New Black Ops 2 X-Ray killstreak may cause big problems

Treyarch and Activision have managed to keep Black Ops 2 multiplayer a closely guarded secret for now, but one feature that has slipped out is the inclusion of a brand new ‘quadrotor’ drone killstreak that Treyarch teased on the Call of Duty website prior to its announcement.

While the idea of flying a drone with a camera and machine gun attached to it is rather exciting, we’ve heard details on another possible new killstreak that will be included in multiplayer as well. It comes in the form of an X-Ray ACOG scope that can be attached to your weapon and has several powerful features.

The first is obviously being able to see where the enemies are located, even when they are hiding behind cover. This would also be very useful in spotting campers around the map and with good communications – letting your whole team know where these guys are hiding. Secondly, we’re also hearing that this scope will give you the ability to shoot through walls, so once you have picked them out using X-Ray vision, you can kill them there and then if you wish to.

As you can imagine, this sounds like a very powerful killstreak indeed and could be overpowered if everyone is using them around the map at the same time. At the moment, this is just rumored information hinted at NowGamer and there is still some uncertain details on how long this killstreak will last for.

Is the X-Ray ACOG scope one of the early killstreaks unlocked for say 5 kills that will only last for less than a minute? Or is it one of the best killstreaks available that will be a permanent attachment to your weapon for the duration of the match? If this killstreak is put in the hands of a very good player, then all we’re gonna say is good luck because he or she is going to rack up a serious amount of kills.

What are your thoughts on this rumored X-Ray ACOG scope, does it sound overpowered to you or not? Would you prefer it to be a limited time killstreak or a permanent one for achieving say a killstreak of 15 kills? We’ll bring you more details as we get it.
