Sometimes, you need a specific tool for the job, and in war, that’s no different. If you’re trying to be quiet, then you’ve always got the knife to rely on; if you’re killing from a distance, then you can always grab a sniper rifle, and if you find yourself in the middle of a firefight, then you can always grab a trusty assault rifle.
Sometimes, on the other hand, you need a big fricking launcher to blow the ever-loving hell out of everything within a five-mile radius and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has enough destructive power in that department to keep even the most hardened COD veteran happy.
Currently there are only four of these bad boys/girls available in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare but each one has its own charms as well as its drawbacks, so if you need to know which of these is going to be the weapon of mass destruction for you, then this guide is here to light the way in a fiery ball of death and explosions.
Best Launchers In Call of Duty: Modern Warfare
Anything that can put a crater in the side of the moon is always a good weapon to have to hand in the middle of a battlezone, but even though the PILA is just a devastating as the other launchers in this guide, it does come with one major flaw. You have to aim the thing. Whereas the remaining weapons here are pretty much point, shoot, forget about it, the PILA demands that you’re locked onto what you want to make vanish before you pull the trigger. Not one for the newbies among you.
Any RPG in an FPS is always guaranteed to be a weapon that you want to get your hands on. This is mainly down to the fact that if you’re faced with an overwhelming horde, baring down on your position, then a perfectly placed grenade from one of these can ruin a lot of peoples day all at once. The RPG-7 is a no-frills tool for a seemingly no-win situation and can get you out of any trouble you may find yourself in as quickly as you can click that trigger.
There’s nothing more infuriating than finding yourself pinned down by a group of enemies in an armored-vehicle. You can’t run because as soon as you step out of cover, they’re going to fill you with about a million bullets, You can’t stay hidden as they usually have some form of cannon on board that will make quick work of any cover you happen to be ducked behind. So what do you do? Well, if you have a STRELA-P in your loadout, then you should know the answer. It will lock onto any vehicle that’s causing you trouble and make it go bye-bye very quickly. Even better, it can also be fired from the hip as well.
If the STRELA-P is the second-best launcher in this guide, then you know that the JOKR must have something exceptional in its locker, and it does. The JOKR is a fire and forget weapon, meaning that you can let this bad boy/girl fly and get back on with your other killing while it does what it does best, exploring the living bejesus out of whatever it was you randomly pointed it at.
