With the game finally released worldwide, players are trying to find out what they’ll need to do to inspect their favorite weapons. Let’s dive right in, and find out what you’ll need to do to take a peek at your favorite gun in this fast-paced multiplayer shooter!

How To Inspect Your Weapon in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

In the newest entry into the series, you will be able to inspect your weapon by:

  • Pressing the “i/I” key on your Keyboard

What Do We Know About Inspecting Weapons in Modern Warfare 2?

With the large list of weapons available, it’s understandable why you would want to check them out. As you continue to push forward and unlock new skins and charms for your favorite weapons, taking a moment to check them out never hurts anyone.

While there are no competitive advantages to checking out your favorite firearm, you may be able to see some unique details. However, you will be completely defenseless until the animation has been completed, so make sure that you’re doing this only when you know that you’re safe.

Can You Inspect All Weapons?

No matter the gun you have in your possession, you’ll be able to inspect any of them. No matter if it’s your favorite pistol or a heavy machine gun, a quick press of a button and you’ll be able to see all of the intricate details that Infinity Ward has put into these weapons.

With the game looking and running as great as it does, you’ll also be happy to know that you’re able to play in 120hz mode on your console of choice. If you’re finding it hard to compete, you’ll also be able to turn off crossplay to play with just your console family of choice, as well!

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is available now on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC.
