Earlier today, it was confirmed that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will implement killstreaks in multiplayer rather than scorestreaks. As part of that announcement, a few killstreak rewards have been mentioned as well, and it seems Modern Warfare will feature something other than killstreaks that have been absent in the franchise for quite some time, and that’s vehicles you can drive!
Over on Twitter, Call of Duty YouTuber Drift0r (who has confirmed to have played the game during Activision’s influencer playtest) mentioned that he earned the Infantry Assault Vehicle killstreak reward during a playtest, but mentioned how he was a bad driver as well.
I sweated super hard to earn this one in our early playtest. It tore people up but I was a terrible driver. pic.twitter.com/W5vbA4njov

This confirms that there will be at least one Modern Warfare vehicle available in multiplayer that can be driven. Based on the killstreak rewards leaked list (which seems to be accurate), the tank seems to be the only killstreak reward in the game that can be driven. There are other vehicles as killstreak rewards like the Chopper Gunner and the like, but it’ll act the same as in past Call of Duty titles where you’ll be able to man the turrets and nothing more.
If memory serves me right, the last time a Call of Duty game had a vehicle killstreak reward that can be driven was Treyarch’s World at War, which was released way back in 2008.
Don’t forget to mark your calendars for this August 1 as that’s when Infinity Ward will host the multiplayer reveal.
In other Modern Warfare news, Infinity Ward will make customization in the game “realistic and relevant,” which means we might not see pink-colored camos in the game, and the in-game watch characters wear will actually tell the time as well.
