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.

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.

Call of Duty Elite Service Shuts Down on Friday

Later this week, on Friday, February 28, around 10am PST, Call of Duty Elite will officially be shut down, Activision confirmed. Elite was Activision’s service for tracking stats and progress in previous Call of Duty titles, but, after Friday, it is going to be replaced by the current Call of Duty app.

Elite was introduced back in 2011 alongside Infinity Ward’s Modern Warfare 3, launching as a service which let users track their playing stats, edit their loadouts, compete in challenges, and overall, enhance their multiplayer experience. While during its initial release Elite offered both a free and premium option, it later transitioned to a completely free service for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2.

With the announcement, Activision also released a FAQ explaining the details of the service’s termination.

“There are no plans to bring Call of Duty Elite back,” says Activision. “We encourage fans to download the Call of Duty app for Call of Duty: Ghosts, which allows players to customize their multiplayer character and weapons loadouts on the go, keep track of their Call of Duty: Ghosts stats, and features Call of Duty Clan Wars, where players can compete for cool, exclusive in-game gear.”

Furthermore, as a final goodbye to the service, Activision is offering two hours of Call of Duty: Ghosts Double XP to players who have logged into the service since January 1, 2014. According to the publisher, the Double XP will show up on your Call of Duty: Ghosts profile soon.
