A nuke in Call of Duty is essentially a complete wipe of the lobby, and the game’s end. If you achieve a nuke, you’ve managed to complete a great feat and also win your game.

Getting one, however, is difficult. You need to get 30 kills for a nuke in MW3, but not just any 30 kills will do it.

Only eliminations you acquire from your weapon or equipment count towards how many kills for a nuke in MW3.

Kills you get via other killstreaks, such as a chopper gunner, do not count towards the necessary number of eliminations.

If you’re trying to keep track of how many kills you have, you simply need to look at the bottom of your screen where your current kill streak is being tracked.
