Here’s how to unlock the camo rewards:

Warzone 2 & Modern Warfare 2 Path of the Ronin challenges
There are seven Path of the Ronin challenges across both Warzone 2 and Modern Warfare 2. These are “based on the Seven Virtues of Bushido: Integrity, Respect, Courage, Honor, Compassion, Sincerity, and Loyalty.”
All Path of the Ronin Season 2 challenges are currently available. We’ll go over all of these in detail and what they require you to do.
Integrity requires you to win 15 matches in any multiplayer game mode or get five Top 10 finishes in Warzone 2. You can start racking up those wins in no time with the help of your friends.
The Honor challenge requires you to score 100 objective defense kills in multiplayer or collect your dog tag (Restore Honor) five times in Warzone 2. Hardpoint will provide you plenty of opportunities to score objective defense kills.
You can complete the Sincerity Path of the Ronin challenge by getting 50 kills using Battle Rage in multiplayer or completing five Assassination Contracts after hopping into Warzone 2.
Close-quarters weapons like SMGs and Shotguns are ideal choices for Battle Rage. Playing squad-based game modes will let you complete Assassination Contracts quickly as any elimination from your squadmates will count toward this challenge’s progress.
The Compassion challenge arrived on February 21 and it tasks Modern Warfare 2 players to get 100 assists. Meanwhile, you’ll have to revive 20 teammates in Warzone 2 matches to complete the challenge in the battle royale.
The Courage challenge is all about building a streak in Modern Warfare 2 as you’ll have to get three kills without dying 25 times in order to complete this section. Warzone 2 players can conquer the Courage challenge by completing three Search and Seizure contracts.
To complete the Loyalty challenge players must get 50 Operator Revenge kills in Modern Warfare 2. This can be tricky as Revenge kills in Modern Warfare 2 occur when you kill the person who killed you last. Small maps and playlists like Gun Game or Free-For-All are recommended for this challenge.
Those looking to complete the Loyalty challenge in Warzone 2 will have to complete three downloads during the Data Heist public event.
Warzone players will have to perform 3 executions on enemy players in matches to complete the Respect challenge. Meanwhile, getting 25 Melee Operator kills is the key to completing it in Modern Warfare 2. Both require a sneaky and stealthy style of play.
Warzone 2 & Modern Warfare 2 Path of the Ronin rewards
For the time being, the ultimate reward for completing Warzone 2 and Modern Warfare 2’s Path of the Ronin event is the Crossbow, which is unlocked after completing all seven challenges.

- Integrity: Roze Operator skin
- Honor: Emblem
- Sincerity: Calling Card
- Compassion: Weapon Sticker
- Courage: Loading Screen
- Loyalty: Charm
- Respect: SMG Blueprint
Once Season 2 Reloaded rolls around, players will be able to unlock the Crossbow by getting 50 Longshot Kills with Marksman Rifles.
