How to Get Dark Matter Camo in Black Ops 3

how to get dark matter camo in black ops 3

If you’re wondering how to get dark matter camo in Black Ops 3, you’re definitely at the right place. Dark matter is certainly a very slick looking camo, with animated colors of pink, purple and black blending together to give it that fine look. However, if you thought it was going to be easy to get it, you’re wrong.

How to Get Dark Matter in Black Ops 3 – What Do You Have to Do?how to get dark matter camo in black ops 3

Dark matter is without a doubt one of the hardest camos to get in any Call of Duty game, let alone Black Ops 3. Diamond camo was pretty challenging to get in Black Ops 2, right? Well to get dark matter camo you’ll have to get every single weapon class in the game diamond.

In order to get all of the weapons in a class diamond, for example assault rifles, you’d have to unlock the gold camo for every single assault rifle. Upon doing that, you would have diamond assault rifles! In other words, you need to get gold camo on every weapon in the game to get dark matter.

Now I’m going to show you how to unlock the diamond camo for each weapon class and the fastest ways that you can do this!

How to Get Diamond Camo on Assault Rifles

For each assault rifle, you will need to get the following:how to get diamond camo on assault rifles black ops 3

  • 100 headshots
  • 10 longshots
  • 50 kills with 5 attachments and an optic equipped
  • 50 kills with no attachments equipped
  • 2 rapid kills 5 times
  • 5 bloodthirsty medals

This is probably the easiest weapon class to get diamond on Black Ops 3, as all of the assualt rifles are at least fairly decent and the challenges are pretty straight forward. The only thing that may cause you some trouble with the assault rifles is getting 100 headshots for each of them. I would recommend for you to aim at the torso and then the recoil of your weapon and your flinch as you get shot will often get you a nice headshot. If you’re still struggling with this, then you could go on hardcore mode and just aim for the head.

How to get Diamond Camo on LMGs

For each LMG, you will need to get the following:how to get diamond camo on lmg black ops 3

  • 100 headshots
  • 10 revenge kills
  • 50 kills with 5 attachments and an optic equipped
  • 50 kills with no attachments equipped
  • 2 rapid kills 5 times
  • 5 bloodthirsty medals

Again, the 100 headshots is going to be the only real challenge here. I would recommend putting on an optic that you feel comfortable with, as this will make you more accurate. Of course, it would be easier to do this on hardcore, as you only need to get a couple of shots to the head and you have yourself a kill. You could get headshots on core with LMGs with slow fire rates, especially the Gorgon, as you can aim your shots more accurately.

How to get Diamond Camo on SMGs

For each SMG, you will need to get the following:how to get diamond camo on smg black ops 3

  • 100 headshots
  • 10 revenge kills
  • 50 kills with 5 attachments and an optic equipped
  • 50 kills with no attachments equipped
  • 2 rapid kills 5 times
  • 5 bloodthirsty medals

You could complete all of these challenge pretty easily in core, just as long as you aim around the torso to get more headshots. Of course, like I have suggested throughout this whole guide, it is technically easier in hardcore, but hardcore isn’t everybody’s cup of tea.

How to get Diamond Camo on Shotguns

For each shotgun, you will need to get the following:how to get diamond camo on shotguns black ops 3

  • 100 one-shot kills
  • 10 revenge kills
  • 50 kills with 5 attachments and an optic equipped
  • 50 kills with no attachments equipped
  • 2 rapid kills 5 times
  • 5 bloodthirsty medals

Well let’s just be thankful that we don’t have to get 100 headshots with these things, eh? There would be no easy way out of that. However, the one-shot kills can still be pretty tricky. With the pump action shot guns, like the Argus and KRM-262, one-hit kills will be easy enough in core. However, with the other shotguns you need to be right up in your enemies face to get a one hit kill; therefore, once again, I’m going to recommend hardcore mode to you, specifically hardcore free for all, as it is less ‘campy’ and there are more people to kill. Stick to close quarter areas, such as buildings and small alleyways. Don’t go running about like you would with an assault rifle.

How to get Diamond Camo on Sniper Rifles

For each sniper rifle, you will need to get the following:how to get diamond camo on snipers black ops 3

  • 100 one-shot kills
  • 10 longshot kills
  • 50 kills with 5 attachments and an optic equipped
  • 50 kills with no attachments equipped
  • 2 rapid kills 5 times
  • 5 bloodthirsty medals

Playing on hardcore will definitely make it so much easier to get sniper rifles diamond on Black Ops 3. Let’s face it, it would take ages to get 100 one-shot kills with the Drakon on core, but on hardcore, every clean shot with a sniper rifle guarantees you a kill. Also, hardcore makes it so much easier to get kills with dreadful weapons like the P-06. That thing has got to be the worst ‘sniper rifle’ in CoD history.

