While the Cold War diamond camo might look unappealing for some, it is still one of the rarest camos in Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War. It is incredibly bright and might even lead to the opposite of what camouflage is supposed to do.

Mostly, it is for showing off your renowned status as a master of the game.

Diamond camo is the second hardest unlockable and one of the most coveted things to unlock. This guide will help you how to get diamond camo in Cold War.

Unlocking Diamond Camo in Black Ops Cold War

To unlock the diamond camo in Cold War, you need to unlock all gold camos in a particular weapon category which are assault rifles, submachine guns, tactical rifles, light machine guns, and sniper rifles. Unlocking the gold camos in assault rifles will unlock the diamond camo for all assault rifles as well.

This is the second hardest camo to unlock in Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War. Unlocking the gold camo for one weapon will already take you upwards of 20 hours of playing and to do all that for each weapon in one category just makes it even more of a grind.

You will have to reach weapon level 50 on every weapon in a category to have the ability to unlock the challenges that you still have to complete. It is best to play normally like you would and just keep track of the challenges you are missing out on when you are nearing weapon level 50.

You still have to finish the last few challenges when your weapon reaches weapon level 50 so you do not have to rush out these challenges before reaching that.

Learning to play each weapon will take a great amount of time and you can check out our guides for weapons such as the XM4, the AK47, and the M16. We also have guides on every weapon on our website if you would like to read them.

Tips and Tricks for Unlocking Diamond Camo

There are a variety of ways of unlocking the diamond camo but it is more based on what type of gamer you are. If you are just going to casually play the game, you might reach the next title’s release even before unlocking this bad boy out.

To be more efficient, keep playing normally and switch between weapons in the same category you want to unlock the diamond camo. Only start looking out for the challenges when you get near the max weapon level or have the ability to unlock the last few challenges to turn a weapon to gold.

You can also play zombie mode with your loadouts and increase weapon level there if ever you feel burnt out and want a change of pace. It is not faster but Call of Duty Cold War zombies is pretty entertaining.

You can also find these tips useful from our separate guide on leveling up faster. There are ways to level your weapon faster such as getting more kills, focusing on medals, and getting killstreaks.


The diamond camo is a slick and stylish skin to have but I would have to say that it has some disadvantages. While it is named a camouflage, it does the opposite because of how bright your weapon would look by equipping this.

Everything but the attachments are diamond while your attachments are also colored bright. This is just a great way to flex on your opponents on top of performing gruesome finishers. If you have unlocked this diamond camo, you are one of the best and loyal players of Call of Duty as it is just as difficult as attaining multiple levels of prestige.
