CampaignEdit

In the campaign, the P90 is a rare weapon only used occasionally by the Russian Ultranationalists in the later levels of the game. It can be found most commonly in "Heat", "All Ghillied Up", and "Mile High Club", but can also appear on other levels of the game. Typically, the weapon is found unsuppressed and with iron sights. However, one can be found with a Suppressor and Red Dot Sight in "All Ghillied Up" labeled as "P90-SD".

MultiplayerEdit

In multiplayer, the P90 is unlocked at Level 40. It can be modified with a Suppressor, Red Dot Sight, or ACOG Scope, like all other submachine guns. The P90 has a 50 round magazine and a very high rate of fire. Due to its extremely large magazine, it is also the weapon able to carry the most maximum ammunition in the game, barring LMGs. It is a superior SMG at long range due to its low recoil and high rate of fire, especially when firing in short bursts. However, it is also the slowest-killing SMG at close range.

Old School Mode LocationsEdit

The P90 appears in Old School Mode with 100 ammunition per magazine, with 50 reserve ammo. This is the only Sub Machine Gun in Old School Mode to have 100 ammunition per magazine.

P90 Attachment Overview

CampaignEdit

The P90 can be found in the Campaign in "Loose Ends", "Just Like Old Times", "Contingency", "Of Their Own Accord", "Exodus", "Second Sun", "Cliffhanger", and "Whiskey Hotel". It is also found in the Special Ops missions in Sniper Fi and Estate Takedown.

MultiplayerEdit

The P90 is again available in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, but is unlocked in multiplayer much earlier, at Level 24. The P90 is nearly identical in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 as it was in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare.

The moderate recoil, high rate of fire and moderate damage make the P90 a very good choice at close range and even medium range. The high rate of fire makes hip-firing especially effective, as well as making up for the lower than average base damage. The weapon's iron sights may not suit everyone as they can seem bulky to some players but seem slimmer to Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare counterpart probably due to a more detailed weapon model. Among all the submachine guns in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, the Extended Mags attachment is perhaps achieved easiest by the P90, due to its large magazine size.

Weapon camouflage is visible on the back and front of the P90, as the magazine is not camouflaged as with its Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare counterpart, but easier to see when reloading, using Akimbo, or using a sight.

In Core gamemodes, the weapon can kill enemies in 4-5 hits without Stopping Power, 3-4 with the perk active, while in Hardcore, the P90 can take down targets in 1-2 shots, both under normal circumstances. This means it can be less effective than the UMP45, and consequently less used than the UMP's consistent 3-hit kill.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare: Mobilized features the P90 as one of the four submachine guns available in game, the others being the MP5, the MP7, and the Skorpion.

CampaignEdit

In the campaign, the P90 is used only by the SAS and USMC. It is a starting weapon in "Oil Rig Confrontation", "Winter Assault", and "Last Chance". The weapon always has an integrated Red Dot Sight but it is slightly misaligned: the real point of impact is slightly above the red dot. It has a slightly lower rate of fire than in the console versions, but has higher damage per bullet.

MultiplayerEdit

In multiplayer, the P90 is unlocked after getting 300 kills with the Coalition faction. It is the third weapon of the Coalition faction to be unlocked, following the AA-12 and preceding the M249 SAW. It has the same stats of its campaign counterpart but with slightly lower damage, and its Red Dot Sight is still misaligned.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3Edit

"With a whopping 50 rounds per magazine, the P90 decimates in close-range, multi-target combat. High damage, solid accuracy, a fast fire rate and good mobility all favor offensive actions against enemy strongholds."

w/ Suppressor

The P90 was first spotted in the reveal trailer of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, near a turnstile a British SAS soldier is vaulting over. The P90 was also seen shortly in the E3 demo of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. It is seen being used by the enemies in the mission "Mind the Gap", with or without a Silencer, Red Dot Sight or Holographic Sight. Spetsnaz soldiers use the P90 in "Black Tuesday". Spetsnaz soldiers also commonly use the P90 in "Scorched Earth". It also used by Makarov's bodyguards in "Dust to Dust". It has a high rate of fire and medium recoil.

