Call of Duty Modern Warfare Killstreaks Guide

All of Call of Duty Modern Warfare's killstreaks and rewards in a single place.

It's little surprise that Call of Duty Modern Warfare has killstreaks, especially considering this is technically an adjacent remake of Call of Duty 4. If you've played previous games in the franchise, you know that killstreaks provide important bonuses that can turn the tide of any multiplayer match.

From strategy to tactics, killstreak advantages have myriad uses; put together in the right ways, and put into the right hands, they can help create unstoppable builds. 

Below, we've outlined all of the killstreaks in Call of Duty Modern Warfare. We've laid them out by the number of kills you need to activate them. Additionally, we've provided the rank at which you can unlock them, as well as a small description of what they do.
