Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 has introduced a new Armory Unlocks system, adding an extra layer to the game’s progression. This system requires players to complete daily challenges to unlock various items like weapons, perks, killstreaks, and equipment. Unlike previous titles, where progression was more straightforward, this system locks essential items behind these challenges.
To efficiently unlock items, players should first understand that they get one point for each daily challenge completed, with a bonus challenge available for completing all three. The challenges refresh every 24 hours. Players can access the Armory Unlock menus once they reach level 25. In the Armory, there are tabs for different categories like Weapons, Perks, Equipment, etc. Players need to actively select an item as their unlock goal and can queue other items to follow.
A strategic approach to unlocking items is crucial. Prioritize essential items like weapons, perks, and killstreaks, and note how many points each item requires. For instance, the VTOL Jet killstreak costs 8 points, while the care package streak only costs 2. Additionally, players can unlock guns and equipment through the Zombies mode by successfully extracting items, saving unlock points for other important items.
However, some items might be bugged when unlocking through the Zombies mode, so persistence is key. This new system adds a significant grind to Modern Warfare 3, but with these strategies, players can navigate it more effectively and make the most of their gaming experience.
