Modern Warfare 3 Strike Packages Explained in New Video
Since killstreak rewards were first introduced in the Call of Duty franchise, the gameplay mechanics have always rewarded the players with the highest number of kills and a low number of deaths. In Modern Warfare 3 that’s all set to change thanks to the introduction of Strike Packages. In the latest behind-the-scenes video Mark Rubin, the game’s Executive Producer, explains what each package consists of and how they work.
In Modern Warfare 3 there will be three different Strike Pacakges catering to different play tactics. Instead of a killstreak system it is now a point streak system, meaning that actions such as assists, flag captures and even the use of certain perks can move your streaks forward.
The Assault Strike Package caters to the more traditional player focused on their kill to death ratio. It features Predator Missiles, Sentry Guns, and Assault Drones as rewards.
The Support Strike Package caters to more team-focused individuals. It features rewards such as UAV Jammer, Advanced UAV, Recon Drones and Sentry Guns. The benefit of the Support Strike Package is that your streaks do not reset on death and are cumulative over the entire round.
The third package is the Specialist Strike Package. You start the round with the usual three perks at the start of the round and then gain a new perk after every two kills. After eight kills you will have every perk in the game until you die. This essentially makes the player superpowered and not reliant upon AI killstreaks.
