Equipment is a classification of items in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Call of Duty: Black Ops. Equipment includes items like grenadesC4 and other explosive devices (or even items to prevent being killed by explosions) that give the user an advantage. All equipment items fill the primary grenade slot in Modern Warfare 2, and only one equipment item can be used at a time. Equipment in Black Ops can also be picked up and re-positioned by the person who originally set it down in the first place. Equipment in Black Ops takes up a separate "Equipment" slot unlike in Modern Warfare 2 as there is a separate Lethal and Tactical Grenade slot.

Also, with the April 2011 patch for Call of Duty: Black Ops, the AIs in Combat Training can also use Equipment, such as Tactical Insertions and Camera Spikes.
