For other classes of explosives, see Lethal Grenade and Tactical Grenade.

Equipment is a classification of items appearing in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, Call of Duty: World at War, Call of Duty: Black Ops, Call of Duty: Black Ops II and Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, as well as making a brief appearance in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. Equipment includes items like grenades, C4 and other explosive devices (or even items to prevent being killed by explosions) that give the user an advantage. 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. It can also be picked up and re-positioned by the person who originally set it down in the first place

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.
