COD MW2 Killstreaks & Scorestreaks – How Do They Work?

Here's a guide to explain the concept of Killstreaks and Scorestreaks in COD Modern Warfare 2.

Modern Warfare 2 is the new era of Call of Duty. With a Global Campaign, Multiplayer mode, and Special Ops, MW 2 features the return of the iconic Task Force 141. And along with that, the return of iconic characters like Soap Mactavish, Captain Price, and even Ghost is imminent. And while the classics return with a modern revamp, so do a lot of game mechanisms. But one game mechanism that has players widely excited is the return of Killstreaks and Scorestreaks. If you are a Modern Warfare veteran, you already know what these are and how they work but still, we recommend you check it out. Here’s all on Killstreaks & Scorestreaks in COD Modern Warfare 2.

How do Killstreaks Work in COD Modern Warfare 2

COD MW2 Killstreaks and Scorestreaks

Killstreaks are the number of kills you get in the round without dying. While it is this simple, the weaponry or support you get for Killstreaks varies. It depends on how long your Killstreak is. While 4 kills in your Modern Warfare 2 Killstreak gets you a UAV, 15 kills will get you the Juggernaut.

For Modern Warfare 2, the armory you can get for Killstreaks & Scorestreaks will be set from your Loadout. You can get up to three of them in your loadout depending on your choice and the ones available to you.

What are Scorestreaks and How to Use them in Call of Duty MW2

Scorestreaks are similar to Killstreaks in MW2 but the only difference is scores are more important than kills. Every activity you do in the match will provide you with a score that you can then use to get rewards. While scorestreaks of 500 in Modern Warfare 2 will get you a UAV, that of 1875 will get you a Juggernaut.
