We’re just 24 hours out from Call of Duty Next, but Activision is still drip-feeding us new information regarding Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer. Yesterday, Activision revealed the mini-map for a multiplayer map in MW2 in addition to revealing the PC requirements for the beta. Earlier today, the official Call of Duty Twitter account tweeted out a video explaining the new FJX Cinder Weapon Vault. Players might recall hearing about this if they pre-ordered the Vault Edition of MW2. Players who pre-ordered this edition gain access to an FJX Cinder weapon in both the upcoming beta and in the full game.
The FJX Cinder Weapon Vault is a completely new addition to the Call of Duty franchise; however, it does seem to fix a large issue that players have had in the past with multiplayer. Below, we explain what the FJX Cinder weapons are in Modern Warfare 2.
The FJX Cinder Weapon Vault in MW2
Introducing the FJX Cinder Weapon Vault.

As briefly explained in the video above, the FJX Cinder weapons are special blueprints that allow players to fully customize their guns. Every attachment for an FJX Cinder weapon has a similar design, meaning players can equip any attachment and still have the gun look as it was intended. In the past, weapon blueprints would only look like they were supposed to if players kept the same attachments equipped that came with the blueprint. Now, the FJX Cinder weapons solve that issue.
The first FJX Cinder weapon blueprint looks to be for the M4A1. If players pre-ordered the Vault Edition for the upcoming beta, they will receive immediate access to this blueprint. In addition to the gun itself, players will also unlock every single attachment for it; this particular gun has roughly 50 attachments. This gives players who pre-ordered the Vault Edition a huge advantage— they won’t have to level up the gun and manually unlock attachments.
When players equip their attachments, they will see the gun have the same color scheme and design throughout. No matter what attachments players equip, the gun will keep the same design. That’s the big selling point for the FJX Cinder Weapon Vault.
It’s unclear exactly how many weapons Infinity Ward is planning to add to the weapon vault or how players will go about acquiring the blueprints in the vault. It seems likely players will have to pay for them in some way, but they could also be included on a season’s Battle Pass as well. However, we can safely assume that different FJX Cinder designs and colors will arrive for various weapons after the launch of MW2 on Oct. 28.
Activision will presumably detail more about the FJX Cinder weapons tomorrow at Call of Duty Next, so stay tuned for that information.
