Modern Warfare 2 players discover easy one-shot trick to kill Juggernauts

juggernaut killstreak in modern warfare 2

Modern Warfare 2’s Juggernaut Killstreak takes a lot of effort to acquire, and players might need to proceed with caution after it was found that they can be taken out in just one hit.

We all know how destructive and devastating Killstreaks can be in CoD Modern Warfare 2. From the simple and effective act of highlighting the enemy’s position for a few seconds using a UAV to outright ending the game with a Nuke, they are immensely useful.

One that you don’t see very often though is the Juggernaut Killstreak as it requires 15 consecutive kills to obtain using weapons and Equipment, or the equivalent in Scorestreak points.

This takes a great deal of skill and patience to achieve, but if the new one-shot kill Juggernaut method is anything to go by, you might want to reconsider selecting it.

Reddit user Valerio93x shared a fascinating clip on the Modern Warfare 2 subreddit of a player, possibly themselves, picking up a fresh Juggernaut Killstreak and running around the game’s Embassy map with it fully equipped.

They went to take the A flag in Domination, and before they’d even really got to fire a round with the Juggernaut, they were suddenly wiped out in an instant.

The shocking killcam showed that a player guarding the flag merely blasted them away with a single shot from the Expedite 12 Shotgun.

One commenter hilariously replied: “Juggernaut from wish,” whereas another thought the player had been “scammed.”

Judging by the comments, it’s hard to tell if this was either a well-put-together Expedite 12 loadout that is literally capable of one-shotting a Juggernaut or if this was a bizarre one-off.
