With the exception of Call of Duty: WWII, most modern entries in the FPS franchise have done away with killstreak counters in multiplayer. Which is a pretty big frustration for players who like to keep track of their PvP records. While you can use scorestreaks to keep track, it’s much more difficult to do so during a live match than the old killstreak counters.
Luckily, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will be bringing killstreaks back. Just a few days ahead of the official multiplayer reveal, Infinity Ward confirmed the return of killstreaks on the official Call of Duty twitter.
Own the opposition – reap the rewards.

The Killstreak announcement didn’t just inform fans that the counters will return to their multiplayer matches, but also that there will be a few specific types of killstreaks and the reveal of some associated gear. The Juggernaut streak means that Modern Warfare 3‘s Juggernaut armor is returning and will have a special associated achievement. Meanwhile the White Phosphorous streak will require players to kill a number of other players with airstrikes of burning white smoke.
The full Multiplayer reveal for Modern Warfare will take place on Thursday, August 1, 2019. Activision and Infinity Ward released a teaser for the Multiplayer reveal just this weekend.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is set to release on October 25, 2019 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
