The Secure Backpack and Scavenger Backpack are great parts of the new Season 3 of MW2 DMZ content which make looting much more refined and can help in coming out on top.

So, if you want to know how to obtain the Secure and Scavenger backpacks in the game, my guide will help you do just that.

How to get the Secure Backpack

You can get the Secure Backpack in MW2 DMZ from various loot caches around the map, especially from the Orange ones; but the easiest way to get them is through the new Barter system in Buy Stations.

You can get the Secure backpack by exchanging the following items:

  • 1x Electric Drill
  • 1x Gas Can
  • 1x Golden Skull

The Electric Drill and Gas Can are common items that can be found in a lot of places. But, the Golden Skull is an extremely rare item.

The secure backpack essentially secures items between multiple deployments. This means the non-Contraband and non-on-soldier items will not convert to XP after you've been extracted.

These will remain secure in your inventory even if you are eliminated in the DMZ.

How to get the Scavenger Backpack

Like the Secure Backpack, you can get the Scavenger Backpack in MW2 DMZ from loot caches around the map, but the easiest way is again through the Barter system in Buy Stations as well.

You can get the Scavenger backpack by exchanging the following items:

  • 1x Battery
  • 1x Canned Food
  • 2x Gun Cleaning Oil

The Scavenger Backpack takes out the third weapon slot found in medium and large backpacks and adds additional item slots. With the help of this, you will be able to carry a lot more rare and valuable items in the DMZ.
