Death Streak Perks

New Death Streak Perks are the opposite of Kill Streaks: these give the player certain rewards for being killed a certain amount of times in a row without getting a kill. Once the Death Streak activates, it remains active until the user gets a kill, no matter how many times the user dies until they get that kill. Only one can be equipped to a class. Unlike other Perks, Death Streak Perks do not have Pro versions.

* Start - 4 deaths - Copycat: Copy the loadout (Weapons, Perks, and Attachments) of the enemy that killed you last.
* Lv. 6 - 3 deaths - Painkiller: Double health for ten seconds after respawn.
* Lv. 27 - 4 deaths - Martyrdom: Drop a live grenade when killed.
* Lv. 39 - 4 deaths - Final Stand: Crawl around on the ground with any weapon before dying; full recovery if no damage is taken for a certain amount of time.

Thanks I was wondering what 'One Man Army Pro" did. Which is dead sexy imo.
I agree I didn't know what it did before this. Also wasn't sure what Danger Close pro did.
