How to choose The best Assault Strike package kill streaks, And what they all are and do. ( MW3 )
This guide will go over the kill streaks in the assault strike package, and which ones are best. Keep in mind this is in my personal opinion of what has worked for me, and i am simply sharing what i think will help you with your game the best.
Also.. I am on the Xbox Live network, for those of you who continue to ask, my gamer tag is Agent Johnr. I tend to not add new members from here unless I play with you first, and I only play hardcore domination, or Infected, but either way if you see me on, feel free to send a shout out.
The Kill streaks
So first i am going to list all of the kill streaks then below i will list which ones i think you should use depending on your game style.
UAV ( after 3 kills ) - The UAV is essentially one of the most helpful things in Call of Duty, this is even more important in Hard core where there is no constant mini map up. This will provide a radar like projection on the mini map allowing you to see where the enemy is, this lasts 30 seconds.
Care Package ( after 4 kills ) - Once you get 4 kills you will get a smoke grenade, when you throw this, it will emit a pink smoke and a helicopter will come in and drop a care package. Once dropped you will automatically receive any one of the other kill streaks in the assault strike pack if you can pick up the package before someone else kills you ( typically when a care package comes in the enemy will rush over there to try to intercept it).
I.M.S. ( after 5 kills ) - This device works similar to a bouncing betty / claymore in the sense that you will put this down, and when an enemy walks near it, a device will shoot up, and kill that person, or anyone else close enough to it. Also It is loaded with 4 grenades that shoot in the air. The night the game came out this would get you a few kills, but now players know how to take them out pretty quickly and only works sometimes.
Predator Missile (after 5 Kills ) - Well this is very similar to the other call of duty's that used this device. What you do is guide a missile that will come from the sky and you can control where it lands. Essentially this usually guarantees you at least 1 kill, sometimes more.
Sentry gun ( after 5 kills ) - Initially this works like a care package, you must call it in and a care package will drop, only this time, you can only get a sentry gun. The sentry gun is a place-able gun that will rotate about 90 degrees back and forth, and when an enemy walks in front of it , then sentry gun will shoot the enemy and kill them, The enemy can easily destroy this by knifing it, or shooting at it enough.
Precision Airstrike ( After 6 kills ) - This is another kill streak that has been in past call of duty's, and here you will be able to call in an airstrike that will send 3 airplanes that drop bombs on that area. You can control the directions that the airstrike planes will come in from. This is effective for hitting an enemy in their spawn if you would like to, or landing on an objective that you are defending.
Attack Helicopter ( after 7 kills ) - This kill streak will send in a weaker version of the pave low which for about a minute, a helicopter will hover and shoot at enemies and kill them. This is effective in hardcore as the little that the attack helicopter as to shoot to kill someone. Blind eye will allow you to be impervious to this, but it is still effective to use, because not everyone uses blind eye.
Strafe run ( after 9 kills ) - This kill streak will come in similar to the air strike meaning you can choose where and how it comes in, but instead of an air strike the strafe run will send 5 helicopters that will cover the ground for enemy people shooting any of them that are standing near where the helicopter is hovering. This to me is not effective because enemies can easily hide ina building or use blind eye.
AH-6 Overwatch ( after 9 kills ) - The AH-6 overwatch is pretty effective. This will fly in and follow you around, and kill any enemies that you come across. Its pretty powerful and is useful to cover your back if you are capturing objectives.
The reaper ( after 9 kills ) - The reaper will bring you into a plane, and you can shoot a total of 14 laser guided missiles at the enemy. This is pretty effective, and fun to use. I would say this is similar to the AC- 130 except that you only have 1 gun
Assault Drone ( After 10 kills ) - The assault drone to me is not worth it. After 10 kills you will be able to control a small unit that has missiles and a machine gun attached to it. If someone kills you while you are operating it, you will be taken out of it, and it typically is not that effective, which is why i do not suggest using it. I think that if you get it in a care package that fun, but to get 10 kills, there are better kill streaks to choose from.
AC-130 ( after 12 kills ) - Here you will be able to control 3 different gun in an AC-130 attack helicopter. You will be in the helicopter for about 30 seconds and get to use three different size weapons the 25mm, 45mm and 105mm guns to attack enemies. This is very effective if you hit the enemy and can usually guarantee a few kills since you can see where the enemy is at.
Pave Low ( after 12 kills ) - The pave low will allow you to call in an armored helicopter that will fly around the map and kill the enemy. Similar to the attack helicopter, but with much more powerful weapons, and more armor and tougher to shoot down.
Juggernaut ( after 15 kills ) - Here you will receive the Juggernaut suit along with the weapons M60E4 LMG and MP412 handgun. You will not move as fast, BUT you will be able to take a lot more damage before dying. This can be very effective if you use it right which i will talk about below when i talk about choosing a kills streak
Osprey Gunner ( 17 kills ) - this is similar to a chopper gunner, that will also drop care packages. It is very effective to both get kills, and drop care packages. If you can get 17 kills then i would suggest this, or just get one in a care package, either way this is a cool addition.
So now below i will talk about which ones you should use for your play style, and also will attach a link to show you how to get the MOAB (secret killstreak as well )
So, now that we know what the assault kill streaks are, lets see what the best ones are for your play style.
The beginner. When you first start playing Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 even if you played the other COD's you still are a beginner when you play the new one. So when you start i suggest not going to crazy. When you start playing the game until you know the map, i would say start small, with UAV to help your team, a Care package so that you can take a chance at getting a big item, like a osprey gunner, Pave Low or AC-130. And the last thing you should choose is a predator missile. This will guarantee you at least 1 more kill if not more. This setup is known as a 3-4-5 and will allow you to get your kill streaks in a fairly simple manner and is great for beginners.
The experienced. This is for people who are now a little more experienced with the game, and can stay on a longer kill streak. You will follow a 5-7-12. So basically you will set up for a Predator missile, an attack helicopter, and a Pave Low. After you get 5 kills, i would find a place to hide, call in your predator missile for 1 kill, then you need 1 more for an attack helicopter. Once you get that, call that in and wait. See how many kills that gets while you wait, and that will add to the total of 12 you need for a Pave Low. I suggest the Pave Low over the AC-130, because A- i play hard core so the AC-130 kills as many teammates as it does enemy. And B - the Pave Low allows you to keep playing the game while it gets you kills, as opposed to the AC-130 which allows you to control the unit instead of playing. Either way its personal preference but i prefer a Pave Low over AC-130.
Osprey gunner. Personally I use the 5-7-12 technique because its fairly simple to get that set of kill streaks. The osprey gunner will take 17 kills, and if this is what you are shooting for then i would suggest doing 7-12-17 which would include Attack helicopter, Pave low / AC-130, and then osprey gunner. Since your kill streaks will help get you towards the osprey as longa s you don't die i would use those which will get you the most kills.
Juggernaut - I personally do not suggest using this as your kill streak. It is difficult to get, and most people do not use this correctly so it can be a waste. Most people who get this rush around and fire their entire clip into the enemy without realizes that they should be helping the team. If you are playing anything with an objective you should use this to go solely after the objective since you typically cannot get blown off as easily or shot off.
MOAB.. The MOAB also known as the mother of all bombs is a kill streak you receive after 25 kills. You cannot use your other kills streaks to achieve this, and cannot die. So i do not suggest using this strike package set up for it. I do have a detailed guide that will teach you how to get the MOAB and i will prove a link to that right below.
