Was Weapon Tuning Removed From COD MW2 Ranked Play?

Are all the sliders gone?

Ranked Play

About one month into the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Ranked Play experience, most players are well aware of how strong weapon tuning really is. If you’re a player that is skipping the tuning process on your classes, then you’re missing out on the best stats, but you might not have to worry about that.

Many competitive players have been calling for the removal of weapon tuning for a long time due to how convoluted MW2 Ranked Play becomes. Having a weapon that was tuned better was a genuine advantage. You might see that you can’t use those sliders any longer, and we’ll discuss whether the feature was removed or not in this guide.

COD MW2 Ranked Play – Was Weapon Tuning Removed?

As of March 14, weapon tuning has been removed from the CDL ruleset and can no longer be used by any players on their loadouts. This comes as a surprise drop by Treyarch, who is in charge of the competitive playlist in Modern Warfare 2. Some of the additional changes could come on March 15 with Season 2 Reloaded but expect to say goodbye to tuning as soon as possible.

When you go into your loadouts in COD MW2 Ranked Play, you won’t see the option to tune any of your attachments anymore. This brings players and their loadouts to an even playing field, which is the same as every other Call of Duty ranked playlist from the past.

Along with the weapon tuning ban in the CDL ruleset, the Kastov 762 assault rifle was also removed. This is more of a head-scratcher, but if the pros decide something should be banned, then that typically transfers over to the CDL ruleset in Modern Warfare 2 as well.
