Call of Duty: Warzone players have expressed their anger over the way Diamond camo looks in Season 1, calling it disrespectful to those who spent hours unlocking it.
Warzone has just been given its biggest ever update. Season 1 of Treyarch’s popular battle royale, which dropped on December 16, introduced a brand new map, Rebirth Island, as well as a series of new weapons including the Mac 10 SMG and the Groza Assault Rifle.
The new season seems to be going down very well with longtime fans, but one thing that’s dampening the experience for some players is the new Diamond weapon camo design, which has been brought across from Black Ops Cold War.
Fans will know this particular blinged-up camo is one of the most difficult to unlock in the game. It takes hours of dedication, and should be something players can proudly show off to highlight their achievement.

Unfortunately, the Diamond camo design in Warzone leaves a lot to be desired, and truly pales in comparison to the Black Ops Cold War design above, which was far more stylish. You can see it for yourself in the video below.

Warzone fans hate the “terrible” Diamond camo
The main problem seems to be that the ‘diamonds’ on the camo don’t really look like diamonds at all. They lack shine or texture and are more comparable to stone, which certainly takes away from the ‘prestigious’ nature of the design.
Fans have already taken to social media to share their frustration over the “terrible” new Diamond camo design, with many saying they’re simply refusing to use it in Warzone.
Diamond camo looks TERRIBLE on Warzone. Lol

One player accused Warzone of ‘disrespecting’ the Cold War version of Diamond camo, while another questioned, “How does a camo that takes HOURS… that was ALREADY MEDIOCRE compared to [Black Ops 4’s] diamond… LOOK LIKE THIS?”
A third chimed in: “On the snipers, specifically the Barrett, it looks horrendous. I can’t use it.”

While this is purely a cosmetic frustration that doesn’t affect gameplay, Black Ops Cold War players are facing a bug in Zombies mode that’s broken the Pack-A-Punch upgrade tool, leaving them almost defenseless in the face of hordes.
