MW2’s system split camos into base and mastery types, requiring you to earn the base camos first, and MW3 followed suit. I know I won’t be able to resist unlocking all of the skins, at least for my favorite weapons. Thankfully, we can bounce between MP and Zombie mode for the cosmetic objectives.

That’s all Mastery Camos and how to unlock them in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. Check out our MW3 guides hub for tips like the best loadouts and how to level up fast.
