Wondering how to get the Orion Mastery Camo in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II? We've got you covered.

As with any new Call of Duty title at launch, plenty of players will be looking to grind out matches with each and every one of the game's weapons in order to earn its most prestigious cosmetics: Mastery Camos. In MW2, there are four that players will want to unlock ASAP: Gold, Platinum, Polyatomic and Orion. Here's a breakdown of how to get the Orion Camo in Modern Warfare 2.

Modern Warfare 2 Orion Camo: How to Get

The Orion Camo is considered the "official mark of completion for Weapon Camos" in Modern Warfare 2.

This is because the Orion Camo is simply awarded for unlocking the Polyatomic Camo across a minimum of 51 weapons — which can be the 51 weapons available at launch, or a combination of 51 day-one and post-launch weapons. For any additional weapons after the initial 51, Orion is also automatically granted for earning the Polyatomic Camo on them.

Of course, unlocking the Polyatomic Camos requires completing plenty of Platinum, Gold and Base Camo Challenges, so it will take some time before you can start making progress toward the Orion itself.


Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II is set to release worldwide on Oct. 28.
