Black Ops Cold War players are voicing their gripes with a certain camo challenge.
All Call of Duty games for the past few years have all had mastery camos available in game, and each game has its share of difficult challenges.
In Modern Warfare, the launcher challenges were long and dragged out, and players had to kill 3 players without dying 25 times with the knife and Riot Shield. In Black Ops Cold War, there’s one camo that’s for almost every weapon in the game, and it’s called Policia.
The Policia Camo
For submachine guns, the camo challenge requires close range kills (and by that we mean very close range kills), but for Assault Rifles, it requires you to take down 50 enemies taking cover from you, which makes it the most situational camo challenge in the game.
Not only do you need to kill an enemy taking cover who is looking at you, but you also need to hope the game registers the kill to the challenge, and the game can be very picky with what is registered.
In response, Reddit user “Dementor8919” took to the Black Ops Cold War subreddit to voice his frustrations.
I know it has literally never happened, at least to my knowledge, but can you PLEASE make this a different camo challenge? I hate camos where you quite literally have to depend on other people to do said thing. Please man I’m begging you. from r/blackopscoldwar
The post amassed over 5,000 upvotes over the course of a day and resulted in a wide amount of fellow reddit users to come to the post and voice their frustrations as well.
The highest comment by user “BathroomZoom” stated that Black Ops 2 did the camos best, due to the fact that you could progress your challenges during natural gameplay, vs the new challenge system where you may have to play differently or hop in a specific game mode for progress.
Many commenters also agreed with Zoom’s comment, but other comments stated that Black Ops 2’s camo grind was too easy.
Overall, it’s safe to say players aren’t very happy with this situational camo challenge in Black Ops Cold War. Perhaps Treyarch will reduce the amount of kills required to get the camo, or make the challenge more forgiving for when it registers the kills.
If you’re grinding for this camo, the best advice we have comes from Reddit user “ThyOnlySandMan” who recommends playing on Armada, where other players are often taking cover.

Cold War players want classic Black Ops 1 map to return
Cold War has featured many different Black Ops II remakes, but fans are eager for a Black Ops I map to appear in Treyarch’s latest CoD game.
Quite a few Black Ops Cold War players have made their feelings known in wanting Treyarch to put aside the Black Ops II love, and remake Black Ops I’s Havana map.
As well as creating new environments such as Yamantau, The Pines, Diesel amongst other maps, Treyarch has also brought back quite a few maps from previous titles. Eagle-eyed players will notice that the maps have all been remakes of Black Ops II maps – with only Nuketown from the first game.
However, Cold War fans would love to see this approach change in a future update by remaking a classic Black Ops I map – Havana.
In our own personal list of maps we wanted to see return in Black Ops Cold War, we singled out Havana as a strong, potential candidate.
It seems that other players have agreed with Reddit user DogeJonkins also laying claim to Cold War needing the map.
“I really want this map to be remade,” they said, with the main menu picture of the map attached to the post.
One user alluded to the fact that Treyarch has concentrated on remaking maps from one game: “If we have to have remakes instead of original content, at least have it not be BO2 (Black Ops II).”
With Season 4’s Reloaded update starting to age, it’s getting close to the point where we can start speculating on potential content for Cold War Season 5. Treyarch will surely have a surprise or two left up their sleeves as we close in on Call of Duty: Vanguard 2021.

How to get 3 free weapon Blueprints in Black Ops Cold War Season 4
Black Ops Cold War offers a few free weapon skins for players to claim in Season 4, and here’s how you can do it.
Unbeknownst to many players, Call of Duty does have several free skins for some of its many guns. Our quick guide will help to acquire them in Black Ops Cold War Season 4.
The CoD store has tons of Operators, Bundles, and various other cosmetics for players to purchase and use to customize their loadouts and characters. There are even additional goodies that are locked behind the Season’s respective Season Pass too.
But every now and again the store does contain a bundle or skin that Cold War players can claim free of charge. Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Season 4 does have some of these right now, and this is how you get can them for yourself.
Unlock free weapons Blueprints in Cold War Season 4
Claiming them isn’t particularly taxing, and you should have no problem owning them very quickly to use.
To unlock these free weapon skins in Cold War Season 4, simply:
- Start Black Ops Cold War
- Go to the main menu
- Head to ‘Create a Class’
- Select each weapon
- Choose the ‘Shop’ option
- Scroll through them until you find the skins marked ‘Free’
They will be added to your library of cosmetics for that weapon, and you can manually apply these skins to the respective guns. They may not be as obviously flashy as the Thrust Engine Blueprint for instance, but skins are a nice change of pace from conventional unlockable camos.
If any more free skins do become available to purchase, then we’ll be sure to update this guide to let you know.
