Here’s how to do finishing moves in Black Ops Cold War and Warzone.
Finishing Moves is a new execution animation, first added to Modern Warfare and continued in the Black Ops Cold War.
Each animation gives players a unique and sometimes Gary finisher to unheard. In execution animation, both players cannot stop the finisher until it is completed, or a player is killed by an enemy.
If you kill someone, we can’t force you not to steal the kill, but it might be worth watching the show (and the public embarrassment of the enemy) at the cost of some XP.
How to equip finishing moves in warzone
For Warzone, you will want to go to the Operator tab on the main menu. From here, select your preferred operator and press the customized operator key. (On PC it is X by default) In the rightmost tab, you will see a list of finishing moves.
How to Equip Finishing Moves in Black Ops Cold War
Surprisingly, the operator tab in the Black Ops Cold War does not have the same equipped system as the Warzone. You must navigate to the Weapons tab and select Finishing Moves to equip it.
Get more finishing moves
Finishing moves are available as part of buyable bundles at the Call of Duty store and are also included in the Season 1 Battle Pass.
Past finishing moves are available for modern warfare in the warzone and currently some black ops cold war finishing moves are not available in the warzone.
To see an example of one of the new finishing moves, take a look at YouTuber ShawnJGaming’s video. The finishing move starts at a 1:42 timestamp.
How to perform a finishing move
To execute a finishing move on an opponent, you’ll want to sneak up behind them (with any weapon), then hold down your melee button. If you have enough space and the enemy’s back is pointed, you will activate your finisher.
Note that finishing moves vary according to the enemy’s stance, so the finisher you complete on the enemy you are standing on will be slightly different than the enemy prone.
Now get on the field and embarrass some players!
