Field Upgrades in Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 are an additional equipment piece or ability that requires manual activation to grant a specific advantage in or outside of combat.
In Multiplayer, a Field Upgrade is the final part of a Loadout and is usually unavailable at the start of a match. When a Field Upgrade is ready to use, its teal-colored meter at the bottom-right corner of the HUD fills – this indicates that it is available for deployment. Tactical use of Field Upgrades can turn the tide of battle for you or your team, and each one is tailored to a specific style of play.
Field Upgrades were designed with three common Operator architypes in mind: Aggressive Operators who thrive on fast action, Reactive Operators who roam and use tactical movements, and Defensive Operators who hold their positions and take overwatch.
