Best Killstreaks in MW3

With many streaks left to be revealed, there are just a few clear winners in MW3 thus far.

The UAV is always a solid choice, especially when it comes to gaining intel on where the enemy is on the map. The same can be said for the Counter UAV’s ability to deny the opposition that same info.

When it comes to kills the SAE and Juggernaut Recon are your best bets. But when MW3 launches, there will be plenty more choices to be had.

Picking out the right combination of killstreaks is almost as important as building your loadout. Depending on your role on your squad or what kind of damage you’re looking to do, here are a few good combinations of streaks to work with.

Tactician

UAV – Counter UAV – SAE

Intel is paramount. With this loadout of streaks, you will keep the minimap filled with red dots, scramble the enemy’s view of your team, and then carpet bomb the crap out of them when they’re bunched up.

Slayer

Mosquito Drone – SAE – Juggernaut

You’re the killer, the chaser of all things domination. With this setup, all of your streaks are centered on picking up kills and racking up the highest score in the lobby.

Annoyance

SAM Turret – Guardian-SC – Remote Turret

You’re a troll, just embrace it with this setup of three streaks that serve to do nothing but piss off the enemy. You can control the skies and the ground with these, so make sure to turn off your messages unless you like to laugh at hate mail.
