Call of Duty developers Treyarch have added a brand new system that will allow players to progress and upgrade their weapon camos in Black Ops 4’s Blackout battle royale mode. 

Players can now unlock brand new weapon camos exclusive to Blackout on their way to unlocking the Mastery Camos, which include Gold, Diamond, and Dark Matter.

With this new system going live, players who have the Gold, Diamond, and Dark Matter Mastery Camos unlocked in Multiplayer will no longer be able to use them in Blackout.

The way this new camo progression system works is players have to find and use “Paint Cans” in order to unlock the new weapon camos.

These Paint Cans can be found throughout the Blackout map each match, and can be picked up and placed in a player’s inventory just like any other loot item.

Player can manage their collection of Paint Cans in the Armory section of their game, where they can use the cans to unlock new camos.

The amount of Paint Cans needed will vary for each camo of each weapon, and the Gold camo can only be unlocked ater every other camo for that specific weapon has been unlocked first. 

Just as with Multiplayer, once the Gold camo is unlocked for every weapon in a certain class, the Diamond camo then becomes available for those weapons. Dark Matter can only be unlocked once Diamond has been achieved for every single customizable weapon in the game.

This camo progression system is fundamentally different from that of the Multiplayer, which forces players to collect headshots and complete challenges with every weapon to unlock Mastery Camos.

Blackout’s system incentivizes players to explore the map and always look to loot enemy stashes in case there are any Paint Cans left behind. The great thing about this is that all Paint Cans are the same and act as a currency, so players will not have to look for special versions to unlock certain camos. 

Furthermore, all collected Paint Cans remain in the player’s Armory, even after they die in-game, so there is no risk of losing cans to enemy players.

Returning for his final event of the Call of Duty League offseason, Team Summertime’s Davis ‘Hitch’ Edwards is hosting an enormous Black Ops 2 Invitational featuring former champions and popular content creators.

Throwback tournaments have been all the rage throughout the 2020 offseason and no one has been leading the charge quite like Hitch. Outside of hosting Warzone comps, his unique tournaments have spanned from Modern Warfare 2 to Black Ops 4. This time, his sights are set on 2012’s Black Ops 2.

Despite hackers ruining an early test for this particular event, the kinks have all seemingly been worked out. From former championship-winning teams to some of the biggest content creators, Hitch’s final event is set to be the biggest yet.

From how you can tune in, to every player joining the all-star Call of Duty event, we’ve got you covered. Here’s everything there is to know about the Black Ops 2 Invitational.

How to watch the Black Ops 2 Invitational

The final event of the offseason is set to kick off on Wednesday, October 28. Opening matchups went live at 3PM EST (12PM PT) and the broadcast will likely run for most of the day.

As per usual, it’s all expected to be featured on Hitch’s own Twitch stream which we’ve embedded below. A majority of the players and creators will likely be sharing their own perspectives throughout the event as well.

Black Ops 2 Invitational teams & bracket

Some squads feature some of the most successful Call of Duty veterans while others consist of popular streamers. Regardless, every team is stacked with FPS talent so expect some close matchups.

Standing out among the eight rosters is a true throwback. The 2014 world championship team of Crimsix, Karma, TeePee, and ACHES, will be reuniting. Formerly representing Complexity and then Evil Geniuses, these four players haven’t been on the same team since 2014.

The full list of teams competing in the Black Ops 2 Invitational can be found below.

  • Team Dr Disrespect: Dr Disrespect, ZLaner, StoneMountain64, & KingRichard
  • Team CouRageJD: CouRageJD, Parad12e, LEQIQN, & MLGImpulse
  • Team The Mob: Classify, Mako, Froste, Flyroh
  • Team Scump: Scump, Envoy, Merk, & Rambo

Here is the starting bracket for this competition, which is being updated live on the tournament’s web-page as the results from the various matches start filing in.

The biggest thing to note about this tournament’s format is that it’s being played on mouse and keyboard, unlike true competitive Call of Duty, which has always been played using controllers.
