Once earned, players can detonate the bomb, unleashing a massive green gas explosion that wipes out the entire enemy team.

However, unlike the MGB nuke, it does not instantly end the match, allowing for a strategic shift in momentum.

Imagine clearing a heavily fortified enemy position or completely turning the tide of a close game with a single detonation.

The exact number of kills or score needed to activate this killstreak remains unconfirmed.

Considering its game-changing impact, we anticipate that it might necessitate only slightly fewer kills than the match-ending MGB’s 30 kills.

Equipping the new perks, Mission Control Vest and Compression Plate, can accelerate your killstreak accumulation and enhance your survivability, thereby boosting your chances of securing a DNA Bomb.
