"25 player killstreak earns a De-Atomizer Strike."
— In-game description.


Nuclear is a Legendary gun perk in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, found upon certain weapon variants. It allows the player to earn a De-Atomizer Strike once they reach a 25 killstreak. Players are unable to earn a De-Atomizer Strike with other scorestreaks.

Nuclear also has a similar effect in Zombies mode. Once the player kills 150 zombies without being downed, a Nuke will spawn, ready for the player to collect.
