February 5, 2023: Ahead of Season Two, we've checked our intel to showcase all of the MW2 killstreaks available in multiplayer.

Scoring a selection of Modern Warfare 2 killstreaks is hugely satisfying. Dominating the opposition also results in you earning Killstreaks capable of supporting your teammates or dealing even more damage to the opposition. Previous titles include a pack of attack dogs to a Tactical Nuke that immediately ends the match.


Modern Warfare 2 contains an extensive range of game-changing streaks to suit any style of play. Whether you want to support your squad or score as many kills as possible, there's something for everyone.
