Killstreaks

Killstreaks have been a heavily-debated part of the game, with the change from scorestreaks back to killstreaks being argued as ruining objective play and forcing players to play for kills, rather than the win.

Nonetheless, here are the killstreaks that will be in Modern Warfare.

  • Personal Radar (3 kills) The escort drone will activate the radar for the owner allowing them to ping nearby enemies.
  • Counter UAV (4 kills) This drone will bring together enemy signals which will disrupt their mini map. It’s stronger the closer that you are.
  • UAV (4 kills): The recon ship shows enemies locations for the player and their team.
  • Care Package (4 kills) A random killstreak care package will be called to the player’s location which is available for all allies.
  • Cluster strike (5 kills) Cluster mortars will fall on a designated location.
  • Cruise Missile (5 kills) the player will take control of a cruise missile to a location of their choice.
  • Precision Airstrike (5 kills) Twin jets will fly in and fire away along the best available path.
  • Wheelson (7 kills) Take control of a remote-controlled UGV equipped with a turret.
  • Infantry Assault Vehicle (7 kills) It’s a tank. Players will control a tank and a gun on top. Second player will jump on a turret.
  • Emergency Airdrop (8 kills) It’s a souped up care package, this will call three random Killstreak care packages to your location.
  • VTOL Jet (8 kills) An airborne jet will fire a barrage of missiles at an area of the players choosing.
  • Chopper Gunner (10 kills) players can control the assault helicopter.
  • White Phosphorus (10 kills) These are white smoke flare canisters. This will disorientate an enemy and, if too close, they will burn.
  • Support Helicopter (11 kills) A heavy assault helicopter will provide cover over a chunk of the map with its twin turrets.
  • Gunship (12 kills) A massive gunship which will fly over and take out enemies with different weaponry
  • Advanced UAV (12 kills) This UAV will expose the enemy and provide their direction on the mini map.
  • Juggernaut (15 kills) It calls a care package that allows you to get a juggernaut suit and attack enemies with a huge chain gun.

Maps

Maps are one of the most important parts of a good Call of Duty game; we've seen clear examples in the past of great maps being the difference between a good game and a bad one, and this will be no different. Here are the maps we know of so far:

  • Gun Runner: set just outside of a Russian Town
  • Hackney Yard: a London-based map
  • Azhir Cave: A cave network within a small town
  • Aniyah Palace: a large Middle Eastern palace, a town area with a road surrounding it all
  • Gunfight: indoor warehouse
  • Pine: a relatively bare forest
  • Stack: a large warehouse

So, that's everything that's been revealed from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare so far. What do you think?
