Modern Warfare 3 is packed full of nostalgia, and long-time players will be pleased to see that the MGB Tactical Nuke Killstreak has made a return. Here’s to get a Nuke in MW3.

Modern Warfare 3 brings plenty of fan-favorite features and mechanics back to Call of Duty including the Ninja Perk, classic minimap, as well as all of the maps from MW2 2009. There’s also a set of new Killstreaks and Equipment to experiment with, helping to quickly turn the tide of a match.

But one tried-and-tested Killstreak that has made a return is the MGB Tactical Nuke. However, it’s also the toughest Killstreak to get in the game, so you’ll need the best weapons to be in with a chance.

Here’s how to get a Nuke in MW3.

How to get a Nuke in MW3

Modern Warfare 3’s MGB Tactical Nuke is earned by getting a 30 Killstreak in one match. You can only use your weapons and equipment as Killstreaks won’t count towards the total.

Although MW3 takes place on classic maps from Modern Warfare 2 (2009), the Nuke has the same requirement as recent titles like Cold War and MW2 2022, instead of the original 25 kills.

The good news is that, unlike the original MW2, players don’t need to equip the Killstreak before a match, as anyone who gets 30 kills in a row with weapons and equipment will automatically get the Nuke.

The Nuke is the most powerful Killstreak in Modern Warfare 3.

Once you’ve hit 30 kills without dying, the MGB Tactical Nuke will appear on your screen and you can call it in using right on the D-Pad. Your character will then punch a code into a tablet to start a short countdown before the bomb is launched.

Calling in a Nuke brings the active Modern Warfare 3 match to an end and secures an instant victory for you and your team. So, if a player on the enemy team is racking up plenty of kills without dying, be sure to deal with them to keep the game from ending early.
