Infinity Ward, the developer of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, revealed an inside look at the Gunsmith 2.0 customization system, promising more options that are easier to unlock.

Gunsmith 2.0 is based on weapon platforms that include attachment families. There are still stocks, scopes, magazines, and other Call of Duty extras, but now there are receivers, which fundamentally change the type of weapon. And if you unlock a bunch of attachments for an assault rifle and then switch to an SMG within the same receiver family, for example, you can transfer all of those attachments to that SMG.

“Each of those shared attachments that you unlock is now cross-progressable and attachable onto another weapon in the same class,” a video from Infinity Ward explains. 

“This takes away from the grind of having to unlock every single attachment on each weapon every time you want to level up a weapon,” another designer adds.

“Depending on the attachment, it is either unlocked for all weapons within a Platform, or unlocked for all weapons in the entire game,” the developer added in a blog post(opens in new tab). “Expect reduced repetitiveness and reasonable challenges to unlock attachments and camouflage.”

This personalization strategy includes themed “Vaults” of cosmetics for customizing weapon blueprints. The FJX Cinder Vault, which is included with the game’s Vault Edition and provides unified scarlet flare for all possible attachments on a specific gun, such as the popular M4 shown in the video above, was given as an example. However, the fine print in Infinity Ward’s blog post specifically states that “Weapon Vault designs [are] limited to Weapon Vault contents at launch.” 

Furthermore, Modern Warfare 2 players will be able to test and inspect their custom weapons in-game via the new firing range, which should make it easier to compare different attachments side by side.
