All the weapons, perks and more in Modern Warfare 3

2:30 PM on 09.02.2011

This list for all the weapons and perks in Modern Warfare 3 is comprised of everything I saw last night at Call of Duty XP. There's always the chance that these items can be removed -- or new ones introduced -- before the game launches this November. But for now, here's the breakdown of what I got a glance of.

New for each weapon is that you'll be given a proficiency option on top of your attachment options. I didn't have all the time in the world to write exactly which proficiency and attachments will be available for each weapon type, but know that most of them are seen in multiple weapon categories.
