MW3 Developers Reveal Plans to Test New Killstreak Feature

A recent Q&A with Sledgehammer Games revealed many things coming to MW3, including the return of the Killstreak loop.

It’s been two weeks since MW3 launched, bringing fans to old maps from 2009’s Modern Warfare 2 with new gameplay bells and whistles. Even though the launch hasn’t been perfect, Sledgehammer Games has remained exceptionally forthcoming about what the future holds for MW3.

The studio just hosted a Q&A session on Reddit, where team members interacted with the community to discuss glaring issues. In addition to the flurry of SMM-related questions, some good information was shared about Sledgehammer Games’ position on player concerns.

One change the studio may be looking to address is Kill/Scorestreaks and could see the return of “Loop Killstreaks”.

Sledgehammer Games Hints MW3 Killstreaks Could Return

Since CoD 4: Modern Warfare, the Killstreak system has been one of the most rewarding systems in CoD. As the name suggests, racking up long win streaks will reward you with gaming equipment, such as drones or even Juggernauts, to turn the tide in your favor.

CoD has gone through various changes over time, with the Killstreak system morphing into a Scorestreak system to reward players for playing the objective. However, the most recent change to the system came in Modern Warfare 2019, as players could no longer “loop Killstreaks”, meaning they would have to die to earn a new set of Killstreaks.

MW3 features the same mentality, and during the Q&A session, one player asked the developers if they planned to change that.

Sledgehammer Games responded to JuggerClutch’s comment with a rather interesting response, as the developers stated that this is something they would look to implement in experimental playlists.

The previously mentioned mode is something the studio recently revealed as a way to try out new gameplay features to judge player feedback. The first playlist introduced red outlines on the players to make them easier to see.

With MW3 freshly launched, don’t expect this feature to be tested anytime soon. However, it’s been a breath of fresh air to see how Sledgehammer is handling its first CoD title in two years since Vanguard’s launch.
