Selecting the best Modern Warfare 2 equipment is just as important as selecting a weapon to suit your style of play. In previous titles, players rely on everything ranging from frag grenades to throwing knives to make an impact in multiplayer matches.

With that said, find the best Modern Warfare 2 equipment in this guide but before we share the intel, be sure to check out our guide showcasing the Modern Warfare 2 maps.

What is the best Modern Warfare 2 equipment?

As of writing (September 15, 2022), the lethal and tactical equipment arriving in Modern Warfare 2 hasn't appeared.

Once the beta begins in mid-September, we will share the best pieces of lethal and tactical equipment to use as part of a loadout.

Modern Warfare 2 equipment list

Following Call of Duty Next, Infinity Ward has unveiled all of the lethal and tactical equipment available to use as part of a loadout in Modern Warfare 2.


Ranging from the simple frag grenade to a drill charge capable of eliminating enemies on the other side of a wall, there's plenty to choose from.

Lethal equipment

  • Frag grenade
  • Semtex
  • Drill charge
  • Proximity mine
  • C4
  • Molotov cocktail
  • Thermite
  • Throwing knife
  • Claymore

Tactical equipment

  • Spotter scope
  • Flash grenade
  • Stun grenade
  • Smoke grenade
  • Snapshot grenade
  • Heartbeat sensor
  • Stim
  • Decoy grenade
  • Gas grenade
  • Shock stick

The stim makes a return in Modern Warfare 2 alongside the usual pieces of equipment such as the flash, stun, and smoke grenade.

Arguably the most notable new arrival is the shock stick which is capable of electrocuting enemies as well as destroying equipment and disrupts vehicle function.

Modern Warfare 2 beta date

The beta for Modern Warfare 2 begins on September 16, 2022, with an exclusive weekend for PlayStation users. The beta opens up for PC and Xbox users on September 22, 2022 for the crossplay beta.

Throughout both weekends, players will have an opportunity to use a small selection of equipment that will appear in the full version of the game launching in October.
