you are close to getting a VSAT again (at least that is the case with me), at which point you can do it all over again.  Not sure if I'll give that combo up unless I get bored and want to do something else...

      Dude after reading this I had to give the stealth/escort copter combo a try (I can't bring myself to give up the HK) ran it in KC and it dragged in the kills the escort drone seems to act as a 7th team member and saved my reckless hide a couple of times it even lead to me finally nailing the brutal medal and my best round yet I ended up 80-3.

      I have to agree the stealth/escort combo is definitely one of the better offensive scorestreak combos and if you have anymore streak/ weapon combos i'm all ears .

    I use to do that. Stealth chopper,warthog and lodestar. Or if the map didnt have space for me to cover i would replace warthog with escot while I am using the lodestar.

    I'll take the escort of over the stealth chopper..

     

    Btw i find it funny the game announces " enemy stealth chopper inbound"

     

    Not a very stealthy chopper

    I rarely go for high scorestreaks; if I do, it's usually UAV-CUAV-insert favorite here.  That's usually the only way I can get to one.  The way I play the game just makes it really difficult to string high scorestreaks together.

    Best scorestreak chain IMO is orbital Vsat k9 Swarm. orbital vsat helps to get ur k9 and swarm and your next vsat again

    UAV, CUAV and VSAT or VSAT, EMP and any high killstreak of your choice

    Glad you liked that Monkeylord. 

    Obviously dogs swarm are the strongest there is no argument about that.  The difference is if I get on a roll with the stealth, escort, warthog I can wrap them almost two times to the one dog, swarm combo.  That for me is what sets it apart.  I am also the kind of player (touch above average) who only gets the swarm once in awhile and have yet to get a swarm when I also have dogs. 

    I did that 77-3 with barely getting any gun kills once I got my first set up.  The second place guy on my team had 13 kills and a ton of confirms as did the rest.  The points were just rolling in.

    @monkey.  Thats why I love the stealth escort combo.  The escort gets that guy whos in a corner waiting for you and it also takes those guys out who are using launchers to try and take out your stealth chopper. 

    Again the dogs, swarm is the most powerfull but I rarely get killed by dogs and can already have my second set of streaks on the way by the time I would have reached my first dogs.

    Been trying out the stealth chopper/escort drone/emp(vsat) one and I have to say it is all about the map. I got into slums dom getting my chain very fast (1 min into the game) And those choppers + emp completly destoyed the other team while sitting at the fountain at B. When the chain ended I was like 100-150 points off the stealth chopper again and got killed from behind because my team rushed their base. Went 36-2 in 2-3 mins

    OP is right, if any of you guys out there have not tried it yet... You should... Grant it its difficult to get it, but when you do all that waiting is worth it. Though honostly I've only got it once (Meltdown LMG, lockdown center, legit Stealth and Warthog but escort from care package lol), but normally I'll float Care Package(for a mixed bag of goodies),Stealth/AGR then Warthog... I snipe so that low "Care" comes in handy... ;)

    Hellstorm,stealth chopper and lodestar work well for me although i sometimes use counter uav instead of hellstorm as i save them for that annoying enemy VSAT.

  • Re: The absolute best scorstreak chain IMO.

    Yeah if you can do it fast enough I like vgol, k9, swarm. Went on a 23 killstreak before even using one killstreak. And used swarm and k9 at same  time. And put my vtol up got the setup 3 times before game reached 50. But it sucked cause I was 102.1 and got booted cause of rage quitters. But I like. (Stealth, vsat, warthog.

  • Re: The absolute best scorstreak chain IMO.

    wish i could use the high score streaks. too many times i'll be on a roll and the enemy will spawn right behind me and or an enemy will be behind me with teammates around and i'll get killed while the dumbasses stand there.

     

    i just use care package and hope for the best.

    Sentry,VSAT,VTOL

     

    Sentry- 4-10 kills every time

    VSAT- 10+ kills, tons of assist

    VTOL- 15 kills minimum

     

    This will usuallty get you back to Sentry or 1-2 kills from it.

      You're not lying now are you?

      So actually youaverage 1,78 kills per sentry

      and 14,76 with the VTOL

      I don't get it why you feel the need to lie, are you trying to be "impressive" because you're not.

    High score streaks are for campers and laggers, and anyone who gets them in my game better hope I'm not host.

    I like the UAV-CUAV-Lightning Strike sometimes switch it up to VSAT instead of the Lightning, but sometimes I also run with VSAT-dogs-Swarm, I need to try that setup like other people said in one kill or cap you get almost all three of them.

     

    BTW for some reason my K9 don't get me a lot of kills, it averages about 5 every time I get unlike the swarm which always get's me 10+ kills, even the Lodestar and VTOL get me more kills than the K9 unit....

    The warthog sucks, it really sucks.

    fatboyhurst

    It must be where i am from (uk) but rarely i run into a game where i find players achieving these high kill streaks

     

    If a stealth chopper appears against me, i change class and its gone with me dying just once (2 black hats and its down)

    I actuallt took down a warthog in the rare time i saw it

     

    I suck at acheiving the high kill streaks, as i am average at best

    I once ran with AGR and it was took out with me not even getting 1 kill (2 emp's)

    UAV-CP-Lightining strike.when playing HQ.

     

    can get them pretty much each HQ point.

     

    UAV-VSAT-map depandable when playing pretty much anything else.

    most scorestreaks dont work on me other then Vsat so not running that when playing against me will make you turn into a very pissed player lol.
