Once you’ve earned the best camo in MW2, you’ll want to know how to inspect your weapon so that you can adequately admire it in-game!

One of the most fun challenges in Modern Warfare 2 is racing to unlock all the camos for your weapons.

But to truly appreciate them, you’ll need to inspect them in-game. This will highlight the weapon and create a unique animation for each one. Here is how you can do it!

How to Inspect Your Weapon In-Game in Modern Warfare 2

To inspect your weapon in MW2, you’ll need to hold down the left arrow on the d-pad. If you’re using a keyboard and mouse, you’ll need to press down the “I” key.

This will prompt your operator to start a quick animation highlighting your weapon and inspecting its parts.

Most of the time, they’ll also remove the magazine and examine it. It’s a great way to learn more about your weapon and see how your camo looks.
