Pointman Multiplayer Tips
Recommended for a Less Aggressive Gameplay
The Pointman Perk is best fit for players whose gameplay is not as aggressive. This highly benefits players who would rather do objectives and helping teammates rather than only earning kills.
Works Better in Specific Game Modes
Earning points is easier in game modes where there are objectives. Game modes like Hardpoint and Domination will give you tons of points by doing objectives.Check Out the Multiplayer Game Modes Here
Requires More Actions to Get Killstreaks
Since the Killstreaks will become score based, it requires more actions to unlock Killstreaks. For example, a 3-kill Killstreak is equal to 500 points with killing an enemy only giving 125 points.
