    Diamond Camo

      Do I really have to get gold for all of one type of weapons to unlock it. That seems a bit to much since I stressed over gold for the mcs.

                I nearly have diamond for the SMGs, but don't think I want to grind through the ARs.

                If I even lost what I have now, I'd go absolutely ape5hit!

                I think far more people would have Diamond pistols if it wasn't for the Executioner. I see a few people running around with it and I think "You poor sod".

                 

                Also, getting the SVU gold in core was difficult. I has over 1000 kills before I decided to go into Hardcore and get the last 100 one hits

                    Yep, I have Snipers, Launchers and Specials Diamond. I thought the crossbow was annoying but the executioner is in a league of its own. Played for an hour last night, I only got 9 headshots. Makes me want to bang my head against a wall sometimes lol,

                        I have got all diamond on all the guns with the exception of the pistols! For which I am working on. I found the best mode is Hardcore if you react fast enough.

                          What I did was play Core TDM, run around like a madman untill I came across a guy who is sensory disadvantaged, aimed for his head and (Usually) got a headshot.

                           

                          The only other gun I got to gold faster is the B23R, and I did that on Christmas Day (I got the 10 headshots with pistols thing more than once that day)

                        I did it on everything but my shield before I reset.. I thought it was like a major accomplishment.. but then I see diamond in like every game I play and realized it doesn't prove anything outside of wasting a lot of time.

                         

                        They should have made diamond a real accomplishment that was extremely difficult. Like tying the accomplishments into other stats and circumstances. Okay.. 100 headshots I get that. Now 50 kills with no perks at a triggered random time. Like something flashes on the screen that tells you for the next 5 mins your stuff applies towards gold... I would say tie it to your stats but boosters would just bypass that. So the random idea was a better example. This way if someone got gold.. you know. They where very lucky, and or had skill.

                         

                        That way gold would be considers a treasure.. but, diamond.. That would be like a rare drop or epic item. Because there was no way to get it unless it was the right circumstances.

                          Yes, took my 5 prestiges but so worth it. I went for AR's as thats all I use, 9 of the buggers.

                          • Re: Diamond Camo

                            I really dont care about the diamond at all,  I have lmg, assault, launchers, and smgs there but dont run it.  I do it hust to get all the calling cards.

                            • Re: Diamond Camo

                              I'm going for pistols now, but i decided to just run an smg and if i come across a camper to pull out the executioner then.

                                  I find that if I don't have a challenge to work towards (e.g. prestige, camos, etc) I lose focus...I need a goal, or the game is not rewarding/enjoyable.  That's why it's important for me.

                                    Diamond SMGs are ten a penny, go for something more interesting, less common (and better looking) like LMGs.

                                        I find the goal to get gold camos and diamond camos and weapon prestige to be strangely addicting.  Also, you get a lot of XP for obtaining the various camos and also taking your weapons to max prestige and this makes it worthwhile to me.  I'm also being forced to use different weapons. 

                                         

                                        Some of the camo challenges seem pointless and stupid, like the "Revenge" kill camos and "Bloodthirsty".  Or the worst one is the "Backfire" challenge for combat knife, which is really stupid in that it requires you to quit using the knife, and instead use a gun. I wish these were replaced with challenges that force you to get X number of kills with each attachment because then it would force me to try these different attachments and expirment.
