Modern Warfare III — Start the camo grind with this intel

If you’re like many Call of Duty-ans, you might get right into the grind on November 10th. Not for the accolades or glory mind you, but for the shiny new camo you’ll be able to flaunt to your teammates and foes alike. The camo system in Call of Duty is one of it’s biggest accomplishments, and with carry forward from MWII there’s plenty to discuss. We’ve grabbed the intel from the Call of Duty Blog, check it out and ready up.

Part 1: Gain Experience in Gaming Excellence: Challenges

To further assist your Leveling up through the Military Ranks (and beyond during each of the forthcoming Seasons), Modern Warfare III includes two challenge systems: Daily Challenges and Career Challenges. A previous launch blog confirmed the six types of Challenges, while this blog dives a little deeper:

Both challenge systems are great sources of Player experience points (XP): Daily Challenges give thousands of XP every 24 hours, and Career Challenges set up milestones to work toward throughout your experiences across Modern Warfare III, Zombies, and Call of Duty®: Warzone™ (at Season 1), granting XP and Calling Cards upon completion.

Daily Challenges

Available in Multiplayer, Zombies, as well as in Call of Duty: Warzone at its launch, Daily Challenges are a set of three challenges that reset on a fixed schedule — see the in-game timer for details on how long you have to complete them.

In Multiplayer, the three Daily Challenges are from three distinct categories:

  • A general challenge that may not require much change in playstyle (e.g., get 7 headshots).
  • A weapon challenge that focuses on a specific weapon category (e.g., get 5 headshots with LMGs)
  • A special challenge that encourages exploration with specific conditions, Equipment, or Field Upgrades, (e.g., provide Ammo Resupplies to 5 players).

Career Challenges

In addition to Daily Challenges, expect an assortment of Multiplayer and Modern Warfare Zombies Career Challenges at launch.

Some of these, such as match wins and kills, will come naturally by simply playing the game. Others, such as earning kills with a specific weapon category or the use of Equipment may involve changing your playstyle.

Career Challenges have several milestone steps, which award XP. You can even continue pushing to fully complete a Career Challenge, which offers additional XP and a Calling Card.

Once Season 1 (and future seasons) become available, expect additional challenges unlocked at Prestige Level milestones that offer more difficult objectives and XP rewards. Expect intel on the Prestige system closer to Season 1.

More Ways to Unlock: Weekly Challenges and Armory Unlock Challenges

Weekly Challenges

Every week during the Pre-Season, and during each Season, a new set of Challenges availables. At launch, expect there to be seven Multiplayer and seven Zombies Weekly Challenges available every week. Expect something similar when Warzone launches with Season 1.

Every Weekly Challenge awards XP on completion. If you complete five Weekly Challenges for a week, you will unlock a special attachment (Aftermarket Part) or a weapon as a weekly reward. If you earn all Weekly Rewards in a Season, you unlock a Seasonal Cosmetic reward (a Camo, for example).

Armory Unlock Challenges

Armory Unlock Challenges are a new system that lets you unlock the Weapons, Equipment, Perks, Killstreaks, and Attachments that you want to utilize. This includes many attachments unlocked through Weapon Progression.

When you reach Level 25, expect to unlock the Armory Unlock Challenge System, and begin to progress and complete challenges, unlocking new items. There are a variety of items you can earn through Armory Unlock Challenges, which you can view in the Armory Unlocks Challenge Menu.

Armory Unlock Challenges are completed by Completing Daily Challenges. Each Daily Challenge completed earns you a point against your active Armory Unlock Challenge.

While you can continue to earn Armory Unlocks in order, you can also “Activate” any valid item. This will now be your Active Armory Unlock Challenge, and you will begin to earn points against it as you complete Daily and Bonus Challenges.

If you complete all your Daily Challenges, you unlock a Bonus Challenge that is unique to each game. Bonus Challenges can be completed infinitely: in Multiplayer, they require winning a match, in Zombies, they require completing Contracts.

If you change your mind mid-completion, don’t worry – progress against Armory Unlock Challenges is saved when you Activate a new Challenge.

Remember: If you see an item you want at the end of a Weapon’s Progression, then check the Challenges menu; you might be able to unlock it with an Armory Unlock Challenge!

Part 2: Cosmetic Customization: Weapon Camos

As with Modern Warfare II, you can change your weapon’s cosmetic appearance by adding a Camo, a Gun Screen, a Charm, a Decal, and up to three Stickers to your weapon. The rest of this article focuses on the hundreds of Camos available to unlock at launch in Modern Warfare III.

