Weapon Receivers System Explained

The new Weapons Reciever system puts many weapons under one platform. The platform acts as the primary weapon upon which the other weapons share attachments, including barrels, muzzle, and stock. For example, the Kastovia platform holds five weapons that branch out from the Kastov 762.

The weapons can be unlocked by leveling the pre-requisite weapons one by one. So, the weapon receivers system is specifically a branched-out system where the weapons remain interconnected as they share base attachments.

Although the new platform system is an innovative way to reduce weapon grind, it is very complex for new players to grasp. A few weapons in the game don’t have a receivers system. However, Infinity Ward aims to add more receivers with each seasonal update.
