MTZ 556 Camo Challenges & Tips in MW3

Shane Williams

The MTZ 556 is a popular Assault Rifle in Modern Warfare 3 that’s based on the real-life weapon CZ 805 BREN. Its stats are pretty even across the board, but it excels in Recon Control which makes it a great candidate for picking off enemies from close to medium range. Every Weapon in MW3 has a bunch of challenges to complete in order to earn cool-looking Camos. If you’re wondering what the MTZ 556 challenges are, then this page will tell you everything you need to know.

Here is a look at the MTZ 556 Camo Challenges and tips on how to complete each one.

The MTZ 556 Camo Challenges are as follows:

Challenge Requirement
Base Camo Challenge 1 50 Kills
Base Camo Challenge 2 50 ADS Kills
Base Camo Challenge 3 15 Headshot Kills
Base Camo Challenge 4 25 Tac Stance Kills

MTZ 556 Challenges Tips in MW3

There are eight challenges available for the MTZ 556 and three of them are fairly simple to complete as long as you ADS with every kill then you should complete both 1 and 2 together. As for the Headshots, you’ll want to equip the Cronen Mini Red Dot as it’ll make it easier to line up your shots and stick with none-objective based game modes like TDM because it’ll make it easier for you to avoid being in situations where you’re facing 3+ enemies. Next up, you’ll need to get 24 Tac Stance Kills which is a new mechanic in MW3, so check out our What is Tactical Stance in MW3? to learn more about how to use it improves your Mobility and Reduces Bullet Spread which makes it easier to bag kills in close-quarters situations.

MTZ 556 Gilded Camo Challenge and Higher Mastery Level Challenges in MW3

Once you’ve completed the four basic camos you’ll move on to the MTZ 556 Gilded Camo Challenge which is a lot easier to complete. All you need to do is get three kills within one magazine which is easily done by increasing your magazine capacity to the “50 Round Drum” and burst firing whilst playing in Hardcore Modes, as the enemy’s health will be reduced. Upon completion of the MTZ 556 Gilded Camo Challenge you’ll need to get 10 more kills in Tac Stance and unlock the Gilded Camo for the remaining five Assault Rifles before you can move onto the MTZ 556 Forged Camo Challenge.

This Camo requires you to get 10 ADS Kills (Aiming-Down-Sights) Kills whilst Strafing which means you’ll need to be moving from the left to the right whilst shooting. This shouldn’t be too much of a challenge but we recommend that you try to do this in objective-based game modes as the other players won’t be focusing on you which should make it a little easier to bag the kill. You’ll now need to obtain the Forged Camo for all 36 Weapons before you can finally move onto the Priceless Camo Challenge which requires you to simply get 10 Burst Kills which means using a few bullets at a time, so you’ll want to make use of Hardcore for this as the enemies go down quicker.
