There’s some prestige in unlocking mastery camos. Some look nice, others not so much, but players grind them to show off their expertise more than anything.

If you like the way orion camo looks is for you to say, but it sure shows that you have played this game more and better than most people.

Having the orion camo shows that you have not only played with all the guns available in the game but also completed many challenges with each of them.

If you want to intimidate your adversaries by showing off the ultimate mastery camo, we’ve got you covered. Here’s how to unlock orion camo in Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2.

The Orion Challenge in Call of Duty MW2

There’s no orion challenge. In order to have orion camo for your guns, you must unlock polyatomic camo for all weapons.

I know it doesn’t seem right, but you can see it for yourself by checking the orion camo’s challenge.

All the other camos demand that you do something before you even know what the challenge even is. The orion camo phrases things differently, though.

It does not say that you must have all polyatomic camos to unlock the orion challenge. It only says, “complete all polyatomic challenges to unlock.”

What this text means is that you need to complete all challenges to unlock the camo, not another challenge that you must complete.

In other words, unlocking polyatomic camo with all the guns is the challenge. Once that is done, you also have orion camo with all the weapons in MW2.

So this is how the process goes:

  1. Complete all base camo challenges with all weapons — each weapon has 4
  2.   Complete 51 gold challenges with all weapons to unlock all platinum challenges
  3.   Complete 51 platinum challenges to unlock all polyatomic challenges
  4.   Complete 51 polyatomic challenges to unlock polyatomic camo for all weapons

Tips and Tricks to Unlock Orion Camo

Sadly, there isn’t a special technique to accelerate this process substantially. Considering the challenges listed above, be aware that you will spend several hours grinding. This is by design. The developers don’t want orion camo to be easy to get, which makes sense.

Having said that, there might be a few things you can do to slightly speed things up.

Please keep in mind that while our methods might make the process less annoying, attaining orion camo still requires quite a lot of time and dedication.

The recommendations are useful but are not miraculous. Following them might make things easier, but not necessarily faster. Either way, some help will always be better than none.

  1. Use XP Tokens
  2. Use the best weapon class setups of each weapon
  3. Play Invasion and Domination

You can use XP Tokens to max a weapon’s level quicker, which can help you have all the needed attachments to make the challenges more manageable.

Also, make sure that you are familiar with the best attachments for SMGsLMGsAssault Rifles, and all the other weapons.

Invasion and Domination maps usually have gunfights more frequently than other modes, which means you might also get more kills.

For that reason, those game modes should make it easier to complete certain challenges, like getting someone from behind or taking down enemies with mounted weapons.
