Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3

Killstreaks are bonuses that are earned by killing multiple enemies in a row without dying or gaining points by completing objectives. The name has been changed in Modern Warfare 3 to pointstreak because now completing objectives such as capturing a flag count toward getting your poinstreak reward instead of just getting kills like previous Call of Duty games. There are also deathstreaks which are earned by dying a certain number of times without a kill.

There are three different killstreak packages or “pointstreaks” for Modern Warfare 3 called Assault, Support, and Specialist. The Specialist Strike Package doesn’t have any killstreaks, but it allows you to choose 3 additional perks. The Support Strike Package allows you to die without having your streak reset.

  1. Assault Pointstreaks
