Warzone 2 and Modern Warfare 2 Season 3 Reloaded brings the new Throwing Star Lethal, perfect for quickly finishing off downed enemies. Here’s how to unlock the Throwing Star in Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2.
Players have been treated to plenty of new weapons in Warzone 2 and Modern Warfare 2 Season 3. The Cronen Squall quickly become one of the best guns in Al Mazrah, while the Intervention brought quickscoping back to Modern Warfare 2.
With the mid-season update set to drop on May 10, the devs have unveiled the Throwing Star, a brand-new Lethal suited to stealthy playstyles.
Here’s how to unlock Throwing Stars in Warzone 2 and Modern Warfare 2 Season 3 Reloaded.
How to unlock Throwing Stars in Modern Warfare 2 & Warzone 2
Players can unlock Throwing Stars by getting 50 Throwing Knife kills in either Warzone 2 or Modern Warfare 2 during Season 3 Reloaded. Unlike new weapons, these deadly throwables won’t be available in a bundle, so you’ll have to tick off the challenge to unlock them.
Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer is probably the easiest place to rack up Throwing Knife kills, thanks to the more close-quarters maps and the fact they’re a guaranteed one-hit kill. So, we recommend heading over to Shipment 24/7 to get this done quickly.
However, Warzone 2 players can also knock a fully-plated enemy with a hit to the head or torso, so it shouldn’t take too long to unlock the Throwing Stars no matter how you play.
While Throwing Knives are a popular Lethal in both games, the Season 3 Reloaded blog reveals that Throwing Stars are “faster, with a longer range and a higher stock” than their counterparts.
The devs also mentioned that they will require a “quick doubletap” or a headshot to earn a kill, so they will require greater accuracy and a faster trigger finger to make the most of them.
However, they do inflict a “wounding effect” on any enemy they hit without killing, draining their health and opening them up for a finishing blow.
