Gold Guns Tips for Black Ops 3
Even though you may find it harder to play at first, Hardcore playlists are great for going after headshots. In this mode everyone has limited health and it is easy to earn a large number of headshots in a match simply because the recoil in some weapons brings the bullets slightly up with each shot delivering a headshot.
The video above walks through additional tips and tricks for getting more headshots, including the class setup you can use.
Although there are some Gunsmith Paintjob tutorials that let you make a gold like color, it does not cover the same area of the weapon that the gold camo does.
The new Black Ops 3 weapons will not get in the way of unlocking gold, and they should not stand in the way of unlocking Diamond and Dark Matter camos either.
