Really the hard part is getting to the Harriers, but I don't really try to get them. If it happens great, but I will not sacrifice points to go after it. I play to win in Domination!!! I think it worked out for me in this case because the whole team except one guy went to B. I was basically at A by myself and they were coming from C to A.
I don't know if you have ever gotten one, but you should try Eric. You are much better at getting KS than me. You probably get 10 AC-130s to my 1. You figure you are at worst 14 kills away when you start your AC-130. If you do try let us know so we can protect you. I got lucky as they started spawning behind the Satellite Dish (I was in the building behind A) and got a multi-kill before they could get inside and kill me. Playing GW really helped, more dudes to rain hell down on!
I'd be lying if I said that I didn't want to get a nuke or 10 lol, but it really was never a priority. I've played many matches where I got 7 kills without kill streaks, but had the typical 5-7-11 kill streak set up. I've equipped the 7-11-25 kill streak a few times, but doing so changes the way I play. The ideal way is to set it and forget it so that you don't really focus on it. As jitu said, more often than not you get the nuke when you aren't trying to. Maybe I'll try it, but I don't want to use noob tube, danger close (jab, jab - sorry jitu lol) to get it. In all seriousness, although jitu has used that setup to try for nukes I know that he has earned them with other classes.
The first time you tried it and went 17-0 and had the chopper gunner up I thought you were going to get it. On the map I notice jitu was with you, but wasn't sure if he was helping you out or trying to get a nuke himself.
