I always hated it when you got ammo in your care package, I'll get ammo using scavenger.  They fixed that in MW3 when they took ammo off.  So it's back in Black Ops 2 ey!  They better take it off again in MW4 next year.  If it is still there well... oh well I'll still be buying CoD the best selling game on the planet.

I have the best luck with CPs. I always manage to chance a UAV into a RC-XD

I do have a friend though that calls out what he gets before they even drop. It's quite scary just how good he is at it. To make things even more impressive gets Dogs, VTOL, or SWARM at least once a day out of it

I love when people complain about care packages. It's a 5 killstreak maybe less depending on the game mode, why would you expect a top end streak with any regularity? My advice, actually earn your killstreaks instead of expecting a magical box to give you a swarm

I have pretty good luck with CPs ....it seems i get war or death machines the most .......which if i am in a party i will tell my team mates they are welcome to get....i have had no luck (Skill) using either of the two.... I have gotten just about every scorestreak from Cps except the K9 unit ....But i have only seen the K9 units used  twice ......my favorite it the swarm of hunterkillers  i get it about 10% of the time....

But I do think Cps can be over rewarding ......I think the cps that a player gets should be tied to his/her  actual biggest earned score streak .....If i have never earned that scorestreak the hardway .......then it should not come in a care package

Think about it  a guy has never got a scorestreak above a care package ......throws out his cp greande and gets a empty care package inside his CP LOL

Also what I have noticed is that on a day you keep getting the same thing when you re-roll it using Engineer. Is that how it's supposed to be? Sometimes I get only UAVs then other times I get only Lightning Strikes.

I didn't want to start a new thread for this so hopefully it'll get answered in here.

I like destroying incoming care package helicopters.  What I don't know is does No Tip actually destroy the care package?  It seems like it could if you hit the copter before the care package is released.  Or is the care package destroyed at any time in it's drop to the ground?

I have never seen a Care Package destroyed...just the chopper ....however it does seem like if the chopper is destroyed  the CP will only contain a UAV.......i may be wrong but my team mates all say it seems like if the bird is shot down  UAV are in the box ......but it might just be a fluke

As you shouldn't be able to get high scorestreaks from a care package, I mean if you're decent you can get a care package playing with one hand tied behind your back and when a swarm or something high like that is the scorestreak it can completely change a game depending on the game mode, if care packages where worth more points I'd understand but since they're not I think it would be completely reasonable to have the stealth chopper as the highest scorestreak
