The next entry in the Call of Duty franchise, Modern Warfare 3, releases this week, and with that comes some new additions to the modes that we are all familiar with. These additions include fan favorite maps as well as some new ones, new weapons, and 23 killstreaks to pick and earn as you play the MW3 multiplayer.

Killstreaks, if you don’t know, are rewards given to players that can take out multiple enemies without dying. Like in recent games though, players can switch to score streaks instead that will keep track of how many points they earn without dying instead of eliminations. Some of these Call of Duty killstreaks will be ones that we have seen before in previous titles, but there are a few new ones here that may be worth checking out.