How to Get Diamond Camo on Pistols and the Knife

Now here is where it starts to get challenging. In order to get diamond pistols, you have to have every single secondary weapon gold! Also, in order to get diamond for the knife, you need to have all of the pistols gold.

In order to get diamond pistols, for each pistol you need to get:how to get diamond camo on pistols black ops 3

  • 100 headshots
  • 10 longshots
  • 50 kills with 5 attachments and an optic equipped
  • 50 kills with no attachments eqipped
  • 50 kills without any perks equipped
  • 2 rapid kills 5 times
  • 5 bloodthirsty medals

I don’t think you even need me to tell you that you need to go on hardcore to get this challenge done. 100 headshots is gonna take you a while to get. I would recommend playing hardcore free for all or hardcore kill confirmed, as these are the most fast paced hardcore modes. Try to be aiming down your sight as much as possible, as you will most likely win the gunfight in hardcore if you shoot first. Remember, being accurate is more important than just spraying; aiming for the head in hardcore is going to be the quickest way to get these challenges done.

In order to get diamond camo for the knife, you will need to get:

  • 200 kills
  • 10 backstabber medals
  • 5 survivor medals
  • 5 revenge medals
  • Kill 5 enemies with their own weapons after stabbing them with your knife initially.
  • 5 bloodthirsty medals.

For once, I’m going to advise you to go on core for this one! Play 24/7 nuketown if it is available, as you want to be playing as many close quarter maps as possible. It’s useful to have concussion grenades equipped whilst doing this, as it will significantly slow your enemies down, making them easier to knife. Smoke grenades are also a viable option.

Also, the perks dead silence and awareness will be really helpful, so you will be able to hear your enemies coming, but they won’t hear you. Also, be clever with your specialist abilities! I would recommend vision pulse or active camo for getting kills with the knife, as this allows you to either see where your enemies are or you will be more stealthy.

The only challenge that you probably won’t get naturally here is the one where you have to kill 5 enemies with their own weapons after stabbing them. Just pick up an enemies weapon after you’ve stabbed them straight away and keep doing this until you get the challenge done.

How to get Diamond Camo on Rocket Launchers

Regardless of how good you are at Black Ops 3, it’s gonna take you a while to get rocket launchers gold. In order to get diamond rocket launchers, you need to:how to get diamond camo on laucnhers black ops 3

  • Destroy 100 scorestreaks
  • Get 10 direct impact kills
  • Destroy 5 scorestreaks in one game
  • Destroy two scorestreaks quickly after each other
  • Destroy 5 talons/cerberuses
  • Destroy 10 turrets (guardian, hardened sentry, power cell)

This is just a matter of having to find all of the scorestreaks you need to destroy. One thing you can do to speed this up is to throw care packages to your opponents and destroy whatever they get from them. Also, if you want to make this process as quick as possible, you don’t want to be running a 6 man team with your try-hard friends (unless they’re crap), because your opponents aren’t going to get any scorestreaks up if you’re just destroying them every game.

Therefore, I would recommend playing solo to get this challenge done. Furthermore, it’s easiest to earn scorestreaks on game modes such as kill confirmed and domination, so I would recommend playing game modes as such.

  1. That is a lot of work for one weapon camo, can you access that camo on zombies?

    • That’s a good question Jack – I haven’t seen or heard of dark matter being available in zombies, so I don’t think you can access it in zombies. Why don’t you grind for dark matter so you can find out for yourself?

  3. Hey James, I got a question.
    I have diamond camo in every Assault Rifle but the dark matter did not unlock what can I do?

    Reply
    • In order to get dark matter, you have to get diamond camo on EVERY standard weapon on the game. This means all AR’s, SMG’s, LMG’s, Shotguns, Snipers, Secondary weapons and combat knife. However, you don’t have to get any of the new weapons diamond, such as the wrench or butterfly knife in order to get dark matter!

    • You need to unlock diamond camo for all classes in order to unlock dark matter.

    • Hi there, Kajex, great question!

      I believe that you HAVE to get the combat knife gold to get dark matter.

  6. The shot guns need updated as 2 of them do require head shots in order to get gold on them. The haymaker and brecci. The key and Argus do require one shot kills however.

  9. Does it have to be online, or can I do it on a private lobby?

  10. Do i have to get gold on the prizefighters too ? Because everybody has them

      • Every gun you have unlocked and the bonus weapons youve gotten through supply drops need to be conpleted for dark matter

        Reply
        • Ok, thanks for letting me know Luke!

          Reply
        • That’s not true. The weapons gotten through supply drops doesn’t need to be gold for dark matter.
