Say I currently have a 5 kill streak. If I die, get revived by a medic, then proceed to get another kill, will I get a Combat Efficiency pin?

All right, the user has already selected an answer, but I need proof, you understand? PROOF! :) So, all you need is provide a demo showing that dying indeed resets a killstreak in order to get the bounty. – DrFish Feb 23 '11 at 12:22
Since i don't usually get a killstreak, and i don't usually record while playing, i will not be able to provide a demo right now. I'll just try to find an empty server and make a proof with some friends' help. – Lysarion Mar 2 '11 at 13:02

When you die, everything is reset, except equipment and ammo you were wearing, which are reset on regular respawn. Thus, your kill streak is reset.

I would be very surprised if killstreak is kept because even if revived you still get a death recorded into your profile, so from game's point of view reviving doesn't cancel death. Even C4 you planted disappears (it disappears exactly at the moment of reviving, not dying - just like after regular respawning). So reviving must be just a faster respawn option after death without ammo reset.

I would agree, even if I didn't check this in-game. It clearly makes sense. You don't deserve a pin if you die in the middle of the pin's requirements :) – LudoMC Feb 20 '11 at 19:25
has anyone tested this yet? – DrFish Feb 20 '11 at 23:52
