As announced back at Call of Duty XP, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare multiplayer features a new weapon crafting feature which allows players to upgrade the rarity of their weapons. Higher rarity weapons have weapon perks that enhance the weapons.
In an interview with PlayStation LifeStyle, Jordan Hirsh, Infinity Ward’s Multiplayer Project Director, has revealed a few new details about it. As you play Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, you earn Salvage, the in-game crafting currency. Salvage earn rate is linked to your playtime.
You then visit the armory in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, where you can see all of the weapons and the rare weapons available. From there, if you have enough Salvage, you can select which weapons you want to upgrade. The more rare a weapon, the more it will cost in Salvage.
The crafting system is really actually pretty simple. While you play the game, you’re earning salvage, which is the crafting currency. So you’ll play the game. If you win, you’ll get a little bit more. It’s mostly tied to the amount of time you’ve played. So you’ll get that crafting currency, and then you’ll go into our armory, which will have a list of all of the base weapons, and all of the rare prototype weapons. So you can select the weapon you want to craft, hit a button, and craft it. (More rare weapons) will take more crafting currency to unlock.
In addition, Hirsh says that the game has over 80 different weapon options once all of the variants are counted. Hirsh confirmed that they have plans to add more weapons in the future, but did not expand on how weapons will be added to Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.
In the crafting system, right now I believe we have a little over 80 weapons. We have some plans to add some more in the future.
Call of Duty has been sharing some of the different weapons on social media over the past few weeks.
As of now, it is not confirmed whether or not Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare has Supply Drops.
