Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 thinks that most of the game’s gun attachments are actively making each weapon worse, and instead recommend going with no attachments.
Modern Warfare 2 has launched to record-breaking sales and seems to be positively received by players so far, but the community has a number of issues with the game like
- skill-based matchmaking
- aim assist
- lack of core features like Hardcore mode.
But the latest issue is the attachments for guns, and how they seem to make it much worse.
Modern Warfare 2’s Gunsmith lets players adjust most of the elements of their gun, including the stock, ammo, optics, muzzle, and more.
However, almost all attachments have positive and negative effects that make the player choose whether they want to add something to their gun but must take out the other element. One example of this is adding a sight for better aiming, but slowing down how fast you can aim down the sight
Although the game was supposed to offer some positive and negative effects on the weapon’s performance, players are reporting that the attachments simply aren’t worth adding at all. One of the most popular posts on the Modern Warfare 2 subreddit over the last week is one that calls out the attachments for gun performance.
One of the biggest problems that players are reporting right now is that almost all of the gun attachments negatively affect, like how long it takes to aim down the sights of a gun, which is obviously an essential part of winning a firefight.
One argument suggests that it’s so that players are now using new tuning systems to get change their gun in a more in-depth, but that was quickly rebuffed with proof that some tuning actually does nothing to all weapons.
That’s just one popular post on the subreddit right now, but there are tons of other players reporting the same issues and making memes about how useless attachments are, and how much effort it takes to unlock the ones that they actually want. It’s pretty much clear now that the game developers have to solve these issues so that more players can join to play the game.
