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.
