Perks and Killsteaks are new PvP mechanics introduced in Star Warfare 2: Payback.

Killstreaks are special abilities that can be activated during PvP battles once a player has reached a certain amount kills without dying. Only a maximum of three different Killstreaks can be selected at a time. Once a Killstreak has been used, it cannot be regained by reaching its count again. The user must die to be able to regain the Killstreak. The only exception is Corrosion Armor's ability, Previous Skill, that allows a player to use their last used Killstreak. When a Killstreak is used, a message is broadcasted to all other players in the match.
