All New Strike Packages: Killstreaks have been redesigned to reward different play styles and skill levels through unique Strike Packages. Completing game mode objectives now counts towards your Pointstreak progression. For the first time ever, kills are not the only way to earn Pointstreaks.
This also allows Pointstreaks to cater to more unique play-styles:
Assault Strike Package Pointstreaks within this package chain and are designed for more direct damage (Predator, helicopter), just like in Call of Duty : Modern Warfare 2. Your streak resets on death.
Support Strike Package Pointstreaks within this package do not chain. However, streaks do not reset on death. Streaks are more support oriented (UAV, Counter UAV, SAM turret)
Specialist Strike Package Pointstreaks designed for the expert players. Rewards come in the form of additional perks. A player activates additional Perks as they progress in a Pointsreak. These perks last until death.
