Gold camo is back in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and now there’s a new Platinum and mastery camo called ‘Damascus too – here’s what you need to do to unlock them.

Infinity Ward have taken weapon customization to the next level already for Modern Warfare, with a total of 103 camos available to unlock through gameplay for every single weapon.

Each weapon has ten camo ‘categories’, which each have a further ten variants inside, all of which are earned through leveling up the weapon and completing challenges like kills and headshots.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare camo categories

The ten weapon categories, earned by ranking up the weapon’s level, are as follows:

  • Spray Paint
  • Woodland 
  • Digital 
  • Urban
  • Splinter 
  • Topo
  • Tiger
  • Stripes 
  • Reptile 
  • Skulls

Once each category is unlocked, and you have then completed each challenge within for the ten variants, you will have a total of 100 camos, but there are still three more to earned.

Infinity WardThere’s 103 camos for every weapon – including gold, platinum and Damscus.

How to unlock Gold camo

Like previous games, gold camo is earned by earning all other camos for a weapon, in this case 100, essentially mastering that weapon fully. 

How to unlock Platinum camo

Following on from gold, you will need to complete all camos for all weapons in a certain class, for example, gold on every Assault Rifle. This will then unlock Platinum on these weapons.

How to unlock Mastery camo: Damascus

Platinum is not the top tier, however, as once you have managed to earn platinum on every single weapon in the game, you will unlock the weapon mastery camo, called ‘Damascus’.

We don’t have any image of this camo yet, but Infinity Ward told CharlieINTEL that it has an “oil-slick”  appearance.

Each year, dedicated players and streamers will race to unlock the mastery camo, but we can expect it to take a bit longer this time around, considering they will need to unlock 100 of them on every weapon in the game first.

Everything from new maps to incoming Operators and plenty more has all spilled out early, with new Black Ops Cold War leaks revealing a bunch of content coming with the Season 1 update.

We’re still a few days out from the arrival of Season 1, though new Black Ops Cold War leaks are coming through almost every day. From classic modes making a return, to unique in-game events on the horizon, we’ve already got a decent idea of what to expect.

However, things haven’t stopped there. The latest set of datamined content has uncovered our first-look at Season 1 maps, Operators, and more. While the names of incoming maps may have been revealed a while back, we now have a proper look at all four additions coming soon.

Additionally, there’s also a unique Season 1 Starter pack that comes boasting some exclusive rewards. Here’s a rundown on everything we now know thanks to the latest leaks.

First look at Black Ops Cold War Season 1 maps

Up first, we’ve got a quick look at four new locations coming in Season 1. They’re bite-sized pictures that simply reveal the theme of each new map. The first appears to be some kind of game show set as camera equipment and bright signs can be spotted throughout.

Next up looks to be a darker map, perhaps something underground or even a subway system given the briefcases nearby. It may have been an evacuation site. Only time will tell for this one.

The third map pictured seems to be a wide-open locale with some kind of rocket in the center. Maybe a testing facility or a fully-fledged launch site somewhere in the United States.

Last but not least, we have a simple map that looks to feature some amount of office space, shelving, and a patriotic statue of sorts. If earlier intel holds up, one of these new locations will be a fresh Zombies experience. The first appears to be confirmed for Gunfight only, meaning a close-quarters design for 2v2 combat. While the remaining two maps are for core multiplayer game modes.

It’s worth noting that not all of these are confirmed to be launching on day one. While the major update is set to introduce a ton of this new content, some of these maps could be drip-fed throughout the season to keep players coming back. 

First look at Black Ops Cold War Season 1 Operator Skins

What would a new Season in Call of Duty be without some fresh cosmetics? A few of your favorite Operators appear to be getting some new outfits in Season 1. First up is Woods with a new winter look, rocking some snow goggles, thick gloves, a beanie, and a coat.

Next is Sims who has a more casual look this time around. Rather than dressing the part for a mission, he’s wearing a simple top with some cool shades and a hat.

Last but not least is some love for the Warsaw Pact. Portnova has a new skin this Season with a vibrant red top and a matching beret.

Also part of the leaks is an entirely new skin that could be the level 100 unlock in the Season 1 Battle Pass.

This Operator comes equipped for battle with multiple grenades and ammunition pouches on his upper body. Not to mention an imposing mask to cover his presumably scarred face.

Another new Operator wears a gas mask, only has one eye, and could not be more intimidating in an all-black outfit. 

These come alongside a previously leaked Operator skin for Adler. There’s no way of telling how to unlock these items; some might be tied to the Battle Pass, while others could be acquired through challenges like their current variants.
