A toxic Modern Warfare 2 trick will refresh a player’s Dead Silence but it comes at the cost of their team.

Toxicity and Call of Duty have gone hand in hand for a long time. The community has come a long way from the days of nuke boosting via Tactical Insertions in the original Modern Warfare 2, but that doesn’t mean that the playing field is more respectful nowadays.

In MW2 (2022), Dead Silence is a premium Field Upgrade to have, but its relatively short duration means knowing when to use it is crucial.

“Wait, I gotta team kill you,” he warned as he took his fellow pro down.

It’s worth noting that they’re playing Ranked Play, which means that Friendly Fire is enabled by default, but that one player can only collect a small number of team kills before the damage stops hurting their teammates and reflects back at themselves.

This should work in any mode with friendly fire enabled, but be warned that random teammates aren’t going to know what’s going on, so use this sparingly lest the entire lobby becomes a warzone.
