Modern Warfare 2 has been one of the most successful launches of Activision. In fact, in 2019, the developers polarised the Call of Duty community through the Gunsmith. This allowed the players to customise a maximum of 5 parts of a weapon. In fact, this helped them to find the perfect balance. Based on selected attachments, you can easily transform one gun into another.
We can credit Modern Warfare 2 for adding new customisation options to the original Gunsmith. A player can unlock new weapons from a base gun, using the platform feature. Attachment tuning allows us to fine-tune the attachments. Recently, a video was shared by Activision. This video details how the Gunsmith 2.0 was designed for Modern Warfare 2.
If you wish to know more about this video, then this article is the perfect stop for you. Keep reading this article to know more details about this issue.
Gunsmith 2.0 in Modern Warfare 2
All the information in the video is difficult to understand during your first watch. Therefore, this article will try to simplify things for you. Senior User Experience Designer, Mary Evdjukian attempted to explain the platforms and weapon receivers. According to Mary, the platform is like a “family of weapons”. She further stated that one can unlock another weapon after getting a receiver to unlock.
For instance, FTAC Recon, M4,556 Icarus, M16 and FSS Hurricane belong to the same weapon platform. By levelling up the M4, one can unlock the M16 receiver. In fact, in the M16, you will get all the M4 attachments that you unlocked earlier. As per Mary, this very feature cuts off the necessity of unlocking every single attachment separately.
In addition, there is yet another interesting system – the Weapon Vault. This particular system allows the players to change attachments on blueprint weapons. What is more interesting here is that, in this entire process, the aesthetic of the blueprint is not troubled. In fact, you can automatically unlock all 50 plus attachments for the M4 platform through the FJX Cinder Weapon Vault. This also preserves the same cinder theme for each attachment.
Reflecting on the Gunsmith 2.0 in Modern Warfare 2, Joel Emslie, Studio Art Director stated the main aim. According to Joel, the developers mainly aimed to create such a thing that would help the player to play swiftly. However, in the process, the visual would never be distorted.
