Field Upgrades return in Modern Warfare 2, and Infinity Ward revealed four of the new gadgets arriving in CoD 2022’s multiplayer. Here’s everything you need to know about the Field Upgrades, including any leaked ones.
The developers detailed some of the brand-new gadgets that will be coming to CoD in 2022, and we also got new information about other Field Upgrades through a few Modern Warfare 2 leaks.
Here are all of the new Field Upgrades in Modern Warfare 2 and how they work.
Rainbow Six Siege players will be familiar with Modern Warfare 2‘s Tactical Camera Field Upgrade, and it might prove especially effective in the Siege-esque Prisoner Rescue mode.
Players can throw the Tactical Camera up on a wall and then can look through it to spy on the enemy. Players can throw multiple cameras around the map and cycle through them, pinging anything the camera sees.
These cameras will have a battery life so they won’t be around forever and will beep when an enemy walks in front of them.
Modern Warfare 2’s DDOS device is essentially the EMP from previous CoD games, disrupting nearby equipment and vehicles.

Anyone holding the DDOS Field Upgrade will receive a HUD pop-up informing them whether there’s nearby equipment or vehicles to hit. Any cars hit by the DDOS will stall, and the driver will need to follow a button prompt to restart the engine.
The final Field Upgrade confirmed for Modern Warfare 2 is the Inflatable Decoy which mimics an enemy soldier, distracting the enemy.
The Inflatable Decoy will rapidly inflate when an enemy walks by, auto-orientating towards them. Players can manually deploy the Decoy if they want, though.
Also, the Decoy will inflate into a crouched position if in a tight space and will mimic a swimming position if in water.
Modern Warfare 2 leaked Field Upgrades
Prominent data miner ‘Reality’ revealed the names of more Field Upgrades in the Modern Warfare II game files, including Battle Rage which was previously leaked and could be extremely OP.
Here are the leaked Modern Warfare 2 Field Upgrades:
- Radiation Blocker: Iodine Pills that help you avoid taking damage from radiation
- Battle Rage: Regenerates health, resists Tactical Equipment, and refreshes Tactical Sprint
- Sonar Pulse: No description available
- Sound Veil: No description available
- Stimpistol: No description available
It’s worth keeping in mind that these are just leaks, so this information should be taken with a grain of salt. That said, the images in Reality’s tweets have already been DMCA’d, so it’s possible that we could see these Field Upgrades in the game.

Modern Warfare 2 players spot real-life location for campaign mission
An attentive viewer managed to spot a real-life location from Modern Warfare 2’s campaign early access reveal.
It seems players might be visiting a real-life location during Modern Warfare 2’s campaign after a viewer noticed a familiar sight in the early access reveal trailer.
Modern Warfare 2 hype is beginning to heat up after official dates for the start of the multiplayer beta have been revealed. Fans of Call of Duty’s campaign mode also have a lot to look forward to, especially with Modern Warfare 2’s early access period available to players.
The campaign early access reveal trailer highlighted a ton of new information concerning characters, weapons, and the missions set to be involved, but it also showcased a real-life location that players could be heading to in Modern Warfare 2.
Infinity Ward gave players plenty of glimpses at the sights and sounds they’ll be able to visit during the Modern Warfare 2 campaign. While players were excited to discover that they’ll be able to play the campaign for a full week before Modern Warfare 2’s October 28 release date, they also noticed some familiar locations.
One viewer took to the Modern Warfare 2 subreddit to share that they noticed one mission could take place in Chicago. As the OP puts it, they’re from the Chicago area and they’re “happy to see” their “city get some representation.”
It turns out the Two Prudential Plaz building seen in the image above is what gave away the mission’s location.
Some players were already expecting Chicago to be a campaign location, but were happy that this practically confirms it: “Early promotional material showed a map of downtown Chicago, so it’s all but confirmed.”
In hilarious fashion, one comment actually claims that they could see the Chicago building they work in and admitted that the devs’ depiction is excellent:
“I immediately knew it was Chicago because I saw the office building I work in lol. They completely nailed it too. My building and the surrounding buildings around it are all accurate too. Good job Infinity Ward.”

New Sniper Rifles coming to Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 spotted in new trailer & screenshots
Call of Duty players have spotted a couple of the Sniper Rifles coming to both Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2.
Sniping is a staple of Call of Duty, and players are desperate to know what Sniper Rifles they’ll be using to quickscope in Modern Warfare 2’s multiplayer and snipe over distance in Warzone 2. Luckily, some gun buffs have spotted the upcoming Sniper rifles in the new trailer.
As we quickly approach Modern Warfare 2‘s October 28 launch, Infinity Ward are revealing more and more about the game. We’ve seen some campaign gameplay, but it’s not until September 15 that we’ll learn all about the multiplayer and Warzone 2.
However, alongside announcing that pre-orders grant early access to the campaign, the devs dropped a brand-new trailer and screenshots. This showed off some of the All Ghillied Up reimagining, but military buffs also spotted the brand-new Sniper Rifles coming to the game.
Modern Warfare 2 Sniper Rifles confirmed
CoD fans spotted that Captain Price is using the Barret MRAD in the screenshot from Modern Warfare 2‘s upcoming All Ghillied Up reimagining. Whether it will actually be called the Barret MRAD remains to be seen but the stock, bolt handle, and magazine housing are identical.
If Price is using this sniper to pick off targets at long range in the campaign, then it should be an excellent choice for Warzone 2.
Plus in the trailer, Soap is running the Remington MSR, which long-time Call of Duty fans will recognize from Modern Warfare 3. Some were quick to assume that Soap was holding the Intervention but no, it’s clearly the MSR.
The MSR was one of the best Sniper Rifles for quickscoping in MW3, so it could very well become the quickscoper’s choice.
