Leaker claims Modern Warfare will have three types of streaks, including Specialist Streaks

It appears that Specialist Streaks could be making a surprise return in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, according to new information released by an infamous leaker. 

With the highly-anticipated Modern Warfare title just months away from release, the buzzing Call of Duty community continues to starve for more details about the game’s Multiplayer side of things.

However, the global reveal of Multiplayer isn’t happening until August 1, which means that players have had to resort to getting their news from those who claim to have insider information about the game. 

One such person is YouTuber ‘TheGamingRevolution,’ who’s established himself as a prominent source for supposedly leaked MW content. 

His latest leak came on July 16, and it was about the apparent return of Specialist Streaks: “Specialist Streaks are back. Big changes are happening lads.”

Specialist Streaks were a mechanic first introduced in Modern Warfare 3 and later in Ghosts, adding another dimension to unlocking streaks in Multiplayer.

Unlike traditional streaks, Specialist Streaks rewarded players with additional Perks whenever they accumulated a certain number of points in a row without dying.

Players who achieved the maximum point streaks would unlock all of the Perks during the match, giving them a significant boost in ability and power over their opponents.

However, Specialist Streaks haven’t been seen in Call of Duty since Ghosts, with unlockable streaks reverting back to just equipment and support. 

As a result, players could only use a limited amount of Perks per match, as the special abilities would only come into affect when they were equipped on an active class.      

Specialist Streaks (right column) were one of three unlockable streaks in Modern Warfare 3 (pictured here) and Ghosts.

That being said, Specialist Streaks will apparently not be the only form of streaks in Modern Warfare. 

According to the YouTuber, the game will also feature traditional equipment and support as both scorestreaks and killstreaks, giving players three different sets of things to unlock during matches. 

Of course, there is no way of knowing if any of what the YouTuber has leaked to be legitimate or true, other than waiting for the global reveal event on August 1 to get the details from the horse’s mouth.

However, TheGamingRevolution has earned himself some credibility in the community, having correctly disclosed the existence of the 2v2 Gunfight mode that was later shown by Infinity Ward themselves.

In the past several weeks, he’s come out with a lot of leaked details about MW, such as the potential list of Perkskillstreakscompetitive modes, and the number of maps and weapons.

Whether or not those turn out to be accurate, only time will tell, and there’s not that much longer to wait anyway.

Rapper turned popular Twitch streamer Soulja Boy went on a hilarious rant-like victory speech after he dominated the opposition in a match of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War.

After loading into the Crossroads map for a little free for all action, the rapper took no prisoners, destroying the other members of the lobby with ease.

By the time Soulja landed the final kill bringing his score to 30, the player back in second place had a mere 22 making the streamer’s performance even crazier.

Soulja himself was over the moon with his play and boasted his insane skills in an epic speech where he shouted at the top of his lungs.

Soulja Boy pops off in Cold War
Soulja Boy was hyped after winning the round.

“Let’s f**king go! I’m in beast mode! I’m at f**king beast mode!” he screamed in glory. “Stop playin’ with me! That’s what I do! When I get in that mode!”

As the 30-year-old continued his hyped speech, the “Best Play” was being shown in the background documenting the streamer’s series of frags.

Throughout the clip, Soulja manages to pick up three kills in quick succession padding his lead. Amusingly, some in his chat thought that the game was too dominant and he was playing against AI.

“Of course when a [person] winning they’re going to say it’s bots!” he smirked. “I’m so motherf***ing raw I make these [people] look like bots! Look up them Gamer Tags and DM then and ask them if they’re bots!”

Needless to say, Soulja Boy’s confidence was really something else and being able to back up the trash talk with big wins just makes it so much sweeter.

Of course, if you want, you can use Soulja’s loadout in your own games and see if it makes you pop off as hard as him. For his primary weapon, he opts for the MP5 with the Duckbill Choke, Millstop Reflex, +22 extended, 6RND Tube and Steady Aim Laser.

Soulja Boy was making opponents look like bots from the campaign.

His secondary is the Hauer 77. For equipment, he opts for stuns, semtex, and proximity mine. Finally, for perks and Wildcard he uses Paranoia, Gearhead and Ghost equipped with Danger Close.

Give it a shot and see if you can get on Soulja Boy’s level.
