You’re not alone if the new Gunsmith system of Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 Beta has got you feeling dizzy. After all, Activision and Infinity Ward are making a few profound changes to the Modern Warfare DNA.
Consequently, the developers have brought in an absurd amount of customization to each gun. Now you won’t be able to grind a single weapon to unlock all of its attachments. However, unlocking the attachments will make them available for other weapons in the same gun family.
To unlock attachments in Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 Beta, you need to level up your preferred gun by gathering kills and finishing online multiplayer matches in Warzone 2. By repeating this method, you’ll be able to unlock more attachments in the gun’s progression line.
Although this way you may unlock basic attachments, you won’t be able to max out the whole gun. Hence, here’s more about how to unlock attachments in Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 Beta.
Unlocking Every Attachment of a Gun in Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 Beta
As mentioned above, grinding a gun only helps you to unlock a few basic attachments. However, to unlock all the attachments of a gun in Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 Beta, you must grind multiple guns of the same family.
Tracking a gun’s progression line can help you monitor your progress. You can do so by navigating to customize your loadout, picking a gun, and moving from ‘Build Weapon’ to ‘Progression’ with the help of your mouse or R1/RB.
You can better understand how this system works by following the below example of how to unlock the red dot sight in Modern Warfare 2 Beta.
How to unlock the Cronen Mini Red Dot in Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 Beta?
For your understanding, assume that the red dot sight under focus is the Cronen Red Dot. This example is for the Tempus Armament gun family, which consists of the M4, FSS Hurricane and FTAC Recon.
You can unlock the Cronen Mini Red Dot in Modern Warfare 2 Beta by following the given approach.
- Collect kills and complete online battles in Warzone 2 to level up the M4 to level 13 and unlock the FTAC Recon.
- Grind with the FTAC Recon, a Battle Rifle, to reach level 16 and unlock the FSS Hurricane SMG.
- Lastly, push the FSS Hurricane to level 3 to unlock the Cronen Mini Red Dot.
Due to the game’s latest Receiver system, you can equip the unlocked red dot sight on all the guns of the family.
Furthermore, as you may notice, you must go through the hassle of leveling up three guns to unlock a simple attachment. Also, you must go through the whole process repeatedly if you want to unlock this attachment for other gun families.
