How to Unlock Guns in Modern Warfare 2

call of duty modern warfare 2 unlock guns and how gunsmith 2-0 works

You can unlock new guns in CoD Modern Warfare II using the gunsmith 2.0 feature of the game. The weapons in this game work as a platform of weapons. This is basically a family of weapons. The goal is to keep playing with a single weapon and leveling it up. This will allow you to unlock the Receiver for it.  And when you unlock the receiver for your first weapon, it will unlock the next weapon for you. The best part is the modifications you unlock for your first weapon, will also work on the new weapon.

For example, let us say you have FSS Hurricane. When you keep playing with it and increase its level to level 13 you unlock M16. So now you get to take over all your modifications from your FSS Hurricane and can use it on your M16.

Thus in order to unlock new guns in the game, you have to keep playing with the guns you have. As you level up it will automatically unlock the next gun in its family or platform.
