How to Unlock and Use Proximity Mines in COD Modern Warfare 2

Modern Warfare 2 proximity mine – The Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 2022 is a First-Person Shooter game published by Activision and developed by Infinity Ward. It is a sequel to Call of Duty Modern Warfare which first came out in 2019.

Now, it is common knowledge that COD games are famous for their “Weapon-feel”. But they are also famous for their huge collection of Lethal Equipments that players get to use to destroy their opponents.

In Modern Warfare 2, Proximity Mines are a kind of Lethal equipment that when you throw them to the ground, as the name suggests ‘proximity’, detonates if your enemy gets near to it.

An enemy’s survival chances are very low if they do so. It is one of the daily challenges that you need to get 3 eliminations using these mines. You will not be able to complete this right away. However, there is a way to do it. Here is a guide to help you with that.

To make the Proximity mines undetectable or harder to detect for the enemies, they can be hidden in the vicinity, and they will explode when an enemy comes in touch with it.

  1. You must first reach level 4 to unlock the custom load-outs, hence unlocking these mines. You can reach level 4 easily by completing the objectives and matches. 
  2. After activating the custom loadouts, head over there and select the Weapons tab. 
  3. Now, select the Multiplayer Loadout option. 
  4. Here now you can create custom loadouts. 
  5. So, go to the Lethal tab and select the Proximity Mine. 
  6. When you load into the game, you will automatically have one of them equipped.

How to get more than one Proximity Mine

If you want more Proximity Mines, to get an additional Proximity mine, equip the Resupply Bonus Perk from the Support Perk Pack. 

However, if you want a continuous supply of the Proximity Mines while you are on the field, get the Munitions Box Field Upgrade. 

How to use Proximity Mines

It is highly recommended to place the mines where you know there is going to be a lot of enemy activity. Therefore, some of them are :

  • Near entrances
  • Alleyways and narrow gaps (especially if they can’t go back due to it being a way road)
  • Natural bottleneck areas (there are a lot of them)

Keep an eye on the map, and you will find loads more.

If you need help getting your 3 eliminations with the Proximity Mines, try the domination mode. That pretty much sums up all that we had on how to Unlock and Use Proximity Mines in COD Modern Warfare 2.