Weapon Camos: Overview

Prepare for a ramped-up Weapon Camo Mastery that integrates your legacy weaponry from Modern Warfare II and adds an impressive Camo grind for Multiplayer and a customized Zombies camo grind catering to the true masters of the completionist Camo craft!

First, let’s confirm the new sets of Weapon Camos in Modern Warfare III:

Base Camos (MP, MWZ)

Modern Warfare III introduces a magnificent selection of additional Weapon Camos for you to unlock, and all the Base camos – from either game – can be applied to any weapon in MWIII.

Brand New Camo Sets: There are 18 different sets of Modern Warfare III Weapon Camos (which you unlock by playing Multiplayer and Zombies with MWIII weaponry):

  • Confirmed Sets are: Poison Frogs, Graphical, Topographic, Glittery Flats, Retro, Neapolitan, Under the Microscope, High Contrast, Wavelength, Two Tone Brushstrokes, Perfect Symmetry, Psychedelics, Blur, Bold, Butterfly, Puzzle, Skeletal, and Glitch Milspec.

Returning Camo Sets (with New Variants): In addition, all 14 of the Modern Warfare II camo sets return:

  • Existing MP Camo sets carry forward from MWII (which you unlocked, or can continue to unlock in MWIII, using MWII weapons)
  • Plus, expect to double each MWII set of camos with new variants of existing Camo sets from MWII, which you unlock playing Zombies in MWIII with MWII weaponry. See below for more information.
  • Confirmed returning sets are: Spray Paint, Woodland, Digital, Dragon, Geometric, Fun, Foliage, Skulls, Tiger, Stripes, Reptile, Solid Colors, Classic, and Cliffside.

Completionist Camos (MP, MWZ, Mastery)

Modern Warfare III also introduces a total of 12 additional Completionist Camos to unlock (in three sets of four) as well as the four Completionist Camos from MWII. These have rules regarding which weapon they can be applied to, and sets of unlock criteria which are detailed later in this article. Before we detail the full complement of camos on offer, here are the confirmed Completionist Camos:

 Multiplayer: Carry Forward (above): Modern Warfare II Weapons: Gold, Platinum, Polyatomic*, Orion*.

Multiplayer (NEW, above): Modern Warfare III Weapons: Gilded, Forged, Priceless*, Interstellar*.

Zombies (NEW, above): Modern Warfare II Weapons: Golden Ivory, Spinel Husk, Arachnida*, Bioluminescent*.

Zombies (NEW, above): Modern Warfare III Weapons: Golden Enigma, Zircon Scale, Serpentinite*, Borealis*.

(*Denotes the camo is animated)

Need a deeper dive? Here’s how all of this breaks down:

Modern Warfare II Weapons: Multiplayer Camos (MP)

All of the individual Weapon Camos, Completionist Camos, and Weapon Mastery Challenges from Modern Warfare II carry forward into Modern Warfare III.

All Camos: With the exception of the MWII Completionist Camos (Gold, Platinum, Polyatomic, and Orion), every MWII Base Weapon Camo can be applied to any weapon in MWIII, no matter which game the weapon or Camo originated in. That means you can place a MWII base Camo onto a MWIII weapon, and vice versa, assuming weapon and Camo have been unlocked (examples are shown in the previous screenshot).

Modern Warfare II Completionist Camos: These can be placed only onto the MWII weapon you have unlocked the Camo for, as the four Completionist Camos are accessible only within the Customize > Camo Category Menu. MWII Completionist Camos cannot be placed onto MWIII weapons, or vice versa.

Example: MWII player with unlocked MWII weapons: If you’re a Modern Warfare II player with a number of individual Weapon Camos and Completionist camos unlocked, then those will Carry Forward into Modern Warfare III

Specific Weapon Example: Let’s assume you’ve unlocked some or all of the following M4 AR Camos in MWII (as shown above):

  • Specific Camos: The four specific M4 Camo Unlocks (Scales, Desert Hybrid, Dark Leaves, and New Urban).
  • Completionist Camos: The four M4 Mastery Camos that are also available for every MWII weapon (Gold, Platinum, Polyatomic, and Orion).
  • Weapon Mastery: The Gold, Platinum, Polyatomic, and Orion Mastery (Emblems and Calling Cards for each), and the Completionist Charm.

In this example, any and all unlocked content is Carried Forward into Modern Warfare III. Any content you haven’t unlocked becomes available to unlock within MWIII as well, so you can effectively continue your MWII grind into MWIII.

