What is Gold Camo..

Gold camouflage has been on every Call Of Duty game since Call of Duty 4. It is something that every person strives for, and enjoys to see their weapon as a gold gun. With that being said, each game has always made you jump through hoops in order to get the Gold Camo's.. Black Ops 1 ad the easiest means of getting a gold camo, because in order to achieve this all you had to do was have a lot of money in your bank from playing online games.

Black Ops 2 has changed this in a couple ways, and made this a little more difficult to achieve which i will talk about below.

Black Ops 2

All you need to do in BO2 to receive the gold camo is simply UNLOCK all the other camo's.. By doing this you will unlock the gold camo, but to do this there are some steps that you must take.. So basically there are two things you need to do in order to get the gold camo you want in Black Ops 2.. First off is headshots... the second is prestige...

The headshots part has been the same in most of the call of duties.. You need a certain number of headshots depending on the gun in order to unlock all the other camo's. Once this is done, then you will be able to get the gold.

The other step is prestige. I am not talking about prestiging you character, I am talking about prestiging your weapon. This can be done once the maximum level has been achieved on the gun. Once you prestige a weapon it then unlocks the rest of the camos. You will still need to do certain things to get these camos, but if your after that precious gold camo, then it really is worth doing in order to achieve the gold camo that you are after.

Gold Camo

Once you have completed the steps below you will be able to acquire the gold camo on your guns. This is no easy feat, but some guns like the sniper rifle, I have noticed that people already have the gold. I use mostly the light machine guns on core, and sub machine guns on hardcore, so this is going to take a lot more time from me. None the less, it is not something that is impossible to do, and will take little effort once you get the hang of things.

Summary

Overall just remember to have fun. If you focus on just headshots, you will get tired and sick of this game, or not appreciate the gold camo when you do get it. If you stick to one gun over time you will eventually get the camo you desire.

One of my younger brothers already got the SMAW gold and prestiged it, and I think he's probably about halfway to getting it gold again.

My other younger brother has the combat knife and the crossbow gold, and he's working on the assault shield. He's having a really tough time with that, since the camos he's got left are the "Get 25 kills with no perks equipped" and "Get 25 kills with no weapons equipped." The "no perks" one has caused him a LOT of trouble... to nobody's great surprise.

Hmm, that is very interesting.. I haven't worked much on those weapons, but have been going for assault rifles which are tougher because you need lots of headshots haha.. But i may look into those weapons...


Wraith 4 years ago

I'm just glad the shotguns have "One-shot kills" instead of headshots... the M1014 and W1200 were literally the HARDEST weapons for me to complete the Expert 3 challenge for in CoD4 (I was overjoyed when I noticed Expert 3 for the shotguns was 100 headshots, not 150 XD). Since the server I play on is hardcore, I 'sniped' with everything else to get the headshots. Even the Uzi (least favorite smg EVER).

Yes that does make things a lot easier for shotguns.. I just wish it was a little easier for some of the other guns..

i have 6 gold weapons and i did not have to prestige the weapon for the last few camos. i needed to unlock the kryptek camo to unlock the challenges for the last few camos.

I would assume for diamond camo you need to have the weapons maxed out..


Wraith 3 years ago

For diamond camo, you need to have gold camo for all weapons in that category (gold launchers to get diamond launchers, gold SMGs to get diamond SMGs, etc.). However, I don't know if getting all of them gold, then prestiging one weapon will make all the others lose diamond.

No, prestiging all guns would not make you lose your camo since you don't lose camos on prestiging, but I do believe you need to have the weapons prestiged to unlock diamond


Nic 3 years ago

this guide is inaccurate


Wraith 3 years ago

Yeah... I'd thought that prestiging a weapon meant all attachments and camos were reset. I just prestiged my first weapon (the FHJ launcher, lol), so... yeah. XD

@Nic... Which part?

@Wraith.. I'm glad prestiging a gun does not make you lose camos although it is a pain is the A** to prestige guns while trying to get headshots, especially on guns that need select fire like.. chicom, m8a1,smr... etc..


