Modern Warfare 2 will allow players to choose between Killstreaks or Scorestreaks, allowing players to choose how they want to earn rewards in-game.

Call of Duty Next has finally arrived, providing fans with a mass amount of information on the future of Warzone and Modern Warfare 2. The event showcased a host of gameplay, giving fans their first look at the game prior to the multiplayer beta‘s release on September 16.

As well as revealing details on the Perk system, Gunsmith, and FOV, fans also got critical information on whether Modern Warfare 2 will follow the Killstreak or Scorestreak system.

Scorestreaks tend to be implemented more in Treyarch-developed Call of Duty games such as Black Ops Cold War, whereas Infinity Ward usually sticks with the classic Killstreak system, which players tend to always call for.

It seems Infinity Ward will be bucking this trend, as Modern Warfare 2 will allow players to choose between Killstreaks and Scorestreaks before matches begin.

This will allow players who solely focus on kills to earn their streaks, while also letting objective players earn rewards for capturing points or flags.

Players will simply toggle through using RT / R2 on the Killstreaks screen, and then select which ones they would like to use during the match.

Players will have a chance to use some of these streaks in the Modern Warfare 2 beta, which is also set to provide some pretty awesome beta rewards.
