Weapon inspection has slowly become a staple throughout the Call of Duty franchise. This mechanic allows you to check out your weapon and see the cool skin you have on it, or just see the specs on your weapon in real-time. Unfortunately, the mechanic was not introduced in Call of Duty: Vanguard until the release of Season 2. That will not be the case in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. With the release of the game on the horizon, and Call of Duty Next featuring a full multiplayer reveal, here is how to inspect your weapons in Call of Duty, Modern Warfare 2.
