Game news Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2: Weapon customization takes over
As we approach the launch of the open beta, communication on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is accelerating. By the way, today the new weapon customization system was presented in detail.
A new environment for an even more customizable arsenal
If you remember correctly, you will surely remember the Gunsmith menu from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, the 2019 episode. This menu specifically allowed players to come and customize their favorite weapons from A to Z in multiplayer mode by changing the barrel, the stock or even the type of ammunition used. From now on, we learn that this functionality goes even further with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (2022).
It is in a long presentation video that Mary Evdjukian, Senior User Experience Designer and Ben Garnell, Principal Artist, explain to us as the brand new Gunsmith menu, titled Gunsmith 2.0., takes over.
First we learn that the entire menu skin has been revised and corrected to really give players the impression of being in an arsenal. Before customizing your weapon from A to Z, it will be possible, for example, to see it well installed in a trunk protected by a custom-made foam protection. In addition to this novelty, an additional customization option will be included: now it is possible to change the receiver of the weapon. In this way, a weapon can completely change weapon families.
As in previous games, leveling up a weapon unlocks attachments. In Modern Warfare II, these unlocks include receivers. Changing the receiver of a weapon completely changes the nature of the weapon; it is considered a “new” weapon when creating a loadout. Action
It is then possible to transform an M4 by changing its receiver so that it can behave like an M16 or even like an FSS Hurricane. The idea is to be able to use the different accessories of the first weapon on the second and vice versa. The other novelty is that these same receivers have their own level of progression.
