Knock Out in CoD Modern Warfare 2 Explained

The objective of Knock Out in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is relatively straightforward since there are only two ways you can win this 6v6 battle: eliminate the opposing team or hold the package until the timer runs out in each round. If you want to try out the second technique, you’ll need to find the target waypoint, as shown here:

Once you get close enough, you can pick up the package and try your best to stay alive while holding it. But, when players do this interaction, they will have a target on their back, and enemies can easily spot them in any location on the map. With this in mind, it’s recommended to get the item at the ending stages of the round, so your team can have more of a chance to win.

You can also defend other players that are carrying the package, where you can keep track of them with a blue icon. Although Knock Out has no respawn mechanics, you can still be revived by your teammates and return the favor if the enemy takes them down. However, when you help fallen players, you will be in a vulnerable state, and the opposing side can use this time to eliminate you.

To potentially avoid getting killed while reviving, you can lay down and initiate this specific action to sneakily trick nearby foes.
