Why Gunsmithing is the future of Call of Duty’s gun customisation


Call of Duty has a long history of letting players trick out their multiplayer weapons, stretching all the way back to the original Modern Warfare.

Every firearm in the game can be adapted and modified in multiple ways, letting you tailor each weapon to perfectly suit your preferred playstyle.
