Black Ops 2 Camos: How to Get Each One Fast

In pretty much every CoD game to date players have been able to “customize” their weapons by adding special weapon camouflages and clan tags. Black Ops 2, the latest in the series, features a total of 16 different camos that can be used on any of the weapons, including the assault shield, ballistic knife, crossbow, and other specials. Each camo has a challenge that must be met before it becomes unlocked for the player. Below we’ve listed all of the BO2 camos along with their requirements and tips for getting them quick.

DEVGRU

BO2 Devgru Weapon Camo

DEVGRU is a pretty standard camouflage consisting of different shades of brown, tan, green, and black. It doesn’t take much to get it, either. Here are the requirements:

Assault Rifles / SMGs / LMGs / Pistols – Simply get 5 headshots with the selected gun.

Shotguns / Snipers – Get 5 one hit kills with the selected weapon.

Assault Shield – Get 5 kills using the shield.

RPG / Combat Knife – Get 5 kills using the weapon.

SMAW / FHJ – Destroy 5 enemy aerial scorestreaks.

Crossbow / Ballistic Knife – Get 25 kills using the special weapon of choice.

TIPS: There really isn’t any golden tip for getting this particular camouflage. It’s easy and straightforward. Go out there and get your kills. If you need headshots try to come up behind your enemy without them noticing and pop them in the dome.

A-TACS AU

BO2 A-Tacs AU Weapon Camo

A-TACS isn’t the most pleasant looking camo. It’s basically just a combination of different shades of brown all smudged together. But, unfortunately, you still have to get it if you hope to obtain the better camos later on. Here are the requirements:

Assault Rifles / SMGs / LMGs / Pistols – Obtain 10 headshots with the selected weapon.

Shotguns / Snipers – Obtain 10 one hit kills using the weapon of choice.

Assault Shield – Obtain 10 kills using the shield bash.

RPG / Combat Knife – Obtain 20 kills with the selected weapon.

Crossbow / Ballistic Knife – Obtain 50 kills using the selected special weapon.

SMAW / FHJ – Take out 10 enemy aerial scorestreaks.

TIPS: Again, these are pretty straightforward challenges. Earn your kills and aim well for the headshot kills. It’s as simple as that.

ERDL

BO2 ERDL Weapon Camo

ERDL is another standard-looking camo consisting of greens, browns, tans, and blacks. It is referred to as a “jigsaw” pattern. Below are the requirements for each weapon type to unlock it:

Assault Rifles / SMGs / LMGs / Pistols - Get 15 headshots using the selected weapon.

Shotguns / Snipers – Earn 25 one shot kills using the weapon of choice.

Assault Shield – Earn 15 kills using the shield bash move.

RPG – Earn 30 kills.

Combat Knife – Earn 40 kills.

Crossbow / Ballistic Knife – Earn 75 kills using the preferred special weapon.

SMAW / FHJ – Eliminate 20 enemy aircraft using the selected launcher.

TIPS: Getting 75+ kills using a special weapon like the Crossbow or Ballistic Knife can be quite tedious in traditional matchmaking gametypes like TDM and objective-based games. If you’re wanting to unlock camos for your specials the best way to do it fast is by playing the Stick and Stones gametype found under Party Games. There, your only weapons are the Crossbow, Ballistic Knife, and Combat Axe.

Cherry Blossom

BO2 Cherry Blossom Weapon Camo

Cherry Blossom is a very girl-friendly weapon customization that is rich in pinks and flowers. It may be girly but even a guy can enjoy its artful appearance or get a kick out of killing other guys with a “prissy” looking weapon. You MUST unlock Kryptek before you’ll start earning credit toward CB. Either way, here’s what it takes to unlock it:

Assault Rifles / LMGs / SMGs / Pistols – Earn a total of 150 kills with the desired weapon without using any attachments on the gun.

Combat Knife – Earn a total of 5 survivor medals. These medals are obtained when your player is heavily injured and you manage to get a kill with the knife. (screen will be filled with red blood)

TIPS: For the Combat Axe kills and combat knife medals you’ll want to head into Sticks and Stones. This way you’ll have the opportunity to throw your axe at enemies without them firing automatic weapons at you. The survivor medals are the hardest to get out of this list.

Art of War

BO2 Art of War Weapon Camo

Art of War is another camo that is unique to Black Ops 2. It features a black background with red Chinese lettering on it. It looks pretty neat on most weapons, too. You MUST unlock Kryptek before anything you do will count towards unlock AoW. Here are the requirements to get it:

Assault Rifles / LMGs / SMGs / Pistols – Earn a total of 150 kills with the selected weapon while using no perks on the associated loadout.

Combat Knife – Earn a total of 5 revenge medals using only the knife, no other weapons.

TIPS: Getting Art of War is most difficult with the Ballistic Knife. But to ensure you get it, simply fire off your initial knives right away and then stab enemies to recover more while running the Scavenger perk.

Ronin

BO2 Ronin Weapon camo

Ronin is by far one of the most elaborate camouflages available in BO2. It has what appears to be part of a Japanese tapestry featuring a samurai and other oriental art. Here is what you need to do to unlock it:

Assault Rifles / Pistols – Earn 20 double kill medals using the AR or handgun of choice.

Shotguns / Snipers – Earn a total of 5 double kill medals using the preferred shotty or sniper rifle.

FHJ – Take out 10 enemy aircraft that are being controlled by the player. This can include the VTOL Warship, Dragonfire, and Lodestar.

TIPS: The bloodthirsty medal for the Crossbow is easiest obtained while playing the Sticks and Stones gametype. The rest of these are pretty self-explanatory.

Skulls

BO2 Skulls Weapon Camo

The Skulls weapon camo in BO2 has a blue background and grim-looking,. white skulls all over it. It makes for a very eerie and intimidating customization for your weapons. Here’s what you have to do to get it:

Assault Rifles / LMGs / SMGs / Pistols – Earn a total of 10 bloodthirsty medals using the selected weapon.

Combat Knife – Earn 5 bloodthirsty medals with the knife.

Crossbow – Kill an enemy using each of the crossbow bolts in a single clip. There are 3 arrows so this means you need to get a kill with each one of the arrows to earn the Skulls camo for it.

FHJ – Take out 1 enemy AGR using this launcher.

SMAW – Earn a total of 5 double kills using this launcher.

RPG – Earn 1 triple kill with this weapon.

TIPS: As with nearly every other camo, take yourself into Sticks and Stones to get the combat knife and crossbow kills. The double and triple kills with the launchers are best obtained by playing objective gametypes where you know enemies will be around an objective point. Find a high spot to look down on them and surprise them with a powerful rocket.

Gold

BO2 Gold Weapon Camo

The Gold weapon camouflage has been around since the original Modern Warfare. Then it was only available for one weapon per weapon category but in BO2 you can earn it for ANY weapon. All you have to do to get it is complete the challenges for every other camo for that weapon. So if you wanted a gold Peacekeeper you’d need to obtain every other camo before it.
