Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 follows up on Modern Warfare 2 as a direct sequel. Developed by Sledgehammer Games in collaboration with Infinity Ward, Treyarch, Raven Software, and other Activision-led studios,
The multiplayer game mode is the most played game mode for most CoDs since Black Ops 3. Modern Warfare 3 is no exception, so it is normal for Sledgehammer Games to put more focus on the multiplayer aspects, such as killstreaks and field equipment.
What are Killstreaks in Modern Warfare 3?
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. Moreover, killstreaks allow players to make their playstyles vivid and help them gain control of the map.
