If you are returning from Legacy Warzone, you already know how to execute enemies in style by performing a unique finisher. If you are jumping into Call of Duty: Warzone 2 for the first time, know that every operator in the game has a unique finishing move to kill downed enemies.
Just remember that while executions are flashy, they make you vulnerable to enemy fire for a few seconds. Your operator gets locked into a finishing animation until the execution is complete. You will not be able to move or fire your weapon during this time.
The following guide will tell you how to do a finishing move in Warzone 2.
How to execute in Warzone 2
There are two ways to do a finishing move and execute a player in Warzone 2. You can either execute enemies from behind or after they have been downed. The inputs are the same for both ways.
Get into position and hold down the melee button. This is R3 and V on a controller and keyboard by default respectively. Remember that you can always change your melee binds by going into settings.
Try sneaking up on enemies for executions by crouching instead of sprinting. You will make less noise and not alert enemies with your footstep audio. That being said, you can also take an enemy completely by surprise by sprinting behind them to do a finishing move.
If you get into a situation where you have no ammo or have a sidearm, try to get behind the enemy during a scuffle for an execution.
Enemy players in WZ2 are most likely jumping around trying to reload or take aim. Use that to your advantage by holding your melee button while positioning yourself on their sides.
Warzone 2 provides you with a lot of different finishing moves but you can only choose one before a match. Select an operator and then go into customization to select a finishing move.
Take note that you can execute as well as interrogate downed enemies to mark the entire enemy squad.
How to unlock Warzone 2 finishing moves
Warzone 2 provides you with many different finishing moves, but you can only choose one before the match. The best finisher in the game is Gravity Assist right now, and it’s a backbreaker.
Finishers can be bought or unlocked in different ways in Warzone 2. You can get these by completing various challenges, purchasing the battle pass, and bundles.
Unfortunately, there is no way to properly view a finisher in Warzone 2 unlike the original Warzone so you will have to take a gamble when buying a finisher.
Using the following method, you can select only one finishing move before a match in Warzone 2:
- Firstly, select an operator.
- Go into customization.
- Now choose a finishing move you like the most.
