What are weapon blueprints in Call of Duty: Warzone?

As per an Activision explainer:

'A weapon blueprint is variant of a weapon family within Warzone. Weapon blueprints have different names than the base weapon in that family, or other weapon blueprints– e.g., instead of the Model 680 or The Ejector, a Shotgun Alpha blueprint can be called the “1337 Skeet”. Blueprints also can have cosmetic differences and may come pre-equipped with attachments.

These attachments are given to you on this specific blueprint without needing to level up the weapon to earn them. This way you can utilize specific cool attachments before you earn them by leveling up. You can still earn all weapon attachments organically and swap out – or add – attachments to weapon blueprints that are earned organically through leveling up that weapon.

Some weapons within the Warzone appear as loot – usually, that of Rare quality or higher – and the name of which can be found either when viewing the weapon on the ground, or on the bottom right corner of the HUD above the weapon silhouette.'

So essentially, you'll be able to find guns of different rarities with the same underlying archetype. Think of it in a way similar to Fortnite's different coloured tiers of the same weapon.
