Modern Warfare 2 brings a brand-new way to customize your loadout attachments with Weapon Tuning, here’s how it works and how to unlock it.

Modern Warfare 2 offers a heap of new content and features for Call of Duty players, from new game modes, Killstreaks, and Field Upgrades, to a revamped Gunsmith with Weapon Platforms.

In the multiplayer mode, players will be leveling up through Military Ranks prior to Season 1, which sees the launch of Warzone 2. As well as leveling up through the ranks, players will also be leveling up their favorite weapons.

Of course, leveling these weapons up will unlock new attachments, weapon platforms, and more. However, one feature that Activision have kept quiet until now is the Weapon Tuning system, but luckily we have all the details.

Here’s everything you need to know about Modern Warfare 2 Weapon Tuning, including how to unlock it.

Modern Warfare 2 Weapon Tuning explained

Weapon Tuning is a new system in Call of Duty that allows players to fully customize attachments with the “Tuning Menu.” In this menu, players will find a “radar graph” that represents the selected attachment’s stats.

Players can then use the two sliders on the left and bottom of the screen to tune the attachment to their favorable attributes such as Aim Walking Speed and Aim Down Sight Speed or Recoil Stabilization and Aiming Idle Stability.

Tuning the attachment towards either of the attributes will cause a loss on the other side, so make sure you “take great care during this process to find the tuning values that make your Attachment perform at peak efficiency.”

Activision are describing this new Weapon Tuning feature as the “end-game” level of Weapon Customization, and it will likely bring a lot more personalization and options for loadouts in Modern Warfare 2.

As stated in the Call of Duty blog, this new feature is set to become a “complete meta game-changer” with players rushing to figure out the best tuning for each attachment.

How to unlock Weapon Tuning in Modern Warfare 2

In order to unlock Weapon Tuning in Modern Warfare 2, players will need to reach Max Level with a “Gunsmithable Weapon.” This will grant players access to Weapon Tuning, which allows players to fully customize weapon attachments.

There will be a total of 27 Gunsmithable Weapon Platforms at launch and once this feature is unlocked, simply press the “Tune” button on tunable weapon attachments to start customizing.
