The Ghost Recon: Future Soldier video game has introduced a new gameplay element called Gunsmith. It allows players to fully customize more than 50 different weapons, from inner parts such as gas tubes to external parts such as various scopes. It allows player to create unique weapon that fits him according to his/her play style. Stealthy players can always upgrade their weapons with sound suppressor and a heartbeat sensor, to always know nearby enemy positions and eliminate them silently or use long-range weaponry such as sniper rifles. A more action oriented players can upgrade machine guns with incendiary ammo and to create a "rain of fire". Every weapon can be modified in many ways so that it may suit the player best on the battlefield. Players may test their weapons on the firing range before committing to their choices.

The Gunsmith feature is also available via the Ghost Recon Network mobile app.

Customization OptionsEdit


Firing range

There are 11 groups of gun parts depending on the weapon type that can be customized. Some weapon types have their specific customization options (ex.: a shotgun can be upgraded with "Dragon's Breath" ammo, allowing to burn shot enemies). After customizations are made, the player can test them on a firing range before entering a mission. In single-player, advanced parts are unlocked by completing missions and in-mission achievements (called "challenges"). In multiplayer, players unlock weapons and earn credits as they advance the level of their character.
