- "Turn your killstreaks into scorestreaks."
- — Create-A-Class description
Pointman is a Tier 2 perk in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. It changes the user's killstreaks (except the Tactical Nuke) into scorestreaks, and is unlocked at level 49. While this does increase the number of kills required to get a streak, the ability to earn points for assists (including UAV, Counter-UAV, and Advanced UAV assists), objectives, destroying equipment and killstreak kills gives the player more ways to obtain streaks, and usually get them quicker.
The points obtained were increased with the 1.14.0 update, possibly to make the perk more attractive for objective players.
