    I hate when some noobish camper gets a care package and completely changes the course of the match because he gets either a osprey/pavelow/ac-130.

    I think they need to the nerf the awesomeness that are dropped in care packages. No, I don't think they just give out UAVs for every care package but i think a system could make it better.

    Heres my idea.
    -Care packages earned with 10 kills or less (chances of higher assault drops like AC-130 and Osprey are low say 1/10)

    -Care packages earned after 10 kills (say earning one at 12-4) the odds of a beast drop is greater.

    -Having care packages take longer to receive (not too long maybe 5 seconds longer)



    I just think that if you get a care package with less than 10 kills you can only get a assault package that is 1-10 and if you earn one past getting 10 kills you get the higher rewards like pave lows and juggernaughts.

    The problem you described is NOT the care pack ,more like the "rushers" on your team who let a camper get them 4-5 times in a row .
    Or maybe your'e saying that he got the whole team at once , called in a care pack and that brave action changed the course of life sorry the match...
    most real noobs won't even know how to work ac or osprey properly (due to lack of practice)!
    The problem begins when experienced players behave like noobs!

    Yeah, this is true.

    Yesterday I was having a stinker of a first game and was 0-4 before getting 4 kills with hardline on for a CP. Got an osprey gunner in it, finished the game 28-5, with at least 15 osprey kills.

    That shits crazy. Fair enough if its once in a blue moon, but I swear they are calibrated so you get a better killstreak the worse your score is.

    I think you're all mental.

    The care package is the most rounded killstreak there is. It's totally random, it's the luck of the draw. Sometimes you'll get a UAV, sometimes an AC-130. Here, look at the stats:

    UAV 10%
    IMS 20%
    Sentry Gun 20%
    Predator Missile 20%
    Precision Airstrike 7%
    Attack Helicopter 5%
    Strafe Run 3%
    Reaper 3%
    AH-6 Overwatch 3%
    Assault Drone 3%
    Pave Low 2%
    AC-130 2%
    Juggernaut 1%
    Osprey Gunner 1%

    They are the chances of pulling it out the bag.

    The carepackage is mighty nice sometimes... but I wouldn't go as far as to say it needs to be nerfed.

    Think of it as a roulette table with 100 slots - 20 of those slots are a sentry gun, 20 and IMS, 1 being osprey gunner, etc etc.

    That's how it works.

    I must be one lucky son of a bitch then, I definitely get the higher killstreaks more often than the lower ones.

    Good stuff ^^

    I think we remember the ones more like AC130 and OG etc because they're the rarer ones to get and it's like "FUCK YEAH LOOK WHAT I GOT FOR 3/4 KILLS" :D

    No, honestly I very rarely get less than an attack chopper. I think maybe once a night I will get a UAV/IMS, I will get a couple of sentry guns and the rest will all be a random pick of the rest.

    I think those stats are correct..
    How many games have I had where I get 5 IMS's/sentry guns/preds in a row?
    and they are not OP, grab a stinger with blind eye, bye bye Osprey.
    I did get a Jugg in a cp yesterday which resulted in a 25 killstreak trolololl

    Pft. I use it in HC S&D with my Hardline Pro Flash Bang spam and I ALWAYS either get an IMS or a UAV. Stupid thing. I feel like every time it gets stuck on the roof or outside the map, you get something really good and the game is just trolling you. I got a Pavelow once on Dome...but it somehow hit the dome roof on defense and rolled off the map. Stupid.

    No I don't think they do.

    I think the kills count in the same way as pred missile/attack heli/sentry gun kills... They are seens as killstreak kills and not gun kills.

    So you can't earn a MOAB when using a Support Jugg for example.

    Thus the likelyhood of getting something worse than you would have otherwise is a mere 10%, compared to Black Ops which was 35%. The Care Package is meant to be a gamble.

    Here's a match where I got a Reaper, Chopper Gunner & AC-130 out of 3 consecutive Care Packages:

    Haha and here I thought this thread was going to be about nerfing the "bouncy"-ness of carepackages (haha kidding)

    No...but seriously....why do some bounce and fly like crazy when they land on FLAT surfaces?! I cant help but legitimately laugh when I get killed by the ridiculousness of the bounce.

    The ones that bounce have little things in them like sentry guns, while the others that don't bounce have heavier things like AC-130s or Pavelows in them.

    lol @ this ^


    As for the topic, people have been complaining about this since MW2. Imo, shit happens. Yes it is cheap to get a AC 130 with 4 kills, but most of the time it is just a pred or something. However, I do think they should have kept Ammo as an option.

    Completely agree, I only ever run scavenger while running specialist but for the times I don't its so annoying trying to find a gun on the map, often I will die bc of that. Even if I cant use the ammo, I am sure its helpful for a teammate, if not good enemy bait.

    Considering most people can do not use AC-130s effectively, Pavelows and Osprey Gunners get shot down immediately, Juggs are flash/semtex magnets, and the fact that I run blind eye on open maps I don't really get bothered by this.

    But, it is just another example of IW being a bunch of communist douches. They obviously designed their game after reading Marx, or they wouldn't have death streaks, support, care packages etc.

    if u let something from the sky kill you more than once.... kill yourself in real life, you deserve it. as said before blind eye stinger... most things down in an instant. for ospreys or ac130s ask a team mate to do the same.

    I completely ran out of bullets (PP90 w/ extended mags and Mp9 w/ extended mags) and i got a throwing knife kill. Aparently there is a title for getting a throwing knife kill after completely running out of bullets.

    How random.
