Modern Warfare 3 has a ton of features to keep you engaged. If it didn’t, the household name would be relatively hard to sell. To make things fresh and fun, you spend time in the overhauled Gunsmith for Modern Warfare 3. This is where you can change your weapons by obtaining Aftermarket Parts. These Aftermarket Parts are new to Modern Warfare 3, and this guide will explain how they work.
Modern Warfare 3: How do Aftermarket Parts work?
Aftermarket Parts are different from getting new attachments for your weapon. Once you level up a weapon fully, you’ll get access to Conversion Kits. So if there’s a gun you like using and have gotten accustomed to, you add life by changing how it works. For example, if you have a Rival-9 pistol, you could make it into a fully automatic SMG with Aftermarket Parts.
You’ll still be able to upgrade the weapon and get all the attachments. The attachments you unlock will be tailored to how the gun behaves after you’ve used a Conversion Kit. But depending on what weapon you have, you’ll start to earn Aftermarket Parts past a certain point. Unlike attachments, which are earned based on leveling up and gaining XP, Aftermarket Parts follow a different method. You’ll need to do certain challenges like play the Zombie Mode in Modern Warfare 3 to unlock Conversion Kits.
Note: You won’t be able to do the challenges until you’ve maxed out weapons that are a part of the Aftermarket Parts program.
The reason behind Aftermarket Parts
According to Sledgehammer Games, it’s a way to get new experiences with the same gun. You can find new ways to play and that can be done by using Aftermarket Parts. Instead of getting a whole new gun, you can invest in one that’s working for you, and then by the end, it’ll be something vastly different. Then, when more Conversion Kits get unlocked, you can take things even further.
