Infinity Ward is set to reveal Modern Warfare 2’s multiplayer during its Call of Duty Next event on September 15, but Activision has shared a new video explaining the upcoming changes to this year’s Call of Duty’s Gunsmith feature.
The popular gunsmith feature Call of Duty appeared in Modern Warfare 2, originally introduced in Modern Warfare 2019, allowing players to customize their weapons with a variety of accessories tailored to their playstyle, but this new Gunsmith 2.0 offers a new way for players to unlock attachments and build their gear. . The full video of Gunsmith 2.0 can be seen below.
While Call of Duty: Vanguard gave players a whopping 10 attachments to include in their custom weapon build, Modern Warfare 2 brings back the maximum attachment limit by only allowing players to equip five attachments. However, it also adds a whole new layer of complexity with the gunsmith’s new “platform system”.
The Gunsmith Platform is described as weapons grouped together to form a family of combined weapons. Weapons on the same platform will participate in the unlocks, so players will unlock attachments for different weapons as they go along. Platforms go beyond the weapons class, for example, the weapon family can include attachments shared across the assault rifles, light machine guns, and submachine guns class.
In addition to the expected gun attachments such as the optic, handle and barrel, a new future attachment will also appear on the gunsmith. When players use a weapon in the game, they will unlock the new receiver attachment. Once the receiver of a gun is unlocked, another weapon will unlock in the same platform, including all accessories that the player has unlocked with the previous weapon.
While it feels more cumbersome and cumbersome than the previous two versions of Gunsmith, the developer says the Platform system was created to eliminate the milled weapon accessory from previous years. Players will no longer need to spend countless hours unlocking the same facility over and over to use it for different weapons.
