How To Switch Between Killstreaks & Scorestreaks In Modern Warfare 2

Killstreaks and Score streaks are special abilities that you unlock as rewards in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. This time around, Scorestreaks are also back in MW2, and it is relatively easier to switch to Scorestreaks from Killstreaks as well.

These Killstreaks or Scorestreaks are essential in MW 2 because you can use them to equip different items. These items can help you and your teammates against your enemies. Moreover, they can also change the outcome of the battle in your favor if deployed on the right time.

Using your Killstreak/Scorestreaks you can equip these items before the battle. You can then launch Predator Missiles on enemy locations on the map. Moreover, you can drop a Crate Package for your teammates, activate a UAV to show nearby enemies, deploy a Sentry Gun to lock down areas, and bring in a Gunship, among others etc.

Killstreaks and Scorestreaks can only be accessed in the Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer by earning up a specific number of kills and score respectively. However, they are reset when you die. So, the more kills you get while alive or in a single round, the more Killstreaks or Score streaks you unlock. In this article, we will tell you how to switch your Killstreaks into Scorestreaks in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.

How to toggle between Killstreaks and Scorestreaks in MW2

The past Call of Duty games traditionally featured Killstreaks by getting a certain number of enemy kills in a single life. This concept was modified with the arrival of Pointstreaks where you had the options of getting points without getting kills.

However, this time Modern Warfare 2, has introduced the Scorestreak feature this time yet again. You will have the option to toggle between Killstreaks and Scorestreaks. You can easily switch between them to access the items to gain an upper hand in your battles.

Scorestreaks might prove better in a map with a lot of objectives for you to get a high score easily. Killstreaks could be more rewarding in a close-quarter-designed map where carnage is expected. Simply stated, If you are playing objective game modes, then you should opt for Scorestreaks. Whereas if you are playing kill-based game mode than you should go with the Killstreaks in MW 2.

The following method is how you can switch between Killstreaks and Scorestreaks in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.

  • Head into the Weapons tab from the main menu after launching MW2.
  • Select Killstreaks/Scorestreaks from here to see all of the available options.
  • The option to switch is located in the bottom left corner of the current screen.
  • If your Killstreaks were activated by default, you will see Scorestreaks in the bottom left corner, with the Un-Equip all option next to it.
  • Select the new streak option to change your rewards system. You can also press R2, or RT on PlayStation, and Xbox and for PC players you can press 2 to switch between Killstreaks and Scorestreaks.

Remember that you can only switch between Killstreaks and Score streaks before heading into an MW2 multiplayer match. If you lose the match, you will lose your streak as well. Therefore, make sure to decide on your reward system beforehand.
