Although plenty of focus sits on the guns in Modern Warfare 2, there are numerous Modern Warfare 2 attachments that allow players to customise any weapon in the arsenal to suit their style of play. With limitless options to choose from, finding the best ones to use is always a tricky task.

Attachments in Modern Warfare 2 include numerous categories including optics, stocks, barrels, and more. To add even more customisation to multiplayer, Infinity Ward has added the Reciever slot that gives players a chance to completely transform their weapon of choice.

The last category is new for this year. Receivers belong to specific Weapon Platforms that act as a baseline for a particular group of guns. Unlocking a Reciever unlocks a new weapon that's part of the Platform. All attachments unlocked before earning the Receiver will carry over to the new gun so there's no need to work your way from the bottom.
