How to Get The Ninja Vest in MW3

There are huge benefits to using the Ninja Vest in MW3:

  • It eliminates footstep sounds
  • It provides immunity against ‘movement reduction effects’ (like stun grenades)
  • It restocks lethal thrown equipment over time

The only caveat is that the Ninja Vest can’t be stacked with the Covert Sneakers – but that’s not a huge loss. There are plenty more options when it comes to tactical footwear in Modern Warfare 3. For instance, you could opt to use the Lightweight Boots to move faster while also remaining silent with the Ninja Vest. It’s going to be a huge loadout buff for SMG, knife, and pistol players.

So, here’s how to unlock the Ninja Vest.

Like other newly released items in Modern Warfare 3, the Ninja Vest is ‘hidden’ behind an Armory Unlock wall. That means that you’ll need to complete daily challenges to unlock it – which isn’t all that difficult, depending on the specific challenges you’re given. It’ll take five daily challenges to unlock the Ninja Vest in MW3 – but there’s a catch hidden there, too.

If you want to hit five challenges in a day, you’ll need to switch the game that you’re playing, as each mode only offers three daily challenges. So, if you play some multiplayer matches to secure those challenges and then pivot to Zombies or Warzone, you can unlock the remaining challenges. Alternatively, use the bonus challenge points you get in a single mode and grind a little harder to unlock the Ninja Vest.

Have fun staying silent out there.
