When Season 2 Reloaded went live in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, the weapon tuning mechanic was removed from use in Ranked Play entirely. You’ll no longer be able to change all the small stats on each piece of your loadout and players should only be able to utilize the standard attachments.
However, there still appears to be a way to use the weapon tuning mechanics in COD MW2 Ranked Play if you use a workaround. Tests seem to support that the method works, but it may not last much longer in Ranked. We’ll explain how to use it in Season 2 Reloaded so you can try it out yourself.
COD MW2 Ranked Play – How to Keep Weapon Tuning
Like so many other bugs or exploits in Modern Warfare 2, the method to continue tuning your weapons is to utilize the blueprint system in the game. You can’t use this blueprint method within the Ranked Play loadouts, though. Instead, you’ll need to head into the quickplay loadouts menu.
Once you’re in quickplay, open up the loadout that you want with a weapon such as the TAQ-56 or the Vaznev-9k. In this screen, you can pick your attachments and weapon tune them to the degree you had before the Season 2 Reloaded update. Make sure to save the weapon as a blueprint.

Head back to the Ranked Play menu and open up a new loadout. Select the weapon that you want and open up the menu with all of your available blueprints. The build you just made will be there and it should have the weapon tuning that you just applied. This may not work for long so try it while you can in COD MW2 or move on to a standard build.
