Along with the full list of supporting equipment, we also know how each individual item will work in Modern Warfare. Between upgrades and equipment, there’s a huge arsenal to choose from on the battlefield. Our equipment guide will outline everything you can expect from this year’s Call of Duty title.

Modern Warfare 2 – All Tactical Equipment and Field Upgrades

While they may take a back seat, Field Upgrades and Tactical Equipment are some of the most used tools within any Call of Duty game. There’s no doubt that Modern Warfare 2 will fall under the same umbrella. Some of them are active tools and others are passive buffs. Below you can find all of the tools within the game.

All Tactical Equipment in Modern Warfare 2

  • Spotter Scope – Spot and mark enemies from a distance.
  • Flash Grenade -Blind and deafen targets.
  • Stun Grenade – Slow’s victim’s movement and aiming.
