If you think back to Modern Warfare 2019, you’ll remember how amazing these guns were. They sounded and looked good, and the animators were really good at conveying the weight of these weapons to the player. It’s just something Infinity Ward has always been known to do well. So despite what anyone might say regarding the TTK, gates and maps (oh my god, please say they have Iimproved maps), you can rest assured that they have some great weapons in Modern Warfare 2. In fact, we’ve already seen a few of them in the beta. Here are the weapons that we can confirm will appear in Modern Warfare 2.

To note: Due to the way the Gunsmith works now, each weapon will come with a number of receivers that will change the caliber of the weapon and make it a brand new weapon. So each weapon you unlock represents a “family” of different weapons that you can potentially craft in the Gunsmith.

Every weapon in Modern Warfare 2

Here are the weapons in MW2, in class order. Many of these guns have been given fictitious names, so Activision doesn’t have to pay for official licenses, so we’ve added the name of the gun they’re trying to represent in parentheses.

Assault Rifles in Modern Warfare 2

Assault Rifles will be very powerful in this game, as it is a slower game that favors pre-face over aggressive SMG game. Here are the ARs in MW2:

  • Lachman-556 (HK33)
  • STB556 (AUGUST)
  • M4
  • M16
  • Kastov 762 (AK-47)
  • Kastov 74-U (AKS-74U)
  • Kastov 545 (AK-74)
  • TAQ-56 (SCAR-L)

Combat Shotguns in Modern Warfare 2

Combat Rifles are a brand new weapon category in MW2, and they’re essentially a cross between ARs and Marksman Rifles (which are also still in the game). Here they are:

  • TAQ-V (SCAR-H)
  • S0-14 (M14)
  • FTAC Recognition (the M4 in a higher caliber)
  • Lachman-762 (G3)

SMGs in Modern Warfare 2

SMGs don’t feel as powerful in this game for the reasons we mentioned above, it’s just a slower paced game than in recent years. Here are the subtitles:

  • Lachman Submarine (MP5)
  • MX9 (AUGUST Para)
  • FSS Hurricane (this is an M4 with a weird conversion to accept P90 style magazines)
  • Vaznev-9k (Vityaz-SN)
  • Minibak (PP19 Bizon)
  • PDSW 528 (P90)
  • Vel 46 (MP7)
  • Fennec 45 (Vector)

Shotguns in Modern Warfare 2

There are shotguns we’ve seen, and so far they don’t look broken, but we’ll wait to see how it is with all the best accessories:

  • Lockwood 300 (725)
  • Brison 800 (Mossburg 500)
  • Bryson 890 (Moscow 590)
  • Accelerate 12 (Benelli M4)

LMGs in Modern Warfare 2

LMGs are probably going to be a bit more popular than most years in CoD, but not by much. At least these LMGs certainly don’t feel too loud:

  • 556 Icarus (the M4 with a belt-fed receiver)
  • RPK
  • RAPP H (HK21)
  • SAKIN MG38 (M249)

Sniper Rifles in Modern Warfare 2

Marksman Rifles and Battle Rifles being in the same game might seem like a bit too much, but these weapons are really more akin to snipers, while the actual sniper class in MW2 is reserved for beefy anti-materiel rifles.

  • LM-S (PSG-1)
  • SP-R 208
  • EBR-14
  • SA-B 50
  • Lockwood MK2
  • TAQ-M (SCAR chambered in 6.5 Creedmoor)

Sniper Rifles in Modern Warfare 2

These weapons are the classic .50 caliber monstrosities that should shoot people no matter where you hit them:

  • MCPR-300 (SCAR chambered in .300 Win Mag)
  • Signals 50 (GM6 Lynx)
  • LA-B 330
  • SP-X 80

Melee weapons in Modern Warfare 2

Well, at launch, there’s only one so far:

Pistols in Modern Warfare 2

Pistols are used a lot because they are the only thing you can use when performing new actions like swimming Where hanging on the ledge. Fortunately, they are weak enough:

  • P890
  • X12 (Glock 17)
  • X13 Automatic (Glock 18)
  • .50GS (desert eagle)
  • Basil

Launchers in Modern Warfare 2

And finally, the return of some old and familiar launchers:

  • PILA (Mc. 153)
  • Strela-P
  • JOKR (Javelin)
  • Roleplayseven

That’s all there is to this aspect of Modern Warfare 2. If you want to jump into the game yourself to try out some of these weapons for yourself, you can find the best of them in our ranking which will be continuously updated. If you are not sure yet, read our Multiplayer review.
