When a few bullets can drop even the most confident player, precision is the most valuable tool in any campaign mission or online lobby.
For players looking to move away from bombs and bullets and expand their stealthy toolkit in MW2, learning to perform a Finishing Move will help provide a new deadly option.
How To Do A Finishing Move in MW2
Once you’ve moved directly behind an opponent, hold down the melee button to perform a Finishing Move. If you’ve done it right, the move animation will trigger and instantly kill your opponent.
Bear in mind, it’s much easier to sneak directly behind AI enemies than it is real people in a deathmatch. Modern Warfare 2 will teach players to be constantly aware of their surroundings, and equipment like the Heartbeat Sensor only make your sneaking easier to detect.
Take advantage of decoys, flashbangs and other tools to get the drop on your enemies when the time is right, rather than hoping to constantly pull off finishing moves in MW2.
However, be careful as finishing moves can definitely make you vulnerable as when you’re in that animation, you can’t get out of it.
