Is the Tactical Nuke killstreak coming to Modern Warfare 2?

Warzone 2 releases on November 16 on all platforms.

The Tactical Nuke first appeared in Modern Warfare 2 (2009) and last appeared in Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War. Initially, players needed just 25 kills, but Modern Warfare 2019 required 30 kills to earn the elusive killstreak.

However, such a game-ending killstreak has not yet been seen in the battle royale spinoff, Warzone. According to Call of Duty leaker TheGhostOfHope that is set to change.

The GhostofHope set off a firestorm with a short tweet reading, “you can get a nuke in Warzone 2.0.”

Modern Warfare 2019’s iteration killed every enemy, engulfed all players’ screen with a white screen, and automatically ended the match. Its unclear how a game ending killstreak would transfer over to Warzone 2, and fans were shocked when they saw the leak.

One user responded, “that sounds terrifying.”

A second player added, “so you’re saying if I get 30 kills, I can just kill the entire lobby.”

Getting 30 straight kills in a Warzone match will be no easy task. Everything also depends on how many players will be in a Warzone 2 lobby. Caldera supported 150 players at once, but fans demanded an increase to 200.

As of right now, nothing has been confirmed so take this leak with a grain of salt. We will provide an update when we learn more about what killstreaks are coming to Warzone 2 and whether they include the Nuke.
