Activision has unveiled a new feature for the upcoming game Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 called Aftermarket Parts.
This feature allows players to unlock parts that completely transform a weapon, rather than just making minor adjustments to its statistics.
For example, the Carbine Kit can be applied to the Renetti pistol, transforming it into a submachine gun. This modification increases bullet velocity, range, rate of fire, and enables full-auto fire, but it reduces mobility, handling, and recoil control.
By adding a bullpup kit to a heavy LMG, players can make it lighter and shorter, greatly improving mobility while wielding it. And with an armbrace stock added to an Uzi, players can fire it akimbo, just like in the movies.
The developers have stated that this feature is meant to greatly expand playstyles, with some options being “absolute oddballs” that catch players off-guard and add a spectacle to the gameplay.
You can watch the video below to see an introduction to Aftermarket Parts:
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 will be released on November 10 for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC.

The highly anticipated multiplayer reveal will take place in less than 24 hours, and TechRaptor will provide coverage as soon as it happens.
