Learning how to get the Blood Cell camo in MW2 & Warzone 2 is something a lot of Call of Duty players are keen to do, but how do you get your hands on this universal weapon camouflage?

Well, the Season 5 update added the Faction Showdown limited-time event that pits Shadow Company versus Task Force 141.
