What are the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare killstreaks? The new Modern Warfare brings back various multiplayer mechanics that veterans of the series know and love. One of the standouts is killstreaks: with a succession of kills without dying, you're rewarded with radars, airstrikes, and more to turn a few kills into dozens.

Along with some all-time favourites, there are new additions being added to the roster, including the controversial white phosphorus and a suit that looks like a power armor from Fallout. Reaching the required body count is challenging, but the rewards are worth the effort. The UAV and Counter UAV, for example, are essential, and calling in armor can turn the tide of an even deathmatch. I recommend you pay attention to your options and plan accordingly before heading into multiplayer. Here are all the killstreak rewards in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.
