It acts similarly to the Reaper from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, though in Call of Duty: Black Ops II, the Lodestar can shoot an unlimited ammout of missiles with a 45 second time limit. The missiles travel faster and have a greater blast radius to compensate. This results in a more effective Scorestreak as it can kill more players in a shorter amount of time. This Scorestreak requires three lock-on launcher shots or Black Hat hits to destroy.
This Scorestreak can easily control the map and can alter the course of the game greatly. The spawn protection game does not deter the missiles' damage and the enemies still show up in a bright color just without the red squares. Although difficult to control, the Lodestar's missile can change course at the last minute if the Lodestar is locked onto by a launcher.
As part of patch 1.06, the Lodestar's missiles travel slower and have a reduced blast radius.
- The Lodestar was previously known as X-47 Pegasus.
- The imaging camera is in infrared, rather than enhanced optics similar to other Scorestreaks.
