Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is bringing the fight back to the modern era.

After a couple of years in the past, CoD is moving from the cold war and World War II back into modern times with MW2, a sequel to 2019’s Modern Warfare. Captain Price, Soap, Ghost, and all of Task Force 141 are returning with all of the awesome tools of war of the modern era.

Equipment is a crucial part of any class in CoD. This includes anything from your classic stun grenades or semtex to new items like a drill that shoots explosives through walls or a portable decoy that inflates like a real soldier.

Here’s all of the current equipment in MW2, including tacticals, lethals, and Field Upgrades.
