Modern Warfare 2 weapon stats: Damage, Time-To-Kill, ADS speed, and more

In-depth stats on all 39 primary weapons in Modern Warfare 2

Looking for weapon stats on every gun in Modern Warfare 2? It's always a very good idea to spend some time learning the stats, strengths, and limitations of each gun in any FPS game, and the same is true of Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, with its array of almost 40 highly customisable primary weapons.

If you've ever wondered exactly how much damage a headshot deals with an M4, or you want to know how many shots it takes with a Vel 46 to kill an enemy, you've come to the right place. Below you'll find our in-depth Modern Warfare 2 weapon stats tables, covering everything from damage and time-to-kill stats to ADS and movement speeds.
