Quiz: How Well Do You Know Your Call of Duty Killstreaks?

Published

on

Killstreaks (or now scorestreaks) have been a mainstay in Call of Duty for over ten years. Modern Warfare’s legacy lives on today in Black Ops 4 and even spread to other franchises. The streak system gives players something personal to go for and get rewarded for skillful play.

So, you’ve played all of the Call of Duty games and you think you know all there is to know about killstreaks? Ok, let’s put that to the test. We’ve concocted a 15 question quiz about killstreaks from across all the Call of Duty titles.

Not every question is directly about a specific killstreak, but all questions contain some connection to killstreaks or killstreak usage. We wish you the best of luck on the quiz and remember, no cheating. We’ll publish a “final results” article with stats on how the community did as a whole next week.

Please feel free to tell us how you did in the comments or on Twitter at @CharlieIntel.

Fortnite Bloodsport Skin

Bloodsport is one of the characters starring in the new Suicide Squad movie, and Fortnite players will soon be able to get a new skin inspired by the DC Comics character.

One of the reasons Fortnite has become one of the most popular video games globally is the vast array of cosmetic items that players can acquire and use to customize their characters when playing.

The past year has seen Fortnite add a treasure trove of cosmetic items from the likes of Marvel and DC, with players having the ability to play as characters like Batman and Iron Man.

With the upcoming arrival of the new Suicide Squad movie in August, Epic Games recently revealed that one of the movie’s characters would be making his arrival in the fan-favorite game with the news that a Fortnite Bloodsport skin is officially coming very soon, and we have everything you need to know to get the Fortnite Bloodsport skin covered for you.

Epic Games took to the official Twitter account for the popular game and posted a trailer for the new Fortnite Bloodsport skin, and revealed that it would be arriving in the game’s item shop on August 3, 2021.

This new Fortnite Bloodsport skin will be released at 5 PM PST/ 7 PM CST/ 8 PM EST on August 3rd, so players will have to wait a little bit before they can add this Suicide Squad character to their collections.

An official price for the new Fortnite Bloodsport skin was not announced, but it likely is in the same range as other comic book character outfits added to the game recently. We will update this piece with the official price of this outfit when it is officially revealed to the community.

This particular version of the DC Comics character joins the Suicide Squad in the upcoming film after being imprisoned for injuring Superman with a Kryptonite bullet, so fans of villains will undoubtedly be excited to get their hands on this DC Comics outfit.

Following the exciting story and multiplayer reveal, the Halo developers have now released information on how you can be one of the first to experience the game through the Halo Infinite Technical Preview Beta.

After Halo Infinite‘s highly anticipated story and multiplayer reveal during E3, players are now more hyped than ever to get their hands on a new Halo experience.

For those who can’t wait to get to grips with Master Chief’s arrival on the next generation of consoles, here’s how you can enroll for the Halo Infinite Technical Preview Beta and experience the game early.

Halo Infinite Technical Preview Beta

Halo Infinite Technical Preview Beta

The Halo Infinite Technical Preview Beta will be a technical test for players outside of the 343 Industries studio to give the developers feedback and experience the game before it is launched to the public.

For those confused about what the Halo Infinite Technical Preview Beta is, this is what Microsoft calls their game’s beta tests.

The first Halo Infinite Technical Preview Beta will be starting on July 29, 2021, and will only be available to those who sign up for the Halo Insider Program on the halowaypoint website.

How to sign up

Signing up is simple. All you need to do is head over to the Halo Insider Program hub and click “Sign Up.” You will then be asked to sign in to your Xbox Live account. You also must be 18 years or older to participate in the tests.

You will be told that you will not be able to disclose any information from the tests, which includes any images or videos except when explicitly told it is okay to do so.

Further, you will be asked for personal details like your email, country, and time zone. You will then be asked which previous Halo games you have played, which ones are your favorite, and what kind of modes do you like the most.

The sign-up also requires you to state what platforms and controllers you own, what display settings you have, and what the audio setup is like. You can also opt into PC-specific beta tests on the Halo Insider sign-up page, and you’ll be asked to share your PC specifications and your Steam ID if you have one.

Halo Infinite Technical Preview Beta

However, not every single person will be invited to each Halo Infinite Technical Preview Beta. 343 Industries Community Director Brian Jarrard recently took to Twitter to give the community an inside look at how the participants for each of these tests are chosen which you can find in this Twitter thread.

Lastly, once you are all signed up, all you need to do is wait until you are called upon for a test. For more on Halo Infinite, stay tuned on Charlie INTEL.
