Modern Warfare 2 weapon Platforms: How to unlock every gun in Season 1 Reloaded

Modern Warfare 2 guns are unlocked through weapon Platforms, so here’s how the new system works and how to unlock every weapon.

Modern Warfare 2 delivers over 50 weapons for players to enjoy, and a ton of them can only be unlocked through the new weapon Platform feature. Here’s a list of each weapon Platform that explains how to unlock every weapon in Modern Warfare 2 Season 1 Reloaded.

Modern Warfare 2 Season 1 Reloaded arrived with a new Raids mode and the return of a reimagined Shipment. Modern Warfare 2 offers a ton of weapons to unlock and level up, and even more camos to unlock for them.

Infinity Ward has reinvented how players will 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 1 Reloaded.

Modern Warfare 2 weapon Platforms explained

Modern Warfare 2 M4 weapon Platform

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.
