Well, who doesn’t love a little spice to their weapons in shooter games, whether we talk about weapon skins or unlockable camos? For many years, the Call of Duty franchise has provided players with an abundance of free gun camo in their games. These camos are unlockable and require you to simply level up your guns or complete some challenges.
This guide will tell you how to obtain the unlockable camos in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 so that you can make your weapon truly your own.
What are Unlockable Camos in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II?
The unlockable camo in Call of Duty MW2 is weapon skins that are free to use and don’t require anything other than your time to obtain. These camos come in various categories, with most of them unlockable by simply levelling up the gun.
There are a few special cameos which are obtainable when you complete a set of challenges in the game in order to obtain them. The challenges are also not too tough; they are generally easy challenges like ‘get 100 headshots with P90‘ (P90 is used here as a reference, any other gun’s name can also be here).
Camos available in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II
The camos for the weapons are divided into two categories- based camos and sub camos. The camouflage camos are basically the first ten camos that are available to unlock for a gun. These don’t require any special challenges, you just have to play with the gun and level it up. Levelling up the gun will automatically unlock these camos. The camouflage camos available in the game are:
- Spray Paint
Once the base camo of the gun is unlocked, many other variations of that base camo become available to unlock. For example, the base Woodland camo for the AK-47 assault rifle unlocks at level 8. After unlocking it, you will have other variations of that camo and you will have to complete missions like “get 125 headshots with the Ak-47 to unlock”.
Mastery Camos in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II
The Mastery Camos as the name suggests are a sign of mastery of a weapon. These camos require completing some really time taking challenges. There are four mastery Camos in Modern Warfare 2- Gold, Platinum, Damascus and Obsidian.
These are the challenges which are required to be completed for obtaining the mastery of Camos:
- Gold– This is obtainable when you have unlocked every other camo for their gun, that completed all the camo challenges.
- Platinum– This is obtainable when you have unlocked Gold camouflage for the entire weapon class. So, if you want Platinum camouflage for your M4A1, you’ll need to rank up every other AR to the max level to get the Gold camo for each.
- Damascus– obtained when every single gun in the game has unlocked the Platinum camouflage.
- Obsidian– obtained by completing kill challenges with specific guns, for example, ‘get 20 kills in 250 different matches with the M4’. You can only start completing these missions once you’ve unlocked Gold Camo for that specific weapon.
All these different camos in the game set high standards for the players and the game, which requires a good amount of time and dedication, but if you are a Modern Warfare fan, these camos are worth the grind and would surely provide a feeling of satisfaction when you’ve finally obtained that camo you wanted. In my opinion, obtaining the Damascus camo would mean a lifetime of gaming completed on my side!
