For the similar camouflage that appears in Call of Duty: Black Ops and in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, see Red Camouflage.


Red Tiger Camouflage is a weapon camouflage skin featured in both Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.

The Red Tiger camouflage is only available in online multiplayer, and is achieved by getting 150 headshots with a specific gun for assault rifles, submachine guns, light machine guns, and sniper rifles. Its appearance is solid black with red stripes lateral to the weapon, like a tiger's body pattern.

Despite the fact that it provides zero camouflage function, and is the least striking and visible of the camouflage patterns (it is almost invisible on some weapons on low light maps), Red Tiger is still a very popular camouflage pattern, mostly because of the fact that it signifies that the player has obtained 150 headshots with the weapon, which is regarded as a symbol of player skill by many (although some players simply use the Cage Match mode to unlock Red Tiger, somewhat negating its "status" symbol).

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Edit

The Red Tiger camouflage features again in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. It is unlocked by obtaining 150 headshots with the chosen weapon, (primary weapons only) and is the second to last weapon camouflage to be unlocked. As opposed to Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare where the pattern was composed of pale, thinly colored red stripes against a predominant gray background, the variant in Modern Warfare 2 utilizes a more striking pattern that is reminiscent of the Tigerstripe camouflage used by US and South Vietnamese troops during the Vietnam War, along with a deeper red which makes the pattern far more visible and refined. It is the second to last unlocked finish, with Fall Camouflage being the last.

The Red Tiger is more popular than the Blue Tiger in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, unlike the other way around in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, as it takes 150 headshots to obtain this particular camouflage, a difficult task for most players before they Prestige, and largely due in part to its updated, more visually striking appearance from the previous game.

Trivia Edit

  • When the player achieves level 60 in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, they will acquire a title saying Gen. with a Red Tiger background.
  • The suppressed MP5 has a different pattern when equipped with the Red Tiger Camo, when compared to the unsuppressed variant.
