Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare Edit
In Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare's multiplayer, players who achieve a five-kill streak (killing five enemy players consecutively without dying) are given the ability to call in an airstrike. Airstrikes cannot be called in while another airstrike is in progress, regardless if the Airstrike was called by their teammates or their enemies. Airstrikes will not damage or destroy helicopters. When the player calls in an airstrike, they must select the target area. The aircraft will fly in from the direction of the current spawn area of the player's team and deploy explosives in a line, although the bombs will damage enemies outside the line of attack. Once dropped, it becomes exceptionally hard to survive the airstrike. The multiplayer airstrikes are delivered by three MiG-29 'Fulcrums' though in the SAS mission Heat, airstrikes are delivered by USMC AV-8B Harrier II jump jets. Airstrikes are capable of penetrating thin material such as metal sheets and drywall. Airstrikes are also non-stackable; a player's airstrike option will be replaced by a helicopter support option if the player gets two more kills without dying and without using the airstrike option.
- The airstrike was originally supposed to be awarded at a seven kill streak.
- If the announcers are talking when an airstrike is called in, the dialogue will cut off as soon as the ordnance hits the ground.
