Detailed List of MW3 Deathstreaks - Stopping Power and Final Stand Come Back

Thought stopping power, final stand, and martyrdom were gone? Not quite. They do return in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, but in the form of deathstreaks. (Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

"Deathstreaks:

Juiced: 4 deaths – move faster for a few seconds after spawning.

Revenge: 5 deaths – see position of last enemy that killed you on your mini-map.

Final Stand: 4 deaths – unlocks at lvl 32, most likely similar to last stand but with a primary weapon.

Martyrdom: 4 deaths – unlocks at lvl 51, drop a live grenade after dying.

Dead Man’s Hand: 6 deaths – unlocks at lvl 57, fall into last stand after dying with C4 equipped in your hand.

Hollow Points: 5 deaths – unlocks at lvl 71, bullets cause more damage for one kill (stopping power)."

At least it gets unlocked at level 71 instead of 10-20 or something.

i guess I'm gonna be committing suicide a lot just to earn that martyrdom lol
Hayabusa 117  +   1402d ago
Isn't the point of death streaks suppose to be that it gives noob players a fighting chance? How are the noobs going to unlock it at level 71 when they keep dying? Furthermore, doesn't that mean only l33t COD players will unlock the extra benefits of dying multiple times? Aren't they good enough to make a come back without the aid of a death streak?

This smells of hypocrisy and short sightedness to me. One of their designers should be sacked.

I kind of agree with Hayabusa's comment but leveling up in Call Of Duty games isn't hard at all. You just need to have a dedication and some luck. Keep playing modes like Headquarters Pro or Domination and you'll reach level 70 in no time. If you're really dedicated, you might get there in days or maybe in over a week. But still, they should've made it available at 40 if you ask me. Like Martyrdom in MW 2 (if I'm not mistaken). It's not that big of a deal anyway, you'll just have some extra power to kill 1 guy and then it'll return to normal.

Deathstreaks should never have been put in CoD. It's BS that people get unfair help just because they suck. They should just learn to get better.

Lol okay so they get rid of some and bring back others?
Criminal  +   1403d ago
I've always hated Deathstreaks, but at least they're not bring back Painkiller.
Mister_V  +   1403d ago
I thought I saw the painkiller emblem in one of the multiplayer trailers :S hopefully not.
theonlylolking  +   1403d ago
Final stand is WAY worse than painkiller. Final stand last as long as you can survive after you spawn.

Gives me more reason to suck at this game

actual pic or it didn't happen

I believe the last stand pro allowed you to use equipment in last stand, so you could equip c4 and detonate it but it wouldn't be really quick like this deathstreak.

Juiced seems pointless, especially for big maps
Criminal  +   1403d ago
It's what I thought until I realized if someone is getting spawn trapped, it might come in handy.
Pro_TactX  +   1402d ago
A better solution would be to change the spawn system to help prevent spawn-trapping in the first place.
floetry101  +   1403d ago
Minimum of 4 deaths in a row balances it out a little more. There are no painkiller annoyances at least and Martyrdom was fairly well handled in MW2 (aside from most things).

Juiced sounds like fun. The Machinima director Hutch said it's like Lightweight x2 for 7 seconds. I know after I have a few deaths I really want to get straight back into the battle. Sounds like the best way to do so.

whats the problem with martyrdom, i thought it added a bit of excitement to the game, id personally love to drop multiple grenades

if they wanted to tone it down a bit, you could pick up the fallen grenade and it gets added to your arsenal or the fallen grenade only has the abilty to kill the person how shot you
Raven_Nomad  +   1403d ago
Seems much, MUCH more balanced. Thanks for listening to the people IW.
Call_me_Ishmael  +   1403d ago
i thought robert bowling said there would be no last stand???
BladedTech  +   1402d ago
Wow. Kinda sucky perks to be relying on...
DFresh  +   1402d ago
Why am I not surprised Infinity Ward can't make a balanced game anymore?

MaverickStar7  +   1402d ago
I wish people would stop crying about games being balanced because what they mean is they want everything to work in their favor or the game must be broken. If you are running across deathstreaks a lot, then you are already beating the crap out of the other team. And these things are so minor that if they are a hinderance to you then you need to improve your game.
AngelicIceDiamond  +   1402d ago
So u can die a million times and get super strong? GTFOOH. thats dumb
Getowned  +   1402d ago

NeloAnjelo  +   1402d ago
Yeah reward crap players. What joke. No wonder so many play this faeces.
ferelinstincts  +   1402d ago
Since when did it make sense to reward players who are bad at the game?!?!
fullmetal297  +   1402d ago
What happen to just having a gun and grenade, and duking it out with each other?
Relientk77  +   1402d ago
