COD MW2 – What to know about mastery camos and how to get them

The multiplayer version of any Call of Duty game has always been a big draw and the same is the case this time around as well for MW2. You will have to battle it out with players from all regions of the world and a carefully thought-out camo can really help you carve your own niche in the battles.

Moreover, you can also show off your supreme abilities by knowing your weaponry which is always a nice touch.

The game presents a total of four mastery camos in MW2 which presents a variety of options for players to style their weapons. You have a good array of choices in order to design your weapons for multiplayer battles.

Of course, every category has a different set of requirements that you will have to fulfill in order to unlock the particular camo sets for your weapons. Since the game is not been fully released, the kind of weapons you will need and their unlock details are not out in public yet.

However, the information regarding the four mastery camos in MW2 is already in the public domain, and here’s what they entail:

  • Gold camo: You will have to finish every camo challenge in order to get a weapon.
  • Platinum camo: Reach full completion for all challenges in a particular category of weapons.
  • Polyatomic/Element camo: You have to get to Diamond camo level for each category of weapons present.
  • Orion camo: The final stage is where you get all camos for every weapon in the full game.

The major thing to know about all of the camos is patience. As mentioned above, the gold and platinum levels will take time as you make your way through the game.

The Diamond camo is kept a surprise so far, which means more information will only be known once the full game is released. Coming to the Orion camo, again, it will take quite a significant period of time to unlock this as the progression is not very quick in these particular areas.

There are specific camo challenges for each category of mastery camos, and we already know the ones for the gold and platinum categories. Therefore, you can find the challenges needed to earn camos of those categories below for many of the weapons segments present in the game.
