How to get the Crimson solid color camo in Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2

The Crimson or the red solid color camo in Modern Warfare 2 is the base camo challenge for the Combat Knife Melee weapon. To gain access to this challenge, you'll first have to rank up the Knife to level 11. One of the fastest ways to level up the Melee is by playing Kill Confirmed and running around the map killing enemies and collecting dog tags for weapon XP. You can also run Decoy Grenades as tactical and DDoS as your Field Upgrade for bonus XP.

After leveling up the Combat Knife to level 11, the base camo challenge will unlock for you. The Crimson camo challenge requires you to get 50 kills using the Combat Knife. The challenge itself is pretty straightforward, however, it's not that easy to rack up many kills against players using guns. Regardless, this challenge can be completed in a fair amount of time, most effectively in objective-based 6v6 game modes such as Hardpoint, Kill Confirmed, Headquarters, and Domination.
