Modern Warfare 3: How to get Heat Vision Kills

To get this type of kill, you must be playing during The Boys Supe Siege event that began on January 31 and will go till February 6. Next, you have to be playing on the Supe’d Up playlist to participate in the event. Once you’re in a match, the main goal is to find pickups that enemy players will drop when they’re downed. Treat this game mode as Kill Confirmed. So for every enemy you or a teammate takes down, a superpower ability will be available to use.

However, these abilities seem to act like Kill Streaks. If you manage to get an enemy that drops the Heat Vision ability, you just need to kill one enemy as it needs one Kill Streak to use. Others may need more kills like the Electrical Shock ability. Just like Kill Streaks, if you die, the streak resets and you’ll have to do it again. 

How to use Heat Vision

To use Homelander’s power once you have it, bring up your Kill Streak menu, and it’ll show you the four you have collected. Once it’s selected, you’ll get a prompt that allows you to use the ability. Then when you use it, the power remains until your next Kill Streak. So it’s worth your time to collect as many kills as you can. When get you a single kill using the Heat Vision power, you’ll earn a cool-looking Homelander Keep America Safe player card.
