Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 is the direct sequel to MW19. The game shares almost every core mechanic. Like most in-game features, MW2 also shares the same killstreak pool with its predecessor. Killstreaks have been an integral part of every CoD game.

Players earn killstreaks by going on a kill chain. These killstreaks can be used in-game to gain the upper hand on other players. Most players struggle to pick the perfect killstreak as it does not suit their playstyle. Fortunately, pros at LA Guerillas have revealed the best killstreaks for each playstyle.

Best Killstreaks in Modern Warfare 2 for Each Playstyle


Assassin playstyle is focused on a recon-based playstyle. Players with this playstyle focus on functioning based on map info. The whole team also benefits from this playstyle too.

Killstreaks: UAV, Counter UAV & Advanced UAV


UAV shares enemies’ pings with you and your whole team, making the amount of intel high during a match. Advanced UAV is the more advanced version of the UAV, it shares real-time enemy locations with the direction they are facing towards. On the contrary, counter UAVs can help you limit your enemies to get info from their recon killstreaks and by blurring their TACmap.


The slayer playstyle is for players who rack up loads of kills every match. These killstreaks can help players gain more eliminations in seconds on a kill-mongering run.

Killstreaks: Chopper Gunner, Gunship & Juggernaut


Chopper gunner is a killstreak that allows players to call in a helicopter with a machine gun and missiles. Gunship is the famous AC-130 which is also similar to the Chopper Gunner, except it moves in a straight direction. On the contrary, the Juggernaut provides players with an armoured suit and minigun players can use to blast their way through their enemies.