Wraith 3 years ago

LMAO. I actually ended up getting more headshots with the Chicom in its first 6 levels or so than I did with any other gun. The SMR and FAL are actually a little easier to get headshots with, particularly at longer ranges, especially once you have the red dot for them (IMHO), since it shows the exact spot you need to put over their head (I personally prefer using the default dot reticule or the blue circle for this).

Yah the chicom I saved for last, and took my time with it.. Like I said the headshots were easier than no perks no attachments, but I found that of the other sub machine guns the chicom saw the hardest to get headshots..


SilentChaos01 3 years ago

Need krpytek typhon to start on the second tier of challenges. Skulls camo is always rediculous. Its so annoying. I hate the MSMC. I ended up playing hardcore to get it gold.


Wraith 3 years ago

Well, I finally got my first gold weapon. SMAWWWW YEAAAAH!!!!!! (Bad pun FULLY intended.)

Managed to get a lucky double kill in KC with the SMAW (completing Ronin camo), then a few matches later, a guy calls in a Dragonfire. I didn't manage to kill it with the SMAW that time, but I got it the next match (same guy, too XD).

Pretty close with both the RPG and the FHJ. Just need a triple kill for the RPG (managed to get lucky hitting the tail of a Care Package helo), and I need destroy and AGR and 9 more "player controlled scorestreaks" with the FHJ.

Oddly enough, I managed to take out a hacker's LODESTAR with it, but IT DIDN'T COUNT!!!!! A few matches later, I killed a Dragonfire with it, but that didn't count either! WTF???? . . . It might actually be that you have to stay alive after you shoot the rocket, since I managed to kill a UAV with the RPG before that Care Package helo, but I got killed before it hit, the Lodestar hit me with a missile before the FHJ reached it, and the Dragonfire killed me WHILE THE FHJ WAS IN-FLIGHT. . . goddammit.

Yah I have none of the rockets gold, because i have never used them. I have teammates that use the the rockets, and do that portion of the team, but I have never gotten big into secondary weapons, and tend to stick to primaries, and the objectives..


WARMAN7785 3 years ago

actually skorpion is probably the hardest to get headshot steady aim helps :)


Wraith 3 years ago

Actually, I have more trouble with the MP7 and some of the assault rifles (can't remember which ones though, at the moment) than I do with the Skorpion. Just hope you get Nuketown or Hijacked, run the laser sight, and RUSH LIKE HELL. (Unfortunately, I'm not a very good rusher. XD)

As you play over time you will get your headshots.. I find it is a LOT easier not to focus on the headshots and let them come over time.. That is not the same with assault rifles like the SMr, but with sub machine guns i HIGHLY suggest letting them coming naturally.


Wraith 3 years ago

That's pretty much what I do, I only take the time to try to line up a headshot if I actually HAVE the time to do it. XD

Since I reset, I haven't been focusing on doing the headshots thing, NOW all i focus on is keeping my SPM above 550.. Which I have been successful doing so far..

The bloodthirsty medals are difficult to get with the vector k10.


Johnrr631992 profile image

Johnrr631992 3 years ago from Tampa, Florida Author

Vektor should be one of the easier guns to get bloodthirsties with.. Try changing your attachments or maybe game mode up a bit..


Wraith 3 years ago

I agree with Johnrr on this one. I have a friend who's gotten a LOT of nuclears (might've been at least one with each gun, I think), but the setup he recommends for getting an 'easy' (lmfao) nuclear has a Vector with a suppressor and extended clip. Personally, I might take fast mags, but hey. Whatever works for you.

I PRESTIGED MY GUN I I STILL DO NOT HAVE THE GOLDEN CAMO


Johnrr631992 profile image

Johnrr631992 3 years ago from Tampa, Florida Author

@DSUL.. Prestiging is not a requirement for gold.. You need to get 100 headshots assuming it's a requirement, and follow all the required steps from there..


Gyygghgdgnncdvbfcvhffd 3 years ago

I can't get the last camo before gold wit my shotty the remington i nead 5 more bloodthirsty but i got 5 but i can't get 5 more of them.
