Each MW3 weapon has four unique camo patterns that can be applied to any weapon once unlocked. Beyond the basic patterns, the most dedicated completionists can work towards unlocking Completionist Camos, the most coveted decals in the game.

Unlocking each camo is dependent on a level prerequisite and specific challenges, and while the level requirement is unique to each weapon, the challenges remain consistent across all guns within the same class. Here’s what you need to do for each weapon type to unlock their respective camos:

Assault Rifle

  • Earn 50 kills
  • Get 50 ADS kills
  • Get 15 Headshot kills
  • Score 25 kills while in Tactical Stance

The Assault Rifle camos should be relatively easy to unlock through normal gameplay.

For those seeking a more challenging goal, Completionist Camos are the pinnacle of camo unlocks in MW3. There are four different types, and although the requirements may seem simple, unlocking them can be a time-consuming endeavor:


  • Complete all Base Camo challenges
