UAV: Use these when it makes sense. If you’re about to get your next kill for an airstrike, use it. If your buddy needs one for an airstrike help him out.

Counter-UAVs: Pretty straight forward, it’s best to save it if another UAV is active. Or if you’re in a tactical game like capture flag. Fire off the counter-UAV so they can’t track you with the flag.

Airdrop crate: Since it doesn’t count towards a killstreak it’s best to save it until you are in a safe spot. A technique I use is hiding in a corner of the map. When you get a faildrop (ammo, UAV, counter-UAV) use it to bait enemies, you can rack up many kills with it.

Predator Missile:
Do not hit the right trigger right away and aim at the first target you see, slow it down let some dead enemies cluster or respawn then launch it and get your kills. 

Sentry Gun: Like a care package it doesn’t count towards your killstreak, UNLESS you are the first one to call in a sentry gun, and have not died yet. I believe it’s a glitch. Place it in an open area where there are few areas an enemy can knife it and make sure it’s a generally crowded zone. 

Precision Airstrike: Always wait for a UAV to be active, make sure you have a cluster of enemies and wait to see what direction the red dots are moving, aim a little ahead and watch as you destroy your opposition.

Attack helicopter: Not much you can do but hope your enemies don’t have stingers or javelins. Call it in and if your close to 11 kills, hide until it gets destroyed. 

Harriers: Same plan as precision airstrike, the harriers are deadly, they can rack up 5 kills just with the airstrike, the harrier shoots it’s gun fast and efficiently, I recommend it. 

Emergency Airdrop: Drops 4 airdrop crates, an important note is the plane comes in the direction you throw the grenade flare. Do it in a secluded and empty area, share with teammates, you get good XP. 

Pavelow: The most dominant automated killstreak. It has one flare and generally tears up the opposition.

Stealth Bomber: A precision airstrike on drugs, this thing will kill anything in it’s path. Be sure to use a UAV and learn their location then unleash the beast, you can rack up 1-9 kills with it.




Chopper Gunner:
When you get a chopper there are some tips and tricks to get the max amount of kills. The chopper gunner stays alive from it’s bullet supply, shoot in small bursts and do not spray or you’ll find yourself few kills and unsatisfied. You can win a game single handedly if you use it properly. It only has one flare so be sure to watch out for stingers.

AC130: The AC130 is an airship with devastating killing power, you have 3 choices of firepower, a missile with the radius of a predator missile, rockets the radius of AT4s and machine gun fire like a chopper gunner. You have 30 seconds to kill as much as possible, be sure to give your teammates the enemies whereabouts and use your missiles to clear buildings, when they respawn pick them off with the rockets and for a last resort use the machine gun, do this and you’ll find yourself with plenty of kills. 

EMP:
Disables all enemy killstreaks, radar, red dot sites, and holographic sites for one minute. Useful for tight games.

Nuke: In order to get this you need skill, or mad luck. The best killstreak setup I found was harriers, choppergunner, nuke. Or harriers, AC130, and nuke. This automatically ends the game.

    With the Harrier’s, make sure you get a couple kills with the carpet bomb, enemies are on those harrier’s lickety-split now that more people are figuring out how to get nukes. the Harrier normally dosen’t have long before it gets a stinger suppository….

      Are you on Crack? MOH was made by infintay ward or trey arychrcsis 2 hardly copied Call of duty As call of duty is linear as a straight line and bad company 2 only took the Regen Health that Call of duty had everything else was taken from battlefield and other similar titles nothing like call of duty the only simliiarty is that they are both FPS games.

      MY TURN halo had a similar gdameome. The drones are from frontlines fuel of war, the game that KAOS made before homefront which supported 50 players on consoles.It is fair to say that every game is a copy of each other nowdays.But instead saying mw3 copied those from How about say moh, homefront, crysis 2 and bc2 copied sooooo much from cod.You know its true.

      yes it’s true that it’s borrowing from other games. It means that they’re doing sietmhong right. In fact you can say that MW3 is the best of the FPS genre all-in-one. At the end of the day it’s still Call of Duty we all know and love. It’s only going to get better.
