How to get Diamond Camo / Camouflage on Call of Duty Black Ops 2 ( BO2 )


In this guide I will talk about what you need to do in order to get the diamond camouflage for your weapons. This is above gold, and is more difficult but will bling out your gun, and be very fascinating. With that being said I will talk about the camo, what to do to get it, and the best way to go about getting it.

Before I get started let me say that I am officially recruiting with my co-leader for new teammates on Call of Duty black Ops 2.. For more information about our clan go to .

Also please feel free to follow me on Twitter @Johnrr631992 in order to stay on top of all of the guides that I will be posting over the course of Black Ops 2, and many other games.

What is Diamond Camo

Diamond Camo is the elite camouflage on Black Ops 2 multiplayer. It is extremely difficult to get, and overall will feature a lot of Bling on your gun. It is very different looking than any other camo, and will definitely turn heads. This is something that will take a lot more effort than getting gold camo, and that is exactly part of what is needed.

How to get Diamond Camo

The way in which you achieve getting diamond camo on your guns requires you to get the gold camo in every gun in that class. For instance, to get a diamond camo on the Skorpion you must go through and get gold camo on every other gun in the sub machine gun class in order to unlock it on all the sub machine guns. This will take a lot of time and effort so lets get to ways to get this quick.

Easiest Way to get Diamond Camo

The easiest way to get diamond camo is in two steps.. First off, is aiming. Obviously this is a no brainer, but when you are going to shoot someone, aim for the head. Also adding a laser sight to your gun makes the hip fire accuracy better, and I find gets you a lot more headshots on your weapon. When you are aiming, remember to practice going for the head. The best way of accomplishing this is either in Hardcore, or practicing in zombies game mode.. Either way, practice makes perfect, and this will allow you to have the ability to aim the gun better, and increase your accuracy. Getting headshots is not easy, but I find Hardcore makes it much easier, and playing objective game modes, usually allows you to have better luck as well..

Which leads me to my second point. Playing objective game modes. Some will play team deathmatch, but since the objective is getting kills, it may be harder to take the time to focus on someones head. But in an objective game, you will get a lot of people who run around, and this makes it extremely simple for you to take the time to aim up and take someone out in the head.

In my opinion the best game mode to get diamond camo on is on hardcore capture the flag. One shot to the head, and you got the kill, not to mention it is fairly simple for you tog et that head shot.

Don't stress on Diamond.

Focus initially on getting a couple gold camo's, and stick with that. Then over time work on your diamond camo. While it may be a race to get that diamond camo before your friends, at the same time you want to focus on making sure that you are having fun. Not to mention that it is not easy to get the gold camo, and to achieve that proficiency is a good feat in itself. With that being said, don't stress over diamond, and just have fun. It is nothing more than a game, and you need to focus on playing, having fun, and not worrying about the diamond camo, it will come eventually with enough play.

ALSO please don't boost to get diamond. This is not something new that people would boost in order for them to get a gold gun, and I am SURE that people are boosting for a diamond gun. With that being said I personally do not approve of boosting in order to get a camo, but overall I am sure this will happen.

Gold camo

Below I have attached a link to my guide on how to get the gold camo, which will talk about strategies, and ways that will help you achieve this. The guide talks about ways in which you can go about getting that gold camo, and that will help you complete the diamond a lot quicker.


Overall getting a diamond camo is not a difficult task, but a very lengthy task. It will not be easy, but it is rewarding, and there are plenty of pictures, and videos on youtube of people with the diamond camo. If you have any questions please feel free to ask,

Thanks for the helpful tips! I have been working on the diamond camo for around two weeks now and I only have to unlock gold for the MSMC & chicom. I am very happy to have come across your blog!

Thanks, and glad it has helped.. The chicom was not a fun one, BUT once you get used to it, the head shots are not that bad.

So far the launchers are the only ones I'm anywhere CLOSE to getting gold/diamond... I don't even have 5 camo unlocks for any of the other weapons (LMAO). But the painful thing is that I rarely EVER run into anyone on the other team who uses a controllable killstreak for me to shoot with the FHJ, or a Dragonfire to kill with the RPG. GAAAH!!!!!!

Oh, and the people I play with usually manage to stop the other team from getting much else but UAVs, CUAVs, and other rather low-end score streaks, so hitting anything with an RPG is tough...

I am getting close to shotguns, and assault rifles.. I really only have the fal and SMR left on assault, and just that semi auto shotgun left... So I am getting excited although now I have switched and am working on the peacekeeper haha.

burst fire weapons use select fire and aim head level while u sway and you get headshots.

Wraith 3 years ago

Actually, I would suggest treating the burst fire assault rifles as mid to long range weapons, only using them at close range in an emergency. I think the only burst fire weapon I'll ever really use select fire on is the Chicom.

The chicom is awful no matter what you use with it.. Burst fire makes it okay, but WOW is that a pathetic weapon.. I feel completely insulted when I get killed by someone using a chicom haha.. Even on Hardcore..

Wraith 3 years ago

Agreed. Unfortunately, I'm a completionist, so no matter how PISSED I get at the gun, I'm still going to get all the camos and stuff (eventually...).

Yah, I did that before I reset my stuff, and my co founder is doing that now.. I think all he has left is one or two secondaries before he is 100% done with everything..

It shouldn't be glitched.. You do need to get 5 kills in a row with JUST your weapon.. Not with grenades, scorestreaks, or other means of killing.. Straight up shooting your gun for 5 kills in a row.

Uncainnercougar 3 years ago

Uncainnercougar 3 years ago
