How to Do Finishing Moves in Call of Duty Modern Warfare

You can pull off brutal finishing moves in the new Modern Warfare. Here’s how.

The new multiplayer for Modern Warfare 2019 is a much slower and decidedly tactical beast than recent iterations. It’s also completely brutal, as you can absolutely obliterate enemies with bespoke finishing moves. Read on to find out how.

How to Do a Finishing Move

Performing a Finishing Move in Call of Duty Modern Warfare is pretty simple. It also looks great, here’s how to do it:

  1. Make sure you sneak up behind an enemy undetected.
  2. Once you are behind them, press and hold R3/RS.
  3. A finishing move will trigger.

How to Sneak Up Behind Enemies Easily

One way to make sneaking up on an enemy, and ultimately performing a Finishing Move is to equip the Dead Silence perk. It silences your footsteps, and increases your movement speed somewhat, both great for flanking and finishing an enemy.
