There are plenty of equipment items that can be used against you in Modern Warfare. From explosives like Claymores to Trophy Systems which can block incoming grenades, there are plenty of options at your enemy’s disposal. The good news is that you can turn these items against their owner by hacking them in the game. Hacking Equipment in Modern Warfare is tied to a perk, similarly to how hacking has worked in the past.
After the recent update in Modern Warfare the perk that you need to hack equipment is called Spotter. With the Spotter Perk you will be able to see enemy equipment, field upgrades, and killstreaks through walls, but that’s just one side of the equation. You can also hack enemy claymores, proximity mines, C4, and Trophy Systems in the game or spot them by aiming down sights.
Alright, so maybe you already knew you needed the Spotter Perk and you want to know how to do it in the game. Well, the first thing you’ll need is a piece of equipment to hack and a little bit of time. To hack any item you simply need to walk up to it and then interact with it. The Spotter Perk should give you both the ability easily find equipment to hack AND the ability to hack it.
Prior to the update which moved the hacking ability to the Spotter Perk, you previously needed to have EOD equipped in Perk Slot 1. Now you can simply equip the Spotter Perk in Perk Slot 3 to have both the ability to see, mark, and hack equipment.
