If you've been engaging in the multiplayer massacre fun of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, then you might have found yourself pulling off some pretty spectacularly stealth-kills on unsuspecting victims. Curious if there's any rhyme or reason to those things? Well, yes. These are new combat finishers which have been introduced, and they're pretty badass. Been wondering how to do finishing moves in Modern Warfare? We've got the lowdown.

How to do Finishing Moves in Modern Warfare

So, let's get one thing clear. If you want to get a finishing move in Modern Warfare, which is something that's newly introduced with this version of the game, it's gonna play out in the following way:

  • Make sure you're behind and within striking range of your enemy
  • Get close and hold down the melee button when prompted
  • You have to do the above before they turn around
  • If you do turn around, you can slash them for extra mess

As you might already have gathered, this rather intimate method of execution is only available when you're at melee range. It's not the easiest thing to get this close to another player, but it is possible if you're particularly smart with the perks that you're using, like Dead Silence. No one's going to hear you coming if you've got that attached to you, so you'll be able to go on a finishing move spree if you're motivated enough to do so. 

Now that you've got the lowdown on how to do finishing moves in Modern Warfare, it should be decently easy for you to accomplish them. They're not difficult to position for as long as you reckon you can keep your map-navigating a secret, so smart perk selection will probably take you increasingly far in this particular game of cat and mouse.
