How to use Inflatable Decoys against Riot Shields

Riot Shields already left a sour taste in the mouths of MW2 players. If players equipped the item and the enemy earned a VTOL killstreak, they became invincible. A Reddit user shared a way for players to get revenge on Riot Shield users, and all you need is an Inflatable Decoy.

Inflatable Decoys are a new Field Upgrade in Modern Warfare 2. When activated, a fake soldier appears, making it look like there is a real player. If you deploy an Inflatable Decoy right under the feet of a Riot Shield user, it will kill them.

The clever MW2 player shared a clip of using the Field Upgrade against someone using a Riot Shield.

One player responded, “That’s the best kill I’ve ever seen.”

A second user added, “This isn’t getting as much appreciation as it should, solid way to kill someone and a solid way to die.”

The next time you find yourself in a tight bind, try using an Inflatable Decoy as a last-ditch effort.
