Black Ops 2: How to Get Diamond Camo

It was once the ultimate goal of Call of Duty players to unlock the shining glory that was gold camo. But now, with the release of Black Ops 2, comes a whole new camouflage – diamond! That’s right, you can now get some real bling to jazz up your weapons with. But, unfortunately, getting diamond camo in BO2 is not a simple task. It takes time, dedication a bit of skill but in the end it’s worth it. Below we give some tips for grabbing the elusive diamond camo.

How to Get Diamond Camo in Black Ops 2Black Ops 2 How to Get Diamond Camo

In order to get this rarely seen and highly sought after camo you have to do quite a bit. The first thing you need to do is decide what weapon you would want it on most. The reason for this is you only unlock it once you complete all of the weapon challenges for a particular weapon set. So if you wanted it on the MP7, for example, you’d have to complete all of the challenges for each of the SMGs in the game. If you wanted the camo on the AN-94, however, you would have to finish every challenge under the assault rifles category.

So, what does that mean exactly? What do you have to do to unlock diamond? Well, there are a ton of challenges for the weapons. It’s going to be a long, tedious process to finish them all. But here are some of the things you’ll have to do (and remember you have to do these for EACH weapon in the weapon category you want the diamond camo in):

  • Get 50 kills with no attachments
  • Get 50 kills with no perks
  • Get 5 multikills
  • Get 10 scorestreaks
  • Get 10 longshots
  • Get 100 headshots

NOTE: You do NOT lose weapon camos when you prestige your player. All unlocked camos remain available at every level no matter if you prestige or not.

Now, this might not look like a lot and you’re probably thinking, well I can get most of those all at the same time… NOPE! Unfortunately, these challenges unlock in sequence. This means you have to do them in order. So there is no way to earn them all at the same time. And you have to complete each of these challenge sets for each of the weapons in the weapon category you want diamond camo in. Sucks, right? Well, the camo IS supposed to be a reward for really dedicated players. So don’t feel bad.

Tips for Getting Diamond Camo

If you really want the camo on one of your weapons you’re going to need to come up with a plan of action. For example, if you wanted diamond on the MP7 you need to make a progressive action plan. So work through each gun individually. Get every challenge for the MP7 first, then the PDW-57, then the Vector K10, the MSMC, Chicom CQB and, finally, the Skorpion EVO.

Considering how many kills you’ll get going through these it’s safe to say you’re going to end up going through several prestige levels before earning diamond. This means you won’t have access to some of the guns you’re trying to unlock challenges for. To make simple work of it, simply use the permanent unlock on each of the weapons in the category you want the camo in as you reach each prestige.

Easiest Weapon Set to Earn Diamond

If you just want the diamond camo just to say you have it, you CAN get it fairly quickly. How? By getting it for your special weapon set. This includes the Crossbow, Ballistic Knife and Combat Knife. It’s the easiest because there are only 3 weapons to get all of the challenges for. But, you will have to be a skilled player to accomplish this. Special weapons aren’t the easiest to get kills with. And when you have players coming at you with fully automatic rifles while you’re trying to stab them, it may become a headache. Try to be sneaky, camp if you have to (yes, we hate camping as much as anyone, but it works for this), do whatever is necessary to earn those special kills.

Also, by working toward the diamond camouflage for your weapons you’ll be earning tons of experience points. You earn a significant amount of points for each challenge you complete so you’ll be leveling up pretty quickly by doing this.
