Modern Warfare 2 Multiplayer Launch Killstreaks: Full List


Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is set to release on Oct. 28 and players wondering what Killstreaks will be available can find our full breakdown below.

To nobody's surprise, killstreaks will be coming back in Modern Warfare 2. These in-game assets have been a staple of the Call of Duty multiplayer experience and can be crucial in dictating how a match goes. Classic killstreaks such as the UAV, Care Package, and Precision Airstrike will be available to players who meet the elimination requirements for said killstreaks.

Refreshingly, Modern Warfare 2 gives players the option to use a Scorestreak system as opposed to the classic Killstreak system. Players that opt for the Scorestreak method will instead receive Killstreaks based on the score amount they obtain during a match. Both methods require players to not be eliminated to maintain their current score or eliminations.

Modern Warfare 2 boasts a total of 19 available killstreaks for players to take advantage of.

Each category is broken up by the number of eliminations or total score required to activate the Killstreak.
