Because of Modern Warfare 2's new unlockable system, players hoping to use their favorite weapons might be at a loss on how to unlock them. While Modern Warfare 2 launched with a special edition that comes with most weapons unlocked, players who own the standard edition of Modern Warfare 2 will have to unlock these weapons the old-fashioned way.

For players looking to use the M16 in Modern Warfare 2 but don't know how to unlock it, look no further as this guide is for you.

How to unlock the M16 in Modern Warfare 2

Players looking to unlock the M16 will need to do a few things first. The first thing that should be done is equipping the M4, a weapon given all players at the start of the game. The more that players use this gun, different weapons get unlocked from that particular weapon tree. Leveling the M4 to level 15 will unlock the 556 Icarus.

After players unlock the 556 Icarus, equip this weapon and use it until level 12 is reached. Leveling the 556 Icarus to level 12 will unlock the M16.
