Call of Duty: Ghosts Odin Strike (K.E.M Strike) explained

The Call of Duty: Ghosts multiplayer section was finally revealed to the public a few days ago and so far everybody seems to love it. YouTubers and journalists have been busy playing the game for hours after the reveal so new information is slowly coming out.

One of the most interesting aspects of Modern Warfare 2 and Modern Warfare 3 were the hidden kill streaks. In Modern Warfare 2 it was the game ending Nuke while in it’s sequel Modern Warfare 3 the MOAB killed everyone in the enemy team if you managed to get a 25 gunstreak. Now in Call of Duty: Ghosts which is also developed by Infinity Ward we have the K.E.M or Odin Strike.


Now unlike previous games the Odin Strike does not require you to build up a 20+ killstreak, instead it’s obtainable via competition of field orders. According the people playing the game right now the K.E.M strike is only available on the map Strikezone, maybe in the final version it’ll be available on more maps. The Odin Strike like Modern Warfare 3’s MOAB kills the enemy team and because Ghosts features destructible environments also completely changes the look of the map. The lanes and overall structure of the map stays the same but visually everything is in ruins.

Also check out:

The field orders are mini objectives that you have to complete when you pick up a special briefcase during the match, these objectives include actions like “kill an enemy while prone” or “kill an enemy with your secondary”. There is only one field order that can be completed during the match so don’t expect more than one Odin Strike in a single match.

As far as gamemodes are concerned I’ve seen Odin Strikes on Team Deathmatch and the new mode called Cranked, so far it’s not been confirmed if the Odin Strike is mode specific but expect to find out soon. Well that’s all the information we have currently, but we’ll update this article as we find out more.
