You can achieve these playstyles in Modern Warfare 2 using the different Field Upgrades, which are nothing but pieces of Equipment and abilities that players can manually activate during matches to get a specific advantage. So, continue reading our guide on all Field Upgrades in Modern Warfare 2 as we explain everything you need to know.

How To Unlock Field Upgrades In Modern Warfare 2

Click to enlarge

You can unlock Field Upgrades in Modern Warfare 2 by levelling up your Rank in the game's Multiplayer mode. Once you reach a certain Rank, you will unlock the respective Field Upgrade. That said, you can level up your Rank in Modern Warfare 2 by playing the various multiplayer game modes and contributing towards their goal. 

For example, in Deathmatch, you get more XP when you get kills; in Capture mode, you can get XP by simply Capturing or Defending points A, B, and C, while getting XP for every kill. Just keep grinding multiplayer matches, and you will eventually unlock every Field Upgrade available in the game. 

This concludes our guide on all Lethal Equipment in Modern Warfare 2. For more Modern Warfare 2 guides, be sure to keep reading GGRecon.
