New Gunsmith Changes How Weapon Progression Works

The Gunsmith has received a significant update in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 that essentially revamps the original Loadout creation tool from Modern Warfare (2019). Infinity Ward’s goal for the overhaul was to create a much more explorative weapon builder that reduces repetitiveness.

And that they have done, as a brand-new mechanic called Weapon Platforms has been introduced, and it fundamentally changes the way that weapon progression now works in the game. Weapon Platforms are best described as a collection of up to five weapons within the same manufacturer that shares a pool of attachments. This is designed to help streamline progression and customization so that you can seamlessly swap between multiple playstyles on select weapons.
