Killstreaks are back. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will include them in its multiplayer mode. This news comes ahead of the full multiplayer reveal on August 1st, 2019, which we got a glimpse of via a short 23-second video.
The announcement featured a few images suggesting the types of killstreaks the game will include. One seems to involve a Juggernaut suit, which can be called in and shipped to you in the form of a care package. This will give you extra armor, if it’s anything like the Juggernaut from previous entries. Another killstreak we’ll see is the Infantry Assault Vehicle, a powerful light tank with a .50 cal machine gun equipped. We also got a glimpse at the White Phosphorus, which covers the map with white smoke flares that “disorient the enemy.”

In previous Call of Duty games, players could customize which killstreaks to use with their loadouts, giving them lots of options for various play styles. The challenge in earning a killstreak is relative to its power. For example, in previous entries, a simple UAV would take only a few kills in a row to earn, while the famous Nuke killstreak would require 25 chained kills back-to-back.
It’s unclear how many killstreaks Modern Warfare will include and how they’ll be implemented, but their inclusion seems exciting. We do know that the multiplayer levels you’ll be playing on will have various designs and will not all be simple three-lane maps. We’ll have to wait until the full multiplayer reveal to find out more and, when we do, we’ll be sure to keep you posted.
