Spy Plane Scorestreak Multiplayer Tips
When activated, the Spy Plane will regularly pulse the map, revealing the enemy's positions for you and your team as red dots. Pulses happen at set intervals and the Spy Plane will leave & stop operating after around 2~3 minutes have passed.
Pulses Reveal Enemy's Last Location
Your Spy Plane reveals the enemy team's last known location when it pulses the map. This is why the markers on the minimap are static. Be careful when approaching the area as the enemy may have moved away.
Can Be Countered Or Destroyed
The Spy Plane can easily be countered by other Killstreaks such as the Counter Spy Plane or Air Patrol. It can also be destroyed by enemies that use anti-air weapons. 1 shot of the Cigma 2 Launcher will scrap one.
Use After Teammate's Spy Plane Expires
It is recommended to use Spy Plane if your team does not have an active one on the air. However if your team already has an active Spy Plane, wait for it to expire or get destroyed before deploying your own. Unless, the enemy has high volume of anti-air fire and you want to saturate the battlefield for max coverage.
Wait For Enemy Counter Spyplane To Expire
Before deploying your Spyplane, check your minimap to see if it's scrambled. If it is, this means that an enemy has deployed a Counter Spy Plane. Wait for your minimap to get unscrambled before deploying the Spy Plane to maximize its duration.
What Are Scorestreaks (Killstreaks)?
On-Call Powerups & Abilities
Getting a number of kills and earning scores rewards your efforts by allowing you to use Scorestreaks. These are special abilities that you can "call" to aid you and your team on the battlefield. Some of them require direct control while some just need to be activated for them to take effect.
Scores Don't Disappear When Killed
Progress to get a Scorestreak do not disappear when you get killed. Unlike Killstreaks in previous COD titles that require you to chain multiple kills, holding objectives and other actions rewards you by filling your Scorestreak meter. Work with your team and do objectives in order to get to higher Scorestreaks!
Combo For Higher Scores
Chaining kills and doing objectives in a short period of time rewards you with a score multiplier. Score multipliers significantly increase the scores that you gain, giving you a better chance of getting those high-score Scorestreaks!
Unused Scorestreak Are Retained Even If The Player Dies
An unused Scorestreak will be retained even if the player is killed. It will be immediately available for use once you respawn. Save scorestreaks for the right timing to maximize their effects and turn the tides of battle!
