Well, well… The future of the Call of Duty series is almost here, and we really can’t wait. We know the Modern Warfare 2 release date is a little ways away still, but the Modern Warfare 2 beta start time is almost upon us and there’s so much to look forward to when it comes to brand new Modern Warfare 2 weapon customisation features and gameplay. If you want to know more about the list of Modern Warfare 2 killstreaks on offer, though, we have you covered.
Modern Warfare 2 is going back to basics when it comes to in-game support and offering players the chance to earn killstreaks instead of scorestreaks. While a subtle difference, it’s an important change that should keep multiplayer more about gunplay and less about avoiding Attack Helicopters and Predator Missiles.
But, whether you need to keep an eye on your score or your kill count, one question still remains: what Modern Warfare 2 killstreaks even are there in this game? Well, keep reading and we’ll fill you in with what we know.
