Chaos mode is a horde-style survival mode in which players fight off unlimited waves of enemies with the mission to last the longest amount of rounds as possible. The mode was first introduced in Modern Warfare 3 as a Special Ops game mode variant.

At this time, no patch notes have been released. Stay tuned as this post will be updated when the patch notes become available.

Hot Fix For Ghosts Changes Pointsteaks to “Promote Objective Play”

Infinity Ward introduced a hot fix update to Call of Duty: Ghosts on all platforms changing the way players can earn pointstreaks by “promoting objective play” in Domination, Kill Confirmed, and Grind multiplayer modes.

ghosts hardened

For the most part, points towards killstreaks are earned simply by racking up consecutive kills, or being the first player to capture a point, for example. After today’s update, however, players will be able to earn points for completing for more different actions performed in-game. Every time a player captures a point in Domination, regardless of being the first one or not, will get rewarded with points toward their killstreaks. Additionally, players will now get rewarded for confirming tags in Kill Confirmed.

Treyarch implemented a system called Scorestreaks in Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, where the players earned a score towards their next killstreak by playing the objective, assisting the team with a UAV, or by performing other actions, not just by accumulating consecutive kills. Infinity Ward seems to be using a similar system with the recent update, the details of which can be seen below.

Hotfix: Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and PC.

Added killstreak point rewards for KC, DOM and Grind game types to promote objective play:

  • KC: Half point rewarded for collecting tags.
  • DOM: Half point rewarded for changing a flag to Neutral, and another half point from neutral to Captured.
  • Grind: Half point rewarded for each tag banked.
