The Call of Duty series is back again with its annual entry, with Infinity Ward taking the reins this time around. Partway through the story campaign, you’ll reach a furnace level where you’ll then have to face off against a Juggernaut enemy, who can be pretty damn tough to take down. Here’s how to beat the Juggernaut in Modern Warfare.
How to Beat the Juggernaut in Modern Warfare
First thing to note is that the Juggernaut only seems to take headshot damage in our experience. He might take minimal damage from body shots, but those seemed so inconsequential compared to how reliably we could flinch him with headshots that we’d recommend just sticking to headshots during this fight.
The Juggernaut can deal a massive amount of damage to you during the fight, but there’s a pretty easy way to deal with him once you get the right equipment. You’ll want to save all your regular and stun grenades for this fight (you can pick up some extras in the boss arena as well), and use those to stun him constantly, and shoot him during that window.
So the general strategy would be to chuck a grenade at the Juggernaut to stun him momentarily, then go for some quick and easy headshots to deal damage. Then, rinse and repeat until he goes down.
If you happen to miss a grenade, you can also back away and use the surrounding pipes and machinery for cover as you prepare your next grenade. There are tons of corners in the boss arena, so use those to your advantage while trying to avoid damage.
In addition to that, you can also pick up the .50 cal gun in the arena if your current weapons aren’t cutting it. Pair that with the grenade stun strategy, and you should be able to take him down fairly easily.
Time needed: 10 minutes.
To sum up, here’s how to beat the Juggernaut in Modern Warfare:
- Save your regular and stun grenades for the fight.
- Pick up the .50 cal gun in the arena if you need it.
- Throw a grenade at the Juggernaut to stun him, then start hitting him with headshots.
- Repeat the process till he goes down, and use the corners to take cover if you happen to miss a grenade and need to recover.
