How to Get KEM Strike in "Call of Duty Ghosts"(New Nuke or MOAB)

Updated on January 7, 2019

KEM Strike in Call of Duty Ghosts Video Game?

Call of Duty Ghosts features a kill streak reward known as the K.E.M. Strike. This is not a set kill streak that you set in the menus in mutliplayer. The K.E.M. Strike is given to a player who gets 25 kills in a row without dying on a Call of Duty Ghosts mutliplayer match. This is similar to the tactical nuke in Modern Warfare 2 and the M.O.A.B. in Modern Warfare 3. The main difference is that it does not end the game, but it kills all the enemies on the other team one time. The K.E.M. Strike also changes the way some of the maps look. For example, on the "Strike Zone" map, buildings will be destroyed and line of sight will be different after using a K.E.M. strike.

Tips and Tricks for Getting a K.E.M. Strike in Call of Duty Ghosts

Obviously, you need to to survive at all costs in order to get a K.E.M. Strike. One death resets the kill streak. Note that only kills from your weapon, knife, and equipment count as a kill! Kills from kill streaks DO NOT COUNT.

Since kills do not count when using Assault or Support strike packages, it's much better to use the "Specialist strike package." The reason being is because the Specialist strike package allows you to receive more perks when you get kills consecutively. This will make you harder to kill over time because you will continue to receive more and more perks over time -- essentially making you unstoppable if you play smart in Call of Duty Ghosts.

Tips for Getting a K.E.M. Strike in Call of Duty Ghosts

Use Stealthy Perks

It is quite important that you do not make yourself a target when you are trying to get 25 kills in a row. Use stealthy perks that allow you to maneuver around the map without being noticed as easily.

Stealth Perks in Call of Duty Ghosts

  • Takedown
  • Blind Eye
  • Dead Silence
  • Incog
  • Off the Grid

Using a silencer is also highly recommended if you are planning to try to get a K.E.M. Strike. A silencer is quiet so enemy players will not hear you very well. Perhaps even more important, however, is that you do not appear on radar when firing a shot from your weapon when a silencer is equipped. Also, using a silencer is very important if you use the "Off the Gird" perk. Since that perk makes you invisible on radar to Sat Com and radar pings, it would be foolish to not use a silencer. Firing a weapon without a silencer would make that perk pointless because you would be giving away your position to other players in Call of Duty Ghosts multiplayer

How to Get a K.E.M. Strike in Call of Duty Ghosts

Avoid Open Areas or Buildings With Multiple Entrances

When trying to get 25 kills in a row to get a K.E.M. Strike, avoid any dangerous open areas or buildings with many exits and entrances. It will be extremely difficult to survive out in the open where snipers may see you or enemy players will pursue you.

Stick to the edges of the map or areas where enemies have a hard time spotting you, flanking you, and shooting you. Also make sure you do not stay in the exact same spot every time. Even if you are getting a lot of kills, it takes a while to get 25 kills. Staying in the exact same area for long periods will make enemies suspicious and they may come after you for revenge. Do not run-and-gun, just do not defend the same spot the entire match because you will endanger yourself eventually.

It may also be a good idea to set traps like planting a C4 or I.E.D. somewhere to help acquire more kills needed to get the K.E.M. Strike in Call of Duty Ghosts multiplayer.

Use Scavenger Perk for Ammo

Since it may take a while to get 25 kills in a row, you may want to use the scavenger perk. This will help prevent you from running out of ammo. Scavenging for enemy weapons is very dangerous, especially if you are trying to get a K.E.M. Strike in Call of Duty Ghosts.

Be Patient

Remember that it may take a while before you are able to get a K.E.M. Strike. It's not something that will happen every game in Call of Duty Ghosts. Not only simply because it takes a lot of kills, but the match may end before you reach the required amount of kills.

      I was really confused when I got mine, I didn't know it existed in Call of Duty: Ghosts. I honestly thought it was a mortar strike from a quad-kill I narrowly pulled off in a Search and Destroy match on Freefall.

      I wandered around the map for close to a minute before I realized I even had it.

      I got mine in a kill orders care package but i did get around 15 kills before I got the package delivered so not sure if its just random or that if you get loads of kills before using the care package it makes a difference? It wasn't my first package but I have only had this game for like 2 days

      I got one randomly out of a care package and that care package was the first one I had ever used so when I saw the grim reaper emblem over my care package( I didn't know what a K.E.M strike was at that time) I knew that it was going to be something that caused a lot of pain
