Call of Duty: Vanguard players use glitch to unlock rare gun camo

It’s formally Call of Task season, and gamers are currently pressing their method through Call of Task: Lead’s online multiplayer to unlock weapon camouflages — showing they’re the very best and most devoted fans. The Atomic camouflage is especially difficult to get (and cool-looking), needing gamers to open Diamond camouflage on all weapon classes. However some gamers are cheating their method into the benefit.

Nanikos, a Call of Duty leaker and data miner on Twitter, tweeted a picture of themselves using the camo and then a follow-up on how to activate it. The video just shows Nanikos click the “none” camo box multiple times until it eventually appears on the weapon. This glitch shouldn’t be replicated, as it’s clearly unintended, and as Call of Duty blog CharlieIntel calls out, it could potentially result in punishment by Activision.

The Atomic camo is a rainbow of neon colors, making it very noticeable. The gaudy look is what most gamers want for a camouflage that requires this much grind. And it’s all this grind that makes this glitch so disappointing for fans. Having this rare, recognizable item is a major aspiration that will take many players weeks, if not months, to earn legitimately.

Activision and Sledgehammer games will likely patch the exploit in a few days or weeks, which will almost certainly remove the camouflage from players who unlocked it via this problem.
