How to get Spinel Husk Camo in MW3 fast with our 5 ways

Get enough Golden Ivory camos in a weapon category and complete the Spinel Husk Camo Challenge to unlock it for a weapon in MW3. This challenge is usually to get 300 zombie kills with the specific Pack-A-Punch weapon. The number of Golden Ivory camos to earn depends on the number of weapons in a particular category. Note that the Spinel Husk camo is the second tier of Completionist Camos for returning MW2 and Warzone players. This means that you need to know how to get Golden Ivory camos in MW3 to proceed.

These are the main objectives to get the Spinel Husk camo:

  • A target number of Golden Ivory camos in a weapon category (Assault Rifles, SMGs, etc.)
  • Spinel Husk challenge, usually 300 zombie kills with a Pack-A-Punch weapon

It’s okay to fail a Zombies run while pursuing this challenge

Unlike the Golden Ivory camo, you don’t need to make an exfil for the kills to count towards the Spinel Husk challenge. But if you want to retain the weapon, it’s usually a good idea to exfil when it’s safe.

And here are some tricks to quickly get the Spinel Husk Camo:

  • Use exfil points to farm zombie kills – Since you need a Pack-A-Punch weapon for this challenge, your weapon will deal solid damage against frail zombies. 
  • Toxic damage with Experimental Gas can clear crowded spaces – Lowering enemy health before using your weapon lets you kill hordes of enemies quickly. Just remember that you might lose kills to these other tools while working towards the challenge.
  • Work on finishing contracts, Infected Strongholds, and Aether Nests – These tasks let you find loads of zombies and mercenaries in tight spaces, perfect for getting kills. We think it’s worth destroying these as you find them. 
  • Higher weapon rarities and Ammo Mods are good offensive tools – These let you mow down large numbers of foes. The latter comes in multiple types: Brain Rot, Cryo Freeze, Dead Wire, Napalm Burst, and Shatter Blast.
  • Use exploits like the monkey bomb glitch and unlimited sentry bug in MW3Zombies – These can make earning camos a breeze. Note that this might get patched out.
