nope. RC bomb car, care package and a dragon fire(or whatever the little rc helicopters are called....) all with the hard line perk

@living4theday258: Yeh, i was getting too cocky after getting it on my first try. Haven't had it since. Back to UAV, Paper Plane and Care Package.

I miss the sound of fear though

I understand a lot of the kill streaks are meant to be so powerful that they are rare to obtain, but the second half of the list, basically anything past 1200 points seems pointless to even take. Sure you might get it once in a blue moon, but then you're missing out on numerous lightning strikes or something cheaper during the streaks you couldnt get the big one.

Care package is really the only time I ever see anything past lightning strike, for me or anyone else.

I just tend to take higher level killstreaks (outside of UAV) just because I hate having to deal with them, and I'd rather have the rare treat of a warthog or a gunship than having to constantly crouch, pull out my laptop, and fiddle with it for a few seconds. Just a preference thing.

You actually bring up a good point that I somehow never thought of. I use the VTOL Warship and get it maybe once or twice every 2-3 hours, but might drop my last score streak down to something easier to get to rack up more kills. Not sure why I felt the need to quote you, hahah, but it's a simple thought that never crossed my mind. Probably because the VTOL is so damn rad to use! I generally get about 10 kills with it each time.

As for the original question, haven't used the Warthog. It sounds awesome, but somebody used it during a match and didn't get in kills with it, so I've never used it.

EDIT: I use UAV, Lightning Strike (which is awesome) and VTOL Warship

I use UAV, hunter killer drone, and care package because I know I can get them multiple times every game. The care packages in this game are awesome, you get something good pretty much every time unlike BLOPS 1 where it was usually just ammo or a UAV.
