All Modern Warfare 2 & Warzone 2 Killstreaks Explained

Like the previous iterations of COD, killstreaks will also play an essential role in Modern Warfare 2. If you weren't aware, killstreak is a special mechanic of Call of Duty games that provides additional benefits when a player gets three or more kills in a row without dying.

According to the most recent announcement by Activision, Modern Warfare 2 is going to be packed with a ton of Killstreaks. However, you can only equip three of them to use in your matches. With that being said, here's a detailed breakdown of all the Modern Warfare 2 & Warzone 2 Killstreaks to help you figure out the best ones.

Unfortunately, the developers have not revealed the Warzone 2 Killstreaks list yet. However, we'll make sure to update this section once we have any official intel.

Unlike Modern Warfare 2, Warzone 2 players can't get these Killstreaks by scoring kills. Instead, they need to buy them from the Buy Stations, scattered across different locations on the map.
