Fastest way to get Damascus Camo in Modern Warfare

The grind to Modern Warfare’s most prestigious skins can be a long and annoying road, but it seems like someone cracked the code to make easy progress toward Damascus camos in the game.

Every gun in Modern Warfare has its own set of challenges to accomplish and camos to unlock, but the Gold and Platinum variants require a lot more grinding from players who hope to equip them in their games. You can choose to unlock these challenges by slogging it out in Multiplayer pub matches, or by dropping into Warzone and fragging enemies to be the last man standing.

But it’s only when players unlock every single Platinum skin for every gun that they can finally reap the rewards of the elusive Damascus camos – making it easy to see why so many players give up on the grind before long.

Shaydan- via RedditPlayers will have to get every Gold camo, then Platinum, to finally be able to claim Damascus.

To make life much easier for Modern Warfare’s completionists, Reddit user ‘mmmbbb’ shared a trick they came across in their matches to “alleviate some pain in the camo grind.”

They recommend equipping Spotter, the perk that lets you see enemy equipment, field upgrades, and killstreaks through walls. Additionally, players should have a weapon fitted with the FMJ attachment.

With this combo, players can “find an enemy claymore you can safely shoot, you can crouch, reload and hipfire, and it will count toward not only those challenges but also your main kill challenge.”

Infinity WardDamascus camos can feel impossible to acquire, especially with some of the game’s more demanding weapons.

The trick will also count for “5 or 0 attachment and your three killstreaks,” so this method helps with cleaning up the more annoying challenges marked for every gun.

Even though players will still have to grind out a considerable amount of games, this will give players a much easier roadmap to follow when going for Damascus.

The user even noted that in a typical game of Ground War, shooting down six UAV’s in a single life goes a long way since it counts as “two 3-killstreaks, six kills, six crouch/mount kills, reload kills, etc.”

Infinity WardGround War gives players better chances to find enemy equipment and killstreaks to count toward their Damascus grind.

Other players looking for a way to quickly get Damascus were surprised, saying that the tips “halved my Damascus grind time” if the method pans out. With the new addition of the Obsidian camo from Activision, we also have more to grind for than just the alternative.

While it will still be a grind to obtain Damascus camos, setting your sights on equipment and killstreaks gives a much more streamlined way to unlocking Modern Warfare’s most exclusive skins.

Bizarre Black Ops Cold War bug is making players fall through maps

Black Ops Cold War players are facing an issue which is seeing them completely fall through the maps in the game, and nobody knows why.

As with any new release, Cold War is not without its bugs. Players claim that the game is giving them free Dark Matter camos and, perhaps worst of all, even bricking their Xbox Series X consoles.

One of the major complaints about BOCW has been the lack of maps, with just eight being available at launch — and matters are about to get even worse for Treyarch if this bug persists.

In multiple clips, we’ve seen players simply falling through the map and dying, and it doesn’t seem bound to one particular map either.

Moscow is one of the more popular maps in Black Ops Cold War — but this bug is making it difficult.

The first clip embedded below shows Sturmbrecher64 on Reddit playing out of their spawn on Garrison.

After moving behind some barrels for protection from incoming gunfire, Sturmbrecher just drops right through the floor, even granting his enemy the kill!

Sturmbrecher isn’t the only victim, though, as professional player Dylan ‘Envoy’ Hannon of OpTic Chicago also found himself flying under the map randomly when trying to hold spawns on Moscow Hardpoint.

Needless to say, he didn’t hold the spawns, and actually isn’t the first major problem pros have found on Moscow: his OpTic teammate Matthew ‘FormaL’ Piper actually found himself stuck in a glass window, unable to move when attempting to rotate to a different bombsite, with the only option being to throw a nade at his own feet or — in this lucky instance — have Envoy ‘punch’ him out of the spot.

It’s not clear yet whether these points specifically on each map are causing problems for players, or if it’s random, but it’s evidently something that is an issue across the game in general, so Treyarch will likely be finding ways to fix it up as soon as possible.