MultiplayerEdit

The P90 is unlocked at Level 38 in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3's multiplayer. It has a moderately high rate of fire and fairly low recoil for a submachine gun. The P90's biggest strength, however, is its 50-round magazine, which allows players to take on multiple engagements without reloading and also grants the player 150 total rounds of ammunition, the most of any SMG.

The P90's magazine provides some tactical flexibility; for example, Rapid Fire lowers the kill speed and allows the P90 to compete better against faster firing SMG's since other SMG's require Extended Magazines to compete with the P90's capacity. Combining Rapid Fire with Extended Mags creates a close-medium range weapon capable of very large amounts of fire, add in Scavenger (especially the Pro version) and it has very high reserve ammo capability to compensate for the number of rounds available for firing.

  • Range - Unlocked at weapon level 9
  • Attachments - Unlocked at weapon level 12
  • Focus - Unlocked at weapon level 15
  • Melee - Unlocked at weapon level 21
  • Stability - Unlocked at weapon level 28

Survival ModeEdit

The P90 is available in Survival Mode at level 46 and costs $2000. Because of its large magazine size, the P90 is very effective in Survival Mode. In very close ranges, the P90 can kill a Juggernaut in less than one magazine, if most of the shots are to the head. Since it is so cheap and it packs power to kill lots of enemies with ease due to its high ammo it is extremely good value for money.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3: DefianceEdit

The P90 returns in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3: Defiance. Like in the previous game, it comes with an integrated Red Dot Sight.

Graphics ErrorEdit

The P90 suffers from a bug in the graphics system which causes it to produce extra bars off to the right side of the screen, glitching it out very oddly.

Call of Duty: GhostsEdit

The P90 makes a brief return in the mission "Clockwork". However, it is not usable. A pair of P90s appear as an automated turret towards the end of the mission.

TriviaEdit

GeneralEdit

  • It carries a non-functional flashlight on the side rail with a pressure switch going down to the trigger.
  • After cocking the P90, it's possible to hear a small click.
  • It is possible to see the caliber of the P90 uses in the Modern Warfare series on the side of the weapon, printed as, "5.7 x 28mm".

Call of Duty 4: Modern WarfareEdit

  • The P90's magazine can be camouflaged if it is equipped with a silencer.
  • The P90 will always have a laser sight on the left-side rail no matter what the attachment. It serves no purpose, other than as a cosmetic.
  • When a Red Dot Sight is attached, it is not mounted directly on the P90's rail, but onto an external rail that's attached to the P90 rail.
  • Having a P90 as a player's primary weapon increases their sprint duration by 75%, but this was patched on the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2Edit

  • The side of the magazine on the P90 says "Made By Infinity OC 1130."
  • The player's hands are dangerously close to the muzzle. This can be better seen in 3rd person.
  • In "Loose Ends", there is a P90 with a silencer and a Red Dot Sight, but the pick-up text only says "P90 silenced".
  • If using the P90 Akimbo the muzzle can only be seen on the right hand gun in first person.
  • Extended Mags has a unique benefit of increasing the sprint time to 7 seconds from the default 4 seconds, which is like adding a fourth perk resembling Marathon.
  • This version of the P90 has unique Picatinny-style rails on the side, near the hand grip. It is most easily seen in the Create-A-Class menu.
  • Extended Mags changes the ammo counter into the same style that LMG's use.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare: MobilizedEdit

  • Unlike the console versions of the Modern Warfare games, the weapon is exclusively used by friendly forces.
  • The dot on this weapon's built-in Red Dot Sight is misaligned.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3Edit

  • In the Create-a-Class image, the iron sights are removed from the top rail.
  • When turning the knob on the HAMR Scope, the select fire is in a different position.
  • The P90 in multiplayer has a slower rate of fire in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 than in the previous installments, but it also has higher max damage.
  • On the Wii version, the P90 seems to be wearing gold camo.
