Holger 26 Camo Challenges & Tips in MW3

Shane Williams

The Holger 26 is one of the new Light Machine Guns added to Modern Warfare 3 and it comes equipped with high Fire Rate, Accuracy, and Handing which makes it a good candidate for both long and short-range gunfights. Every Weapon in MW3 has a bunch of challenges to complete to earn cool-looking Camos. If you’re wondering what the Holger 26 challenges are, this page will tell you everything you need to know.

Here is a look at the Holger 26 Challenges and tips on how to complete each one.

Holger 26 Camo Challenges in MW3

The Holger 26 Camo Challenges are as follows:

Challenge Requirement
Base Camo Challenge 1 50 Kills
Base Camo Challenge 2 10 Penetration Kills
Base Camo Challenge 3 10 Kills with full Attachments
Base Camo Challenge 4 10 Double Kills
Gilded Camo Challenge Get two kills while holding the trigger 10 times.
Forged Camo Challenge Get 25 Kills while ADS and Strafing
Priceless Camo Challenge 25 Hipfire kills while strafing.
Interstellar Camo Challenge Complete all other weapon challenges.

Holger 26 Challenges Tips in MW3

There are eight challenges available for the Holger 26 but all the following base challenges are the same for all Light Machine Guns: 50 Kills, 10 Penetration Kills, 10 Kills with Full Attachments, and 10 Double Kills. You’ll want to level up the weapon enough so you have all of the base challenges unlocked, then you’ll want to equip five attachments before playing Team Deathmatch and gradually completing both challenges 1 and 3 together. Next up, you’ll need to get 10 penetration kills, so you’ll want to equip Armor Piercing Rounds as this will allow your bullets to penetrate through walls.

You’ll then want to wait until you get maps that feature more places for your opponent to hide behind such as Highrise because people will be more likely to hide behind cover which will then increase your chance of getting Penetration Kills. Your final base challenge will require you to get 10 double kills which means killing two enemies in quick succession. You’ll have an easier time doing this in objective base game modes such as Control because you’ll come across multiple enemies regularly so you can bag a double kill from a distance.

Holger 26 Gilded Camo Challenge and Higher Mastery Level Challenges in MW3

Once you’ve completed all of the base challenges for the Holger 26, it’s time for you to grind for that glorious Interstellar Camo and this requires you to complete the following three mastery camos: a Gilded, Forged, and Priceless. The Holger 26 Gilded Camo Challenge requires you to get a double kill while holding the trigger, so you’ll want to equip one of the larger magazines as this will give you more time to find the second player and then you’ll want to play objective game modes on Hardcore as this means you’ll be coming across more players and their health will be reduced. After you’ve completed the Gilded Camo Challenge for the Holger 26, the real grind will begin as you’ll need to unlock Gilded for the remaining three Light Machine Guns before you can access the Holger 26 Forged Challenge.

Here you’ll need to get 25 Kills while ADS (Aiming-Down-Sights) and Strafing which simply means moving while you take the shot. We recommend that you do this from a distance as going in and out of ADS with an LMG takes a while, so equip a scope that gives you the ability to see further away. Finally, you’ll need to obtain the Forged Camo for all 36 Weapons then you can do the Priceless Camo Challenge. This requires you to get 25 kills while strafing, so you’ll want to make use of the Hardcore Mode once more, then work your way through the buildings on the smaller maps like Favala and simply hip-fire anyone you come across. This concludes the FTAC Recon camo challenges guide.
