Modern Warfare Obsidian Camo Guide

Included in this week’s big Call of Duty: Modern Warfare update is a new camo challenge that should take completionists quite some time to finish. For those unaware, this is the all-new Modern Warfare Obsidian camo. If you’re not sure how get it, read on below for our quick and easy guide.

Modern Warfare Obsidian camo guide:

First thing to note, players DO NOT NEED Damascus camo unlocked in order to grind for Obsidian. You just need to obtain gold camo for that particular weapon, and you’re set to grind for the Obsidian challenges.

As for the Obsidian challenges, which has different targets for each weapon type, check it out below.

Assault Rifles:

  • 15 kills in a match, 200x (Note: The RAM-7 challenge seems to be bugged as it only requires 15 kills in a match 150x).

Submachine guns (SMGs), and Lightmachine guns (LMGs):

  • 15 kills in a match, 125x


  • 15 kills in a match, 100x

Riot Shield:

  • 750 kills


  • 10 kills in a match, 125 times


  • 5 kills in a match, 150 times

PILA, JOKR, Strela launchers:

  • Destroy 100 streaks or vehicles

Note that the kills required stack in one match, so if you get 30 Assault Rifle kills in one match, that takes shaves off two out of your 200-match requirement and so forth. Kills are counted in blocks, so if you get 29 kills in a match, that’s still only one block off your 200 or 150-match count.

Doing the math, getting Obsidian will take thousands of kills for each weapon, and remember: you already need gold camo unlocked before you can do this. So this is going to be a long grind for most players.

What are your thoughts on this camo? Did Infinity Ward make the grind a bit too much or just right? Let us know down in the comments.
