MW3 Secrets: Say hello to the 25 kill M.O.A.B killstreak

We are very surprised that this has been kept a secret, but since there are many good players in the Call of Duty world, one of the biggest hidden features of Modern Warfare 3 multiplayer has now been let out of the bag. Remember the Tactical Nuke 25 killstreak from MW2? – It has now been replaced with the M.O.A.B.

Yeah, the M.O.A.B, or Mother of All Bombs is now the highest killstreak award in Modern Warfare 3, and we can tell you that it is a lot better than the Tactical Nuke, for a number of reasons.

Firstly, we can confirm that using the M.O.A.B will NOT end the game, like the Tactical Nuke did on Modern Warfare 2. The M.O.A.B will however, take out every member of the opposing team, and it will also grant the user an EMP, disabling all enemy equipment and enemy aircraft for one minute whilst in use.

That’s not all either. Your teammates will also benefit from having a pro player on the team as using the M.O.A.B will give every team member double XP for the rest of the game, making the M.O.A.B popular all round! It is brilliant that it doesn’t end the game as that was plain frustrating in Modern Warfare 2, but Infinity Ward rewarding other team members with an XP boost is a fantastic idea.

Have you managed to use an M.O.A.B in game, or seen somebody use it? If you haven’t don’t worry as there are already a few videos popping up online from players who have used one. We have included a one below so you can check it out straight away.

It’s worth pointing out that the M.O.A.B is active for all Strike Packages, as we heard that some of you were saying that it is for the Specialist Strike Package only – this is incorrect. Get 25 kills on Assault or Support too and you’ll be the envy of all your team. Let us know your thoughts on the new M.O.A.B and your experiences of it in-game so far.

    obviously a cheater, a loser, and a total waste of human space.  he is one of the millions of players that make this game an epic fail for the rest of us average to below average players.

    No He’s NOT a cheater. I’ve been subbed to this guys youtube channel for a long time and he plays like this all the time. He’s not a cheater just a beast player! If you don’t believe me look up TheMarkOfJ on youtube.

    I am pretty sure it does not work for support…at least it didnt for me. From what I have heard and seen I think it is for assault only. Please let me know if I am wrong on this…

    from what ive heard, you cant use a part of you’re kill streak, like you cant deploy a predator during you’re assault killstreak, or a SAM on you’re support killstreak, i find specialist to be best for a MOAB cause it doesnt count against you’re MOAB, hope this helped
