Clever trick makes completing Cold War camos with RPG simple
The Science camo challenge has caused problems for Black Ops Cold War players desperate to earn the game’s best camos. But one player has made a discovery that should make the RPG challenge much easier in CoD.
Once you make the decision to try and get Diamond or Dark Matter camo, you’re basically committed to seeing it through. The only problem is that many arduous challenges lie in your path making it a difficult endeavor.
Since the game’s launch, players have complained about the game’s infamous “behind cover” challenge but there’s also been the odd helpful method along the way. There was the clever Dark Mater gun skip exploit and also one for Diamond camo as well that unlocked Diamond camo immediately.
This RPG fix isn’t quite as dramatic, but it makes one of the game’s most frustrating challenges a lot simpler, allowing players to use the Cigma for a large part of it instead.
When it comes to launchers, the Cigma is head and shoulders above the rest due to its ease of use and lock-on capabilities.
This led to one curious player testing out the possibilities when it comes to the Launcher Science camo challenge that requires players to get “3 Scorestreak or Vehicle kills in a single game 10 times.”
The Cigma is born and bred for this kind of task, but the manual aiming of the RPG is almost impossible. However, months after the game’s release, Matthew106 has learned of an easy way to complete the RPG challenge.
“I don’t know why this works, but I was able to switch from hoping for tanks and people AFK on jetskis and motorcycles to playing normally on Nuketown and shooting the first care package or sentry gun that came my way.
“I can only assume that the game checks to see how many scorestreak destruction medals you have when you destroy a new scorestreak and checks to see if the number of medals is three or more, meaning it doesn’t care how the first two streaks were destroyed, it just only does the check when the RPG destroys one.”
So to clarify, Black Ops Cold War seems to let you destroy the first two vehicles using a Cigma and then allow you to destroy the third Scorestreak or Vehicle with an RPG.
This eradicates much of the pain players need to go through to take down the first two objects with RPGs. So if you’re still struggling to achieve Dark Matter and this challenge put you off, now you have a solution.
