How to unlock Diamond camo in CoD: Vanguard

  • Unlock the Gold Camo for every gun in a CoD: Vanguard weapon class

Getting your hands on the game’s Diamond camo is slightly more difficult. To unlock the sparkly weapon skin, you’ll need to unlock the Gold version for every gun in a weapon class.

For example, if you want to rock Diamonds on your STG-44, you’ll need to unlock the Gold camo for all seven Assault Rifles in Vanguard at launch.

How to unlock Atomic camo in CoD: Vanguard

  • Unlock the Diamond camo for all Vanguard weapon classes

The Atomic camouflage is by far the most difficult to unlock, but because of this, it’s also the rarest. Getting your hands on this skin will require willpower, determination, and skill, as you’ll need to unlock Diamond in every weapon class in the game.

That doesn’t just mean popular classes like SMGs or Sniper Rifles, but Shotguns, Launchers, and even Secondary weapons like Pistols. All the effort is worth it though, as the Atomic is definitely one of the most beautiful camos in the game.

All three camos are definitely going to take time to unlock, but players will already be racing to become the first to get their hands on the elusive Atomic camo.

Mastery camos are also back in Zombies, with Golden Viper, Plague Diamond, and Dark Aether all available for players to unlock.