All Camo Challenges carry over from MWII to MWIII, so, for example, you still need to “Get 15 Kills from behind with the M4” to unlock the New Urban Camo (which, once unlocked, can be applied to the M4, or any other weapon from MWII or MWIII).

Modern Warfare III Weapons: Multiplayer Camos (MP)

MWIII Weapons — MP Individual Camos: Just like the MWII Multiplayer Weapon Camos, every MWIII weapon has up to four individual base Camos, all brand-new to MWIII, and each requires unlock challenges to obtain.

Camo Challenge Variation: In MWII, the base Camo challenges were relatively similar across the different weapon types. In MWIII, Base Camo challenges are unique to each weapon category. For example, individual SMGs will have a different set of base challenges compared to individual Shotguns, LMGs, and so on. This promotes variety in gameplay, and the challenges have been honed to better suit the playstyle of each weapon type.

Specific Weapon Example: Let’s explore this by leveling up the MCW, one of the new MWIII Assault Rifles (as shown above):

  • MCW Mastery Camos: As well as four specific Zombie Camos (detailed below), there are four MCW MP-related Base Camo Unlocks (Razor Feather, Skullflagration, Abyssal Fox, Menelaus Blue).
  • MCW Mastery Camos Unlock Criteria: Each of the four MCW Mastery Camos requires you to complete a Level challenge (e.g., “get the MCW to Level 12), as well as a Multiplayer-specific challenge (e.g., “Get 50 Kills while ADS with the MCW”).
  • Completionist Camos for MWIII Weapons: There are four additional brand-new Completionist Camos (Gilded, Forged, Priceless, Interstellar). The unlock criteria for these is detailed below.
  • Weapon Mastery: The Gilded, Forged, Priceless, and Interstellar Camos also have Weapon Mastery challenges, allowing you to claim Emblems and Calling Cards for each, as well as the Completionist Charm.

Modern Warfare III MP Weapon Camo Challenges: Summary

Expect the following additional Camos, on top of the existing base and Completionist MP Camos from MWII:

  • Over 140 new base Camos (examples above)
  • Four new Mastery (Completionist) Camos
  • Over 140 new Mastery Calling Cards and Emblems
  • 37 new Mastery Charms

Modern Warfare II and III Weapons: Zombies Camos (MWZ)

The Camo Challenges are only just getting started: Get ready for the biggest Zombies Camo grind of all time!

Sledgehammer Games and Treyarch have added an entirely new set of Camo Challenges in Modern Warfare III, related to both MWII and MWIII weaponry!

Whether you’re unlocking a MWII weapon for the first time, or you’ve claimed Multiplayer Weapon Mastery for every one of the 77 MWII weapons, you still have a sizeable challenge thanks to an incredible amount of Zombies Camo content across every available weapon in the game.

Let’s cover the MWII weapons first:

Modern Warfare II Weapons: Zombies Camos (MWZ)

MWII Weapons: MWZ Individual Camos: Every MWII has up to four individual Zombie Camos, all brand-new to MWIII, and each requiring unlock challenges to obtain.

Specific Weapon Example: Let’s return to the M4 from MWII (as shown above).

  • Specific Zombie Camos: As well as the four specific MP Camos (that can be unlocked in either game), there are four additional M4 Zombie Camo Unlocks (Rancid Venom, Dark Mist, Nightmare, and Fertilizer).
  • Specific Zombie Camos Unlock Criteria: For each of the four Zombie Camos specific to the M4, you need to complete a level challenge (e.g., “get the M4 to Level 19”, which you’re likely to have already completed if you leveled up the weapon previously), as well as a Zombies-specific challenge (e.g., “In Zombies, get 5 Mimic kills with the M4”).
  • Completionist Zombies Camos for MWII Weapons: There are four brand-new Completionist Camos as well (Golden Ivory, Spinel Husk, Arachnida, Bioluminescent). The unlock criteria for these is the same across all MWII weaponry, and is detailed below.
  • Weapon Mastery: The Golden Ivory, Spinel Husk, Arachnida, and Bioluminescent Mastery also have Weapon Mastery challenges, allowing you to claim Emblems and Calling Cards for each, as well as the Completionist Charm.

Modern Warfare III Weapons: Zombies Camos (MWZ)

MWIII Weapons: MWZ Individual Camos: Just like the MWIII Multiplayer Weapon Camos, every MWIII weapon also has up to four individual Zombie Camos, all brand-new to MWIII and each requiring unlock challenges to obtain.

