November 28, 2022: Modern Warfare 2 season 1 is underway. Scroll down to see a full list of Modern Warfare 2 guns available to use in multiplayer.

Players are on the hunt for the Modern Warfare 2 gun list. Infinity Ward's latest multiplayer experience features an extensive arsenal of weaponry to suit every style of play, meaning all players can make an impact over the course of a match.


The sequel to 2019's Modern Warfare 2 also introduces a brand-new weapon category for players to master alongside assault rifles (AR), submachine guns (SMG), and sniper rifles.

Before we take a closer look at the Modern Warfare 2 gun list, don't forget to check out our other guides showcasing the best Modern Warfare 2 perks and all of the Modern Warfare 2 maps appearing when multiplayer launches.

Modern Warfare 2 confirmed gun list

Following data miners managing to access the full multiplayer arsenal during the campaign's early access period, we know all of the guns and weapons arriving in multiplayer as soon as the servers are switched on. Here's the full weapon list.

Modern Warfare 2 assault rifle list 2022

  • Chimera (Arriving in Season 1 Reloaded)
  • Kastov 545
  • Kastov 762
  • Kastov 74u
  • Lachmann 556
  • M13B (Unlocked via DMZ)
  • M16
  • M4
  • STB 556
  • TAQ-56

As expected, there's a huge range of assault rifles to choose from in Modern Warfare 2 including three from the Kastov family. Some will recognise the Chimera as the Honey Badger from Call of Duty Ghosts which comes with an integrated suppressor.

Alongside the new arrivals, the classic M16 and M4 rifles return once again and there's a high chance they prove extremely popular.

Modern Warfare 2 SMG list 2022

  • Lachmann Sub
  • FSS Hurricane
  • VEL 46
  • Fennec 45
  • BAS-P
  • PDSW 528
  • MX9

There are numerous weapons that resemble other guns from the previous Call of Duty titles. We assume they've received a new name in order to avoid the usual dose of "Submachine Gun Charlie" in the game's patch notes. Either way, there's plenty on offer for those that want to get up close and personal with the opposition.

Modern Warfare 2 sniper rifle list 2022

  • LA-B 330
  • MCPR-300
  • Signal 50
  • SP-X 80
  • VICTUS XMR (Arriving in Season 1)

Modern Warfare 2's selection of snipers is perfect for those that want to deal damage from afar. With five powerful options to choose from, there's one to suit all styles of play.

Modern Warfare 2 battle rifle list 2022

  • TAQ-V
  • SO-14
  • Lachmann 762
  • FTAC Recon

Battle rifles are brand-new in Modern Warfare 2. Acting as a hybrid between an AR and sniper rifle, these rifles pack a deadly punch but their mobility is far from optimal.

Modern Warfare 2 marksman rifle list 2022

  • LM-S
  • Lockwood MK2
  • SA-B 50
  • TAQ-M
  • SP-R 208
  • EBR 14

Marksman rifles also act as an AR/sniper hybrid but lean more towards a sniper. Often featuring bolt-action or semi-automatic firing mechanisms, these weapons can take down opponents with a single bullet but in most cases, players often resort to an AR rather than one of these underrated weapons.


Modern Warfare 2 shotgun list 2022

  • Bryson 800
  • Expedite 12
  • Lockwood 300
  • Bryson 890

Shotguns excel in close-quarters combat thanks to their immense power. Ranging from double-barrel, semi-auto, or pump-action, Modern Warfare 2 features an impressive variety to choose from.

Modern Warfare 2 pistol list 2022

  • .50 GS
  • P890
  • X12
  • X13 Auto
  • Basilisk

Pistols are a great secondary weapon to use as part of a loadout. Some can deal with opponents in the blink of an eye thanks to their incredible fire rate while others can deal damage at longer distances.


Modern Warfare 2 launcher list 2022

  • RPG-7
  • PILA
  • JOKR

Modern Warfare 2 melee weapon list 2022

  • Combat Knife
  • Riot Shield

In certain scenarios, the likes of the combat knife and riot shield can prove useful. A swift swipe of a knife can take care of an opponent with ease while a riot shield can block any incoming gunfire.

That's all there is to know about the Modern Warfare 2 gun list. As the cycle progresses, we'll update the list with any new additions to the arsenal.
