MW3 Season 1 new killstreaks

There are two new killstreaks set to become available with the release of MW3 Season 1. Both of them can be unlocked by completing certain Armory Challenges, however we don’t currently know what these challenges will entail. The two new killstreaks are: Swarm and EMP.


The Swarm killstreak will let players deploy a collection of mosquito drones which will provide blanket coverage of the area you use them in. In order to use it, you’ll need to earn a 15-player continuous killstreak, or earn yourself more than 1875 points during a match.


Using EMP will deploy an electromagnetic pulse. The surge of this pulse will disrupt all enemy gadgets, equipments, and even their own killstreaks. In order to use EMP, you’ll need to earn a 13-player continuous killstreak, or alternatively earn at least 1625 points during a match.

These killstreaks will certainly give players some new approaches to their gameplay, and open up some new opportunities for those willing to give them a try.
