Modern Warfare 3’s Aftermarket Parts

The gunsmith in Modern Warfare 3 functions almost like it does in MW2. Players still gain Weapon XP to unlock attachments for a specific weapon and its associated Weapons Platform and gain alternative weapon progression routes at launch. 

However, players can transform their designs using Aftermarket Parts for certain weapons that reach the maximum level. At launch, Modern Warfare 3 will feature several sets of Aftermarket Parts, which take the form of weapon Conversion Kits.

To access these kits, players must complete in-game challenges that become available once the supported weapon obtains the maximum level. After finishing that final challenge, the Conversion Kit is unlocked for MW3 and Warzone 2.0.

After completing the challenge, players can transform this belt-fed machine gun with the Bullpup Conversion Kit, which greatly increases the weapon’s mobility and handling, rate of fire, and recoil off the hip and when in Tac-Stance.

These Aftermarket Parts and conversion kits will help players build weapons according to their in-game playstyle. This will allow them to change the weapon’s mobility or stats and use it to their advantage in MW3 and Warzone 2.0.
