How To Get All Akimbo Grips In Modern Warfare 2
In Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Akimbo Grips allow you to handle guns in both hands at the same time. Nevertheless, these grips are not available by default, and the players have to make certain progressions in the game to attain them.
As soon as you have met all of the requirements, you can easily possess the Akimbo Grips. The ability to use two guns at the same time is not a first for the series. The first game in the Call of Duty series to have this feature was Call of Duty 2: Big Red One.
Ever since then, it has shown up in Modern Warfare 2 (2009) and every Call of Duty title after this one. Even though players get double the firepower through Akimbo, it takes away the players’ ability to aim down the sights.
How To Unlock All Akimbo Grips In Modern Warfare 2
Akimbo Grips are attachments for a few guns in Modern Warfare 2, which are X12, .50 GS, P890, and Basilisk. All of these guns are secondary weapons that lie under the “Handgun” category.
As it was previously stated, Akimbo gives players the ability to wield the same pistol in both their hands, resulting in more damage output in a close-quarter gunfight. However, there is a setback here which is that it takes away a player’s ability to aim and shoot at longer ranges.
Following is a list of all the Akimbo Grips and how you can unlock them for the pistols mentioned above:
X12 is usually considered the weapon beginners start off with in Warzone 2. The pistol is highly lethal and can easily cut through your enemies in only a few seconds. In order to unlock the X12, players must reach profile level 31.
Once they reach there, they should go ahead and rank up the pistol to Level 19 to attain the Akimbo Grip.
2) .50 GS
First of all, players are required to reach a profile level of 13 to unlock the .50 GS. Doing this will automatically unlock the .50 GS handgun. Once it is unlocked, you must play a couple of matches using it.
However, players should make sure that they are getting kills with it and gaining experience points, as they will need to get the .50 GS to Level 17. Accomplishing this will unlock the Akimbo Grip for the .50 GS.
The P890 pistol is available from the beginning of the game, and players don’t have to progress through the profile ranks in order to unlock it. Nevertheless, just like any other weapon in the game, players are required to level up to unlock the Akimbo attachment for it. Get the P890 to Level 26 to unlock it.
The Basilisk is actually a revolver and can be extremely deadly when placed in the right hands. Players are required to reach profile level 39 in order to unlock the Akimbo Grip. However, this might take some time.
That is why it is recommended to players that they utilize any unused Double Weapon XP token that they might possess to make sure that they progress quickly through the ranks.