Specific Weapon Example: Let’s explore this by leveling up the MCW, one of the new MWIII Assault Rifles (as shown above):

  • Specific Zombie Camos: As well as the four specific MP Camos, there are four MCW Zombie Camo Unlocks (Wyvern, Vehement Rage, Tempest Shards, Toxic Spots).
  • Specific Zombie Camos Unlock Criteria: For each of the four Zombie Camos specific to the MCW, you need to complete a level challenge (e.g., “get the MCW to Level 19), as well as a Zombies-specific challenge (e.g., “In Zombies, get 250 Hipfire Kills with the MCW”).
  • Completionist Zombies Camos for MWIII Weapons: There are four additional brand-new Completionist Camos (Golden Enigma, Zircon Scale, Serpentinite, Borealis). The unlock criteria for these is detailed below.
  • Weapon Mastery: The Golden Enigma, Zircon Scale, Serpentinite, and Borealis Camos also have Weapon Mastery challenges, allowing you to claim Emblems and Calling Cards for each, as well as the Completionist Charm.

Modern Warfare III Zombie Weapon Camo Challenges: Summary

Expect the following additional Camos, which include Camo challenges for all 114 weapons across MWII and MWIII:

  • Over 400 new base Camos (examples above)
  • Eight new Mastery (Completionist) Camos (four for MWII weapons, four for MWIII weapons)
  • Over 400 new Mastery Calling Cards and Emblems
  • Over 100 new Mastery Charms

Modern Warfare III: Weapon Camo Synopsis

Information overload? Then read on as we conclude this blog with a reasonably concise summary:

The Modern Warfare III Weapon Camo system is familiar but comes with additional innovations and a vastly larger pool of camos to unlock. As in MWII, camos are split into two groups: Base and Completionist (Mastery):

New Base Camos (MWIII MP, MWZ)

  • There are 18 brand new Base Camo sets in MWIII.
  • New Base Camos are unlocked by completing Challenges using MWIII weaponry.
  • New Base Camos are unlocked in both Multiplayer and Zombies.
  • Multiplayer: Expect four Base Camos per MWIII Primary Weapon and Handgun.
  • Zombies: Expect four Base Camos per MWIII Primary Weapon and Handgun.
  • Expect one Base Camo per MWIII Launcher and Melee for MP, and the same for Zombies.

Carry Forward (MP) and Added Base Camos (MWZ)

The 14 Multiplayer Base Camo sets from MWII carry forward.

  • Brand new Zombies camos have been added to each Carry Forward Base set, doubling each Carry Forward set with new Zombies camos to unlock.
  • Carry Forward Base Camos are unlocked by completing Challenges using MWII weaponry.
  • Carry Forward Base Camos are now unlocked in both Multiplayer and Zombies.
  • Multiplayer (Carry Forward Camos): Expect the existing four Base Camos per MWII Primary Weapon and Handgun, with their existing unlock criteria.
  • Zombies: Expect four new Base Camos per MWII Primary Weapon and Handgun.
  • Expect one Challenge per MWII Launcher and Melee for MP, and the same for Zombies.

Base Camo Summary

  • Once unlocked, any Base Camo can be applied to any weapon in MWIII.
  • The total of Base Camo sets (excluding Event and Special camos) is 14 (MWII) + 18 (MWIII) = 32.

Base Camo Totals (834, Estimated and Subject to Change)

MWII Weapons (556)

  • Primaries and Handguns (67 x 8): 536 (MP, MWZ)*
  • Launchers and Melee (10 x 2): 20 (MP, MWZ)**

(** 10 Base Camos Carry Forward, and 10 are brand new.)

(*** 278 Base Camos Carry Forward, 556 are brand new, total does not include “Special” Base Camos, or those unlocked via Events or Ranked Play.)

Completionist Camos (MWII, MWIII)

  • Once each Base Camo is unlocked for an individual weapon, the Completionist Camos can be unlocked via additional Challenges.
  • There are 16 different Completionist (“Mastery”) camos in MWIII. They are divided into groups of four:
    • Multiplayer (Carry Forward): There are the four returning from MWII.
    • Multiplayer: There are four new camos for MWIII weapons.
    • Zombies: There are four new camos for MWII weapons.

  • The Carry Forward Completionist Camos have the same unlock criteria as in MWII.
  • The new Completionist Camos have a variety of unlocks more individually tailored to the weapon’s playstyle.

Completionist Camo Unlocks Totals (912, Estimated and Subject to Change)

MWII MP Weapons (77 x 4) = 308

MWIII MP Weapons (37 x 4) = 148

MWII MWZ Weapons (77 x 4) = 308
