How to unlock Gold, Platinum, and Damascus in Modern Warfare


Unlock all camos on one weapon. For example, when you complete all camo challenges for the AK47. You will then unlock the Gold camo on the AK47.

Top Tips For Unlocking Camos in Modern Warfare

Woodland Camos Tips

125 headshots

We recommend using some sort of sights on your weapon. This will make it a lot easier to aim for the head when taking shots. You need to become more conscious about aiming a little higher to maximize your chances of getting a headshot.

After you aim to shoot, quickly pull your crosshairs up towards the head. Always make sure you’re aiming for the higher chest region. The recoil should kick the weapon up towards the head.

Digital Camo Tips

160 crouched kills

This is not a difficult one to accomplish by any means. Your best bet is to play more objective-based game modes such as headquarters or domination. This way you can crouch somewhere and wait for the enemies to approach the objective.

Urban Camo Tips

75 Hip Fire kills

We recommend attaching a laser sight to your weapon. This will make it much easier to get hip fire kills. The laser sight is very effective in Modern Warfare.

Splinter Camo Tips

100 Longshots

For Splinter camos, you need to turn into a dirty camper. Get your claymores and pitch up in a room with a long-range of sight over the battlefield.

If you’re finding it harder to get longshots, we suggest playing realism mode. Enemies die much quicker in realism mode so longshots are not that hard to pull off.

Topo Camo Tips

100 mounted kills

Mounted kills are quite easy to get. Just mount yourself up somewhere strategic and wait for enemies. While going for Topo camos try to combine it with longshots to do both camos at the same time. Just make sure you have both unlocked first.

Headquarters is a good game mode to play for mounted kills. Set yourself up in the HQ and wait for enemies to run towards it. There’s always some easy pickings.

Stripes Camo Tips

50 kills shortly after reloading

The fastest way to unlock these camos is to play objective-based games like headquarters and domination. If the enemy has the headquarters and you are about to breach. Simply fire a shot off, reload, then rush in all guns blazing.

Skulls Camo Tips

3 kills without dying 35 times

This one shouldn’t be too difficult. We suggest playing Groundwar. Here there are lots of enemies and on big maps. So it shouldn’t take too long to complete. Just remember to die after every three kills you get if you want to speed up the process as much as possible.
