When it comes to selecting a strong secondary weapon, launchers don't feature toward the top of the list as players attempt to build the best Modern Warfare 2 JOKR loadout to dominate multiplayer. With the launch of Modern Warfare 2 approaching, fans are waiting for Infinity Ward to share more information on what the next dose of multiplayer has in store.
This particular launcher heavily resembles the Javelin from 2009's Modern Warfare 2. Capable of locking onto a vehicle or a specific area of the map, the JOKR can deal huge amounts of damage during a match.
Before we take a closer look at the launcher, don't forget to check out our guides highlighting the best Modern Warfare 2 perks to use along with all of the Modern Warfare 2 maps making their way to multiplayer at launch.
What is the best Modern Warfare 2 JOKR loadout?
Alongside the JOKR, we recommend the trusty M4 assault rifle. Armed with a fast rate of fire and recoil that's easily controlled, it's the perfect weapon to deal mid-range damage and in scenarios where the JOKR is impossible to use.
The JOKR has no attachments so there's no way of improving any aspect of the launcher.
JOKR Call of Duty history
For those unfamiliar with the history of this particular launcher, the JOKR made its debut in 2009's Modern Warfare 2 as the Javelin. The launcher proved extremely popular, enabling players to deal with the Chopper Gunner and AC-130 Killstreaks that were incredibly difficult to destroy without a lock-on launcher or some well-placed bullets.
Since then, the launcher makes regular appearances in Modern Warfare titles. Most recently, it featured with the JOKR name in 2019's Modern Warfare, the prequel to Modern Warfare 2 launching in October 2022.
How to unlock JOKR in Modern Warfare 2
Unlocking the JOKR is an incredibly straightforward task. Simply reach Level 35 by playing the game to get your hands on the launcher. We recommend using a double XP token to speed up the process.
Is the JOKR good in Modern Warfare 2?
For those looking for a launcher to take care of vehicles in Ground War or to deal with large groups of opponents in regular six-versus-six action, the JOKR is the perfect tool for the job. However, its lengthy lock-on time does leave you vulnerable to any fast-moving opponents looking for an extra kill meaning timing is everything when it comes to achieving success with this particular launcher.
