How to get Gold, Diamond & Dark Matter Camo (Black Ops 3)

How to get Gold, Diamond & Dark Matter Camo (Black Ops 3)

Weapon camouflage (or “camo” for short) is not a new addition to the Call of Duty Series. When I first picked up a copy of Modern Warfare 2 in January 2010, I spent hours trying to kit out my Intervention sniper rifle with the “fall”. If I remember correctly, this was unlocked the moment you got your 250th headshot.

The camo itself was pretty ugly but the appeal came from the fact it was relatively hard to obtain and would therefore be rarer than some of the camos that required less headshots to unlock. Skip forward to 2015 and absolutely nothing has changed in that regard – people generally want to rock the rarer camos.

When Black Ops 2 came along, Treyarch mixed things up a little by introducing challenges. Once completed, these would unlock a hidden gold camo. On top of that, if you unlocked gold camos for every gun in any given class, you would then unlock the hidden diamond camo. [Incidentally, my video on “how to get gold and diamond camos in Black Ops 2” is my most viewed video, with over 100k views]

For Black Ops 3, Treyarch have gone one step further. Weapon crate drops bring the possibility of rare camos that aren’t available by completing gun challenges. As if that wasn’t enough, you can once again unlock diamond weapons by unlocking the gold camo for every gun in any given class. For those of you with lots of spare time, you can go one step further and unlock the “dark matter” camo, by obtaining diamond camos in every class for primary AND secondary weapons.

The dark matter camo is, without question, the most difficult camo to unlock in Call of Duty history, which is perhaps why people were moaning about it being pretty boring. Not one to ignore criticism, Treyarch have updated the dark matter camo in a recent patch.

Right now, I only have one gold gun- the Weevil – so it’s unlikely you’ll see diamond weapons in my hands in the near future.

Disclaimer: the title of this post may be a little misleading but it’s late at night and I can’t think of anything more fitting. Specifically, this is a rant concerning the pricing strategy of the PSN Store (and presumably the XBox store) when it comes to new games. Earlier on today it became clear that IContinue Reading

My PS4 is *still* downloading updates {Will I actually get to play some Advanced Warfare tonight?

There’s nothing like a timely post, right? If we assume I uploaded this when I was supposed to … back in November last year … then it is quite likely that you are asking yourself the question: what is the best perk in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare?  Well, I too asked that question and came to a veryContinue Reading

If you haven’t tried it yet, you really [really, really] need to slap on the assault kill streak set-up and have a go with the Helo Pilot. It’s a 12 point kill streak but if you go with the attack dog and trinity rocket it’s not that hard to get. My own approach is toContinue Reading

A couple of weeks ago I posted Games 1 & 2 of the FIFA 13 Live: Cup Glory? series & some of the more switched on readers have noticed I never followed up on this. To be honest, I figured that no-one would be interested given FIFA 14 is now on the shelves but IContinue Reading
