Unable to get killstreaks in Call of Duty Warzone? In most Call of Duty games, killstreaks are usually associated with rewards/support tools players receive upon killing enemies in a row. However, the rules aren’t the same for Warzone, which is basically a spin-off in the series. If you are unable to buy killstreaks or pick them up from the loot boxes, this article is for you!
Call of Duty Warzone is a free-to-play shooter of the battle royale genre. Now, being a part of the COD franchise will obviously bring popularity. The free-to-play feature is an added benefit for some. Warzone recently underwent an integration with Call of Duty Vanguard, leading to the addition of a lot of new content. A year back, Warzone was integrated with Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War, which led to similar content addition like new weapons, maps, modes, and more. However, many believe that focusing on ‘just Warzone’ would have been better for Warzone’s future than such integrations.
On the other hand, many fans believe that Warzone has become much better in terms of optimization and bugs after the integrations happened. Well, we believe that an online multiplayer game like Warzone will always have its share of bugs, regardless of content updates. What matters is the speed at which the developers take care of the issue.
