Considering Borealis is the final mastery camo on MW3 Zombies, players typically have a few questions regarding this camouflage. 

MW3 Zombies: How long does it take to unlock Borealis camo?

Players will have to unlock every mastery camouflage on Zombies before being able to collect their Borealis camouflage. Therefore, players have to obtain Golden Enigma, Zircon Scale, and Serpentinite before being given Borealis. 

In terms of total play time, it's estimated to take approximately 48 hours of challenge-dedicated gameplay to unlock the Borealis Camouflage. 


MW3 Zombies: Do I need to unlock Multiplayer camos for Borealis?

Straightforward answer, no. 

The Modern Warfare Multiplayer mastery camouflages are completely separate from the zombies mastery camouflages, thankfully.


MW3 Zombies: What weapons do I need to unlock all mastery camos on?

Players will need to unlock all zombie mastery camouflages on the mainstream MW3 weapons, this includes:

  • Assault Rifles
  • Battle Rifles
  • SMGs
  • Shotguns
  • LMGs 
  • Marksman Rifles
  • Sniper Rifles
  • Handguns
  • Launchers 
  • Melee 

Players won't need to worry about MW or MW2 weapons that have been transferred across onto MW3. You can identify MW3 dedicated weapons with the "MW3" logo on each weapon in the create-a-class menu. 

It's highly recommended players attempt to unlock the Borealis camouflage on MW3 Zombies, simply because it's a nice but difficult goal to strive towards.
