Finishing Moves are a special type of execution you can use in multiplayer matches of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. They’re a new addition to the series, so don’t be surprised if you’ve not heard of them before. Here’s how to pull off a Finishing Move in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare:

  • Sneak up behind an enemy.
  • Get close enough to perform a melee attack.
  • Hold down the melee button/key when the prompt appears.

As the above explains, Finishing Moves are a contextual action which can only be performed when behind an opponent. That means you won’t be using them in most of your fights online. Your best chance to use a Finishing Move is when you’ve carefully snuck behind a pesky sniper in Ground War who’s sitting in a window and not watching their back. Just remember to watch out for those claymores! Dead Silence and Ghost are godsends when it comes to finding a position in which to use a Finishing Move.

You must wait until you’re in melee range before performing the attack, and if they turn round as you start to press the button, you won’t perform a Finishing Move. If this does happen, curtail your shock and hit that melee button again to put them down with a second strike.

Now that you’ve learned how to use a Finishing Move it’s time to get out there and start practising, but before you do, why not check out one of the other Call of Duty: Modern Warfare guides linked above? There’s no harm in coming more prepared.
