I use hardline on most of my classes too. In objective games liek Demo, Dom, Hardpoint etc. it's crazy how quick you can get scorestreaks. It just gives the most bang for your buck as a perk. I usually run Hardline and Engineer with UAV,HK and care package. You can stack this set up like crazy and engineer lets you re-roll the package. Hardline does help if you are running high streaks too though as many have mentioned above.

Actually, it doesn't take 20% off the Scorestreak, it ADDS 20% to scores you get, IIRC.

So if something would normally get you 100 points, you'll get 120 points, and so on.

The above is more accurate.

Thanks Gerbera.

Drift0r just uploaded a video today about it.

Brings up some points I wasn't aware of.  For instance, UAV, CUAV, VSAT, EMP assists DO NOT receive the extra 20% bonus.

That makes it even better then.  A kill at the point of capture (B flag or enemy flag) in domination gets you 400 points.  With hardline that makes it almost 500.

Yeah, and it also makes Hardline not really needed for lower tier Scorestreaks, but it REALLY makes a difference when it comes to getting the higher-tier Scorestreaks; lowering them by as many as 5+ kills alone.

Dam I am glad I finally asked this.  I just always went with it being 1 less kill, capture etc.  Your right though G it really adds up the higher streaks you have set.  Plus if your an objective whorre like me those points magnify even greater. 

This dam game anyway.  After checking or posting on the forums there is always something else that I cant wait to try and it gnaws at me until I can try it.

Lets just say a ruthless medal ( 15 kills without dying, with your gun) will get you a swarm with hardline equipped. This is assuming you don't get any assist points in between. if you get assist points then of course it will be less. Watch this vid, it explains it very well
