Modern Warfare 2 features an impressive selection of more than 70 weapons, with a significant number of them exclusively accessible through the Weapon Platform feature. Here’s a list of each weapon Platform that explains how to unlock every weapon in Modern Warfare 2 Season 6.

Season 6 of Modern Warfare 2 arrived on September 27, introducing exciting additions such as the Spawn Operator, a fresh lineup of weapons like the ISO 9mm SMG, TR-76 Geist AR, and Dual Kamas. These additions join the diverse array of weaponry available for players to level up and earn camos.

With Modern Warfare 2, Infinity Ward reinvented how players unlock their weapons, introducing the new Platforms feature. With some weapons being different versions of others, you’ll actually be leveling up certain weapons to unlock more.

Don’t worry if it sounds confusing, as we’ve got a full explanation of weapon Platforms and how to unlock every weapon in Modern Warfare 2 Season 6.

Modern Warfare 2 weapon Platforms explained

Modern Warfare 2’s Platform system allows for more customization than ever.

Modern Warfare 2’s new weapon Platform feature means that not every weapon is unlocked through a rank. You’ll actually need to progress through a weapon tree to unlock all of the guns within that Platform.

For example, to unlock weapons such as the FTAC Recon and 556 Icarus, you’ll need to hit at least Level 14 with the M4. Then, to unlock the M16, you’ll need to reach Level 14 with the 556 Icarus.

Certain attachments and camos will be available for the entirety of the Platform, making leveling up these weapons much quicker and easier.

We’re breaking down how to unlock every weapon in the game through weapon Platforms, as well as a list of the guns that are either in their own Platform or aren’t in one.
