Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare Edit
- "Red tiger stripe camouflage finish."
- — Camouflage description
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 and 100 headshots with the respective shotguns. 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.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered Edit
Red Tiger Camouflage returns in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered, unlocked after achieving 150 headshots with with a certain weapon except Shotguns and the XM-LAR, which require 100 headshots, and Pistols, which require 50 headshots.
Red Tiger appears darker in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered than in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. It also features a slight reflective capability in low light areas.Red Tiger camouflage is required to unlock the latter camouflages such as Dragon Skin, O.D. Green and Flat Dark Earth.
- 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.
