Vanguard Mastery camos: how to unlock Gold, Diamond, and Atomic camos in Vanguard

Looking to grind your way to Vanguard's Atomic camo? Here's how you can do it

An integral part of the Call of Duty multiplayer experience is the camo grind – completing challenges to unlock camos for your weapons to show the lobby you mean business. Things are no different in Call of Duty: Vanguard, and there are three stunning Mastery camos to unlock to prove you’re the ultimate completionist.

In Vanguard, the most prestigious camos are Gold, Diamond, and the absolute pinnacle for this year’s game, Atomic. In Black Ops Cold War, it was the mystifying Dark Matter Ultra that was the hardest camo to obtain, but in Vanguard, the more eclectic Atomic is the one that players will be grinding towards.

These three camos are the ultimate flex for any CoD player, and they certainly look the part. But unlocking these camos is no easy task and sometimes requires hundreds of hours of playtime. We’re on hand to let you know which challenges you need to complete to unlock Gold, Diamond, and Atomic camos in Call of Duty: Vanguard.

  • Diamond
  • Atomic

From the iconic designs of Gold and Diamond, to the vibrant and hypnotic colour scheme of Atomic, these three camos are the most prestigious in Call of Duty: Vanguard.

How to unlock Gold camo in Vanguard

While it may take a fair bit of time, unlocking Gold camo for a gun in Vanguard is a simple procedure. You have to complete every other camo challenge for that individual weapon – there are ten in total – and once you’ve done that you will be awarded the Gold camo for that specific gun.

How to unlock Diamond camo in Vanguard

Unlocking Diamond camo for your Vanguard weapons is again a simple-sounding concept on paper, but one that needs a lot of time and effort. To get Diamond for your gun, you need to have unlocked Gold camo for every gun in a certain weapon class.

For example, if you want to get Diamond camo for your MP40 Vanguard class, then you’ll need to unlock Gold camo for every SMG in the game.

How to unlock Atomic camo in Vanguard

To get the Atomic camo in Vanguard you have to be the ultimate completionist. Atomic will be unlocked as soon as you earn Diamond camo for every weapon class in the game – that’s everything from assault rifles, to shotguns, to even melee weapons.

It’s a tall order, and one that will take you weeks or months of grinding to pull off.

So if you were on the fence as to whether you’d be dedicated and skilled enough to attempt unlocking these awesome Vanguard Mastery camos, hopefully these challenge requirements have made your mind up for you.
