With Activision’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 on the way, the company’s already revealed tons of information about the game during its COD: Next Showcase Event. One feature that’s had fans giddy and elated to relish as much Modern Warfare 2 as possible is Killstreaks. This guide details all the Killstreaks players can equip and grind out in matches and unleash on their enemies. Find out all you need to know about the mechanic below.
COD Modern Warfare 2 - All Killstreaks & Scorestreaks
Bridging the gap for players between skill and newly-acquired experience are Killstreaks and Scorestreaks. The difference between both mechanics is that Killstreaks require players to continuously kill enemies without dying, which might be harder for newcomers.

On the other hand, Scorestreaks require players to continue playing the objective, earning assists, using Field Upgrades effectively and performing other actions in-match, which is easier to do.
But you can only earn one of the two at a time in Call of Duty, so newer players are recommended to use Scorestreaks, while veterans should find Killstreaks fairly easy to acquire. Here are all the streak rewards you can earn in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.
UAV (4 Kills or 500 Score)
The UAV is a drone that periodically reveals enemy players' whereabouts on the mini-map.

Counter-UAV (5 Kills or 625 Score)
As the name goes, the Counter-UAV counters opposing enemy’s UAV drones and other tools that survey the mini-map.
Care Package (5 Kills or 625 Score)
The Care Package is a little loot drop that descends from the sky and provides a random item or tool that players can use.
Cluster Mine (5 Kills or 625 Score)
Upgrading Claymores and taking it to the next level is the Cluster Mine. It functions like a proximity mine but does the damage of four Claymores combined.

Overwatch Helo (8 Kills or 1,000 Score)
The Overwatch Helo is similar to The VTOL Jet but follows players' Operators' in-air and alerts of any enemy and fires back at them.
Wheelson-HS (8 Kills or 1,000 Score)

The Gunship is the most powerful airborne controlled vehicle of destruction players can use. It’s equipped with various armaments and a built-in Thermal Sight to make hunting down enemies all the easier.
Advanced UAV (12 Kills or 1,500 Score)
The Advanced UAV functions similarly to a UAV but tells players the direction of an enemy’s pathing. It’s the best tool for reconnaissance.
Juggernaut (15 Kills or 1,875 Score)
The Juggernaut is the strongest ground-based streak players can use. It essentially provides a suit of metal-clad armor and a minigun that together makes for the perfect form of destruction and protection.
