"Cover the battlefield with white smoke incendiary canisters that will weaken the enemy and burn any that wander too close."
— In-game description

The White Phosphorus is a Killstreak featured in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. It appears in the Campaign and in the Multiplayer mode as a Killstreak.


White Phosphorus payload is dropped in Fog of War to strike Barkov's depot.


In Multiplayer, once the target is designated, an Su-25 Grach (Frogfoot) flies in a straight line and drops several white phosphorus canisters on its path, obscuring the map with a white fog that can hinder vision for both teams. The canisters will burn for a period of time upon landing which can burn those who came too close and kill players with direct hits when being dropped. It functions similar to the Napalm Strike in Call of Duty: Black Ops.



  • The inclusion of White Phosphorus has been criticized and sparking controversies prior to the game's release, noting that its usage is restricted by international law. [1] [2]
  • In the Multiplayer Open Beta on the Killstreaks menu, the Su-25 shown for the art of the White Phosphorus killstreak had the Barkov's Forces logo on its tail. This is removed in the final version.
