For killstreaker eyes: Singularity is the freaking coolest hands down, Hypno-beam is my second favorite.

As for the sheens, I have Agonizing Emeralds on the top 3 weps I use the most (Medigun, Backscratcher and Degreaser) so that's an automatic vote right there. Second would probably have to be the Daffodil one mainly cause I like the color Tongue

I'm not crazy for them, but they are nice to have!

I don't know if that was intentional, but you posted the OP twice...

I really don't care about having killstreaks (because I rarely live long enough to get a streak going) but some of them do look nice.

My favorite effects are probably singularity and incinerator, with sheens Team Shine and Manndarin.
I guess I would hate Agonizing Emerald and Villainious  Violet (although I've noticed the latter looks good on weapons only).

Yeah, I think it was intentional so he could put something else in his second post.

To be honest, I'm so poor that I take any kind of pro killstreak I can get, and I barely ever get to see the effects on myself so I'm always impressed.  I voted for Flames and Singularity, but I didn't know what either looked like. @[email protected]  That Steam Community Guide with the visuals makes it awesome though, so  Noiice! to that and Noiice! to JiB for making the post.

Specialized I don't really notice a difference, but I like the color green.  But I think most all of them look nice.

I'm assuming the different effects have different prices, kind of like hats used to be in tiers from way back and cost different amount of refined?
