The Gunsmith system has received a makeover. The user interface now appears to be much cleaner and easier to navigate. Apart from the usual attachment changes fans have seen in previous titles like Optics, Magazine, Stock, Barell, Underbarell, Laser, Ammunition, and Muzzle, Gunsmith 2.0 will introduce a new customization option called the Receiver.

Once players unlock the Receiver slot for a weapon, it will allow them to access new guns in the same family. As featured in Infinity Ward's Twitter clip, the M4 seems like the base weapon. Upon unlocking the aforementioned slot for it, gamers can get the M16 as a new gun. Now, all the attachments available for M4 can also be applied to this rifle..

The M4 family contains not only M16 but other weapons that can be used as SMGs and DMRs as well. Each Receiver will also feature its own progression system. This can save time in some instances, as players won't have to unlock the same attachments for different guns in the same family.

The new Gunsmith system is much more detailed and offers in-depth customization like never before. It allows players to customize their weapons to the extent of even changing their types. While some members of the community think the new system is confusing, the majority of initial responses seem positive. Fans await the upcoming Call of Duty: Next event to learn more about Modern Warfare 2.
