How to Unlock

To unlock the Bioluminescent Camo in MW3 you must complete Base Camo, Golden Ivory, Spinel Husk, and Arachnida Challenges for MW2 weapons in Zombies.

With access to over 70 weapons from MW2 in MW3, you must choose wisely as you can only unlock the Bioluminescent Mastery Camo for 51 of those weapons.

Follow these steps to unlock the Bioluminescent Camo in MW3:

  1. Complete all the Base Camo Challenges in MW3 Zombies with a MW2 weapon
    • There are four Base Camos for most weapons. They each require you to get the weapon to a certain level and to get a certain number of kills with it in specific scenarios
    • Completing all four Base Camo Challenges unlocks Golden Ivory Challenges for that weapon

  1. Complete the Golden Ivory Challenge with your chosen MW2 weapon
    • You need to get 100 Kills and Successfully Extract with your chosen weapon in a Single Deployment in Zombies
      • It may seem like a lot of kills to get in a single play session, but heading into the higher-tier zones should help, as more zombies will spawn here
      • Alternatively, you can grind an infinite amount of zombies by taking on an Outlast Contract in MWZ. It’s also the best weapon XP farm in MW3 Zombies!
      • Just remember to Exfil when you’ve got the desired amount of kills
    • Completing the above will unlock Spinel Husk Challenges

  1. Complete the Spinel Husk Challenge with your chosen MW2 weapon
    • Complete 8 Golden Ivory Challenges with your chosen weapon type
      • This means you’ll need to kill 100 zombies and Successfully Extract with 8 weapons of the same weapon type for the gun you are trying to complete this challenge for
      • For example, if you’re looking to complete this challenge for the M4, you’ll need to complete Golden Ivory Challenges with 8 different Assault Rifles in order to complete this objective
      • In Zombies, Get 300 Kills with your chosen weapon while it’s Pack-A-Punched
        • This one shouldn’t be too difficult as you don’t need to do this in one match, thankfully
        • You’ll need to Pack-A-Punch your weapon at least once and kill 300 enemies in a Zombies match
        • Check out our guide on how to Pack-A-Punch your weapon in MWZ for more info!
      • Completing the above will unlock Arachnida Challenges

  1. Complete the Arachnida Challenge with your chosen MW2 weapon
    • Complete 51 Spinel Husk Camo Challenges
      • Here’s where the grind truly begins – you must complete Spinel Husk Camo Challenges a whopping 51 times to complete this objective
      • This means that you have to complete all the above steps at least 51 times, each with different weapons
    • In Zombies, Get 10 Special or Elite Zombie Kills with your chosen weapon
      • Special and Elite zombies are more powerful and tankier enemy variants in MWZ
      • Here are the types of Special or Elite Zombies you can come across:
        • Mangler
        • Disciple
        • Mimic
      • We recommend completing Bounty Contracts, as all three of these enemy types has a chance to spawn when doing this Contract in all three zones in a Zombies match
    • Completing the above will unlock the Bioluminescent Challenge

  1. Complete the Bioluminescent Challenge with your chosen MW2 weapon
    • Complete 51 Arachnida Camo Challenges
      • Similar to the first objective of the previous Challenge, you must complete Arachnida Camo Challenges 51 times to unlock the Bioluminescent Camo for your weapon of choice
      • This means that you must complete all of the above challenges with 51 different weapons to unlock this Camo!
