One of Warzone 2‘s often overlooked gameplay mechanics is the ability to fire weapons underwater. Unfortunately, many players don’t know that only a select number of weapons work underwater. Knowing these weapons and how to use them can be the difference between victory and loss. In this guide, we help you understand the latest mechanics by explaining how underwater combat works in Warzone 2.

How does the Aquatic Combat work in Warzone 2?

The recent inclusion of Aquatic Combat in the Warzone 2 is a game changer as it plays a pivotal role in the tactical aspect of the gameplay. Players who master the Aquatic Combat can navigate through waterways, rivers, and the open sea as part of their victory strategy. They can dive underneath to avoid enemy attacks or sneak up on their enemies and attack them.

They can also use boats to fight on rivers and waterways scattered around the map. Using the underwater swimming mechanism, they can easily fool their enemies and gain a tactical advantage by positioning. 

How to shoot underwater in Warzone 2

To shoot underwater in MW2, you must use a pistol, which is part of your secondary weapons and not primary. Players who use their primary weapons to shoot underwater won’t be able to fire and attack their enemies. Select a pistol as a secondary weapon to fire your gun underwater. It’s worth noting that the Overkill perk must be disabled to equip a pistol.

So, next time you are swimming under the water and encounter an enemy you want to shoot, remember to switch from your primary weapon to your secondary weapon to kill your foe and save yourself.

Other weapons you can use during Aquatic Combat in Warzone 2 are knives and melee weapons. As for the equipment, all the tactical and lethal items are useable.

Why can’t I fire my gun under the water in MW2?

If you can’t fire your gun when under the water in Warzone 2, you are likely using a primary weapon. Many players often forget to switch to their secondary weapon (pistol) during Aquatic Combats. Unfortunately, failure to do so exposes you to enemies who may kill you. Remember, to fire the gun under the water, use a pistol instead.

Tips for shooting underwater in Warzone 2?

Since there are limitations on what weapons can be fired underwater, gunfights under the waves can be quite intense. Most players struggle to dodge around while simultaneously trying to land multiple shots to take out their foe. We recommend practicing underwater combat a few times to become a pro. The more practice you have switching to your secondary weapon and firing at your foes, the higher your chances of winning.

Additionally, when you swim further down, your screen will eventually become blurry, and you’ll have difficulty seeing anything nearby. So avoid going further down to maintain a clear line of vision of your enemies.
