The Gold Camouflage in the series was featured in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare back in 2007. Since then, it has made an appearance in all the entries in the franchise. It belongs to those who have mastered a weapon in the game's multiplayer modes. However, MW2 gives its players a taste of the golden skin in the Campaign mode itself.

In MW2's Campaign, there are two different golden weapons that gamers can get their hands on. One being the .50 GS and the other the Kastov 762. As of right now, players were only able to find them in two missions - Recon By Fire and El Sin Nombre.

Here's how you can get them:

1) Recon by Fire


In Recon by Fire, the first location of the golden weapons, is one you cannot miss and can easily go for. After infiltrating the first warehouse, proceed to open the container as the game asks you to. Here, you will find tons of drugs along with five golden weapons - two Kastov 762 and three .50 GS.

2) El Sin Nombre


The second location is within Diego's mansion. In the El Sin Nombre mission, there are multiple places where you can find golden weapons.

As the mission progresses, get to the second floor through the balcony to avoid any enemies. Now, proceed straight and turn right when you reach the second room. Search the closet situated near the bed, and you will find a golden .50 GS here.

Diego will also drop a golden .50 GS if you take him out in the Ofrenda. The last known location for a gold-skinned .50 GS is in Diego's room, on his bed side table.

For the golden Kastov 762, you will need to access the garage. Here you will find an armory with plenty of weapons out of which three guns will be gold-plated Kastov 762s.
