There are four Mastery Camos in Modern Warfare 2. These are: Gold, Platinum, a space-themed camo called Orion and a Polyatomic camo.
After a lot of leaks speculation, Activision finally announced these mastery camos officially – and detailed exactly how to get them, which we go into now – courtesy of a detailed blog post.
MW2 Mastery camos – how to get them
MW2 Mastery Camos are unlocked only for a specific weapon – and come in: Gold (above), Platinum, Polyatomic, and Orion, as confirmed by the Modern Warfare 2 blog post.
Gold mastery camo how to get
The Gold Camo Challenge for each weapon is available once all of its Base Camo Challenges done.
Platinum mastery camo how to get
The Platinum Camo Challenge for each weapon is available once the Gold Camo is unlocked across a minimum number of weapons in each category.
Polyatomic mastery camo how to get
The Polyatomic Camo Challenge for each weapon is available once the Platinum Camo is unlocked across a minimum of 51 weapons.
Orion Camo how to get
The Orion Camo is a reward for unlocking Polyatomic Camo across a minimum of 51 weapons. It is also automatically granted on every weapon that earns the Orion Camo past its minimum requirement.
The blog adds: “Each Mastery Camo is also tied to an additional challenge required for Weapon Mastery on each weapon, which can be done in parallel with the Camo Challenge journey.”
MW2 Mastery Challenge
After unlocking a Mastery Camo — Gold, Platinum, Polyatomic, and Orion (below) — on a weapon, you gain access to that weapon’s Mastery Challenge.
These involve earning a set number of kills with a weapon while a specific Mastery Weapon Camo is equipped.
Taking the M4 as an example:
- Gold Mastery Challenge: Get 100 Kills with Gold Camo equipped to the weapon.
- Platinum Mastery Challenge: Get 200 Kills with Platinum Camo equipped to the weapon.
- Polyatomic Mastery Challenge: Get 300 Kills with Polyatomic Camo equipped to the weapon.
- Orion Mastery Challenge: Get 400 Kills with Orion Camo equipped to the weapon.
Completing each Mastery Challenge on a weapon awards a new Calling Card and Emblem based on that weapon. Meanwhile, completing all four Mastery Challenges on a weapon unlocks a Weapon Charm based on that weapon.
In order to master every weapon, you need to unlock Orion on each one, then complete every Weapon Mastery Challenge. You can check out all the Modern Warfare 2 maps right here, too.
