(When the servers are actually working) I’m having a lot of fun with the PDW SMG. Last night I got to the max weapon level and noticed an option to prestige, so I did so under the assumption I would unlock some kind of camo. I figured that “gold” would be unlocked after couple of prestiges.
As it turns out I was wide of the mark. Prestiging your weapon once gives you the option of displaying your clan tag on the gun in multiplayer games. To unlock the gold camo you need to complete a series of challenges.
Black Ops II: How to unlock gold gun camo [VIDEO]
First off, you need to get 100 headshots or, in the case of shotguns, 250 one hit kills. Next you need to get 10 longshots, followed by 50 kills without using any weapon attachments. When you’ve done that you need another 50 kills whilst running no perks on your class. The next one, 5 multikills, might seem difficult but you only need doubles. Feel free to get triples or quads but they’re not necessary on the road to gold camo. Finally, you need to attain 10 killstreaks whilst using your soon-to-be gold weapon.
The above applies to all of the standard weapons, namely Assault Rifles, Sniper Rifles, Shotguns, LMGs and SMGs. Once I’ve unlocked my first gold gun (no doubt the PDW) I’m going to take a look at some of the specials, starting with the Riot Shield.
No doubt my K/D will take a bit of a battering but it should be pretty cool running around with a gold riot shield!!
