The hard-to-reach weapon camos from Call of Duty: Black Ops 4‘s Multiplayer are making their way to Blackout.

During a recent game update, Treyarch revealed in the patch notes that the mastery camos are soon to be rolled out within Blackout. However, players who have already unlocked the extremely difficult to reach weapon skins – such as Dark Matter – in Multiplayer, will not get their progression rolled over.

In Multiplayer, Gold camo is unlocked by unlocking every other camo available for the weapon by completing the gun’s specific challenges. Diamond camo is unlocked by unlocking the gold skin for every weapon in its specific weapon category.

TreyarchBlackout has been a major success for Treyarch.

The recent patch note led to confusion for some fans who questioned Treyarch – via Reddit – on just how the upcoming system is going work.

In a reply to a post on the Black Ops 4 subreddit, Treyarch said: “The weapon camo progression design for Blackout is a different system with its own challenges compared to Multiplayer, and Gold, Diamond, and Dark Matter unlocked in Multiplayer will not be automatically unlocked in Blackout.

“There will be different camos to unlock in Blackout on the path to Mastery Camos through a wholly new mechanic.”

So, Treyarch have switched it up on us and the usual challenge progress path has been changed.


Players will collect Paint Cans throughout the map in each match, and bank them to unlock the hard to reach weapon camos. These Paint Cans are a new resource in the world of Blackout, and players will keep what they find, even if they die and lose the game.
