Modern Warfare 2: Custom Killstreak details

Set multiplayer rewards for noobs or veteran players

New details on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2's custom killstreaks have emerged, via the hands-on preview in the latest issue of PSM3 Magazine.

Unlike the last game - which rewarded players with only satellites, air strikes and attack choppers for chaining kills - Modern Warfare 2 will let you mix and match rewards to fit your skill, as shown in the previously-released video below.

Community man Robert Bowling offered PSM3 a bit more info: "You can have a three killstreak or a fifteen killstreak if you want, or something like the AC-130 [firing down in black and white from an airborne gunship] is one of the highest killstreaks you can select," he said.

"You take control of that and can fire down for thirty seconds, blow guys up," he so subtly put it.

As such, this means that new MW2 players can enter the fray with rewards associated with smaller strings of kills, while veterans can stick with the high-end goodies for pummelling down pain on the battlefield, says the mag.

Sounds good to us, we just hope there's something absolutely mental available - like the GoldenEye satellite or a bloody Metal Gear - for those who fancy opting to chain together a gargantuan number of kills (say, 50).
