Cold War Zombies Camo Challenges Guide: Everything You Need To Know

The most important component to any military-grade firearm is, without a doubt, a dazzling paint job — bullets being a close second, of course. Seasoned vets of the CoD franchise will recognize the Camo challenges system, while newer players new to the ways of CoD need only understand that Camos are nothing but skins for your weapon.

The Camo Challenges equate to achievements, usually involving kill totals and methods, to earn specific skins for specific weapons.

A trio of extra-fancy skins, the Mastery Camos, can be unlocked by working your way through whole sets of Camos and are a shiny badge of pride for the extra “dedicated.” Down below we’ll run you through each and every one of the Black Ops Cold.

Grunge

Grunge is the easiest set of camos to acquire — just slay a couple thousand zombies (i.e. a couple thousand more than any of us would manage in a real apocalypse. Let’s be honest.) To unlock all of Grunge’s camos, you’ll need to accrue a total of 2500  kills — which equates to, let’s be honest now, roughly one weekend for you these days.

Liquid

For Liquid, you’ll have to aim a little higher. Literally. Like right between the eyes. The Liquid camo set is your reward for staying true to OG-Zombie lore and aiming for the head. As you should. Thankfully, headshots are easier to track this time around with new, bright yellow damage markers for headshots.

Brushstroke

The Brustroke camos operate almost exactly like Grunge — in that you need only a ridiculous number of generic Zombie kills — except more satisfying; for Brushstroke all 2500 kills need to be made with your weapon Pack-A-Punched.

To get every skin in the Infection camo set, you’ll need to float like a butterfly that just took an adrenaline shot to the chest and sting like a bee armed with double-chainsaws — i.e. you’ll have to go 10 times with a 20+ kill streak without getting hit once.

Mastery Camos

The Mastery Camos are the icing on the festering, ooze-ridden cake that is Zombies mode and are, without a doubt, the single most effective lure to attract the “other” CoD players out of their multiplayer haven and into the bizarro-land that is Zombies mode. Be ready to grind like

The coveted Gold Viper camo is obtained by completing all 35 camos for a specific weapon.

Once you’ve obtained all of the Gold Viper camos for a specific weapon class, you’ll receive the Plague Diamond mastery camo for the entire set.

Black Aether Master Camo

Last, and certainly not least, is the Black Aether camo — only unlockable once the Plague Diamond Mastery Camo for every single weapon set has been unlocked. This is, as far as its place on the Camo list goes, the holy grail of Zombies weapon skins and one that’ll take a heck of a lot of grinding to complete.

But what a glorious, zombie-infested grind it is.
