Crafting an Upgrade: How to Acquire and Utilize Uncommon Aether Tool Plans
The ability to enhance weapons to the uncommon rarity in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3’s Zombies mode hinges on obtaining the Uncommon Aether Tool Plans. Crafting this item is contingent upon fulfilling a particular mission’s criteria.
Obtaining the Plans
To lay hands on the Uncommon Aether Tool Plans, players must conquer the Act 1 Tier 3 mission named Saboteur, which stipulates the following objectives:
- Complete an Aether Extractor Contract.
- Neutralize 15 Mercenaries protecting the Extractors.
- Annihilate a reinforcement helicopter.
- Exfiltrate possessing the Uncommon Aether Tool Plans.
Methodology of Crafting
Once the plans are secured, players can proceed to the crafting phase. Here’s a structured approach:
- Locate the Aether Extractor contract scattered across the map.
- Disable three Aether Extractors before detonation, while contending with mercenary defense.
- The most challenging step involves destroying a reinforcement helicopter, necessitating a potent weapon or collective firepower.
Successful contract completion rewards players with the plans, which are then added to the inventory. To retain and activate the plans, players must ensure a successful exfiltration.
In-Game Crafting Instructions:
- Access the rucksack inventory.
- Enter the Schematic Crafting section.
- Navigate to the Aetherium tab and choose the green Uncommon Aether Tool.
Upon crafting, the item is transferred to the backpack and is ready for in-game activation. Note that post-crafting, a two-hour moratorium is imposed before another tool can be crafted.
