Call of Duty: Warzone UAV killstreak

Infinity Ward brought in a plethora of new features to their battle royales when they launched Call of Duty: Warzone. The developers changed up how you can respawn, the way you drop into a match, and even added an in-game economy. One of the craziest changes made in Warzone, though, is the addition of killstreaks. These have been in Call of Duty since the original Modern Warfare, but they work much differently in the battle royale.

Up until recently, however, no one knew the extent of how different the killstreaks are. One party of popular streamers discovered yesterday that the UAV killstreak is one of the aspects that’s been altered the most.

UAVs prove overpowered in Warzone

Like all killstreaks, you can purchase UAVs at Buy Stations. These are scattered all around the map of Verdansk and contain a variety of different items to help you in your match. The items are bought with Cash, which is found lying on the ground as regular loot.

There are four total killstreaks in Warzone as of right now: the UAV, Precision Airstrike, Cluster Strike, and Shield Turret. The most expensive of these is the UAV, coming in at $4,000. It’s because of this price that some fans are staying away from the streak.

However, popular streamer Jack “CouRage” Dunlop shows off why you may want to start investing in UAVs.

As evidenced by the video, if you and your two other teammates call in three separate UAVs, they expose every enemy’s location on the Warzone map. Longtime Call of Duty fans will recognize this mechanic as the Blackbird, V-SAT, Advanced UAV, etc.

Obviously, this makes the UAV killstreak much more valuable than it was before. If you and your teammates have some Cash to burn, using three UAVs could singlehandedly win you a match of Warzone. Of course, it’s still up to you to hit your shots.

Will you be using the UAV now? Let us know, and keep up with Daily Esports for all of your Warzone news.
