What is "kill streak bonus" on Battlelog?

On the first tab of your personal Battlelog ("Stats and Progression"), towards the bottom under "More Statistics," what does "kill streak bonus" mean?

If it says 20, does that mean my highest kill streak in a single game was 20?

Or does it mean I got 20 streak bonuses in a single game (seems awfully high so I'm gonna guess no)?

That number does not match the number of times I got the Combat Efficiency Ribbon.

Thanks in advance.

Side rant: I don't understand why game developers don't define all these things. Like WTF determines "Skill"? And they need an official reference so people know that the Javelin is only for land vehicles, but can be used for air vehicles in conjunction with the Soflam so people don't keep asking. I mean, I don't need hand holding, but when you join the military, they train you on these things so the least DICE could do is inform players about these things instead of having us figure it out. Would the military just throw a Javelin at a cadet and say, go get em kid? No. Lazy developers.

You have to get 8 kills in a row to get the combat effiency ribbon. If your killstreak continues u will recieve a ribbon for every 3 additional kills.

Example:8 kills - 1st ribbon
11 kills - 2nd ribbon
14 kills - 3rd ribbon n so on. i hope this clears it up. I have 120 of these n just realized how it works the other day.

Ok. Thanks! That's what I thought at first, but the word "bonus" confused me so I thought maybe it meant something else. Don't know why they didn't just use "kill streak"....

See? That's what I meant in my side rant. Things like these should be explained beforehand so we don't have to figure them out as we go. Doesn't matter how they do it as long as they do it, whether in-game, in the manual, or on their official website. Is that so much to ask? Apparently it is. Lol.

Does it really hurt that much to use your brain? For every one of these issues, I spent the energy to figure it out or do the research. I didn't beg others to spoon feed me answers. Lazy players

Nothing against those who ask genuine questions, but if you're going to insult the developers for not spelling everything out for you...SHAME

Because "kill streak bonus" really makes sense to you (vs "longest kill streak")? Ok then. Give yourself a pat on the back.

Because giving us an achievement to obtain all ribbons without even defining what each ribbon means makes sense? Ok then. I'm not saying they tell us exactly what to do. That's retarded hand holding. Least they could've done is say, "combat efficiency ribbon means XXX." If you followed this forum since before the game released, you would know that something as simple as what I suggested would've saved people a lot of questions, headaches, and time. (Again, I'm not saying we need hand holding though this is the internet and I know you or someone else will still say that despite my disclaimer so whatev....)

The damn ribbons in the in-game stats menu explain what you need to obtain each one...

Yes and no, I'm sure I'm not the only one who thought the motion spot ribbon was not explained well at all. I tried for 3 straight games using the T-ugs before I looked on here and saw it had to be the MAV.
