Making new game mechanics, old again.
A return to form in many ways for the long running shooter series, Call of Duty: WW2 has had the larger shooter communities attentions for the past few days since it launched. One of the bigger mysteries for the return to the second World War was how the game would adapt features from the modern set games into an older setting.
Streamer PwnStarz uncovered at least one of these mysteries on stream, gaining a 25 kill streak without dying and allowing himself to trigger the V2 Rocket scorestreak, which stands in for the Nuke Scorestreak from past games. The Nuke would automatically end matches in favour of the team who called it, but it only appeared for those truly dominating like PwnStarz.
The V2 Rocket, historically a retaliation weapon of the Nazis and the first long-range guided ballistic missile, isn’t quite as deadly as the nuke, PwnStarz highlight shows that the game ends by score limit from the missile killing everyone on the map instead, but it’s still doing to job of hurrying along a match where other players are getting hopelessly mauled.
