Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is in the midst of its online multiplayer beta, giving players the chance to try out the 2v2 Gunfight mode, standard multiplayer, and the 32 vs 32 large-scale Ground War battles. Twitch streamer Shroud has been playing the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare open beta this weekend, and in one stream, he managed to get an absurdly impressive melee killstreak.
In the clip, Shroud is playing Ground War in the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare beta. He ends up in a building full of enemies, but he melees through them all before they even seem to notice that he's there. While he's been described in the past as a "human aimbot," Shroud proves with this clip that he can kill a ton of enemies with ease and without even firing a single shot.
Recent Call of Duty games have focused on scorestreaks over killstreaks, but Call of Duty: Modern Warfare brings back killstreaks. This means that regardless of what mode he was playing, getting these kills in a row sets Shroud up with killstreak rewards that can be used to greatly benefit his entire team. Some fear that the focus on getting kills may lead to some players ignoring the objective, but we'll have to wait and see how it all plays out come the game's official launch.
As impressive as Shroud's melee killstreak is, it still isn't enough for him to get biggest killstreak in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare brings back the nuke killstreak, but it requires players get a staggering 30 kills in a row to use it. This is quite the ask, as it's rare for anyone to get that many calls in a Call of Duty match total, let alone without dying.
However, the nuke killstreak in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare intended to be a rare sight, so it's not surprising that the requirement to get it is so high. It's possible Infinity Ward may tweak it post-launch, but we wouldn't hold our breath.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare launches on October 25 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
