How do you unlock MW3 aftermarket parts? A new feature for Modern Warfare 3 aftermarket parts are modifications to your weapons that fundamentally change how they function. The primary focus of riddling your enemies with holes stays the same, but with aftermarket parts, you can alter how they do it, in quite a dramatic fashion.
The Modern Warfare 3 release date is here, and so far, there have been several stand-out weapons, with the Striker 45 sitting at the top of the pile. But what happens when MW3 aftermarket parts drop? Will we see another weapon take the top spot? Here are all the Modern Warfare 3 aftermarket parts we know of and how to unlock them.
Season 1 new aftermarket parts
With the release of season 1 comes a host of new aftermarket parts for you to further customize your favorite weapons. These parts can be attached to a variety of different weapons, which we have detailed below:
An underbarrel flamethrower for fights in enclosed spaces, where your enemy doesn’t have space to escape. The JAK Purifier is compatible with:
- Holger 556
- SVA 545
JAK Ettin Double Barrel kit
Adding an extra barrel to the AMR9 doubles your damage output, but adds a significant amount of recoil to the gun. The JAK Ettin Double Barrel kit is compatible with:
JAK Thunder LMG kit
A conversion kit for the Sidewinder battle rifle that adds a much larger ammo reserve, and a ramp in fire rate based on how long you hold down the trigger. The JAK Thunder LMG kit is compatible with:
A barrel attachment that significantly decreases recoil, while increasing your impact on the minimap while firing. They’ll know where you are, but you should be able to eliminate anyone who comes your way. The JAK BRB is compatible with nearly every assault rifle, submachine gun, battle rifle, marksman rifle, and sniper rifle.
A low-impact dot optic. Compatibility is currently unknown.
An optic designed for easy target acquisition and a clear sight picture. Compatibility is currently unknown.
JAK Signal Burst
A conversion kit designed for accuracy, converting an assault rifle’s full-auto firing mode with a four-round burst. The JAK Signal Burst is compatible with:
- Holger 556
JAK Beholder Rifle kit
Extends the handgun barrel, vastly improving range and recoil control, essentially turning it into a single-shot rifle. The JAK Beholder Rifle kit is compatible with:
JAK Headhunter Carbine Conversion
Extends range and exchanges full-auto fire rate for a three-round burst, so you can take on mid-range fights. The JAK Headhunter Carbine Conversion is compatible with:
All Modern Warfare 3 aftermarket parts
Aftermarket parts in Modern Warfare 3 are an additional layer of customization, they are complete conversation kits you can unlock for certain weapons that affect how the weapon performs, looks, and how you can further customize it.
These aftermarket parts are unlocked by ranking the gun to its maximum level. Once the gun has been maxed out, you can transform your weapon into something remarkably different.
Here is every aftermarket conversation in MW3:
Rennetti Handgun with Full-Auto Carbine
The Full-Auto Carbine aftermarket conversion for the Renetti transforms the handgun from a burst first secondary into a fully-equipped SMG. With a 3D printed frame surrounding the base body, the Full-Auto Carbine gives you additional customization options, such as a stock, and an underbarrel attachment.
Pulemyot LMG Jak Annihilator
The bullpup aftermarket conversion kit for the Pulemyot LMG transforms the weapon from a bulky, low-mobility weapon into a much more agile assault rifle. Shortening the barrel and lightening the main body of the LMG allows for a much higher movement speed, ADS speed, and primes the Pulemyot for the smaller MW3 maps like Rust.
MCW Jak Raven Kit
The Jak Raven Kit for the MCW replaces the gun’s body so it can fire .300 rounds, adding damage to an already formidable weapon. You lost recoil control, and some range, but this aftermarket conversation more than makes up for that with its close-range shredding capability.
MTZ 762 Jak Heretic Carbine Kit
This conversation for the MTZ 762 increases the rate of fire of the rifle, and the mobility of your operator, at the expense of damage and bullet velocity. One for mid to close-range encounters, this aftermarket part creates a mobile, CQB monster.
WSP 9 Broodmother 45 Kit
The Broodmother 45 kit is an interesting conversion that completely changes the WSP 9, taking it from a fast-firing SMG to a hard-hitting, almost assault rifle-like gun. Fire rate is slowed down but damage has been vastly increased while still maintaining the innate mobility you get from using an SMG.
DG 58 LSW Jak Nightshade Rifle Kit
The Jak Nightshade Rifle Kit completely transforms the DG 58 LSW, increasing the rate of fire to almost ludicrous proportions. The recoil control takes a huge hit as a result, but if you can land your shots, you’ll win any gunfight that comes your way.
MCW 6.8 Full-Auto Conversion
This full auto conversion takes what is already a devastating weapon and turns it up to 11. The recoil control can be a problem, but the fire rate isn’t too heavy, making it manageable. Land a few shots in quick succession with the MCW 6.8 and your enemies will rue the day they crossed your path.
Cor 45 XRK IP V2 Conversion Kit
While it may look like a ray gun from the future, this conversion kit for the Cor 45 is very real and absolutely devastating. The XRK kit adds an interesting firing mechanic whereby a round is fired when you press the trigger, and then another is loosed when you let go, meaning that you can unleash a barrage with a few clicks that nobody is coming back from.
