CoD fans finally got some Modern Warfare 2 news on June 8 along with the worldwide reveal. Unfortunately, some in the community aren’t impressed with the Gunsmith details that have been revealed so far.
Fans finally have more details on the way in which Gunsmith will work in Modern Warfare 2, but unfortunately, some big players in the community such as JGOD and FaZe Jev aren’t too impressed.
The Gunsmith returns in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, but this time it has some new features that Activision details in their reveal blog.
As well as bringing the Firing Range back for players to test their loadouts before entering a match, MW2 will also introduce a new attachment tuning feature, which puts even more emphasis on gun customization.
This is a feature that FaZe Jev seems most concerned about, stating in a recent video that it “completely goes against what the f*** they were saying about keeping it simple.”
FaZe Jev feels the attachment tuning feature will actually complicate things further, making class setup customization “literally infinite,” as players can supposedly tune the weight and length of attachments and more.
JGOD also has concerns regarding the Gunsmith in Modern Warfare 2, tweeting that he disliked “the Confusion w/Gunsmith/CaC [Create a Class].”
The Warzone stats expert’s main dislike is that “we don’t have enough information about the gunsmith which is leading to confusion…Cant be worse than 10 attachment Vanguard LOL.”
It’s currently unclear exactly how this attachment tuning feature will impact a weapon’s performance, but it has the potential to make class setups a lot more complicated due to the number of possibilities.
Keep in mind that none of this is final and the Gunsmith will likely go through changes up until the game’s launch.

After months of leaks and rumors, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2’s release date was officially confirmed, with players getting to check in with Task Force 141 on October 28, 2022. But, players usually get to experience a portion of the multiplayer in beta ahead of launch.
Here’s how to play Modern Warfare 2‘s multiplayer beta, the release date, and if PlayStation players will still get early access following Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision Blizzard.

How to play Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer beta
Modern Warfare 2’s multiplayer beta will be open to all players, regardless of platform or whether you’ve pre-ordered the game. If you’re on Xbox, PlayStation, or PC, you just need to find the beta in your platform’s store and download it — it’ll be completely free.
However, PlayStation players will get at least five days of early access, and those who pre-order the game will get early access as well. Once the pre-order beta concludes, Modern Warfare 2’s multiplayer beta will be open to all players.
Modern Warfare 2 beta release date
The Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer beta will get underway on September 16 for those on PlayStation who preordered the game for two days, before it opens up to everyone else on the platform from September 18 to 20.
The following weekend, Xbox and PC owners who preordered Modern Warfare 2 will be able to hop in from September 22 to 23, while all PlayStation users will once again have access to the open beta.
Finally, from September 24 till 26, the Modern Warfare 2 open beta will open its doors to everyone regardless of platform. We’ve got a full recap of the beta dates below:
- September 16-17: PlayStation early access
- September 18-20: PlayStation open beta
- September 22-23: Xbox and PC early access, PlayStation open beta
- September 24-26: Open beta on all platforms
Why is Modern Warfare 2 beta on PlayStation first?
Although Microsoft are in the process of acquiring Activision Blizzard, the deal hasn’t gone through yet so Sony’s marketing deal with Call of Duty still stands — meaning Modern Warfare 2’s beta will hit PlayStation consoles first.
Thanks to this deal, PlayStation players have had early access to alphas and betas, exclusive modes, more create-a-class slots, and free cosmetics in Combat Packs. On June 8, Activision confirmed that PlayStation players would receive Modern Warfare 2’s beta at least five days earlier than any other platform.
Whether Xbox players will receive similar benefits when the acquisition goes through remains to be seen, but reports indicate that the PlayStation deal will remain for the next few CoD games.
