Call of Duty: WWII comes with a social hub dubbed Headquarters. You can use it to train and get better at multiplayer combat. And one of the most useful training areas is a tower where you can practice the Scorestreaks in the game.
Scorestreaks are the devastating attacks that you can unleash after shooting a bunch of enemies in a row. There are 15 different Scorestreaks, each progressively harder to earn in multiplayer. In fact, I know for a fact that I’m never going to achieve all of these Scorestreaks in multiplayer matches. So I enjoyed trying them out on the Headquarters beach. It’s almost like playing a mini-game in itself.
(Here’s our other coverage of Call of Duty: WWII).
You start out with the easy Scorestreaks, which aren’t as useful, like tossing Molotov cocktails or sending up a recon aircraft. The latter helps your teammates spot enemies more easily, but it really starts getting fun when you earn the Fighter Pilot or Glide Bomb as you can take out multiple enemies at once.
The big kahuna of Scorestreaks is the Ball Turret Gunner, where you can shoot a machine gun in a ball turret under the fuselage of a big bomber. It lasts long enough so that you can wipe out the entire enemy team.
Call of Duty: WWII is available on November 3 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The publisher provided GamesBeat with a copy of PS4 edition of the game for this review, and I attended a review event.
