We’re used to getting a new Call of Duty every year, or every couple of years at least, and now its next outing the series is returning to a modern setting in the form of Modern Warfare 2. And with the new Call of Duty comes new weapons, so you might be wondering what kind of Modern Warfare 2 weapon customisation features will be included in the new shooter. Its guns galore in the new Call of Duty, so Modern Warfare 2 weapon customisation is an area you’re going to want to pay attention to if you want to build the best loadouts to take on the opposing team.

Modern Warfare 2 weapon customisation

Here are all the Modern Warfare 2 weapon customisation features that are in the latest Call of Duty game:

  • Attachments: barrel, muzzle, grip, laser, ammunition, magazine, optic, stock, and grip
  • Receiver: add attachments from other weapons in the same family
  • Weapon Blueprints: makes a pre-built and custom weapon
  • Weapon Vault: New for Modern Warfare 2, weapon Vaults are similar to Blueprints but allow you to customise specific parts of your weapon with the same theme (like a stock), rather than the whole thing
  • Camo: adds various camouflages to your weapon
  • Stickers: customises your weapon with various stickers
  • Weapon charms: attach to your weapon and dangles like a charm on a keychain for extra personality

The Gunsmith has been revamped for Modern Warfare 2 and consists of three key categories of customisation options, which include building your weapon’s loadout, customising your gun’s look, and its progression. There are even brand new Modern Warfare 2 mastery camos for you to earn.

The receiver is a new attachment introduced specifically for Modern Warfare 2 that can be unlocked as you level up whatever weapon the receiver belongs to. Once you’ve unlocked the receiver in a weapon’s progression path, you’ll be able to use attachments from another weapon in the same family.
