On November 20, a user on a Modern Warfare 2 subreddit shared a surprising fact about a Tactical equipment option that many users underestimate. According to the Reddit user, Decoy Grenades increase players’ score per minute in Modern Warfare 2.

Decoy Grenades in Modern Warfare 2 should be carefully used because if players start using it in every match, eventually, they will get thrown into high SBMM matches with high-skill players. Harming their experience by getting destroyed by players with a higher K/D and skill.

Many players are still engaging in the Reddit post, sharing their opinions on the matter, and some are sharing tips to earn more XP in their matches and help level up weapons faster. A user even stated that XP earned from using the Decoy Grenade also counts towards weapon XP, so players should consider using it in their next matches.
