Every Killstreak in Modern Warfare 2: VTOL, Chopper Gunner, Juggernaut
Modern Warfare 2 will introduce a new set of Killstreaks for multiplayer fans to enjoy. Here’s a look at every Killstreak available to players in Modern Warfare 2.
Getting multiple kills in a row without dying in a Call of Duty match is not only a great feeling, but the game also rewards you with powerful Killstreaks to utilize. Over the years, players have fought their way to earning iconic Killstreaks like Attack Dogs, Chopper Gunners, and Tactical Nukes.
Modern Warfare 2 will allow players to switch freely between earning Killstreaks through consecutive kills or score. Whether you prefer the Killstreak method or the Scorestreak method, here are the shiny new toys up for grabs in Modern Warfare 2.
Modern Warfare 2 Killstreaks & Scorestreaks explained
As previously mentioned, Infinity Ward has allowed players to choose their preferred way of playing Modern Warfare 2 by either equipping Killstreaks or Scorestreaks.
As usual, Killstreaks are earned by reaching the required kill total for that specific Killstreak without dying. It’s important to note that Killstreaks do not stack in Modern Warfare 2, which means that kills produced by your Killstreaks will not count toward your active streak.
Players will be able to select three Killstreaks but you won’t be able to change Killstreaks once a match starts. If you visit the Killstreaks menu you’ll notice a toggle at the bottom-left corner of your screen to switch from Killstreaks to Scorestreaks.
Much like previous Call of Duty games to feature Scorestreaks, players can primarily earn score through kills, assists, and playing the objective. Much like the Killstreak option, “when eliminated, your Scorestreak progress is reset to zero.”
