Infinity Ward have confirmed a master camo for Modern Warfare in Season 3, and players won’t have to unlock the prestigious Damascus skins in order to obtain it.

Though the devs didn’t give an image alongside the announcement, Co-Design Director of Multiplayer at Infinity Ward, Joe Cecot, confirmed that the camo would “take a long time” for collectors to add the skin to their catalog.

Detailing the camo even further, Cecot explained that unlocking it will only require players to have gold on a weapon before they can start making progress for it.

Players won’t need to grind for Damascus to unlock the master camo.

But just because you don’t need Damascus doesn’t mean that it’ll be easy to get. The master camo should take a decent amount of time for players to grind in Season 3.

As it is, if someone wants the prerequisite Gold camo for a weapon, they first need to unlock every single variant for that gun. That includes the 10 different styles in every category of the weapon, making it a painstaking ordeal.

But even that won’t be long enough, seeing as you need gold just to make progress on the master camo since it’ll be the next new tier above it.

Players are going to need to grind for “a long time” to get the master camo on individual guns.

The Call of Duty community won’t have to wait long for a chance at the new skin seeing as it’ll be dropping somewhere in Season 3.

“It should be in the mid season update,” Cecot said, revealing more details on the skin. “It will require gold to be unlocked for the weapon before it will progress. It will take a long time.”

The devs have been teasing the new skin for a little while, and it’s a good sign for players anticipating the skin to have a general release window.

It’ll be interesting to see what style the master camo will take form. Skins above the gold tier have either followed a similar aesthetic like the Platinum skins or something wildly different like Demascus.

In either case, the master camo will be the next prize Modern Warfare players will spend a ton of games grinding for when it releases sometime in Season 3.

OpTic Envoy’s AK74u Black Ops Cold War loadout ahead of CDL launch

The competitive Call of Duty season is almost upon us, with the CDL launching on January 23, and Envoy’s AK74u could prove one of the most important in getting OpTic Chicago some all-important championship wins.

The AK74u is the go-to SMG for all competitive Black Ops Cold War players. While the MP5 was the main one when the game first dropped, a subsequent nerf saw the 74u take top spot and maintain it ever since.

While Envoy’s original loadout back in November was impressive, this one is a complete change-up, and seems to be the meta build for most top pros who run it.

Taking to Nuketown ‘84 for a 1v1 against teammate FormaL, both were using the AK74u — and it absolutely shreds.

The AK74u is the best-in-class SMG.

As mentioned, this looks to be the meta build for most pros, but Envoy is by far one of the most impressive SMG players in the Call of Duty League, so it definitely looks great in his hands.

Here’s the attachments Envoy uses on the gun:

  • Muzzle: Muzzle Brake 5.45
  • Barrel: 9.3” Extended
  • Underbarrel: Spetsnaz Speedgrip
  • Stock: KGB Skeletal Stock
  • Handle: GRU Elastic Wrap

Attachments at 8:40

If you’re looking to maximize your abilities with an SMG in hand, Envoy is one of the best people to look at, and with the launch of League Play in BOCW seemingly imminent, now’s the perfect time to get used to this build.

This may look slightly different from what you see in public matches, with certain attachments banned or not viable in a competitive space, so it’s well worth familiarizing yourself with.

Whether or not this remains the meta throughout the year isn’t yet known; we expect a number of weapon balancing changes throughout the year, but how this affects the 74u isn’t clear.
