What's it all about? Why should you care? We'll break it all down for you for when you hop into Season 3 with your squad. It's time to go Oscar Mike into the world of Gunsmith Customs.
What is 'Call of Duty: Modern Warfare's Gunsmith Customs mode?
Gunsmith Customs is a mode that allows players to use blueprints in-game in Modern Warfare to create a unique weapon all their own. The weapon will come with individual strengths and weaknesses as well, and it can be changed further with modifiers and items players gather. It's a way to put together a weapon that feels truly "yours" in-game rather than going with what the game provides, and players love the customization options it brings. It's returning in Modern Warfare with Season 3.
Activision has confirmed in the past that it will be releasing new weapon blueprints in Warzone and Modern Warfare with Season 3 as well. There will be the assault rifle blueprint "Beefeater," handgun blueprint "Cerastes," and the sniper rifle blueprint "Witching Hour." Two new weapons will be added with customization options as well: the Renetti semi-automatic 9mm and the SKS, a semi-automatic carbine rifle. That's all in the patch notes, and it spells great news for players.
In addition to bringing back Gunsmith Customs, there are plenty of new maps, Operators, and the Quads mode for Warzone as well as Season 3 Trials. The Trials will come with four different events, with a Gun Course, Risky Parkour, Shooting Range, and Marksman Challenge. It's a great time to jump back into Modern Warfare if you haven't in some time, just from these new modes alone, and you're going to want to test them out with a customized gun. It's only natural to want to, of course.
So if you're a shooter fan, get ready to hop in with Season 3's Gunsmith Customs mode, where you'll be able to make any weapon feel more like your own. There are plenty of new challenges awaiting you, so just remember to have fun, whatever you decide to get up to within the massively popular online shooter.
