As the launch of Modern Warfare 2 nears, leaks on various elements of multiplayer keep appearing much to the excitement of fans waiting on Infinity Ward's next dose of information.

In addition to leaks on Killstreaks and Modern Warfare 2 maps, another leak reveals plenty of new additions to the arsenal alongside some familiar weapons from previous Modern Warfare games. With that said, is the PILA in Modern Warfare 2? Here's what we know.

What is the best Modern Warfare 2 PILA loadout?

With the PILA needing no attachments, the best loadout is determined by which secondary weapon you decide to use with it. Although the launcher packs a deadly punch thanks to its immense damage output, it's a one-trick pony compared to other weapons in the arsenal.

Alongside the PILA, we recommend using the Lachmann Sub SMG for some extra close-range damage and much-needed mobility. Check out the best Modern Warfare 2 Lachmann Sub loadout to use in our guide.

How to unlock PILA

The likelihood of the PILA featuring in a weapon family is slim, meaning the likely unlock method requires reaching a specific level. Simply play the game to reach the required level to unlock the launcher. We recommend using a double XP to reach the target as fast as possible.

PILA Call of Duty history

The PILA made its Call of Duty debut in 2019's Modern Warfare and made its way into Warzone in March 2020. They're the only two games it's featured in so far.

With 2022's Modern Warfare 2 acting as a sequel to 2019's Modern Warfare, it's not surprising to see the launcher return for a second time.

Some launchers are hit-and-miss in terms of performance but if you're looking for one that's a great all-rounder, we highly recommend using the PILA as part of a loadout.
