How to unlock Modern Warfare 2 mastery camo

There are four mastery camos to unlock in Modern Warfare 2. Here's what you need to do to unlock them:

  • Gold camo - Complete all base camo challenges for a weapon and the gold camo challenges.
  • Platinum camo - Complete all camo challenges in a weapon category and the platinum camo challenges.
  • Polyatomic / Element camo - Unlock Platinum camo for all weapon categories.
  • Orion camo - Unlock all camos for all weapons in the game.

It takes plenty of time to unlock the challenges as you need to rank up the weapons by using them. To do this as fast as possible, we recommend using a double weapon XP so you can get your hands on the coveted camos quicker.

What does the Modern Warfare 2 mastery camo look like?

Orion camo is an evolution of Damascus camo from 2019's Modern Warfare. The purples and blues return to create a striking visual on any gun you choose.

Unlock Polyatomic camo for all 51 weapons that appear when the game launches in order to get your hands on this camo.
