Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Guns
One of the most-anticipated video games of 2022 is here. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare® II was released October 28th.
The Infinity Ward title includes plenty of what loyal players love about the 19 other games in the top-selling COD franchise as well as the 20 or so other licensed spin-off titles, expansion packs, and add-ons like Battle Royale.
Modern Warfare® II is considered a sequel of Modern Warfare, a 2019 reboot/re-imagining of 2009’s Modern Warfare. It promises updated features and improvements like a new multiplayer map section, better mechanics for swimming and hanging from ledges, plus improved vehicle combat that lets players lean out a window to shoot or crawl onto the roof of a moving truck.
Early access and beta players tell us that another new game mode enhancement in Modern Warfare II is a better gunsmith system that makes it easier to use various attachments to enhance certain play styles, and a gun “tree” that gradually increases branches and unlocks various options, like higher damage bonuses for using certain gun groups and a certain attachment.
The new gunsmith feature also includes an in-game firing range where players can try different guns before heading out on missions.
Check Out Modern Warfare II Guns at Texas Gun Experience
While we all can’t directly go out and save the world from the Nazis, zombies, aliens, or the various terrorist groups/rogue nations in the COD worlds, these games do allow PlayStation players, Xbox series X players, and other console players to at least simulate the experience.
Good news, however! While you shouldn’t take on these campaigns IRL, you can at least try some of the guns through Texas Gun Experience.
The TGE Gamer Machine Gun Experience is perfect for Call of Duty fans who might have only fired a submachine gun or sniper rifle in a game but have always wondered what it would be like to pull the trigger of a machine gun. If you are looking for something different, try our World War II Machine Gun Experience or Modern Military Machine Gun Experience. The following weapons list shares some of the guns from the game that may be encountered here. (Fun fact: Due mostly to licensing reasons, Activision Blizzard and other video game publishers prefer to use generic or fictitious names for many of their different weapons, even if they look, sound, and act like specific brands or styles).

If positioned correctly, the ‘fire and forget’ missile is intended to connect with the top of the vehicle and explode downward, rather than directly hitting the front, which is usually better shielded. In an ideal setting, two people are required to operate one: someone to fire the missile and then keep guard during firing – including making sure allies are safe distance.
