The Hellstorm Missile is a Scorestreak reward featured in Call of Duty: Black Ops II and returns in Call of Duty: Black Ops III and Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 as the Hellstorm[1].

Call of Duty: Black Ops IIEdit

The Hellstorm Missile requires a scorestreak of 700. It is similar to the Predator Missile from the Modern Warfare series, with the exception that the player can choose to either shoot a cluster of bombs, or use a single missile by not pressing the firing button, essentially making it perform like said killstreak.  

The missile uses the "aim" button to increase the speed of the missile (only before the cluster bomb is launched), and the 'fire' button to launch a random number of cluster bombs. Before shooting the cluster bomb, the missile will automatically lock on after a few seconds to enemies near the crosshair, and if the cluster bomb is launched, one bomb will be locked on to each targeted enemy. 

Although not very well known, the Hellstorm missile can be shot down and destroyed with a single well placed shot shot of any light arms that is, before the cluster bombs are deployed. Anti-Aircraft missiles and the Black Hat will be unable to damage it, lock on to it or destroy it however, even before the cluster bombs are deployed. [2]The Trophy System will automatically destroy all heavy projectiles including the Hellstorm missile itself, as it was designed to do with the exception of its cluster bombs.  

This Scorestreak is not recommended for use in Hardcore modes, as it is very easy to accidentally kill teammates, particularly if the cluster bomb is used.


Call of Duty: Black Ops IIIEdit

The Hellstorm, is a scorestreak featured in Call of Duty: Black Ops III. It requires a scorestreak of 800 to acquire. Similar to its predecessor, the missile can be split into multiple smaller missiles that lock onto enemy players. It can also be boosted before splitting. It is possible to lock on and destroy a Hellstorm missile with a launcher if it has not split yet.


Call of Duty: Black Ops IIEdit

  • No announcement will be made if a hostile Hellstorm Missile has been launched. Only friendly missiles are announced.
  • If two Hellstorm Missiles come into contact with each other, they will explode (does not matter if they are friendly or hostile).
  • If a UAV or other scorestreak happens to be just under the location of where the Hellstorm Missile is launched or about to land, the scorestreak can be destroyed.
